post #58471 of 106716
Okay I have a couple of dumb questions:

1) Are the EK RAM blocks specific to either the regular Dominator or Dominator Platinum sticks? I bought the Platinum sticks last night and noticed the obvious difference in heatsinks on top.

2) Also, are the heatsinks on the Platinum sticks sufficient enough to keep them cool, or is it pretty much a standard practice for you guys to put EK blocks on them? I know there's a little bit of liberty when it comes to opinion on function versus bling, but statistically speaking, which is better - to heatsink or to water block it?

3) Lastly, does anyone have the clear CSQ RAM blocks installed on their rig? If so, could you post pictures...

Good evening guys/girls,

Still looking for more inspiration.
Wanting to put my cpu under water and am now searching for a nice reservoir.

Which reservoir will fit nicely in my Corsair 650D?
I will be using a MCP655 pump with a EK X-Top.
Radiator will be on top of the case with a rad-stand.

Can't seem to find it now, but I know I have seen a guide on best way to pack a wc pc for travel for long distances somewhere that was written by a guy that takes builds to shows regularly. I will try to dig it up

The new Monsoon fittings w/ rigid tube are probably more "secure" than anything...... the video on the acrylic thread shows like a 30 pound weight hanging on them.

I think ya talking about the Singularity Computers video on you tube

$0.39 at Walmart for a gallon......

DW, I would prolly just replace with new but w/ Mayhems, I'd simply reuse. Many peeps drain the loops for inspection or modification and simply reuse or filter and reuse.

DDR3 doesn't need water cooling (well outside of extreme overclocking i.e. LN2) .... it doesn't even need the heat sinks for air cooling. When peeps add WBs it's usually for aesthetics.

Yes, this ^^^^*. Just because you drain it doesn't mean the coolant has to be thrown away.

Locally grocery store or CVS/Walgreens type store. It's in the section with the rest of the water jugs, typically a gallon is about $1. Don't get the drinking water or demineralized water, there will be a small section of jugs that say Distilled Water. That's the good stuff!

And just about any decent sized truck stop or service station will have it as well, used for vehicle batteries. Now that I'm in Yurp, I buy mine from petrol stations, and it comes in nice plastic 5 litre jerry cans that are also good to drain back into.

Mayhems recommends after draining, run Pastel thru a coffee filter to get any extra crap from the rads out. You can reuse the fluid no problems

It's pretty simple to operate, place a flat object in that slot (a coin perhaps), rotate counter-clockwise (a clock's hands go 'round in a circle right to left, so counter-clockwise is left to right), and before you know it, it lifts right off, with no damage to the actual reservoir.

Once it's off, you'll see this dark hole. Don't be afraid, it's only dark, not full of monsters or warranty demons. You can use that dark hole to your benefit, as it makes an ideal (dare I say, intended) place to introduce liquid to the system. Then retrieve that fill cap you so bravely removed earlier, place it back over the non-warranty-demon-hole, and turn it clockwise this time, until it is once again water-tight. The usual caveats about O-rings and over-tightening would apply.

Just to, you know, clarify a bit more for those following along from home (emphasis mine):
I mean, c'mon man. Did you hesitate to remove the included plug cap from the G1/4 fittings on the bottom? It's not there for decoration.[/spoiler]

Luna, I love you like an OCN brother, but you're seriously over-thinking some things, and dangerously under-thinking others in this build. smile.gif

Please cut the crap and I apologize that I've somehow pissed you off to a point you feel the need to troll w/ baby talk and regurgitate what everyone just finished answering and you feel the need to treat me like a degenerate because I asked a question to correct your misinformation.

The only comments you've been throwing are how crappy things are and how I should do things your way, nothing actually contstructive, then coming out w/ this and blowing up over a simple question. I really pray you get help, because you're Seriously taking things in the most dramatic and most stress forming way.

I'm sorry I don't have all the knowledge in the world like you feel you have to sit here and look down on people that ask questions, but I'm not afraid to ask questions and not afraid to listen. I just refuse to listen to crap from people like you that feel like they're words are god's gift to man.

I don't know what crawled up your butt but seriously you need to chillax and take a chill pill or a vacation, because if a simple damn question like that is enough to piss you off, I understand why you're rarely ever posting in here.

I asked a simple question, it was a yes or no for removing the LARGE fill cap, that's all, but apparently something in that context was just completely blown out of proportion by your ego. Hope you feel better and get well and learn how to socialize.

To Everyone else:

My apologies for going off topic, I just hate people like this, and this is why certain people feel like they shouldn't ask and end up w/ bad results because of people like that.
