I see you went for the holy grail: Water cooling your GPU and keeping that awesome
stock cooler on it.
That's the downside of having such a nice-looking stock cooler I suppose.
it usually goes away when putting the card under water.
Anyway, I got my machine assembled finally:
(build log link in sig, for those interested)

Finally looped up my motherboard, currently working on assembling the build:

CaSsE reacted to AlexCom in Black and white watecooled build!
I posted some problems in the watercooling section about this, but they got solved in the meantime, so I`m posting it here, happily.. finally.
Well, after waiting a few months for parts, mostly because of knowledge issues, I built my first fully watercooled PC!
CPU: 5820K OC at 4.5 Ghz with 1.3V
GPUs: GTX 980 a bit OC
MB: ASUS X99 Deluxe
Memory: DDR4 Corsair Dominator at 2666 Mhz
PSU: Corsair H1000i
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Primo
Watercooling parts: Alphacool rads (one thick 280 and one medium 480), fittings and D5 pump, EK waterblocks, fans for the rads Corsair Low Noise High Static Pressure and for general airflow around the case, the Phanteks fans.
Unfortunately, I can`t put the wire shield/reservoir holder because of the second card.
So here are some pictures, I hope you like it!
CaSsE reacted to rhyseyness in BEWARE Buying Seagate 2TB 7200.14 ST2000DM001 Drives!
Wikipedia is your reliable source?
I have the same model HDD. It's silent and is more than fast enough.
I think the one you recieved was probably just broken.
Please don't go posting crap like this: "Don't buy product x because I bought it and got a broken one."
You were unlucky, it's not the manufacturers fault. They didn't make it like that on purpose.
CaSsE reacted to Ghost in What's the point of leak testing for extended periods?
I persoanlly run my loop for 60-120 mins and try and pull the tubing out of the fittings to see if it holds.

CaSsE reacted to LinusTech in Linus's cat may have been found!
In the best mood ever right now and I'm about to go out for dinner, but I want to thank a few others as well as our forum community.
Missing Pets in BC has a great Facebook page that I wish more people were aware of. It's great that I have this huge (and awesome) group of people to help support me with something like this, but not everyone does, so I'd love for everyone who reads this to take a couple moments to find out if there's a similar local organiziation or facebook page or something and give them a like. What they do is so important to so many people.
They do more than just post the pets, but they can give advice and support about what information to provide and local animal shelters and the like.
I'm just so glad he's coming home... The last time I went out looking for him I didn't knock on doors... I was actually trying to see if I could smell decaying flesh in the woods near my house because I just wanted to know what happened to him...I tried not to but sometimes at night I couldn't help but lie there and think about how much it must have hurt to die from being eaten alive... And that that's what probably happened to my baby... I'm so glad he's safe. Even if whoever found him decided they didn't want to give him back, I would still be so happy to know he's okay... The fact that I'm getting him back is unbelievable.
CaSsE reacted to colonel_mortis in 250gb Samsung 840 series for £50!?
It depends on how much they'll loose. If the cost to them if £100 per unit, and they sold 2000 of them (say, it did go to the top of the best sellers list for a couple of hours), that's a lot of money. Plus personally it would actually make no difference to how I treated amazon if they didn't fulfil the orders, even if it would to some people.
CaSsE reacted to Ghost in This Is Madness - Messed Upo
Both top ports on the bottom GPU are used as an outlet, both bottom ports on the top GPU are used as an inlet. Bottom left port is half "passthrough" to the second GPU. The top right port is a passthrough outlet.
It works, you either get it or you don't. No point discussing it, we could be here for days if you don't get it right off.
You will most likely end up using a SLI/Crossfire Bridge which does this inside the module anyway.
CaSsE reacted to airdeano in Is there a way to have your pump speed/power/voltage correlate directly with your PC usage?
my point exactly. the heat does effect life expectancy. it is an un-planned spec.
rated 12v-24v, can run 8v (usually start voltage) supply voltage.
if plans are for a vario (5-step selector) you'll spend a lot of time switching speeds.
its best to find the slowest, best thermal, and quietest setting tolerable and go with
that. switching speeds really doesn't subtract monster degrees of performance.
i kinda stay on the track of set it all up on one speed and worry about other systems
than if the fans/pump are throttling and what the temperatures are doing.. just making
more work (limited or no return) for short amounts of gains.
CaSsE reacted to Judahnator in Is GreenLuma illegal, if so what are the odds of getting cought?
Not true at all @Snapy1
Look at it this way:
A movie may last around 2 hours. I usually take around 10 hours to finish a campaign, and on some games i have over 200 hours of gameplay. Could you watch 200 hours of the same movie without getting bored?
There are many other reasons why a video game costs much more to make then a game. In my opinion, the extra cost is well worth it.
If you dont want to pay so much for AAA titles, you can always visit the land of "indie games." They are usually a bit cheaper.
I do not in ANY way think stealing is ok, and the excuse "its too expensive" is just pathetic. Would you steal an expensive car, and when the cops come knocking expect to get away with it saying "it was too expensive, so i stole it?" People work hard so you can enjoy it, do them a favor by buying the game.
Why not ask for video games for Christmas or your birthday? If that isnt an option, then get a job and buy them yourself.
