    push/pull rad, worth it?

    Hi! I have a triple rad and I wonder if adding 3 more fans below to it would make a difference. Somewhere I read that pump speed is much, but very much more important than rad fans speed or quantity. I have spare fans so it's not a cost problem, but it makes my build more complex. I'd also...

    Which EK pump is better?

    Just received the watercooling kit. Cool stuff these EK parts.... Horrified I find that instead of the part "EK-DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition (Square) Pump" I get a (round) "Revo D5". The first one is a separated pump and the second a round one. So my build would change.... I thought the DDC was...

    Remove fixed fan cable from Corsair h80i GT pump

    Want some modding? I just received this cooler and the idea of having an extra Y-cable in my setup, that I will not use and cannot unplug, makes me wonder if i can remove it. It is a Y-splitter cable that comes out of the pump, for connecting your cooler fans (not the CPU pump!). I am going to...

    Fanatec Porsche GT3RS V.2 wheel + G27 pedals workaround

    I will post this just to help potential victims of poor drivers by Fanatec. I lost hours and days!!!! Based on their sales statements, you should be able to plug G27 pedals into the wheel unit and race along! Doing this, in my case, the pedals were ON/OFF buttons, not analogue axis, so driving...
