    EVGA. Most shops have them. They come in a few different sizes.


    Yep, could put another card between or move my bottom card up two slots, and the bridge would work still, too. They make a 1x-wide bridge in two sizes (for cards next to each other, or one slot apart), the double-wide triple, which works for both dual and tri configs, and the quad bridge which is obviously double-wide as well.

    No matter which bridge you need, they are all $30 each.

    My H80i decided to die last night, with an awful grinding sound. System overheated and rebooted shortly after the noise began. Upon entering the OS, I say 60c at idle...rad kinda warm, but just barely.


    Obviously the pump died. I bought the cooler December 26th...


    So, back to the H100. I think it kind of looks better, matches better, but clearly I need a real water loop here. Getting 24c idle and 57c loaded at stock under the H100.


    Anyone got ideas for which CPU block I should buy?

    H100i is an H80i with another rad, and I am just about to call Corsair to get this H80i replaced. Maybe I can ask them to upgrade me to H100i.

    @cadaveca one of the EK's supremacy (your choice of colour) would look better and a touch better performance, raystorm is great and performs well but kind of bland looking.


    edit, also would match your doms in there

    +1, nice looking block, sleek, not trying to hard to look cool, and performs exceptionally well. Also has LED's if you're into that sort of thing... I wasn't fussed

    Hmm, white LED might match nice, too. But I'm not gonna WC VGAs, just CPU.

    MX4. For 2011, I use a double-rice grain blob down the middle, and just before block/cooler cannot move, I give it a wiggle to squeeze out the excess, then tighten fully.

    didn't go nzxt huh?

    nice fans !

    itx case right now, might not end up going wooden on this because the increased size with 3/4" wood and my lack of skill with joinery. Until my skill improves my itx will be this

    [​IMG]

    Heres the few case mods I have done:
    Drive cage removed, drive is inside a cage from a Dell PowerEdge from ebay ($7 shipped). The metal had to be bent in a small vice, I used a cheater bar on the vice handle and the metal cage actually resisted enough to bend the vice's handle,
    I removed the stock drive cage to put in a 120x38mm fan and a Asetek 120mm AIO. I hope it doesn't leak in this thing, its an old salvaged cooler from a friend's rebuild job.

    New rubber feet.

    @Vario decided on the 750D after seeing the inside of the H440. Its a great case but mid tower might be too small for what i want to end up doing. I also saw it in person (the 750D) when my friends build parts came and it is a really nice looking case

    I have 4 4500RPM 38mm Nidec Beta V fans, pulled and resoldered by me after salvaging them from some Dell servers. I hope you realise how loud 38mm SP fans are...

    I hope you realise ive been using high rpm 38mm fans since 2010....................and that i have amped sennheiser HD598 headphones, so no amount of noise is going to even begin to bother me or be a distraction.

    I find 4500RPM's to be far too noisy at 50% speed, even with my over ear noise cancelling headset. Each to their own I suppose.
