It'd be possible, as I'm working on a site that does mechanical parts, work with steel and aluminium. It's another aspect I have to clarify soon, but I'm in course right now until next week, and was thinking about bench table a few days ago after I bought a x79 UD7.

as im thinking testbenches are really good decision

That is an amazing build provided the fact the bench is a watercooling monster. Great decision man thumb.gif

Update:

Alright guys, well today I added some blue dye to the loop, looks nice ( i'm expecting plastisizer to build up in the loops ) It appears I didn't clean the loop out as well as I thought I had, as green dye from the last set up has gave the loop a slight green hue... not sure how I feel about that, but may add more dye to try to make the blue a bit blue'er

and added my fan kill switch i'm naming "Stealth Mode" Basically, with the switch on, all the fans are spinning at their normal speed. when the switch is off, only the two GT fans are going, which if you never have seen and heard a Gentle Typhoon, they are one of the best fans out there as far as performance and speed. Also, all the LED's are shut off as well, its pretty neat.


With the system on, my temps idle around 32'c which is where I expected. with the system in "stealth mode" Idle temp is roughly the same, and Prime 95 temps are basically the same as well, hovering around the 60'c area ( Slight OC at 4.5ghz for now )

Obviously during gaming, the temp difference will be more drastic with the the stealth mode on, but will still keep the system plenty cool.


I have a giant bubble in the water loop that I cant seem to shake out, so I may have to take the res/pump out to try to get the bubble out, but since its a test bench, it wont be that hard tongue.gif

and ofc, pics.

A new thing I want to see if I can do to this, is mount the rez/pump onto the top frame somehow, since the radiator is bolted to it, you either have to have really long tubes or something to be able to slide the bottom tray out. Or possibly see if I can move the 5.5" bracket to the back, and just ziptie my DVD drive to the bottom frame, and just unscrew the rez/pump when I need to move things around. a seperate pump and rez and you could probably mount them to the top of the bench

or... jsut go and make one mounting plate for that smile.gif

Well, I ended up unmounting the cooling system, and bled out alot of air bubbles, and took the anti kink coils off, because they are sqeezing the tubing so much it warps the tubing a bit, and is typically a pain to work with. And I accidently didn't seat the CPU block right, and it was running at about 90°c for about 10 mins before I realised it... hope I didn't damage it.

The system would have shutdown if the temp were too high no ? Don't think (and hope for you) it'd be damaged in this case.

i thought the same thing as well... I don't know exactly what happened, and I know the reading was correct, after I saw the temp, I shut it down and tightened up the waterblock, and it was pretty hot.

I let it sit for a while, re-did the thermal paste and re-set the waterblock, and booted up and temps seemed normal ( ideling around 33°c, its normally 30-31, but it was a bit warm in the room )

I then set the settings in real temp ( my temp monitor ) to auto-shutdown if the CPU temps hit above 75°.

I'm not sure what could have caused the safety cut off to not activate unless it didn't work properly or something?

Note: BIOS settings are completely stock, except for the CPU fan monitor disabled ( I don't think that should have anything to do with the thermal cutoff? ) running at around 1.3v and it self turbo boost to 4.5.

Is there any way to check or test for heat damage?

after a let everything settle a bit, i ran Prime95 to make sure everything was now cooling properly, and it didn't crash or anything for the 5 mins I let it run, and CPU temps were under 60°c, so I hope everything is okay? I hope it does not damage my OC ability, as I would still like to try for a 5.0ghz in the future ( 4.8 is my highest to date )

It seems the shutdown failsafe activates at 98°c, so I was very near the shut down temp.

its ok i think smile.gif if you turned it off as soon as you saw theese high temps than its fine smile.gif
