    Well, build log, profession advancement... The works I guess!! :) Complete and Total Overkill part 3!!

    Until I swapped from air to water cooling the CPU, I didn't really believe the difference in noise, and I have two extra fans and the pump noise to compare to the air cooled.

    Yeah I hear you there, sure most of us are like that. My own modest setup took 9 - 10 months to complete because I was Having to get it virtually piece by piece.

    Can I suggest that you split the pictures up as well, currently they are unreadable even when zoomed 300%

    I'm hoping soon, I can grab myself some water cooling loop hardware for my 3900X.. I have the parts I'm looking at and all I need to do next is have the cash to buy them.. Man when did EK kit become so expensive?? I think it's currently £200 for a pump and res combo, along with £120 for a rad...

    AM4 backplate thread size

    yes That's what I would prefer, hand't thought of trying that way must admit, food for thought for when I upgrade the MB a bit down the line. Thanks, that is Def worth looking into.

    The trouble with that is that there is Very little 'wriggle-room' with this particular motherboard, you can see in this picture that the bolts are right on the extreme of the mounting slots on the block. I have no idea if this is true with other MBs, or if it is only true for x470 or Just my...

    For me it fitted the Gigabyte X470 Gaming 7 wifi perfectly. My problem was that I found it fiddly as hell to get it all together (i have disabilities, so I am at a disadvantage for anything awkward to fit). I did a dry run and it fitted just fine with some titanium bolts that I found on eBay...

    yeah i know, just didnt want to lose 3 USB's. if I can figure out a way to sort the front I/O I'll likely get some header to USB connectors and run them out of the back of the MB or something. I'm not happy with them but as my mobility etc is taking a hit right now I've not got round to doing...

    oh those are my work around for the time being. My case is a Thermaltake view 71 and on the front I/O it has 2 x USB 2.0 and 2 x USB 3.0. I have 2 USB 3 headers on the MB and didnt want to lose the extra 2 USB 3 ports and the USB 3.1, so just bought some quick pcie slot type and fitted them in...

    They are pretty much the same thing from what I can see, both do the same thing anyway. All I can say ATM is that with a room temp of 26C and just with general desktop usage, I never see the GPU temp go above 32C. Mine is a 2070 super and when I was on windows and using it i saw a high of about...

    Be aware that the EVGA solution will Only work on EVGA models though, as they switch their pins around so I'm told. I have the Seasonic Prime Titanium 1000W but still went with cablemod. The neat thing with those 180 adapters is that with a vertical GPU mount, the cables literally disappear.

    One solution to those cables might be something like this, that way you can route your cables more direct. The disadvantage is that you need to buy two sets, as you get 1 up and 1 down, but they arent That expensive

    Water cooling beginnings

    Thanks, it was a little nerve racking even though I'd read a lot and asked a zillion questions, heh. The flow meter has a temp probe in it as well, so I know what's happening there. I like the case but disappointed that the front I/O only has 2 usb3 and no 3.1, hence the extra cabling in front...

    Water cooling beginnings

    For a first attempt I'm pleased at how it turned out. Obviously now looking at it, I have various thoughts about how I might have done it differently, same as any of us I'm sure. I'm not content with how the tubing crosses across the parts but unsure as yet as to how to do that differently. I...

    there seems to be only one real app being developed atm and it seems that it has a rather nasty lil habit of turning gigabyte MBs into bricks. Wanna take a wild stab in the dark as to what make My MB is? :D
