    Production FormD-T1 (aka Sidearmd), READ FIRST POST

    I read you on the core, nuts that just the shroud and stuff could add 5mm?! I happen to have the old ST30 in storage right now so I was curious to tinker with that. Big thanks on correction in terminology-- I indeed mixed up Slipstream @ 12mm and Kaze flex slim @ 15mm! And cool-- I think that...

    Has anyone (looking mainly at @fabio @stanleyguan @DrHudacris since I believe I remember you three fellas mentioning these fans) tried the Scythe Kaze Flex 12mm fans on thicker radiators? I just realized I have an Alphacool ST30 lying around. Seems like it might work as my main radiator with the...

    So you *may or may not have* colluded with NVIDIA to make me actually consider the 3090 when I don't even game in 4K. You magnificent bastard! Srslytho, just wanted to check in while you're in thread to say how much joy my T1 still brings me. It's been a few months and I still look over at it...

    Production Aquanaut - Ultra Low Profile CPU + Pump Water Block

    Hey Nouvolo, I don't mean to belabor this too much but I'm also curious. If I had, for example, a Noctua Secufirm Intel mounting kit lying around, I could mount the AQ onto it right? My understanding was that the block itself is platform agnostic, but just happens to come bundled with only one...

    From other threads I follow, I believe it's Koolance QD3s: https://koolance.com/quick-disconnect-couplings-low-pressure-qd3 Selected for low flow impedance

    Are those the 12/120mm Scythe fans on that TX240? If so, most excellent! I'm hopeful for that setup myself. Looking forward to seeing if airflow / noise is sufficient! EDIT: Also Master fabio-- did you ever try out that 17mm Taobao radiator yourself? I've got one inbound..... whenever it makes...

    Nouvolo is an undercover plant for AMD, boys! Now I'm definitely going Ryzen so I don't need to swap pumps :P Hilarious jokes aside, totally understood. Thanks for confirming!

    *smacks forehead* I would miss the first message at the top of the latest page. Sigh. Thanks Huda!

    I searched a bit and couldn't seem to find confirmation, but are the AMD / Intel plates going to be available for purchase as add-ons in case I end up doing a platform switch sometime down the line?

    Oh gosh. Catching up on this thread, I saw initial plans to send a unit to OptimumTech for review. I'd... better try to get my interest posted in here before the post-OT wave of followers comes through! Been watching this once since one of our FormD T1-ers mentioned it in thread there a couple...

    I feel like I'm missing one from the subreddit, but this is the only one I could find in recent posts. I could have sworn there was a second.

    Didn't Steve say something about the outer shroud providing some benefit to channeling airflow, though? Forgive me if I'm misremembering-- I haven't watched that teardown since before release madness seized my entire being

    Woof. Given the past 24 hours, consider me very nervous about any surprises EK has with regard to the FE blocks 🙃 Your initial thoughts about clearances already fill me with glee (we'll see if I have use yet for those crazy slim Scythe 120s I ordered), and I know I'm not alone in eagerly...

    Well that's a shame, Stanley my guy. I was really starting to like you, but now we are mortal enemies. Seriously though, I'm super glad you of all folks got an order through. I trust your tinkering abilities to suss out the feasibility of different second-radiator configs. Any specific plans on...

    What?! Where are the @DrHudacris edition modifications? Bastards Hilarious jokes aside, that's awesome! I almost wonder if I'd rather have the outlets at the top still though to gain some more length for stuffing rad, res/pump, etc. But I do love the changed approach due to the funky Ampere...
