LD Cooling V10 - Build Log - Not cold enough.

post #1 of 122

Well I didn't want to post this on here as its no where near the league of thread or mod quality you are all accustomed to. But decided to post it up anyway!

19th Nov

Well my little package came in weighing at 38.9kg... im guessing this cant live on my 5mm glass desk!

Will have to get some comparison pictures, this is the biggest case ive ever seen in person, makes the 800D look like a baby. :Paranoid:


My new 30" Yamakasi monitor.

Owait... this isnt a monitor!

Monolith like case.

The business side of things.

Waiting on a 480 rad to get this build under way! Will most likely be scrapping the red sleeves for black... too much red zomg.


Enjoy.

Hey guys nothing much to report, i've just been dusting/cleaning down the case and having a general poke around.

There's not much info to be found anywhere on these damn cases!

My RX480 got sent to me via registered post so.................. might get it before christmas ffs!

Can't live with out my PC for long, damn nerds1

Anyways enough chit chat, Moar Pix™ - i've resized the pictures smaller the pixels were critting my eyes.


This thing comes from a far far away land :Paranoid:

Not the best finish i've ever seen, but I guess it isn't as big of an issue for something getting to -30 deg. (productbombing...)

Found a scythe 3000rpm 38mm fan on the compressor rad, thankgod its pwm!

Enough fan pins to have a 480 in push/pull config, fans would have to be out of the case otherwise there would be fan/rad all up in the mobo.

Next two pics I just wanted to show how much space there is for cable routing.. its a monster.

I love how LD cooling has mated the two compartment panels, a cool touch.

A size comparison to a RX360 rad. I've found myself calling the case, Monolith. Also has a perdy temperature read-out on blue LCD screen.

Enough room for 2x 480 rads in the bottom compartment if I get bored of having a fridge in the bottom.

HDD/VGA cooling, well sort of..

That's all from me for tonight, going to hide it away from the cat. Just in-CASE (ohhh yeah) he touches it and gets exponentially smarter. Damn monolith.

Will have to get the tweezers out and straighten some fins, then give them a quick touch over with black spray paint.

So after 20min's of manual labour sand papering, I decided to take a picture before I get primer/painting.. This is with P360 grit wet/dry, ive got P800 which should get it flatter/more shiney. There are also a few little black fleks still there but wanted opinions before I bother further sanding or priming.

Well I got on my hands and knees (wereru apartment workbench!!!) and got sanding again with the P800 grit. I think this is as far as ill go! I havn't sanded back all sides as I wont see them with it installed in the case with fans attached. Just looked at the pic the end tank seemed to have left some sandpaper powder for this picture, damnit!. Slack I know!!

Well not a hell of a lot has changed, the clear rust guard coat is well and truly dry, also went over the fins with a quick layer of flat black.
I got a-talkin with some awesome guy who gave me a good deal on a 3960X, so i've been busy selling my 3930k and FSP PSU as I got the 1500w Enermax with the case.

Started inspecting the Slovenian way of HDD mounting which can only be described as, Slovenian.

Its interesting and weird, a little quirky. I also decided to spray paint the red inside yellow to copy Kosti.

Build is also stalled as I bought the RX480 under the premise that it came with all bolts... none of which were sent. So waiting on gammods to send me XSPC mounting bolts amongst other bits and pieces.

Re-sprayed fins

Finished & clear coated RX480

Slovenian HDD mounting with old colour scheme (flash makes the red look fail..)

Will be stripping the old case down Sunday, will be prepping the motherboard for -30, installing EK VRM waterblock, mounting the pump and looking at tube routing. Busy busy..

The old case filled to the brim with crap! Bye bye tiny case! Ew.

Seeing as the theme has recently become red, black & silver (due to rad sanding) i'll be incorporating the colours throughout the build. Stole PCI brackets from my Corsair 500R, got some nice silver screws from my collection.

Going to be paying a lot more attention to detail with this build then previous one.

I've been thinking about going silver 90 & 45 degree adapters with black compression fittings on top to continue tying in the colour scheme.. still toying with the idea. Will have to decide today regardless :tongue:

Well I've been busy as hell, eraser insulating has taken me ages to say the least. Given its my first time I'm trying my best based on limited 24/7 phase insulation guides on the net.

From what I've read using eraser between the socket is a good idea for 24/7 phase use so after stripping the old build I got to it. Started getting into it thinking, hey this is fun and created a thick barrier, dummy fitted the socket backplate and top to find out my socket eraser layer was way way too thick. The top screws to mount the socket holder are extremely unforgiving clearance wise.. caused some nerd rage but eventually got there.

I've insulated as much as possible while bearing in mind I still need access to release the socket holder to install the 3960X when it gets here, so will finish eraser insulating the top of the socket then.

Apologies for night time pictures on mobile, I blame my girlfriend and maybe the mobile.


This is when I was more just having fun throwing wads of eraser at the socket as opposed to making a nice tight thin layer. This was prior to discovering I was being a derp.

Socket holder finally on

EK mosfet block on

More eraser 39.jpg

This is where I stopped, will finish up socket once CPU gets here.

Dummy fitting of ram/mosfet/comp fittings clearance.

Going to have lunch then start drilling mount holes for the water pump.


EDIT - I've just realised the phase mounting screw will be in the way of the left fitting on the mosfet block.. ***
