Even FrozenCPU can see the writing on the wall and is painting rads.

Would love to put the whole PSU discussion to bed and not jack Stren's log here. Those that know, save. Those that don't, waste. I recall a poll a few years back on OCN about average age of OCN members. Let me just say, in my humble opinion, that you will never be able to convince a 21-25 year old american male that he doesn't need a 1500W power supply because, god dammit, his rig is special. biggrin.gif

I agree. I just saw too many people recommending a 650 watt psu for cfx 6950s/70s.

My rig pulls like 300W (maybe a tad over) but I didn't want to buy a 400W PSU, so I got a 500W one that could probably almost run 7870's in crossfire (it's really a 550W unit afaik).
So that kind of "overkill" I encourage, but the dude in the thread in question was getting 2 680's, even with all the stuff he wouldn't have needed anything over 650W, so even 750W or 850W would have been a big overkill.
Let's just say that I understand your point of view but I do not agree with it, at least not completely.

Agreed. But, enough psu talk, we've derailed this build log so bad, sorry stren.

So are you planning to use your results from your CPU water block testing in this build or sticking with what you have regardless?

Surprised that frozen aren't powder coating them. Spray paint can be so easily scratched if you don't do it right (or do enough layers and clear coats).

DT were kind enough to sponsor the build from early on so I'll be using the snipers or the 5Noz wink.gif Plus I need two blocks, and I have two of each of those, the other blocks I only have one of each. Hopefully the sniper will win overall though and then I still have the best block thumb.gif I like to support the independent engineer running a startup in his garage too (maybe cause that's basically what I am haha) rolleyes.gif

I was going to move to chrome as I have to use some bitspower fittings in there and I wanted to match. However now that BP are doing the white fittings I can keep on that theme! Can't take the photos yet - I need to fix the clear coat on the end of the radiator first as well as paint the screw heads to match smile.gif

Now if only Koolance released white versions of the QDCs thumb.gif

lol yeah, I just realized that this psu talk is pretty much the same as the talk in all the other threads: pointless biggrin.gif

I hope that the sniper wins, I was going to vote sniper but accidentally voted 5noz doh.gif
The new white bitspower fittings are the best looking ones out there imo after the monsoon rotaries, with Enzo coming as 3rd. Shame that it would be pretty hard to paint the QDCs...
