never ran single fans if i get a chance later i will unplug half of them
just bolt it to the back wall above the rad..
Shrouds do localize the direction of air flow but having a fan with good air pressure should perform adequately. One thing it does allow is the added space between the fan and the radiator. Which in turn allows the fan to run at it's spec. when that particular fan has issues when butted against grated or finned array. So if the fan is weak in that regard a shroud would help it.
well i got a MCR220-QP-STACK on its way it is officially shipped now had to hunt down a shop on google that had one to get it...even swiftech is out of them.
mostly installed need to order another 120x38 to swap my 120x25mm fans that are currently installed and a 45 degree fitting. not to bad for about an hour of work putting that stupid rad in
loop now has a combined 120x9 planning on another MCR320QP-stack in the bottom i swear i will squeeze that bastard in
looks nice, and the plans sound sweet.... but why the hell do you use that cheap,ugly tubing?
surely ruins the looks of an otherwise interesting build
how are the temps with the new rad?
its cheap and i have not had a chance to test it yet
here are my plans...
very basic 3D cad drawing of it this was kinda thrown together just to get an idea on paper no real dimensions were used
Hell, I have 3 38mm Ultra Kaze 3000s you could have for shipping. They're too damn loud, even on a controller. At low volts they make the little "tick tick tick" common to fans of that nature.
well whaddaya know
A sack of flour makes a helluva big donut.
in china, a sack of rice fell over.
anyone see this yet?
it's great for the price. Nice for some noob... But, I still like Ek's cooling kit
way more expensive but a wayyyyyy better kit
Yeah, the price can scare some.. but, I just relooked at the Larkooler.. It has Mosfet cooling.. Wonder how well it does.. I like it all but the fans
But, I don't know about the CPU cooler.. it seems kinda "small" for what they picture..
its probably similar to the old thermaltakes to be honest...you know i looked at the prices and then went through how much my rig cost lol pumps alone retail close to the larkooler cost
It could very well be a new "therm" build.
I'm thinking of grabbing a the new Koolance D5 Duel res. I think it would be nice in the Pedestal. Right in the middle of the side panel.
god $130 is a bit of a kick in the teeth though!
hey does anyone know were i can find some old 3870X2 blocks i am trying to build some water for my brothers rig
Yeah, it is... Thinking of a bay type res now.. Or, doing two loops, and grabbing one (two) of this (these) and playing with the front..
My first build had FrozenQ's res in it.. But, that think leaked all over via the bottom.. Thank god I didn't have it hooked in the case..
Well, I noticed a white line of waxy, soap scum feeling jazz on the sides of my 60mm res tube that I just replaced with a 100mm tube, so I want to give my loop a good flushing. I'm thinking it's from the tubing, or from the collodial silver I added to my distilled water.
Should I add some white vinigar to the loop, run it for a while, then flush it out with more distilled water? I've never done it, and was hoping not to have to remove any components from my case.
IIRC, it was supposed to be a 50/50 mix, but I'll let the others chime in.
either way, straight or 50/50. The mix is easier to clean after, less rinsing, full strength will take more rinsing
Got it all flushed out, added 3 more GTs (making 7 total), and swapped the 60mm tube on my EK res with a 100mm one for more capacity. It's now whisper quiet. The only thing left is to swap my PSU with a new Seasonic, and probably 3 more GTs on the back of the tripple.
my oooold koolance PC2 case....
I need to pick up a few new fans for the radiator, other than that I love it...
4x delta tfc1212de and 6x VA450DC i think both sets are 220CFM
