[Build Log] Project Apollyon - SG05 cpu+gpu loop - Page 5

post #41 of 72
Thread Starter 
FINALLY done the 24-pin. Didn't do a great job either, I didn't really stretch the sleeving much (some more than others) and the shrink isn't aligned but overall I'm happy with it. I've ordered more sleeving to do the rest of the cables but for now I've worked on the cable management. I have 3 black cables running through the middle of the case (usb 3.0 connector and HD audio), they're just too short to route them any other way. The rest are hidden away as best I can do, and I'm certain it will look 100 times better once I sleeve it all.
You may also notice the noctua under the PSU. I couldn't find a good, slim 80mm fan so I bought a 92mm noctua and mounted it on the outside of the casing. It seems to be exhausting around about the same amount of air out the back as the stock one did and is much, much quieter.











I also connected the pump back up to 12v by accident but I'm not going to worry about it for now since all the cables are under the radiator and the only way to get to them is if I take out the graphics card so I can take out the power supply so I can lift the radiator out to reach them.

Next thing I'll be doing (while I wait for the sleeving) is testing temps with the NF-F12s in push/pull, push, pull and comparing them to the NF-P12s (again in push/pull, push and pull). Then I'll run the same tests again with the pump connected up to 7v. I'm hoping the NF-P12s and pump @ 7v will still give me good temps because the P12s are still considerably quieter and the pump at 7v is A LOT quieter.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the situation with the pump and res. I've decided to just have them sit there for now, it's not like it causes any issue except that it could look better, but the with the panel on you won't see anything anyway. I may make an L-bracket later on, but not for now.

Good job on sleeving that ATX24. Would you mind commenting on your experience sleeving in my thread in the sleeving subforum? http://www.overclock.net/t/1307713/bad-modular-design-silverstone-st45sf-g

I'm still stuck, mulling over how I'm going to do mine. Sort of writer's block tongue.gif

looks good... once its installed the flipped cables (from mobo to psu) aren't a big deal.

what kind of sleeving did you use? MDPC?

That's what I thought (with the flipped cables). Yes it is MDPC, vanilla sands, titanium grey and white

What is the best way to test temperatures? And should I run both cpu and gpu under load at the same time or separate?

Well what I decided to do with my loop was to run gpu only for about 5 mins, then let it cool for 5, then cpu only then cool, then I ran both together afterwards. I would suggest though when running both together that you monitor your temps closely and that you start the cpu test first. Hope this helps thumb.gif (to see how I did mine you can check my Core 1000 build log below)

Thanks I'll do something similar, sexy build btw, I like how clean it is

Edit: I've been running prime95 and burn in test and I've noticed that after a while the air coming through the radiator is really hot. I'm not surprised but the issue is that all that hot air is being used to cool the PSU. The noctua (on the psu) seems to give out slightly more air than the stock fan but it is once again very hot air. I'm worried about damaging the PSU, is there any sort of high temperature safety on it? What could happen if it runs too hot?
The only thing I could do to improve it is to flip the PSU but then I would have the noctua on top of the case and I really don't want that. Apart from that the only other thing I could do is add a 80mm fan in the side panel but it would probably do more harm than good because it will interfere with airflow and block some of the other fan anyway.
Anyone got any other ideas? I think it will be OK but I'd rather be safe than sorry. It was the same with the stock fan but I guess its more noticeable because more air is coming out the back

What about flipping the fans on your radiator so they're pushing the hot air out of the case, rather than in... I've never done water cooling, but seems like doing that would certainly be the way to go, rather than just pushing a bunch of hot air into your case.

^^ probably worth a shot to see how different temps are w/that setup. not ideal as you won't be filtering intake air (if you are now), but rad air tends to come out pretty hot, esp with only a 120 cooling your cpu+gpu loop.

I'll give that a shot. What if I also flip the fan on the psu so that it is pulling cool air in from the back and into the case and then have the fan on the rad pulling that air out the front. Or is that a bad idea? Do I want better airflow or do I want to try and get each fan to be getting it's own cool air?
I've been testing the temp differences between the F12 and P12 in different configurations but I have a bit of a problem. I've been testing it running prime95 and MSI Kombustor Burn-In. The problem is that sometimes both the gpu and cpu run under full load, but a lot of the time the cpu is under full load but the gpu is only working 30-60%. I tried changing priority in task manager and ran kombustor in real time (also tried high) and prime95 to low but that didn't do anything. Is there something wrong or is there a way to make both run under full load at the same time?

I managed to do a few tests, I'll post them all when I'm done but I'll just say that I ran the P12 at 1300rpm in pull and my cpu and gpu was running in the high 70s after 40min under load, My entire case was really hot, I took the cover off and it was like a toaster in there and I noticed the tubing went really squishy. It was nice to see it cooled down pretty quick tho.
