Hm...so, I currently have Soundblaster Z which is IMO slightly above the Xonar, right?
Which means I should keep it.

Not at all .... I have been using anodized aluminum for over 25 years in highly corrosive environments no concern whatsoever.

As for restriction....it's barely less than a 10mm acrylic tube

As for looks

I think my board should arrive today.
And while it still isn´t a real upgrade from my current Sabertooth - and even without having seen the Formula in natura yet - I already think it looks amazing.
And that being said, I don´t think I´ll ever get a mainboard without the Asus Armor if possible.

IMO that´s the way mainboards should look like.

Well we design wastewater treatment plants the idea was to have this box be a reflection of what we do.....was looking for a way to have something that looked like dirty water going in and clean water coming out. Idea was twin res's, one of which i was gonna fill w/ clean water and have a QD on the bottom but just wasn't practical. Using bends instead of fittings woulda killed the whole concept. When ya walk into one of our plants, you see a maze of pipes and fittings, all squeezed every which way to fit in the most space efficient manner....this is a big part of what we wanted to present.

As for the flow rates / cooling ... decide for yaself.

-Water flow in the loop ranges from 1.25 gpm at idle to 2.25 under stress testing.... that's about 0.625 to 1.125 gpm thru each GPU WB.

-Under Furmark, with fans at max, Delta T is 8.4C with fan filters out / 12.8 w/ fan filters in.

-Water temp variation can range between 1.3 and 3.1 C depending on pump speed....typically at 2.3 at 850 rpm under Furmark

-GPU temps under Furmark are 39C w/ fans at max .... 44c when fans limited to 850 rpm .... VRM temps never get over 50C

-Resistance thru the GPUs is 28% of what it is in parallel .... with 50% of the flow thru each loop in parallel, friction is proportional to 0.50^1.85

EDIT: I do gotta do new pics but I still haven't gotten around to doing my sleeving and every time I look at that pic with the generic SLI bridge I cringe.

Yeah custom loop would make it look nicer. Although it already is nice acrylic tube would probably make it look neater tubing wise.

yeah i know acrylic tubing is pain in the ass at first or even as a pro. bending and measuring sucks but its well worthed at the end. even for few cm of miss bend will get you scratch your head lol wink.gif

So, my Formula arrived today. Looks quite sexy.

Or to be more specific I like how my Sabertooth looks rather like a Tank while the Formula has this Sportscar vibe.


Anyway, quick question:
One of the features I really like about the Sabertooth (or more specifically about the AI Suite) is that I can turn chassis fans completely off.
Is that also possible with the Formula? Can´t really tell by the screenshots in the manual.

Hmm, the waste-water idea sounds cool! Hmm, what if you had clear tubing and clear fluid, but put a brownish-tinted clearcoat on the tubes you wanted to represent as the "dirty" side? I know tinted clearcoat is possible with automotive finishes, not sure how brown would look though.

Just an idea, I don't know how feasible it would be.

Last night I decided to re-seat my cpu cooler because my idle temps where 38-40 per core... so in the process I disconnected the gpu so it was not in the way. I go everything attached and cleaned out and put back together and try and boot and I now get an A2 IDE Detect on the mob, and not output to my monitor. First I tried different HDMI cables to make sure that the cable was ok. then I made sure the HDMI for the monitor worked by plugging in a different source (ps3) and it worked. By some miracle the monitor detected an output and I got into the Bios at one point and booted, as it got to windows loading screen the screen froze and lost input but the computer stayed running, this happened twice and now I am not able to get the monitor to read an input from the computer any longer. I then removed the GTX770 and tried to run on-board graphics just to see if that worked, no problem there, it loaded right up and got into windows fine. The GPU is Asus GTX770 and my green lights are on and fans are spinning so I know I have power.

Is there anything ells I should try before sending in the GPU for RMA? or does it sound like that is the only option? I have thought about upgrading BIOS/UEFI but the GPU was working fine on this set up before, not sure what ells to do. thought about resetting cmos, is it worth a shot? I'm just confused by the computer randomly deciding to send an output.

Thanks!
Im guessing you have a haswell? If so 38-40 is normal for most haswell. Although u shouldnt be afraid. Secondly i think you have a problem with the gpu or the pcie slot. Clearing cmos should make all the options in bios reset to its default so trying to change anything else will result worst. I would try to rma gpu first imo. You mustve a faulty socket.

Just upgraded to BIOS 1402.

So far so good.
