  1. Define r6 Modding?

    Shoot an email on over to mod-proshop@performance-pcs.com and CC me in it with matt@performance-pcs.com, I'm sure we can help you figure something out!
  2. Pump size matter?

    If you're already planning on ponying up for a loop i highly recommend you do not cheap out on the pump. The pump is the equivalent to the PSU in your PC build. Save up some more money for a D5 or DDC, best recommendation.
  3. custom water cooling companies

    They also have lifetime warranties on all their products from manufacturing defects
  4. Which radiator to buy?

    Personally I always prefer HW Labs for their silence optimized radiators. You get a ton of performance even while running low speed fans.
  5. Which radiator to buy?

    Thanks for the mention Skiiwee29! As for extensive research... this is my main source of info for choosing a radiator... http://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/
  6. custom water cooling companies

    Can't forget Thermaltake, Watercool, Phanteks, Phobya (if TouchAqua makes it on the list that is), and Magicool.
  7. TT Pacific RGB Fittings

    Thermaltake claims those fittings are made of copper...why they wouldn't be brass, I have no idea lol... However from your pictures of the fittings with corrosion it almost appears to be aluminum, although I could be mistaken. I'd be interested in seeing one of those fittings with the paint removed to see what they are really made of. Otherwise my only other thought would be, are you using a silver kill coil in that loop? If so, that could be where the mineral build is coming from.
  8. Stealth80 has already given a great run down of what you'll need, but I'd also like to mention that PPCs offers a wide variety of custom watercooling kits that makes your first custom loop quite a bit easier to plan out. You can find them here. Also feel free to hmu if you need any further assistance with parting out your loop, I'm always happy to help!
  9. I'm always here to help with anyone looking into PPCs! Feel free to ask me any questions you may have
  10. Strix 1080 ti

  11. Strix 1080 ti

    Phanteks has confirmed with me that their 1080ti Strix block works with all the PCB designs Asus has used
  12. How do you clean your loop?

    Vinegar is only safe with copper/brass. So if you have any nickel in your loop you'll want to either just use distilled water, or I'd highly recommend a cleaning solution like Mayhems Blitz Part 2.
  13. First time custom loop! Help pls <3

    I would highly recommend Hardware Labs radiators over EK's, especially if you are going with slim rads.
  14. I want to get liquid cooling

    If the guy wants to watercool his PC...let him watercool it. This isnt your build, this isnt your money, it's his. If all you have to say is "your hardware isnt good enough for watercooling", then you should just keep scrolling past this thread. With that being said @TooMuchMoneyz, were you wanting to go the AIO, or custom loop route?
  15. cheap cpu block

    This is the cheapest block I can recommend from personal experience.
