Just payed Kyle a couple of days ago for a prototype Splash, and I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival! And thank you, Heuristic, your post on reddit led me here
Anyway, this leaves me with a few weeks to plan my build.
Currently, I'm reading every single build log there is using a Splash. This has given me lots of good ideas, I'd just like to check them out with you, if that's okay
Regarding motherboards, I'm leaning towards the Asus ROG one, as I've understood it this is the best board right now? (The EVGA stinger Heuristic used is overly expensive here in Sweden.). Only problems I've read about the board is the long POST times, has anyone been able to reduce those? 20 seconds seems like a bit over the top.
Regarding radiators, pumps and reservoirs, is there any goto brands? I'm new to WC, and it seems alphacool and EK are the most used? Is there any new product by any of them I should take a look at?
And finally, regarding PSUs, is SilverStones the only choice? What was the name of the fan that could replace the overly load stock fan? Read about it somewhere but I just can't find it again!
Really glad I can be a part of this
And sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure I get as many things right as possible before I start buying stuff. Would feel a lot better if I get things confirmed!
