You can put LEDs in your water blocks. Plus you can choose the color. I just did my CPU and GPU blocks with LEDs last weekend.

This might sound like a crazy question, however I'll ask it anyway.

I own the MSI GTX 980Ti. This is powered by 2x 8Pins from the PSU.

Now, my question is, is there any difference between using 2x seperate PCI-E cables for each 8Pin slot compared to using 1x PCI-E cable, which is split to 2x 8Pins on the end?

Am I likely to get lower power draw using a split cable, rather than 2 direct cables from the PSU?

It wouldn't matter bro. I personally use 2 individual cables per gpu but you can do either one it wouldn't matter.

It will work but weakly. The loss of about 25 -30 degrees Celsius

My 980 Ti Hybrid kit should be here today, gotta shoot some b-roll of it tonight, maybe install tomorrow. Hopefully I can get a review up of it by Tue or Wed. biggrin.gif

Cheers for the quick answer. Think i'll swap it over to 2 individuals anyway, just in case. I've got enough cables so may as well.

i know! i put mine in last night forgot to take a pic. i went with the UV Led's. they look sick next to all the blue leds. im just saying, what am i going to gain by spending 200$ on a water cooling for my bpu when im not going over 65c as is. even with my overclock. i got pretty high last night and didnt break that temp. check it out






1515mhz @8000mhz memory. 1.237v

I already have the 3mm UV from EK but they are not bright at all in my opinion.
