    Water cooling mobo

    I’ve really started something here lol. I do appreciate the comments though and the two sides of the argument being presented. I was already definitely set on custom loop with soft tubes as the actual creation of it really interests me. I probably will pass on the Mobo at first because I’m really not overclocking that heavy (Ryzen 2700X at 4.2 mhz with 1.36v, 2080ti with a 700 mem boost and 75 on the clock) but I might go to 3rd gen when it comes out and at that point I might look at Mobo cooling and hard lines if I change the cpu. Thanks guys

    How do you justify large purchases to yourself?

    For anyone saying they cant justify that much on clothes just remember those people buying the clothes probably couldnt justify spending what we do on hardware, for them the 299.99 laptop on sale at best buy is just fine where as on here most of us wouldnt use that for anything besides a door stop. As for the OP, it just comes down to how much disposable income you have. If you make 5 or 6 grand a month and your monthly bills are like 2 grand than it would be pretty easy to justify a $1000 expenditure, not on a weekly basis but definitely far more often than someone who makes 2 grand a month and has 1600 in bills
  3. Selling online can be absolutely painful. If someone asks if its available just send a one word reply of "yes" and move on. If they are interested they will message back, if they arent they wont but dont waste any of your time banking on them answering. Its a contact sport, the more people that you contact the better chance SOMEONE actually comes through for you.

    how do you deal with apple fans

    Basically you make your points, LISTEN to theirs and the respond. At the end of the day if they dont wanna listen and discuss in a respectable fashion than just stop responding and move on, dont sweat it. I CAN tell you that referring to them as sheep is a sure way to make sure they dont listen to you at all despite whether you have good points or not. I am a die hard iPhone guy, I find them better than android in all the catagories that are important to ME, but with that said I have had lots of rational discussions with android users that generally end in both sides deciding that there is no "one is better than the other" but more "one is the better than the other based on the individual". These discussions can happen with rational people, and if you find yourself in a discussion that isnt rational than just move on.

    A tight fit if I ever seen one.

    I have a Define R6, took the drive cages out and it has copious amounts of room in it

    How Many Computers Do You Have?

    I have an iPhone and an Android phone. I deal with product for my job where having both platforms for demo and testing purposes is an advantage for me. If I wasn’t in that situation I would have never bothered getting an Android phoe

    Water cooling mobo

    Bad choice of phrasing on my part, when I said necessary I didn't mean necessary to water cool, I just meant necessary to upgrade the cooling on but that question has been answered, thank you guys very much

    Water cooling mobo

    How many of you guys actually WC the mobo? I see the kits for it but is it really necessary? What instances would you find it to be a big advantage to do this as opposed to just using the stock cooling?

    Cant Get Ram to hold speed

    Ok so quick update, after messing around I backed the ram down to 3000 mhz and set the voltage to 1.36 and its booting stable and behaving correctly and CPUZ is showing that the ram speed is correct. Not sure why it wont hold at 3200, chances are I could play with the voltage more and maybe get it to be stable but im not sure what I could put into the RAM and be safe? Anyone have insight on that? Im gonna roll with it at 3000 for now because in reality thats fine, I would like to figure out what I would need to do to get it to run stable at 3200 though if anyone has any idea

    Cant Get Ram to hold speed

    Yep 2x16. I am sure at one point in time I had this running correctly as I had cinibench scores at 1854 with lower cpu speeds. I just tried setting my BIOS back to factory defaults and then tried JUST playing with xmp or manual settings and no dice still

    Cant Get Ram to hold speed

    Ya I rechecked the manual just to be sure but ya the RAM is in it proper home

    Cant Get Ram to hold speed

    Thats what I wanted to do but for some reason if I do that It wont let me change the voltage, I assume if I cant change that It wont be stable at 3200, or am I incorrect?
