  1. Why don't you simply take the hardware out of the new SFF system and transfer into the old system's case? That looks like a basic mATX Optiplex.
  2. You the most informative person I know on the forum

  3. that's very informative of you

      I refuse to repair that rupture until I am thoroughly compensated.

      My compensation request is a black hole.

      they said you can't hear pictures but i can this one. 

  7. Well, this week has been quite the week. My 290X Lightning’s die cracked (out of nowhere, it didn’t get hit and it wasn’t in the system, I’ve been told it was thermal expansion and age), my Noctua got severely dented, my water blocks are corroding, my motherboard is dying, as is my RAM, and I’ve had to repair my camera a solid few times. This is just not my week. But here’s a few tribute photos of my beloved Lightning.

      You don’t know that.

  9. It took me way more tries than it should have, but I finally got a pic of the air system that wasn’t piss yellow.


  10. First update in a long while. Got new fans on the way, and went over to air. (new fans come today) just waiting til I can afford more paint (excuse the weird colors on the air photo, lighting was off temp).

      Ooo - nice! :) 

  11. Got new RAM, 2666 MHz CL11 2x4 Trident X. Proceeded to paint the tops gold and remove the stickers. Also painted the interior and exterior of the case, but I still have lots of stencils I need to do.

      Homemade Trident X Royal DIMMs? 

    3. Cyberspirit


      Didn't even knew CL11 was a thing, I've only ever seen CL13 kits in Hungary.


      Edit: There's actually a pack of CL10 RAM available, must be nice for Ryzen. 😍

      @Cyberspirit this stuff benches CL 9 :P 

  12. The burn in was successful. (for those of you who don’t know, I have a tradition of sorts where I burn my fingerprint into the IHS of my new CPU, I just kept putting it off for this chip). It will never come off untilI lap the IHS, no amount of alcohol and no amount of wiping 😄BEC5B3DF-9510-40E3-8A66-F704124C399F.thumb.jpeg.f09ea32394d0f0bec70034d5cebd8ebc.jpeg

      it would have probably throttled and shutdown very quickly, am i right?

      It throttled, and maintained 100c. Windows was perfectly responsive.

    She’s coming along well, considering buying some Primochill Vue Candy Gold SX after all the painting and photos are done and I fill it a final time for the next half year.

      Damn that system looks pretty sick!

  14. It seems that it’s a 50/50 split between the people who prefer the watered system and the people who prefer it on air, so now I’m curious which one you guys think looks better, the air or the water.

      I prefer the chonky air coolers. :P

    3. VegetableStu


      i like the air cooler one more, but the empty space above....

    4. TopHatProductions115


      water looks more interesting. air is just a safe move (in terms of aesthetics)
