    Yeah, it's kind of awesome to think that you're not actually touching the chair that you're sitting on, but you're feeling the force of the atoms repelling you away from it.

    The only way to actually "touch" an object would for it to be chemically bonded by melting things into each other.

    And that is why it is a pain to play TAG with a physicist.

    Seriously though, if you want to continue the discussion on heatsinks, lapping and delidding CPUs I would strongly suggest creating a new thread. This is getting a bit off-topic.

    got some new pieces for my computer!

    h100i, 3570k, 670 FTW 2, MSI Z77 G45 Gaming motherboard, 4x4gb 2133 Patriot RAM, AX850 Corsair PSU with white cables and it's all in a Fractal R4. only annoyance is that I overlooked my sound card. I did have an asus xonar D1 but my motherboard doesn't have any PCI slots.



    gonna clean up some of the cabling when I get my new fans on monday. Just threw it together so I could see if it all worked!

    edit: does it matter which way I mount the h100i? everyone else seems to mount the pipes at the back of the case, rather than they way I did it, cheers

    I would mount the fans so they pulling air through the radiator and out the case, easy to clean as well since you just need to dust off the radiator (from bottom and up radiator, fans, case top).

    I think he means the hose direction? I dont think it matters at all tbh, but i could be wrong.

  11. #11051
    ya, hose direction, my bad. wasn't sure if i should put the hoses at the back or front of the case. everyone seems to put them towards the back.

    Maybe.

    I do wish they would do away with brown PCBs already :/

    Have you tried routing the PCI-E cables to the GPU through the lower grommet? you'd see less of them, and because of the viewing angle the weave of the cable sleeving would make appear more opaque.
