  1. No it isn't PWM but since using my pwm pump thus far I discovered that I prefer to have manual control. I'm currently manually adjusting through my mobo anyway. I was wondering if I could use the Reeven four eyes and abandon the PWM function without having to get a different pump.
  2. I think i need a fan controller now I'm looking at http://www.performance-pcs.com/reeven-four-eyes-touch-fan-controller-black.htmlwill I be able to control the PWM version of the MCP655 pump I ended up getting with the fan controller?
  3. What would the difference between this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20911/ex-rad-634/Koolance_Triple_120mm_Copper_High_Flow_Radiator_-_30_FPI_-_Black_HX-360XC_No_Nozzles_.html?id=q2h9Wtw5&mv_pc=1346and the aphcool I linked at the top be? I cant seem to find any FPI info on the alphacool. edit: meant to say I could find info on the FPI of the Alphacool lol.
  4. I looking at EK becuase there arent many full blocks in stock out there with clear tops for 980's. I want clear for the aesthetics and so I can see if air bubbles get trapped during bleeding.
  5. I was looking at these fittings http://www.performance-pcs.com/monsoon-free-center-compression-fittings-1-2-x-3-4-six-pack-green.html Why is that?
  6. Would like to add that I've been planning my layout and having a tough time deciding which way I should run my loop. Currently thinking about doing Res>>pump>>Gpus(using a parallel bridge)>>3x120mmx60mmrad>>CPU>>1x120mmx60mmrad>> Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
  7. I'm diving into water cooling and would like some input on what I have chosen to use for my setup. My goals for doing this are achieving better performance, temps, overclock-ability, aesthetics and the joy of just putting it all together and making it work. Looking for any and all advice/opinions regarding choice of components. Suggestions on layout or anyone with experience WCing in my case or its individual components. Specs and my current choices for parts below.

Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the replies. Will my I5 2500k be a bottleneck for the cards much?
  9. Looking to hear any and all tips for calibrating your monitors. What tools you have used and what worked best. Currently looking to Calibrate an LED monitor the ASUS VG248QE anyone with experience calibrating it?
  10. Ok would my current setup bottle neck the GPU's at all? What kinda hardware would it take to achieve 144 hz and FPS or get close to it.
  11. I'm recieving 3 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236313 and 2 of http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487079&cm_re=980-_-14-487-079-_-Product as gifts. I would like to take advantage of Nvidia surround and get as close to 144 fps as possible. Is what I have sufficient or is my CPU, Mobo or anything else going to hold me back?

  12. Will the corsair 1500's being USB negate my Sound card? Nvm already know the answer to that lol.
  13. Yeah I've had the X-11's for a year now, it's a solid set. I also have the DSS or "digital input thing" but is currently and somewhat perma attached to my xbox. I totally agree with the bass response on the X-11's. They make the DSS's bass boost pretty pointless. I am in the market for a second headset so I don't have to keep moving the spiders web of cords every time I switch between comp and Xbox. I'll look at the Corsair set you mentioned Angel. Did I mention OCC rocks?
  14. The Xonar seems like a perfect fit, thanks! Gonna be using Turtle Beach X11's on it. Nothing fancy.
  15. Not looking for anything fancy or expensive but for a sound card that will take the audio's load off the cpu while giving me good sound through a mid-range headset. At most I'd like some stereo to Surround Sound emulation. Could any of you offer some suggestions?
  16. The Raven has me interested. The built in 2.5 bays for SSD's and the exhausting through the top all sounds cool. I love the Idea of it but all my cords coming out of the top, I don't know if I like it or not lol.
  17. Quality then cooling in that order for importance. The last thing I want is to break the darn thing trying to put my first build in quite a few years together then have to wait longer for a replacement. I'll look them over thanks for the links.
  18. The i5 became available again Monday evening. I promptly snagged one for $225 which is still good. Another Question: The COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Full tower case has mostly good reviews and I'm pretty set on it but a few of the reviews mention the way below standard quality of the top USB ports. I know for a fact these will get alot of use from me and it is a concern. Wondering if you guys have any personal experience with the case and can shed more light on those questionable ports or any other part of the case.
  19. A little OC maybe, a serious one most likely not. Noise shouldn't be a problem with my noise-cancelling headset aslong as it cant get through that I'll be pleased. Thank you all for your hospitality and input so far. I'm feeling really good about this setup just hope that i-5 becomes available...
  20. Ok I'll be watching for the i-5 to be in stock over the next 2 weeks till I decide to submit my order.
  21. I was looking at this fan and heatsink combo Newegg and I've got a tube of Arctic 5 lying around.
  22. Yeah I put those on there instead. What do think about getting a Core i7 2600K for $270 at microcenter with the money saved on the 1gb vid cards. I can't go wrong with that can I?
  23. Been going back n forth with that and I was looking at those exact cards in particular but they are out of stock at Newegg. Yeah thats the max my 23 inch does I'm perfectly satisfied with it. The i-5 2500k is out of stock at microcenter = / With the 60 bucks saved from getting 1gb vidcards I could get a Core i7 2600K LGA 1155.
  24. Made these changes. The i-5 2500k is out of stock at Newegg but Amazon has it for 30 bucks more which isn't to bad. I could save about 60 more bucks by getting 1gb gfx cards but its a small amount to oay and get double the ram in the cards.
