It's funny how far we have come in the last 50 yrs. Took a computer with less power than an apple watch to operate the space program and now we have mapped and can rewrite the human gnome.
Ok 2 thingsIt's funny how far we have come in the last 50 yrs. Took a computer with less power than an apple watch to operate the space program and now we have mapped and can rewrite the human gnome.
I was just commenting on how far we have come as a civilization. It's great, can't wait to see what the next 50 yrs holdsOk 2 things
1) i built my original computer at the launch of the 900 series when i was absolutely dirt poor in college and bought a kit from tiger direct that didn't have a GPU and then bought a 970 and threw it in there. turns out my PSU was just 80+, not even bronze and literally all the noise in my computer was coming from my PSU fan until now. literally gaming with the sf750 is quieter than my windows log in screen was with my old psu. this is absurd.
2) my 970 needs 14 pins of power. Can i do this as shown here or does it need to come from 2 different leads on my PSU. it seems to be working just fine, my tiger direct PSU just had a 8 pin and a 6pin that came out of the PSU separately so i'd like to double check
Anyone has a suggestion for a semi low-profile rotary 90 degree fittings that will work with the Nouvolo block in 3 slots mode? The ones I have now will sit flushed with the panel, but with the addition of the EKWB Torque compression fittings, they will be 2mm overflowed :c
I actually have a couple of these on the way, but I don't think they will clear the EKWB Torque fittings from hitting the block.
NVM, seems pretty unlikely. Looks like the Strix is almost 2mm longer than the Zotac, and there's not much space b/w the PCI-E bracket and the backplate:@Wahaha360 My 318mm long Zotac Trinity 3080 barely fits in terms of length and my 140mm MSI 1080 barely fits in terms of width, so hopefully the 318.5 x 140.1 Strix will fit.

You might need 180-degree PCI-E adapters to deal with the width of thee Strix and some PCI-E bracket modding to deal with the length
Nice sanding there! I have the TX240, A12x15 and A12x25 on hand so that presents me 3 options
Sanded down my A12x15 using 80 grit sandpaper. They are now less than 13mm in height (took away ~1.5mm on the intake side and ~1mm exhaust side). Took me about an hour for each fan.
How are the temps? And versus your previous setup too! At this rate you might need a dedicated thread just like Fabio hahaI spent a few hours tinkering yesterday.
Noctua 25mm and the 17mm rad fits under my motherboard (just). The side rad has 15mm noctua so team coffee and cream all round.
Check for the classic Koolance 90 degrees.I actually have a couple of these on the way, but I don't think they will clear the EKWB Torque fittings from hitting the block.
Im still building, cutting and routing tubing. I sometimes regret moving to hard tubing, given I change my loop so much. Still got a good half day of work to get it finished.How are the temps? And versus your previous setup too! At this rate you might need a dedicated thread just like Fabio haha
