I totally understand what you mean on the gift thing, I'd see it the same way.
yeah i actually threw my
in the thread that talked about that review on here. makes me sad man, but i firmly believe that when or if evga releases a bios update for the board, it will do so much better. it has a ton of potential.

I love the pump/res combo. It's super clean and fits well (aesthetically and spatially
) with everything else in the build.
Quick question: how do you like the rheostat? How did you hook up all those fans to just 3 knobs? One of the hardest things to deal with on these small builds is cooling (duh)... specifically fans as the tiny mobos have limited fan headers.
Oh, one more thing... happy birthday!
ah you have no idea how good it feels to hear all this praise come from ya! haha thanks man i really appreciate it, and im really glad you like the rig. i hope i can impress you again when i finish this thing! i am thinking about whether i should go for MOTM or not. i dont think this build has enough momentum behind it like yours did lol.
oh man the pump/res combo really saved me actually. it was literally the only one i could find for a d5 that had inlet and outlet on the sides. it was the only way it'd work right.
and about the rheostat.. i actually like it a lot. it handles everything no problem at all, and it's well built; durable and doesn't feel cheap.
and i made my own 3 pin fan connector splitters with left over parts i've had collected over the years, when i release another update i'll make sure to get a shot of the ridiculous splitter i made lol it'll make you laugh. but it works! it's compact which i needed it to be, which is why it'll look weird lol but i got 4 fans on one channel, 2 fans on another, and the led strip on the 3rd. handles it all like a champ!
and oh man! thank you so much! how did you know it was my birthday!? wait, i might have mentioned it in the build log. haha glad you caught that
lol feelin' the love.
