  1. Thanks! yeah I saw, that in the drawing, both were marked as outlet ports, but the text put me off a bit. Thank god I don't have to redo the tubing
  2. I just installed my first custom waterloop from Corsair, but I have the following problem: In the first picture, you see the implementation of the pump in my system. In the second one, there is Corsairs manual that says, the front left and the left port are outlets, but then, they say it is mandatory to use the front left port as an outlet. Have I done everything right or is it wrong that way?
  3. There seems to be no possibility to get this adapter to Austria. I wrote them a message, maybe they can do something about it. Maybe there is an alternative, that can be purchased in Central Europe? Are these connectors standardized parts that are easily available? Should not be too hard to make a DIY adapter?
  4. I own a be quiet! 500dx case, which has ARGB, but my motherboard (ASUS Prime X470) has not. Is there a way to use the Commander Pro to control my case RGB? On eBay I saw an adapter cable from PirateDog Tech, but that’s more than 30 euros with shipping. On Amazon I saw an "EZDIY-FAB" adapter cable but they don't ship to Austria. Can I get one of those cables anywhere else or can I make one by my own? What do I need and does it even work?
  5. So, after more than 6 months, I finally did a step in the (hopefully) right direction. I ordered a Hydro X hx303i kit today because of a pretty good discount. I hope Corsair won't disappoint me like NZXT did. Months of waiting with meaningless/fake updates and excuses and not even a single step in the right direction. You buy a product, that is only properly usable with a bugged-out software that freezes your PC multiple times a day and the company knows it since August. Seems like they only care if some Youtuber sets his PC on fire with one of their products. I won't recomm
  6. But I would have to control pump speeds with a second software then right? One software for all would be the best for me I guess. After all the hassle with CAM I am afraid to again use something different to ICUE. A RGB CPU-block/Pump would be nice too.
  7. After all the problems with the CAM software and NZXT's incompetence in fixing a severe bug that is around since August 2020, I finally have enough and would like to change my cooling solution. Currently, my Ryzen 2700x runs at 65°C max (when using Cinebench). I would like to not worsen these numbers. I also want to buy a 5800x or 5900x in the near future, so that should be no problem either. Will a 240mm AIO be too small for these CPUs? Thats the only one I could mount in the top of my case (Bequiet 500dx). The X62 is a 280mm AIO i run in the front. If poss
  8. So it seems like I can't do it without drawing separate frames? I was more likely thinking about something, where I can draw my 2D "parts", set joints and boundary conditions, set the measurements I want to be displayed, press animate and done. So just like a 3D CAD program like Catia could do it but only for the usecase of animating simple 2D stuff with the output of a mp4 or gif at the end of the animation. But I think thats always seems more logical / easy in my head than it is in reality.
  9. For my masters thesis, I did a calculation of a crank drive in Excel. The problem is, that it's pretty hard to imagine the system, just with a static drawing. For showing it to my professor, I would like to make an animation of the crank drive with visible angles, that are getting bigger and smaller along a 360° rotation. Is there a easy, not that time consuming way of doing that? Maybe even in Excel or in an IPad app? It just has to be an animation of a simplified 2D drawing (lines and circles) Doing an animation in Catia and capturing it with OBS is a solution, but that
  10. Is there a way to monitor the temperatures of my CPU/GPU via an IOS app that can alarm me when for example the GPU temps get higher than x°C? I know there is Team Viewer etc. but I am looking for something less complicated. Over the easter holidays I would like to keep my PC on when leaving the dorm and going home.
  11. How much is it? I think you shouldn't buy a new PC you didn't want in the first place, just to build a new system as soon as the new hardware is available, especially if you have a limited budget. It is also not really environmental friendly. Upgrading the pre-built system will most likely end in just building a new one. The mainboard is pretty cheap. I think the PSU won't be the best either so you will have to change that when buying a new GPU. Then, higher RAM speeds are suggested so you change that etc. etc. etc. Also...why is there RTX in the Specs?
  12. Some Youtubers should address that problem. Guess there won't be a solution as long as it is not a public topic. I don't have high memory usage, but the last freeze was immediately after turning on the PC (only cam was running).
  13. After all the back and forth with CAM support, I got an email today saying something like: "thank you for your files we hope you get a working program soon". I think that was it. I'll wait a few weeks. If they don't fix it I will probably go Corsair or whatever comes to my mind. I'm still trying to figure out what may cause the freezes. I got all freezes but one when hearing music or watching videos. Music freezes: Spotify and one time a webplayer Video freezes: Youtube, Netflix and uni recordings located on one of my drives All of them have aud
  14. How? When I exit CAM, only the RGB stays but the fans turn up and go in standard mode.
