  1. thanks folks. I completely new to this but i get it now---any soft tube fittings for 1/2 ID and 3/4 OD will work--for some reason i thought ekwb was implying that ONLY their compression fittings would work. Ive learned since that this is clearly not the case. Thanks all
  2. Hey! Does anyone have any recommendations for compression fittings that would work for rubber tubing (1'2" id and 3/4" od)? The type that EKWB recommends dont seem to be being produced any more and Im looking for alternatives. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like many people use rubber tubing so its hard to get confirmation on compatibility. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! Thanks!!!
  3. Hey Folks, I have been setting up a water loop. Plan was to have a second radiator on the bottom of the case (I have an Enthoo elite, and Ive seen a lot of people using this setup). Ive realized though, that this might make the drain valve placement difficult. How are you supposed to drain a system when the radiator--with the ports facing upwards (it has to), is the bottom of the loop? Thanks in advance for any tips.
  4. Hugely helpful--thank you! So something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087G9LP3Y/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B087G9LP3Y&pd_rd_w=00Gs2&pf_rd_p=7d37a48b-2b1a-4373-8c1a-bdcc5da66be9&pd_rd_wg=ETFuL&pf_rd_r=BA4ZSGTABRAC9T2PPC35&pd_rd_r=13f020f2-5cca-4d14-bb6e-0d5e26bf110f&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExTzZSWk44NkdGRFQwJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzM3ODY4M05NR0dRUTRWSTUxVSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMjc0MjkzRkdGNUpNOU9ISzhNJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==#customerReviews Combined with this?
  5. Hey folks, Kind of a noob question. I have a vfx workstation that I am building. It is VERY large (enthoo elite). Due to space constraints I am seriously considering just putting the tower in another room. Anybody ever done something like this--as in the computer in one room and displays elsewhere? Only options I can think of are something like a zero client, or really long extensions cables. We have used zero clients at work without issue, and they can handle up to three hdmi or displayport displays, but I am having trouble understanding how they are configured---tuto
  6. Apologies but a bit confused on this. A 10A outlet should only be 1200W right? And this should only be running at 80%? 240v to 30 Amp would definitely cover an overclocked cpu and 2-3gpus. To your second point, my calculations seem high then, but are they that off really? Charts as they are would seem to imply even with a second gpu, I wouldnt go over 1000W. However they dont indicate overclocked gpus though. Is a 1600W power supply really enough for 1 cpu and two overclocked gpus? Ive never even heard of undervolting, hugely informative. Just doing so
  7. Good point. Perhaps I just romanticized the performance gains of watercooling, having never really done it before. Is watercooling of any real benefit if you are not overclocking?
  8. Well i pulled it from here? https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-ryzen-threadripper-3970x-review,5.html I figured this was fairly reliable?
  9. thank you both. I will be using this pc for professional purposes as a vfx artist. and thats a good point on the addition of a second line. I know that fridges and ac units often run on 40 Amp outlets. Perhaps thats the way to go.
  10. Hey folks, A few things have been really confusing me about my own computer build. Its not the mathematics of the power consumption, its the reality of being able to actually overclock a cpu and 2-3 gpus, and not burn my entire house down lol. Im building my own pc, trying to be really careful with the specs, research on power consumption, overclocking, etc, and Im really confused as to how other people are getting away with overclocking/mining pcs (4 gpus??), considering the reality of power consumption with the newest cpus and gpus, and standar
  11. Hey folks, Question . VFX artist. Running Houdini and Nuke mostly. I just installed a new optane 905P ssd in my machine. Im trying to understand the best way to optimize it, without reinstalling my entire operating system on it. Ive been told when you run a program, the only drive that matters is the drive that work is actually being done on. Does this mean it doesnt matter that much where the program is installed? If that's the case, I can keep the program installed on my current ssd, and then have my files on the optane drive, and still reap the full benefits of optane. H
  12. Hey folks, question about how your boot drive and your storage system work together, specifically as it pertains to VFX work and true work speed. Ive heard a lot about really impressive standards on ssds for sequential read write nowadays: GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD 2TB M.2 2280 for example: 5000 MB/s......5 GB/s......40 Gb/s. ---that speed is equivalent to a thunderbolt 3 max speed--obviously the thunderbolt 3 is dependent on the drive attached but you get the idea. Its a really impressive read write if you can get it consistently, However, its been noted th
  13. gotcha. when people work off a network then are they always taking a performance hit?
