    Gamingpc.ca - pre built customizations advice

    I love watercooling, and have only had custom loop watercooled systems since 2004. They look and cool great, and I've never had a pump (D5) die or fried any components because of leaks. But they need occasional maintenance and are very expensive! Some of the parts can be reused in your next...

    Thanks, it is working out well. I'm not 100 percent sure about the strip mine reference, unless you mean the print on the left wall? That's a coastal scene in Newfoundland (where my wife is from). They don't call it the rock for nothing! Very cool! Your branch of tubing through the wall...

    Love the hangar for the headset! A couple of months ago I finally got rid of my 25 or 30 year old crappy desk, painted my office, and got a new IKEA setup (two desk tops, two file cabinets and some legs, chair, cable management hangars). It's rarely this neat!

    Want to Buy Asus GTX 1080 Strix

    I was going by this: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1080-vs-AMD-RX-5700-XT/3603vs4045 I looked at a different video review, in that the 5700 XT was a little faster in most (not all) games, plus there are apparently some AMD driver issues. Having said that, if I didn't like...

    Want to Sell Closet cleaning sale

    I remember a player called Cannon Fodder from the ancient online game Urban Terror. Perchance is that you? I think I'm going to take these blocks, just trying to determine for sure that I can dremel a version 1.0 into a 2.0, and then cut out a piece of the copper to allow clearance for a...

    Want to Sell Closet cleaning sale

    I have one, and don't have a bus license/GST number. I enjoy using it, and learned about it here on HWC, so I reflexively asked about it. Mind you, I did sign up when it was still called Venture One. I didn't say it was a condition of me taking the blocks or anything, and he hasn't taken any...

    Want to Sell Closet cleaning sale

    It's free to sign up. Most people appreciate being told about it, especially if they sell a few items here and there. It would make no difference in the shipping cost, since I'm not in a hurry and would be fine with regular parcel.

    Want to Sell Closet cleaning sale

    Do you know if any of your 290x blocks are rev 2.0? I have a pair of XFX R9 390X 8GB cards, and the EK configurator says that rev 2.0 fits some of them (have to check which inductors mine have). Backplates? Have you signed up for Canada Post's Solutions for Small Business (formerly Venture...

    Want to Sell *EVERYTHING $100 SHIPPED* Alphacool XT45 280 Rad, EK Monarch RAM Block, 980 Block

    I exchanged a bunch of messages with him but we couldn't agree on price. I did notice that he had his items posted on kijiji and suspect that is where the "sold" items went, but that is for him to say.
