    nicon got a reaction from coolyr in Black-N-Red Rig   
    @coolyr you should follow your own topics. 
     
    1. SLI, in case you have two GPUs. It goes on tabs covered by red-plastic things on your 970.
    2. Your case, if you want. That's what it's meant for.
    3. Yeah it's good. I would buy 2-3 120/140 fans (nocuta) for the front if you can afford it, they are superior to the 200mm (or 180mm) in there now.
    4. Great in the back, good in the front. The SATA thing is fine. 
    5. Awesome build overall. If your temps are not satisfactory, try swapping the cooler-master fan out for this.
     
    Question for you:
    How's the WD blue drive? I recently purchased one for my build and I was wondering.

    nicon reacted to ZetZet in Took off the Memory fans, so what you think? Better?   
    Not really, just the scheme is bad. Black, grey, white looks great. Red, Orange, Black too. Blue, Teal, White.
    Red blue just doesn't go well.

    Looks nice... would have gone with red or black coolant tho. I think 3 colors are 1 too many

    8/10 Amazing shot, the bokeh seems like it's almost 'pulled' into the center of the frame, weird. But great shot overall.

    get a sony a7s. you wont get the in camera stabilization like you do with the new one, but the a7s can do 4k with an external recorder which the a7 II cant. Also, your looking at quite a huge difference in price between the fs700 and the other cameras. i wouldent get an fs700 to start with as it is quite big and bulky and probably wont add much benefit when compared to the a7s for a starting youtube channel

    Some mirror less cameras are amazing. Check out Panasonic, Fuji, Sony and Olympus offerings. Many are under £400.

    Thnx! The logo will be the reservoir and I think i'm going to put 2 slim 360mm radiators in the lower section of the case (it's divided horizontal in 2 sections)

    They are Noctua's though!
     
    I just paid $28 for 2 140 Noctua's as they're meant to be the shiznitt! Those 14mm ones are like £14 here. So you're getting a well cheaper deal!
    Also,
     
    Try looking for Yate Loon D90SH-12B They are 15mm thick 92mm fans and Yate Loon aren't exactly crap - https://www.google.com/search?q=ate+Loon+D90SH-12B&oq=ate+Loon+D90SH-12B&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8&gws_rd=ssl#q=yate+Loon+D90SH-12B+15mm&tbm=shop

    Good idea. 
    360mm radiador would be cool but lets think about that when I build the custon loop. Now its sealed and I dont really want to open it because I dont have liquid to fill it again.
    At first I tought that I hide the wires under the sound isolating material but I think your idea is better.

    i5 drivers are completely different sometimes, especially if you're going from something like the 35xx to a devils canyon. Try what @nicon said.

    Do you know anybody that has a 1150 mobo you could try. If it boots in theirs, then it's something else. You can also try to reflash the bios in case something went wrong.

    THIS!
    I didn't want to make the 8 pin like this but this way the cables won't kink, i'll try it behind the tubing and post some pics of it tomorrow
    i chose this pattern because i only wanted two colours and no cablecombs, so a usual pattern wouldn't have made any sense imo and i've never seen this one before.
    Glad you like it

    Excuse my grammar, I absolutely suck at it. Like really bad.
     
    AGH! I'm so torn about whether I like the 8 pin in front of the tubing or not!  :unsure: If I was going to sit next to the computer regularly, then it would bug the crap out of me. But, it is also really unique and cool-looking (especially with those sexy tubing runs). IDK man. Anyways, I love the new cables (way better than the rainbow stock ones). I also like the way that all of the front of the cables is white and all of the back is black, instead of the usual patterned design.

    A friend says he built a computer, so I ask him the specs. He starts talking about the intel i9 processor and how he had 128 gb of ram and 4 way sli with 780tis in it (back when those just came out). I contained my laughter and asked him to show me a pic. He pulls a picture of a raspberry pi up on his phone and I just stood there like o____o.

    To fit the whole copper theme, you should put like a nocuta 60mm fan on that heatsink!

    That's a great idea, but right now I am working to get RAM from a vendor. Maybe I'll swing that way if it didn't turn out the way I wanted to be.
