I'll give you some constructive criticism if you want. Work on your photography, I don't think your picture does your loop the justice it deserves.

Maybe try putting some more effort into your PCI power cables, they still look really messy despite using 3 combs. look into cable training if they're really stubborn.

Thanks for the feedback! I need new combs actually, originally the 8+8 pin power cables were going to 1080 Ti and I cut the ends off the 8+8 pin power combs that came from CableMod (there were no 6 pin combs for whatever reason) so that's why it doesn't look as clean as it should. Great feedback in regards to the photography skills. I have some new pics with the RGB off where I focused a little more on proper angle, focus etc but yeah, not a professional photographer and using a phone as camera (Samsung Galaxy S7).

Why do you hate this ram in particular?

Here's a quick vid I took this morning showing how beautiful this system is with the RGB off:

And some pics!

(Uploading images here is an absolute nightmare, extremely slow, you have to do them one by one and they take forever and we are talking about 3 MB in size)

The aeration / air bubble issue is gone, if that's what youre talking about. At the end of Hard Tube Update and Addendum there is no aeration problem and the temps are good (55C CPU, 41-43C GPU under load).

every time I read up, it basically reads like the industry warns against using alcohol based stuff with thermoplastics as a whole, even though some don't have issues. can't have cheap secret sauce failing before warranty periods.

mooncheese - do you have a flow meter?
No, why?

I dont think I agree with the following statement.
"It does contain alcohol groups which essentially means it is indeed harmful for Acrylic."

I'm not a chemist but just because PG contains alcohol groups doesnt mean it has to be harmful to acrylic, as you know Isopropyl Alcohol is completely different & indeed very harmful.

I think ethylene glycol can harm reservoirs but I'm doubtful about PG especially if mixed low.
It could be that the chemical structure hinders it from being an issue, but the acrylic itself reacts to the the specific structure of alcohol. So like I metnioned previously, I just don't know. I wouldn't risk it though, which was more what I meant to say (sometimes things are lost in transaltion).

Mooncheese First hard tube loop complete!

I just spent the past 24 hours putting the hard tubing loop together (off and on, maybe 10 hours total in actuality):

Addendum video uploading now, the DRGB at night looks out of this world *uploaded:

I went with 14/10 Acrylic, tubing and fittings from Bykski, Distro plate by Barrow, pre-existing EK monoblock and rads, Phanteks Glacier on the 2080 Ti.

Thermaltake View 71

i7 8700k, 5.0 GHz, 0 AVX, Delid, @ 1.342v Dynamic Offset

EVGA 2080 Ti XC2 Ultra @ 2070 MHz core, 8100 MHz memory with an undervolt (1.013v), 90% Confidence Rating in OC Scanner.

2x16 G.Skill Trident Z Royal 3600 MHz 17 20 20 38 @ 1.4v

Oh and the benches, of particular note, Port Royal really responded to the memory overclock, we're talking about a 10% performance gain going from +500 Mhz to +1200 Mhz on the memory.

https://www.3dmark.com/compare/pr/237543/pr/235141

Timespy: (from left to right, +1200 MHz memory, +600 MHz memory, 1080 Ti):https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/1...15/spy/2949106

Nearly 60% gain in Timespy vs 1080 Ti!

Firestrike (from left to right, +1200 MHz memory, +600 Mhz memory, +0 Mhz memory):https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/22...3/fs/21849140#

Some F1 2019 gameplay and Metro Exodus benchmark, more to come:
