I dont see the words in there. Sorry. Maybe remove your sunglasses
LiquidMac I5 v1.2
Well, as i lost the effect on Mayhem Aurora Tharsis (due to the Apogee XT, didn't read it was incompatible ) ... had concerns about the GFX temperature and also uncomfortable loudness ... i decided to upgrade again so:
- Added MCW82 to the loop with Enzotech full copper heatsinks for RAM (6mm high) and VRM's (9mms high -active cooled with a 50mm fan-)
- Changed coolant to EK-Ekoolant Blue UV matching RAM's one
- Fixed radiator and added pressure with white foam and foam rubber to minimize vibrations.
- Added a 5-Fan controller (they're controlling the 4 push->pull fan plus from rad the 60mm that active cools the pump placed under the rad)
- Improved a lot cable management, inside and outside.
Temps so far:
- CPU idling from 23ºC to 28ºC
- CPU crunching (WCG just CPU) from 39ºC to 42ºC
- GPU idling from 31ºC to 33ºC
- GPU under Diablo III (1920x1080) all on max settings after 30 min from 45ºC to 47ºC
PS: I should do a worklog compiling all my posts in this thread
yeah your pictures looks like scanned pics, and the color kinda purple
but you have nice case just improve it little bit and done
That's an awesome setup! You did a great job modding that case!
What are those "G5s" at the bottom of the case?
Thanks man! Maybe great job is too much for me since as always is a never-ending improve work ... but sincerely, modesty apart, i think i did a good job and i love the way it likes now since i very first placed components into it! So thanks again
Those "G5s" plates are from the original heatsinks from the G5 as you can see here:
They are a thin aluminum plate that can be removed easily from the top of the heatsink, right now i'm using them to cover the hard disks (in case of accidental leak ) and providing more dissipation, cool thing is also beautifying bottom of the case
I used also the double ones from another model to make a "decoration" for the top part as you can see in this picture (it's from the previous update)
I will be doing more pics tomorrow since now is a lil bit late (4:40am) to move the tower and maybe starting a worklog, can be interesting for future upgrades
the walls are actually some what purplish pink, the original owners of the house didn't know how to paint
Trying not to double post
got the 570 back up and running for testing and after disassembling the thing cleaning it reapplying some antec formula 7 re-soldering a cap back on and reassembling a loop, i think i might just keep it the way it is and slap a nice quiet blow down air cooler on the cpu.
the quiet factor on the build is far exceeding my expectations for the kind of power that's in it right now. the only thing i can hear is the pump and i have to have my ear on the front of the case to even hear it buzzing.
i used a PPCS 5.25 hard drive mount to mount the silent box for the pump so not only is it covered in foam from all sides to help deaden the noise but its also isolated from the case via huge rubber "wheels", it worked out quite nicely
Here is my case finished
I'm at a loss for words. That's godly. I like the industrial look
On my end I finally moved the server into a case:
The empty space below the board will be later occupied by an HDD cage.
Here's my system, a bog standard Raidmax Smilodon, not the best case (it has no wire management), but meh, I found it by a dumpster.
How did you fit the mini-ITX board? I mean since Elite 360- they never listed it supported mini-ITX boards>? Although I've always suspected that it does, but did you have to drill something?
mini itx still uses the same standard ATX mounts just only the top left most 4, so itx will fit pretty much any case
WOW nice build
Thank you guys for your comments
Nice pc..i like old school
I found my pc case in a computer dump too!!!!
hd6770? Loved my old one.
Just added a fan, 660 stays as cool now, when given a healthy overclock, as it was @stock before
Now I just gotta need to the extra $$ for an SSD, sound card, and RAM
My s939 Sli rig awaiting it's PSU to return from RMA.
I'm curious how the Koolance units do nowadays with all the competition from other closed loop water cooling systems, amazed their even still in business. Back in early 2000, they were basically the only thing like it beyond custom kits from Danger Den and Swiftech
A quick photo of the build Im working on inside the HAF XB.
WOw, is that server board? How'd the inside get so dusty already? Be sure to post pics in the HAF XB club
Ive had this case for a long time,2 days before launch to be exact...and my house was built in the stone age so it tends to attract dust. lol
Where do you see the dust man? It's the carpet you see through the bottom of the case. hehehe
I see dust on the mobo tray and around fans, its kinda tan ish colored looking. How the hell did you get the HAF XB so early before it launched?
