  1. Hello all, Thanks to some generous members, specifically @axipher & @Avacado we will now start development of the marketplace feature for the forums which will allow users to Sell, Trade and Appraise, please join me in thanking them .

  3. ...sometimes Canada stands in for Russia (and elsewhere...) in James Bond titles...Mt. Asgard, you can visit w/ FS2020

  4. Temps are all over the place for me. Under a constant max load I see way lower temps than the random spikes, not sure what causes that but what ever.. 49°C over ambient is not that bad, I had a few degrees lower temps with a TT 360 aio with pushpull. So that sounds about right

  5. Looks like I made it to the Platinum Club! Can I make this a spolier somehow? 2 of 8 cores are capable of reaching maximum frequencies. Phoenix deactivated!

  6. ^^That ! For a variety of technical reasons, I usually go with dual D5s per loop anyhow, but there's nothing stopping someone to add a D5 to one that comes with the distro. BTW, there are several 'custom' distro plates by ThermalTake for the Core P5 as well as Bykski and Barrow - or the whole Core P5 '''case''' is a distro...first shown several years ago, now finally available...must be pretty heavy though...

  8. Nice! That's a nice upgrade! And I bet you'll try to get all the performance out of that chip. That's some cool stuff, have fun with it! And don't forget to take some pictures when you are done building it.

  9. LOL at not just the representation of you, but what is on the monitor screen as well.

  10. As far as I can tell, I am not near the experience level of most of the other members here but I do have some background in other areas of custom building. Plus you said you are looking for thoughts... I think that anything that is primarily flashy/form-over-function that is in a role to do work is a novelty. I am of the opinion that in a lot of ways, a reservoir is doing work. I don't know how much effect water (fancy water/coolant) capacity has on actual thermal delta, but my system system is seldom on long enough to heat soak and it is because I have a lot of water (big tube res

  11. Good question. Aside from aesthetics, distro/pump combos tend to have more restriction and weaker pumps. The usual EK stuff that conforms the the Lian Li OXD/XL series have older, weaker DDC 3.1 pumps witch need replacing or the user will suffer from decreased flow. Again, most veteran custom loop builders including myself are partial to tube/topper and multi-pump setups. If you are going to go res/pump, make sure it's a D5 or an upgraded DDC like the MPX.

  12. Thank you for the nod. You might want to edit EHW's team number here though :)

  13. Performance>aesthetics, they both accomplish the same task, go the easiest route IMO, 80% of my WC stuff is second hand/pre installed when I bought them (1080ti from ocn member)

  14. I like the EXOS drives. Prior to putting a drive into service, I run this Burn-in script. A 16TB drive takes about a week to complete. If that doesn't kill a new drive, I don't know what will.

  15. Have to say DLSS 3 plus all these new shading/techniques and engines make me even happier about my recent GPU purchase, just means that very possibly there may be more life to eek out of a GPU.

  16. Probably not much help but as another option to copy and paste, you could use a file sync program to sync the update files from one rig to another. I use AllWay Sync personally.

  17. I’m new here. Mostly a tinkerer that ventures into PCs on occasion, but this looked like a good place to drop a pic. Nothing new, just titan blacks but they look cool and the third one was my most recent purchase. Just got it all cobbled together last night. Still need to run the 5th and 6th power wires
