  1. Long over-do update. I tried the thread paste, gave it like a week to perhaps solidify, it never did, and I was still having leaks. So, before trying JB Weld, I attempted one more thing that I know works at sealing things pretty well - JB Weld's silicone. Been using the stuff to lightly reseal CPUs that I have delidded after I had repasted them. Gave it about a day or two to dry, and then tested again, and success! There wasn't a leak anymore from between the fittings. For the past week, water with loop cleaner has been in the temporary loop, and no leaks so far. This s
  2. I do have JB weld on hand, but I don't wish to do that. Too extreme. As for thread paste, I'm guessing this would do, no? https://www.oatey.com/products/oatey-great-white-pipe-joint-compound-with-ptfe--275767012
  3. Yes, but of course. First tested with the Leak-tester, noticed there was a leak somewhere, filled the loop up with a little water to see where it was leaking from, took it apart, applied some pipe tape, didn't work, applied some more, and still nothing. Hence, why I'm here.
  4. Hello, I have a very basic problem (the title says it all): I have two fittings that aren't exactly playing well together. I bought this old Socket A/478-compatible CPU water block in the hopes of eventually doing some retro-overclocking-on-water, but the issue with it is that it used a rather non-standard fitting and tube diameter. Thankfully, I found a compression fitting from Amazon that works with the tubing that the waterblock uses and then converts to a 1/4" BSPP male thread (which is the same as G1/4" AFAIK). I currently have it set up so that I go from that spec
  5. 'Twas not to be. First, it wasn't that one wire came apart from the Dupont connector, both ends did (since one end came loose, so did the other end). This required me to shove out the dupont connector from the PCIe power plastic housing, only to then find out that there's no easy way to undo the inner bending of the Dupont connector to reattach the two ends of the wire together back to it. Soldering seemed out of the question. At this point, I think it's a lost-cause unless I can find equally big Dupont connectors, the size of which I don't personally have, and I'm
  6. I figured as much, but just want to be sure. Looks I'm covered, too: Guess this is easier than I thought.
  7. Hello, I have a quick question. A few months ago, I OCed my Ryzen 5 3600 on my Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero with a Noctua NH-D15 and a kit of G.skill Trident Neo Z 3600Mhz (XMP-enabled in BIOS), and got what I thought was a respectable 4.1GHz/4.05GHz (CCX 0/CCX 1) overclock at around 1.33V Vcore, being IIRC 6-hours stable in Prime 95 Small FFTs, OCCT, and AIDA64 (the later 2 just no-where near as demanding as the first test, obviously, but I just test with various torture tests just in case), peaking in the mid-80s Celsius in P95. I was able to raise my clocks to 4.15GHz/4.075GHz,
  8. This is an interesting one. So, recently, I pulled my test PSU (Corsair CX550 that I bought, eh, 2-ish years ago?) off of my storage rack and I noticed this: It appears that *somehow* (I guess from the hundreds of times I have moved this PSU around) that the +2-pin part of the 6+2-pin connector partially disconnected itself from the 6-pin. Not only now am I down a 8-pin, I can't safely use the 6-pin part anymore. I wanna fix it. I have soldering tools if required.. But I need some advice to see if it's even possible to safely fix this. If not, I'll just
  9. @Jarsky Yeah, those first four brackets won't work - they all have either a VGA or DVI cut-out, and rely on those ports for attaching themselves to the card. As for the last one, even if I were to cut out port holes (which I won't do), the screw arms are not at the right lengths by the looks of it to work. So, sadly, nope. Still at square one.
  10. The title says it all. I bought an MSI GeForce GT 1030 2G LP OC off of Newegg, refurbished, assuming that it would come with a low-profile bracket so that I could use it in a SFF Dell PC that I'm trying to flip, and no sooner did I open the box that my assumption, my expectation was shown to be completely wrong. The card came without a low-profile bracket! Not only at, but it appears that no one from one side of the Pacific to the other sells a LP bracket for this card, given its ports (no VGA or DVI, meaning the bracket screws through the card's PCB). So, before I rip out my hair comple
  11. I looked at that exact post. Yeah, no, those are a no-go. I am hoping for a "yes, there exists such a switch" answer from someone, but I'm trying not to get my hopes too high.
  12. I feel like this question has been asked before. In fact, I know some slight variation of this question has been asked when doing some research before typing up this post. But, I seek to ask the same question again, in late 2019. The question is, are there any cheap yet high-quality 2-PC/1-monitor switches (not KVMs - I don't need the USB/audio ports, as I already have that covered) capable of 1440p @ 144Hz? I have a Dell S2417DG monitor, a nice TN panel with Gsync support, 1440p resolution at 144Hz, and low response times (according to the marketing). And, as far as I can tell, for a TN, t
  13. @farmernr An update: First, I implemented the settings as listed in that Reddit post, and, from what I can tell, everything is basically the same. 98 can access the NAS via FTP, under XP I actually can map the NAS as a network drive (didn't know that before) and works as expected, and under Vista and 10, no issues (for Vista I did have to disconnect and reconnect, but besides that no issue). As for whether that solved the problem of detected the NAS over-the-network on a machine without SMB1 support enabled, on my Windows 10 laptop, I "removed" SMB1 support, searched the network, an
  14. @farmernr1 My apologizes. I wasn't clear when it came to the older systems. 98SE AFAIK is unable to connect to my NAS via SMB, and same with XP, so for those machines, I just have them access my server via FTP, although I barely access the server via FTP under 98, since IE6's abilities at saving content off of my FTP is bad. Also, I didn't provide this information to begin with, but when I first set up my NAS, I was using Windows 10, and no other machines with older OSes were on. I doubt that OMV even has the capabilities of setting SMB protocol settings based on what it sees on the net
