  • XSPC Photon D5 and DDC Tops Unboxing

    Some minor corrections - XSPC do indeed make G1/4 adapters for the top fill port. There will be a version with multiple G 1/4 ports in future. The Dual DDC top is designed to be mounted using the...
  • Yeah I was surprised too, I expected the higher restriction blocks to do a bit better, and I expected Koolance's huge surface area to make a difference too. I did confirm both XSPC and Koolances results with a few more runs but that was as far as I could get before the card deteriorated and the operating point was no longer stable.

    Warning - this is a long one - skip on 12 minutes or so to get to the real resu...
  • Yes - it's an echoey room. A rug would help, we have less echoey rooms, but this has the most light, so I guess it's a trade off. Maybe I should pick up some cheap 500W halogens and just do it in a better room.

  • Interesting - I'll have to check this. The actual internals should be the same so that's unexpected. Thanks for the heads up. If it leaks because the center of the QDC is not flush with it's surroundings immediately after taking a pair apart then that can be a sign that there's an issue with the spring and Koolance should replace it :)

    Koolance QDC3/QDC4 Quick Disconnect Preview

    Playing around with the new QDC3/QDC4 Koolance Quick Disconnects for PC water cooling. Plus a size comparison to the VL4N series

  • I haven't done the retest yet, my testing CPU wasn't lapped, just smoothed a bit from so many installs. I don't honestly think it will make a difference but it's worth a try. I would stick with the CPU-380 for now.

  • Hey CigarBoB unfortunately these were recorded a while back with a crappy camera. I'm now using my DSLR which should help a bit. The mic is still somewhat crappy in terms of quality, but if you check the latest vid on the X3 reservoir it's a good bit louder. Down the road I'd like to get a nice external one, but there are other priorities right now :)

  • Yes - 2x3.5" mounts behind the tray and 2x2.5" mounts behind the tray. If you fit the USB3 and Audio front IO ports then you lose the 2x2.5" mounts, but there is an adapter to fit 2x2.5" into one of the 3.5" mount.

  • - Hey - Yes I'll be using both trays - one for my linux workstation and one for my gaming rig. I have two seperate x58 rigs right now waiting to go in, and then one will be upgraded to X79 soon. A phase change or water chiller could be made to fit in the bottom pedestal, the limiting factor will be height as the chamber is about 200mm tall so it does depend on the design, but width and depth won't be a problem. There will also be a single motherboard horizontal option coming later
