You must paint the ram fins white now.
not all that bad of an idea. May try that when I get some more time.
hope you have some airflow going over that memory of they will degrade due to heat.
You could say so.
Always one step ahead. Cool like ice cube when I touch them
A test bench is all fine and dandy but it really requires PPE*. Ordered a custom built 'cover' for it. Complete with mounting and space for side fan.
Unfortunately i had to glue the front piece myself (Tensol 12 glue sent by company) and this resulted in hairline fractures on the acrylic for some weird reason.
*Personal Protective Equipment if you don't do health and safety
wow! i love the look of it! im inspired!
I've been thinking about running a test bench and just making some kind of box to fit over it like a normal PC.
First lets clean off some thermal paste
Is the everclear for drinking while benching? If so, that is not a good idea.
wonderfull news ... the seller got it wrong the motherboard will not be a ASUS P6T SE but ...a
ASUS Rampage III Extreme wooooooohooohoooo! cant wait till i get my hand on those ... just too bad the 12gb ram is 1 kit 3x2gb corsair 1600 and 1 kit Patriot 1600 but i think if he sells it together that mean they work fine together 2nd concern is those ram have high heatspreader and the Macho hang above the 1st slot on a AM3 board i wonder on a 1366 ...
Replaced an aged Hyper 212 with a TR Macho...I want to be a macho man, and it looks cool, but it doesn't seem to be better than the 212 by leaps and bounds. Also replaced all case fans with the Corsair SP120 high performance PWM's, which are serious air pumpers. Never going to retire this old Lancool case.
future generations will look back upon us and wonder...... that cpu cooler looks like it'll snap a board in time...
not even close to do it... thermalright fixation are pretty good
i use a HR-02 and a IFX14 (wich is a bit heavier than the macho) if everythings is done right then nothing can go wrong unless you shake your case like a retard
even a CM V10 is fine in a standard case
gosh i love my HAF XB
cleaned up, new tubes, new resovair, now im only running on destiled water
i disavice anti freeze! it creates a sandly like foam in the res
I agree, the retainers TR uses are a little more complicated, but they are very secure and seem to do a good job spreading the load around to the back plate anchors. Thankfully on the Macho they have moved to threaded screws on the anchor plate, rather than the spring loaded system used on the Silver Arrow (possibly others) that allowed you to possibly use way too much mounting pressure.
been a while since i posted in here, my pc has had 2 or 3 cases since but i figured as it's is running without again atm i would share it with you
still need to decide on a top coat of the bench top as that's just a flatted primer.
That cooler looks massive
it is yes xD
best £35 i ever spent on my pc that
Decided to go small but powerful
Asus Maximus VI Impact
Gigabyte Windforce 3 GTX760 4GB
2x4gb Corsair Dominator GT 2000MHz
OCZ Vertex 3 128GB
Toshiba 3tb 7200rpm drive
Looks sweet! Best cable management ive seen in the Prodigy.
IFX 14 from thermalright i have one sitting in a box at home till i find something (i think i posted some pics of it in nostalgic hardware and even in that topic, yep http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2951813&postcount=1141)
i paid mine ~20eur (that remind me i got a Prolimatech MK-26 + 2 Noiseblocker Blackframe 140mm for 39eur and a reference Zotac GTX580... wating on the post delivery )
oh its a i7 Hotwell uh? Haswell i mean under that IFX hummm if so i can use mine for my next i7-920 instead of the HR-02 Macho
Some new fans to cool the GPUs down. It needed more air
is that lockable drive bay thermaltake device a hdd enclosure?
I might be needing on eif it is.
good job on the fans btw
Built a new rig since last I posted. Specs in sig.
