Well, not really a true "RIP" but I think the day has finally come for me to move on. I plan to retire my first ever custom loop due to a dying/dead GTX570. It still boots and plays YouTube but instantly artifacts/freezes under load now and throws a video tdr failure error. I think it won't last much longer.
This build has served me well running 24/7 for the past 6+ years, much longer than I expected. I've never had to replace any parts, and I would have guessed the pump would die first but I'm still on the original pump! I know the i7 2600K is still a solid CPU and might not bottleneck a 1080, but I think I'll use this situation as an excuse to splurge on a new build -- I really like the Carbide Air cases.
My question is -- what do you guys think I should list this for as-is on craigslist, w/ the dead GPU? Technically it should run great w/ a new GPU but might be a big inconvenience for someone to modify to loop. Is $300 about right? I don't think it's worth the hassle to part it out since most of these components are very old now. Maybe I'll just keep it as a memento. The specs are in my signature.
