[Build Log] Project "Overkill" - Quad GeForce Titan's - Page 6

post #51 of 782
Thread Starter 
Managed to get quite a bit of work done today on the front panel. Didnt quite finish it there is still 3 more fans to add and cabling to shorten and sleeve.



1) Bitspower front grill is in place, screws have been put in place and anti-vibration rubber sleeve has been added.



2) Fans are added



3) Fans are tested to ensure the rubber sleeves do not make contact with the fans



4) 7mm spacers are added to improve airflow through the rad.



5) Radiator is now attached and this is the finalised front view. The silver washers will be replaced with black ones early next week (ordered them)



6) Close up of the radguard/fan



7) the radiator attached at the back.

Things still to do
- Replace silver washers with black ones
- Add 3 fans to the radiator on the other side
- Shorten, combine and sleeve 6 fan cables to single fan connecter.

How do you like those Gelid fans? I've always wanted to try them out, but they never seem to make them in my color preference; they're always blue or green.

Although 4 680 is better than 2 690, I like the fact that you could save space in the rig.

But since you're water cooled, that's not a problem thumb.gif

Good job so far. Digging this

I'm pretty impressed with the Gelid fans so far, they are silent as advertised, push a good amount of air and use very little power.

In my previous build I used some Enermax fans with Enermax's Twister Bearing technology and I was not impressed with them. They were much louder than the quoted 19dba and didn't push anywhere near the amount air they quoted (69cfm). I very much doubt I'll be buying a fan made by Enermax again.

The core thing that made me decide on these fans is their static air pressure. These fans have 1.93mmAq where my previous fans only had 1.073mmAq, which is a great for pushing air through radiators.

Stats for the Gelid fans are:
25dba @ 1500rpm
5 year warranty
0.22a which is just under 3watts per fan
Air Flow (CFM) 64.3

I will see how loud it gets as I add more and more of them to the system, but early signs are looking good for a very quiet system smile.gif

subbed for a great looking build. Do the Gelid fans feel strong or do they feel weak? Been looking at them for a bit and decide if i want those or 2 more cougars to do p/p on my h100

Good to know, thanks a lot for the info.

I'm impressed by a 5 year warranty, now if they only made them in black/white, black/red, white/red- something along those lines I'd buy them up in a heartbeat.
I normally use yates, as I can get them for like 3$ a pop. Just had one of the yates bearings give up though, so I'm looking at buying some better fans. I do like the look of the enermax fans, but I have also hear they are not up snuff with their advertised specs.

Keep up the good work on the build! smile.gif

The radiator I'm using is 8cm thick and the fins are quite dense. I can still feel the air from the fans 40cm away from the radiator (used a tape measure).

So I would say they are pretty strong fans with good static pressure.

Edit:

Tubing

I've been reading a lot of negative reports on Primochill LRT tubing and plasticizer residule within the tubing (and in some extreme cases caught in the microfin of blocks and in pumps)

I currently have 3metre's of Primochill UV Blue LRT tubing I ordered for this build and the supplier has quoted a batch date on the box of 05/06/2012 (American date format)

So I've setup 500mm of distilled water in a beacon and added 1 drop of Pt Nuke and a 99.9% silver kill coil.

I then added 2 short 5cm length of Primochill UV Blue LRT Tubing and sealed the container so it is air tight.

I'm now going to leave it for a week or so while we wait on the asrock custom waterblocks to be build. (can't tube or finish the build without the block!). It will be sitting in direct sunlight so it should heat up the fluid a bit (I don't have the facilities to heat it up myself with a Bunsen burner or something similar - also not game enough to try the stove).

If it turns out that the test tubing is coated in plasticizer or there is any sort of sediment in the water I'll be considering some other options to replace it.

Option 1) Ording some cllear Durelene tubing and use a combination of Mayhem dyes to create UV Blue with distilled water and Mayhem Biocide.
Option 2) Ordering some samples of masterkleer, dangerden or feser UV blue tubing and deciding on a replacement based on their strengths and weaknesses and using PTnuke/kill coil.

Edit #2
Work kept me pretty busy today so I only managed to mount the second set of fans (with anti-noise and vibration gaskets) and strip the wires of all the stock black sleeving and glue (gelid had clued every wire together so I had to separate them one by one.

If i get some time later this evening I will start sleeving / shortening / soldering.

All sleeving throughout the build for the fans will be following this example.

Build look amazing. Subbed.

Which monitors are you going to be connecting this beast to?

I haven't seen someone sleeve individual fan wires in awhile. Should be interesting. What size sleeve is that?
