  1. Sadly it isn’t the superclocked edition and it’s only the 1gb variant. Still runs plenty of good games with no issues though. It was my first real GPU before my 750 Ti.
  2. Needed a GPU for my retro gaming/emulation rig. Had this old 650 Ti Boost Edition sitting in on my shelf. It just didn’t fit my builds color scheme. So, I wrapped the s.o.b in ACU camo vinyl. It doesn’t look amazing but, I think it looks pretty cool. Thinking about doing my RX 570 in white vinyl to match my main PC.
  3. This is the Amazon listing for the same cooler. 2nd to last line in description.
  4. Actually it turns out it connects to a 2 pin rgb header on the motherboard. Unfortunately my old lga 775 board doesn’t have one.
  5. I was thinking that but it seemed odd to me. I really don’t want to give up my power LED lol. As strange as that might sound.
  6. I found a Thermaltake cooler in a box of parts I bought at an auction. I wanted to use it in an old Core 2 Quad PC I’m putting together but I’m not sure where to plug the LED power leads. I haven’t come across any like this before. See pic below. Can anyone tell me how I’m supposed to power them? Thanks!
  7. I’m thinking I’ll just mount it normal and spend the $50 on a new HDD instead. Lol. It’s not worth the headache just to see the fans in a budget card.
  8. It’s not for the case in the photo. I have a new case being delivered with the vertical GPU mount.
  9. Just a quick side note. This is how it sits in my current case (side panel is off because of the glare while trying to snap a pic). Do you think there will even be that much difference in thermals given that it sits so close to the PSU shroud as it is? In its current case, it site at 33 degrees when idle and at load about 75 degrees.
  10. I'd have to cut the metal bars between the expansion slots with the Cablemod kit wouldn't I?
  11. I just ordered a Corsair iCUE 4000X RGB case along with Corsairs Vertical GPU kit. Only after placing the order did I consider the thermals of my RX 570 being that the fans are going to be so close to the tempered glass side panel. Is anyone else running the same GPU vertically (or a similar GPU) and what kind of temperature variations have you seen? Would it be more worth my time and money to cancel the vertical mount and invest the $50 into another part? Thanks!
  12. If I had gone with the Thermaltake Core P3 I would have eventually tried my hand at a custom loop. I have a lot of the stuff on hand to set one up, I just have to do a little more homework before I feel confident. I have a tendency to get impatient and rush things and I really don't think that's a good idea with $3000+ PC. Unless they start selling Dumbass insurance somewhere
  13. I think I'm gonna go with the tried and true 212 EVO Black edition for air cooling. I've yet to try custom water cooling and I really don't care for AIO's. I get too paranoid about catastrophic pump failure or something, lol.
  14. When I was looking at the Corsair cases I came across the iCUE 4000X and took a liking to it, lol. It's 1 less HDD than I was looking for but, after checking my motherboard, i only have 4 SATA connections anyway. So it worked out. Added some new toys for my build to go with it too!
  15. That would definitely work but its slightly out of my budget. I should have mentioned that I need to stick as close to $200 USD or less. This is definitely a strong contender now!
