    Mick Naughty got a reaction from TheSLSAMG in I want to turn my open air gpu into a blower gpu. How do I do that?   
    Depends on the card. I put a fe cooler on my 1060ssc. Then put the acx cooler on the 1080sc. Quite easy as they are all reference stuff.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from BarackOBatman in Can you cool a pc with the cooler of a car engine?   
    I’d be more concerned with how you are gonna connect it. Would need to be hardline or automotive tubing. Same with the blocks. There’d be so much heat you’d be better off keeping it air cooled. 
    Wouldn’t be practical in one bit.

    Can’t say there would be a benefit not knowing what you do with it. 
    I overclock mine simply for how high the usage is and should have got amd stuff. 
    I hope it helps compared to running at stock. 
    I did the same as mentioned. I let the board auto overclock to see where it would go then did a manual of 50x and 1.35.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Tristerin in Custom Loop vs AIOs   
    Flow is a big factor. Even for small loops. Most aio’s have small and/or thin rads. Ek has a few with bigger ones. 
    Aio’s only exist for simplicity and looks combined.  
    I prefer to be more involved with the building of my rigs so custom is always the way to go. Also prefer to beat temp to noise ratio which neither air or an aio will come close to.

    Finally tool the grinder to one of my 540’s and make a hole for another 280 rad. Been wanting to do this for years but wanted another case first. Worked out well without me needing to make a false floor with abs which was the original plan. 
    Contemplating doing it to the other rig. 
    Also waiting on the new custom price of tempered glass to replace the aged acrylic.

    Matx is gonna be the biggest factor. 
    Assuming the cards will be single slot, might be able to get away with it. 
     
    ASUS Maximus vii gene perhaps.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Lapjun in Radiator Fan Questions   
    I use a hub. Having power fans means I need more power. Even at low speeds. I don’t have high amp headers. So I either use a hub or a powered splitter.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Deli in Corsair Hydro X series radiators   
    Just installed my second Corsair 280. Was running one with an ek 280 and 140. 
    Really like how thin they are and readily available unlike any 140 series stuff at a microcenter. 
    Seem to perform well, logo is a bad implementation but not something Corsair alway puts at the top of their priorities.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from i_build_nanosuits in Upgrade to 1070, 1080 or 2060?   
    For that price I’d rather get a used 1080ti.

    I always suggest it. Beats spending the same for a weaker card especially if we consider that a high price.

    Sound like a leak. Fill it water and find out.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from BTGbullseye in 1080ti bottleneck help   
    Think you will be alright. Friend has the same cpu with a 1080 and cpu usage is quite low compared to my stuff. 1080ti isn’t much more than a 1080 performance wise.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Lord Xeb in Monitor Won't Run on 1st Card SLI   
    Well did you end up making the other cars the primary?
    Break the sli chain, move the monitor to the other card. Restart and apply sli again. 
     
    Or keep it on the bottom card, prolly better off given the load.

    Because water blocks aren’t free. 
    His card is outdated and could be out of warranty assuming it has one.
    Still an upgrade in several ways. So if the end user wants those then it’s justified.

    I’d do it. Without a doubt. Especially if you’re using an air cooled system.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Aimi in 2060 vs 1080   
    Everyone would recommend the new architecture, warranty and efficiency. Regardless of how they perform. 
     
    I’m quite the opposite. I’d rather pick up a  1080. 
     
    like I got a 1080ti instead of a 2070. I don’t want the performance hit of rtx right now.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from Ben17 in Asus Maximus vii Hero and i7-4790k Over-Heating Issue.   
    Yea just sounds like typical software and cooler solution issues. 
    Mine ran quite hot but had it overclocked.

    Get a stronger card and not worry about either of those gimmicks.

    Mick Naughty got a reaction from i_build_nanosuits in i7-4790K + 1080ti at 1440p   
    You can get the monitor and hope it bandaids the issue. Won’t last much longer. Need a real cpu to keep up with modern cards. 
    Only reason I sold my 4790k. Cod and bf games needed more. 
    New cpu gave me the option to stay at 1080p and enjoy more frames.

    Depends on the game with a locked cpu but must likely will be ok.
