    That doesn't make sense since TVs are 16:9.

    FluffyNuggets got a reaction from MadyTehWolfie in Is a 360 rad enough for CPU and GPU?   
    A radiator the same thickness of a H100 isn't going to cool very good. I put my 60mm thick radiator next to the H100 and it makes the H100 look like a toy. I'm not saying you can't do it but the temps are going to be pretty bad for watercooling.

    FluffyNuggets got a reaction from sidewinder2 in Does 120Hz require more GPU power?   
    Seriously?
     
    You get the same FPS on a 60hz monitor as you do on a 120hz monitor. Not sure where you heard this from but it's dead wrong. Sure you need more power to get more FPS but a 120Hz monitor doesn't affect FPS one bit.

    Now I would never recommend these at full retail (1k), but at $500 they are as cheap as you'll likely see them w/o going used.

    Well anecdotes will be anecdotes, won't they? I've had mine as long as Fluffy and it's great. Best gaming monitor I've ever owned, probably the perfect choice assuming one has the budget for a 1440p rig but can't quite do 4K yet. No deaths, no artifacts, no dead pixels. G-SYNC is awesome.
     
    TN? It's fine. I have it side by side with a PB278Q, admittedly older and PLS, should supposedly have better colours but that'd be splitting hairs, the difference is minimal. Large? It's a 27" monitor, so yeah it's fairly large, but it's the same general dimensions as any other 27" monitor. Actually for the screen alone, it's slimmer than the PB278Q by a decent margin. If I had a size issue, it does have a hefty power brick, but that sits in the darkness behind a desk.
     
    Admittedly, the revised PB279Q does look like a very nice improvement, but it's a ) not on sale right now, this is and b ) the new one will probably come with the massive launch price tag of the old one, not this price which could be less prohibitive.

    UPDATE IV
    So all of my water cooling parts arrived today, I was extremely excited and could barely finish writing my signature for the FedEx guy. It was a rough and stressful journey, but in the end I made it. I present you my first ever custom loop, it looks pretty ugly but it is my first time, some angled fittings would've made it cleaner, but I'll leave that for next time. The pump res combo was a lot bigger that I thought (TWSS), as well as the CPU block, and the GPU block is heavy. The most frustrating part was mounting the top radiator, 0/10 would not do again. I absolutely love the pastel aesthetic of Mayhem's fluid. So here are some pics of the process, well not really, but I took pictures of all of the components and my finished result. I hope you enjoy.
     
     
    Here is my PC completely disassembled before the parts arrived.

    UPDATE III

     
    So I'm super glad to say that I have placed the order on my complete water cooling loop. The grand total was $718.99, not including previous purchases, such as fans and case. I'm not sure when it'll get here but I'll certainly post pictures of the process. The next week or so are going to be long.

    Well good thing it released when it did I put in a RMA for a refund for my Titan X Hydro. I'm not paying $1200 for this knowing the 980Ti is the exact same and overclocks better. Probably just gonna put my 780 Classy back in for now since nobody wants to buy it. Gonna wait for 390x to come out and probably just switch to AMD. I'm so sick of Nvidia and their garbage of screwing over everybody. They managed to screw over 970, 980, and Titan X owners with this series of cards so I'm over it.

    I hated it on the Classified 780 Hydro Copper just because it was red. I love the looks of the Titan X Hydro Copper since the logo is white and the entire block lights up white. Looks sexy!

    It doesn't matter what they do to the card it will still have the exact same voltage restriction. Sure you can flash to a higher voltage BIOS but you can do the exact same thing on a Titan X. It defies logic that a cut down Titan X could ever be faster then an actual Titan X. People seem to think the 980Ti is some magical card that's some how faster then a Titan X. It's not gonna be faster, regardless what you do. Sure you can overclock it to close the gap but you can do the same thing with the Titan X. Anything that card will do the non cut down one will do better.

    Yeah it is. It's not cheap by any means buy its a pretty damn powerful card. Damn near doubles my performance on BF4 compared to a 780 Classified.

    Overclocking it won't result in a Titan X. In any way, the Titan X will remain better.
    1. You can still overclock the Titan X.
    2. There's a lot of stuff diabled on the 980 Ti that prevents it from ever being as fast as the Titan X.
     
    Anyway, the Titan X for a couple hundred more (as you're already spending around $800) would be a better buy, as you'll get a f*cking Titan X and 12GB of VRAM for high resolution gaming.

    For 4k I don't think the 980Ti will cut it. 6GB may seem like enough but I've seen more then that at 1440p with the Titan X. Seen 6GB in Far Cry 4 and a whopping 8GB on Shadow of Mordor. Just imagine games next year and you'll see my point. People can say 12GB is a waste all they want but I'd rather have too much then not enough. I'm so sick of buying a card and then be VRAM bottlenecked less then a year later. My vote is the Titan X and then add a second later when they are dirt cheap.

    Assuming you have the EVBot and watercooling probably. I'm over the whole Classified card garbage. Had a 780 Classified and thing wouldn't overclock very good at all unless running insane voltages with a flashed BIOS. Stock or LN2 BIOS doesn't make the card overclock any better. It's basically a more expensive version of the same card that basically overclocks the same.

    I'm following it closely and haven't set the titan in stone. I think the performance may or may not be better but if they are close I'll side with the bigger stack of ram as the price I believe will be about 850 for the amd. I'm not buying the video card for a few more weeks.
    Also Fluffy I like the color, stands out nicely

    So, where shall I start. Well, this is my most expensive, money-wasting, and ambitious "investment" I will most likely ever do. I will be constructing a full custom water cooling loop. The loop includes a Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming, and an AMD FX-8320 (Yes, I will upgrade to an i7-6700K when it comes out). This will all be housed within my Corsair Vengeance C70 Fractal Design Define S case. Although some modding will be required to fit in the two 360mm radiators I have planned. The total cost of this loop will be $700. I will be saving up my precious paychecks over the course of about 2 and a 1/2 months. So, without further a do, here is the parts list I have planned. Since this is my first loop ever, I may not be the most educated on this topic, but I've done my best to do my research online. If you have any tips, please feel free to drop them, and  I appreciate any feedback.

    It's more of a matter of opinion and preferences.
    Personally I'd go with 1/2 by 3/4 tubing. I like the fact that it stands out so much (larger) and it's the less kinky of the three options, as long as you get a good brand.

    $20 for a pump? Most pump tops cost more than that. Pumps are more likely to be around the $90-$120 price bracket depending on if your getting DDC or D5
