  1. Wow Awesome giveaways currently here!! I am running a R9 290 right now and its really chewing through my electricity bill. So I would like the new AMD Card to reduce that, while keeping the performance
  2. I am running an LG 3440x1440 Ultrawide with my R9 290. Actually i've been running it for over one year now. In my opinion Ultrawide is really nice for playing most games, it simply makes the experiance more "intense" 4K only if you buy a Monitor that is around 30" or bigger. 40" would be ideal as it is basicly two 34" ultrawides on top of each other^^ If possible get Freesync or G-sync it helps alot!!
  3. I would never Use Sli/crossfire. Always better to buy one single card for optimal experiance..Also I love Mini-ITX.
  4. Only two ways to do this: 1. Wait until Custom 480 and Custom 1060 are out, then decide 2. Nope this seems to be the best way
  5. This is basicly the best Projector for Lan setups!! Playing some Multiplayer games on the big screen...an not needing an aweful lot of space is awesome!
  6. 1. It is safe to order from Alphacool directly, however they will probably ship from Germany so that can take some time 2. DHL is one of the best shipping companies worldwide, they are very fast and reliable. They are also the worlds biggest logistics concern. They are in fact bigger than Fedex and UPS I have orderderd from Alphacool before, they take their time in answering e-mails... However they are very kind people and will help you if you ask for it.

  8. Where i also see nvidia getting rekt is that they came out and said that they screwed up. Even ifit only was some guy representing them... Thats going to be an interesting court case
  9. Well the real problem here is that nvidia used false advertising... Wether or not the card is actually performing really well does not matter in this case. One completly stupid example: If you buy something for 3$ and give me 5$ you should get 2$ back, but i will only give you 1,99$. Soo 1,99 is nearly 2$ so no problem right? Nope in law that would be stealing... Its just sad that the lawfirm will take most of the money. This will not help anyone except the lawyers...
  10. As long as it is a new tech, i am excited. But i would not buy it, its probably going to be waaaaayyyy to expensive.
  11. The Problem he is having is that the r9 295x2 has a temp target of 75°C! Which cannot be set higher and at which the card starts to throttle. This is due to the fact that the pumps have a max operating temp of 60°C. I would suggest high pressure fans in push-pull on the rad, to get max overclocks;) Plus more ventilation of course
  12. WUHUU Steampunk! ...sorry had to do it
  13. I have the H220X. Yes, you CAN hear the Pump. You can hear any Pump, because they have moving parts! Atleast if you get close enough. The only thing that is a littel annoying is that you have to make sure the Radiator/Pump is decoupled from the Case because it will transfer Vibrations and be loud. In my Air 240 the Rad touches the metal Part of the case which leads to Vibration noise. But even that noise is nothing compared to Noiseblocker eloops spinning at 1000rpm, which should tell you that it is not exactly loud. Also i have my case sitting 50cm away from me on my desk Also the MCP30 Pump is a decent Pump, it is similar to a Laing DDC design and can Push 600l/h, it is far better than the pumps in other Aio's. Also to answer your Question: If you leave it closed, swiftech says the coolent will be good for ~2-3 Years. after that you should change it But you can also change it to whatever you want;)
  14. I would recommend going with something bigger than 120mm for the r9 290. Atleast if you want to go more quiet.
  15. Seems funny to me, these are the exact same reasons i did my custom loop^^ You could also go with two Aios. Using the Corsair HG10 bracket and a nice 140mm Aio or 240mm Aio. And then go for a 360 Aio on the CPU like the new fractal design Kelvin S36. They are louder than a custom loop and also not as much fun to fiddle with, but are cheaper and less hassle. So just to get the word across, there is always an easy and a fun version So for you to have an example: I am running a Xeon 1230v3 at 3.7 Ghz and a OC R9 290(1200/1450) with two 240mm radiators and get ~70°C on the GPU and CPU load temps with fans at ~700rpm and MCP30 pump at 30% which is a very quiet setup. For you this means with one 360mm and one 240mm you should be good to go with low noise and low temps
