    Ohhh, this will be a fun one. Here are my questions:
     
    What are your thoughts on all this RGB now becoming part of water cooling industry?? Are you guys going to jump in it as well?
    What do you like better - Hardline or Softline builds?

    jassilamba got a reaction from bungwirez in Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered Glass Edition Review   
    Car manufacturers give face lifts to their older car models, to attract new buyers. Well, Phanteks has done something similar to the new improved Enthoo Luxe. The Luxe Tempered Glass edition is a “face lift edition”, and this small change has made a great little improvement. A lot of case makers have joined the tempered glass trend, that was started by In-Win. But, I feel Phanteks is starting to take that, to the next level. I have to say that I’m so happy to see a hinged glass panel on a case. This makes me less worried about dropping the glass panel on the floor and watching it break. The Luxe as a case, is the perfect sized case for folks that plan on running some serious hardware. It allows you to hold ample amount of hardware, cooling, and storage devices without making any compromises at all. The added tempered glass panel creates a nice view inside your case, and unlike acrylic, it does not attract dust or is easily scratched. The smoked glass panel is perfect, and it’s not a cheap thin piece of glass either. ..........

    jassilamba got a reaction from nickbaldwin86 in In Win 909 Full Tower Review   
    Our own Captain Currysauce (Jesse) checks out the new brushed aluminum and tempered glass InWin 909!
     
    The InWin 901 and 904 were great looking cases. Perfect for someone who wanted to create a nice system using your standard, over the counter cooling solutions. InWin has now released the 909, a full tower version, based on the same design we have seen in the 901 and the 904. The case is precision made using aluminum and tempered glass panels, that help you create a powerful build without making any sacrifices. The case features a very unique interior layout, that allows you to mount up to a 360mm radiator in the back of the case, allowing you to create a very clean looking interior, without sacrificing any room for any other items in the case.

    jassilamba got a reaction from CarnageHimura in NZXT Noctis 450 Mid Tower Case Review.   
    The first NZXT Phantom holds a very special place in my heart, as it was my very first case for my first real computer.

    So, what happens when you take the NZXT H440, and mate it with the NZXT Phantom? You get the NZXT Noctis 450. A case that takes two very successful designs, and blends them together to create what should be yet another NZXT success story. The Noctis 450 features a very bold design, that is not just designed for form, but function as well. One of the major improvements the new case makes over the H440, is support for better water cooling gear. Plus, a much greater ventilated surface area, that will provide for a much better thermal results for your build. The case shares the same basic internal design as the H440, so you have an idea as to what to expect. For the external design, the case borrows the good looks of the Phantom line of cases.

    jassilamba got a reaction from fsozyheuac in Water Cooling Review: Mayhems Havoc 240 Radiator   
    Jesse AKA Captain CurrySauce, takes a look at the brand new Havoc 240 radiator by Mayhems. Does this new radiator stand out from all the existing radiator crowd?
     
     


     
     
     
     
    Mayhems has been the provider of the best dyes and fluids in the watercooling industry. It came as no surprise when Mayhems announced their own line of 120mm based radiators. The Havoc series has been in the making for quite a while and has generated some buzz. It’s great to not just have more choices, but to have a new addition to the radiator market from a big name as Mayhems.

    The Mayhem Havoc radiators have some unique features that I still have yet to witness in other radiators. From the flow path to fin design there are some interesting things to look here. For this review we are going to look at the Havoc 240 radiator. Given the popularity of small builds thanks to the Parvum cases, I think a 240 radiator review is great test for performance.

    Mayhems has also raised the bar high when it comes to value for money. The radiators come with a nice acrylic Havoc Rad Grill, a Mayhems Blitz cleaning kit (part 2), enough Mayhems XT1 concentrate to make 2 liters of coolant, and a lifetime warranty; all that at a price of around $75.15 makes it a great deal. In other words, you get a lot of bang for your buck.

    jassilamba got a reaction from fsozyheuac in Case Review: Azza Z Mini ITX Case review   
    Jesse aka Captain CurrySauce takes a look at Azza's first mini itx case in the market.



