[Build Log] NZXT Switch 810: Water Cooling Redo - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Thread Starter 
My Gelid Wing 14s came in and replaced the stock fans, some other things I ordered just in case also came in today as well, I got some spacers and rotary adapters just in case, as well as in line temperature sensor.

Currently my replacement power supply is going to arrive on Tuesday and my back ordered Micro Res. is still on back order (was estimated to ship yesterday, but oh well *shrug*). So I am using an external power supply meant for an external DVD drive powering the pump for leak testing... made a temporary res out of tubing and some extra fittings for the purpose of leak testing until the Swiftech one arrives.

Pretty sure I got all of the air bubbles out, going to let it leak test for a couple days until my other parts arrive.

Gelids on the top

The 90 degree fittings seem to be working just fine, I am using a spacer on the second one to get a snug it.

I added rotary adapters to make the removal of the rad easier in the future

700

So basically I am just using the fan bracket on the hard drive cages and using that to mount the fans

Then you slide it into place, I only have the top screws mounted on the top as the other holes do not line up :/ , but I added a sheet of plastic at the bottom which aids in support as well as securing it with velcro to the bottom and also added some to the hard drive cage. I am also using the plastic to mount the res and the pump.

Wow OCZ sent me a brand new PSU, totally unexpected... and no coil noise hooray!

Currently I am still waiting for my Micro Res. to arrive, currently using a T-Line with a length of tubing acting as a temporary res.. Did some initial stress testing with Furmark and my GPU temperature topped off at 77 Degrees.

Pictures to come biggrin.gif

I've read some reviews saying you can fit a radiator in the top..... you'd need a super thin one if so.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been busy with papers :/. But I am currently running my system with a temporary "reservoir" using a t-splitter and an extra length of tubing. I have just got the shipping notice for my Swiftech MCRES Micro, so it should be here in a few days and I will upload some final shots and stats.

Currently I am running my graphics cards at a core clock of 800/1600 with a memory clock of 1800(3600) with idle temperatures at 36 Degrees Celsius with load temperatures at 77 Degrees Celsius witrh Furmark.

CPU idle temperature: 38 Degrees Celsius
CPU Load (Prime 95): 46 Degrees Celsius

Water idle temperature: 31 Degrees Celsius
Water load temperature (GPU): 60 Degrees Celsius

When I get everything all together I'll run the load tests again.

What's with the lack of updates you may ask? Well the system is finished, did some benchmarks, but overall I am not really happy with the layout of tubing that I chose. To add to that, the clear fesser tubing I've chosen has also discolored after a 3 months of usage, the water is still clear in the res and there isn't any residue that I can see and I've already read the thread on the discussion so it's probably just the tubing.

Basically I've been toying with different loop configurations as well as considering changing to copper piping instead of tubing. Also there really isn't anything wrong with the RAM and the fans I have right now, but they don't really match the overall color scheme, so I am planning on switching sometime....

Right now I am just casually seeing if any of my friends would be interested in water cooling so I can pawn off my parts to them... so if I can make magic happen I can justify doing a change up since I won't have those fittings, fans and ram laying around doing nothing. So I don't exactly know when I'll be updating my current build for aesthetic reasons, but when I do hopefully I'll be sure to post pictures biggrin.gif

Update

I ordered some new fittings from Aquatuning to go with the copper piping I got off of ebay and got a lot of help from B Negative's Pipe bending thread.

I've worked out a new loop layout and I've ordered some extra fittings to make draining the loop in the future a lot easier, I also have some corsair SP120's performance editions coming in the mail as well (I already have the 120-140mm adapters).

Hopefully everything will work out nicely, and maybe I'll eventually find someone who wants to swap ram with me.

Here is a poorly drawn rough layout of what I am planning:

My fans came in today! biggrin.gif

Four two packs of SP120 Performance Editions


Three of the Four packs out of the box


The fan cable is a bit short.


At the max RPM they're a bit loud but not as loud as I was expecting them to be, with the included low noise adapter they go down to 1800RPM and they're pretty quiet (just as quiet as my Gelid 14s at 1000RPM)

Fittings from Aquatuning should be in tomorrow, as for the copper tubing..... no idea.
