    Thermalright Frost Spirit CPU Cooler Pictured: Dual Fin-stack Monstrosity

    Assembled my earlier pc in 2011 or so. It would be nice see how those older cpu heatsinks compared to these new modern ones. I had Prolimatech Megahalems rev B and (with mb:s auto) overclocking the 2600k to about 4.3MHz was a breeze. I'm just curious. :):)

    Alphacool Eisbaer 240LT maximum cooling capacity?

    No i'm not. I'm just wondering will my aio be enough for these new cpus. My rad is pushing hot air out. And two fans pushing fresh air in. This is my diy itx case atm: https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/work-log-diy-itx-case-aka-ikea-case.250631/ Everything is working now.

    DRM, the discussion continues...

    I can see that this thread is mostly gaming related, but i'm so happy that they don't make audio cds with drm anymore. Bought a few cds for my son about 15 years ago. Tried to play them with my pc. One of them had really bad quality mp3s (or similar) and messed up my windows, one just broke my...

    Alphacool Eisbaer 240LT maximum cooling capacity?

    Hi, I'm planning to update my cpu sometime in next spring or summer. I tried to find more info with Google, but it didn't help. I'm currently using Ryzen 1800X and temperatures and noice is good. But what about new Ryzens, 3800X - 3950X? There's no room for bigger AIO, and I can't afford...

    Zen2, impossible update?

    So, I have this AsRock x370 itx motherboard (1800X). It is said, that it cannot support new 2 gen ryzens. They're in the supported cpu lists at AsRock website. So, is it possible? I know, no PBO in use, but will it work? Like 3800X- 3950? I have modded my vrm heatsink...

    [work log] Diy itx case, aka ikea case

    I have no place to fix/adjust/make new pieces for my hw. Bought a new ssd few weeks ago, mx500/2TB. What a drive! But! I haven't been able to connect my nas, where my photos are. Thou, I loaned my little 4G server to my son few months ago. Direct connection seems impossible at this time. Time...

    Sleep / monitor off not working

    Thanks, i'll try it tomorrow! Boot boot, booty boot! Checked those power options earlier yesterday, it didn't make a difference. But for reasons unknown to me, my monitor now shuts down (after i went to a bar and passed away in a bush), but not the computer. And i have no external devices...

    Well, i can't say anything about you guys, but i've been waiting watercoolers for something else than just the top gpus. I surely hope this phenomena to continue.

    [work log] Diy itx case, aka ikea case

    Fixed those damn fan profiles in bios. I can still hear it easily, but now it's (really) silent enough for my needs. El-cheapo power meter shows me 53 - 59W while idling. YT playing and FB in the background, it's about 57 - 60W. During Furmark (basic settings, 1920x1200) 230 - 240W, Prime95...

    Thanks! I built it mostly for Photoshop, my five year old mbpro doesn't have enough power anymore. Lightroom works perfectly, tho. My favorite hobby is photgraphing and i haven't been able to practice ps properly. I'll be also using it for circuit simulation (lt Spice), fl-studio, 3d print...

    [work log] Diy itx case, aka ikea case

    Got some accessories yesterday, i might have some free hours later today. That cheap fan controller is for testing only, i still haven't figured out how to control them all. From bios, maybe. The pump is quite silent, but there's a lot of background noises at my work. If cooling performance is...

    [work log] Diy itx case, aka ikea case

    No pictures this time, sorry... Front fans, bottom plate with rubber feets and psu are now on their places. The balance is little of, as most of the heavy components are on the back side, leaving the front "almost floating". If I have enough time and motivation, I might move it to the front.

    Had some extra time and tried with real components. Next time (If there will be) I must take proper measurements. I haven't noticed, that the cpu coolers support thingy is quite thick and the riser cable have no room left. And I may have a problem with dvd drive. Well, I have to wait until...
