[Build Log] Project Magis: The Caselabs S5 build I'm giving away - Page 10

Anyone have any input as far as the paint goes? The etch primer I linked before isn't amazon prime eligible so shipping nearly doubles the price... would this be a good alternative?

The only thing that concerns me about it is the "non-sanding" part listed on the front. Not sure if this means "don't sand this" or if it means "you don't have to sand this"... if it's the latter, but can be sanded for a cleaner finish... then I'd say go for it. If it means the former because if you sand it - it will all come off... then it doesn't sound like it's really either self-etching or a primer. But that's probably just marketing speak for - spray and go if you want an OK but not glassy finish. biggrin.gif

Good point. I should probably play it safe and go with the other one.

So THIS MEMORY is on sale for like $33, while the 1600 version is still at $45. Would I be able to use that stick with the other 3 I have or are they not compatible?

Does anyone know if that memory is compatible with what I already have? (THIS)

I would just like to figure this out before the promo code for the 1866mhz ram times out.

It should be, you will just have to run the 1866mhz at the same speed and the same timing of the other stick (I believe)
post #96 of 465
Yeah, it's generally not advisable to mix speeds from a stability standpoint - although it would be easier to make a judgement if it were known that the same brand/configuration of chips were used in both DIMMs. I've had some systems that ran great with a mix (albeit at the slowest set's speeds) but I've had others that had stability issues that I could only trace to differing timing and voltage requirements.

I'd say to be safe you would want to manually set the same timings (and a relaxed set of those at that) for all of them in BIOS and also the voltages. If you leave any of those settings at "AUTO" then it's up to the motherboard to figure it out based on the tables in the RAM itself - and those might not play well with each other.

In short, if this were your system... I would say go for it and just tweak as necessary. Considering this is a system you hope will not require any support after it's handed off - I'd have to recommend using all the exact same RAM (brand,speed,timings, and preferrably even production batch). Even if you set everything up in a way that works well manually... what happens when they decide to clear the CMOS or update to the latest BIOS version (although if they are doing that then they should know what they're doing enough to figure out RAM issues as well). wink.gif

Ya I'll definitely be putting in the speeds and timing manually. I hope it works correctly as I did buy the RAM. I also purchased a Corsair K70 since it was $10 off and a Mionix Avoir 7000.

Just got back from Colorado. Hopefully I'll have a productive couple of days before break is over frown.gif

Here is some of the stuff I got from Lutro0:

Navy blue sleeving, I think it matches the fans much better (sorry if you can't tell from the pictures)





Digikey standoffs and Lutro0 cable combs:











The reservoir configuration:























More to come. Once I have the primer I will be able to paint the backplate and radiator.

Nice fix using those standoffs. What are you planning to do with the other ones?
