    Rumor PCIE 4.0 riser cables on TaoBao

    Does the 3M cable do pcie 4.0? It sure looks like the 3M cables. I have 2 from 5 years ago that have always worked, but I never tried them on a pcie 4.0 system.

    Cooling Radiator/Fan question

    I have a quick question about cooling capacity on rads. Lers say I make a case like the Corsair One where there are no fans on the rad. Only 1 exhausting out the top making negative pressure. If I have one 280 radiator with all the air going through it, would actually adding a second...

    Cooling Gentle Typhoon 92mm

    I'm not sure if they are any better than the Noctua fans. Gentle typhoons were the best 120 fans for radiators until Noctua made the nf a12x25. I only paid 4.60 usd per fan. And shipping was 35 usd for 3-6 days. Taobao link to fans

    Cooling Gentle Typhoon 92mm

    I am hoping someone might be able to help me out. I am looking at the Nidec Servo fans on Taobao. 92mm Trying to break down the product code to make sure they will work. D0925C12B4ZSA29 Z = variable speed S = lock sensor (P would be the one that would be ideal) If I have it correct, I...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme [Available] - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    Sub 40 if you used the SPC pump. Though the shortest fittings at 19mm would make the total height at 40mm. But how many cases need something that small? Lehman

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme [Available] - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    I tried a simple test with the first prototype. Stock pump top vs the pump block reverse flow through an ek supremacy coldplate. Both attached to a 15ft length of tubing. The stock pump top pushed water to just over 9.5 feet. The reverse flow through the coldplate just barely got 9 ft of...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme [Available] - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    Something to look at is the apogee drive ii. It is a reverse flow pump block. Though it has a pin based cold plate design vs the normal fins. I am not sure if it should really cause any real difference though. You will have the same amount of water flowing through the coldplate either...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme [Available] - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    My design is reverse flow. I searched high and low for any testing. The best I found was people running their EK cpu blocks with the flow reversed due to wanting a cleaner layout for tubing. Anecdotal evidence at best. But they all seem to say 1 degree c at most. I will be running an Optimus...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme [Available] - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    I definitely understand. I am building my block for this specific pump and I am running too tight of tolerance for production variances of the pumps. The big plus for using the SPC is the smaller height added to your block and the one connection to a pump header on the MB. One of my previous...

    The impeller is 39.91mm and is 3.81mm tall. Pump body is 17.75mm in height and 61.50 mm x 61.50 mm. Pump top cavity is 7.19mm deep. It grows from 43.04mm to 45.20 mm in diameter. There is a ring around the pump inlet that is 1.77mm tall. Hopefully this helps. Lehman
