The Ref coolers aren't that bad if you set up a good fan profile. (I use MSI afterburner for this reason.)
Turns out that it was running @ 100% during install :laugh: It is quiet now, but I will have to see what it spools up to under load.

In other news, Windows 8 Modern/Metro is weird- but I almost like it. Think I will keep it on a secondary computer not my main PC.

Yeah, that's a little strange, never had mine do that. Although I haven't bothered with 8 yet other than in Virtual machines. I don't much care for it. Nor Server 2012's UI. But I do like some of the other new features.

I think I'll stick with Windows 7 for a while and do some more testing with 8 before I think about building a machine with it.

Well, I've drooled over a few rigs over here... lol

I guess I should show mine, and since a few of you guys are also showing your desks I'll start with that. :D

Not much to see since it's dark and I have the 200mm fan on the P190 side panel, so I couldn't crack it open for a clearer view. Also the cable management is not the best near the PCIE slots due to the RAID controller lol :p

:toast:
What model raid controller do you use?? :)

I see so many amazing rigs on here :D I've built a few for friends for Christmas, I hope to put them up shortly :D

Almost a year passed since this and this

I had to leave that beautiful project it in its very first stage due to work. Many things were missing: the power cable was not hooked up, element disposition was not deeply thought and nothing was permanently attached or well fixed. Fortunately i had time these few last days and i wanted to upgrade the beta version to 1.0 ... and it was kinda successful.

Had a time thinking about the hard drives position (now i'm running two) and its best spot for heat dissipation w/o compromising anything else. I also measured a lot of the internals to suit the original power button and led that i had along with a new Swiftech MCR-220XP and Micro-Res v2. Got some new 1/4" auto-fittings and 2x60mm fans that i placed under the rad to keep it higher than the deposit. To replace my old blue neons i got one Phobya LED Stripe (white color) and i paired it with a switch profiting one of the original holes of the case. To beautify the top part and hide the PSU as well as the CD and some cables i cutted the original G5 cpu covers and give it a lil bit of Mac Pro top-style.

Enough talking, let's go to the pictures :D

90 degrees are always more restrictives. They are generally used for two main reason:

First: When the access is limited so you have to install that 90 elbow.

Second: When you need to slow down the flow at a critical point in a water or any hydraulic system.

Well, my 7950's are back from RMA, arrived on my doorstep late last night. Got a chance to build my rig back up, but in the meantime, waiting for my VGAs to show back up, I had the opportunity to play with this G.Skill C11 2666 MHz ram, and boy, am I impressed! Currently running ram @ 2133 MHz, 11-11-11-28, with just 1.35 V!!!

I still have to test those for low-volt, so I am not sure. I do know that the Platinum sticks are not as flexible with subtimings as these sticks are. I can tweak subtimings on these and get way more performance out of these than the Corsair sticks.

I think I've found the limit of my IMC, so that made me look at low-volt. These G.Skill sticks use a different IC than the Platinum sticks, and I think the C11 2666 Platinums have the same IC as these G.Skill ones do.

Now play with 9-11-10-28 @ 1.5 V, 2133 MHz. You cannot find sticks with htose timings at 1.5 V..all the sticks with those timings use 1.65V. I'm really enjoying playing with these.


I'm also compiling info for a memory OC guide. I have a couple of boards to get done, this memory kit, and then I'll post the clocking guide.

Just a quick Question, do 90 degree fittings affect flow much?
This is the eternal question, theoretically they affect flow, though it all, many people treat them as "demons" based on urban myths mostly: "they're cutting it down to 50%" or others. The only way to get it tested it's to use a flow meter, cause the flow is affected for a lot of things, not just the elbows, also the loop distance and curves (or kinks), the loop fluid (density and viscosity) as well as the position of water elements as blocks or radiators. Once said that, of course 90 degree elbows are gonna affect flow but the amount of it it's gonna change from one loop to another. There are math and physic formulas that can help you with that but the easiest one is to measure it by yourself in your specific system.

In my personal one, i can see how fast the liquid is moving (using Mayhem Aurora fluid) and as far as i can see, the shortness of my circuit, the fact that no tube is kinked and a powerful pump is giving me almost the same speeds on every part of the loop w/o noticeable flow restrictions.

Also you can find 90 degree rotary elbows which are carrying a 45º inside as some Bitspower fittings.

90 degrees are always more restrictives. They are generally used for two main reason:

First: When the access is limited so you have to install that 90 elbow.

Second: When you need to slow down the flow at a critical point in a water or any hydraulic system.
Yeah, i'm using them in two critic and very limited points of my circuit: the return from radiator to reservoir which will cause a curve between these elements and will disturb the res-pump tube and could move the position of my radiator, also the pump-block connection, which i decided to make it straight to allow more air to pass through the MB and the plate of the GFX. It was just to maximize the free space to maintain the circuit in case any emergency happens and also some fresh inners.

Just a quick Question, do 90 degree fittings affect flow much?
Think of the flow like a wood pencil. The middle part and the outer part.

The center of the flow is theorically almost the same and the outside flow too when in a straight line.
When it comes to curves even the smallest, the outer flow change direction producing a chain reaction by making impact with the central flow.
The more the speed of the external flow the more swirls it may create when making impact with the tubes and fittings affecting at the same time even more the straight center flow.

Physics is so wide that it needs calculation to know if these swirls accentuate or decrease the flow speed.

Clear enough ?

Haven't posted pics of my PC since the GTX 680 came along, so I thought it was time :)

Can't wait for next january/february to post pictures of my new computer project im planning for my cuirrent rig. It involves Switch 810 and carbon fiber.

I still have to test those for low-volt, so I am not sure. I do know that the Platinum sticks are not as flexible with subtimings as these sticks are. I can tweak subtimings on these and get way more performance out of these than the Corsair sticks.

I think I've found the limit of my IMC, so that made me look at low-volt. These G.Skill sticks use a different IC than the Platinum sticks, and I think the C11 2666 Platinums have the same IC as these G.Skill ones do.

Now play with 9-11-10-28 @ 1.5 V, 2133 MHz. You cannot find sticks with htose timings at 1.5 V..all the sticks with those timings use 1.65V. I'm really enjoying playing with these.


I'm also compiling info for a memory OC guide. I have a couple of boards to get done, this memory kit, and then I'll post the clocking guide.
If only the tridents looked as good as the dominator platinums.
