  1. At this point it seems like nobody has suggested the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro, so I might be going with Asus. It´s also funny that nobody has preferred any Apple laptop (for some reason)
  2. The Asus model i was looking has an UHD IPS panel which people say is very nice.
  3. Good reliability, fast operation and technology to last at least three years. Edit: Maximum screen size 15,6 inches.
  4. Hello forum! I am going to need a new laptop for studies since my school starts next week. The budget is up to 1500 euros (can go a bit over if the reason is good). The laptop should come with a good processor, SSD and low weight. I have been looking for two options. One is the Asus Zenbook Pro (also known as the Asus UX501JW) and the other one is Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. I know that Asus has a more powerful CPU and GPU but it is also quite a lot bigger than Lenovo. Asus also has a matte screen, but Lenovo doesn´t, tho Lenovo has a touchscreen and it can be flipped 360 degrees. Asus and
  5. Get a Corsair K70 RGB keyboard. As an owner I have nothing bad to say about it. Awesome build quality and nice switches (mines are Cherry MX Reds).
  6. Probably yes, but I wanted some red accents to the build that go together with the red led strip outside the case. Anyways the color of the coolant is pretty easy to change when draining the loop every six months. Gonna do some changes in the future for sure. This was my first water cooling build so I wanted to keep it very simple. That explains the pump/res combo. But thanks for the comment!
  7. Hello again! It is time for the final photos! All in all, I´m very happy with the way everything turned out. Filling went well and everything is up and running. Please let me know what you think, I would appreciate your opinion Still going to post some photos of the system powered on when it is dark.
  8. Thanks! Maybe in the future, at the same time I add the GPU block And I can always use the radiator top ports to drain the loop if needed.
  9. Looking forward to the photos!
  10. Hello! Here are some temperatures while waiting for the final pictures: Cpu temps in idle: under 30 degrees Cpu temps while playing BF4: max 50 degrees Before the loop my cpu was around 45 degrees in idle
  11. Yes, that´s true, sorry if I didn´t point it out correctly. What I was meaning, is that when you buy a product that has some kind of an issue, it automatically affects your personal opinion about it. In my case, two gtx 970´s with coil whine in a row didn´t increase the trust on that particular GPU model. When the third card (Gigabyte G1 model) worked, I was very happy with that specific model. And the fact is, that the gtx 970 model in general has had way more coil whine issues than other cards (gtx 980 for example). Even if the issue is just luck of the draw. That was my point sir.
