    What is the best seal for leaking radiator?

    The cost to repair it right will cost more then the shipping on a rma for it.I would rma it and throw on a air cooler if you got one.If not buy the cheapest one that will work for you tell you get the new aio shipped to you.
  2. Really your options are very limited,Most cases no longer have any 5.25 bays,The define r6 could work if you cut down to a single 5.25 and pay a little more money.

    Is AMD really working on some 7nm gpu???

    Like anything new wait tell reviews to the see the truth.I do love amd but both side have over hyped/marketed new stuff a lot lately.Even the vega 64 is what 100 us over its mrsp should be.

    Is AMD really working on some 7nm gpu???

    Yeah 4k gaming to me would take 2 high end cards to get a playable frame rate.I'm with you on 1440p its a better gaming option to me and cheaper.
  5. If needed ek does offer alum rads in different sizes also.

    Have you priced a 4k g-sync monitor tho ?
  7. Really water cooling started mid 90s and was very diy stuff.Danger den and a few others made cpu blocks then later some gpu blocks.They used fish aquarium pumps and for rads they rigged up heater cores out of cars .Main stream water cooling to me started late 90s early 00s when they started making custom parts and the earliest aios came out.Really it started when people started overclocking cpus and the only air coolers was the oem ones which sucked back then.Today some air coolers like the Noctuas can out cool most aios.
  8. The hue+ and hue 2 is the same thing
  9. Which card did you buy?Is it a blower card or has 2 or 3 fans on it ?I would try the card undervolted and see how it runs in your case before you try water cooling it.
  10. The controller on those was crappy back in the day.I went through 3 sets of the blue lights before i got a set that lasted the longest.
  11. Your case probably has the early hue controller in it.The hue+ is their newest one that does a lot more then the first hue does.

    His hd 4870

    If they work id paid that for them.And i would replace the thermo paste and pads on the cards because of the age of them.

    Is the vega 64 strix oc edition worth it?

    If the nitro and strix are the same price and you got room for the longer nitro then i would get it.Now if the strix is cheaper i would get it over the nitro.
  14. A dual loop is only for loops it won't cool any different.
  15. Any reason for the two pumps and res ?

    Is the vega 64 strix oc edition worth it?

    I'd keep the strix mostly because the nitro is a lot longer and one heavy card.It comes with a card support for a reason lol

    Vega 64 problems

    At 1080p the load is pushed more cpu then gpu.If you ran it at 1440p the load will shift more gpu then cpu.
  18. Or do the old t line fill/res they use to use for water cooling back in the day before the res came out.

    Using an AIO radiator in a custom loop

    The rad is super thin and aluminum,The fittings most use are not a standard size,You'll spend more money using adapter fittings to get a standard size fitting and tubing.Then it would cost you to just buy a new rad the same size made for custom loops.

    I switched AMD to Nvidia

    Yeah years ago amds did have a lot better colors to them.Today i can't say because i haven't seen a nvidia card in person to tell..

    Vega 64 problems

    After i watched a few review videos they are right your card is running best it can at gta 5,I knew the game didn't like amd cards but thought it would ran better then that at 1080p https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aMAi2CrjnI
  22. I'd put the aio on the roof and make the side the intakes.

    Is the vega 64 strix oc edition worth it?

    The vega cards you can under volt them while overclocking and they run prefectly fine.The strix is a pretty good card,The red devil is about a tie with it.The nitro is a tiny bit better like 4fps faster is it lol.If you pair the card with a freesync monitor you will love it to death.

    Buying a GPU from Ebay

    I would look at the seller more then the gpu.If the sellers rate is under 98% i would skip them.Also pay with paypal or any credit card just in case they try something funny.