    Azza has been making cases for a while now, and finally now they have a mini ITX case in the market. Azza designed the case to be very small, and yet allow it to hold a full size ATX power supply. The Z from Azza allows you to install a mini ITX motherboard, and GPUs up to 10.5" long.

    With a price tag of $54.99 at the time of the review, the Azza Z is a great case. It even includes a PCIe riser card that allows you to mount your GPU or any other PCI device. Also included is a free floating stand that you can use, or not use as desired.

    Just like every other Azza case, the design is pretty bold and bright. With a foot print of only 13.5" X 4.4" X 17.3 (H X W X D), it’s one of the smallest Mini ITX cases that supports a full size ATX power supply (up to 170 mm long), and GPUs up to 10.5" long. In other words, you can pull off a very small, yet powerful build in this case. Without wasting any more time, lets jump right into the review and see what this case truly has to offer.
    Model Name Z Model Number CSAZ-103 Spec Type Mini-ITX Gaming Case Color Black/Black(inside chassis) Material 0.6mm SECC Side Panel Window Yes With Power Supply No Motherboard Compatibility Mini ITX Power Location Front Bottom Expansion External 5.25" Drive Bay 1 External 3.5" Drive Bays 2 Expansion Slots 2 Front Ports 1x USB 3.0, 2xUSB 2.0, HD Audio Cooling System 120mm Fan 1x120mm LED fan on side Physical Spec Dimensions (HxWxD) 13.5"x4.4"x17.3" (342mmx112mmx440mm HxWxD) Weight 8lbs Features Exceptional Cooling System 1x120mm LED fan on the side, intake the cool air in. Support ATX power supply Support Regular ATX power supply. No need to use special kind TFX or 1U power supply. Water Cooling Capacity Support up to 2x120mm water cooling radiators. Support longest VGA card Accommodate VGA card up to 11"

    Great job on the review Jay. This is first time I've seen a radiator include a custom grill, too. I'm looking forward to seeing more Liquid Cooling product reviews on the Zoo!

    My XSPC RX V2 series rads have similar slits in the fins.  I think there's been claims from XSPC that Mayhem is using some of their IP due to lax chinese patent laws.  I couldn't say if it's intentional or not.  I'd hope it isn't as I've always admired Mayhem.

    Magoo is awesome I will admit, but dont under-estimate Micky (yes I know our cat is named after a mouse), he is working on a S3 build as well.
     

     
     
    On a serious note I do have a name planned but will put it up once I make some concrete progress on my design.

    jassilamba got a reaction from alpenwasser in Overclock temps vs. Inline tubing temps   
    If you look at my review of the RX 360, you can see what the water temps are under a heavy OC and full load. With the CPU at almost 80C, the water temp was an average of 30.5 C.
     
    The only time the water temps felt too high (when touching the tube), was when I did not have any fans on.

    jassilamba got a reaction from Karambit in tubing recommendations, acrylic or regular   
    The one trick for bending that I figured out the wrong way is heating up the area around the bend as well and not just the area that will be bent. If you dont heat up the area around the bend it will kink and dis-form. Be prepared to loose some tubing to practice.

    jassilamba reacted to Michael Kaiser in No CNC No Problem - Hand Crafted Fabrication   
    This is a slide show How to on Hand Crafted Fabrication.  Some amazing things have been crafted using basic tools and techniques long before CNC mills were ever invented. I want to pass on what was taught to me so that it might help other modders that don't have access to a mill or just want to take on the challenge of making things with basic tools. I have great respect for those that have the ability to program a CNC Mill to craft computer parts, some people would have you think there is no skill in that and I totally disagree. Those are just different skills than I have. There is a great satisfaction in hand crafting pieces so enjoy!

    jassilamba got a reaction from B NEGATIVE in Conundrum..... GTX 780, or AMD 290x....?   
    From what I'm reading the AMD card will be on par with GTX 780, with the 780 being the cheaper card. Of the two for now I would go with the 780.
     
    I like Bs idea of using a 7990, as you get SLI performance with a single card. If you want a 690 let me know I don't use mine and can give you a great deal.

    What was said above is a perfect answer. Most of us watercool cos it looks awesome more than anything else. 
     
    Also the other big benefit of custom loops is able to cool down your GPUs.
