Kind of 'drunk' smilies. Unintentional though. (:

I think they have to dance a little bit because it requires both the CPU and board (chipset) to enable PCI 3.0, so no one one wants to simply claim that they have a 3.0 solution. The new Asrock board I'm getting says it 'supports' PCI 3.0 for enabled processors. I think Intel is doing the same thing.

It's weird because if you look at the i7-3770 series, Intel says it supports 3.0. It really makes it confusing to someone who is trying to upgrade...

Oh, almost forgot, is there any chance that the dye you're using will come off and contaminate the liquid?

I was wondering the same thing! As a teenager, I used to dye my jeans....man did I get yelled at by my sisters when that pair of jeans found itself with the " light color " load on laundry day....tongue.gif

Well.....I've never actually done it before, so I guess i can't answer for sure. But even if some dye was released into the water once you have your loop in place, I don't think it would harm anything. I mean...some people are putting dye directly into their coolant to TRY and color it. And these dyes don't adhere to metal. Or at least most metal. My stainless steel pots and aluminum pots I'm using for the dye baths wipe clean with no effort. I'll be the guinea pig and try it.

Brave man, being the guinea pig with 7 rads, 150 fittings and lots of waterblocks. Maybe you could already set up a small trial loop with just a reservoir, pump, rad, the cheapest block and a bit of tube and some fittings? I'd hate to see anything go wrong with all your cooling hardware in one move...

I was just thinking the same thing. I've heard that dye gunks up water blocks

Yeah, seen some pretty amazing pictures of blocks with junk in them. But for every story you hear like that, there are also people who say they have been running dye in their loop for 3 years without issue. Tough to know what to believe. I guess as long as the dye doesn't cause any corrosion....its easy enough to clean your blocks every now and then.

And for routine upgraders, all of the blocks will probably be replaced within three years or so anyway. Flash forward in your mind with me (dream sequence begins....soft music....hazy vision).....in three years, the 680 GTX will be a distant memory of a time when we SLI'd fewer than 10 cards together, and they still consumed more than 30 watts. The X79 chipset and the boards that have it will be fondly remembered as a quaint old fashioned time back when boards had fewer than 200 PCI lanes. Those LGA 2011 CPU's will be a beloved memory of a time when stock speeds were still less than 8 GHz and the silicon used was more than 5 nanometers. And of course all of the water blocks that we used for these items will remind us of a time when blocks were made of something other than adamantium.

It will be time for an upgrade. smile.gif
