Just be careful with the glow stick fluid. Even though it's the same stuff used in UV, it could still be a different viscosity, and composition than pre-mixed fluids. If I were you, I'd spend a couple extra bucks and purchase actual PC fluid with antimicrobials and anticorrosives already mixed in, namely Primochill. If you're up for UV Green, I've had great results with Swiftech HydrX. DON'T use Feser One crap. That stuff will clog up your blocks in no time. A good coolant like Primochill doesn't need to be changed all too often, so it's not like you're throwing money away.
Good luck with your future endeavors

Ahh didnt think about the viscosity, good point. Thanks for the support!

I never like the rice grain method myself. I always have consistent temps by spreading it. remember the idea is to transfer heat from the cpu to the waterblock not to block it with excessive amounts of paste. I like it much better than your original post:thumb:

hmm, that seems more logical. i wonder where the cores are physically located on the chip.

Thanks for the info, would never have thought of that. Will have to look into this as-well for solutions.

Just to clarify:
The M-Audio Fast Track Pro is wired to the Yamaha amp:

The speakers are testing monitors i built:

9hnmnn.jpg

As far as quality goes, its 24bit, 96khz sampling, and pretty low noise @ high amp gain. I did have some interference problems before due to a bad ground, but that really wasn't the interface's fault. Its extremely useful as a headphone amp; can power 64 ohm cans without issue.

Not super familiar with the focusrite 8i6, but this specs look pretty similar, minus the channel mixer feature.

I have heard the rockit 5's in person a few times; wasn't super impressed with their frequency response. Tends to roll off really early below 100hz. Probably a good match when paired with their sub.

Sanded down the LEDs on the DIY LED fan; definitely widened the output. Have other UV LED project in the works aswell.

Good build man. I really dig the reservoir.
post #36 of 100
well after looking at you loop i see one issue off the bat your only getting water in about half the block as its turned horizontal not vertical so its only filling the lower half of the block or if it is filling the block its not moving most of the water threw. id bet if you turn it vertical with the outlet uptop it might perform slightly better.

just my 2-cents worth.

After this build i wont have the money for really good monitors..mad.gif so something is better than nothing..my current computer will get turned into a DAW.. Maybe i will keep looking for something else then the krk 5.. How about the 6..???have you heard those?

Hey what keyboard is under your desk?? midi? Im looking for a flat response dont want much bass.. just use to mix

I have heard the same theory and it seems valid may get a few C out of it

The 6 are essentially the same, slightly lower roll off. Flat response would be nice, i think "guitar center" has these monitors in their mixing rooms. Grab a DB meter and sweep a tone generator to test for linearity thumb.gif

Thats an EMU XBOARD

Good thought, however, gravity's effects on fluid flow is negligible at 1" of depth in comparison to the pressure of the system.

doh.gif untrue this is why you bleed your system once the air is out the block will be used to its fullest regardless of which way it is mounted

to the op did you tilt your case back and forth after you filled it to make sure all air bubbles have escaped?
