I didn't have too much trouble, only real problem is I couldn't get the radiator in without removing the phanteks panel that supports the optical bay. After I took that out I decided against putting it back in as it looked better without it anyways. It was super tight and I don't think there was a way to fit that 420mm rad in there without taking out that panel, when it's installed you could fit the panel back on though. Also like other people mentioned my motherboard VRMs are too close to the outlet port, leaving no clearance for the fitting so I put it reverse with the inlet/outlet of the radiator at the optical bay. the thickness of the rad wasn't really a problem.
hope this was helpful sorry for the delay, but my parts took a little while to get here :)
Thanks for the response. I'm using soft tubing so I really hope it's flexible enough... I won't do push pull though so I should be fine.
I'm going to have the 240mm XE rad in the front in push, where can I put the hard drive cage? if anything I'll just sit the hard drive carefully in the optical bay and get rid of the cage. I also contacted EKWB as they said the pump/res is also out of stock, so I got a pump and a reservoir. I don't think I have room for the reservoir, so I plan to drill two holes on the side panel of my Enthoo Luxe and mount the reservoir, then drill two 3/4" holes and use gromets to feed tube through. Do you think this will work and will it negatively effect temps? I could just wait for the pump/res combo to be available, but the thought of having a big reservoir on the side of my case is pretty nice.
Push or pull?
Ok good, don't know what this person meant saying that radiator doesn't fit in the luxe... Do you think my 60mm thick 240mm radiator will be fine with just two fans and push or pull? Having the radiator in the front would force me to use it as an intake drawing hot air into the system, is this fine?
You didn't look very hard then lol.... Dells AW3418DW is 100hz native and OC's to 120 hz while the acer x34 is 60 hz and OC's to 100 hz, not guaranteed though. Dell also has better quality control from what I've heard and the panel on the AW3418DW is an updated version of the one used in the x34, which was made in 2012. I've also heard the AW3418DW has a redish tint to it and most people had to calibrate the colors. If you're only using it for gaming, I'd go for the AW3418DW as those extra 20 hz can be noticable and you don't have a guaranteed 100hz with the x34. Acer has been teasing a x35, a ultrawide 3340x1440 @ 200hz with HDR g-sync - if you can wait, don't expect it to be cheap though.
or I could not take the bus and save for more ram lol
gaming, I know the 6800k is overkill and a 4-core 6700k would've been cheaper and more effective but **** it, i only built this to be OP and it is.
have you seen the strix version yet? looks awesome
didn't know that existed. thanks for informing me!
again RIGHT before the 1080 release
if what everyone is saying doesn't make sense, than what we're basically saying is nvidia announced a graphics card that costs $600 and it is supposed to run way better than a titan x (and if you don't know what that is than it's a graphics card that's a bit better than a 980 ti and costs abo $1200) and after that all 980 ti's and pretty much every old card is going to go down in price A LOT.
I feel so bad for him, even if he didn't get the 1080 then the 1070 is like a $400 980 ti lol
only thing I can say is you chose the wrong time to buy a 980 ti with the gtx 1080 comming out later this month :3
which was last night!!! 1080 ftw!!!
I was kidding lol
true but who doesn't want to pay an extra $130 for "new" stuff?
it's in nzd (new zeland dollars) so that 970 was actually $330 usd :3
