  1. You dont need to buy any more fittings than you would for flexi tubing , i just use C47 Bitspower multi link and just bend my tube where i want it to go , with EK HD 10/12 rigid , and you can do really tight bends if you make a decent jig , i find the monsoon kit , not tight enough , i did some good tight bends with it , but i find now my new jig 30 mm radius to be a good compromise between tight 90" and not too tight that the tube will deform , flatten. I dont like seeing lots of fittings in a loop , i only like to see a fitting at the start point of a run of tubing , ie. one fitting o
  2. Well thank you all for your time to reply to my questions , however i did decide to stay with my 4790K , as i already had it and the more i read , and the more benchmarks i looked at , the more it made sense to keep my 4790K , as stated in other replies , power efficiency being a lot better , with slightly better performance in current games , it made no sense to go X99 just to get a better MOBO and future 32 GBs M.2 , as far as i can see there is Zero information that says there will be fast M.2 at any time even remotely soon , at an affordable price. It is this lack of any M.2 32GBs at a
  3. Thanks for all your input guys , i appreciate all of it , its still a tough call for me , as i do not have any illusions about what is best or fastest , the 4790k is just slightly faster , but the Z97 mobo i want , the GA-Z97X G1 WIFI BK i really like but it totally sux it does not have M.2 , and i dont want an ugly PCIE adapter for M.2 , so then i look at the next Mobo i like the MSI x99 Gaming 9 ACK and yes that does not have the intel nix just the killer , is that a real issue ? i dont know ?, but i also want my mobo to be black red and have narrowed it down to these 2 boards , the MSI has
  4. No like i said , a bit , exactly what price difference i stated , $150 NZD less which is even cheaper again if you convert the money, as i said money has zero to do with it , its more to do with the better MOBO i can get with X99 and thats all , Ram used to be $1000 here for 16GB ram its now $401.35 you live in the wrong country , i can get a whole rig for 110.97 USD more than Z97 that is all ,they are almost the same price
  5. Ok so what about music editing and recording with real time effects rack ? extremely hungry on CPU power ! Ok so have a laugh about this then ,and give opinions about music editing and live recording as above , so is X99 with say MSI Gaming 9 ACK and i7 5820K good for above. Right , i have a i74790K brand new box not opened + 8 GB Ram , but i am thinking of X99 set up above before even trying it ! , wtf why ? aye ? ok i damaged my z97 mobo and need a new mobo , and will regardless , get the top of line GA-Z97X G1-WIFI-BK and stay with 4790k , or i have the opportunity to sell it and a
  6. I already have the Photon 270 ,I was asking if anyone else had it and what they think of flow in the Res inself, as the design means most of the fluid bypasses the res, because of the baffle I'v not installed mine yet, waiting for GPU before I can start.
  7. Hi , I have a question about the res : I have one ,and not installed yet, I hear disturbing newz that the water in the res hardly moves at all, as in does not contribute to the loop , but sits in the res like a big bottle of water ,being just that a big bottle of water, and takes hours to cycle ,like if you put dye in it stays in res for hours before moving through the loop , because of the design. How do you find it, are you happy with it, does it seem to sit stagnant in the loop and not move ?

  9. Ok thanks for the feed back , bit of a buma to hear that you have no confidence in Mayhems, I dont know any of the other brands, Iv just herd a lot of preference to mayhems. This makes the decision harder then, the problem is I do really like the UV look ,or at least a pastel green or red or something. I guess its at my own risk then and I just may have a clean up job of CPU block and tubes, hopefully not my glass res too My XSPC RX 360 Rad arrived today, looks great on outside, but inside,looks half silver half copper, and very minor looking surface corrosion ,not at all bad, but looks
  10. So I dont make an " ass "of a choice then B negative, what would you suggest for my Acrylic tube loop, to minimalize any staining and gunk build up, given I want UV effect if possible and a green colour or maybe clear blue ? Im guessing starting with distilled water and bioside and what dye ? Im asking because I respect your opinion, but now a little confused, as I thought from all the feed back and forums that Mayhems is best, but I have just been reading , Overclockers.net : Acrylic pipe bending 101 page 15,and you say in reference to the dudes chocolate coloured coolant : " No,thats
  11. First of all I am a rookie and appreciate any feedback, But your reply seems only to back up every thing I said, its the clear flexi tubing and the mix of other elements together and not the dye alone that cause clogging, it doesn't seem logical that an extremely small amount of matter (dye powder ) can cause a much larger buildup of gunk, it must be platicizer ? and other things ? I still havnt decided on my coolant ,I don't no what is best yet, I was thinking just distilled water , bioside and I do like blood red ,but will stain too much, also like Green/yellow or clear blue, I like the
  12. Iv not bought any dye or tube yet, still researching and reading forums, I want to go acrylic and a UV dye , like green, but want to know if it will stain acrylic ( red will probably because the dye is very powerful stainer. ) even though I have no experience what so ever with any custom loop ( its my first to come soon ) But I am a painter by trade and now work with mixing paint formulas , and one thing i can say with absolute certainty is there is absolutely no way in hell a dye will ever cause gunk build up ,its laughable , the amount of powder to make an extremely strong 10 ltr mix
  13. Just looked at my inside of 750D and mine is different than all your guys..i wish it wasn't as ,id prefer it was like everyone else's, and to know my case is ok,,and not an early model ,but probably not as i only got it last week ,and our main Shop in New Zealand here is PB Technologies, they only got the cases in 2 weeks ago, so its probably the other way around and this is some improvement made by corsair ? My stand offs are not the raised bump type i see in all the pics I have seen, but instead the motherboard try is dead flat and it has hexagonal stand offs with hex outside,thread insi
  14. Hi all I have a 750D and want to make a 360 rad work ( up top preferably ,instead of moving psu upfront with 90* tilt) I also want to use the D5 photon 270mm reservoir as i like its size ,looks ,and think it will cool better, with more liquid content than the 170mm It will be a reasonably basic system to cool, as i will probably only ever be using just one high end GPU However i will want cool,as I will be installing i7 4790K cpu on a GA - Z97X Gaming 3 motherboard,but only cooling the CPU at first, but when i have some $ i will upgrade graphics card and water cool it too, so think
