Looking absolutely great Mike, I'd love to have a system like that!
How much you want for it ?
Damn fine looking stuff !
Yeah there are some nice setups over there. A lot more people seem to post their rigs and projects. I wish I had the time/money to set aside to do some myself, but School takes a little too much of both. Maybe when I get my tax returns this year, I'll go for it too.
Thanks for the comments guys... much appreciated...
Knuspar - how much are you offering?
weston - Yeah, i may post this project over at XS sometime myself... get alot of useful info and ideas over there.
hI MiKe,are both cards in the same loop ? and what kind of temps are you gettin'.Don't know if anyone asked that b4 hehe BTW awesome work m8.
Whats the name of that controller on top of the CD-RW/DVD-RW? I want to get one cause that looks sick.
Edit: Nevermind. I read a bit and saw that it's the Mcubed T-balancer.
Actually I think that is his Matrix Orbital SurrealX but I could be wrong? I was thinking the same thing as you though, looks quite nice indeed!
Probably is. Just searched the Mcubed T-balancer and its a fan controller.
You are one crazy mother ****er to do all of this to your pc... but i freaking love it man. That's some of the sickest case modifications i've ever seen. Well done man, well done. I praise that work of art
FCCC that looks dang good!
great job. love the rig. i can never look at my tj07 the same way. =/
mike man u did one kick ass job with that thing
Hey guys - been away on business the last few days, so not had chance to check guru. Thanks for all the comments...
Catroqui - Yes, im running two loops (hense the two different water colours ). One for my GPU's one for the CPU + NB. The GPU temps idle at about 33 degrees, and load around 38-42 degrees.
surrealX - My front display is a Matrix Orbital MX6, which is a great little display and will run all sorts of info, from system/hardware stuff, right through to RSS feeds etc. I am also using an Mcubed Tbalancer to control all my fans and keep the pc at a reasonable volume.
Quick update to the log...
after much messing around with 680i problems, I switched to a single GTX and intel chipset for a while, and then upgraded to a GX2 when it came out. This is now on water!
The block is an EKFC9800GX2 acetal full cover block. Heres a closer look outside the system:
And another little gadget I bought a few months ago... Those of you that have seen previous builds will remember my little matrix orbital MX610. Well, they bought out a newer version, the Typhoon and its even more flexible. Not done much with it yet, but heres a few screens ive done so far:
Thats just filth
LCD looks pretty damn good, what kinda loads temps you see at that speed?
Damn, now that is one LCD HUD I must own.
Thanks for the comments guys.
aircool - Load temps on Prime/Orthos are around 50-55 degrees @ 4ghz, in games it doesnt go above 45 degrees.
Cheers for the picture MIke. I have orderd the same block from scan as you suggested, one thing though is how hard is it to fit. I've done my chipset and cpu a good few times but never a gpu.
How are the instructions and components?
Does it all go together pretty easy?
I have purchased the barbs but i use screw on fixings rather than clamps, just feels safer to me.
The block is easy enough to fit, just make sure u tighten the screws evenly to ensure even pressure.
Really the hardest part was removing the stock cooling... its like trying to solve a rubix cube! LOL! And the screws are on seriously tight, and u need an excesively small screwdriver to undo them! There are pretty reasonable instructions included tho...
