  1. This thread is a year old... also, it wasn't my phone, so not my fault there was no SD card.

    ASUS Awkwardly releases their first AIOs

    They aren't. The 240mm Ryuo (which is the lower tier of the 2 models) is £160 on OCUK, not including shipping. I've had a lot of experience with OCUK and usuallly they are around £10 to preorder, £20 at most. That means you can expect £140 for a 240mm cooler, which is first gen and may have oversights that may not deduct from quality but usage, that's to be expected when two companies who have never made AIOs make an AIO. For less than £120, you can get the Corsair H115i PRO, which uses the latest Asetek pump design, has excellent fans and it's 6th gen coming from an excellent company. The cooler looks great and if I'm honest I think it could very well be a top-tier first cooler like EVGA released, but EVGA didn't release their first cooler with such a huge price tag (infact it was the best price-performance cooler imo). Ontop of that, EVGA's customer service (which is important for AIO buyers) is FAR better than Asus'.
  3. ASUS highlighted two sets of coolers back at Computex, which are now being more officially announced by ASUS themselves and some of the coolers are now available for preordering. The two models of coolers being released are the "Ryuo" and the "Ryujin" AIO coolers, which appear to be mostly similar with a few differences. The "Ryuo" series is the less expensive of the two, and has the following features: topped by a 1.77" OLED screen addressable, aura sync ready RGB LEDs at the base of the block copper block topped with aluminium and an aluminium radiator sleeved rubber tubing ROG Ryuo Fan model 12 fans The Ryuo series isn't available in many places yet, but as far as I can tell it will come in (at least) the following sizes: Rog Ryuo - 120mm preordering at £129.95 Rog Ryuo - 240mm preordering at £159.95 The more-expensive "Ryujin" series comes with a larger, square block sporting similar features: (Quote from Asus' site) Again, it is not for certain, but currently the only seen Ryujin coolers on Asus' website are the following: Rog Ryujin - 240mm - no price yet Rog Ryujin - 360mm - no price yet The awkward part is the "release" - ASUS have announced the coolers and posted them on their website, but many of the product pages are broken and are dead ends, such as this page showing nothing and the "Ryuo" series page only shows "Ryujin" items. Additionally, it is unclear whether the "cheaper" Ryuo series will be built using Noctua's fans, as the preorder page states nothing about using Noctua products or research, and the fans have ROG logos on them. The Ryujin cooler on the other hand states on the official website that it uses Noctua's top of the line fans. In my opinion, these coolers don't look like anything spectacular. The addition of Noctua fans might be cool but I don't think Asus has displayed anything we haven't seen in virtually every AIO on the market. I think this mostly panders to people who have an AURA setup, as this does fit in well with other ASUS products, and there certainly is a lack of Aura-sync coolers on the market, other than less-trusted brands like Deepcool and Cooler master. Asus has done a good job in finding a gap in the market, a high end- aura ready cooler. The price is pretty steep - the "Ryuo" series looks to top the market with NZXT in terms of pricing, and the "Ryujin" series is expected to be even more expensive, so these may be the most expensive AIOs we have seen yet. That said, ASUS does and always has made top of the line products, so expect quality from this cooler. The tubing looks quality, and the pump is totally metal, so I don't see any quality issues here.
  4. i'll drop £1500 on a 2080ti if it can actually run 144hz 1440p without throttling to 99%...

    affordable hard line tubing prebuilts?

    I don't think there's much of a market for that. Most people buying prebuilts buy cheap builds or standard 1080p gaming builds. Not many people buy watercooled prebuilt PCs, i'd say most people who know about watercooling know enough to do it themselves. Also, as mentioned, it's not very profitable at all. Ontop of that, you'll have to deal with warranty claims if a loop fails, and you'll end up paying for the whole PC.
  7. inb4 they use Tin from cans they found in the garbage to solder with because it saves them 0.1$ per chip

    8 core version of 8700k is coming this Fall!

    Little overreaction from everyone.. "Intel is panicking, they are going to have to work hard to get back from the hole AMD dug!" I don't think Intel is very scared.... realistically, we all know that an 8core intel CPU > 8 core AMD CPU. The 8700K can still beat the 2700X in many multi threaded loads, even if we ignore the fact that the 8700k can clock to about a whole GHZ higher than the Ryzen chips can. Intel isn't scared at all...

    how long does a MMO session take online?

    not 20 minutes then, closer to 25 he said the AVERAGE league game, over half of the player base is silver, so 30 minutes

    Could Nvidia be skipping to 7nm for the GTX 11 series?

    I'll upgrade, just praying something comes that can handle 1440p... my 1080Ti can't handle 1440p 165hz for shit (on big titles anyway), feel bad for the people playing at 4k lol

    Could Nvidia be skipping to 7nm for the GTX 11 series?

    The gap between kepler and maxwell is the same gap between maxwell and pascal... 780ti = 970 980ti = 1070

    Motherboard recommandations

    Honestly if you can spend £150 and your planning to spend a further £200+ on a 7700k, your better off selling the 6400 and using the money for a b350 board and a 1600/2600
  14. I don't know what's causing it, but my keyboard keeps doing odd things. Randomley, it stops working all together and responds to nothing. Other times, it repeats the last key pressed endlessly, sometimes it acts as if the alt key is constantly pressed down, etc. I don't know what's causing it. Sometimes it happens a ton in a short space of time, other times it doesn't happen for 3 hours. I've tried updating the drivers, reinstalling drivers, etc. The issue doesn't persist using virtual keyboard. The issue does not persist on my laptop and other PCs.. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and this is a fresh windows install.

    Intel ditching 8th gen?

    It's intel, it's pretty likely they'll either ditch z370 all together or throw out an 8700k with 100mhz higher clockspeed and 0.5% IPC improvement. Glad I ditched my 8700k for the 2700X, screw intel
