    Well you can go really ghetto way using cable ties, I done it before (different mobo and cpu) and it worked quite well.

    Well that’s definitely one of the options, other much simpler would be to secure it properly when they shipping prebuild systems

    So I’ve been seeing quite few of this new CV series psu’s around in shops now, anyone know the difference between CX and CV ?? I couldn’t find any proper reviews about them yet and I know we have few experts in here.

    Worse cooling can reduce performance by lowering power you can let the GPU draw without overheating, but that's in the realm of 5-10%.

    Whiro got a reaction from Keaiser in Any Thoughs on MSI 2070 SUPER VENTUS OC?   
    That’s not entirely true. If the card runs hotter it’ll thermal throttle and not boost as high as card with better cooling solution.

    Whiro reacted to W-L in Questions on Custom Water Loop   
    For the pump if it is a PWM unit you must connect the molex/sata for power and the 4 pin to the motherboard or Commander Pro for speed control. I would recommend to connect to the CPU header as it will provide feedback if the pump were to die.

    Whiro reacted to Tristerin in Correct fittings for 10/13 flexible tubing?   
    I use the cheapest nickel plated barb fittings I can find on ebay ($3 for 6 or so), and the OD of my barb I look to be slightly larger than the ID of the tubing I choose (Ive gone as big on the barb as the OD on the tubing).  I then use black small zip ties to secure - never had a leak yet and have 3 loops running this way.  Just tossing this in here as loops can be pretty expensive but there ARE other options.
