Here it is, the used GTX 1070 FE I ordered:

View attachment 224922

I only paid... 400 USD for it. :fear:...Yeah, I probably won't be keeping the card knowing that it burned a hole that big in my pocket...

I haven't decided yet, but I'll probably just flip the 1070 so that I can get my money back. In the meantime, I want to enjoy gaming on a laptop by installing this card in my newly-acquired Razer eGPU enclosure.
ouch, that's only ~126$ less than what my own MSI GTX 1070 Armor OC 8G did cost when i got her (launch year)

My loop has been running for a couple of months now, water only, no additives or colour, and its still perfectly clear, i'm using EK 10/16 black tubing though.
This basic PVC tubing is cheap, 2.90EUR per metre. That's why I prefer that :laugh:

Their testing protocol is supposed to be insane so in all likelihood it would be a very reliable TV though I have no idea about f specs of feature set you will have to let us know how you get on with it.
Has support for free sync and Gsync, works well so far, dislike android TV and the various ADs used in the interface so i have a mini-PC setup that handles those duties instead. Currently waiting for christmas / black friday deals to get a set of Edifier R1850DB speakers hook them up via (optical) and a separate subwoofer to handle audio duties.

I used to use clear, but it always ended up cloudy, so figured can't see it with black tubing :laugh:
Exactly that! I've used EK and another brands tubing but it always turned cloudy after a few months. No more clear for me, just ZMT and I'm done :D

ZMT is brilliant. Not the easiest to cut, and you won't get tight bend radii, but clean, good looking, never kinks, and doesn't get (visibly) dirty.

Wasn't going to wait indefinitely for Seasonic's undoubtedly overpriced SFX Plat units, so back to Corsair with the SF750. It helps that I can interchange stock, stock sleeved and Cablemod sets with my old SF600 Gold. Not overly impressed with Seasonic on the SGX-650.

Excuse the xiaomi camera quality

I actually think of pipe swaps as a chance to take some muck out,, flush etc.
I agree to a certain extent. The coolant can be used for longer and in my case draining the loop takes some time. I might be off by a bit, but if I recall correctly it's about 2l or more hahaha. So that with the tubing and coolant that totals to around 40 euro per swap, that's 80 euro saved a year :D
ZMT is brilliant. Not the easiest to cut, and you won't get tight bend radii, but clean, good looking, never kinks, and doesn't get (visibly) dirty.
I use a very large Kizer sheepdog blade XL for cutting the stuff, a sharp blade goes a long way ;) But you're right, it isn't the easiest when compared to regular tubing. Bending the ZMT hasn't been an issue for me so far, but I do use the rather thicker 10/16 stuff which makes it easier.

Different locations have different water quality - and different things swimming in them
My tap water here leaves brown residue behind on my sinks and shower, for example... i dont want that gunking up a loop.

Not tap water :S its fresh deionised water from a sealed bottle. No one would put tap water in their loop would they? I have been water cooling for years and would never do that. I have been on TPU for years and am shocked you would think i would use tap water.

I thought Normal desktop usage would be more difficult and did have a backup plan for a secondary monitor if so but it took maybe 10m to get use to..... I have a dual monitor secondary pc setup for any work I need to do regardless. I sit about 8 feet from it while gaming watching video seems to work perfectly.

Official? The key might be suspect. Are you sure it wasn't a "volume" key?

nope. i have a receipt about the purchase and a taxnumber.

and the name of the reseller and his company

on the other hand; i really do not care what the arabs do in the rest of the time.

none of my business - EU and closer East are different parts of the world. even in law.
Guys sry for the off-topic again but i think it is kinda important to close the topic then without doubts or uncertainties in law.

I wanted to add a little something, so that outsiders reading this on the forum don't get the impression that illegal software deals are being promoted here! of course, everyone has to obey the laws of the state in which they reside.

You can check your license by the following to be done:
Determine the license type of your Microsoft Office product - Office 365 | Microsoft Docs

Screenshot 2021-11-13 053508.png
my license

According to that we are in Germany or in the EU quite liberal and the courts tend to side with the consumers.
Here is another ruling on the OEM issue:

In most cases, the sale of OEM software is only permitted under licensing law in conjunction with hardware. In Germany, such a ban has been declared invalid by the courts for a dealer not bound by a contract - OEM versions are usually upgradeable or updatable.

In other words, when a customer buys a new PC together with a pre-installed OEM version, he pays much less than if he buys the same PC and a normal retail version of the same software separately. Even if he first buys only the hardware and then the software from the same dealer a short time later, he is no longer entitled to the cheaper OEM version. Microsoft calls its OEM versions OSB, which stands for OEM for System Builder or SB(V) (System Builder (Version)). However, the OEM and SB versions differ only slightly in the rights granted.

According to a ruling by the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) on 6 July 2000, dealers in Germany are also allowed to sell OEM versions without being tied to hardware. Thus, OEM versions can also be purchased without hardware. The Microsoft company had sued against this and lost. Thus, OEM versions are legally available separately. Microsoft itself or the distributors sell the System Builder versions of Windows and Office only to special contractual partners of Microsoft. In corresponding contracts, the System Builder undertakes to install these versions only on new PCs and not to sell them separately. For each individual System Builder version, the dealer must provide Microsoft with proof of sale. These contracts were introduced in response to the BGH ruling, and they are not affected by this ruling, nor are these special System Builder versions. Since the layperson cannot distinguish these special System Builder versions (OSBs) from "normal" System Builder versions (Non-OSB), the purchase is legal, but the sale by a Microsoft contract partner is not.

its german. Microsoft lost. read small text above.

So It can therefore be assumed that if the highest German court handed down this ruling 20 years ago, it is also in conformity with European law and is also valid in other member states.

Yes as I've stated most of the time when I show purchased keys, licences are handled very differently here in Asia it's untested for me as it stands if my copy of windows will even work in the uk.

I buy my keys all from Asia e-commerce outlets and receive OEM stickers with each key which although are not authentication, prove to a degree that the keys aren't just being taken from yet unsold OEM systems.

The simple truth for me is I only use windows out of laziness and would not pay MSRP in any western country for a copy, if it was my only choice I would just move to Linux.

Would need more test but initial tests beat my old Cyrorig H7 and COrsair H60 push pull (2x noctua fans on both). Old coolers would reach 85C+ and clocks all core would drop to 4.3Ghz at times. Now max ive had so far was 80C but clocks are at 4.5 to 4.7 All core on a 5800X
