Nuke I think the square bracket would have worked its the same size pump just slight better internals and top.

Nat a seldom will fit with either zippies or one of my brackets.

Hey guys this pic shows what i want to do with my hard drives..i already checked my hd cage..4 rivets and its outa there..
Can a ac cause a pc fan to become wet..like from the colder air it draws in..i clean out the setup yesterday and noticed my front 200mm had wet residue on the fan housing
post #5484 of 8626
I do not think the AC should cause that but if the air is very cold and you have higher humidity in the room it may cause slight condensation(but i[ doubt it).

I think you have a better chance of a fan with too much oil having some come from the motor and hit the blades(seen it with both CM BladeMaster and Corsair SP120L fans.).

it was only the front intake..200mm cm megaflow red led....not oily..not sticky..straight up wet...i used the vacuum cleaners blow function..kirby masjien.it sucks in fresh air directly from the surrounding air..pushes it out the other side thru pipe...so not cold..not hot.
yeah my room gets a bit humid..ac cools it down to a point then its useless..i switch it off at night though...
how safe is it to run 3 fans from 1 mobo fan header..i want to remove my rads fans from the fancontroller and hook all 3 to the mobos ch1 fan header..
post #5486 of 8626
Most board headers are good upto about 1 amp(12 watts).

If they are PWM fans(and the header is a proper working pwm header), you can use an adapter to run as many as you want(ok, most stop at about 5).

The PWM signal just gives the fan a duty cycle and the power would come from the power supplies 12 volt rail.

PWM is much more easy on the board since it does not go actual voltage regulation.

K..so 2*120 + 1&92 4pin pwm fans are pushing it a bit..yeah i wanto to get a pwm fan hub..like the swiftech ones..hook that up to fancontroller and a mobo header..best of both worlds..full control and rpm monitiring/temps..
how safe is it to remove the plastic gpu fan header and stick a fan on there directly..every one says its fine ..some say its not..i did some searching myself..found out that although the dual fans on custom gpu coolers are high power rpm fans..they draw half the amount of power a normal standard case fan does..
gpu fans: 12v @ .35 - . 55 amps
case fans :12v @ .50 - .70+ amps.

thanks..for input..

i just thaught of a wacky idea..what if you take two 80-92mm case fans..break out the fan motor/blades..then use them as hoilusings/shrouds for something like twinfrozr ii or newer fans..

The MOD using an EVGA GTX 670 4GB & Corsair H90

I decided to have a project weekend and gave "The Mod" a go on my 3-way SLI GTX 670 4GB rig. I was having a great deal of trouble cooling the second card due to three blocking two's air intake. I tried removing the backplates, maxing out fans, and even underclocking the cards just to keep them cool. To no avail, two continued to heat up quickly and remained hot long after the others had already cooled down. Strapping a water block to it was a great solution to this problem by removing the need for clearance altogether.

Pre-Mod



Removing the shroud was quick and painless. To help me with this project, I employed two world-renowned GPU cooling professionals to oversee the project.


Looking good!


Now to zip-tie this baby onto the core. I'm surprised this isn't called "The McGuiver Mod"


Clipping the ties was a snap with a pair of scissors. Not the cleanest cuts, but precision wasn't a huge factor.


Profile shot! The unit's head wasn't nearly as thick as I anticipated. I'm considering using a dremel on the shroud to run the hoses out of the front instead.


The fan/rad combo was HUGE!


The jerry-rigged rig is online! Cable management went out the window; I couldn't wait to see what this thing could do!


In my haste, I neglected to throw some thermal paste into my cart whenever I purchased the H90. I impatiently opted to go through with the mod at the behest of my two Anatidae experts. Temps using the pre-applied paste push the GPU to 102°C in a matter of moments after starting any demanding application forcing all three cards to decrease clock speeds. However, it does rapidly cool the card back to sub-40°C temperatures in a matter of moments after the load is removed. Ah well rolleyes.gif. Thermal paste is arriving on Tuesday. I'll update my results when it gets in.

Hmm, it should not be getting that hot with the pre-applied paste, it's actually very good.  With my 'the mod' and a h105 using the stock TIM I never saw temps over 37C on a GTX 780 Lightning @ 1.30V.

 

I would try tightening up the zip ties you used to get better contact.

Without the backplate, I was nervous about ratcheting them down too tight. I'll cut the old ones and give it another go Tuesday. Thanks!
