[Official] Gigabyte GA-990FXA-Series Owners Thread/Club - Page 67

post #661 of 12377
I have a question. I'm about to get in some water cooling parts from a new sponsor. The first is the XSPC Rasa 750 RS360. The other piece of the kit is a Danger Den GTX 560 water block. Look at my signature for system specs. My question is which order should my loop go in? Should I go from the Rad to the CPU first or to the GPU first? I know that my hardware isn't particularly high end but I'm not going to turn down free stuff. This is also so that I can prove to myself and my sponsor that I'm able to build a custom loop. This is my first "plunge" into custom water cooling. Please forgive the pun.

Wrong thread. This should be in the Water Cooling section

Sorry about that. I re-posted it where it belongs so it can be ignored or removed.

You're more likely to get answers in that thread

Well it's sort of my work that's sponsoring me. My boss has been fairly impressed with my work and wants to see if I can install a custom loop.

Good luck, got a nice board if you do your colors right.

I'm going with UV green tubing to go with the case. I think it should look pretty good once I've got it all installed.

Worth the jump? I want one but not sure if its worth the money. 2 months ago I bought my 890FX. And I am forced to look at these every day. Is it worth grabbing a 990 for a bulldozer chip or should I just use my 890?

Oh and there's no vdroop on the latest UD3s. I forgot to say that.
Hi to all!
About Vdroop... There is no vdroop on the latest BIOSes or on the latest revisions of UD3s?
I'm very interested in this Mobo, but the voltage fluctuations stop me buying it...
