    Smart / Electric Blinds - Echo?

    Thanks.. Sounds like it's going to be a bit of a ball ache, or expensive game to set it up!

    Smart / Electric Blinds - Echo?

    I'm thinking of getting some electric blinds to expand my ever growing 'smart home'. I've had a little search online but not having great luck in finding something that I can confidently say works with Echo, able to schedule to close at certain times etc. Can anyone help point me in the...

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    Ok so a little update, after sorting some personal things out I have been able to sit down and have a play with this... I've tried vsync on and off, no difference. I tried bridging my old PSU to power the GPU only - Same thing, it's a decent enough 700W so I don't think it is PSU OR lack of...

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    Been busy and not had a chance to test anything, I have a spare PSU that I upgraded from, still not a bad PSU... Wondering could I plug that PSU into my graphics card and then bridge it as if I was going to test a watercooling loop and turn it on at the same time as I turn on my PC so that it...

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    I would be very surprised if the stock cooler hidden this noise. The stock cooler wasn't all that loud, but this coil whine is seriously loud. If I was a DB meter, I would rate it at about 60db.. It is VERY loud. Surely my PSU should be able to cope with the spec I have and it can't be that?

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    I put the pads on the backplate so I believe so, but I will confirm it coveres everything. How do I know what pressure to put on the screws? Is it just loosen off, test, loosen off test?

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    I'll try with vsync on thanks. Some maps I get around the same FPS as I was previously, but it happens even at the menu screen where FPS is always just capped even before hand. Before I bought the PSU I looked and 750 was more than enough from what I could see for my requirements so hoping it...

    Coil Whine - After adding water block?

    Hi, I have an EVGA 1080GTX which has ran fine for a short period that I tried it out gaming with the standard FE fan on. However, when I installed my waterblock as soon as I open a game full screen it gets seriously loud coil whine. Has anyone got any idea why this may be? Was the fan masking...

    Buggar.. Was going to order it last night but I know you had changed the option on the other 8pack bundle so was hoping you'd do it for this but didn't realise it was going to end after overnight.. Looks like I will have to wait :(
