As for the 1300G2 PSU? People complaining about it being loud are crazy or very picky, I haven't ever heard mine at 800rpm on all of my 42 fans wink.gif
I'm still deciding if I should split my loops to two. The RX480 for the 4770k and the RX360, RX240 and 560GTS for the two Titans.

I figured out the problem with my water temps last night. It has to be the dust filters that came with the case. I was running the SP120 QE at max (1350-1400) with no filters or anything blocking the intakes. The max temps I was reaching for the water was 38.9c and I believe the max TX temps are 48c. That's the best it's come to. Temps would have been lower with the side panel off, but with it on that's when it hit 38.9c. However, with fans running at 60% (800-900rpm) they jump higher. I turned the PC off before it hit 40c so it would've been much higher. With the added 560 and 480, I hope temps will drop at least 5-10c.

And I can guarantee the 20 fans I'll be running will drown out the G2 fan.

I would imagine they would sound the same.

August 5th will be the 6 week Mark. I haven't received an email like everyone else has (the one where CL says that they are behind and the shipping date has been extended), so it appears it's still on schedule. I'm hoping to receive it a week before the 24th because that's when school starts back up, and it's going to be a hellava semester biggrin.gif

Sorry, but not massive as in the case has arrived ... frown.gif

I just spent $380 over at PPCS for my three Vardar ER fans for the RX360 rad along with some fittings and... AND.... Wait for it... AND... AND... A second XSPC D5 PWM photon 270 biggrin.gif

I don't even want to count up how much this PC has cost me over the past year and a half. Now I'll probably have only one more order because I may need some more fittings, and tubing, as well as the 140 vardars when released.

How many more fittings do you need? I have some extras that I won't be using, just pay shipping and they're yours.

Were they the primo chill anodized red revolver? Unfortanely I already placed my order frown.gif . It's no big deal. Thanks though

That moment you kick yourself in the rear wink.gif



Glad you got some more head way on why your water temps are so high! Adding the extra radiator space will definitely help. Once the X99 platform/5960x arrives, I think I'm going to stuff another 140mm + rig a 360mm into the front of the Core X9. Might even change the colors on a few things as well.

You do have to appreciate how close this community is.

I was able to cancel the fittings in the order, so thanks @Tunz

I just calculated all the money I've spent at FCPU and PPCS. I'm running at $2500 worth of watercooling equipment, but that's not including the money I received when I sold my 780 blocks and such. Oh geez. I'm going insane. I wish I never got into watercooling. I should've stuck with my H100i haha. I'm hoping the extra huge rads I'm adding will make a huge difference, especially after spending an additional $60 on the three vardars and soon I'll be getting the 140 vardars when they are out. But you know what? I don't regret anything because this is something I enjoy doing. I need to start limiting myself to the spending, but oh well for now haha.

I really like those X9's. I can't believe the amount of rad space that can fit in those. Have you ordered the 5960X yet?

I just ordered a Bitspower "Bragi" CPU/Motherboard block. I feel your pain. I went over how much I've spent and it's just climbing! I was like, "well, if I'm going to have to drain my loop, AGAIN, I might as well change it up a bit on the color scheme!" so, cables are also ordered.


Yeah, I just sent out payment on the 5960x. It should ship tomorrow.

Ironically, I'll probably end up selling my current Mobo/Ram/CPU in my spare Phantom 820 case with the Seasonic 860 EVO and custom sleeved wires for nearly what I have into the 5960x/MSI X99 Mobo/Ram. Which means I'll only have ended up spending money on aesthetics... go figure.
