  1. I plan on using 360mm for both gpu and cpu. Both are around 60C. But certain games go to 70c+.
  2. Hello everyone! I'm currently rocking some old PC parts (I5-4690k and a Powercolor Devil R9-390x). I've noticed that the temperatures for both CPU and GPU have risen slowly. They both have 120mm AIO coolers, which were good, but they seem to be lacking now. I was wondering if there are any options for an AIO for my GPU. I've researched that the NZXT Black Kraken G12 GPU mounting bracket would be a good fit. I was wondering if there are any CPU coolers on the market that would work with my R9-390x? Maybe like a 360mm AIO? I don't see myself buying a new gpu or building a custom loop, as that will cost $400+... Please let me know! Thank you, Loch.
  3. Yea, It's just too much. I decided on the ND Rf Miata Club in a manual. I just test drove one today and I fell instantly in love. I couldn't find a fault with the car!
  4. I have some friends and family members that have owned certain cars since they were new (2009 Audi S6 V10, 2008/9 E63 amg, e39 540I, and a e60 M5). They were all well maintained and I mean WELL. They were all petrol heads and still have they're cars. They also try to do repairs by themselves. It's just too much for a single part. For an example, the E63 had some electrical problem and ended costing him somewhere from $500 to $1,000+ usd just to do the repairs it himself. The S6 had a leaking or lean bank and the dealer said $6,000k. After going around to mechanics, they weren't that much cheaper. The E60 M5 had issues with the throttle actuators... oof. I know people who own them argue that they aren't money pits, but they are. I'm not saying they're bad cars, it's just I don't want to spend $1K+ on a part. Also, a lot of people complain that certain cars break down a lot right went the factory warranty expires. MONEY PITS.
  5. Audi/Merc/BMW= money pit and are near the bottom of my list. Like, I'll buy them if I end up hating the hatches or the pony cars. Those cars you listed aren't bad, just not my taste.
  6. It's really difficult to find saabs near me. I saw a newer looking saab wagon, I didn't know they made them still...?
  7. Yes, I know this. I plan on getting only 2017 ones.
  8. Yea. I don't know if I see myself driving a Saab though.
  9. I see, thanks for the response. I'm looking towards the Focus RS since they are hella cheap new from the factory (2017 Focus RS). Also, the c63/e92 m3/ any german cars are near the bottom due to the cost of repairing or replacing parts. It's really down to the RS and Mustang GT.
  10. Wagons in the US? Please name some good sporty ones. I've seen several wagons, but none looked appealing imo.
  11. Hello people of the car world! My car lease is ending soon and planning on to get my "true" car. What I mean by that is, a car that I'll keep for a alongggggggggggggggggggggggg time. I just need some opinions on certain cars. I need a daily driver, since I only go to and from work. Occasionally I'll go on back roads, but that's rear due to my lack of free time. I'm not someone with the whole "screw light weight, more power." I'd like something AWD/4WD or rwd. Also, I prefer not to get cars from earlier years (maybe after 2004 or later). I'm not much of a repair man and I really have no time. Plus my friends are willing to help me with car problems... lol... I'm looking for a comfy daily driver that looks nice and I can have some fun in. Also, manual is preferred unless the DSG's are that fantastic. Here are several lists of cars I've been thinking of so far. Please let me know if you guys have any details on them! (BTW, I live in the US, so certain cars main not work...duh) And most of these cars will be purchased used and have low to mid miles. (No more than 40k miles.) (Also, price limit is about 35k to 40k) Hatch/Lift backs: 2016+ Golf R, 2016+ Focus RS, FK8 Civic Type R (this is near the bottom of the list). Coupes: 2015+ Mustang GT Premium Performance pack, 2016+ Camaro 1ss/2ss, Challenger Scat pack/ SRT392/ Hellcat (yea right, like I can afford one...), BRZ, Miata RF Club, Nismo 370Z, Vert Terminator Cobra, 2012 C63 amg coupe, E92 M3. More to come for this list. Sedans/ 4+_ doors: Chevy SS, Charger Scat pack/ SRT392/ Hellcat, 2015 WRX STI, Kia Stinger GT. More to come to this list. Suv/pick ups/ offr oaders: Cummins, Powerstroke, Duramax trucks lifted or not, Jeep (JK or JL and maybe a cheap v8 swap), or any v8 gas truck. I really like driving on the beach. More to come to this list. So, this is my list. It's a little messy, but it's coming along. If there are other fun daily cars you guys know, please let me know. This is a general list of all the cars that I'm interested in. Thanks!
  12. Hello everyone! I posted something about doing a custom loop in another post, but this is more concentrated to my gpu. I currently have a Powercolor Devil Radeon R9-390X with Powercolor's own closed gpu loop. I've noticed that the coolant or liquid inside seems to have evaporated. Now, I'm not sure if that's totally true, but I've noticed a significant rise in gpu temperature. It was running fine at around 45C-55C during gaming. After a short while, the temps went to 60C, 70C, and finally it's hitting 85C+ and noticed this weird sound almost like the loop is choking or it's nearly empty. I can't really explain the sound, but it sounds very disconcerting. I've had this gpu for around two years now and It's been running too hot. I've ruled the sound to the gpu cooler since I switched to the Evo 212 cpu cooler. It's not an air flow issue... so... Anyone find loops that will work with the Powercolor Devil Radeon R9-390X? I haven't seen any cpu loops that look like it would fit, now I know I can't tell by sight... I've found a custom water block for it, but that would require me buying a radiator, pump, tubes, etc. Thanks guys!
  13. Thanks Banana! I appreciate the help!
  14. Cool, thanks W-L for all the help!
  15. Oh, sorry. I have no knowledge about what pumps are made from. Would this work with an all copper build? Thermaltake Pacific DIY LCS PR22-D5 5-Speed Adjustable D5 Pump/Reservoir Combo 3-Port G 1/4" Thread Tt LCS Certified POM PMMA CL-W082-PL00BL-A
