sum mor Yumcha' to finish the 'Karbon' build,
I like the shiny radiator and fan grille.
What's with the big acrylic block between the mobo and the rad? Just an interface block to mount the pump and link all the water lines to the rad?
Thanks, they r stainless steel, wanted a 'carbon grey' look.
The water channel is the RES ++ interface as u say. Got some more fittings + fan cable ext., give the whole thing a 'go over' now I knw it wrks
if u hv a look at the painfully long vid above u will see it drain and fill, they r made by Bykski for all sorts of cases. Once u have seen them - I cant think of a better res/case/interface combo..?
Derp, I didn't even think of it as a res as I'm so used to seeing bay-mount or other rectangular/tubular style reservoirs.
Cool idea, especially for open/flat/upright freestanding/wallmounted mod builds. Nice looking blocks too.
Thanks for the link, I've been out of WC for a few years but keen to get back into it when I have the time... will definitely check out the Bykski stuff. Cheers man.
Improved loop o7
and the new pump, old 1 was Bykski 15w, this is Barrow 17w + display & maunal fuction buttons, works Vwell for set up temps, then forget
some metal pipes!
Thx mate, I have some of ur Sexy matt black tubing to add after this little flush and the opportunity for 'Hudson to run a bypass..' from the top two stoppers off to God knows where, but if its just feeding off and feeding in I see no prob's with any amount of 'second loop'...?
Yeah mate, the extra loop volume helps very marginally with heat capacity, just be careful of your flow rates dropping too far. I don't know much about your Barrow pump!
oh my dear, I am talking of adding a complete extra loop - D5, res, TT Pacific, ++ One I could just QD or Tap in out... and hide, somewhere
but yer you may be quite right about marginal hey,
anyway fyi, during our heat wave the other day was gaming @ 62-72c, water @ 42c felt like I could have made a cuppa tea!
*(disclaimer: this is @ stock volts due ARSUS, once again feeding me the pineapple, within months of buying their ubber product so that their software no longer functions. Hats of dough wackers o7)
I'll be buying a Gigabyte, or AsRock or MSI nextime
Ah I see what you're getting at, separate loops is pretty cool and can fill out a big rig nicely if you ha e a lot of extra space. Kinda helps when your case is missing three sides
Most gear's rated to 60C so you've still got some headroom, but I'm uncomfortable with my water at 40C too. Doesn't happen often in little Tassie thankfully. In reality you did well to keep it as low as you did!
Geez yer, I have never had 40c+ water. Its a bit of a mind trip for me - "I am using 42c water to 'cool' a CPU, GPU & VRM's" - maybe I am a simple guy, but that sounds ridiculous - Anyhoo, that was without the Air-con and honestly the most beneficial thing I could do is actually just add a bathroom extraction fan in that corner of my office.Thanks for heads up on rated temps, never even thought of it, I just thought 'lets blast the F out of it and see what it can take!'
How would rate that pump?
Is it quiet?
I'd go a D5 anyday, but this suited, is plenty powerful enough @17w am running now @10.4w for 4150 rpm/11lt pm. Heaps of flow, no noise. At full it does vibrate & sucks a golf ball through a garden hose.
I liked the ability to auto or manual on the fly + visual readouts is nice.
There has been some 'floaties' swishing in the CPU block I'm Sure! ... I can see 'em when the pump starts. Been looking at it for over a month... eh
*NO I didnt use the rad flush! but the coffee was GR8!
the direct result of (LMFAO) applying 8yr old dye 'paste' from a previous loop... didn't seem to bother temps much at the time but 'summers here!' and it been niggling at me like a pencil out of place at stationary village.
my dirty pics,
now to erase that filth from ur mind!
and some machine lines only a deep core driller could love =>
