sorry I didn't get the question :P what do you mean?
Yes I was! it was the perfect fit
Thank you! I will post pics by tonight make sure to follow up!
You mean the vrms? It's already screwed in so I had to unscrew it, mount it, and screw it back.
Thanks and send me a link to yours when you get it done I'd like to see some picture. Also, it was super tough to incorporate the custom loop. Plan yourself very carefully, and use the front of the case to work on since you'll have no other opening to work with. Good luck!!
I did not expect this to happen...Thank you so much for everything! :) Cheers to your awesome product!
The drastic change you and I noticed is just so amazing, it was my first time doing a custom loop on a gpu, and boy am I happy.
oh woah :O Thank you so much for the compliment. I just saw your build and yours is as wonderful as well! I really enjoyed reading your adventure/progress. It's all about personalizing your computer to satisfy yourself ;) we're all artists at the end of the day
The pump is a DCP pump hidden under the hard drive cage. It's tough to install without proper cable management
any time mann! I'll pop by your profile every so and then to check up on your progress
This build is looped from the bottom opening of the radiator, to the reservoir, then the pump, CPU, GPU and back to the rad. The quality of the coolant, thermal paste and size of the reservoir helped me achieve these low temps. The reason why I went CPU first since it is the most important component to cool (in my opinion) than the GPU. I've managed to go from 85 on GPU load to about 33 so I'm really happy with that.
Funny you mention that LOL! I had to tilt the case, thankfully it 's the size of an ice box.
I was afraid it wasn't going to be enough, so I kept researching on its efficiency and despite the fact that I only have one rad inside, it does still work marvelously
Hahahaha that comment just made my day. I will definitely try to get my hands on an awesome camera and post higher quality pictures as well as the final results on an event we're sponsoring! I'll definitely keep updating this page as needed
It isn't a nexXxos 30mm radiator. My clearance was 55mm total, the fans are 25mm. I could of either went with a 30mm and buy 15mm or purchase a Darkside 27mm with higher fpi, and 25mm pwm fans. If I were to pick the nexxxos, which I was close to, My clearance would've been 55mm total, but the fans would of touched the motherboard.
I love it! I would suggest you calibrate it using Lagom. Its a cool little website you can Google it.
As for the dead pixel that's a bummer... A lot of resellers provide limited in store warrantee for dead pixels. Long story short, most would brush you off and say too bad, its just one dead pixel which is frustrating. Perhaps you should contact Asus their service center is close if you live in Canada (They're in Markham) so you should expect quick RMAs. I would give it a try even though monitors aren't defined as defective with a dead pixel, more than with many.
Thank you fine sir! The red bull did most of the work
Thank you rikku for the +!! Really means a lot to see the light after being isolated for many days in the man cave
The reason why it crashes multiple times is due to the fact that Prime 95 isn't as optimized as it should've been with Haswell series, especially the Devil's Canyon.
In this build I started with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility the CPU stress is great for testing stability, for burn tests I like to run aida64 Extreme. Sometimes I like to run both at the same time, be careful though! you don't want to have them running for more than an hour together. For GPU testing, I'd highly recommend Furmark! it's wonderful!!
Partially! You should definitely have a look at the Cool-laboratory Ultra they're not only inexpensive thermal paste they're just amazing!
I wish!!! I was considering painting those as well, then I thought maybe that would ruin the entire aerodynamics of the Noctua (the quiet and beautiful CFM fans we've all heard about).
Thank you so much TheBored!! :) and those are great temps, I wouldn't use p95 on a devil's canyon Haswell CPU. I've heard lots of bad stories :O
Thank you so much! It was tricky putting everything together but I knew it had to be done.
where's the video card? Change your NZXT and buy a corsair H110i
they're both easy to overclock on. in terms of changing cpu clock and dram clock that's easy. but when it comes to additional features such as the fan control which is part of the asus 5 way optimization you can literally control your fan speeds while posted. Sure you can use other software to compensate for the lack of that feature in the MSI mobo, but hey that's too much work for the same price mobos. i'd definitely go with the MSI mobo though despite the fact that it's missing some features the asus mobo had. I find my volt readings much better then the asus mobo. Back to your question, they're both easy to overclock. MSI is slightly easier to overclock then the asus because of the bios ui.
The motherboard i have was annoying at first. I started off with a z97-a and i absolutely loved the 5 way optimization feature. It was also less confusing then the msi gaming 5 mobo. Weirdly enough though i was able to reach 4.5GHz my first try with a very low cpu volt then i was able to with the previous z97-a mobo. All in all the msi is a great mobo just takes a bit of getting used to
it is carbon fiber mista :)
a lot of people have been asking me about the monitors as well when i first bought them but its actually really good. My monitors response rate is at 2ms (not the best, but not bad at all!! i can hardly see the blur that happens when an object moves super fast). its also clocked at 60hz. What I might do actually is have these two monitors as my left and right ones, and buy a korean 144hz 1ms monitor in the middle. But so far I've been super happy with the ones I have, there's no weird resolutions/pixels/or any other related issues with them. I hope that helped you!
thank you :)
believe it or not, it was my first time custom water cooling and there were no leaks near the fittings after my trial run!! It's pretty simple it just takes extra precautions in case something goes wrong.
I usually watch streams on the left monitor, and play games on the right one with no noticeable reduced performance/quality. I even tried to play two games at once and there were no noticeable reduction in performance/quality.
Some cool features they have:
10,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
Dynamically enhances the display’s contrast by adjusting the luminance
of the backlight to achieve the darkest black and brightest white – delivering lifelike images.
2ms Response Time
Quick response time of 2ms (GTG) eliminates ghosting and tracers for more fluid video playback.
Full HD with HDMI
Enter a spectacular world of colors with Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) support and HDMI port.
pretty satisfied. they're 23.6inch running a resolution of 1920x1080 which is great for gaming. I bought two since i have a tendency to multitask while i'm doing something else. for example, i like to watch movies or read lores as im playing a game, so i got two. it really depends on your preferences whether or not you want 1,2 or three. if there's any questions ask me :)
EDIT: they also have their own integrated speakers! pretty cool
