Huh...looks good..how the liquid metal CPU cooler treating ya?
Too much for me if im honest. Really considering losing it and going with a full loop or a highend normal air cooler. Noctua or Thermalright etc.
Looking good Mp. Makes me want to build a desk so I can do a little mod of myself! Nice work man. Love the second one as much as the first.
I think you might like to have fun with a water loop. I can see you adding a dual rad on the door. Would look sweet, and nice to have the room for it.
I would add one there, but i like the freedom of easy opening and taking off (changed the door fans about 100 times this week).
I think i'll get a PA120.3 (or similar) and mount it like the last loop, under the middle. Then run the tubing into the case where it'll simply go in, cool the cpu, cool the GPU(s) and straight back out. Hide the Res and Pump.
Just need to decide what to do first:
Sell LMX and get a CPU only loop
Sell LMX and get a second 4870 and a mid/high end heatsink
Sell LMX and 4870 and get mid/high end heatsink and update GPU.
looking very good indeed, I'd love to see peoples looks if you were to bring it to a LAN event
Pah, i'd just take my 'media-center'. Gunna be changing some hardware this week, we can play a nice game of 'Spot the Difference'.
Too bad you weren't on this side of the pond..I'd like to play with an LMX.
I'm kinda jealous..that's one good desk mod.
Changed my plan, again.
Should be quite different come Tuesday night
Wish UKers were as enthusiastic as some USers about this LMX
Very, very sharp.
Do you have good temps with the C12P? It was just barely enough for my 4GHz C0, but then again, I had to pump a lot more volts through it.
So you going back to water or not?
Idle: 23 30 41 34 (41 and 34 are broke)
Load: 44 39 44 44 (LinX)
Id say they were good.
I recognise that cooler!
Glad you got good temps with it, I always found it treated me good.
I know that cooler all ways treated me good while I had it in my system! Now, going into my dad's insane htpc
Looking good Moonpig!
Nice, and the best part about the Noctuas is the lack of noice. If only I had an E0...
Keep up the good work mate.
Ops, should of updated this:
Looks Great, Especially Through The Looking Glass, I Thought The Wires Would Show But They Don't, Extremly Impressed, I Wish I Had That Skill, I Still Have A Pain In The Ass Tryin To Get Normal Crap Into a mATX Mid Tower. Good Job.
The only thing I have issue with, and I am amazed by the quality and ingenuity of what you have done, is the choice of desk.
Well, about 10 years ago, this desk was made (from scratch) for my by a family friend. The quality of it ment it cost shit loads.
Im not just going to discard it.
I undertand entirely and aesthetics, after all, are entirely subjective. I'm sure it's an excellent piece of furniture, I just don't like the look of it.
it's a nice mod MoonPig ^^
even though i love my Cooler-Master CM690II Advanced
Look closely at the case... you might notice some 'similarities'
