What are you going to do with the dead 580? I'm all up for donations wink.gifthumb.gifI'll pay shipping

Try booting with it as a secondary card. Maybe it's still stable and can serve a purpose for folding or something, if not, you've got an expensive paperweight or wall art on your hands biggrin.gif It's strange that a small cut into the substrate caused artifacts.

Now that you mention it, I don't think I've checked all display outputs.
Once I've confirmed I cannot use it for gaming purposes, the card is yours if you pay for shipping smile.gif

Nice log.

 

What case is that?

 

The guy who sold you the 109P's thought he was buying a 140x25mm fan? Sanyo Denki does not currently offer such.

 

Even at $55US shipped, those are expensive fans. They look sweet, and they would be perfect on a 140mm rad. I'll be interested in hearing about the undervolted performance.

The case is a Corsair 700D. I initially wanted the 800D but at $50, that deal was too good to pass up biggrin.gif
Plus the only noticeable difference is the swappable HDD tray...

The guy who sold the fans was indeed looking for 140x25mm fans, at least that's what he said in the auction: he mentioned some issues with the thickness of the fans being the reason for selling them.
I guess he didn't know Sanyo Denki doesn't offer such models (and I didn't either until now ph34r-smiley.gif)

I have yet to receive my 140mm radiator but once I do, I'll run some tests for sure thumb.gif

I'm assuming you went m-ATX so you would have room for WC? I am stingy about m-ATX boards in ATX cases, lol.

That's one of the reasons yes, even though I'll be using a dual bay reservoir and won't have many cards or other stuff plugged in.

I didn't want a motherboard with several bazillion slots that would go unused. Seeing all those slots unplugged, I hate that laughingsmiley.gif
I'd prefer having just the required features that I know I would use and build with it for the next few years or so.

All in all, I really like the look of an mATX board inside such a big case.
It helps a lot with maintenance as well. My last rig was inside a P182 case with an ATX motherboard.
Great case overall but it was still painful doing some maintenance on it, particularly around the PSU chamber.
I also had to remove the top HDD tray when I got my 4870X2 as it wouldn't fit otherwise.

Since then I just decided to get a roomy case to avoid such issues smile.gif

Today I went shopping for some accessories that would let me plug my radiator to the faucet so I can clean it a little bit.

I found out that Japan doesn't seem to carry the regular stuff most people are talking about on forums, such as fittings with G1/4" threads or 1/2" & 3/4 tubing.

I had to settle for slightly different accessories but in the end, it won't be a problem as it should only be for parts cleaning

1/2"ID 3/4"OD tubing equals to roughly 13/19mm but all stores I went to only had 15/20mm
Here's some cheap tubing I got with a specialized plug
452

Here's the faucet plug
452

And here's how they fit together
452

Radiator plugged and ready. I had to use one of the compression fitting meant for the loop to plug the tube into the radiator as they didn't have anything close to fittings with a G1/4" thread.
452

I set the water temperature to about 50 degrees (Celcius) and let it run for about 10 mins in one direction. Once done, I unplug with water still inside, shake the radiator a little bit and drain.
And then, same for the other direction.
452

I thought the insides would be clean after that but when I peeked bigeyedsmiley.png
Sorry for the bad picture (phone camera) - it definitely looked dirty...I wonder if that's the same for all radiators ?
452
452

So I took cotton swabs and checked. Blurry picture but you can clearly see it wasn't clean at all, even after running hot water for 20 mins and shaking it...
Looks like I'll have to use vinegar !
I still flushed the radiator after that with some purified water (couldn't find any distilled water) and will repeat the process again later with vinegar.
452

I wonder, what do you guys have found when flushing your radiators ? Are cotton swabs supposed to be that dirty if you check the insides ?
