  1. Can’t say it’s something to worry about not knowing the exact cause. But looks like a greasy thumb smudge, normal behavior for certain metals. Leave it be or clean it.
  2. I think they mean the g1/4 plug that have silver in them. You just put in an empty spot. Instead of putting the coil in the res.
  3. I prefer the finish of the alpha stuff. And normally having more ports. But I also prefer thicker stuff. Not happy with my Corsair/Bitspower thin rads. But the price reflects that.
  4. Depends on the card. Most do get hot. Especially with a poor design. I had two identical cards, one on air and one on water. Using a sealed backplate like an ek version was very hot. 70-80c A perforated one like evga sat around 60c. The cards have vram on the back too. Contributes to a lot more heat. But all of my cards get hot on the back but that depends on how hot they get as well. Tend to keep mine no hotter than 45c ever. And I keep my builds designed with airflow for all the mobo components anyway, so everything tends to stay cool.
  5. I put the bios settings on the lowest that can be. Then I use the mobo software to make more profiles. As I like to have one for gaming as well. So the fans don’t ramp up at all while using the pc for everything else.
  6. Assuming you know how to set it up sure. That is the purpose of a fan header.
  7. Assuming you don’t have a splitter or cpu opt header just use a fan header.
  8. Jayz2cents already did a video showing this on YouTube.
  9. That’s on you. When I first made computers I didn’t do any customs loops. But I don’t own a pc today that doesn’t have a custom loop. I hate hearing fans, especially little ones on gpu’s. Id only wait if you plan on keeping the same hardware long term.
  10. Seems like a simple choice. If you aren’t the type to do it yourself and have the money to waste, pay someone. Id rather waste the money and do it myself. $300 goes along ways in parts. Not like you can break something. Put the blocks on correctly, don’t use tap water and you’ll be fine. At most get one of those fancy pressure testers.
  11. Should make an actual post for the issue with a full list of the pc components. As well as the usage of each component and speeds they are running at.
  12. Just set the one card to mine, that simple. Then game. Dont need to do anything special. Id flash it though to make it really worth it.
  13. The card wants more, thats why theres a warning. Thus if the limit wasnt set it would use what it wants, what it needs. Its running out.
