Drop In Waterblock for the Ivy/Sandy Bridge without the Tec Headaches - Page 15

post #141 of 235
When I building a new rig, one of these will be on my list. smile.gif

Thx for explaining that Elloquin. The whole point of this block is to get cooling performance without the risk of condensation. If you want extreme TEC you have to go sub ambient anyway. My CPU socket is ALWAYS cooler than the Die temps when benching so it can safely be said that you're going to have condensation.

Another note, the TEC Controller is virtually the same (they can just be changed to handle more current between 12 and 24v) what is not the same is the Voltage supplied. The 12V rail on your ATX PSU is not going to supply 24V unless you were to put it through a transformer and the controller doesn't do that. It merely turns your TEC on and off at the voltage provided. The 12V controller is designed to connect using your PCI 6Pin plug. The 24V is meant for someone who has an Aux Powersupply such as a meanwell.

If you haven't researched Peltiers, you probably wanna use water/phase to get you where you want to be. In the end the water cooling gear for the tec will cost you the same, maybe more as it would to water cool your CPU. If you got the powersupply and controller and a dual TEC Block, it will probably cost the same as phase (starting from having only air cooling) and if you stick with the single TEC block and 12V controller, it will probably save you $100 - $200 instead of going phase (again, starting from having no watercooling gear)

If you go for a 24V dual TEC setup and you run that at 100% all the time your room will get so warm you can't stand it. Currently this is what I'm running. An AMD Phenom II x6 at 4.4GHz at 1.44V with a dual TEC setup. If I were to benchmark for 30 mins my room goes up about 5 - 10 degrees C and only hot air is coming out the radiator.
Whitey!

benching so it's not possble to run 5.5ghz+ 24/7 stable because of condensation issues both with phase and pelts? i might need to start getting used to the idea of 5.2ghz max if im lucky with the chip i get.... i'm sure when ivy bridge comes out with it's low wattage and small die these pelts are gonna start to shine....

It's called, people have lives off the Internet. He'll respond whenever he gets to you.
post #146 of 235
yup... guess i'm too stuck on the forums till i finally get this build started. damn ivy bridge... making me wait too long... so wanna pull the triger on 2700k or 3930k and get this show on the road.... keep dreaming about my rig at night.... oh well.

Im sure it has been mentioned but i dont feel like looking through all of the pages.
How much rad would be recomended for a waterblock like this?

ATM i've got a total of 720mm (6*120) for a Tri-Fire 6970 + 2600k.

Also an estimate on how much you would gain over a normal block, given a water temp @ around 40c.

Thanks.
