    Instead of this I wish AMD would fix their drivers properly for once

    MY FRIEND IS EXACTLY THE SAME. He says "I will never put an AMD part in my system" since he's such a fanboy. He doesn't even use Geforce Experience or anything, I think the last time he updated drivers it was by accident.

    Spamming topics is not going to make people want to respond any more than they did before. Additionally, this is in the wrong sub-forum. Again.

    OK folks, got a few updates, comin' in hot!  Mostly for waterblocks placement.
     
    First, a few shots of the motherboard block (EK's Full Cover Monoblock).  I really like it, and it wasn't too hard to put on.  
     
     

     

     

     
    Next, I put on the EK full cover blocks for the GTX 980 Tis:
     

     

     

     
    Finally, I did the RAM blocks.  Step one was removing the Ripjaws heatspreader with a heat gun and some old fashioned prying.  Be careful!  A friend (ahem) once ripped off one of the chips in this process.
     

     

     
    Unfortunately, the adhesive leaves some weird residue on the chips:
     

     
    Normally, I use isopropyl alcohol or the specialized TIM remover for this task, but the TIM remover wasn't working well on the adhesive, and I was all out of alcohol.  Nail polish remover, while not recommended, will do the trick:
     

     
    Now for the thermal pads:
     

     
    And then putting on the Monarch heatspreaders.  Note that when you're putting the ram sticks into the heatspreaders, make sure they're in roughly the same position.  DIMMs on the board don't move, obviously, so you want the Monarch screw holes to all line up when the RAM is in so that you can properly attach the waterblock on top.
     

     
    Now to see it all on the mobo:
     

     

     

     
    Au revoir!  More details about the process and such in my video log, which will go up this weekend.

    I own the reference cooled R9 290. I have it in an mITX case with restricted airflow, and an 1100MHz OC. It's not that loud, and it stays under 80C because I set the target temp lower in exchange for a slightly louder card. People are so mislead about the cooler.

    IMHO: who gives a shit. Is the Samsung multi core faster? Yes. What phone has shit battery life? The Samsung. As long as the UI doesn't lag and it has low power consumption, who cares if the Samsung, it's hot if you use it and has a potato battery, benches slightly higher.
    Apple got it right, as long as the user experience is good, the numbers don't matter.

    I remember back when there was 15 topics a day about someone having black screens with their AMD drivers, now there are almost no issues

    As an AMD user it would have been nicer to have it earlier but I've had a fine time without drivers since hour one. It's not like it was broken on launch and needed a day 1 driver to work. Plus given that AMD recently changed up the management structure for their whole graphics division, I'll gladly give them some slack.

    As for "better to live than be killed by islamic terrorists", Every year more people drown in their bathtub than die as a result of terror attacks. Perhaps they should install cameras in your bathroom too? After all it's better to live than to drown, right?

    Saying that you have nothing to hide is an utter lie; if it isn't I would kindly ask you to give me all your private information including credit card numbers and all your passwords
    ...oh wait that's an invasion of privacy (I guess we do have some things to hide)
     
    Plus saying it will be a fine way to kick a** is a really poor argument when we're talking about misuse of information

    This honestly sounds like a bad plan to me. I know they just came from a tragedy, but breaking the barrier of privacy isn't the best solution to me.
    I'm hoping that they only keep the law when they're on high alert, but I feel like the power will be abused by someone by the time it's up and running.
