    You'll have to let us know how you get on with it matey if or when you try it :) @John Naylor I've found the block I'll be using for my GPU in the future custom loop, downloaded the instruction manual for it, for those wondering it's EK-FC970 GTX ACX - Acetal+Nickel

    Thanks again John :) I only just cottoned on that directon was a link to get the Shin Etsu, I thought it was a review for the stuff albeit the website doesn't work for me, I used the PC Partpicker link you showed which lead me to amazon for the cheapest one :D I'll have a look at that Gelid...

    Thanks matey, that looks pretty decent, will have to have that on my wish list for now, when I get it and use it I'll let you know how I feel about it :) Thanks for the article I'll give it a read shortly :) I definitely agree on AS5 though I've not took too much time to see if it gets more...

    CPU Cooling and pasting upgrade recommendations

    I agree 100% with that there, which is why I'm giving both Shin Etsu and MX-4 a try so I can see if I like them better than AS5 :) Although I'll get these 2 first then MX-4 after, trialling both Shin Etsu and MX-4 first :) Haha that sounds daunting :D I've not personally got a leaf blower nor...

    Haha no way, I was more than out the loop for sure and I'm shocked I've never once even considered that they would attempt to make any thermal pastes too! Haha, the wait got too long? :D I'm going to be ordering myself some Shin Etsu and AS5 tonight, quite possibly going to order a Scythe too...

    I've been here and there, long story short had to move, still around the same area but in my own little place, had a lot of family issues that needed to be addressed and for the most part I went in to a recluse mode as I needed a break from all the drama that was lingering around haha! So to cut...

    Haha I like your thoughts on a clean system to make haters hate more, in truth I used to always regularly clean my rig, these past few years, I've not done much in terms of keeping up to date with the stuff coming out or keeping on top of my systems health and cleanliness. I really dropped a...

    Thanks eidairaman1 :) I've seen MX4 before, never used it though as always went with AS5 haha! I might give this a whirl this time and see how it goes :) I've also been browsing a few of the threads here and some I've seen floating about are the Cryorig H7 series, they look pretty decent, I...

    Thanks for the reply MrGenius, I'll go download those applications after posting this message to you two, with you saying you was recommending Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut I'm guessing you're retracting that in the comment from the way I'm reading it and suggesting to go with AIT Cool-Silver G4? I'm...

    WC suggestions for CPU please =)

    Thanks Gorbaz! I'm definitely not doing dual CPU and quad GPU, way over my budget and I'm not that ballsy! :laugh: I think I'll go down custom loop instead, I feel more comfortable with that (since I have past experience with it) as opposed to AIO =) Thanks for the quick response and the...

    WC suggestions for CPU please =)

    Hey guys and gals! I've currently got a thread up in the system builders advice section on my project that I'm working on, I've changed a few things there but not updated the post in relation to my updates earlier though. Current parts can be found here on PC Part Picker. I've been suggested...

    i7 build advice needed, missing parts! Help appreciated :)

    Hey guys and gals! :) I've sent a few emails out about the Swiftech H220-X to some of the resellers in the UK, all of which got back to me with a similar response of with the fact that the item is not on their website they can't tell me when they would have it in stock and apologies sent for...

    i7 build advice needed, missing parts! Help appreciated :)

    Thanks for the tip mate, I was considering draining their system and using my own. I'm really grateful for your suggestions of EK and Mayhems, I've had a scan on both and I really like the idea of EK's "Blood" so I think I'm going to go for that personally! <3 --Lee

    Thanks guys, I have had read the whole article and it looks really pleasing, I think I'll go with this then considering the fact it's also expandable! =) Any tips on additives (colour) since I'm after a bright redish look if possible. :) --Lee

    i7 build advice needed, missing parts! Help appreciated :)

    Hey guys and gals! I'm going to start ordering parts soon and I was mulling over the cooling for the CPU, I was originally going to go with the AIO Corsair H110 Hydro CPU Cooler but I've actually changed my mind and I'm going to have chosen parts instead. I was thinking more along the lines...

    Advent Roma 2000 Laptop Screen trouble.

    Thanks for the quick response guys! There is no inverter for this laptop Sasqui, which is why I believe it to be a cable fault since I highly doubt it is a faulty brand new screen (slim possibility at best for it to come damage). I'll be sending it back for a return, I have 7 days to get it...

    Advent Roma 2000 Laptop Screen trouble.

    Hey guys and gals! :) Been a while since I posted here concerning a problem I couldn't solve! I have a work mates laptop whose screen is completely white. My first initial thought was that the screen itself had gone, either way I tested to see if it worked on an external monitor and it did...

    How successful are the overclocks or range for the overclocks on the i7 4770K out of curiosity? I hear the Asus have the highest potential concerning boards, though I'm not 100% certain yet concerning it... I'm going to go full tower most likely as I like the full towers, something about them...

    i7 build advice needed, missing parts! Help appreciated :)

    Why would you personally say a GTX 760 is not high end? I base my own opinions on things like these more than likely differently to you which is why you might not class it as a high end card? Why would you suggest going i5 and even higher on GPU? If so what would you personally suggest? Also by...

    i7 build advice needed, missing parts! Help appreciated :)

    I understand the ending up spending more on the higher wattage PSU and can understand a little more now with the waste from the link you posted :) So other that it being a hindrance, effectively there is no performance gains/loss by having 2x4gb, that's always good to know :) I knew about the...
