Central Heating II

I've decided to do a rebuild. While I'm pretty happy with the performance of Central Heating (obv), it runs far too hot (nearly 70C on load in a room at 18C) struggles to get stability on overclocking and is impossible to carry up 4 floors of stone spiral steps at uni (just moving in at the start of term is a nightmare).

Hence, the case is changing and financial circumstances have allowed me to indulge in a bit of watercooling.

The Cosmos looks great...I'll do some close up photos when I've finished leak testing.

But today, I went around a few places in the north to get the watercooling bits. (Scan isn't in Bolton, its actually 9 miles north...so I drove 125 miles buying odd bits).

Still, at the minute, I just need a case before I start a little watercooling loop.

The loop will be just cooling CPU and not northbridge...it leaks....after a good lake formed in the case.

I'm using:

-TFC Xchanger 240 rad with two shrouds and 2200rpm yates on a fan controller

-DDC Ultra with XSPC top

-4m tygon 1/2ID and wormdrives

-XSPC bay res (black)

-Delta V3 cpu block

-Asus Fusion Northbridge block (assuming it doesn't leak...it does, so this is off)

-Primochill steel blue UV

Just leaktesting now...

Finished (almost)

Today has been more about getting the setup into the case and wired in than doing things tidily. Also the PSU wires won't reach round the back of the motherboard, so there are quite a few on show

The northbridge fittings or the block itself leaked, so that had to be taken out...unfortunately, it was below certain other bits on the loop, so it went everyhwere while I took it out.

Anyway, it passed its 12hr leak test, but sprung a little leak when I moved it into its position on the desk, but that was solved by tightening up a barb and worm drive, which must have got knocked in assembly.

I also took the side fan out of the case, because it got in the way of the wiring to the graphics chips, and I reckon that the 88cfm fans in the roof can cope, with the xigmatek fan in the back and the coolermaster fan in the front.

Big thank you to TTL for doing such a great job with the case, beautiful powder coat, that even withstood a (accidental) screwdriver gouge. I also got rid of most of the neon, so I've got three lazer leds and two uv sticks in there.

Just for a side note, its very difficult to mount a wide radiator (e.g. black ice extreme, tfc xchanger) in the top of a cosmos if you have a heatsink on the top of your mobo...

Pics to follow shortly...

Lots of pics:



























About the temperatures...after an hour of prime95, at 3.6 ghz, it could only muster 38,38,37,35C coretemp, 47,48,47,45C realtemp. (Which one to trust?)

Either which way, the idle is in the high twenties, low thirties (core/real) so I'm pretty happy.

And admire the powdercoat...

The black internals to a Cosmos S really just do finish the case off

Where do you live? I want to post you some cable ties :haha:

Its alright, the wires are a lot tidier now, I'll post pics when I can be bothered taking the case off the side of the desk again.

Just before I do reembed the pics, is 800*600 OK?
