  1. Aesthetics, separation of the PSU compartment from the upper chamber, looks better when you use 2x 140 mm fans.
  2. For the sake of completeness, I will contribute to the thread and say you are looking for Monsoon fittings. They caused no ends of trouble for people not knowing it had actual silver plating and reacted with various coolants. Silver really has no place in the modern PC watercooling scene so I would heavily advise against them, but this is what you asked for. https://www.titanrig.com/monsoon-g14-to-38-id-12-od-free-center-hardline-compression-fitting-for-use-with-monsoon-rigid-tubing-only-0360mo012400xx.html#93=164
  3. Well, I guess you can try the other port too. But generally speaking if you want the tablet to act as a host and read/utilize the device, it should go to the host port. Whereas if you want the tablet to be a readable device (e.g. by a PC) you should connect it through the other USB port.
  4. -Edit- Yes, I think so, use the USB host one to connect keyboard and flash disks.
  5. They're both USB2.0 headers, so it shouldn't make a difference. The only thing I am uncertain is whether the tablet supports reading the contents of a USB flash memory, at least from the manual it didn't sound like that was a thing.
  6. As I predicted, the 4x NVME drives have nothing to do with the issue, you probably ought to edit the title and thread as you're just sending everybody on a wrong trail. Perhaps can you double confirm outside of BIOS in GPU-Z for example that this is genuine and not some kind of funky artifact of PCIe 3.0/4.0 nomenclature.
  7. Does removing the NVMe drives restore 16x connectivity? probably good to rule out whether the NVMe drives are related to the problem or not.
  8. Just so that I understand, is it one of these 180 adapters that caught fire? Always was curious about these things, but I guess not anymore.
  9. Get a D5 pump, and any waterblock that is compatible. Water lock design and brand makes very little difference to performance so you can pretty much choose by looks after compatibility (for this reason I think EKs newer stuff is overpriced and prefer watercool) PETG is easier to work with (cutting and bending) and that’s it’s only relevant pro against acrylic. This shatter resistance is really a moot point popularised by Jayztwocents as your tubes should never have any chance of receiving that kind of impact force in the PC. If it does. Either your components themselves or other
  10. Maintenance is not just about replacing the coolant, you should consider cleaning the insides of the blocks occasionally. Doing a custom loop on a new build is fine, nothing intrinsically wrong about it as long as you know the components work.
  11. 1. Make sure you are 120% sure you want to do it, if you have doubts, probably better steer clear 2. If you want to do hard tubing, regardless of whether it is your first time or not, just do it. No amount of soft tubing experience will prepare you for hard tubing 3. Buy cheap and you will buy twice, so invest in quality 4. If shipping is not free, better buy in slight excess as time is money too (regarding fittings, tubing, etc) 5. Get a proper coolant
  12. My advice: spend part of the $300 on an aircooler or liquid cooled AIO. Buy the system, assemble it as a normal air-cooled system. Play with it for a while, ask yourself whether you really want a custom liquid cooled system, and then decide whether you have the courage to do it yourself or not. That way you know your system a bit better and you might decide that you need the remiander of the $300 for something else anyway. In short, no, I wouldn't get somebody to assemble a custom loop for you.
  13. In my opinion, a CPU-only loop does not often significantly outperform for example a 360 mm radiator AIO, so for performance it makes the least sense. GPU cooling works quite well, so if you have a loud and hot GPU, a GPU-only loop makes more sense in my (unpopular) opinion. Again, its more about the aftercare and support he is willing to provide, because if it just means that when something goes wrong or 1 year later for maitenance, you yourself will have to learn how to take apart a loop and put it back together, then you might as well learn now and then do it yourself. So in my
