  1. The radiator will be mounted to the top of the case for that reason regardless. I’m more asking about the Pump block itself.
  2. Hey guys, working on my first build and ran into a small problem. I’m doing a sffpc on a mini ITX board, and didn’t really consider that when selecting my AIO water cooler. The problem is that if I set it up with the log oriented properly and the inlet/outlet coming out the bottom right, it impedes on a RAM slot. So the choices are run only 1 stick of RAM, or turn the block 90° so the hoses are either on the top or the bottom. Prefer the top personally. My question is will this hamper cooling performance? It shouldn’t if the closed water system is free of air right? I just don’t know if the outlet was on the very bottom right because it uses gravity or anything. Might be a silly question but I just want to be sure.
  3. Ok, so what defines good quality? or "way better"? I see that model is modular. That's nice!
  4. Is it cheaping out? It's over 300w higher than estimated usage. I just got the power supply that was recommended for the case. bought them from Fry's at the same time. I was told it was basically made for that case. What would you recommend?
  5. So I got this case for dirt cheap ($38) at Fry's on black friday. And My intent was to just stick the guts of my existing, relatively powerful, albeit ugly, Supermicro server case, into the "fancy new lighty uppy" case. Well, that didn't happen because me, never having built a PC, didn't realize that ugly betty had an eATX mobo, and fancy lighty uppy would only support an mATX. SO What started as a "just a motherboard" quickly devolved into much more. Couldn't use my existing GPU as the case only supported 260mm. The MSI 2070 Super I found was 256mm. Couldn't find a 2080 that size, BUT I feel like the 2070 Super is better anyway and had better clock speeds anyway. Now you may be asking yourself "Self, why is this dumbass not just buying a different case to support his original plan" And I'll tell you why. Because I'm weak and distracted by shiny things. NEXT. but really, what it comes down to is that I found such great deals on these components, that I can justify it because I know that my ugly betty hardware is worth enough to sell and recoup most, if not all, of the cost of the upgraded machine. Anyway, lots of the stuff in this build I already have. So if it's listed as $0, it's just because I already had it laying around. I digress. What do you think? I'm pretty pleased personally. Should all be here by the 4th or 5th.
