  1. I have been considering trying to mod the RGB for my Gigabyte 2080 Super and connecting it to the RGB of my Asus motherboard in order to sync the RGB but unsure of how to do it or even if its possible to do. If someone here has experience doing so I would appreciate their insights and help, thanks.
  2. Mod went fine. Simply created a small notch to run the power and rgb wires through and plugged it in and everything is working and it looks awesome as the PSU sits on its side with the fan facing the case window.
  3. I would not do it and you are talking to someone that used nothing but ATI for years until I picked up this 2080 super for my current system. Why did I switch? Because ATI still cannot get its driver act together and their products performance still lags behind though with these new cards it finally shows atleast some potential.
  4. Personally I would not risk it and would rather pay a little more to buy it directly from a company I can trust like newegg.
  5. Well I was planning on simply running the fan constantly when I am on the computer along with my other fans all of which are Sickelflow fans by Cooler Master as my PC is powered off when I am not using it.
  6. Should it not be a straight forward mod though? After all I am not attempting to fix, remove or change any of the components of the PSU itself other than the fan which plugs into a fan port inside the PSU.
  7. I know will have to splice if I connect it to the PSU as the PSU is only two wires and the fan is a 4 wire one but the question is do I have to do it or can I power the fan externally instead?
  8. Thinking about replacing the fan in a Seasonic PSU I picked up with a RGB fan and am wondering if I have to mod the fan so it can connect to the PSU fan port or can I simply mod it to connect directly up to a fan header on my motherboard?
  9. Which is odd as I read somewhere that Seasonic supposedly made the Phantek PSUs and Seasonic has a decent rep.
  10. Its an option within the Asus RGB control software so I assume its probably for a new generation of ARGB.
  11. Are there any on the market yet? I ask as I just switched to a B550 board from Asus with Gen2 ARGB.
  12. A few months ago Linus did a video about a server I believe from some company that used a very long round riser cable for the GPUs so wondering if anyone knows if there is a company that actually makes those or if more than likely they had them custom made?
  13. Both Corsair and EKWB make full kits but be prepared to shell out some bucks for them.
  14. Well you might want to consider the B550 motherboard I linked as well as the PSU if you want to save some cash as now that the B550 boards are out you are not limited to the x570 boards.
  15. Well you can do some overclocking on air if you get a DH15 from Noctua and the performance is not that big of a difference. Now if you really want to try max overlocking water is a good choice but then you are usually talking a custom loop job and those are according to Linus both expensive and more maintenance intensive which is why I went with air cooling for my 3900x. On the other hand if you want to overclock and want the cleaner look an AIO can provide then by all means go for it.
