  1. I would be willing to make a "donation" in exchange for an x99 e ws "gift", especially with a 5960x
  2. Thanks for the tip. I understand what it was you were suggesting, but can you explain what "qrb" and "eoc" is?
  3. I feel a little behind since I am what seems like the only one that was never on OCN, but welcome!
  4. As much as I would like 2 support one of the (only 2) manufacturers I have found fir extreme coolers, I have a small milling machine and lathe in my garage and think it would be worth giving it a whack myself. However, I don't even have a baseline on dimensions to start with. The price of copper is ridiculous so I it would be nice to minimize useless prototypes. Not to mention I have very little free time yet I still have more time than money. Any chance someone maybe has some specs? Or maybe a pot they wouldn't mind measuring?
  5. I do realize that most here have been doing this for a while, but there has to be a few stragglers that aren't already on another team. Or maybe some of you old salts need a change? There was one new name that popped up on our team this weekend- "alex132". Not sure of the username here in the forum, but if nothing else it would be nice to see some HWBOT discussion going on. Then again, I have been known to start "new" topics and later find the thread i was looking for.
  6. Went and bought an x99 board that turned out to be junk off the local classifieds. Dude gave me a pile of stuff with it though and among it was this beast. no side panels and no clue what I’m going to do with it, but there certainly is a novelty to its size. (escalade for size reference )
  7. thanks for noticing. it has been treating me well so far. i have had some bad luck recently with used boards, but this one is a jewel.
  8. thanks! I like to think it checks email at least as fast as my phone. i have been doing some benchmarking, which i guess is a form of gaming
  9. @Avacado I see the confusion now! my bad... @UltraMega mentioned checking out his listings on ebay. I know there are big plans for a marketplace in the future. I was trying to make a case for an interim classified section. unless I just haven't found it yet, which is also quite likely
  10. ebay and paypal both have fees for the seller. on here we could paypal "friends and family" to people we trust to avoid their fees (though it also voids any buyer protection).
  11. any chance we could get a temporary classified section to avoid ebay fees? maybe sellers could kick a 5% donation to the site on their sales
  12. 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
  13. Good eye! fortunately I had already signed up, but I didn't catch that in the post
