  1. An interesting project, but thanks god I managed to tell them that it was stupid what they wanted...

Anyone has any comments on it? Sure happy to hear improvements, but else this would be the idea to go for HDD in Raid 5, SSD in RAID 1
  2. Anyone can tell me if primochill is fine? never got something from them before but after the broken reservoir from aquacomputer I would like to have some references before placing my order
  3. Yea, in on the left side and out at right side, unlucky design, I see what you mean
  4. true, seems like this isn't possible with this reservoir? which would be horrible
  5. 4.8GHz before delidding with air at 1.36V. The team of pc schmiede who delidded the cpu said they expect improvment and I do too since the only limit right now was thermal throttling.
  6. Hey Guys. This time I want to do an upgrade for my own PC. The setup 6700K Asus Hero Alpha Mobo Phanteks Enthoo Luxe (no TG!) I want to cool my 6700K down, after delidding I know I can do the 5GHZ with it, but I will need watercooling for it and the aios won't fit my needs.

  7. CPU to accompany my GTX 1070

    https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/G2ZRf8 in case you want to spend all of the money, should be fine for quite some time, invest the left amount into thermal grease and be happy! other option would be https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/VN9JFd
  8. he has the 550w version which wouldn't be enough at power spikes
  9. https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/h93hnn but can't 100% say if radiator fits case since I can't find that case right now somehow
  10. you could split cores to do certain work and e.g. run 4 cores for games like an old i5 and the other 4 to 8 cores depending on cpu could do rendering. so you need a stronger psu. with a budget like that I would go ryzen 7 + 1080ti, that should be possible. tr4 would only be useful with 1920X and that is still to expensive
  11. will be tough, if you want best 1080 ti the evga ftw3 or an asus strix may be the way to go. together with 32gb of ram at speed you are at 1250€ already. You can't even fit more than a ryzen 1700 in that then, with stock cooler and cheap MoBo. 550W may be enough, the question is which psu exactly, you shouldn't run a 1080ti on any cheap psu. The case may work but you would need to remove drive cages.
  12. I absolutly know that and discussed it with them, but they want a custom cooling solution with a mo-ra3 pro with 18 fans... well, when they pay for it and think they know it better they get that. maybe next pc they will go air again. I am not happy with it either, believe me. I mean a cool running tr4 running 24/7 is a great thing sure but I think there are better cooling concepts, as well with water cooling. But I can't change the customer and he pays me... so, let's face it, great parts used badly. Still I have to built it somehow with quick cuppling concept between desktop and mo-ra3.
  13. i dont know which one to choose

    I would go H270. if cheap go for msi pc mate/mortar arctic Asus - PRIME H270-PRO if you want a bit more features
  14. Hey guys and if so girls! Thanks already, I talked with my customer and can say a bit more now. Here is another pc with the following specs I built him and he says he wants more threads and slightly more gpu power for the new machine Ryzen 1700x Gigabyte Aorus x370 Dark Rock Pro 3 Samsung 960EVO256gb G. Skill Ripjaws 3200 CL 14 4x8gb GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Palit KalmX Yea, I just told you what I got told to, performance over look. I aim for making it look good anyway in a black and white build but without rgb. Coolant white and white led strips were my idea. Because there are basicly no 8x4gb kits and I thought of going 8 sticks for looks. Here my "customer" told me the workload are multiple TS Servers, Minecraft and VMs. Maximum gaming load he wants Minecraft runnning at 5760x1080.(which his 1050 ti seems to handle already pretty nice, he used a 750ti for a long time) I think quad channel is a must, but I will look into 4x8gb kits. 3200MHz with 4 or even 8 sticks is stable at TR4? I think you must think different here, if they need more power they buy more pcs. It is strange but I helped them now for probably a year and they keep doing that instead of upgrading, seems to be something with taxes why they do that. Yea, would have done the same, but they want watercooling and there a custom loop for some reason. Talked with them a lot yesterday, They even think about a MO-RA3 Pro 420 now and want an external cooling solution and coupling system to take the mo-ra3 seperatly and clean it. I sure know and told them and they are happy with the air cooled builds I made for them, but this time they ask for watercooling. will look into it, but since they now want external cooling I may start over completly. Yea, will look into RAM. As said before, VMs and different Servers with basicly little gpu power needed, a 24 thread cpu seems to be perfect for such workload. The 1950X seems to be out of budget range. Since they want an external cooling solution with the MO-RA3 Pro 420 I have to start over again anyway. Advice is appreciated, thanks already for the advice I already got from you.
  15. Hello. I got myself requested to build another pc. This time a BIG thing going to be build around late january/early feb. The Budget ~3000€, buying in germany. We are talking about tower only. It shall be watercooled and oced if oc parts are included. It is build by me, no pre-built. The Aim is prof. work. , atleast 12 threads are required, also 32gb of ram. (Thinking of TR4?) Peripherals are NOT needed. It is no upgrade but an additional PC for the increased workload and watercooled.... well, because they ask for it? As for the case we would like to include the Primo SE black/white in the build but other ideas are also welcome. I got told they have "dust issues" and there should be as much dust filters as possible and easy as possible cleaning. I would go with ZMT. Performance is more important than looks. I am also just starting with it and getting first ideas but I often got great ideas here and hope you will help me once again with great ideas.
