I'm sure the King and his Horses could without breaking a sweat. 

 

Me on the other hand, we shall see :o

 

Honestly, breaking it down and putting it back together is just a matter of drilling out the rivets, then putting new rivets in to re-assemble.

 

I broke it down to give me more of a "blank canvas" so to speak. I kinda just get ideas and implement em as i go along. So when i ordered a bunch of acrylic panels, i decided to break it down to the bare components, so maybe i can re-assemble it with some creativity. Not saying that'll be the case, but that's the logic behind it =)

Looks like the FP connector is shielded; Im running off onboard and there is no static or buzzing.

Hey, does anyone here have a Cooler Master Glacer? If so can you get back to me about what you think about it. Pump noise, performance, etc. I sold off a lot of my custom loop stuff because it was just getting too cramped an I'm on the fence about getting one of these, but the reviews are really mixed about pump noise and I've found a bunch of reviews with problems about the wire harness inside the pump/block shorting out and burning up. Thank you,
post #7558 of 10493
I don't have the Glacer but I have the older brother Eisberg. The Eisberg has a more powerful pump, the same expand-ability, and is usually cheaper, plus the pump doubles as the reservoir so its not fixed onto the radiator like the Glacier is. But regardless of all that, the Eisberg pump is more powerful and runs at a higher decibels but its not that loud at all. If I put my head next to the case I can hear the pump whirling, but otherwise the sound from both graphics cards fans overcasts the pump. If its that loud, there is likely a problem and you'd want to consider a RMA, regardless of which AIO Cooler you purchase.

EDIT: Didn't even think about performance scale. I'm running a AMD AM3 3.4 Dual Core, that is unlocked to a Quad Core and then overclocked to 3.7GHz... idle kicks around at 27-28* depending on ambient temps (house stays about 70*s consistantly)... under load I see 36* while gaming, it spiked up to 45* once during a 22 hour run on Prime95 variable torture test.

All in all the Eisberg 240L get a A+ in my book, only thing better is a full custom loop. Glacer is just the newer model and would be about the same performance give or take a few *'s. Hope this helps.

Thx. I had looked at the Eisberg, but most of the reviews said it was really loud. If it equal to or lesser than the GPU then that would be fine. How is the mounting system with the Eisberg? I read it could use some work.

Mounting could leave a little more to be desired. For starters it does NOT come with a back plate, you have to use the OEM motherboard backplate, or do like me and buy a new one. I had an aftermarket cooler and used the backplate provided with it, so over the years, lost my original one.

Second, a little modification goes ALONG ways.
The AMD and Intel brackets fix onto the pump the same way. Overlapping locks and tension.



See in the picture, the hooks over lap and lock together. Well in actuality they don't work so well together. Being a solid metal bracket (well designed I must say) it is painted black, and the paint doesn't lay perfect, so to get them to sit right and snap together I broke out the dremel and shaved off the paint where they connect. Then to get them to slide onto the pump I had to shave the inside off the bracket where the pump fits... after the little modification I was able to get a nice cozy fit and everything worked as directed. Altho the manual is crap, I was able to figure it out using my brain and the pictures provided.

Still a great buy, just takes a little bit to be perfect.
