    Looking at replacing PSU

    I run a corsair rm650i which is great option! For reference, the build in my sig only draws about 350-400 watts, so a 650 is more than enough for your needs.

    Mjölnir - White Lightning 2.0

    Backstory: I got a fantastic deal on a RTX 2080, so I decided to go a bit ham and #sendit with an entirely new water cooling setup, borrowing parts from another build of mine. For reasons that don't much matter here, I have two PC's, one is a 6700k @ 4.6 GHZ and a GTX 1080 FTW @ 1999 MHz, all on water (currently this is my sig, will soon change once this build is finished). I have another machine I built with a 8700k @ 5 GHz on a hyper 212 Evo and a GTX 1070 FTW I more or less got for free from a buddy. With this new 2080, I figured it would be stupid not to pair it with the 8700k which isn't my main machine. Its more of a family use/backup for me. Parts: 8700k EVGA RTX 2080 XC Ultra MSI Z390-A Pro (got this basically for free with the 8700k at a micro center sale, only reason I even have a 8700k tbh) 4x8GB DDR4 3000MHz C15 Corsair LPX Samsung 950 Pro NVMe 512 GB Samsung 830 Pro 256 GB x2 RAID 0 Corsair RM650i Sound BlaterX EA-5 Alphacool XT45 X- Flow 420 Alphacool UT60 280 EK Vector RTX 2080 EK Supremacy Classic RGB Noctua NF-A14 PWM Chromax x3 Noctua NF-P14s Redux PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 3/8 ID Elegant White Corsair Commander Pro Fractal Design Define S2 Gunmetal The Plan: The plan is to use the UT60 up front, with the Redux fans in push. These parts are being reused from my old setup which is why I didn't just buy new chromax fans for this rad. No point to me, just would up the price by ~50 bucks for no real gain. Under idle the front fans will be off completely anyways which is how I have my current setup. With this much rad space, I am curious how long I will be able to run with no fans at all, just as a fun test. I do plan to run the top fans on the 420 rad at about 450-500 rpm at idle as the goal here is dead silent PC, even under game load. Also, I am not 100% sure I will be able to fit the front fans/rad/pump without a bit of case modification, but it should just fit based off some measurements I got from a S2 owner. The front opening should be about 170-175mm, and after adding all of my parts up, 60 for rad, 25 for fans, and I believe 76 for the D5 pump from EK, it should just fit. I will 3D print a mount for the pump as it wouldn't fit mounted to the rad like normal. It will need to be right up against the rad. First part showed up yesterday, everything else should be in today. Let the build commence!

    New Case Time!

    I got in touch with a guy on reddit who was able to get me some measurements. It looks like the removable opening in the front of the PSU shroud is about 175mm, which, until tomorrow night when I will be at my PC to perfectly measure... should work. 60mm rad + 25mm fan thickness + 78mm pump = 163mm lol. Its close, but may just fit without modification! If its really that close tho, even if it doesn't fit I can dremel the PSU shroud a bit with a nice little rubber molding strip to make it look fine. So we should be ok, but I will know for sure hopefully in a few weeks once all the parts show up.

    New Case Time!

    I may not be opposed to that, but then the filter won’t be present anymore, correct? Maybe? I guess I could always just sell my 60mm 280 and pick up a thinner one. But that’s sort of annoying lol.

    Hhhhmmmmmmmm. This may not work how I want it to...

    New Case Time!

    I really want the 420 to work, but boy o boy, I have no idea if it will. Also the front 60mm.... that may not be possible either lol. I am handy with a dremel but I would rather not do that.

    New Case Time!

    Thanks man. Ordered an S2, a Alphacool XT45 for the top, 3 NF-A14 fans, EKD5/res combo, and the 2080 water block for the 2080 I just picked up for a steal.... So, the plan, assuming it all fits, my current UT60 up front, XT45 up top, and that should be beyond phenomenal cooling. I will also be swapping my 8700k @5ghz into this PC, long story short but I haven't cared enough to do that. I have a 8700k with a 1070 at my parents house (spend some weekends with them, so build a machine to game there), but I will be moving farther away and won't need that... so the 8700k and 2080 will pair pretty damn well together! Thanks for the advice, that should work out perfectly!!!

    New Case Time!

    Hey guys, I am finally looking to get a new case. I have had my 350d for a while and its been great, but I am about to change up the rig and want to change up the radiator situation. Just trying to get good ideas and inspiration for a case that is water cooling friendly, I love a dead silent PC, and water is the way to get there. I am thinking of doing a triple top rad and retaining my UT60 280 rad in the front of the case. The UT60 is a thick boi, so I am not 100% sure this will work out, but I would like this to be the outcome. I would change the entire system up with a new water block and pump, instead of the combo unit I have now... Also, full ATX required. Thanks for the idea!!!!

    CPU over heating

    Glad you got it figured out!

    CPU over heating

    I don't understand how its moving around so much... something seems to be wrong. But, at least its cooler i suppose. Seems weird, it shouldn't fluctuate that much.

    CPU over heating

    Since your just worried about CPU temps, no reason to run heaven. 5-10 mins should be plenty.... What temps is it showing right now after a few minutes?

    CPU over heating

    Go to Tools, and use system stability test. And then just press start, defaults are fine.

    CPU over heating

    Thats still a pretty hot CPU for being stock, but... that is likely "ok". Depending on which version of Prime95, it could be slamming it with to much load, I would maybe try and download AIDA64 and run that stress test instead as it has shown to be more "normal".

    Help with overclocking

    Yea, this is correct. I would google the motherboard you have (or at least the manufacturer as usually each manufacturer has different settings that are known to be "correct overclocking LLC settings" to see what yours should be. Basically, to explain what is happening, when you hit the CPU with a load you get what is called vdroop, the voltage drops due to the load being applied. LLC helps combat that, when it senses a large load, it applies more volts to try and compensate.
