Don't know what happen to my stuffs but it's back.
Sounds like exactly what you'd need for a good cruncher! I'd probably even skip CCleaner and Defraggler, but I'm lazy like that, so there we go
LMK if you need a W7 COA---I can help you out there.
You may wish to consider MSI Afterburner to OC that GPU a bit--seems a shame not to
He decided my offer (7300 gt for his 7970) was to good to refuse so he will not need Msi's program.
When gpu wu's were around. I could get 130k with a 1300/1800mhz 7970. Overclock it!
That will depend on power usage vs ppd gained.
First step will be to put it all together and make sure it's stable
My parts are due in tomorrow
I don't know what your thinking man, I am sending him two, not one but two 8800GTX's for that 7970
Heck, two cards is better than one; right?
Don't low temps make processors, like a gpu, use less power. Might be worth it. You could probably even clock it to 1000mhz and undervolt if you really wanted to. Depends on the card though.
I request many pics of your trials and tribulations.
I Run Avast and Malware Bytes, another utility that can help in a pinch is unlocker
Lower temperatures do bring down power usage a bit, but it's not huge. When temps approach the TJMax, then power usage does get higher (further worsening the issue) but the difference is probably less than the additional power required to overclock.
Subb'd!!Cant wait to see how this turns out Norton!! =) =)
All of the other parts came in so I'll be working on it this weekend
Made one miscalculation on tubing/fitting size- the H220 comes with 3/8"x5/8" and I bought 3/8"x1/2" tubing and fittings I don't think it's a really big deal (same ID on both types) and worst case I may end up at the hardware store for a couple of clamps....
Awesome!!Cant wait to see your progress!
Do it NAO!!!! I want pics already
Will definitely be working on it this weekend- pics will be incoming when I get started.
Need to stop at the local hardware store for some unexpected small items this afternoon
Pro tip: when going to the hardware store for misc parts for any project (home improvement included), but a few extra of what you need. It's easier to return them than it is to stop what you're doing and go back. This saved my butt on some plumbing work a few times.
its worse when stuff was getting ordered from the net, i ran out of shrink, broke tool and had to re order and wait lol
OH and hurry up with the pics already
I tend to do the same when ordering from the internet ships if I have enough cash to do so. That way I'm not stuck for a fitting or something and on top of having to wait for another part, having to pay more in shipping that the part itself.
And when I'm done I'll sell the extras in the forums here
Here's a quick "under construction" pic:
So far nothing has fit where I intended.... ended up fitting the 240 rad in the front due to it being nearly impossible to fit up on top (the case only has 140mm mounts on top- no 120's)
I think the rads will work out fine where they are but still have a bunch of other fitting/testing to do
On nothing fitting where you want it too, thats like half the fun of watercooling for me. Anyone can build a computer but it takes thought to put together a watercooling system.
Ah yes, you seem to have discovered the joy of watercooling projects--nothing works quite how it should
Where is your HDD going to go? And will you be using the TX850?
I may swap the Seasonic X-Gold into it but will stick with the TX850 for now.
No idea where the HDD will go atm- would like to get part of the HDD bays back in but haven't figured that out yet
I have both my hdd's behind my motherboard tray. Give me a minute, I'll get a picture up.
Quickly taken pictures while computer is running still. But they get the idea across.
I used that stuff you can buy to hang pictures without nails. The ssd does not like to stick to the 5.25 inch bays too well but the hdd holds on to the radiator really tightly.
You could also put your hdd's in your 5.25 inch bays.
Is it Alive?
Should have it up and running late this afternoon (working this am followed by a Father's Day lunch with my son).
Here's what's been finished so far:
- 120 and 240mm rads installed
- H220 drained
- Drain and Bleed valve assemblies installed
- CPU block/pump tubing completed
- GPU tubing installed
Left for today:
- Install GPU/trim tubing for a nice fit
- Straighten out tubing layout
- Install block/pump on CPU
- Fill and leak test
- Reassemble case/cable management
- Test drive/take pics
Should be an hour or two of work to complete
Still not thrilled about the positioning of the rads but it is what it is- I'll save reconfiguring them for a future upgrade depending on how this project turns out....
