    shibbs got a reaction from shadowbyte in What do you recommend for a large (7 foot+ length) desk?   
    I actually like that enough, but I worry about sag in the middle. Also it's a bit shallow at less than 26". I've actually considered picking up a solid top from a kitchen table and then attaching some of the Bekant sit/stand legs on it with some bracing underneath to prevent sag. Not sure what the weight capacity on the sit/stand legs are, though.

    Cheapest it's ever been, and good build quality if it's anything like the dual monitor mount.

    shibbs got a reaction from KenjiUmino in Corsair Hydro H55 vs H90 - worth the higher price?   
    I used a H90 for years on my PC. Now it's on the wife's gaming box. Still going strong. It's a great cooler. I changed the fan to something better, but that's not completely necessary at all.

    shibbs got a reaction from GreezyJeezy in is there a sub $65 closed loop watercooler?   
    Yeah, have him save up. 212evo with the stock fan will be a plenty good cooler as long as he keeps the voltage below 1.3vcore.

    shibbs got a reaction from Th3_Pookie in Best 3x120mm AIO?   
    The EK Predator will be your best bet if you really want the best 3x120.
     
    That being said, as much as it pains me to say "OK" to a Thermalfake product, the Thermalfake system is an Asetek pump and rad, and I've had extremely good luck with Asetek stuff in the past. You will have no issues if you do go with the ThermalFake.

    shibbs got a reaction from DrJones in Bitspower or EK Hardline Fittings?   
    EDIT: EK's 90 degree fittings are made for attaching one end to a block/rad and the other end would require a fitting.
     
    If you want a 90 degree fitting with compression fittings on either end, Bitspower has some great compact options.

    shibbs got a reaction from Gill in Avoiding Anti Corrosion - help required   
    I've got a buddy running a super ghetto cooling loop in his PC. He's using literally the cheapest stuff he can find---I'm talking aluminum radiators, brass heater cores, (from his old racecar) nickel plated cpu blocks and regular copper blocks and a PVC 3-gallon reservoir. He's running green automotive coolant (50/50 premixed bottles) with a biocice and has no traces of corrosion a year later.

    shibbs got a reaction from BbsMentos in [QUESTION] Custom Hardtubed Watercooling   
    It's easier to bend. That, to me, is huge. Acrylic is much pickier than PETG temperature-wise.
    It's easier to cut and deburr.

    shibbs got a reaction from MarAcurite in Front mounted rad question.   
    I, too, have the R5.
     
    Set the radiator in the front to pull in fresh air. Then have a single airflow fan (140mm is best in that case) to exhaust air out the back. Leave the moduvents on the top. Have the PSU pull in air from the bottom (fresh and filtered), and out the back.
     
    This is approximately what I do in mine, and I get some pretty damn good temps.

    shibbs reacted to MarAcurite in Front mounted rad question.   
    That's what I was thinking I was just wanting a 2nd opinion, thanks man! I'll pick some up when I go and pick up my 1080 from MicroCenter. Whenever they get them in... Have been waiting for the EVGA FTW edition.

    shibbs got a reaction from MarAcurite in Front mounted rad question.   
    You'll really want SP fans. Think: You're pulling through the dust filter AND then pushing through the radiator. AF fans are going to choke bigtime.
     
    EDIT: If you do tack on some AF fans, I don't think they'll do enough to justify the extra power usage or trouble.

    shibbs got a reaction from MarAcurite in Front mounted rad question.   
    Well, that depends. My graphics cards are the loudest part, unfortunately. I water cooled one, but the second will be liquid soonish.
     
    For reference:  
    2x LTT SPECIAL EDITION Noctua 140mm intake fans through 45mm 280mm Hardware Labs rad
    1x iPPC 2000rpm 140 fan for intake on bottom (really helps with GPU temps)
    1x iPPC 2000rpm 140 fan exhaust through 45mm thick 140mm Hardware Labs rad
     
    All the fans are less than 1000rpm at all times. 

     
    And yes, good overclocks for everything. lol  GPUs are at 1500 mhz, and CPU is 4.6 ghz. Wasn't quite stable at 4.7, and I didn't like feeding it over 1.3 vcore.

    shibbs got a reaction from iM8Pizza in Which one of these SSDs should I pick?   
    I just picked up a Trion 150 and ran it against my Evo 850 with Crystal Disk Mark.
     
    The Trion was about 30% cheaper. It was also almost exactly 30% slower.
     
    If speed is your priority, go with the Samsung.

    shibbs got a reaction from DevilishBooster in Workshop Idea: Use one reference PCB to test all the aftermarket coolers   
    In all honesty, they could even take the card itself out of the question (because BrandA's custom PCB might not allow BrandB's cooler to mount properly) and just use a simulated die made out of copper. Load that block/die with sensors and heaters, strap it to the cooler, and then measure its performance. Linus's neighbor has a mill, he could make this easily.

    It's not just straight compressed air, it's actually a refrigerant---and it's got a bitterant in it to prevent people from huffing the stuff and killing themselves.

    shibbs got a reaction from Cobiee in Quick question regarding pump RPM   
    I run my pump pretty slow, because I want it to spend more time in my rear radiator before running to the front. 
     
    Not sure if there's any science to that, but hey, it makes sense to me. haha

    Was on a similar deal a while ago. I snagged it. Really happy with it.
     
    The range on the 5ghz band is meh at best, but 2.4ghz band is really good for not having a crazy antenna setup.

    shibbs got a reaction from LordDre in Help me pick an AIO water cooler   
    And the air-cooler people are in here already.  Ignore them, I've never heard the pump on my Corsair H90.
     
    I'd recommend picking up an Asetek-model AIO (round pump)
     
    H55 or H75 should be just fine.
     
    EDIT: Most/all of the round pumps like the H90 H55 H75 are made by Asetek, and rebraned by Corsair/NZXT/Thermaltake.
