These usually come with motherboards. ASUS calls it the Q-connector, MSI has something similar, Gigabyte and the rest likely do as well
Some men just want to watch the world burn
I'm not looking to part out, sorry
Not looking to part out. Make an offer
I didn't, that's the share link that Google gave me
I do still have the stock cooler but it's the AMD reference blower.
I do have an AMD GPU. I wouldn't say I have issues with tearing in most cases but it happens on occasion. IPS just seems better given that and my current monitor
This was the rig at the event, correct?
Guess nobody needs an H220-X lol
Well, they do that on r/hardwareswap. It's a good subreddit
In reality, OP will probably be 100% okay. The "power hungry" AMD card only really needs high power under high loads and even then, because he only has one GPU, he will probably rarely - if ever - approach the power limit of the PSU.
I know that's what it is on r/hardwareswap, etc. I was just feeling lazy hahaha
That's a good idea. You could probably just buy a 5th leg for center-rear
Don't be surprised if you get a large amount of bowing in the middle. My Linnmon ended up with about 1/2-1" of indentation from starting point. Example picture is on my Instagram
Oh, awesome! Thank you!
That's mostly just the angle I took the photo from but it is at a slight angle due to the reservoir being mounted to it and the radiator being attached to the removable bracket of the R4. It's less secure than on other cases which is part of the reason I wouldn't recommend the R4 for watercooling, but it's fine.
There weren't any high res ones for the Challenger :(
That tiny run out of the flow indicator must've been a real b!tch to apply.
Thanks and to you as well, like-master :)
You're probably not going to get more than $300 for it if that
How much are you asking?
I mean 64 bit lol
Yeah, I want to watercool but it's just so damn expensive
I always keep water on hand. Sometimes it helps to dump a glass or two over the top of it.
That's just their policy
That's a beautiful case/build +1
I can tell you that it does. At <1080p on BF4, I was having stutter issues and frames around 50. On games like CS:GO, I get an average of 80-100. Which is ridiculously low for a 290.
Yes, I really want the HT of the i7 though, so it's just a matter of saving up. And I got the G3258 for $0 - Christmas gift.
I wouldn't say horrible but it could be better
Nothing wrong with that
RAM is less serious than CPU at the moment, because it's not the limiting factor, but it is something I have been looking at as well
It's at 4.5GHz but I am looking to upgrade
EDIT 2: I just saw that others replied
It's solid as all hell. I'm surprised by how well it handles rendering (which I do from 720-2160p). It could definitely use the i7 to just totally destroy the renders
Yeah, I definitely notice some limiting due to the sheer horsepower of the 290, but only in CPU intensive games (BF4, etc.). In CS:GO, my frames could be better but I never dip below 80 so I can live with it until I upgrade.
I know, I'm just strapped for cash right now
That was bought years ago and does not reflect what I actually paid
I already have a Z97 Gaming 5, just looking for the i7 at the moment
Find a Best Buy and Microcenter within 25 miles of each other in the US. Call up Best Buy and say that you have access to a Microcenter but that are on summer break in (wherever you are) and would like it shipped to there for convenience.
I've heard that works, worst they can do is say no.
Still have the H100i?
Awesome, thank you
There are holes for both main sizes but yes 100x100. Any connection type will do as long as it's not VGA
Can you help me out with my monitor choice?
lol both; just go with conventional air flow. Heat rises, positive pressure. Two intake front, one back, and two exhausted in the top. Just my 2c
Seems equipped for much more than just light gaming. This is a beast of a build. Nice work :)
RAM is clocked at 1600
It's clocked at 1600 and was re-used from a previous build
He re-used the RAM from a previous build
