Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Skully there is still Aura for your video card. The thing is ASUS sucks at software utilities and the mobo Aura is designed to control all units so it likes to work alone. It is good to have one utility (mobo Aura) instead of several trying to work together. I would seriously consider the ROG Claymore KB if it didn't have the detachable numpad.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

I found this last week when checking on STRIX water blocks. I might give it some thought.

Great looking block, I'd be after that block if I still had the RVE 10...

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Skully, where is the thread where you bought the block before? RIV I think it was.

BTW, I was trying to compare benchmarks to the 8700K and the old 5960X. I know they are 2yrs apart but I was looking for one game or 3DMark bench and couldn't find any. They usually keep comparisons between mainstream and HEDT separated.

I did find this old review though at TH.

Intel Haswell-E 6- and 8-Core Power Usage at 4 GHz

The Haswell-E 5960X was a big star when it arrived and was heavily reviewed in depth. The review above was in a German lab and it is a nice review in that is shows testing and not commentary. It has collected CPU voltage/temps/watts and power supply/VRM data at different OCing plateaus (stock 3.3, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, and 4.8GHz). From studying these readings I find 4.0 most acceptable. Check out the VRM wattage on the 4GHz and above OC's. It makes you want to get the full cover block I posted above.

You know what I may because I am looking at at least half that for the CPU block alone. With that you get CPU/VRM/PCH. One note is if you ever have to change the CPU or re-TIM it it is 10X harder to do. It is also a very niche product and I would never get any money back for it but who cares.

I tell you I migrate toward calamity. There is no worse upgrade than to try to do a full blown water cooling job on all new hardware. Don't forget this is my only PC and I need to have it operating or else have no support line. I tried to do a completed custom water loop including the graphics card using stiff water tubing and doing it on the Maximus X Formula and I started doing it by selling my current hardware before I even received my new hardware. It is too brazen.

Here is the proper upgrade schedule.
  1. Acquire new hardware and test it
  2. Sell old hardware
  3. After new hardware is running steady begin custom water loop

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Skully I need to know when you put your mono block on if you took the heat pipes apart going to the I/O HS and the VRM HS????

This is a steal basically and one left.

A full mobo water block has been ages ago, I don't even remember what
ASUS mobo it was. I never worry about what I take apart, I usually get it
all back together again. If its screwed or pinned to the mobo.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Thanks, I already made up my mind not to get it. I really like it and it does have some cons but the one con is you have to take the whole VRM and rear I/O HS off and they are attached by a heat pipe. One guy cut his heat pipe off and I am not about to do that. So, if you use the mono block above you lose the large I/O heat sink as well.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Didn't get to finish the post above last night. Like I said I also like to keep the mobo factory looking and not destroy its looks. Also, I think about usability and being able to access the CPU and takes things apart again quickly. If there were an easy way to detach a heat pipe from aluminum block I might have gotten it.

I am not debating water cooling but I am debating PETG vs. polyurethane. I know I can do PETG for the first time and it allows you to form straight-fixed lines so you can show off LED's etc. but polyurethane allows you to move hardware around without detaching it.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

PETG is hard tubing Skully. You heat it to bend it. It is rigid and makes straight runs and 90/45deg turns. You can route it anyway you like. I am thinking about using it to keep pipe away from LED's. It also comes in a variety of colors. Couplings bigger and tubing is 14mm OD and 12mm ID.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

Yea it really looks good, and being able to shape it the way ya want.
Would really come in handy for tube routing... I've thought of looking
into hard tubing. So I'd be interested, if you're so disposed to go that
way...

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE V EDITION 10

The big drawback IMO for rigid tubing is you cannot move your cards or blocks around any longer unless you drain the fluid and detach the tubes. It is pretty much permanent once you get it installed and filled. With polyurethane tubing you can pull the CPU HS off and sling it to the side without breaking open the water loop.

BTW, PETG tubing has been going on for years, it is what all the professional builds and display PC's use.
