It makes me sad to see someone drop $130 on a water cooler when they could have gotten much more bang for the buck spending that money on a better CPU and a descent air cooler.

Also, there is the bit where I keep hearing my friends complain about their 2-3 year old water cooler failing.

My original h50 from 2009 still works lol.

My H100 from 2012 also works perfectly and has been transferred several times between builds.

These closed loop watercooling solutions are great in my opinion.

I have also heard from a number of friends about their all in one failing, so no thanks. Especially when you can get a Noctua NH-D15 for about $90, it has equivalent or better cooling than most AIO coolers, will last for practically forever, and the only moving component is easily replaceable. Alternatively, there are a plethora of good enough for stock air coolers in the $30 range.

Evileh Nov 25, 2019 10:59 AM

Some Pics For such a small case the little bastard is heavy

They are rgb… Unfortunately the motherboard only has one fan header on it.. micro itx. So the splitter I got from amazon for 4 fans that are in there unfortunately don't work with the cooler master front fans plug. The adapter I got only has a 2 pin config and this has a 3. So no rgb but the switch on the fan has either red or blue. He needs to get a hub if he wants to control the color and he didn't care.


Also the fans are making horrible humming noise in the front of the case like it's rattling the frame they make the sound not attached but even more so when. So I dunno. We might switch them out or try to find some rubber washers to dampen the sound.

:lol:

but they do work well


:p

and for a shed that get warm even with r30 in the walls and r40 celling it will max out at 94f on 115f days no cooling
till I open it up and turn on the cooling in the summer a air good cooler will cool off faster than a aio or full water

Meteor_of_War Nov 26, 2019 09:25 AM

There's nothing wrong with air coolers, and not everyone wants stupid rainbow colored lights coming out of their PCs. :rolleyes:

My H60 is acting up, so it's back to Noctua for me. Air = no fuss and fewer concerns for me. I got the H60 for pennies on the $ and wanted to give it a shot. Nice for what it is.

New card!

I don't believe in rgb walls or "setup" goals.


logical Dec 9, 2019 09:14 AM

Looks like it gets hot in there if you arent running the ac 24/7

One is a foldable desk lol. The other two I don't remember I bought them many years ago.

Monitors are not the same

Acer x35 3440x1440 Gsync hdr
Acer X27 4k Gsync hdr
Alienware 3440x1440 gsync
LG 34um94p

Acutally it's warm not because of the PCs more because the heat is way too high. Buildings in nyc lol.

In the summer Im sure that rooms cooks. I got a loft with 2 PCs and if the air isnt running while we are gaming its hot as hell. Even with the house fan(whole house circulation) going it still gets hot.

Evileh Dec 10, 2019 12:46 AM

Some one has waaaay too much money lol.. i'm jelly :cry:

I've had an i7 3930k system for a long time but decided to upgrade with Ryzen out and making it more worthwhile.

Some new bits:



Some old bits:



And all done:



I'm particularly pleased with how quiet this system is compared to the old one and was concerned when I powered it up for the first time I didn't have it properly connected it made so little noise.

Evileh Dec 10, 2019 08:11 AM

omg they finally made black

Well spotted, you're correct it's gun metal for the case but thinking the person might be referring to the cooler as I think it's only recently been made available in black? I'm not too bothered about looks but I think it was worth paying a bit more for the black one as I think it looks much better than their usual colours which don't really fit with the normal colours inside a computer case.

Megaman Dec 10, 2019 03:25 PM

Oh...my apologies Evil. Carry on!

Evileh Dec 13, 2019 03:56 PM

Yeah I was talking about the Noctua

Shapeshifter Dec 14, 2019 09:18 PM










Basically done. My attempts at cable managment such as they are. I should probably get some custom extension cables due to how bad the stock 6/8 pin gpu power cables are.

1: The new Corsair Battlefield Ryzen 7 System w/ Liquid cooling & Radeon VII




Late 2019 UPDATE!!


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to Bob & all. Some small changes to my system as Galvbertratron remains UNCHANGED , but the Corsair system is now a Ryzen 5 3600x and an Aorus x570 MINI w/ Crucial Ballistix memory. Both of my systems now have mini form factor motherboards as I like going by the principle Keep it simple stupid. The previous motherboard, memory and Ryzen 7 cpu have been given to my parents.

I have no plans to chance anything else anytime soon as my systems are both spectacular IMO, however, any future build will like be a retro revival of my old Thermaltake Kandalf with the snazzy front that someone said looked like a Soviet vacuum cleaner. That will be a ways off . System changes below. :cool:


pax Dec 25, 2019 09:32 PM

I cant even pronounce Galvbertratron...:bleh:
