I first discovered neowin back in the good old days of countless builds of Longhorn now known as Vista, back then your main rival was PROnetworks and if i'm not mistaken is still running to this day!!

 

Anyway I just thought i'd say a quick hello. Also I would like to say thank you again to Steve Parker for helping me sort my account, thanks again Steve

Ok I said rival, you weren't really rivals, you just were very similar websites in content!

Dont remember ever visiting PROnetworks but I joined Neowin in 2001, right after Win XP was released. Trying to figure out how to tweak XP for performance by editing the registry  :)

Good old days of XP. Neowin was the forum for customization and tweaking.

Haha yeah :) time flies....

BTW nice build!

I almost went with the Corsair AIO myself but then opted for a mini ITX compact build... havei7 8700k & 2x 500GB of Samsung 960 evo in Raid 0 :D  but am waiting for GTX 1180 to upgrade my 1070.

Heh did not see that before... that's one sweet low profile cooler.

BTW how often to you have to drain and refill the closed loop water cooler?

Yeah I was looking at the hybrid too... I found one a month ago but was so over priced, I decided to wait for few months until 1180 comes out... and maybe prices will go down by then...

heh never ;) sealed for life,
Most AIO coolants are a mix of mostly water, Propylene Glycol, and then trace amounts of anti-corrosives and biocides.

Yea, the 115i is a kick ass cooler.  the low profile looks pretty slick too.

I remember PRONetworks. That's where I used to get longhorn builds (that and msbetas). Also learned about Mandrake (Mandriva) linux there.  So long ago!
