    Good custom loop case

    I am getting ready to toss together a system in July. I have been on the fence about my next case for over a year now (originally was going to do a 9900k build) I will be cooling both GPU and CPU and I am planning on using dual 420mm rads. The view71 rgb tg is one of the cases I like for the build, but I am sure there are better cases out there for the job. Just wanted to see what everyone else recommends.

    Awesome. Ya I picked the 420s because they have more surface area than a 480 while taking up less fan bays. I have heard the 140s that come with the rgb version do have good static pressure, but I'll probably swap then for ml140s (still unsure on this one). Then again maybe I will just order 3 or 4 more and use it on the other rad too.
  3. This isn't necessarily true. Let's say ryzen got a 13% IPC bump (low end) Intel has about a 3-5% ipc lead. So if ryzen is now 10% over the Intel offerings that 4600mhz clock is equivalent to a 5060mhz Intel. That is why Intel trashed bulldozer 5ghz cpus with their lower clocks. It is pure IPC goodness. Now we have to look at the fact these are 4.6ghz boosts and they have XFR2.. which can add another 200mhz. So I wouldn't be shocked to see a good portion hitting 4.8ghz on all cores. Then you have the fact these chiplets can be binned much more easily allowing for more consistency in chips. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some 5ghz capable ones.

    Very true. I know that the v71 can take thick rads on the front and side mount for sure.. just don't know about at the same time. Also not sure about the top. Time for more research lol.

    Good custom loop case

    I figure I will either use the 60mm thick rads from alphacool or the 57mm ones from the GTR blackice line. Another thing to consider is my current machine has 7 drives in it. 6 data one m.2. I figure I will run 2 -1tb m.2s, but will probably need a way to mount 1-2 hdds. I know on the 71 they can mount to the back still even if you remove the front drive bays (which I probably will do)

    Moving a custom water-cooled PC

    I think it will be fine as long as nothing was lose before the move. Soft tubing is much more durable than a hard tube loop.
  7. In that case the processors you are considering are also 105 watt chips. My guess is they would be much more efficient than your old q6600 so it will keep your bill pretty much constant.
  8. The q6600 said it was 105 watts, but if you overclocked it at all it was probably a good but higher than that. Either way you might spend an extra 60-100 a year worth case if you are pushing a 3700x or 3900x hard and running it at 100% al the time.

    (16core added)AMD 3000 specs! 4.7 GHZ, R9 3950x, R7 3700x, 3800x.

    The leaks weren't terribly far off either. The information I have gotten also points to the 16c/32t chip launching in another 1/4 or so. Apparently, they haven't got enough binned chips for it. Some of that is due to the epyc line, some because they don't really need to launch it right now. I think they are keeping it as an ace in the hole for when Intel launches their 10c chips. As for the 12core chip... I am really curious to see how it overclocks, but I would expect those 4.6ghz chips to hit 4.75 or 4.8ghz with XFR 2.0. My only real requirement for this series was to hitting 4.7ghz or higher and I am pretty confident that will be happening. I have a feeling micro-center will see a 2500+ dollar build from me in July. Now I need to decide whether to keep my evga reference card with block or if I should sell it and pickup a ftw3 with block.

    First custom loop h500

    Just wanted to put this out there. If you are already looking to move to a custom loop build you might as well get a much nicer case for it. Something similar to the view71. Then you can run several big rads if you want. If your goal is to cool both the GPU and CPU I would aim for dual 280mms or better. Fyi a 280mm rad has almost as much surface area as a 360mm. 140x280 = 39,200 120x360 = 43,200 So only about 10% more, but a 280mm is often times much easier to fit in a case.
  11. Most people don't use it for heat spreader to block. It is mostly for people who want to delid and use it on the die to heat spreader. Fyi heatspreaders are nickle.

    Is it better

    You could also wait a few days and find out when the ryzen 3000 launches. Might be able to get more cores and clocks for the same price in a month or less.
  13. I am aiming for the 16c/32 thread beast. My only condition is it needs to be able to run all cores at 4.7ghz or higher. It will be on custom water so if boost blocks are there then I am sure it will be possible. Now if it can't but the 12c/24t does then I will probably go that route. Either way I am excited to finally get this build underway... I've has a 2080ti sitting around since launch. First it was waiting for a waterblock, then it was waiting in me to do a 9900k build which was shelved in order to wait for Ryzen 3000. I'll get to finally upgrade my gaming rig, and my wife will get a 8700k + dual 1080ti build (will probably scavenge one card for the teenagers machine)

    I would only go with 1 fan on the top as close as possible to the back. If you have 2 fans on top for example the one closer to the front will be sucking out that fresh air before it hits your cooler which would possibly increase your CPU temps.
  15. AngryBeaver


    Remeber that naturally hot air tends to rise. I would run front care fans as intake. Then the rear fan ofcourse would be exhaust... you can also add another exhaust fan to the top rear... but adding another in front for intake wouldn't be a good move.
  16. AngryBeaver


    I just want to point out that filling every fan slot isn't normally the best approach. Running 3 good fans in front and 1 in back in generally your best option. Adding one more top fan closest to the rear can sometimes improve temps a tad, but anything past 3F 1R really starts to hit diminishing returns and can even hurt temps due to how they can effect your air flow. Wind tunnel effect is still the most efficient. Now if you are going custom water that changes a little bit, but for air cooling more isn't always better.

