Those coarse PU sponges are no filter, there will be no blockage using them. I think they are only intended to remove big bubbles and vortices in cylindrical reservoirs.
wow!
I will run DI right after tap water or perhaps just DI, and also flush again pt2, otherwise it will be soapy!Thanks a lot! I think I'll go with the EK coolant and keep an eye on the acrylic cpu block (I always do every now and then).And those rads... they keep on dropping debris no matter how many times you flush them (pt1, boiled distilled, tap water...) and that gets deposited in my cpu block. It doesn't have any measurable impact on performance (or so I think), but I...
@Mayhem I'm about to perform my yearly maintenance. Here's what I'll do: · Drain · Visual inspection and brush cleaning of gpu and cpu blocks · (reassemble) · pressure test · run the loop with an external pump and water filter (with tap water) to clean all possible remaining particles · Mayhems Blitz pt 2 (pt 1 was applied 1-2 years ago) Would you alter the order? I was going to use a bottle of EK EVO clear coolant I have around, but I see that it was manufactured almost...
Hell no, I remember VR kits ads in computer magazines circa 1995, plus tutorials on how to build yourself a headset. 22 years ago, when accelerated graphics were being introduced.
2500k, gigabyte z68ap, msi 380 2gb here. Windows 7 and 17.4.1 (or 2) running fine (Fallout 4 and War Thunder).
I'm running the CPU @ stock clocks... lolI'll try again the 125 strap some day, thanks!!!
I think that's the same kit I have, but I've only been able to run at 2666. Anything higher and the motherboard will use the 125 strap, which doesn't boot (5820k here)

First of all: those caps are in the way, look, there's a crushed one (top row, 3rd from the left)! Compare the clearance of your socket with my picture below. Is that a Gigabyte Z68X-UD5? EK says it should be compatible with your water block...TIM spread does not look good at all. You're even using too much tim, and the waterblock gets only a tiny fraction of it. Here's how it should look like (Supremacy + 3570K):And here's a view from the PCIe slots (warped...
