    The sticks probably ran hot because of waste heat from neighbouring components rather than running excessively hot on their own. Insulation to the rescue! :D

    First 11-series GPU to be listed is the Strix GTX 1180, with an availability date of September 28 in Vietnam. Might not pan out that way of course, but this could be indicative of the Founder's Edition cards being on track, if custom cards start to pop up late September. A Lenovo spokesperson said their Legion desktop series will be updated with 11-series GPUs by this autumn.

    Why does the box look like it's been edited?

    Hummm, it has been edited. Guess they couldn't be bothered with changing the box on a brand new card?

    Probably fake. Considering the existence of that board...

    Might be fake. Hard to say for sure, but one thing is for certain... we will find out later. :vbbiggrin: Until then it doesn't matter.

    Made a video for a friend that wanted a closer look at the Praxis WetBench... I'm really liking it. But, I have to use my DataVac dust-buster to blow it off about once every 48 hours or so.

    Oh yeah, very good point, the Kapton Tape is probably reflecting the IR heat from the CPU heat pipes & other components as well as insulating it from the convective heat in the area - yep, I hadn't thought of an insulator being of benefit in that situation, but I think you're right.

    Yeah, I think I saw on another news site that this had been photo shopped:

    Shame on me. :D Asus may not even have official marketing material ready this far off from an announcement, so it was likely to be a placeholder image whether it looked dubious or not. In any case, this isn't a rumour thread. We'll know more next month.

    A quick hard tube question: does anyone know a trick for keeping the tube perfectly straight really close to a bend? I need to make a 45° bend in to the top radiator - as well as for the outlet. Maybe bending the end inside a fitting, or insulating the surrounding area from heat somehow would be possible.

    What you think? +5.2GHz on 6 cores and low 107W can’t match. And Bro Fox have talked about this more than 1 time:)
