  1. Well it appears everything is working now.
  2. I didn't think of doing that...good news is I just tried again and it looks like it may be working now after about the 10th time of trying to get through the setup. We will see...
  3. Hey guys, I've been trying to do a clean install of Windows on my PC (see specs in my signature). However, I can't even get through the setup without the monitor going black. The PC is still running and I can hear Cortana talking through the Windows setup, but the signal to the monitor is getting cut off for some reason. I've tried a new HDMI cable, but that didn't work. I have no idea what to do considering I can't even get it to boot up and run through setup before the screen goes black.
  4. Ahh I gotcha. Thanks for the feedback.
  5. You wouldn't by new yet because there is some new stuff coming out 2019? Does Corsair have any GPU coolers for the 980TI?
  6. Yea that is what I was thinking. I never move my computer around so I'm not worried about that. The reality is by the time I buy the Noctua, fans, a better air cooler (Morpheus 2?), I will be in it for just as much as a new x42 and x62. I might just end up sticking with the AIOs. What seems to be the top AIOs now a days anyways? Sticking with NZXT is probably my best bet since I know they will fit. Will be simple to swap out.
  7. Interesting...never heard of that one before. I will take a look. That would be great if there was just a better air cooler I could throw on it. This thing relatively easy to install? @GoldenLag Thing is big. Wondering if my case would have room for that plus fans and then the Noctua NH-D15...
  8. See my build here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/bcnnTW I'm considering changing over from my NZXT AIOs (Kraken x41 and x61) to the Noctua NH-D15 (black chromax) with all new Noctua chromax case fans. I would put the original air cooler back on my MSI 980TI. My biggest concern is going back to air cooling on the MSI 980TI. The Kraken x41 keeps temps cool and keeps it quiet (no noisy fans), which is great. That said, I don't game at all. I built this system ~4 years ago, mostly for fun, and thought I might get into PC gaming, but never did. I do a little bit of 4K video edi
  9. Thanks. Hard to believe I built it almost 4 years ago. I learned a lot back then, but I’ve forgot a lot of what I learned haha
  10. Does anyone know if the Noctua NH-D15 will fit in a Fractal Define S with two sticks of Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM? I'm honestly thinking about converting over from my NZXT AIO to air cooling. The pump on my NZXT x41 is failing and I'm kind of over water cooling. Don't feel like spending $300+ to upgrade to the x62 and x42. Tired of pump noise, CAM software, etc. My full build is here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/bcnnTW Thanks for the help.
  11. Thanks. Think I will pick up some Kryonaut
  12. Yea I know CAM sucks lol. I verified with HWInfo...says the same.
  13. Looks like the pump on my NZXT x41 has died. I got about 3.5 years out of it, which doesn't seem all the great, but oh well. I'm trying to decide if I want to throw the old stock MSI cooler on it or go for the NZXT x42. Open to other suggestions as well. Would rather pay for good quality, but I don't have any intentions of a custom loop. FWIW, I don't really game, so having a liquid cooler is more just for the looks ha. Are there any other quality AIO coolers out there that I should be looking at? Any recommendations, suggestions, etc are appreciated. Specs
  14. Well I think my NZXT Kraken x41 pump died. I'm not sure if am going to replace it with an x42 or just throw the old stock cooler on. It has been a long time since I was updated on the best thermal pastes out there now a days. Any suggestions? Thanks.
