  1. Alright, I'm Done. Wanted a second opinion. The scary part is that Google serves me this site as a sponsored listing The home address and website layout made me consider it could maybe be some sort of automated drop ship site. Though looking through a lot of the buttons don't work and it looks like all the listings are automatically generated. Thanks, guys! Clicking "Tate Place" takes you to the site.
  2. https://pointssss.com/ They have a great deal on this camera lens that I want. They have some fire deals in general. I noticed that they have a little banner that says "X Sold in last 24 hours" which seems to be fake. Though I've seen this on a lot of sites and it generally doesn't seem to matter. Can I trust it?
  3. That's exactly what I said! There is no O-Ring, just Acrylic and metal. I sent them another email asking them if they are 100% sure. I have the Monoblock for the z370-e. Still waiting for a response
  4. According to customer support, I need to replace the o-ring. They acknowledge it is a defect. Water is not supposed to flow there.
  5. Yes of course. 72 hours is what primochill advises. After that I replaced distilled water once a week too. Either way, clearly there's something wrong with the water/there was dirt somewhere. Anyway, the buildup is pretty light. Any products I should use to clear it? Also, are you sure there's waterflow in that area? Looking even closer, there is a clear acrylic barrier between areas of flow and this center area where there's build up. It looks completely sealed off.
  6. That's what they recommended I do as I have run out of sys prep. Also, yes I thoroughly shook the rads before putting them in. However, I have not used Mayhems blitz kit or anything special. I suppose what I want to know is how should I fix it? Preferably a product I can buy and run in the loop. (Don't want to take it apart).
  7. Well, I contacted ek about it. Let's see what they say. In the meantime im going to put in some dish soap. Is any kind of dish soap okay? I don't have Dawn.
  8. None just distilled water. Though I did run Primo Prep before pouring straight distilled water. I still have to buy additives. But I still don't understand why that's happening in an area with no flow. I have no blockage anywhere else. I've also been swapping the water every week
  9. I just put together a brand new water-cooling loop, with parts from EKWB. I'm running distilled water, and after a few weeks, I found this in my water block The most baffling part to me is that water does not even flow through that part of the waterblock!
  10. Alright thanks. FYI Asus mobos are capable of bios updates without a CPU installed
  11. So, I tried powering on my PC with a 9900k and a z370 Mobo, but I wasn't getting any error lights or video signal. Tech support is confused and said I should just return it. Ram and gpu works fine. Is this because I need to update the bios for the new cpu? Or would an error light show up for that problem.
  12. Thank you! That was very thorough. Guess I now have to order some fittings.
  13. Thank you, though I wouldn't come to the forums without searching every other resource first. This seems to have an o-ring, hence my confusion. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-extender-6mm-m-m-black-nickel Would that not work?
  14. So are you saying I can't attach a tube to the O ring side of that fitting, and use a male to male extender on the other female side of that fitting linked above?
  15. I'm doing hard. If you click on the link I don't see how I can use that fitting to connect a rad and tube...
  16. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-af-angled-90-g1-4-nickel Does that attach to a tube directly? if so then do I need a Male-Male adapter to connect the other side of the fitting to a pump?
  17. The title says it all. There is no monoblock for Z390 MOBOs from ek yet, and they have a sale going right now. What am I missing buying a Z370 board over a Z390 board? I plan on getting a 9th gen processor.
  18. Try this, you may have to make a few compromises, but it's much cheaper. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/kits/hard-tubing-series Their soft tubing kits are even cheaper, and Aluminium fluid gaming also has graphics card support.
  19. All you need is a saw, some silicone tubes, and sandpaper. To do perfect 90-degree bends, I find a corner of two joining walls/panels in furniture and use that. (Any other angle looks good freehand)
  20. I'm leaning towards Primochill TRUE Opaque, in an acrylic loop with everything else from EK. I suppose all fluids have their dangers and as long as you follow Manufacturer warnings that's the best I can do?
  21. I'm seeing a lot of conflicting reports/news about Mayhems Pastel Coolant and Primochills' I HAVE to have opaque fluid in my first loop, so Mayhems pastel extreme a horrible idea? Or should I use a primochill product? Vue? Why does JayzTwoCents not use Mayhems anymore but this forum seems to like Mayhems more than Primochill?
  22. Thanks for taking a look. Assuming I use Noctua Fans, is a 40mm 360 Rad enough to cool a GPU, MOBO, and CPU? (With some light overclocking). Also, what are the differences between all the GPUs I mentioned in the original post?
  23. I could go 40mm, but would my cheap fans be a bottleneck? Or do the fans not really make a difference? (The ones I specified are not Static Pressure optimized)
  24. Are you sure? Remember I'm also watercooling the 1080 and motherboard in addition to the 8700k Its the EK "Slim Edition" which is a fancy way of saying 28mm Rad
  25. I'm using a GTX 1080 from EVGA, 8700k, and Asus Strix Z370-E MOBO (Which will be watercooled with EK monoblock) I plan on using these cheap RGB fans on my rad, and a 28mm Slim Edition Rad from EK. My Question is: is 360mm enough? What temps will I see? I plan to do some LIGHT overclocking. I'd really like to stick to the Slim Edition 360 if I can get away with it. Also, which of these 1080s should I buy? There are so many options and I have a loose grasp on why they all cost different prices. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487244&cm_re=GTX_1080-_-14-487-244-_-Product
