    First time Watercooling???

    I recommend the D5. Ive used both and I find the D5 to be near silent. I use an XSPC pump top reservoir. Very compact. I have seen no value in premix fluids. I have used distilled water and silver coils and had no issues with my blocks, pumps, compression fittings or radiators. Also no...

    Seems like I will need a new water pump soon. Recommendations?

    I looked. All 3 of my D5s are Swiftech and are/were made in Hungary. I think thats the OEM.

    Seems like I will need a new water pump soon. Recommendations?

    Isnt the D5 made all by 1 company anyway? Cant recall but somewhere European. I have 3 Swiftech D5 varios, maybe 12 or 13 years old, all humming along just fine. I use a Bitspower top on all of them.

    How many % of system builder uses Non transparent water cooling tubes

    Second the flow meter. Ive always used either black or white primochill tubing. So..... theres a little turbulence in the reservoir You cant "see" flow after the loop equilibrates anyway. Answer: flowmeter or blind faith Ive always chosen blind faith. The Swiftech pump will outlive me.

    Heatkiller 3.0 and S1700

    Thank you. I indeed looked through their website. I even sent a support request in last week but Ive not heard back . I know that my current AM4 kit will fit AM5, but I cant find anything regarding S1700 backward compatibility. My Heatkiller 3.0 are solid blocks. Ive had them since they were...

    Heatkiller 3.0 and S1700

    Im considering using my Heatkiller 3.0 on a new build with a S1700 Intel cpu. ie gen 13 or 14 Intel. I cant find anywhere that says yes or no to being able to use the S115x hardware. I dont see any adapter kits anywhere. Maybe it cant be done?

    WTB: 5800x3d

    I just upgraded from a 5700X to the X3D. Its adding about 10% to FPS in some games. I am disappointed it cant OC. I looked for over 2 weeks for a used one, no dice. If you really want a new one, because the used price will be close to new. Alternatively, the 5800X is cheaper, and...

    MSI Afterburner Dead? What Will You Use Going Forward?

    As far as I understand it, msi is running the software now, not unwinder, due to the various embargos and sanctions.

    MSI Afterburner Dead? What Will You Use Going Forward?

    Update may unlock voltage control on some cards, although I have not seen much of that in the 4000 series. The voltage seems locked in the BIOS. I have seen a few cards with higher power limits depending on the OC software. That being said, the days of crazy high OC without mods or LN are...
