You do realize there are two problems with these measurements, right?

1: You're reading losses of the AC PSU

Basically, neither of those readings mean anything unless you know the exact efficiency of that AC PSU at any given load and even then it's still a guess.

they have enough meaning that I know this: the total power draw will be less than what those numbers are. I know they are not perfect, but it gives me a ballpark idea.

Sweet! biggrin.gif

I will follow & comment periodically.
I must say, I am really impressed by how much a power supply change made the power draw drop. It's quite amazing to say the least.

yea, I was a bit surprised, makes me put more store in the efficiency ratings of power supplies.

yea, I am REALLY relieved about that. and the score is pretty impressive for a computer that uses less than half the power that one of my three graphics cards uses. biggrin.gif

what? two more boxes?

316775_10150329507506363_600936362_8623884_751146993_n.jpg

these boxes where not as exciting, but I got another 2GB of ram, some standoffs for when I get the case designed and made, and an HDMI to DVI cable:

312291_10150329507556363_600936362_8623885_149760954_n.jpg

installed the new ram:

315522_10150329507581363_600936362_8623886_1703798488_n.jpg

and now it is time for WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

320095_10150329507616363_600936362_8623887_535708778_n.jpg

the Rasa kit comes with nicer fittings than I thought:

300665_10150329507676363_600936362_8623889_526172694_n.jpg

I also did not realize it came with a PSU jumper! and clamps, thermal paste, and a silver coil!

305723_10150329507751363_600936362_8623890_352259315_n.jpg

an assortment of brackets:

298814_10150329507831363_600936362_8623891_707532669_n.jpg

get ready to swim little boat computer!

320845_10150329507856363_600936362_8623892_419066298_n.jpg

cleaned up the thermal paste:

297965_10150329507886363_600936362_8623893_1902225619_n.jpg

back plate ready:

306301_10150329507956363_600936362_8623896_32489511_n.jpg

I am really liking XSPC's stuff, it seems really well designed. they put good thought into their products.

back plate on:

more organized hardware:

291720_10150329508041363_600936362_8623899_596192734_n.jpg

I feel like these next two pics together truly show how nice the finish is on this block:

308351_10150329508111363_600936362_8623901_1073380870_n.jpg

298912_10150329508066363_600936362_8623900_1905626194_n.jpg

yes, the camera focused on the sprinkler on my wall reflected in the block. impressive shine biggrin.gif

little tube of goo:

312975_10150329508176363_600936362_8623903_72705891_n.jpg

this is the softest Thermal paste I have ever used:

315689_10150329508246363_600936362_8623904_1142322675_n.jpg

block in place:

293449_10150329508291363_600936362_8623905_1428963925_n.jpg

hardware started:

298038_10150329508336363_600936362_8623906_1331521116_n.jpg

and tightened down, but un-tensioned:

302099_10150329508401363_600936362_8623907_937074258_n.jpg

and around here I got thirsty, haha

this stuff is delicious:

298287_10150329508441363_600936362_8623908_413650923_n.jpg

and back to work, tensioned the block:

310134_10150329508466363_600936362_8623909_859131578_n.jpg

and with that, time to prep the rad:

312054_10150329508516363_600936362_8623911_457568156_n.jpg

gonna use the brackets as feet temporarily:

319224_10150329508546363_600936362_8623912_1684785022_n.jpg

feet on and ready to rinse out the rad:

317763_10150329508561363_600936362_8623913_435716588_n.jpg

and this my friends is why we rinse out radiators:

294519_10150329508606363_600936362_8623914_1185168653_n.jpg

pump's turn:

301317_10150329508641363_600936362_8623915_1906429960_n.jpg

fittings on rad and pump:

309680_10150329508686363_600936362_8623916_1893550890_n.jpg

ready to plumb it up:

299625_10150329508706363_600936362_8623917_1415228040_n.jpg

I wanted to cut up the tubing as little as possible since I am not 100% sure how it will be mounted on the boat. so I cut two short sections I know I will be able to re-use and left the rest uncut:

298390_10150329508771363_600936362_8623919_245142031_n.jpg

everything connected:

and here is the rest of this update: biggrin.gif

put on the clamps:

321684_10150329509126363_600936362_8623926_1737864713_n.jpg

ready to fill!

317069_10150329509146363_600936362_8623927_220125761_n.jpg

put the coil in before filling:

walmart water:

298095_10150329509486363_600936362_8623935_1658482948_n.jpg

got my handy funnel out:

312657_10150329509516363_600936362_8623936_1527223599_n.jpg

317589_10150329509561363_600936362_8623938_698011429_n.jpg

giving it it's life water biggrin.gif

302269_10150329509606363_600936362_8623939_1292668827_n.jpg

296585_10150329509651363_600936362_8623940_1554383678_n.jpg

plugged in the PSU with it disconnected from the computer:

312911_10150329509696363_600936362_8623941_430151996_n.jpg

and jumped it to fill the loop:

309640_10150329509731363_600936362_8623942_17343149_n.jpg

and quickly found this:

302594_10150329509776363_600936362_8623943_1914336851_n.jpg

the O-ring was squished out the side and allowed it to leak.

I then drained the loop and disassembled all the tubing so I could fix this.

I decided to use the XSPC fittings on the water block for now, I like them better:

316402_10150329509876363_600936362_8623945_1013742394_n.jpg

I reconnected all the tubing and got ready to refill:

294163_10150329509956363_600936362_8623947_1509770020_n.jpg

and here is is all full:

313635_10150329509986363_600936362_8623948_1788086650_n.jpg

no leaks this time that I can see:

314355_10150329510026363_600936362_8623950_280308935_n.jpg

298226_10150329510066363_600936362_8623952_354533969_n.jpg

295828_10150329510101363_600936362_8623953_990866491_n.jpg

317788_10150329510171363_600936362_8623954_855606359_n.jpg

I am going to leave it leak testing for 24 hours without turning the the computer on, particularly since the mobo got water all over it from that leak. Hopefully tomorrow I will have some numbers and screenshots. I am eager to see the air-processor delta for a water cooled 35w processor. biggrin.gif
