Hi there,

just saw you're from Sweden. Do you have good hardware especially watercooling shops over there? I ordered loads of parts from Germany but that's very expensive and takes a lot of time. Just thought maybe it's better to order from Sweden. I live in Norway btw smile.gif

Just a side comment on the 'upside down thing' - why is it that cutting the entire case apart to make a small change like moving the drive cage or reversing the motherboard tray is considered 'cool' if it does absolutely nothing to help with performance... yet simply putting the block on with the printing upside down (or for that matter, rotated 90 degrees) is necessarily a huge oversight?

I'm not looking to add more fuel to the fire, but simply posing a rhetorical question for some 'reflection' on everyone's part. Arguing aesthetics is one thing - there really isn't a 'right' or 'wrong' answer - one person likes one thing, others like another. As far as performance however - there usually IS a 'right' answer and a 'wrong' answer - or at least a 'better' and a 'worse' one. I think a lot of the confusion regarding whether peoples comments are constructive criticism or are just random hating comes from this misapplication on many of our parts.

In the case of the block - would you make just as much noise if it were mounted so the text could be read correctly - but that would also mean there were a bunch of crossed tubing runs because the layout wasn't as effective? I'm guessing a different set of people would respond with criticism for that move. For those that still don't know the block is the way it is because of his planned tubing run - which he stated in the first response. A while back someone interpreted some criticism over the unnecessary use of additional reservoirs as being directed toward the rig as a whole - and I can't speak for everyone, but for myself that was the only problem I had with it - from an aesthetic standpoint it was perfectly fine.

Heck - if you like it, but a bird cage with a dancing hula girl in the middle of it - all lit with pink and green neon. However, if I see something that looks confusing or contrary to actual performance... I still think it's in everyone's interest to call it out. At worst, one or two people's feelings are hurt for a day or two - at best someone who would otherwise wonder how they spent hundreds on gear and still get mediocre performance from their rig, learns how to get much better performance without having to spend another penny!

I think everyone needs to just take a breath and realize that it's just an inanimate object we're talking about, and that we all have differing levels of experience in a variety of areas. We can all learn from each other and be collectively better - or we can desire a vacuum in which to exist where we learn nothing and only receive hollow praise for everything. That's what they do in schools here now... giving all the 'participation trophies' and the like... unfortunately, in real life there is no such thing - and it's a hard lesson to learn apparently (based on the responses I've gotten from employees over the years).

OK I'll shut up now and go back in my hole. rolleyes.gif

Actually you misinterpreted what I said;

The in port is on an inconvenient side, if we're talking about CPU only loops (which I am), when right side up, so I had to change it in order to have proper waterflow and therefore good performance. I will change it "right side up" when I add the GPU! Thank you for taking the time to explain the stuff, I'm glad that you take initiative to make sure people are getting the most out of their rig!

Hi Tonky! Well, I am familiar with Inet.se, webhallen.se, Liontech.se, coolingstuff.se, highflow.nl (Norwegian). I hope this helps thumb.gif

Sorry but my OCD simply wouldn't allow the block to be upside down. That's pretty much all there is to it... redface.gif

No I didn't misinterpret - I obviously just didn't communicate it properly. redface.gif All I was saying was that you made a performance-related decision to mount it the way that you did (for proper flow - otherwise you'd have had to cross tube-runs to still have the 'in' side actually receiving the 'in' flow), as opposed to an aesthetic one at the cost of performance (so people could read the 'in' text even though it cooled less). biggrin.gif

As usual my words failed to communicate properly what my brain was thinking... happens all the time. wink.gif
