Welcome to the club and nice setup!
Thanks I am only going to keep on making it better.
And nice job with this thread, I remember referring to it when I was doing my watercooling research.
Thanks, I try to keep it up to date with any new worth while development. But if you find anything new don't hesitate to let me know (water blocks, pumps, rads, etc).
Do you plan on water cooling the video card? Or are you looking to do something else?
I am not sure how long I am gonna have my 3870x2 and don't want to waste money on a block that will be useless when I upgrade. I am adding an MCR320 and have added another block to the board. I also want a Dtek Fusion to replace my Apogee.
well guess I'll join to
2X Dtek GPU V1
Laing D5 vario modded
3X pa 120.3
Masterkleer 7/16 tubing FTW
That's a tough decision there. I agree with you though I wouldn't want to invest in a FC water block for a video card I may upgrade later on. Let us know if you notice any temp difference with your Dtek Fuzion.
Welcome to the club philbrown23. This sounds like a nice setup. Do you have any pics to share?
Well there is one on here for 50 bucks that is mighty tempting and I am just deciding if I want to buy it. 50 bucks is easier to swallow then spending 150
And yeah Philbrown, lets see some pics of your setup when you get it in, or maybe some work in progress shots.
Jeez do you really plan on looping 3 Pa 120.3s in your loop, that is nutz.
Yes, $50 sounds a whole lot better. I say go for it as long as it's in working order. Just make sure you don't overtighten the screws and, make sure you look at your card to see if it's bent or not once you install the FCWB.
It would look pretty sweet installed and it would shut up the loud obnoxious noise it makes.
I have an extended warranty with futureshop and I am waiting for them to get a 4870x2 so my "defective card" can get replaced.
Ah, I see...
My card does make a very peculiar sound that only happens when I'm running games. It sounds like the card is crying, its a weird electronic interference sound and it bugs the crap out of me. So if futureshop would get a new card in I want this one replaced because I have never heard a video card make such strange sounds and I know it is not normal.
Sounds like a plan. I hope things work out for you.
Imma gonna join also this will be like the 4th club im in
specs are in sig. pics are in case gallery
Welcome to the club
what is the easiest way of draining the loop? and is water and dye just as good as a coolant? or anti freeze?
I like straight distilled water. Dyes well... dye everything and alcohol and things like acrylic resevoirs don't mix well. Easiest way to drain the loop is removing the hose that is at the lowest point in your loop.
i put red food coloring dye in it. was that a bad idea?
Only way to be sure is to drain the loop and see if parts got dyed as well. I have heard of ppl using food coloring, so I cant assume its all bad.
lowest point? thats also the hardest tube to get off for my rig
does your res or pump remove from the case easily....I have my pump mpounted with just enough extra tube to get it outside the case into a bowl, then I just pop off a line.
Any end that is easy to get at can be used, but the lower the better, so you dont have to adjust your case in funny ways to make the water flow out of a high spot.
May be a good time now to add a drain 'T" to the loop for the next draining if needed!
Can you link me to the shot of your PC after you got the water in it?
his will be a pain to drain best bet might be to take off a random tube and lay it on its side
i could do the res, i can pull it out of my case.
the only reason i ask is for when/if i get nehalem and or a silverstone TJ07
I just found this thread, and just read the fan section in the URL above. Realized I'd just spent a bunch of $$$ on a crap rad fan. I'll be back when I finish reading the rest of the thread. Mucho cool info to digest.
If you are looking for a TJ07 take a look at the one Fit is selling. He has done some things to it that make it better than stock.
