Custom chiller based loop - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Oh man! I was going to do a log on one of these things. I got a JBJ Arctica 1/10HP waterchiller and I was going to hook it up to my ghetto bucket for *****s and giggles.

On your idle @ 2.3 question, did you turn off Turbo, Speedstepping, etc? Could be that CPU-Z is weirding out. I'm using the latest 1.6 on a i7-860 and it sometimes shows that I'm oc'ing at 4ghz+ when my CPU is running at like 2% tongue.gif

In the end I decided to go with IC Diamond 24-Carat Thermal Compound
I read that it needs some time to do its magic. smile.gif
Thanks!

Yep story of my life, always late to the party smile.gif Oh well like me its something to keep in mind when you next remove your block. According to the graph on that site it runs 2-3 degrees cooler tha the 1c.

After I finally managed to build my final setup and was satisfied with the overclock and temps, my Asus P6T died. frown.gif
I took it as a sign and decided to go for an Intel i7 3930K. I`m not decided yet which motherboard to choose, because the new built will be a 64GB Ram system, overclocking target 4.5 GHZ for the CPU (no memory overclocking). All this for a 24/7 4.5 GHz stable build.
I put the i7 970 on eBay and next Saturday, after the auction is finished I`m going to purchase the motherboard.

I`ve seen that most of the people are going for Rampage IV Extreme. I suppose it`s because of higher overclocking potential.
Right now I`m tempted to go for P9X79 WS because of the 24/7 stable work target I have and because of the warranty. With a Workstation motherboard, if your motherboard dies, you can RMA your motherboard straight to Asus and get it replaced.

I tried to find some overclocking threads for ] P9X79 WS, but couldn`t find any.
Does anyone have some info to share about this board?

Nicely done. I was given a cold water fountain that I was going to gut and turn into a chiller but ended up selling it. Dont forget to insulate the CPU for condensation.

Thanks. smile.gif I`m really happy with it.
I`m not going to push it to far just to avoid these kind of headaches. I managed to change the chiller to work between 10-25 Celsius degrees, so this way it only works 2 hours a day.
