  1. Run DDU and install driver again.
  2. EK-MLC Phoenix

    This is no more Niche than AIOs.
  3. Download Winderstat and see what is taking up space before you do anything.
  4. You generally have to buy them online from the people who make them. that is normal. What country are you in?
  5. I guess the important question is why you can't purchase a delid tool.
  6. This is what I did and it worked perfectly. But most people don't have a 3d printer laying around. I use these for a number of things computer related. However they are not strong enough for this.
  7. Delided 8700K Temps

    Easier to show than to explain.
  8. Delided 8700K Temps

    I thought the whole idea was that it would work within that range.
  9. Delided 8700K Temps

    5Ghz as well at about the same voltage. Hitting 77 under Cinebench though.
  10. Delided 8700K Temps

    That is about what I thought. I am having the same issues a few others seem to be having. Idle Temps hovering around 40C. Just trying to track down the issue. =\
  11. Out of curiosity what are people seeing for Delidded temps on 8700Ks? I have a reason for asking but I would like to see some data points before I post my it.

    Fans are standard 120mm fans(or 140 if you go with that model). You can switch them out as you wish.

    Yes in this case it is better to use their parts. Doing otherwise is possible but not for novices. The Radiator is a 40mm class Rad and this is pretty standard for performance radiators. You have 60MM for the huge ones, 40 for performance and 25 for the slim radiators. Slim aren't that great. I have one in my build but it is a secondary Rad and is paired with a 40MM one. With the MLC you are looking at about 70mm once you include the fans. Which is roughly the same you would have with any other Radiator and fan combo.

    The QD connectors are commercially available. It is theoretically possible to use normal tubing, get a pair of these connectors and connect up the system. However you would have to take precautions to make sure the GPU block and tubing was completely full. If you already have the GPU with the block on it you may be better off selling that block and buying the appropriate one for that card. Keep in mind they make the MLC blocks for all the commonly available cards now.

    You cant' really compare this to an Asetek AIO. It is a Custom loop without the work so you pay a bit of a Premium for the convenience factor. And really the pricing isn't that bad when you look at what you get. For a complete loop with 360mm Rad, Pump, tubing, and a CPU and GPU block you come out to around 425 with this system. Now lets say I decided to part it out myself. EK DDC Pump/Res combo $149.99 EK 360mm Rad $79.99 EK Supremacy Block $79.99 EK 1080Ti FTW3 block $139.99 I am already at 450 there without adding in tubing or coolant (although I would just use water) The downside to the MLC is that you can't do as much to make it a showpiece. Hardline, colored liquid, etc. But that isn't the point of it. I am seriously considering it for my secondary system that I want to look good but doesn't have to be perfect. I would get much better temps at about the same cost and could have it all done in an hour instead of an all day project.
