  1. I generally have no issues with "homages", "copies/clones" and to be honest even fakes only really bother me when people try and sell them as the real deal- but that Heimdallr is definitely a clone of the Seamaster 300m. Pretty much every design aspect, from the case and lug design to the bezel shape, fonts used, the characteristic sword hands, date location and markings, is identical or extremely similar. The only fundamental difference other than the company branding is the lack of the Omega trademarked "wave" markings on the dial. None of this precludes it from being a decent w
  2. This. Decent Nappa leather is a beautiful thing but sadly it's either a hilariously expensive option or reserved solely for flagships these days. I'm a big fan of alcantara seats.
  3. Entertaining totally unenforceable legislation when there are far bigger issues at hand deserving of attention? Of course.
  4. ViewSonic Elite XG270QG would be my suggestion. 1440, 165Hz, 1ms IPS with a great quality panel and far more subtle than most gaming monitors.
  5. This was always an issue with the non-XL dynamic; support for horizontal GPUs, especially water blocked ones, was actually quite poor.
  6. I'd get two 4-pin 2-way splitters. One for the front fans, one for the CPU fans. Plug CPU into the CPU header and the front into the header by the 24 pin. Connect rear fan to the header by the rear IO. You might need to manually set the 24 pin and rear header to PWM mode from DC in the BIOS. I'd not bother with the top fan at all.
  7. This would depend how fast you want to run the fans really. If you want to use iPPC's, be prepared for some noise and you really want to go with high fin density to take advantage of them. But depending on what you're cooling, a thinner low FPI radiator and some ultra quiet sub-1000RPM fan will probably provide all the performance you need. With a 420 unless you're doing a full CPU+GPU loop then there's little to no need for high RPM fans as you'll get basically the same performance from something slim and silent. A thick high-FPI radiator may well be significantly outperformed by
  8. Yeah super neat. There's a lot of common misconceptions about it being exceptionally hard but the best way of thinking about it is steel strength with little-bit-more-than-aluminium weight. Absolute nightmare to work with for most people, though, unless you're able to do melting and casting or forging inside a vacuum. Otherwise you introduce all sorts of impurities which can cause things like cracking and eventual failure of stressed parts. Multiple air disasters have been caused by the failure of things like titanium fan disks or blades within engines due to microscopic impuritie
  9. You could just buy a 420mm AIO, like the Arctic Liquid Freezer 420 or Alphacool Eisbaer.
  10. It's worth noting that per volume Titanium isn't actually harder than steel, but it's much harder per mass which is why it's so prized in aerospace and lightweight applications. I can also vouch for the fact that titanium rings can be removed with standard ring cutters as I had exactly this happen to me when I was hospitalised- it's generally things like tungsten carbide they need to use special tools for.
  11. XC5 or 7 for LGA1200 XC7 or 9 for LGA2011
  12. Odds are you broke it and he didn't replace it. I wouldn't either if I was being slandered on the internet by someone I was doing a solid for.
  13. IIRC these were used for long-distance, high-speed bulk transport for some of the French newspaper outlets. Very odd.
  14. The 5.2 V10 is 84.5mm bore, 92.8mm stroke, with a 90mm cylinder spacing shared with the Audi V10 on which it is based. Alloy block, naturally aspirated. Both the 2.0 and 2.5 TFSI are 82.5x98.2mm bore and stroke, with 88mm cylinder spacing. Both are cast iron block and forced induction using BorgWarner turbos that are very similar. The 2.5 TFSI is not derived from either the Lamborghini (5.0 indirect injection) or Audi/Lamborghini (5.2 direct injection) engines; it's derived from the US/MENA market N/A 2.5 5 cylinder EA855 which was discontinued in about 2015, cro
  15. They're really just the EA888 4 pot with an extra cylinder. Great engines, though. Just wish they offered one in something rear biased rather than Haldex (ick)
