  • I think, I picked the wrong side. Don't get me wrong, my 980Ti is a beast. But little things keep me bugging me.

    1] Intel announcing their support of Freesync/Adaptive-sync over Gsync.
    2] Freesync monitors being cheaper (and now more effective with the new firmware).
    3] Radeon's apparent higher performance in DX12 vs GeForce.
    4] Microsoft's plan to port more games from XBone to PC vs PC to XBone.
    5] While Nvidia controls the dGPU market at 80%+, AMD is in all the consoles.
    6] AMD drivers seem to increase performance with age (example, R9 290X) vs. Nvidia which will freeze optimizations (example, Kepler).
    7] Radeons don't need an ugly bridge for multi-gpu.
    8] Like, I pointed to above. Currently, Crossfire scales better than SLi.
    9] Nvidia has better DX11 performance & better (lower) power consumption.
    10] Can sell my Classified Ti for more than I paid for it and perhaps purchase two Fury(s).

  • I masturbate more than the usual adult male, so pipe bending was easy for me :wink: .

    I still think it would be fun and more forgiving to do an acrylic or PETG hard tube build.

    For custom cables, you can do your own with MDPC-X Sleeve, http://www.caselabs-store.com/mdpc-x-sleeve/ . Have someone else to it for you, with custom lengths like http://ensourced.net/ . Or buy replacement cable sets, from CableMod (EVGA, Corsair & Seasonic) http://www.performance-pcs.com/cablemod ... ement-set/ .
    CableMod does have new colors and materials coming in the next few months.

    Originally, I had planned to get custom length copper colored Ensourced cables for my Seasonic 860XP2. But, I got a fantastic deal on an EVGA 1000P2. So I replaced the old CMPSU-1000HX with the 860XP2 in my server and got some CableMod replacement cables for the 1000P2.

  • Changed out my dual D5 pumps for an Eheim pump and also changed the routing of the tubing.

  • I sold my 980Ti Classy and had enough cash to pick up two 980s, 1xKingpin and 1xClassified. Both overclocked to 1491mhz SLi stable, though my Classy is holding my Kingpin back. I got the 980 Classy back in November for $360 after rebate and then picked up the slightly used 980 Kingpin w/block and all its accessories in December, from OCN for $400.
