Looks good now fire it up!~
Need Sonda5 to send me my other Black Ice GTS and it will be done.
and thanks! I am excited for it to be almost done. Really curious how the BI rads do the reviews were soso on them with the really high FPI.
Bedliner FTW! That stuff is almost as good as duct tape & vise gripz
Not sure if you sorted the RADs, but i'd stick to low FPI stuff for best efficiency. High FPI & low pressure/CFM fan = poor temps
For now I am keeping the high FPI rad's the fan I picked out is a reasonably high static pressure fan if it leads to being an issue I will swap for a higher end fan. There are plenty of immensely high static pressure fans out there just have to run them via PWM. The current fan is 2.94 mmH2O the Scythe linked is 15.25 mmH2O I am sure something can be figured out
If push comes to shove that will work on PWM. Not to mention Nidec makes them and it should work well undervolted.
It's on its way. I was told it should be there by Friday (fingers crossed). It works good.
For almost 3 weeks I used it to cool my over clocked i5-3570k and a HD7950 and it did a great job.
Good luck with it.
Thanks again can't wait for it to get here.
Time to finish it up! Thank you Sonda5 for your expedient shipping!
Changed a couple of things up. Managed to fit a 38mm ultra kaze in with the new radiator.
Very nice, It's all packed in there quite nicely. Are you still gonna shoot that red rad black? Or does it go with your color sheme good enough now?
I haven't decided yet I may leave it red and paint it when I swap internals.
Bleeding my loop right now. Something went wrong when I pinned the pump so had to take it down to bare leads.
I think it looks kinda cool with the red rad and red tubes.
I think it looks good red as well.
Seriously cool little RIG!
Thanks guys installing windows on it now everything seems good to go on it.
This should give a good balance between CPU and GPU. For some reason I had no issues last night cranking the CPU up to 4.2ghz, but this morning it is being a pain. Going to probably just leave it at 3ghz and call it a day. Plenty powerful at that speed.
Temps are also a lot better with the CPU at stock voltage vs 1.42-1.45v I imagine the PSU is thanking me as well. GPU temps peaked around 65C in Kombuster which is good because it means power usage should in theory be down as well.
OMG the cables they are burning my eyes!!!
The rest is top shelf bro
Yea I threw it together this morning around 3ish. It will eventually get fixed. Installing some ATi Theatre Pro 750's right now and just finished mapping it to the server. It is a quite nice little HTPC.
I imagine it's not, but the rad looks like it's touch the back of the GPU.
It is very close you can barely slide a sheet of paper in between and it touches the fitting.
Thats an awesome little WC'ed beast man
Going to try RMA'ing the board again. It wont stay stable even with 100% stock settings.
Hope the RMA people get you a good one.
Good news is I got temps down to 30c on the cpu with smart fan enabled so more or less silent until it's in a game.
Well selling the Intel side to grab an APU.
Yes I know the APU is slower, but even with dual graphics power consumption is much much lower. Which makes me a little less nervous running a 450w powersupply.
Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, L...
Probably going to swap the H70 back into it as well and run a graphics card that doesn't need water.
What I am looking at right now along with the 2x4GB kit of samsung low profile ram, dual red coolermaster sickleflows.
Have you tried using a different psu?
