Yeah, we are old......which has given us the wisdom to never use CLCs voluntarily. tongue.gif

Haha well I'm not old, I just meant my taste in cooling equipment tongue.gif.

While I do love the hard tubing builds I see, there's something about a big tower cooler that makes me smile smile.gif. Plus the maintenance is pretty simple biggrin.gif.

I have to admit, I have a custom loop in an Evolv ATX. I recently downsized the loop to simplify maintenance and get a cleaner look. I have a GTX 1070 and block on the way, and I can say without hesitation that block will be the last I spend on liquid cooling unless the market drastically changes. The temp difference is no way worth the cost to me, even with most of my loop being evaluation samples. Also, since i don't OC my GPU, and most of my computing being CPU intensive, rather than GPU intensive, my setup with the R1, Dark Rock Pro 3, NH-D15, Tc14PE, etc is actually quieter.

Haha and especially so with how the new GPUs power and heat are significantly reduced.

So true especially last several generations by Intel and nVidia have greatly reduced power consumption. Yet you still see people putting 1500 watt PSUs in systems that don't draw more than 500 watts. Makes you wonder why they bother.

I use an Evga G2 1300w with my OC'd 6700k and single 980 Ti.

By my estimates I should be pulling around 1100w at 100% load.

Just kidding thumb.gif

I came from a trifire 7950 setup so my PSU just followed me to my new build.

Hardware
Gigabyte G1 Gaming 7 Z170 Motherboard - Intel i7 6700k @ 4.7Ghz (1.38v) - G.Skill Trident Z 3400Mhz DDR4 - Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti @1.093v 2126/12.2Ghz - Dual Samsung 500Gb SSD's - Evga G2 1300w PSU - Phanteks Enthoo Primo

lol yeah that makes sense, can't see getting rid of it. Just amazes me sometimes the builds I see with 1200 to 1500 watt PSU's. Oh well to each his own.

I kinda fall into that category redface.gif.

I had a GTX 780 I bought brand new not long after they released and was so excited to get a second and then BIOS mod it so that it drew all that glorious power.....and then it died on me twice frown.gif.

EVGA replaced it with a GTX970 and I added another one on top not long ago....I draw maybe 600w at load with max power target. So yeah...I keep the PSU because it followed me and it's super efficient tongue.gif.
