  1. You may need to use an angle piece adapter that has only female threads + two regular male compression fittings: Example 1 x this: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-angled-90-2f-g1-4-nickel + 2x this: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-acf-fitting-10-16mm-nickel for 90 turn.
  2. Methanol water mixture is best for low temperature cooling applications. It's the worst for your health though...
  3. My Corsair AX860i for example seems to have the over current protection set to 110% of the rate power. So it can actually deliver over 900 W.
  4. Need to buy just for those Timespy scores... Not much other use.
  5. Yeah as you said, it's too low Vcore for the GPU clock. In MSI Afterburner the voltage adjustment is locked? You could also try with VRMTool to see, if the voltage can be adjusted at all... Not sure about the voltage controller on the card though.
  6. Not really sure, however some board manuals recommend to fill the slots starting from x1s. If the board happens to be configured such that it expects x1 slots to be filled first, it might cause some issues... I think its worth to try at least.
  7. For better results, you would probably need to build a two stage cooling system. Cold stage would be a subambient cpu/gpu cooling loop, that would be cooled by a lot of peltier elements. The ambient stage would be a cooling loop with normal radiators, that would cool the peltiers hot side. The first loop would need to have a lot of peltier elements, so that they can operate semi efficiently at high delta T and remove a lot of heat + the surface area needed. How to construct the "peltier element heat exchanger" between the loops practically and efficiently would be one of the trickiest parts.
  8. Try moving the sticks to slots A1 and B1. Can you change the ram speed to 2133 MHz, or change the XMP profile?
  9. TDP is far from being based just on raytracing workload.
  10. 8 bits per pixel... Just use black and white and problem solved /jk. http://www.vesa.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/VESA_DSC-ETP200.pdf
  11. Well, 3D models are made out of triangles (the surfaces are divided into triangles), verticies are the corner points of the triangles. That number probably refers to how many triangles a second the gpu can process. By processing I mean to do the matrix operations to move, rotate and scale the triangles, when you for example rotate a 3D model on your screen. Large models can contain millions of triangles... Divide the triangles per second value by the number of triangles your model has, and you get a ball park figure of how many frames a second the gpu could draw that model, based just on the geometry processing required.
  12. Afaik, the TIG coolers are designed operate at much higher coolant pressure & temperature (& noise) than PC water cooling loops. The objective of TIG cooler is not that much to keep the torch very cool, but rather to keep it from melting. The coolant temps may creep close to 100 C on prolonged and high amperage welding... At high coolant to ambient deltas it's easy to remove a lot of heat, so that's probably where those high wattage ratings come from. It doesn't mean it would work very well or be practical for PC water cooling...
  13. Then I would just ditch chillers, since they have low efficiency. Instead use one, or couple of these instead: https://www.aquatuning.fi/vesijaeaehdytys/jaeaehdyttimet/radiators-active/2050/xtreme-nova-1080-radiator-full-copper Cheaper and powerful, if space isn't your concern.
  14. I hope it will be good, finally an upgrade from Sandy Bridge? Daily OC clock speed improvements have been pretty minor since 32 nm SB, though performance has slowly improved. I think the difference between Sandy Bridge and Coffee Lake is something like "up to" 30%... Though maintream Coffee Lake still doesn't have even half of the number of pcie lines of SB-E. The new AMD offering could be attractive if the performance is there.
