    Is Computrace useful?

    Recently I purchased a new Lenovo Thinkpad P1 and noticed it supported Computrace. Computrace from my research is a bios level theft recovery tool that can remotely track and lock down the device. The bios has the option to disable, and permanently disable this feature. But my question is, is Computrace something an end user average customer can use to get their device back? Or is it restricted to large commerical applications and I should just disable it for security. Is this service free? Or is it a monthly service that one would need to subscribe to use? If it is something I can use, how would one use it to retireve a stolen device? I understand some might see this as a huge security risk and it could be a backdoor, but I personally bring my laptop enough places and travel frequently enough that the recovery options would mean more to me.
  2. I am looking to move my current system into a smaller case and apply water cooling. Since this if my first time with custom water cooling I'd like to make sure i'm not doing anything obviously wrong. My current system Graphite Serie 780T White Full-Tower Intel Core i7-7820X Delidded Asus Rog Strix x299-e gaming Asus Rog Strix 1080 ti x2 SLI Evga 1000w G3 Gold 16gb Memory 4x4gb Noctua DH-15s A total fan count of 2 x NF-A12x25 PWM 5 x NF-A14 PWM Planned System Changes & purchases (prices at time of writing) Fractal Design Define R6 USB-C White TG $187.42 LINKUP 30 cm shielded PCIe Riser $39.96 2 x Eathtek 120mm Lon flexible SLI Bridge $8.75ea EKWB EK-KIT X360 Complete triple 120mm Liquid Cooling Kit $419 EK-KIT includes EK-Supremacy Evo EK-CoolStream XE 360 EK-Vardar F4120ER EK-DDC 3.2 PWM Elite EK-CryoFuel EK-RES X3 150 various tubing and fittings. Budget for upgrade around $700 but flexible. This will be my first liquid cooling loop. I decided to forgo Aios as none would have been good enough to out match my Noctua NH-D15s (with two fans). The goal is to achieve quiet overclocking performance on the delidded 7820x and I realize a 60mm thick 360mm radiator may seem like overkill, but I want to eventually expand the loop to include both 1080 tis and/or a slim 420mm radiator mounted to the top. I realize that the DDC pump is not going to be as quiet as a D5 but I figure this is something I can change latter if it is bothering me and the kit is cheap enough that buying everything separate isn't an option. I currently plan my setup in the follow picture and foresee a couple problems. (RGB not shown) The goal in mounting the Graphics Cards is to have one vertical and the other horizontal to give each one it's own temperature zone and room to breath while still achieving HB SLI by tricking the card into thinking two flex SLI connectors are actually HB bridges from covering the center grounding pin detailed here, see comments. This still poses other mounting questions. Will the power connectors interfere with each other? Will the graphics card's air coolers overlap? The second question is a matter of airflow. Normally in a case your intake would be low and your exhaust high because warm air rises; however, I'm not sure that approach would be ideal here as all the intake air from the front would not only be warmed up by the radiator right away, but then be obstructed by the reservoir before finally feeding the 1080 tis. Perhaps it would be better to reverse the direction by using the top and rear 140mm fans as intakes and exhaust on the radiator. I'd be interested in knowing what people suggest for best radiator, vrm, and gpu airflow. Also somewhere I have to mount a 3.5in hard drive after removing all those bays, but that's not a big issue and i'm sure I can rig something out.

    Maxed out NH D15

    So looks like the general consensus is its not worth it or custom so we are going to hold off and stick with what we got until next full system upgrade and go custom then

    Maxed out NH D15

    I'm overclocking my I7-5820k and have reached a temperature limit on a Nocta NH-D15 at 80 C im looking for an AiO liquid solution my case can support upto two 360mm radiators (currently at 304 watts TDP but is expected to increase) i also want it to be quiet within reason. So my question basically comes down to which cooler? what offers the best performance for more overclocking headroom?And is the most reliable. Dont want to get some 240mm that performs worse than what i have currently.

    Is 1070 16x16 SLI worth it?

    Probably not worth it then, that ssd is fast enough for me already.

    Is 1070 16x16 SLI worth it?

    Right now I am running two Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Graphics cards in SLI with a high bandwidth bridge on the X99 platform with an I7-5820k which means it is currently running in 16x8. Recently the price of x99 processors has decreased dramatically meaning you can find an I7-6850k for less than $350 with 40 pcie lanes. So the question comes down to is it worth upgrading to a I7-6850k from an I7-5820k or should i just wait a few more years until i intend to upgrade the whole system (probably around Tiger Lake). I also have a problem right now where i have an Nvme ssd running at x2 lanes (which i suspect from benchmarks http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/5730787 but might be something else) which would certainly benefit from more lanes. But is a $350 expense really worth it? or am i better off just living with less lanes until next upgrade? I could probably sell the 5820k to make up for some of that too.
