The itch has been scratched. Parts have been ordered. Its happening!

For now, I leave you with some teasing. Full part list will follow soon, but I will be reusing most of my current stuff. No 6 core, quad GPU action here sadly!

@Inik:

Where's the part list ? It's been 11 days!!!

I ragequit when I tried shoving my AX360 into the H440, fucking thing would not fit ANYWHERE. I gave up and returned it. Due to the Cosmos not having a window I skipped my original plan of using purple dye in the distilled to make up for the lack of purple tubing. ANYWAYS, parts list is as follows:

Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II >:(CPU: 3770k @ 4.5GHzMotherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu Black Series (2x 8GB)PSU: Kingwin Lazer 1000W (4 years old and still goin strong)GPU: Asus R9 290X <- Boner material right there.Sound Card: Auzentech ForteOptical Drive: Hah, this isn't 1998.

Storage:2x Corsair Force GS 240GB in RAID0Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB for Photoshop and Lightroom2x Hitachi 5k3000 2TBSeagate LP 2TB (Backup)

Water stuff:CPU Block: EK Supreme HF Full NickelGPU Block: XSPC Razor R9 290/290X with matching backplateRadiator: XSPC AX360 Black (3x 1850RPM Gentle Typhoons)Pump: MCP355 w/ EK res top (Before they stuck the stupid circles all over everything)Fittings: Bitspower matte black 7/16ID 5/8ODTubing: XSPC high-flex tube - white

I'll get some full rig pictures soon. For now this will have to do (with a bit of review material teasing ;) ):

@gingerbee:

wow lp really late on posting those pics eh lol

No kidding. I gave up on it since I completely failed at doing everything I had wanted to. Next build will be proper. This one was crap and was thrown together just well enough to work. Didn't help that the PSU and my pump died in the meantime.

With the Gentle Typhoons running at 7V, idle is only averaging about 6C above ambient. (26C CPU, 28C GPU) Full load on CPU and GPU is topping out at 64C and 46C respectively. GPU is first in the loop so that explains a bit of the higher CPU temps. If I crank them to 12V it's only a couple of degrees so I'd rather have the noise reduction of 7V.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
