    Tsumi replied to the thread 13900k + 4090 Loop capacity.
    How important is noise? The Loop Configurator is a good ballpark estimate but that's all it is. Can't find numbers on the RTX 4090, but the worst RTX 3090 namebrand blocks generally had less than 20 C delta core to water temperature, so if...

    The air won't just be coming in through the obvious gaps, it will be coming in through any and all available gaps. This means corners and crevices that you didn't even know existed could be potential spots for dust accumulation. The unfiltered...

    What do you have for your intake? Sure, you might get lower component temps, but generally peripheral temps suffer as a result. Additionally, with negative case pressure, dust tends to build up in all the nooks and crannies of the case. Positive...

    I disagree on this. I regularly let my coolant get 5-10 degrees over ambient, but it's far quieter than it would be with air coolers (essentially silent) and is still running at lower temps than it would be on air. Doing it per your specs means I...

    God, I wish Amazon would drop like that. Gee, thanks, so you're the type person have to hide my online profile from. Glad I don't post my face online and suspended my FB account til I can get a job. I hate it when employers check profiles, you...

    Awwwwww, love you too. I'm just glad I was able to end up making a thread that might actually be useful to someone. I don't know if you guys have noticed, but the internet sort of sucks for this kind of stuff these days. All the good old hits...

    Yes, it had a 2.73:1 with a .7 overdrive giving it an overall gear ratio of ~1.9. The manual had a 3.45 with a .5 overdrive giving it an overall of ~1.7. Flip that around to the first gear, and the automatic had a 3.059 first gear for an overall...

    With the C5 (and other GM vehicles using the T56 series of transmissions), the rear end gear ratio is higher to compensate for the high overdrive. The reason the C5 manual got better mileage than the C5 automatic was because of the 4 speed...

    It's not so much how much you emit but what you emit. You can emit as much CO2 as you want, I mean people do drive SUV's after all, but if you start emitting NOx then you fail inspection. NOx is only created when you use less fuel and more air...

    From the article: At minimum a tune will be needed. I would totally be onboard with this if they're able to get tunes out for older cars.

    Large AIOs can certainly compete with custom watercooling setups, but custom setups offer much more flexibility. Also large AIOs approach the cost of entry level watercooling, especially the good AIOs. I've always said this, from a...

    Tsumi replied to the thread WC’ing blocks for MEM..
    Anything that puts things in series increases restriction. You will need a distribution method that puts things in parallel, but then flow balancing can be an issue. If one path has double the restriction of the other path, it'll get half the...

    Went for it and just upgraded my 4930k to an E5-1680 V2. Using only quick stability tests, I'm able to run it at 4.4 ghz on stock volts, a 200 mhz improvement over the 4930k. 2 additional cores and an additional 200 mhz is pretty good for $70...
