  1. My initial thought is, who is going to buy a single 16GB RAM stick. I know people like me, but I need to find a buyer that has an exact matching one.
  2. I've tried with both FFR on and off but it showed little to no difference. For sure CPU would be appropriate to upgrade but I have multiple friends with the same or older CPU and they have better performance with higher graphic settings. Where I live 2x8 is the same price as 1x16
  3. Hi LTT forum, First of all I'm not sure if I've posted this in the entire correct location. I've posted it here as I've only encountered this problem in BF V. I'm having issues with very low FPS in Battlefield V. A quick breakdown of my system (will make it more detailed when I get home) is that I have 980Ti GPU 7600k CPU (not oc'ed atm) Single stick of 16 GB ram Temperatures on the CPU while gaming seems alright, they are in the 60 range. GPU is around 80 and fans are not ramping up to 100%, more like 60% so it has more to give in terms of cooling. I remember a video being posted about the effects single channel memory had on gaming and I remember some games had a significant performance hit from running that. So that made me think it could be my issue, so I'm here for confirmation of that before I spend 125$ on another stick of 16gb. My graphic settings in BF V is that everything is set to low and all the bells and whistles have been turned off in order to maximise my FPS. With all of that I'm sitting in 50-60 FPS average. Sometimes I can reach 90 but also 30 FPS in certain areas. Hope someone can help.
  4. That makes sense it's not compatible then. Now I just have to figure out if I can sacrifice some space for the controller in my already snug case.
  5. I don't mind waiting at all. I suppose it's this product you're talking about. From what I can see it doesn't mention anything about support for Asus Aura. So my question is, will the new RGB-W series support Asus Aura? Thanks for the quick response.
  6. I do have a question. I was looking to buy your RGB LED strips but was told by one of your employees that it was out of life and therefore won't get in stock again. What would you recommend as an alternative? I could go for the magnetic and mount it with adhesive tape myself but I much prefer a factory solution, which is often more elegant.
  7. Legolas, a water cooled and wall mounted Mini-ITX build Picture coming up Introduction: It's been almost a year since I sold my desktop as I was going on a exchange in the states. Now that I'm back my Macbook Pro is not sufficient for my study needs nor my gaming needs. For many years I've wanted to make a water cooled system but it was always hard to justify the price and the case I was using at the time. Now with the PC-O5S I think there's no alternative to water cooling, even if the performance gains are negligible. To make it easier to justify the price of water cooling to myself, I've tried to get some of the components second hand. Now I haven't done that with every component, I want the case to be in perfect condition so that is ordered brand new. However, there is quite a lot to save looking at second hand storage, video cards and monitors, which is exactly what I did. My second hand items though, look like they just came out of their original packaging. You may wonder why I've a Noctua CPU cooler. I choose to get this as I'm not completely sure about what water cooling I'm going to get. So to be able to use my new computer while doing research I opted for this Noctua cooler, which later will be transferred to my beloved NAS. Every since I made my NAS in the Lian-Li PC-Q25B I've pretty much been obsessed with their cases, the brushed aluminium and the tempered glass. It's a pain to work with, to keep it perfect, but when you're done it's so rewarding. The name Legolas is of course from Lord of the Rings but it fits my intentions for this Mini-ITX build pretty good as well. I want to build a good looking build that is still capable of handling pretty much whatever you throws at it. From the very beginning I'm completely aware of potential bottlenecks in terms of temperaturs as the case will only fit a fairly slim radiator in the top. However, with power requirements of computer components constantly decreasing, I'm sure if it can handle my components now, today, I'm pretty confident it will be able to handle the components of tomorrow. Also, I forgot to mention the best part. The case is wall mountable, which I'm obviously going to utilise. Parts list: CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K (ordered) CPU cooler: Noctua NH-L9x65 (ordered) Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix Z270I Gaming (ordered) RAM: Cosair Vengeance LPX 1x16GB DDR4 2400MHz Black (ordered) Storage: Samsung 950 PRO NVMe M.2 512GB SSD (ordered) Video card: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC GAMING (ordered) (arrived) Case: Lian-Li PC-O5SX (ordered) (arrived) Power supply: SilverStone SFX Series SX600-G (ordered) Monitor: ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q (ordered) (arrived) Other: GentleTyphoon D1225C12B5AP-15 (1,850 rpm) x 2 (ordered) (arrived) Other: Lian-Li O5-1X (ordered) Peripherals: Mouse: SteelSeries Sensei Raw Rubberised Mousepad: SteelSeries QcK Gaming Mousepad Keyboard: Ducky Mini Year of the Horse Headphones: Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX Headphones stand: Just Mobile HeadStand Black Microphone: Blue Microphones Yeti Future purchases: PSU cables: Short cable to keep it nice and clean. Premade: CableMod. Yet to decide on the colour scheme. Custom Sleeving: MDPC-X Sleeving tools: Pin-remover Water cooling: This case is screaming for water cooling. AIO rad/res/pump unit + custom Full custom loop RGB lightning strip Fan splitter: Not complete sure what solution to go for yet. I will have a maximum of 3 fans in the case. I'm sure when building the system I will gain experience about what solution would be preferable. Pictures: All upcoming pictures will be added to this album. Updates: I will keep this post updated so you don't have to look around for it. I can't wait to get started but for now I have to wait until all the parts have arrived. Feedback and suggestions is more than welcome, especially in terms of the water cooling as it is where I'm more unsure and I lack some experience. Cheers Shaqalac.
  8. New and exciting build coming up.

      Looking forward to it!

  9. How would something like this work: https://www.coolerkit.dk/shop/3-pin-kabel-2032p.html Fine I imagine but could I run into problems when the fans are running on top of a radiator (no speed control)? My case only has a CPU and Chassis fan header (2 in total) so when having a total of 4 fans (3 case and 1 cpu fan) I'd need a splitter. If I connect all 3 case fans to a splitter and control them via SpeedFan, they will all run at the same speed all of the time right?
  10. Hi LTT, I have some Gentle Typhoon 1850 lying around and I wan't to use them in my case. However, I really need to undervolt them, as I don't want them to run at full speed. What is the easiet way to do so? Cheers
  11. Hi LTT, I'm about to make a new build with a Lian Li case. Naturally I want to keep the case clean of finger prints. To this a need a pair of gloves that will protect the case and not leave and finger prints. What gloves have @Slick been using when assembling builds in Lian Li or other cases having brushed aluminium and tempered glass? Hope anyone can help. Kind regards, Shaqalac
  12. I've also been convinced elsewhere that I shouldn't get the Asgard 2. I've watched Z Reviews's review of the Vali 2 and from him it sounds like the Vali 2 doesn't sound that much different from SS amps. Don't know if the guy's opinion is worth a thing though.
  13. It it tempting and looks really good. It is however beyond my price range at the moment. Would the DAC be necessary at all? If not how would I connect the Vali 2 to my MBP in the best way? If I were to buy a Vali 2 it would be my first tube AMP. From the replies in this thread is sounds like tube is preferred for the HD6XX, is the difference really that big compared to an SS AMP, like the Magni 2 or the Asgard 2 (which I'm also considering)
  14. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Sennheiser HD 6XX 300Ω. Can't wait for them to arrive!
