I remember those. I blew up 6 of the green ones. lol
I wasn't mad when tm killed my 3870, when whe was setting up the 3870 twerk... but when that baby was dead.... I cried...
old sexy stuff
whats that in the second pic? the cooler for the CPU?
I'd wager, yes. And that it's a laptop CPU.
Is that a stormtrooper?
^That pic in 3D would be awesome! I would definitely look down to see where that tube would go.
i finally got my cable from HongKong with the mail today ^^
but since i couldn't find one with a 90 degree angle on it, i needed to put a little to make my audio card sit lower in my case so my GTX570 will run a full x16 2.0 ^_^
two straps putting together holds it nicely in place
Took me ages to get this shot, not quite perfect but I love it.
The Corsair H60 is lovely all the way, but i am just not sure myself if it's safe for 24-7 use, i want one but still :/
Why do you say that? i'm panicking now lol
nah u shouldn't maybe it's just my fair of water and eletronic ^^;
Very cool. Often wondered how a PCI-E extension would work.
No problems with it so far I hope?
nope no problems, and it sounds the same as before
you should get yourself a custom loop, and spill a few puddles on your board... makes you much more confident, when its dried and still works!
Jokes aside, if the Unit would start to leak, and damage anything,i would bet,that Corsair (or the e-tailer that sold it to him) would probably cover the cost, of exchanging whats broken.
Here's something to wet your apatites for enhanced CPU cooling
it's the revolutionary Sandia Air Bearing Heat Exchanger you can read more about it here if you wish to
Several thousand RPM...hmm...I wonder how noisy that would end up being, and if i would ever need maintenance, since it's more mass than just a fan being spun.
This could and should be picked up by a PC cooling company soon
The largest amount of noise from a fan is caused by air on the fins, not by the motor, so this could be quite low-noise as well
idea sounds very good, i just cant understand, how the heat transfers effectively to the fins, if there is effectively an air gap between the base plate and the cooling fins... until now we needed TIM to fill air gaps, as air is very bad at transferring heat. if they would enclose it, and fill the gap with water,or a very liquid form of TIM, it could probably work tho, as i imagine
So if I read this correctly, the heat transfer is done by air
the gap is very small, microns in size (0.001) so not much air and the air that's there gets hot which heats the spinning fins apparently it's more efficient than a standard cooler using the FFHS style including those that use heat pipes
they also say it's very quiet even at high RPM's
