    Seeing someone else with an XFX DD makes me shudder. I feel sorry for the people who invested, me having done so 3 times. Worst GPU's I've ever owned :laugh:

    Not mine, my sister's. The case is terribly small, with next to no options of cable management, but I still feel I did okay

    This is true the fans are fugly, but I don't think it looks all that bad really. Yeh it is pricey for the performance but originally I was after a short heatsink that didn't take up much room on the mobo so it would remain easy to operate on for my colleague's PC which has next to no clearance, barely enough for the u9b. If I were to buy another heatsink, that Cryorig R1 Universal or Be Quiet Dark Rock (Pro) 3 would be my choice but hey, I'm happy with it so why change :) Also the build quality, packaging and materials are seriously amazing on Noctua's stuff so can't complain.

    Swapped the processor in my desktop with a QX6700 over the Q6600. Have it running at 3.2 GHz stable, had it at 3.46 stable before I put the other 2 gig stick back in; overclocking doesn't mix well with mix-n-match ram. I do still hate how Antec decided to put the PSU cable runs in the center rather than against the the right side but I'm too lazy to cut a new hole.

    I did find out that my surprisingly decent cheap nSpire PSU shares the same internals with the Thermaltake W0163RU power supply except the fan. Both are OEMed by CWT and both have the same components on the board except mine has a Rubycon main cap and the only picture I can find of the Thermaltake has a Hitachi.

    I like it so much I am selling my own LGA 2011 stuff and keeping these. Free 4790K + MVIIF vs. 500 euro in 3930K + RIVF? Not so hard call. :)

    Sexy as fuck!

    Now you need to put the CPU and that Kingpin on water cooling.

    I change hardware more often than socks.
    It literally wouldn't even get wet before I would have to drain the loop! Kingpin is one mad overclocker even with stock cooler. Was benching for a moment at 1400 MHz GPU. On air. Currently stock cooling first on HWBOT Fire Strike. :)

    Well hello there Mr. Haswell-E... ;)

    At stock its quiet although very much audible. Shouldn't be any problem to anyone. Under more OC it starts to get pretty loud fast. Definitely not the best cooler out there, but its OK.

    Compared to lets say stock cooler of R9 290X its like whisper in the forest. Very pleasant air flow sound mostly.

    lol :p thanky you man !

    Yes with this case, I want to mount a 3x120mm radiator with fans on top only push config.

    The fan controller can power a maximum of 3 fans the rest of the fans PWM is connected to the motherboard.

    I already have the waterblock for the CPU (Black Nickel Heatkiller Rev 3.0), the pump (Phobya 260) and the red hose (13/10mm), radiator si the Phobya g-changer 360 v.2.

    I just have to decide what to order for the GPU waterblock.

    The water will be the normal distilled water, I want to avoid deposits or stains on waterblocks.

    Then you'll see the location of the pump and how to mount the radiator ecc...

    I will update with more photos here. :toast:



    Thank you PACMAN ! Happy to help you !


    To everybody help me wich waterblock to get for the GTX 780 ti :D

    Consider :

    The GPU waterblock will be not visible
    I will use distilled water
    All of them performs the same only aestetics changes.
    I can mount a backplate to all

    Wow with that glass panel...That is beyond beautiful! I really like that case, might I inquire as to what it is because I am not familiar with it.

    you make me want to take a 904 ... awwww i love those cases from InWin .... the 90X serie and specially the Tòu but the last one is a bit ... over expensive... bahahah
    very creative way to put a fan controller btw... :D

    hint on next week upgrade : I K Z A.
    take a guess!


    edit, sunny side up: where i live and the R9 290 is listed at or under 770 prices ... and all my retailer show it... meanwhile the 280X is listed on par with the 760 prices ... woohoo (nV should really lower price now ... specially with the "soon to be here" 880)
