    No agenda...no....just posting up what I thought might be useful...

    You and anyone else is free to turn to whomever they chose for advice.

    I will say, that having watched Carey I have the same concerns Chino mentioned and maybe a bit of studying to get what JJ is saying and then following his advice would lead to a happier build. He asks you, in effect, to do a bit of reading...to put in your part..to come at this with a learning attitude not a spoonfed one...that is the trade for his help.

    Carey says in part 2 that people who recommend a bare-bones, on the box test build are "not confident in their skills"...purrrlease...I'm not even going to go there...

    The RAM thing is plain bad...not very good for a "noob" to take away the mixing kits idea...

    For learning how to custom water cool, I like watching this guy, too--he actually takes GPU's and such apart and shows you how to water block them:

    Insalling a gpu waterblock isn't difficult, you just have to handle them carefully and have a little patience. If you can install the monoblock on your motherboard you can install a gpu waterblock.

    Notice he does the spread method too.

    Yes, his 'Monsta' video was where I learned that the 2011 v-3 die is so big that it is probably better to spread the paste on it. Smaller dies may be okay with the pea-sized or rice-grain-sized method, but the 2011 v-3 likely cannot get completely covered that way.

    While watching this vid, I kept staring at my old Gateway with its micro-ATX MOBO and WIndows Vista OS thinking I might upgrade it:



    Then I decided that I would only do it if someone in my family or a friend needed an okay PC and they were willing to spend a couple hundred bucks on it (it would need a new MOBO with a 16-laned PCIe slot) so I could make it worth 3-4 times as much after I worked on it.

    I take my time with builds, thank you, especially since I have to order everything online and wait on it all to be delivered.

    Also, LEARNING is ALWAYS 'useful,' thank you again.
