That's just the way he rolls.

Since I'm thinking of getting an Aquaero 6 I kinda regret buying my D5 Vario's. Sure I could set-and-forget but if I do need to change speed, (such as filling the loop) it'll be a pain, as the bottom of the pump would be quite close to a panel leaving only a small gap to try and turn the dial.

Plus, the EK D5 G2's cables are sleeved.
sleeved



Which is clearly better than hotdog cables. I say the EK D5 because I hear the Aquabus D5's can't be found any more?

Got the Aquaero 6 + splitty 9 ordered, was wondering what fans to get and saw a funny noctua review



What, did he buy the 3000 rpm version with no controller?

Anyhow, I ordered 7 of the chromax ones, and was thinking of picking up some phanteks halos lux for em.

If it's an active splitter, I think it still allows individual PWM control. I think that's what I'm reading.

Uhm. I just realized I might hit the 300 LED limit for my motherboard (Aorus Master)

I'm pretty sure the ekwb velocity drgb has 24.


How many LEDs are there in the 2080 Aorus Waterforce WB, or 4 sticks of trident z drgb?
My fans are already going to take up 210 leds, that leaves 90, minus the CPU block that leaves 66 for the GPU and RAM.

I might have to plug the phanteks Halo Lux Digital fan LED's into a phanteks drgb hub?
At least the Aquacomputer's farbwerk 360 doesn't count.

Is there some cable or adaptor I can use to plug phanteks halos lux digital + Neon into a Farbwerk 360?

Man, I wish RGB companies would just adopt a single standard.

I have a farbwerk question, can I plug a Phanteks DRGB such as halos lux digital or neon strip into one of these:

and then connect that to the farbwerk 360 using:

My pumps have a molex cable for power and a fan header cable for PWM and RPM.
The Aquaero 6 has enough power to power a pump directly from the fan header right? Is there a molex power + 2pin fan header to 4 pin fan header cable?

Like this, but with PWM too


Also, I'm still concerned at max amps a wire can take. Molex can do about 10 amps I think? If I'm using all 4 of the molex chain, do I have to worry about the 6 pin peripheral cable part? I'm using 210 LED's for the fans alone + 94 LED's on strips.

Yeah! The Phanteks Halos Lux Digital works great with the Farbwerk 360! Sooo much better looking than the Phanteks RGB controller.

into the Farbwerk 360


Bit of a journey but it works! I can either plug each Halos into it's own RGBpx channel, or chain them together into one channel with each Halos a copy of the first.

Torn between these 2 boards for overclocking my new i7-8700k:

GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS ULTRA
ASUS Prime Z390-A

I like the WiFi and VRM dependability of the Gigabyte, but the audio codec and BIOS UI seem to be better on the ASUS.

Any idea which I should choose, or a different one to throw in the ring?

I've no idea where the Asus stands (probably high) but I have heard that the Aorus Master has better VRM's than the Ultra.

[edit] no idea if it's true

M.2 is just the connector, there's Sata M.2 and NVME M.2

Sata M.2 is no faster than normal Sata SSD's. Cool formfactor though.

I keep changing my mind about which fittings to use.

I like the black chrome of bitspower but I like the shape of Phanteks'. I wonder how it would turn out if I painted the Phanteks ones black chrome?

The Barrowch 90 (FBFTWT90-V1) looks awesome!

It's meant to be a 360 degree rotary part, but I don't see how it could be? Also, it mixes aluminium and brass which is fine when they show which bits are what, which they don't.
