Is that a rebranded Hyper TX3?
just to make my mothers rig more overkill i bought her this
this used to be her mobo
specs on the left
Ok my new NZXT Tempest 410 arrived! I got it all put together but ran into some problems with the power switch. I fixed it in no time and shes running good! I took my time and did the best cable management I could have done. It is by far the best looking case I have ever owned. I still have not installed the cathodes but they will be next
This is what the issue was. It seems to have a big pit in the silicon between the solder point and the copper leads. As you see from the second picture I simply soldered both together and it works fine now.
Good catch on the Brandon. I would have probably missed that.
I only caught it cause the damn thing refused to power up LOL, Its a analog connection so I knew there was bound open connection somewhere.
Nice case Brandon! And good job on the switch!
That Heat sick is masive. IS it sucking air right the back of the GPU
Still have some work to do, but for now this will do.
D: Do you not have a pump?!
Swiftech h220-20X Edge all in one liquid cooling setup. Pump and reservoir are built into the radiator. I'm running at 23c. artic silver 5 compound. Very easy to install, and preforms well. Price is a little steep, but I got mine for a great deal.
Awesome, it makes for a super clean build!
The bottom fan is obviously suffocating.
I know this is not a PC nor is it mine, it was a machine I was upgrading for a customer and this is the first time I've seen a Mac Pro's insides and I was amazed how freaking clean it was! It only had one cable standing out which was the PCIE connector to the GPU, hands down the cleanest and so far greatest tool-less case design I've seen oh and the graphics card was actually facing upright.
2x Intel Xeon dual X5650
8x 4GB 1333mhz RAM
1x ATI 5770
2x WD 2TB Enterprise
Everything else was integrated onto the motherboard which oddly splits into two parts, one part being secured onto the panel the other part which is conjoined by some IDE connection looking thing is a pull out tray to upgrade the CPU and RAM.
OK now back to PCs, something to wash your eyes out with, my WC setup
That Mac Pro is awesomely clean!!! Oh and yours is not too shabby either (JEALOUS )
Are those huge blocks heatsinks?
Yep they are, all mac pro's seem to have them.
I love MacPros too. As much as Macs get knocked, the fit and finish of the hardware design is very rarely matched. Once they got rid of the leaky watercoolers. I have replaced no less than 30 broken LC units in Mac Pros.
it looks like it but it actually does quite well.
At my school, my Computer Tech/Networking class(Class for Seniors and Juniors, ROP Class), we are working on this. I know that we're going to build some project with an Antec 300 case, a AMD M4 series mobo, 500gb hdd(Going to install Windows 7 in it), and an AMD Athlon x2 @ 3.0ghz, 4gb DDR3 1333mhz and an Antec 380w PSU.
I only have 1 picture of the Antec 300 case. Sorry for the shi**y camera phone quality. 3.2 mega pixel.
Are they passive?
Nope, there's a fan in one end inside the fins.
Update to how my build is going per request....
Re Did Water Cooling Tube
Installed White LED light (Which in real life fads from White to blue very nicely but in the pic looks too bright)
Installed Blue fans
Finished cable management.....
Things still to do....
Bought different fans then these..... (these are too bright and too much blue)
Experimenting with lighting
False Floor Mod (to cover PSU and PSU cables)
vinyl Decal Mod Inside of case
Front fan controller
Z77 Motherboard when releases.
Again I will be taking professional pictures when done!
Sweet looking case, NZXT 810?
Um your PSU is upside down sucking in hot air from within the case other than that it's mighty fine lookin build
The way the fans are set up..... Not so much....
Plus from my experience it doesn't make that much of a difference.
Also it's bottom mounted.... Heat rises. If it were on the top you would be correct.
I have had PSU's flipped either Direction.... In some cases I have found it to help this way. In this case I am doing it because I liked the look of the top of the PSU
