I dont know what it is but I really like your set up Nukemaster. Its so tight fitting in there but looks right. Does the radiator for your graphic card get enough air. Is it blowing out or in. Must be a little hard to work on but I like it. thumb.gif And what kind of temps does the cpu get. With those three fans I would guess it stays cool.Phenomenal cosmic power itty bitty living space. biggrin.gif

The video card rad pushes air out of the case because I did not want extra heat inside. I figured that if the case could pull in air from the bottom fan, it should get enough from the bottom for this(I have tape on the back of the case so the air can not run in a circle, but heat rises so it may not be needed).

Since removing the shim and filing the stock vrm/ram plate the temperatures are lower so air in may not have been too bad, but I would still need a filter on the out side. This way I get to use the stock floor filter on the case.

It is quite interesting to install or remove the card. This takes some getting used to since I used to just swap in and out cards for testing(excuse to build a "test" system smile.gif ).

The cpu fan is actually just a single fan and an old fan with the motor cut out of it on top and the NF P14(to keep some air flow over the VRM area without the noise of a smaller fan) on the bottom does not add more than a few degrees at most to the cooling(my cpu is not clocked that high so even a single fan was enough for it). In my testing my H80i only ran an average of 3 degrees hotter with a single fan(the test was with NF P12s).

My media center is more crammed than this, but I almost never have to open it.

I apluad yu nuke..i went from 6yrs ago mini micro atx case..to matx mid.to proper mid(
Cm scout) to bigger mid(enforcer) to realy huge full xl atx case..(x predator)
i dont think ill ever do a personal rig in a smaller form factor..i just love the bigger spave to work with..

+rep to you sir..mini titan bomb with a big boot to kick but..
post #5624 of 8626
How are the seidons 120v? Maybe I'll get two of them... it's cheaper tongue.gif

edit
also, for use with a non-blower fan, should I go with a open shroud?

edit 2
and how can I glue heatsinks to my vrms and/or memory chips? I need something easy/accessible biggrin.gif

I went in reverse. Big cases down. mATX seems best for me(But if I needed SLI/Crossfire, I would jump back up for sure.), while I still do have an ITX system that serves its use very well.

The 120v should work. You will just have to do some work to make it install on the video card(some users here have posted R290 cards with the 120M fitting with NO mods. the spacing was perfect). The cooler mas to either make contact with the gpu core directly or with a shim to make up any height difference. Square type coolers tend to get installed on a 45 degree angle to make it more easy to attach. You are going to have to decide what works best for you.

Your card type does not matter too much, but the non blower ones tend to have a heatsink on the VRMs so a fan is all that is needed.

Heatsinks can be attached with thermal adhesive, but it is kind of permanent, you you better be 100% sure before doing that. Some have 2 way heat conducting tape(not as good, but can be removed with some gentle work).

Oh OK I see now thks. I take it that you filed the plate for better heat transfer to the sinks? And I'm missing a couple slot plates on the back so I did the same thing and used tape over them for the same reason did'nt want the hot air coming back in. Probably not needed but oh well. I'm still pretty new with computers and like to have extra space for my ghetto ideas. So if it doesnt work I can change it back easy. But someday I'd like to build a rig like yours,small and quite. Maybe when theycome out with the pascual and nv link. So many cool things in this hobbie I'd like to do but for time and money cant get to them. Speaking of which gotta go and make some. Thks.

Oh, no. My problem is not the fitting of the block. I'll be making a custom bracket for that. What I wanted to know is the seidon's cooling capacity. But I think I'm going H60. The seidon is out of stock here where I live. I wish I could go h80i, but it's too thick sadsmiley.gif

About the blower thing, I asked because I'm also going to make a custom shroud to my card tongue.gif
So I wanted to know if making a closed one would be too much of a problem and rise my temps.

Anyway, thanks for the help!
post #5628 of 8626
Only a small portion of the cards total heat comes from the regulators so a shroud is not an issue as long as you have some air flow over the vrm section of the card(heatsinks are recommended if you have to remove any built in heatsink for them clearly.).

Sooo....silly question. Anyone had a "The Mod" that's crashed/burned, died in glorious redeeming fire? Because mine did....mad.gif Locked up the comp, smelled something....as it rebooted, I looked inside and saw sparks, flame and smoke come out of where the pump meets the card. I haven't had a chance to tear it apart to see if the card (GTX580) is salvageable or not, but I'm hoping it was the pump going to Pump Heaven.
post #5630 of 8626
So far I have not heard of anyone killing a card with this.

I sure hope it was just the pump. I did not think anything in the pump could put on such a show.

If you have a leak maybe something bad would happen.
