Hey and welcome. I've seen you on Silent or HC. Good to see you on the forums.

I have the MG279Q monitor, I always notice when my monitor defaults to 60Hz for some reason. 120Hz+ makes a big difference, never wouldn´t go back anymore;)


Yeah... I was experiencing that the other day. I hear interference will cause it. I may see if a better displayport cable fixes this.

Nice, I'm a environmental engineer and something like this may come in handy from time to time. Typically I use https://www.aqua-calc.com/ but this will be a nice little addition to my toolkit. Thanks!

Nice video, a soon to be ET classic film 10/10!

Looks good! We are almost system-twins lol. I'm a fan of the RGB just because I can set it to a color I want and not have to buy new crap to match when I upgrade :lol:


AIO isn't so bad these days, It helps when the case is designed for dual rads though. The self-assembled watercooling really shines on the graphics cards more nowadays anyway, and in regards to looks, but the AIOs have come a long way IMO.


I like the tempered glass side-panel trend, less scratch-prone. A lot of people don't like venting the rad exhaust into the case, but its only a few degrees above ambient, you won't notice any performance issues I bet. I have had to do that on a few builds and it was negligible at best.


You need a new monitor lol, that poor 1080ti wants to flex its muscles.


Oh for et if you haven't got it up and running yet, if it acts up there are a few settings you might need to tweak that weren't around back in the day, or I don't recall needing... I will try to remember what they were but these guys would be more useful than I :lol:


I'm finally on my new monitor! It's a ASUS P279Q. The change from 60hz to 165hz (or 144hz) is quite something on ET. THe old monitor had to be close to 10 years old. ET was producing a an intermittent half second lag/tick every few seconds. Compatibility mode nor anything else would seem to fix it. I resolved the issue by installing the native 2.6b ET from https://fearless-ass...26b-full-setup/ and not dragging in all of my old ETmain files.


I actually haven't installed the side yet as I was waiting for 2 more 140's for the back of the radiator and now it actually moves a lot of air thus creating a positive pressure environment. Its been running NiceHash so I didn't want to subject it to excess heat. The new fans dropped the GPU temps by about 5 degrees without changing the GPU fan setting. There was also a 2TB WD Black HD deal on Black Friday on Amazon for $80 so I have a storage drive in it now. I have a 500gb 840 Samsung SSD in a cheap laptop that I'm wanting to pull and stick it on the visible SSD mount :) We will see...


Everything runs fairly cool and has been extremely stable. No issues getting my non-samsung memory running on its XMP profile. I opted for this ram since it was 3200 (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR) for $160 and didn't want to pay an extra $100 for the Samsung modules.
