    D5 pump life? Replace?

    I also got mine back in the good old days of 2005. It's ran 24/7 folding now mining for the last 8 or so. If it dies, it will likely be noisy first. Worst case your pc starts over heating and rebooting and you have to take it apart anyway. I wouldn't bother dual pumping unless you are...

    Asus AI suite 2 for Z77 boards

    This actually worked. Disabling the bios control let speedfan take over. That was super helpful, thanks. I'll miss some of the other utilities but the fan speeds were what i was looking to fix the most!

    Asus AI suite 2 for Z77 boards

    I'll try that out. Reading thru the ROG forums, there doesn't seem to be much resolution there, some ppl have posted emails saying the mobo is too old, there won't be an update.

    Asus AI suite 2 for Z77 boards

    So apparently a win10 update a few months ago borked the AI suite 2 on these older boards like my maximus V gene. I've looked around and haven't found much info on if asus is going to fix version 2 of the software, they already fixed version 3, but it won't install saying I have the wrong board...

    Been out of the WC game a while, what are the best retailers now?

    It's been 3+ years since I've had to buy anything WC related. It looks like sidewinder hasn't been getting new inventory, where should I be shopping these days? I'm in the US btw, I'd prefer not to be shipping across the pond.

    GPU water cooling worth while when upgrading every generation?

    The universal blocks have been out and about for a long time. I've got an old MCW-60 from swiftech that I'm still using. I think it's 7 years old now. Still cools my 670 better and more quietly than any air cooling solution. The only issue at this point is that the mosfets on newer cards...

    What could be wrong with my loop

    I'd agree, it's either air bubbles or gunk in one of the blocks. Properly getting the air out of top mounted rads is a pain in the butt. But with an older loop if you haven't cracked open either block to check it I'm going to lean toward gunk. I was running pentosin and distilled and(i think)...
