Barrow HDM2280-PA Waterblock for NVMe 2280/22110 Size M2, Double Sided Auxiliary Cooling. It wasn't easy to put in between the CPU & GPU Waterblocks. It was difficult to drain and not get anything wet when removing the tubes. Was it worth it? YES! Will I do it again? NO! :) It depends on load as to how much the temperature difference is, but it is at least 21C degrees cooler on average.
UPDATE: I added a RADEON VII with EK Waterblock to the Comparison. A Discord User and myself tested our Radeon RX 5700 XT's today. We both ran a 15 minute Furmark test. PowerColor Liquid Devil 5700 XT vs AMD 5700 XT Anniv. Ed. with Bykski Water Block. Both had 2 X 360 Radiators and both ended up with inline water at 36C. He used Liquid Devil's UNLEASHED BIOS stock and I used AMD Anniv. Factory OC BIOS stock. He saved time not having to put on WB and I saved $50 and lost an hour. We called it a draw. Above are the results. ALL TESTS WERE RAN ON DEC. 21, 2019.
DETAILED BUILD GUIDE: We build a beautiful, clean streaming machine with an AMD Ryzen 3700X CPU, Asus TUF X570 Gaming-Plus (WiFi) motherboard & Asus TUF 1660 Super OC 6GB GPU using it's new Turing die and newer NVENC encoder. OBS (Open Broadcasting Software),
STAY TUNED for PART 2 where we get OBS and all the Streaming software running!
Please just fast forward through any parts you don't like. No need to be a Debbie Downer and leave negative comments. I already know there are issues with the audio in places. It was also late at the end of the build
This is a high air flow, budget case that can hold up to E-ATX size motherboards. I really like it. Watch the Video Review. I built the 3700X SUPER STREAMER in it. See the second video below. Solid Thumbs Up!
NZXT Nemesis Elite. I just couldn't put this New AMD 3700X CPU into this old case. It was running perfectly with valid licenses, was too dirty and was very nostalgic. I've had the case since 2004 or 2005. In the video I look at three budge cases so I don't have to tear apart this working computer. Look further below. I list out the parts I'm going to use in this streaming PC after thinking about it some.
+35C Reduction in Temperatures at Hotspot with GPU Waterblock and 2nd 360mm Radiator added to loop on 3950X CPU in the combined loop. FINAL RESULTS - 1 Hour Run - Results from Prime 95 & Furmark running on AMD RX 5700 XT Anniversary - Stock Blower vs Bykski GPU Water Block. Blower Test only had 1 360mm Radiator on 3700X CPU.
These Gigabyte Aorus X570 Motherboard BIOS settings should be the same or very, very similar on all Gigabyte Aorus X570 F10 BIOS'. These settings are recommended from AMD via Robert Hallock and 1usmus, an overclocker who wrote the Ryzen DRAM Calculator. We are not covering all overclocking, but we are covering the main settings AMD recommends that will let the Ryzen 3000 CPU's overclock the best on their own. They are all in one menu in the F10 BIOS release for all Gigabyte X570 mobo's.
Why Pay More? This G1/4" fitting size and 14mm tubing and connectors is the most common size of watercooling for computers. The ones we look at here are pretty much standard from different vendors and the PRICES ARE MUCH LOWER. There are all sorts of name brands and sizes. Vendors and Big Youtubers try to lock you in to using their custom systems. That's fine if you want to spend $500-$1,000 for watercooling parts (I can think of one huge youtuber specifically). I DON'T WANT TO PAY A $1,000! So check out these, lowest cost, great performing, most standardized size, watercooling parts. If you want to pay more, go watch those big name youtubers and their big name sponsors. All the parts I show are available for low prices below from multiple vendors.
AVerMedia Live Gamer Ultra 4K Settings & Example Uses (One PC, 2 Cameras & Screen/Game)
Explain installation of software and couple settings to change. I show examples Using OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) and RECentral 4 from Avermedia. I'm doing all this only on one PC with video coming out of the 5700XT HDMI port to Avermedia capture card and then back into the same computer over USB to RECentral 4 (or OBS). I show examples of screen capture, game capture, RECentral and OBS using multiple inputs and multiple cameras and screens and games on one PC. Streamer Heaven! Vlogger's Paradise!
Ulanzi FT-96 Mini LED Video Light vs. VL100
SJCAM SJ4000 AIR 4K/30FPS HD Action Camera. It's pretty good for $50. It can be found for cheaper than that. I'll use it for those times when it doesn't make sense to break out the bigger Panasonic Lumix G85 camera. the SJ4000 Air doesn't have image stabilization, but you can see I threw in my truck's dash and went to the gas station. It did pretty good. I'm happy with it for the prices.
Ulanzi VL100 5500K LED Pocket Camera Video Light. I bought this light for backlighting . It's small, bright and effective. I really like it and recommend it. I will have another review of the Ulanzi FT-96 up very shortly.
First, respect to Kevin of Tech Showdown. He wasn't a super famous Youtube TechTuber, but he was infamous, either. I wasn't even a subscriber at the time. Steve Walton of Hardware Unboxed started a GoFundMe below while Keven was living for medical expenses. It was sadly later converted to Medical and Funeral expenses. The first video is his brother and the second is Steve and Tim from Hardware unboxed. It is today and the time is below. I guess this is an interesting use of Youtube that I've never seen before except on television and movies. Rest in peace.

Before I get my office setup and all these parts are installed, I thought I'd show you what I chose for Vlogging and Streaming and general Youtube Tech videos. 23 Items unboxed in this video. VLOG STATION HOUSTON will be up soon!
This is a Real World CPU Performance Checker (Excel). This is about as real as it gets. This is a real formula businesses uses to calculate unique orders, accounts, whatever by different business lines. It uses as many cores and as much memory as it can. There are 13 unique Business lines within the one company. There are 50,000 Unique accounts randomized into 250,000 rows along with the line of business to which they belong. The formula below calculates all rows and keeps results from row above it, so the lower it gets, the more it has to track and formula time increase as it goes further.
