[solved] Air cooling for dual xeon? (goes water now) - Page 2

post #11 of 15
sigh... things like this i don't quite understand. ask yourself this. how much $ did those 32gigs of registered ECC ram cost you? how much is that pair of xeons cost you, how much did that tyan board cost you? you're dealing with server grade equipment yet you are not going cool it down properly? while we are at it, what kind of power supply did you buy for this machine? did you at least get one of the best consumer grade power supply like a corsair AX? are you really going to risk your server grade machine because you wanted to save $200?

up to you buddy. all i can say is you really should take into consideration how much the board/chip/memory cost you to build this machine when considering what kind of protection you should provide it. personally, i'd get server grade redundant power supplies or at least a corsair AX or a high end seasonic. get a UPS so you don't risk your work on the stability of the electrical grid. and proper cooling will definitely reduce the stress of thermal cycles on the equipment. i would strongly recommend you not risk such expensive equipment on lack of power or cooling.

pretty much what the guy said above, if you have that stuff, cool it properly or sell it and get a regular computer. if not, then do it right, don't do it half way

^True.

There is a reason why servers are so damn noisy, and that is why.

You either give it a lot of cooling, or you give up.
Don't do things halfway and get screwed over when something decides to overheat or fail.

Thread Starter 
its been a week, i promise this thread to update my progress and i am now smile.gif

guys, i rep you all,.. thx to everybody that has commented on this thread, giving me suggestions or even doubt me about my dualxeon built,.. yes,.. do it, or not do it,... half way or any other way biggrin.gif,.. i'm still gonna build my dream system one way or the other... i was eyeballing this 800D since it came out,.. and i do render most of my time, so dual cpu is my priority, even though i dont have any proper equipments yet to support smile.gif..

i was using old cm stacker with very minimal airflow due to very limited fund,.. but overclock.net is about pursuit of performance, i do whatever it takes to reach my performance, dont care how long it will take thumb.gif,.. so, been struggling with temp as high as 90c since i purchased this dual xeon 1 year ago, now, with new "dreamy" 800D, i tell you,.. a m a z i n g !!!thumb.gif you guys suggested me to use watercooling, i did,.. i have to spend almost all our family "holiday fund" but its well worth... thx again guys, to all of you here thumb.gif, ....but my pursuit is far from finish smile.gif

temps now 45c max with prime95 smallfft (both cpu) with closed case compare to 90c before even with side panel opened thumb.gif, cant even believe myself that i let it run 24/7 with 24-48 hrs rendering redface.gif for a year

and yes.. H60s fit on tyan S7002 but slightly without room to screw redface.gif

I would buy some fan filters and keep the rear fan as intake to give the registered ECC's some love. those ram heat up something fierce. maybe even switch that fan out to some high speed fans like a high speed GT or even delta. i'm glad you finally got the CPU's under control, but you aren't completely out of the woods because the RAM is still cooking as it is before. also from the pic above, you are using a PULL fan on the H60's instead of push fans. if you can only use 1 fan, always use push instead of pull fan for better cooling.

ideally you'll want to get something like this

450

over the rams to make sure they stay cool, but for now, the rear fan will have to do till you get some more budget.
