I'm off and on about mayhem dyes and pastels or distilled with coloured tubing. In the end I'm probably going to lean towards whichever is more aesthetically pleasing, I know you tried lots of options so whats your opinion or recommendation?

Edit: I've been sitting here for a while now on my pc and noticed my 25C idle temps, lol good old stock cooler for ya, don't need no flashy water cooling tongue.gif

I'm pleased with my EK clear and mayhem dye mix. Luckily we can get mayhems fairly cheap through techworld

Yeah that was the idea I was going for, EK supremacy plexi/ copper and pastel orange.
I only wish scott could make techworld the performancepc/ froznencpu of NZ oneday, he provides a very rare service smile.gif

Quick question, what do you guys think of all the new amd cards that have just come out?
The pricing is amazing and the performance just as good. eg. the r9 280X is about $100 cheaper than a 770 and is just under, on par or even better than it in certain tests. Might have one of these in consideration if water blocks come out soon.
post #56 of 168
I got an email from EK in my inbox today that says the PCB design on the R9 280X is the same as the 7970 and 7950 cards their current blocks fit.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Because the Radeon R9 280X is based on a Tahiti XT GPU (the very same GPU used on the Radeon HD 7970 and HD 7950 graphics cards) and no prescribed reference design the majority of graphics card manufactured have simply re-used it's existing circuit board design - either the most commonly used design is a AMD reference design (109-C38637) or a proprietary design such as ASUS DirectCU II and MATRIX.

As a result a lot of these graphics cards can be used with EK-FC7970 CSQ series water block or other water blocks from EK's portfolio such as EK-FC7970 DCII. In order to simplify the search for suitable and compatible water block EK has added more than 15 different Radeon R9 280X (as well as numerous Radeon R9 270X and R7 260X series) graphics cards from various manufacturers to EK Cooling Configurator database and compatible graphics cards are being added to the list on daily basis.

My thought is won't they say on them that the card is a 7970 or 7950 though?

Well I didn't think about that, I knew they were the same base cards but didn't think of using 7970/50 blocks. I'm not too sure on the names on the blocks, some have it some don't, but I couldn't buy a block with the wrong name tongue.gif
post #58 of 168
Haha I'm the same, it's just not right! Wait for blocks then, those new AMD cards do seem tasty enough for patience smile.gif

I've not bought any new hardware for ages frown.gif In fact I think several generations of cards and CPUs have come out since my build was last running rolleyes.gif

The new AMDs look nice but I'll stick with my 770.

I don't know what voltage control is like with amd cards but unfortunately it's locked for the 770 nd Kepler cards so I can only get about 1.34ghz stable and 8ghz memory. Defeats the point of water cooling... It stays at 38 degrees under load at least tongue.gif

I think computer lounge have it preordered at 550 (280x)
