Well there is a reason that the H80 and H100 was the top of my list. They are truely awesome but the H60 will be fine with your processor. You're Good.

Yeay! My Demciflex filters and Sickleflows have arrived. Got some work tonight.

Alright! Now that I have the Armatus put back together and rebooted, I have some reports.

1) The temperature sensors were slightly detached, so I have that working again.
2) Installed the H60, I think correctly... The idle temperature on the CPU is 35/36C. System temperatures seem to have been dramatically reduced thumb.gif
3) "Flipped the switch" on my 6950 and I now have 1536 shaders!
4) Tweaked my wiring and cleaned it up a little bit. I'm still more utilitarian with the interior, but I think there will come a point where I do go for something aesthetically pleasing.


Here are some pics of my updates. Feedback is always appreciated smile.gif

Has anyone had any experience with this stuff?

I've used it on some scale models over the years.

EL Wire, EL Sheet and EL Ribbon are all basically the same, though the colors are not consistent across the three types due to manufacturing processes. EL is GREAT for its minimal profile and bendability. The Ribbon and Sheet aren't much thicker than paper, the Wire is mere millimeters!

Fact is, nothing else gives off light like this stuff does.

The downfall is their initial brightness, which can be equivalent or less than LEDs; the inverters can be fidgety, give off an audible high-pitch buzz when operating and die very easily; and EL has a 'half-life'.

That is, after dozens to hundreds of hours of operation, the brightness will, essentially, drop to about half of what it was when new, then half again and half and so on until it's just a weak glimmer of what it once was.I'm pretty sure it bottoms out at some point.

Like CCFL, the inverter pumps the voltage into the 'hundreds of' range and can be quite the shock if accidentally exposed. As to brightness, put a ccfl next to any EL product and the EL may as well not even be on.

You can pump more voltage into EL and get it very freaking bright, but that kills the lifespan. Running at, or below required voltage extends the lifespan, but at the cost of the brightness.

If you run your box 24/7, the inverter ain't gonna last long,weeks or months. And while the EL itself runs utterly cool, the inverter puts off a good amount of heat and needs cooling, such as being right in front of a case fan.

This is the best info I could find with a 10 minute search.
http://science.howstuffworks.com/electroluminescent-wire1.htm

But to get back to the good side, EL is really sweet, does what no other form of lighting can. Like all tools, it's good for some things and not good for others. It all depends on the usage.

Hope that helps.

Here's some vids I did 3 years and a month ago. I'm sure the tech has advanced some in that time. But the lifespan issue has not been solved that I've heard of.

This just shows off EL Wire


This diorama incorporates EL Wire, Ribbon and Sheet, CCFL and LEDs so the comparative brightness is very evident.

I like everything but the fans, I hope Noctua will some day give in and offer a different color because they do make a great fan.
