The pump is attached to the bottoms of the reservoirs. They are EK D5 Revo's.

Lol. I understand why people think that, but there are actually a lot of differences. Jay has a very clean design. In fact the one I just build for a client specified that I replicate Jay's build. Lol

Thank you. I've actually used there case before. Honestly, I was not that impressed with it. Maybe it was the case I had, but I just didn't really enjoy working in it. I'd like to try another again sometime. The guys at Parvum are awesome, I will say that.

Yes, I build them for clients. You will actually probably see another SMA8 show up here very shortly that I built for him. :)

1.295v It will do 4.8 on all cores at 1.37. Temps get hot with that voltage. GPU's are about 1.26v GPU's don't have a problem with the heat. They usually run 28c. 34c is the absolute max I've ever seen and that was once after it was basically heat soaked from running benchmarks stability tests, etc.

Yep that's it. :) I work off of a Synology DS1815+. No need for anything else but a boot drive. The back plate came with the bitspower block. I thought about painting the white portion but opted not to in case I ever sell the block somebody else may not like it. Thanks!

Yes, I did. The memory overclocks pretty well on these. Power target was 122%

1528 seems to be the max I can reach right now on the stock Bios. I have some more work to do on the CPU first, then I'll get back to the Ti's.

Thank you. Yes, I got a nice 5960x chip. :)
Yes, I would say it is similar, but then again all SMA8 sort of look similar. Lol

Wait until you see this other SMA8 that will be showing up soon here. :)

DazMode. I bought the last 2 they had. Nobody has them anywhere I looked. Lol I even checked with Bitspower themselves. "They are in short supply" One of the reasons I went this way because they were hard to get and I wanted to be a little different. https://www.dazmode.com/store/

tcase temp is different than the actual core temp. I think if you check around you will find that these temperature are common and pretty good. I don't get worried until they get near 80c. The new chips don't throttle under upper 90c. I've been doing this a very long time and have not seen any CPU degradation. I understand your point about running the GPU into the CPU, but you need to understand the GPU's will not heat up the water enough to make a 10c difference.

Hi Thank you for the comments. I'm not sure I understand your comment though. The max temp for the CPU, 66 degrees is very good for a 6 core CPU clocked at 4.6GHz under at full load??!

That may be a very tight fit in push/pull. Check where your motherboard connectors are, if they are at the very top you will probably have problems.

For this one I used Teleios, my other builds I used paracord. I actually think I prefer paracord. It doesn't feel like cheap plastic. I like them both, but prefer paracord.

Yes, it is possible. You have to remember though the G3258 only has 2 cores, so half the heat already. This runs cooler than my 4790k. It's also the chip, but yes you can achieve very good temperatures water cooling. There are several factors involved though like the pump, fans, ambient temperature, size of the reservoir, etc.

Thanks! Give CaseLabs some time. I'm sure they will offer it again. They were so back logged that they had to stop the colored options. They will resume them, but probably not for several months. Keep checking their twitter page. I'm sure they will post news when they are going to resume manufacturing those colors.
