    Learning period ahead!



    Got a pretty decent deal. 49.85 USD incl shipping (for reference, the same store sells the BlackWidow for 102.27 USD, which is the cheapest you can get it in Sweden, I'd say)
    A review will come, once I've grown used to it, and (hopefully) remapped the function and windows-key with eachother.
    A keyboard without left Win is not a keyboard for me.
    It has Cherry MX Black.

    It's rather the same OEM as the Steelseries 6Gv2. The Meka, guessing you mean Tt eSPORTS one? I don't find the similarities there, hm.

    Their cases are trash, headsets & mice are decent at best. I'm a big fan of their keyboards though, But I haven't used any other mechanical keyboard than the Blackwidow which I returned within a week, so I guess my standards are pretty low when it comes to periphelarals. it was trash. :P

    I'm the same way, whenever I'm at a local computer parts store, I see all the Tt cases they try and shove on people in their custom-prebuilts and I just about barf on the spot. >_<

    "I'm very confident in myself that I have no leaking, so I didn't put any paper towel in." (Something along those lines.)

    Oh boy this is going to be righteous.

    Isn't he going to get air bubbles in the thermal paste if he spreads it like that?

    Some people do do it that way, hell as I recall, Newegg TV suggests people do that.

    Also, nothing like having two fans on top of the radiator....

    It has to be, the pump isn't pushing any water... The water is just on top of the cpu heating up lol, no water is returning to the radiator or coming out of the reservoir. He's frying his pump by pushing through nothing but air.

    The water goes from red to pink because the tubes are full of air ^^

    I think something might be wrong with that guy's WC loop. Just sayin'

    In all seriousness, holy crap. Now that I have a good idea as to how NOT to do it, someone please post a full WC tutorial video where they get everything 100% correct (or atleast 99% correct) please?

    In that scenario, if you beat the fan out of the inner frame, you shroud the first fan, giving a far superior airflow/pressure than push/pull on raidators actually.
    Not really needed, but recommended for single fan-space radiators.
    If both fans are active and plugged in (didn't watch the video), it's be a minor increase in pressure.

    He had a HAF X. He had more than enough room. =S He didn't mod the fans at all either.

    So he was in fact just being bad.

    Should'a removed the top 200mm and put in the 120mm fans on top in its place instead imo. Or put the fans on the bottom. Current config is silly. Also, the pump shouldn't be running so high when the water clearly isn't even touching the poor thing...

    Honestly, it's not complicated at all once you got the equipment at hand. It's a bigger challenge sorting out what you should get, I think.

    That said, three small updates:
    - Got the last 16GB kit of RAM installed today. So now I've got 32GB of RAM and debating what RAM-disk software to use, lol.
    - Also got another monitor. Took said monitor, the old keyboard and old computer, and borrowed it to a friend of mine who's had a world of suck for way too long imo.
    - Watercooling kit should be arriving tomorrow! It's reached my town already, and alas I couldn't go pick it up personally at the depot... Gotta wait till they show at the door.

    So I just bought Sonic the Hedgehog 2 via Steam a bit ago for $2.50 on the Summer sale event and here's what just went down:

    My dad came downstairs to get something out of his work area, looks at my computer, "really?"

    Then he comes back and is like, "that must really be burning up your graphics card." /smirk

    I reply, "yeah, definitely a benchmark." /grin

    I like having a smart dad. :P

    Incidentally, I bought that yesterday.
    I haven't had a chance to play it yet.
    I'm going to savour every moment of it.

    In an unrelated story, I'm thinking about trying Alan Wake.
