    Eh, because it's GREEN, and I don't own Nvidia cards :laugh: No, this is first time using coolant instead of distilled in years, and I wanted to go for a black and red theme; thus the green wouldn't quite sit right.

    I was generally speaking. Why people get scammed by computer coolant instead of real heavy duty coolant? Other than color whats the reason? Just add food coloring to real coolant thats it.

    Dex Coolant is Red, or pink once it get's old...two years running through an Engine...It changes color to pink-ish.

    If you run it through your computer, and it starts to turn Pink? You are one lazy fu*k!! :roll:

    ok so i was playing a bit with my workstation: reversing ODD/HDD/FAN cage to improve the airflow on the nForce 2050 chipset... who is quite a scorcher :D and testing a cheap thermal compound from GD china, Ebay around 1€ for 1g so i decided to give it a try on the Opterons (you can see the syringe on the desk) >2.0W/m-k i have seen worse deal ...: "Spire Bluefr[W]o[R]st" 2.8W/m-k and 4€ for 0.5g a little test and i will see if i have to go back to my beloved MX-4, i ran across the TPU wallpaper thread ... well ...

    IMG_20140529_140423_848.jpg IMG_20140529_140441_313.jpg IMG_20140529_140553_142.jpg
    i just noticed ... i have a Ubuntu sticker on my rack but i use Win7 64 Pro ... aherm ... woops

    and i fiddled with my Razr i panorama pics mode... well not quite the good one :roll: unless my screen and 19" rack are the flexible type ... 1st try : mild fail xD
    IMG_20140529_140359_077.jpg

    i wonder why i didn't see the TPU wallpaper thread before xD what you see on the left is my Toshiba Folio 100 (CM10.1 4.2.2) who is reconverted into a monitoring screen since i hate wasting electronics even if the screen is completely cracked from top left to bottom right (barely noticeable tho)

    The school gave me £40,000, so I bought WQHD 1440p and i5's

    Also the room is enormous, has the height and width of two classrooms, and full height windows looking out on nothing but greenery. Truly a gorgeous sight.

    looks totally awesome and cool :D (wait those units are Dell SFF? or HP Compaq?)

    also stress testing my 2 Opteron 248 while playing BF3 (THANKS ORIGIN!) on the main rig ... well it seems that Chinese TIM is not half bad for the price paid... 46°-48° CPU01 and 49°-51° CPU02 (Prime95 x64 100% load) on super quiet fan profile (Supermicro H8DCE) monitoring the rig on my Tablet (gosh that Trigone monitoring software is good )
    IMG_20140528_111046_559.jpg IMG_20140529_220837_828.jpg
    i might order some more for the next clean'n repast session if the test conclude on a good point (spread test and corrosion test after the stress test, but they advertise it as non bleeding and non corrosive, altho not non conductive it seems)

    ok 1 more debt to clean and i will be able to surf again on the "high end" side of the upgrades ... wooopeee! i can't wait to be back into upgrades and bench mode!

    Novatech SFF, specifically the specs are:

    25 x
    i5 4440
    Gigabyte B85M-HD3
    2 x 4GB CL9 1600Mhz RAM
    300W Bronze PSU's
    Samsung Evo 250GB SSD
    Novatech SFF Chassis with groovy little clip on feet

    Plus an extra 25 machines with identical spec, but with i3's in instead, and LG bezel-less 23 inch IPS monitors, but I'm setting up those tomorrow ;)

    Let's be DS bros! I found installing hardware into this thing almost as easy as installing a testbench! The only issue you need be aware of, is if you intend to install your own 230mm fan (I've installed a Bitfenix Spectre 230mm), as you'll need to remove the DVD and 2.5" bay.

    Changed up the fans on the heatsink to some 120x38 from 92x32. Bigger is better, right?
    The new fans are 2x the powwaah!

    Nah they are just Koolance 120x38 116cfm 39 db and San Ace 109R1212H1011 102cfm 39db, with the fan controller its a faint whir, but at max its pretty powerful. The good Deltas are around 250 cfm and 60 db, so these aren't on that level.
    I've thought about running ducting but not sure how it could be done without looking like total shit and the temps probably wouldn't change to make it worth it.

    Indeed, its the easiest installation ive done so far, tho i ought to think about where to hide the cables, its just a quick install for now and prolly later ill make it look cleaner.
    230mm? it can actually fit? i thought 200m was the max :O
    One issue i encountered was that the DVD drive is almost hitting the CPU Tower Cooler (YES I STILL USE SOME STINKIN OPTICAL DRIVE >.<)

    These cases are all over our place but they only sell Red, Gold/Yellow and White. No Black, but a rare seller manage to get his hands on a black one and grabbed it right away an di also got it cheaper than the others.

    Ive only installed it quick for now, will prolly rearange it later and warning, terrible quality night pics >.<
