Looks like i wont have to chop the sinks down after all,good to know the dom fins will fit those plates.

I heard some Samsung users complaining they're a tad too short to the plate to grab. Really tempted to pick up a used set of Vengeance on fleabay but auctions can get out of control for the price. Have to prowl for the buy-it-now ones.

But, I still ask myself "do I really need 32gb of ram????" And then just pull back tongue.gif.

congrats ginger. watch for leaks...

stick, xspc fittings are fine. i dont know how well primochill tube fits it though.

Howdy all, I need a little advice with a couple of things. First off, I'm thinking about getting some Noise Blocker eLoop B12-3 or B12-PS. Is the only real advantage of the B12-PS being PWM that it can be controlled via software and optimized settings on your motherboard? Is there something other than a fan controller that I can use for the B12-3's or can they be controlled with speed fan?

Also I want to get another SSD or two for my system. I currently own a Samsung 840 Pro 128gb that I use for my OS. I'd like to get maybe a 256gb Samsung for games and applications. I'd kinda like to stay with the same brand and model so that I can optimize them with the same Magician software. Is there a better(cheaper) alternative like say the Kingston HyperX SSD's like this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-239-046&nm_mc=EMCPB-122013&cm_mmc=EMCPB-122013-_-PB-_-Item-_-20-239-046&et_cid=3802&et_rid=3768634

Congratulations brother....I think you will notice that this build is far from complete and will growth...Also tends to leak often and spill both from the drain and the fill port. biggrin.gif

So, EK finally responded to my RMA submission form. Note that I specified COPPER replacements "Hello Robert, we can send out new nickel plates tomorrow, ok?!" headscratch.gif I respond "I chose copper on the RMA form due to the seemingly never ending EK nickel issues, I'm not quite sure how I would mate a copper plate to an already corroded nickel CPU block top" EK: " OK " headscratch.gif ok what? sending out nickel plates for the GPU blocks that i'm just going to sell isn't really an issue, but the entire CPU block needs to be replaced. I was hoping to get all copper, since you know... the RMA form gives you a choice. I can't just simply replace the cold plate on the CPU, that makes no sense.

does anyone know if they send out new O-rings with the replacements plates?

Speaking of corrosion, I'd like to know if nickel with copper is one of the worst combinations to use without any anti-corrosive additives. Both my rads will have copper fins, and CPU and GPU blocks are all nickel or nickel plated. I have the EK-FC7950 and the Bitspower Z77 ITX mobo block, matching with silver-colored XSPC radiators (they are really aluminum but not part of the flow path).

I mounted the pump on the motherboard tray. I considered the other side but then it was cramped up against the AMS radiator on the front panel. Any reason I shouldn't do this?

Hello folks,

The time has come. My first watercooling build. I just thought I'd give you guys a little overview of my plans since this is my first time.

Hardware:
Compact Splash case
MSI Z87I mobo
i5 4670k
GeIL Black Dragon 2x 4gb CL10 DDR3-2133
Samsung 840 evo 256GB
Silverstone ST45SF-G
Club 3D R9 280x RoyalQueen 3GB

I originally wanted to get a GTX 770 but it's 2GB VRAM held me back. BF4 recommends 3GB and I've heard games are slowly going to push 3gb VRAM. Does this really apply for me though? I use a 120hz monitor and I usually have to tune the settings down a bit to achieve the necessary high framerate. I do this by turning down the AA settings normally. I know AA uses lots of VRAM so I wonder if it really matters if I get 3GB VRAM instead of 2GB.

As for the water cooling:


As you can see I'm going full rigid acrylic. I am planning to use no angled fittings and do the bends myself. The bends will be tight, but I've seen builds with very tight bends so I am not worried about it.

Are the Bitspower enhance multi-link fittings really compression fittings? I am planning to use compression fittings.

Cheers biggrin.gif

You could definitely control them with speedfan. But the biggest advantage of PWM isn't just software control, it's that you're fan isn't sucking it's power from your motherboard. PWM gets its power directly from your PSU (as long as you wire it correctly) and the mobo just sends a pulse/speed signal on the 4th wire. The B12-3's will be drawing their power directly from the motherboard. It's not a big deal if you're not gonna load up the fan headers, but PWM is always better for mobo headers. No danger of burning out the header

Looks great to me!!!

Only issue you would possibly have that i can see is if your GPU's are too long and interfere with the res. But other than that, no reason not to put it there. Looks great

Okay so PWM is the way to do. I'll have 9 fans in all on my rads and rear exhaust. I'll have to daisy chain them and figure out how many I will use on each header. I have the MSI Z77 Mpower motherboard so I'll have to see how many fan headers I have also.
