  1. Hi guys, I am looking into re-doing my loop in my 900D and I was wondering if it is possible to have a 420 in the base and a 60mm 240 in the fron in push/pull. Dream scenario would be to have the ports pointing upwards. Will that be possible? Thanks in advance,
  2. Sure it is. I am water cooling now.. So only buying a block.. And I am running my current 290 at 1220 mhz..
  3. I currently have a ref R9 290. But that is no longer available here (Denmark). But a ref R9 290X is.. And the price diff is like $40.. So I will just buy the 290x
  4. Hi guys, So I am upgrading my computer, and right now I am rocking a un-branded 800W PSU. So I will be buying a new PSU also. My specs will be as follows: CPU: i7 5820K MB: ASUS X99-A RAM: Kingston HyperX 2400 mhz 16 gb HDDs: 1 ssd 2 harddrives GPU: R9 290 + R9 290x Water cooling: 1 D5 pump + 1 bayres pump Fans: 14 x SP120 quiet edition Now I want to know how much whattage I need. As I understand it, those GPUs are pretty power hungry. I will also need some headroom as I would like to be able to add stuff to my system. So maybe 150-200 watt of headroom? And Also which PSU should I buy? I have a 900D and I am using a 360 rad in the basement next to my current PSU so I need the PSU to be no longer than 15cm. I also want the PSU to be modulair and have nice sleeved cables. Preferrable black/dark PSU. I prob should note that I do overclock a lot. Thanks in advance.
  5. So I can overclock them individually? But they have to be the same? I'm confused now..
  6. Also I am running a triple monitor setup. Do I plug the monitors in one card? Or two in one card and one in the other card?
  7. So if I overclock the 290 the 290x will follow that overclock? I am running my 290 at 1220 mhz.
  8. Hi guys, Now that GTA V has dropped it is time for an upgrade for the old lady. She is right now rocking an Asus R9 290 under water, and I am thinking of adding another card. Since the same card (reference ASUS R9 290) is very hard to get where I am at (Denmark), I have found an XFX R9 290X and the price difference is only like $50. Now does it make sense to crossfire these cards? Or is it completely insane? In a couple of months I am planning to move to x99 with a 5820K. I have some doubts regarding the cards. Since it is ASUS and XFX mixed will that matter? I use ASUS' OC software GPU Tweak to control my current card, can I still use that if I install the XFX card? Also will I get the full performance of the 290x? Or will it scale down to perform like the 290? I have never had two GPUs before. Therefore these NooB questions.
  9. Here is my rig/setup. I know it is very dusty, but what are you gonna do? I am a developer and I manage some servers, therefor the many screens/computers. Tower specs: Case: Corsair 900D CPU: i7 2600k @ 5 GHz MB: P8Z68-V Pro RAM: 8 GB Kingston 1600 Mhz PSU: 650W Corsair GPU: ASUS R9 290 4GB HDD: Samsung SSD 256 GB, 750 GB Seagate hybrid drive, 500 GB Seagate hybrid drive, 500GB Seagate hdd, 250 GB Old hdd Mouse: Intelli Explorer 3.0 Keyboard: Corsait Vengeance K95 Headset: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Speakers: Bose Companion 20 Total number of fans: 14 OS: Windows 8 Cooling: (I do not remember the names and models of my water cooling parts.

  10. Thank you very much for your reply. I ordered the parts that I linked to. I did see that you combo you were mentioning, but I really don't like it. It looks too much like myself. Short and Thick ^^
  11. Hi guys, I am looking into changing my bayres pump/resevoir with a cylinder and d5 pump combo thingy. But I have absolutely no knowledge of how cylinder resevoirs and pumps are working. I have found the following parts (Sorry that it is a danish site): http://www.coolerkit.dk/shop/ek-d5-x-top-3041p.html http://www.coolerkit.dk/shop/alphacool-cape-corp-3320p.html As I understand it, I can attach the top to my pump. But do I then attach the pump top directly to the resevoir or do I need tubing between? What I want is to not have tubing between them, so that it is like a bayres/pump combo but with a D5 and a cylinder res. Thanks in advance
  12. Sure you can. I thought that the possibility for push/pull would be larger if I mounted it in the front of the case. What kind of modding would have to be done? Do you know that? Also, I read somewhere that you will have to have low profile RAM and slim fans in order to fit it in the top?