    Pc Running Slow vs Fast

    This would be more what I would aim for. If you plan to do lots of streaming and don't want to use the geforce codec then you might upgrade to a 2700 for another 50 bucks or so. I used the 2600 over the 2600x and upgraded the CPU cooler expecting you would be able to do a simple 4.2ghz overclock on the cpu. If you need monitor and mouse/keyboard then expect to add another 150-250 to the total cost.

    Got hacked - need advice.

    Reimage the machine from a fresh format. Then make sure you change all your passwords. Btw having that port open or even using VNC isn't the problem. The problem is the apparent ease at which he got your password. So either it was a common and very susceptible to dictionary attacks or was simple enough he brute-forced it. Now I don't know how your network is setup, but is most likely your router/gateway device. Port 8090 is a alternate port for 80 and 8080, so it being used to access the web console for your router makes since. I would also factory reset your router and add a new complex admin password for it. As to running this guy down you won't have much luck. He will be using a VPN and probably ToR as well. That doesn't mean you cant trace him back to his home connection, just that as an average user you won't get the help needed from the VPN hosting company and then the ISP. Being there is little monetary lose here the police/FBI won't do anything about it either. So in the end your best course is remediation and prevention. Reimage, factory reset, change passwords, and learn from the experience.
  19. https://help.elgato.com/customer/portal/articles/1020250-how-do-i-use-open-broadcaster-software-to-stream-with-elgato-game-capture-hd- Also these cards encode to h264 on the fly which is why they can port straight to YouTube or whatever with minimal CPU usage.
  20. I think most of these people are missing you have a capture card. That takes a lot of the requirements off the cpu. Now that being said the 2600 upgrade is a good start, but you will also want a GPU capable of 60fps at 1080p. I think right now the 570 8gb and 580 8gb are your best options. The 580 is like 150 at microcenter atm and can be found online for around 170. The 570 can be found for around 100 at microcenter and around 120 online.

    AIO vs lots of fans+aircooler

    Maybe if you are mixing metals.

    AIO vs lots of fans+aircooler

    I can get a good 240mm AIO for 100-150 all day. So unless you mean cheap Chinese knockoff products it isn't possible to build a decent custom loop for that. D5 pump/res combo- 150 - 180 CPU block - 100-120 GPU block - 150-180 Rad - 60 -120 (size, quality) 240mm + Tubing 20 - 30 Fittings 50 - 100 Fans 10-25 PER So if we just want a pump/res, CPU block, cheap res, tubing, and fittings... Then 350-400 is what you should expect to be paying. Which is why I think custom loops on just a CPU are a waste. Toss on another 250 or so and cool the whole system. I always tell people to expect to spend 600-700 on a custom loop.

    AIO vs lots of fans+aircooler

    So I have a story on this. My teenager just had a bday and he wanted a new RGB case with mouse/keyboard also RGB. I let him pick out a case, but the problem was it only supported the 240mm h220x he was using in the front. He also went from a full to mid tower. It all installed but wasn't happy with the fans on the front and also with the tubing length. I had a DH-14 sitting around so I tossed it in. I did try a 30 min stress test on both. The DH-14 was only about 2-3c warmer than the 240mm swiftech setup. Now this could have been because the swiftech was air starved. Anyways the noctua cooler is quieter than the pump on the h220x was (bubbles kept getting sucked in to pump from the front mount orientation) Anyways my point is that an AIO can have a slight temp lead, but the real gains are on the custom loop side.

    What type of connection are you using?

    Is modular AiO Liquid Cooling dead?

    It is still possible if you are willing to do some of the work. My recommendation would be to pick up a h360x v3 from swiftech. Cut the hoseil in 2 and apply QDCs. Now if you add another rad or GPU block add some tubing and put on QDCs. You will need to do a proper fill on the initial loop, but if you add a rad or GPU block later just make sure you have an extra QDC and tube so you can prefill the components. Then you can just add them in without much trouble. This approach isn't easier than buying them already that way, but it is using an expandable AIO to cut the major costs of a custom loop while also adding the convenience of QDC.
