  1. I am looking to pick up a 3080 as soon as the stock becomes reasonable again. In the meantime I would like to upgrade my monitor to something more fitting for my eventual 3080. I am currently running an Acer Predator XB241H which is a 1080P 144hz GSync monitor. As well as a secondary monitor which is just a 1080p asus IPS monitor to put secondary stuff on while gaming. I mostly play competitive FPS games like Siege and Overwatch so I still want something capable of high refresh rate. Though I do occasionally play more sightseeing games that would benefit from better graphics q
  2. Just started my folding machine up again for the first time in a month or two to get it ready for this. The last time I was folding was earlier in this pandemic when there were huge issues getting work units for GPU. This seems like it is still an issue as only one of my GPU's has picked up a work unit. Are there any good ways around this, particularly those that are automated. The method I use at the moment is just occasionally checking to see if it is waiting then pausing and restarting the GPU.
  3. This could very likely be the reason it is not posting. I had a quick look at their site which says it is compatible with ECC memory but only unbuffered. As the memory modules you have installed are registered memory which is not unbuffered. I would recommend getting a hold of compatible memory preferably those listed on the memory support list on gigabytes website and giving those a try.
  4. Only other thing I could think of to try would be turn the system off and take out the gpu. Plug the monitor into the motherboard and power it up to see if you get any output. if that fails it sounds like a faulty motherboard to me so hopefully the computer shop can confirm on Monday.
  5. Have you tried plugging the monitor into the motherboard and see if you get video there. I have had a couple motherboards where they won’t output via a gpu without going into the bios and changing a setting.
  6. EDIT: I see someone else posted a nice diagram and equivalent explanation before I was able to type this out so feel free to disregard this. This is 100% incorrect. As many others in this thread have pointed out it is just an example of parallel flow. Each gpu will get half the flow of water. Lets assume the water is coming in from the top right of the gpus though it doesn't really matter. What happens is in that inlet the water can either go down through the gpu bloc or straight through the tube into the next gpu block. As water is looking for the path of least resista
  7. Thanks for the tip, had a look at performance-pcs and with postage it is pretty much on par with the EK slim rads even after accounting for currency conversion. Cheers, I will double check my measurements and see if I can fit the larger rads. Would a thicker radiator from hardware labs be better than one from ek if i can fit a larger rad?
  8. Good call I totally forgot those. I will add a t-intersection and a ball valve to the list.
  9. Would like to get thicker rads but there is not a lot of space in the case so not sure if they would fit.
  10. Thanks for the advice I will try and track down a 240 and 360 gts but unfortunately I am located in Australia and availability is very limited.
  11. The full rundown of the system this will be cooling is in my profile but here are the key components: I9-9900KS Maximus XI Hero WIFI - Black ops 4 edition Case: Cooler master MB530P GPU: Currently a 2070 Super but I don't think I will order the loop till the 3000 series nvidia GPU's release as I plan on upgrading to one of those. I do Intend to include the 3000 series card in the loop, probably either 3070 or 3080 I ran the EK configurator and am planning to get as many of the part as possible from EK to simplify compatability and orders
  12. Very helpful thanks. Yeah the cpu should all core turbo as high as 5Ghz so it should be within warranty.
  13. Yeah I will definitely look into a better cooler, want to do a full custom loop in the case at some point. Looking to see if this is expected performance for this kind of cooling. I probably should have mentioned but I am not looking to overclock I am looking to see if the out of the box performance is as expected or if I am handicapping it with a setting or something somewhere. Ah thanks maybe I am just paranoid for nothing
  14. I have recently picked up an i9-9900KS and it doesn't seem to be performing as well as I would expect. I am running an Asus Maximus XI Hero (black ops 4 edition) and it is being cooled by a Cooler Master ML240R. With multi core enhancement enhancement disabled or set to Auto I am getting around 4600-4700 in Cinebench R20 and the clock speed is around 4.7Ghz-5Ghz for about 10 seconds then drops down to 4.5Ghz on all cores. With multi core enchancement enabled it stays at 4.8Ghz for the whole test and gets a score of between 4800-4900. From what I have seen online peopl
