The second one...
Informations about Peltier elements:
Peltierelement 36W for GPUs
120,48€ (4 pieces)
Peltierelement 18W for Sdrams
179,52€ (6 pieces)
8 Tecs are here:
The others tecs will arrived 2 weeks later.
Powersupply is ordered:
350W Coolingpower is very high. Maybe, we can freeze the card for best o/c results.
Done with the "normal functional design" but we will take tho old design. I like this
1mm Coldbplate on RAM.
To the front, we will take thermalgrease.
To the back, we will use thermalpads too.
4 tecs on GPU and 6 tecs on ram.
We take a screw to push the pcb on the front cooler. Better is thermalglue, or we take a screw an a backplate. We have better temperatures.
We must defeated a plasticplate under the screw.
Acrylglastops must be changed in other material. We will use POM (black or white).
Acrylglas can broken because the temperatures differences.
Informations about isolation.
We need dough first to conserve the card. At first, the card must be protect with dough. But the dough will be cold too, to the tecs. There, we must isolate the dough too, with Armaflex. Armaflex is one of the best insolator. I think its a safe way.
Furthermore we can regulate the tecs with an controlpanel. With the controlpanel we can regulate the coolingpower.
May be from 400W - 100W.
thats nuts looking. your making me want to dig out my old FX5200 and start supercooling it.... come to think of it i do have a 8mb ATI Rage XL
that looks pretty epic
The front copperbaseplate is done:
New structur. 1mm to 0.3mm for cooler tecs. 4 hours of investement for this struktur. In the backcooler, same structur.
An electronics engineer draws up the control panel:
All provisionally done.
Here is the beauty:
In progress now...
oh god its beautiful.
Some tests for the green color.
nb. the painter will paint again because the quality is bad.
What do you think?
i think you need to start benching this yesterday.
The green color is good now.
Soon the next step...
Preparing the card with plastik 70:
Preparing the tec's:
this is very interesting. Taking a while to get it completed eh?
It does look pretty, doesn't it?
Im still not sure what all of the cabling is for though, and the power supply. I though this build was just to watercool a nostalgic card.
Tec watercooled card.
I already have the frequency world record on this card.
I want to beat it to have more marks on 3dsmark01 se.
pictures of it assembled hurry@!
