  1. For testing purposes you can just use distilled water....

    Liquid Choice Driving me nuts

    That would be an awesome idea. I bet it wouldnt be cost effective. I know they sell colored soft tubing, but that is essentially rubber, not petg/acrylic/glass.

    Liquid Choice Driving me nuts

    Give the EK Cryofuel Solids a look. Im running the neon green one and i love it. I normally use their clear fluids, but i decided to give these solids a chance.

    X570+3600 ram problem

    Yes, at the bare minimum. Go with 2 matching sticks.

    X570+3600 ram problem

    AMD has always been particular with memory and memory speed, just a higher standard than intel i guess... lol. Either way, even if they did work, running at 2133 or 2400 isnt ideal, especially now that you went with the 3rd gen chip.

    X570+3600 ram problem

    In order to not run into those issues, you need to run a matching set of sticks, preferably 3200/3600 speed. Make sure to enable the xmp profile when you install them, so the ram runs at the proper speed. If not it will default to 2133.

    x570 Chipset Waterblock

    Don't forget that it has Wifi 6 as well 802.11ax! Ill try and take a picture of how much room you would have with a graphics card installed. Granted i have a water block on my card, so it is significantly thinner than if it had the stock cooler on there. With a water block you may have the proper clearance to put that heatkiller on the SB

    air cooling to water cooling?/

    Well unless you do one of the AIO cooling mods, you aren't going to find a water block for a 2060....
  10. Both of the above options are good for what you need and the price. If you wanted to bump up, the 2060 Super would be a good bet too since it got the upgrade in vram vs the original 2060.

    Liquid Cooler for Threadripper

    Custom is the only way to go This is my work on my buddies 2950x.

    air cooling to water cooling?/

    That is because people dont watercool 2060s.... Like another poster stated above, you'd be better off buying a better card with the money you would have spent on cooling the 2060.

    x570 Chipset Waterblock

    So, in planning for my current build, i went with the Gigabyte Aorus Master for the simple fact that it is one of the only boards that has individual m.2 slots with individual covers / coolers. All other boards used the covers that were one giant piece that also covered the chipset and that fan. That one detail was the deciding factor for my motherboard choice. This is a picture of the board as i was about to test it, prior to water cooling. I had to move the m.2 to the 1st slot, and the 3rd slot in order for both drives to be recognized.
  14. It will fit with no issues. The tubing wont affect the top fan at all, if installed like this.... It is a 240, so the tubing will be headed towards the front of the case, not the top.

    Ryzen and xmp

    If your ram is 3200 speed, run it at 3200 speed. The other setting is there to try if for some reason the 3200 doesn't work. If neither one work, the system will revert back to the 2133.
