Hi guys,

Which case can u recommend? (Im currently using the H700i and im not a real fan of it and want so sell it)

Can u recommend a good gpu block for the asus strix 1070Ti?

 

Thanks for any help :)

As far as GPU blocks go, I love my Phanteks block I have for my MSI Gaming X 1070. I chose the Phanteks block because it was the only one I could find that was compatible with the stock back plate. If I went with an EK Block, I would have had to spend additional to get a back plate. Bitspower has a block for your GPU

Define R6 or Meshify C if you like compact but challenging cases.

Well Meshify C is good for air cooling solutions since it's compact and has good air flow with mesh front plate

Which makes it also a good watercooling case. dont forget that watercooling is still ultimately aircooled too.

yup but the problem here is that the small size of the case. for custom loop you'll need some room for it but it's still a really go callenge XDDD and seems like you've already built a custom loop in it :)

Hey there, I am currently in the market for GPU blocks for my ROG Strix 1080Ti, was trying to decide between Phanteks Glacier and Bitspower blocks. Are both compatible with OEM back plate? And how does the bitspower stack up to the likes of Phanteks and EK? I know the Glacier is great quality, and Bitspower makes awesome fittings, but have never heard any reviews for their blocks.

General nerd and I work in corporate finance. Happy to help!

Bitspower definitely knows what they are doing in the water cooling space so I would expect nothing short of top tier performance from their blocks honestly. As far as support for stock back plate, would need to check the blocks product page to ensure it does support it.
