what card is that?
Its a FireGL
ok ok ok.... cheesy, I know. I couldnt resist!
looks like a 9700pro
lol nice one d44ve...Made me giggle!
ok that does it no TEC cooling for me.I was thinking about getting water cooling set up than putting a TEC on my GPU but that has turned me away.
its not that bad if you remember to make sure everything work right before you boot up it wont be an issue
you figured bridge builder yet???????
yes.i have thanks 4 ask n
post some scores then
nice work Wile E . uh, you've got home owners insurance right? might want to explore exploiting such if you do . my last TEC solution (a Swiftech MC370-2) ended just about as badly as yours but for a time i had my K6-III 450 running at 600MHz. every time i think of using a TEC i think of the sparks shooting out from my system...

Well if you going to blow some shit up thats the way to do it, to bad you wernt there to see it happen must have been impresive... Sorry for your loss
I wish I could been there too!!!
id probably be more upset being there when it blows up.
yeah man this sort of thing happens alot, lol. thats why this time around I took the highest precautions possible, I dont have pics of my first suare into TEC but trust me mine was disatrous. Tottally get back on the horse though man, you live, you learn, NEVER leave a new TEC setup running while you are gone ulti you know it's integrity. Good luck man.
Holy heatsinks Batman! How did I miss this thread. OMG! What a mess!
WOW, just followed the link from Pancho's PSU thread, I'm impressed with that. Did you ever get the processor working again?
No. It was fried. (quite literally, it seems. lol)
No real surprise there then, made for a good read though, cheers.
Dude, you have EXACTLY the right attitude!!
Most geeks are timid, frightened, reticent, apologetic, permission-asking dweebs. That's also why girls don't like them. But you don't HAVE to be that way!
I am building a custom cooling loop with a 24v, 420-watt TEC. Yes, that's not a typo. Half a kilowatt of cold.
I already killed a motherboard and a CPU from condensation. I had the CPU insulated with silicone, but it cot so cold that the other side of the MB froze. I could have given up and run everything at stock. Instead, I sprayed the new MB on both sides with waterproofing sealant.
Then I melted a pump that was built into the waterblock of a prebuilt liquid cooler. I was all downhearted because I had destroyed my spiffy new watercooling system on the first day.
But what did I do? I ordered a 3-fan radiator, and an asskick pump that I put AFTER the radiator in the loop!
I know something else will probably go wrong. In fact, I am waiting for a backup motherboard to become available next month before I throttle the TEC up to a full 24 volts.
But I HAVE TO overclock due to a life-or death health issue: if I couldn't fuck with fast computers, I'd just DIE!

6 years. Thats how far back this thread was. 6 damn years.
Yea I saw this on my alerts and was wondering why I was subbed to this.....
I need to get another TEC up and running :/
So does Wile E.
I wonder how it wasn't archived
