Unfortunely i'm in the US and it would cost a lot to get shipping for such a large case... Thanks a lot though I would definetly buy your cosmos s as it's already modded and ready for w/c... Sucks to be in the US huh??? Haha

Honestly, I could ship you the Cosmos S for around $25-30. It would just take like 5 days. Fedex and UPS ground can be cheap if you do it right.

as the loop goes from GPU to CPU, I see no difference from air temps on the CPU...but I still get 33c on the two cores of my X2 so I'm happy with that :D
now to save and add in the quad rad + fan controller..

well in this UK weather (was snowing today) I hit 25c on the CPU and 22c idle on the GPU...up to 40s/50s load for both
I'm happy with this but I need a fan controller :( lol
I'd also quite like money to buy my two DDC pumps with the new EK/XSPC tops..

pics I took all the way through, bear with me as I host them :D
FIRST OFF here's some quad pr0n; if popular I can host the original size images.



just to whet your appetite :laugh:
my new best friend in delrin flava, thanks aquacomputer







a tight fit but perfect for my sandwich-stack 3+4 rad combo :D






as it is on my desk atm...HDDs hit a whopping 12c load like this..:eek:


closeup, props to Fitty for shipping UK :) the green is just a reflection off the rounded edge..

sorry if this kills anyone's 56k..:rolleyes:

Looks sweet! What water dye is that? I'm doing a mATX DFI case, and I'm going all out UV Orange :D

sweet DD, I personally have something to confess:

my name is ex and I have a UV orange addiction :shadedshu

but yeah, feser one, with all the DFI gear should look sweet, and just in case you didn't see a reminder of the case when it's done:



so now you can see what's gonna happen with that aquatube, which is mighty hot AND has holes for LEDs - white delrin is semi-opaque = UV BLING :pimp:

my second rig (lan rig for a friend who only has an integrated lappy, shed a tear) is going to be a cheap Phenom 1 tri-core + 790GX rig which I can watercool as soon as I get my upgrades for this rig (superceding + upgrading means spares) so that'll be yellow, and done in a miniature style of the TJ07..rounded ;)

Looks incredible man. I also have something to confess.

I convinced my girlfriend to pitch in $400 cash to solve my PC and UV Orange withdrawals :p

Speaking of UV Orange, I'm looking to sleeve my brand new Enermax all UV Orange, but I've got a choice. I can get the AC Ryan sleeving kit, or I can get a generic one. I'm trying to find the best deal.

I'm also doing individual cables (like seperate sleeving for each cable on the 24 and 6 pins at least) and am trying to get a kit and matching sleeving by the foot, and I'm having a really hard time doing that. Any suggestions?

lmfao :laugh: dude my gf would if I'd let her, I can't bring myself to steal her uni fund...yet :rockout:

by the foot? you might want to try industrial or commercial electrician-style sites, rather than kits...you'll need a molex tool, and appropriate end connections, but other than that you can find it in bulk online on such sites...might help rather than paying $10-20 for a kit and realising you need several...I'd go AC Ryan as a basis then buy in bulk over the top of it perhaps? if you can..

There is a review of EK D5 X-Top Rev 2. For those that have D5 pumps.
It also seems that the Scythe 120x25mm Slisptreem fans are becoming popular. In particular the SY1225SL12SH which produces 110CFM at 37dBA
The review is pretty sweet! I looked and found it at Sidewinder for $39.99. I think it is a nice set up if you have the motor itself..


I bought the pump add on.. I thought what the hell.. Needed something nice for my birthday! lol So, I'll be showing it all when I get it in!!

As for the fans... Yeah, I have 5 of the 110cfm/37db "slipstreams". I love those things! For some reason, those going, sound so Much better then the Yateloons that I had at 88cfm/40dbs... I also have one on the HR-03 GTX cooler, and one blowing upward.. I'm loving those fans! Can't beat them for $7.99!!!

sound awesome matey :D what speed are you running them? brave man (with hardy ears) to run at 40db +
I got migraines with my stock 4870X2 cooler..lol

also I just went into town to meet Cuzza who came to Bath for a little sightsee and to drop off me a nice oldschool beige tower for my second pc.. :)
so that beast (it is and all my limbs know it, carrying it by hand up a 1km hill :() will be modded and then watercooled when my new parts (waiting to see the new PA120.4 first but generally a x4 fan rad and two DDC3.2 pumps) arrive, transporting the old into the 'new' beige case :D

Can't wait to see it all done for you man! Can't wait!!

As for dbs... I've had Delta fan's running on a Xig S1283 that had db rating of 55... Those where ones that would give you migraines from the start!!! lol.. After those fans, I went away from air cooling.. Couldn't take them anymore!!

I hope you can show us the real thing soon Cda!!! I think it looks sweet!

All right guys got the Ek Top for the pump a few mins ago.





As you can see, It has Ek's Stamp!!! So it's real




Here is a picture with everything that came in the small lil box!






The last picture shows the o-ring that comes with the stuff. That way you can see that they do supply it. Also, you will need to change it out per Instructions stating to.

very nice C-dawg :D - as my TJ will be for silence I have a little plan up my sleeve involving throwing myself at possible sponsors once I get my case anodised/powdercoated ;)
CS matey how loud does your D5 sound? I don't see it being worth the added cost for me over the DDC3.2 with new EK top..as I want two (for redundancy/flow)

Well, for it the reason for the top was this.. It was birthday money.. Plus, for me, it was better to do so. It does give it a better difference to do the change, and I have more of the ability to mod this case for where ever I want to put this pump.. I don't have to worry about the the top since it would be two fronts..

CDA is that triangular hole for looks or what? either way it looks good, I think I'd rather move the four rad holes on the base to the 'back' as there's a gap there? was thinking about a pyramid case build as they're strong due to the shape and offer good space if you can mount the motherboard suspended/on a shelf..hm :D

Are you able to tell which top performed the best and the worst (between 1.0GPM and 2.0GPM) just by looking at the design?
Never seen the Detroit Therm tops... I gotta say, i do love my EK top rev 2!! Made my life so much better with the loop! SOOOO much!!!

HAF case - 320 radiator inside on top - Modding case Fan?

I orginally had this thread in Case Modding sneekypeet suggested it here (so blame him :)) - http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?p=1223029#post1223029

Here's the story:

Building a W/C HAF case. Bottom part is done - plan to post that soon.

I'm working on the top where the radiator will go. It's a 320 Swiftech, I'm also putting a Koolance fan/temp monitor control PCB at the front top.

Wondering how best to use (or not use) the top 240mm fan in the mix. The radiators will have 3 x 120mm fans, with RPM controlled by the Koolance monitor.

The idea of push/pull is good, so I'd like to keep the fan,

Here's the top:



Here's the top with the 240mm fan:



Here's the radiator on the fan:



Here's the radiator without the fan:



Looking to reduce dead spots... so here's the parts to cut off. I obvisouly can't cut out the center of the fan. ;)



What to do? Thoughs and advice appreciated.

That fan really isn't going to cut it for pushing air through a radiator. If you want push/pull, six low/med. speed 120mm's would work best.

Hate to leave the 240mm doing nothing, so in this pic, there are 3 x 120mm rads on the bottom of the radiator, the fan on top is helping - pushing air out (down towards the table).

Trying to use everything at hand...
