  1. der8auer used diluted EKWB CryoFuel Solid in his latest build, you can see it pretty well in this video
  2. Most boards won't post without graphics, and the 3600 doesn't have internal graphics. Throw the card in there and see if you get a boot.
  3. I'd go for hard in the front, soft in the back. While PVC-softtubing doesn't hold up as long as acrylic hardtubing and needs to be changed more often, it's easier and cheaper to swap out. It also makes work on other parts of the cooling loop easier.
  4. Well I'll run SLI, so... ? With two GPUs and triple slot spacing there's just barely enough room for a 30mm radiator in the bottom. With two slot spacing and a motherboard that has a pcie slot at the absolute top I could have fit the 60mm in the bottom, but the only X470/X570 board with that slot arrangement is the MSI MEG X570 Godlike and that one was too expensive.
  5. Well, I kinda ran out of space for my second 60mm radiator, so I had to mount it externally under my desk. The sode mount still has space for a 45, but since I don't already have one, i just covered the hole with the printed plates. And a quick update on the OC'ing: Holy friggin' crap! On X99 the fastest I got out of my HyperX Fury (2133 stock, the cheapest 32GB kit at the time) was 2800 at 1.2V and nothing more, not even hat higher volateges. On X470 I pushed that kit to 3200-16-18-18-35 at 1.35. My new TimeSpy score is 11190, an almost 1300 point difference.
  6. Alrighty, today I built the CPU loop as I'm still waiting for the second 1080Ti to arrive. Let's start of with all the hardare and what's new: CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X (new, superceeds an i7 6850K) MoBo: AsRoch X470 Taichi (new superceeds a MSI X99A SLI Plus) RAM: 4x8GB HyperX Fury (old) GPU: 2x GTX 1080Ti (one old, one new) PSU: Corsair RM100x (new, superceeds a Seasonic M12II 850W) Drives: Samsung 970 Evo M.2, Crucial MX300, Kingston A400, 4x2TB SSeagate IronWolf (all old) The watercooling is mostly stuff I already had, except for a second pump-res-com
  7. So, after months of not a lot happening, things are starting to move again. Yesterday I received some stuff from EKWB and over the next couple days I should get the rest of my hardware. What hardware? I was thinking about going TRX40 when there was nothing but rumors about the 3000 series Threadripper chips, and when they finally arrived and the prices where final, I quickly noped outta' there. Instead I'll replace my long suffering 6850K with a 3900X and my 1080Ti will get a twin for that sweet, sweet CUDA performance. To top things off, I 3D printed a custom replacement for my O11 dynam
  8. The Heatkiller Tube D5 also has a glass tube, though it is a pretty thick one. There's also a multiport top available for it, or, if you buy it from Watercool directly, you can get it with the top preinstalled at no additional cost.
  9. Yup, that looks weird. I can't tell you what's going on there, but Steam customer support might. I don't know if Steam is keeping logs, but if it does customer support will tell you where you can find the logfile and will ask you to send it to them.
  10. What exactly do you mean by "goes down"? No connection at all or just low speeds or high packet loss? You also have to be careful not to mix up megabytes and megabits, as 250mbit/s is about 30mbyte/s and at least in Steam, you're getting what you're paying for. It's just that Steam is really good at saturating internet connections, leaving other devices or programms starving for bandwidth.
  11. I've been thinking about how to do a dual loop in an O11 with three radiators and tinkered around in CAD. I came up with these loops, please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions on how I could improve it. The GPU loop isn't planned fully yet, but the bottom radiator will be connected to the pump and the side radiator once I get around to modelling the tubes for that. Oh, and here's a revolving view of the whole thing:
  12. So here's the good pictures, little PC for the little brother, bigger PC for me . My favourite thing about the two is how close the cases match in color and the fans are identical, making kind of a theme for systems in our house. And here's a little peak at what's about to become my server. Right now it's just a Define R5 with casters instead of the regular feet, four hard drives and a CPU cooler, but it will get my current CPU and motherboard once I upgrade them later this or early next year. It will become a NAS, a Jupyter Notebook host and ma
  13. My brother and I built his PC like three months ago, here's the specs: Gigabyte Aorus B450I AMD Ryzen 5 2600X EVGA RTX 2070 Gaming Black 16GB G-Skill TridentZ RGB 1TB Intel 660p NVMe SSD Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Black Edition Corsair ML120 and 140 Fans Seasonic M12II Evo 520W PSU Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX TG Because the 2600X really doesn't need all that much cooling and the 212 was more than sufficient,custom water cooling was really unnecessary. But I already had all of the parts lying around and building a loop is always fun, we de
  14. Let's get to replacing the DDC pump with a D5 in my rig. Quick spoiler in the beginning: my flowrate is even worse than what it was before, I guess dual loops exist for a reason. And that will be the next big thing to do next year. On the plus side, the D5 is quieter at 4500rpm than the DDC was at 3000, and the reservoir looks a whole lot better. So let's start by draining the loop, trying to remember in which order I mounted everything around the pump so as to not wreck the seals in the fittings while removing it again. And.... success, the pump is out without an
  15. The most enjoyable videos are the ones that don't (seem to) follow a script, like x somethings one CPU, the stuff that went into the server room, the construction videos about Linus' carcharger or the wireing of the LAN center, etc.
