That is a whole lot of awesome coming out of one little tackle box.
Nice Radbox!! I have been thinking about getting my butt into gear and fitting the 5970 waterblock. Thermal pads check ,MX-3 Check, Spare tube check, Distilled water Check. Hmm I guess that leaves me with no excuse does it? I have all I need.
Got nothing better to do at work don't you?
great job non the less
That actually came out really good. Love it!
Noob question: Radbox? I've actually never heard/seen of those. What does it help you do?
It's just a place to mount everything externally in one unit. I'll be adding one or two (depending on space) 120mm rads in there along with my MCP355 w/res. top. Basically, I plan on cutting holes at the top for the tubing and power connections, then cut a hole in the bottom of my Lian Li V1000 case. I'll then just set the case on top of the radbox and feed the tubes right up to the blocks.
A very unique solution. Good job.
Are those hollowed-out 120mm fans for a shroud of sorts? I assume they're not double-stacked working fans...
I believe in this case it are just empty fan shrouds, as you say, but combining 2 fans would also make perfect sense to me. Have you made any negative experiences with that, or is that just highly uncommon?
Count me in, I love my H50
I could see the fans being slightly different speeds from each other, and that causing them to work against one another. Usually if you have two fans, you would have one on each side of the rad, unless in this case you are using one that is hollowed out to bring another fan up off the rad to eliminate a dead spot.
would that also be the case,even if they are exactly the same? (take or give about 100-200 rpm the fan is off from spec)
i know the classic push pull config, but i always asked myself if stacking the same fan may increase the air pressure, and if so, to what percentage compared to a single fan
I think it would be impossible to match the fans, but I could be just talking out may arse.
This just came in the mail. Hopefully, it will be quieter than my 655b. If so I plan on unloading it.
The Double Pen 1200?
How much for the 655 if you dump it? I'm debating moving away from my DDC based pumps to the D4/5 series.
I damn near PMd you because of this:
But, I didn't:shadedshu

It was brand new in Feb, the original I bought used was goofy loud.
I'm really liking my Jingway.
AH shit balls! Oh well. Win some lose some I guess. lol.
I had to give up my dreams of the rad box tower, because I have to give up my office to make room for a new baby. Instead, I just mounted my extra res to the back of my tripple rad. Now, for better or worse, am running two reserviors, it was just easier to leave the micro.
Also, I skipped using the mounting hardware for my new Jingway, and just heaped padding around it. Makes it totally quiet. I was wondering if this would make it run too hot. It does have a 140mm right in front of it, and water moving through it. It feels cool to the touch. Any thoughts?
MT Alex, i have the SAME EXACT PUMP! i love it but im going AIR soon and will be getting rid of all my water cooling
I like it too. It's quiet as a mouse and pisses like a race horse.
Let's ressurrect this thread with a question. I'm deploying in March and would like to know, should I dismantle my loop or can it stay without use for 3+ months at a time?
I'm going to be on leave 2-3 times in the next 9 months, so the setup would be offline for about 3 months at a time.
i would dismantle it, especially if you have dye in the water, it gets soooo nasty when it just sits there for months
even with regular water i would do it.
Personally, I would go to air for the time that your "away"... This way your safe in everything that happens.. No corrosion of the tubes, water leaking, that sort of thing.. Yeah, with the new stuff that has came out, it probably wouldn't happen.. But, still.. I'd rather be safe and not have to spend XXX because I came back from duty and saw my loop bone dry, and nothing working anymore..
just my 2cents
will get better shots later
also.... the water is getting purple'ish, should i change it ? it was just distilled water, and i use those black uv tubes, is that what is coloring my water?
