  1. The opening riff of b.y.o.b. always reminds me of
  2. I got a test sample from ICEGIANT, and permission to pass it around the forums. If you haven't already contacted me, and you are interested, just P.M. me and I'll get you on the list. Keep in mind that even though the list is maybe less than 20 so far, you figure each person is going to spend a week or so with the cooler, then it might take another week or so to ship it to the next person, so if you are far down the list it could be a couple months before you get your hands on it. I know @mllrkllr88 will be doing an official EXTREMEHW review of this cooler, but this is an informal thing just f
  3. She's awesome. She's been doing IT since she was 8 years old with her father and now works for AIRBUS as senior support engineer.. She's really strong with networking and good with hardware too, but she lets me build and tweak all her stuff for her because to her that's work and not fun. She's also the biggest gamer in the house. This is her playing last night some AC Odyssey showing off her computer.
  4. Awww here we go. You read the thread this far, so you have no life. Now watch the videos until your brain turns to dust or this blows up my computer. We can only hope that it will explode so it will spare us from anymore posts in this thread. No leak but it either wasn't really primed or was a weak mount, but as you see a little suck and spit got it going great Oh wow 21.4% Core OC 30.0% VRAM OC (Unlocked AB Slider Max'd) ~ 37C Load after steady state reached with the MAX OC. Flimsy Stock cooler was almost always 88C when we were fold
  5. Well it didn't lose any water overnight. I siliconed the outside rims twice more. This pump/block is like a cursed item I cannot rid myself. I keep finding myself compelled to mess with it. I found just the right crusty old fan to go on the radiator, and old original sickleflow. I need to let this thermal adhesive dry a little longer on these aluminum chunks, otherwise it's ready to test. Everything is tight asf with zip ties. Oh one finishing touch!

  7. How are you supposed to mount this block? Who cares it's $5!
  8. My wife laughing at your case badges on your panel. Love it!
  9. They had me a "free gift for new user" if you spend at least $1. Reminds me of aliexpress.
  10. Great I fell down the banggood rabbit hole!
  11. Ooh I've been eyeing a new SuperFlower Leadex III ever since they started selling on newegg!
  12. Funny you said that. While we were leak testing, I was trying out my new grinder and blade on some old chipset heatsinks just for that purpose. My dumbass burned myself just enough to hurt like hell when I touched the heatsink after I cut it. My brain was like "don't touch it" and the tips of my fingers were like "shut up brain" lol. That was while we were thinking about still mounting it on a bobo graphics card. Now that we reset the project, we decided to have that radiator cool a bobo CPU instead. I ordered a $20 waterblock on ebay direct from China...what could go w
  13. Ok officially done investing anymore time into that pump-block. It leaked again after about 3 hours. I told my son I'll just get him a cheap pump and universal block if he wants to play around with that copper radiator. It's a very slow leak, so slow that I'm still using it to flush that radiator. I'm curious so I marked the water level on the "reservoir" and I'll check it in the morning to see exactly how much was lost.
