I thought it was a pain to put on LOL. How did you mod yours?
Sorry for such a huge picture. I think it was the first picture I took with my Dslr.. lol.. Man.. I need to get back to my log.. I got a i7 860 that is screaming water.. lol
Yes, I stitched that myself.
Replaced my Gigabyte X58 UD4P with the X 58 Extreme:
The Fenrir does a pretty good job keeping the i7 cool:
I am waiting for a new backplate for the Apogee GTZ. Then I will see about figuring out (never used splitters before) how to water cool the nb with the supplied 3/8" nozzles as I use 1/2".
This board requires a higher VCore to run stable. My ASUS and EVGA boards run at 1.26 to 1.28.
Looks good Hammer! I gotta spend the weekend seeing which board I want to keep.. lol
Gotta love the hot swap bay of the Obsidian 800d. Ready to go with no adapters, just 300MB/s read/writes
Some fun numbers:
Compared to two 320GB WD AAks in Raid0:
And just for fun, one single Nova 128GB:
Oh, may have an opportunity to test these on a Sata 3 board in the up coming weeks. Anyone with ideas on how to show the benifits of Sata 3 over Sata 2(aside from mech vs ssd) please let me know.
Here...top this mess.
definitely looks sexier. The cooler is pretty huge man!
You cut it?
Got my HTPC up and running.
I gotta work on propping up that PSU better.
Tight fit, looks great though!
Are you able to fit an aftermarket air cooler in that erocker?
Looks good! Can you show us pic(s) under the hood?
This might make it a close 2nd!
I recognize that! I work for a electric utility...
Anyone else seen this? This is the one I have been waiting for... http://tv.hexus.net/show/2010/03/CeBIT_2010_It_s_not_size_that_matters_with_the_Silverstone_SG07
Plans are to use a i5 670 @ 4.8GHz and a 5870 for a 24/7/gaming rig. Here it is after a short game session of FEAR. (Using a Boreas atm for cooling)
That case looks oddly familiar. It's a pretty good little case isn't it?
Mlee I hate you and your ssds! I would love you again if you sent me said ssds free of charge
What are temps like in HTPC box erocker?
i knew it! you use a selfbuilt chiller, right?
And there are more piles like that in this room...
Add to that the fact I'll be moving house soon
If you want to put anything over 88cm tall in it, you'll have to get out the saw. I'm thinking of possibly try to put a Corsair H50 in it, but this Athlon II x4 runs very cool and this Opty heatpipe cooler works quite nicely! Perhaps if you can find a tower cooler that is thin enough to fit in between the PSU and the HDD bay it could work, but then you need room for a fan.
Thanks - it looks like more room than I imagined
It is a Coolit Boreas...
if you want to get rid of those piles... try this cream:
is that available without case? i thought it was only obtainable as combo?
You can get it both ways and in different configurations also. I have two...one in a Silverstone case and the other bare for the bench rig.
Well, you would with most cases. A three foot tall heatsink would be rather cumbersome.
