FOXCONN launch Quantum Force Scholarship program
Cash and free computer hardware for the hottest (or coolest) overclockers!

FOXCONN today announced the Quantum Force Scholarship program, which offers cash and hardware sponsorship for budding overclockers.

Applicants are invited to send in their CVs now, with the first intake of ‘Scholars’ announced before the end of the year - http://www.quantum-force.net/qforcers/Q000000005

Those in the program can expect free hardware and cash sponsorship for LN2 cooling. They will also have chance to do early testing on future Quantum Force products, provide their suggestions to Quantum Force R&D teams, and hopefully set some new overclocking records.

“This is what Quantum Force is really about… working with enthusiasts to develop great overclocking products” claims Greta Kuo, Quantum Force product manager. “We have already seen FSB of 622MHz with our MARS product, using LN2 cooling, and we are excited about setting a range of future benchmarks”.

The Quantum Force Scholarship program is the most generous yet to be officially launched by a manufacturer, and Scholars will get the added bonus of working with top overclocker and Quantum Force Technical Consultant “Shamino”.

Shamino, who recently appeared in an online Quantum Force video (http://www.quantum-force.net/qforcers/Q000000003), is looking forward to working with other overclockers: “It’s going to be pretty cool to see QF product pushed to the limits, and to see overclockers working together to directly influence the development of a motherboard. This really is breaking new ground for the OC community.”

Enthusiasts who don’t make it into the program can still win up to US$1,000 of computer hardware by submitting their MARS-powered overclocking benchmark to the QF website PowerWall at http://www.quantum-force.net/qforcers/Q000000002

Was just wondering, where does this leave me for upgrades?



No sweat. More or less all hardware is available in 3/8" or 1/2" variants... all the topend stuff takes 1/4" threaded fittings... and you can get more or less every possible fitting in that size to support whatever size hose you want. eg: Swiftech blocks come with both 1/2" and 3/8" fittings in the box...

I've got 7/16'' tubing on 1/2'' barbs, gives a really tight fit.

Cheers man that's the first comment I've gotten so far that has been useful and not told me to scrap the lot.

I only said that as I've had TT kit and I know the build quality of it. As Marci said, it is standard sized stuff

As to whether it's worth using a high end CPU block with TT kit...decide for yourself but personally I see no point

Heh I never asked anything about that dude, I wanted to know if there were full cover GPU blocks available for 3/8" tubes :p
I'll say it once more for your benefit but I don't have enough money for a new case AND a water system, hence buying a preinstalled :p

EK blocks are the best bet for full coverage 3/8" IMHO.

I gathered that, thanks. Personally you're better off with good air cooling. Again, in my opinion

Heh well you say that, but in my testing so far... whoops the ass off air cooling.

What temps you getting?

Deshman
Well bear in mind it's a 4000+ but the temps are 23 internal ambient, 26 cpu, 25 hdds and they don't stray much over 30 on full load whereas on air cooling I'd be lucky to keep the cpu under 40. I'm still modding the case but when I'm done I'll be sure to run repeated tests to get some spot on figures.
