no longer lurking, hope I'm in the right place.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

I am the "Multimedia Specialist" for a large video, light and sound rental & staging company based in the Midwest. We do large, mostly corporate and National Association, live events all over the US.

We've been in business 53 years and I've been here for 20 of those.

I mostly create content for our clients live events (national conferences, sales and marketing meetings, awards shows, etc.) And when I'm not doing that, I oversee our computer rental department.

I'm putting together a new rig for content creation based around Adobe CS6 (video editing in Premiere , After Effects animations, transcoding to various CODECs requested by clients, etc.)

This, unfortunately, will be a 0% gaming rig with zero overclocking.

So, why am I here?

Quiet cooling for high end components.

I intend to water cool this new rig to keep a pair of E5-2687W Xeons and a pair of GTX580s at decent temps while being as SILENT as possible.

In my searching, I don't think I can air cool these two CPUs and two GPUs on an Z9PE-D8 WS motherboard as quietly as I can with water.

But that's why I'm here.

To pick your brains. poke.gif

I believe this is still the right place to be, even though I'm not overclocking.

Anyway, here I am.

Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Welcome !

This is still a great place to be for just about anything.

We have Serious Watercooling Junkies here, and many like ,myself, hold onto Air Cooling as a Fine Art.

its a Nice rig you there for what you wish to do with it, unfortunately I have very little experience in your particular world of Computer Usage.

Luckily there are many people here who Do know alot about that as well, so your in luck, there is always someone on OCN, who has a proper answer for you.

Just dont always take the first answer thumb.gif wait for other to confirm and of course, In google we Trust.

Dojnt forget to Fill in your Rig Specs (Like mine shows unde rmy signature)
by Clicking Here "Rig Builder"

Enjoy your stay thumb.gif

Watercooling lets you do some pretty neat stuff. You could even run the tubes through the wall and have the pump and radiator (with fans) in your coworkers office!

I've noticed my pumps are pretty quiet if I turn them down a notch, and you can get the quiet fans to put on the radiator. Just remember that air can cause a lot of noise- make sure you completely get all the bubbles out of the loop, and then have the reservoir (if you use one) completely full. The air is what allows that "fountain" shloshing noise to be heard.

Anyways, nice to have you with us! Be sure to check out the watercooling section for better advice then mine! lol

Welcome. I've found many a good bit of info on content creation and Adobe CS6 here, and even meted out a but of advice myself here and there. OCN is a great community for content creators, well as sys-admins, and other tech professionals. Even if you don't OC you can still find info on dealing with obscure things like funky BIOS errors, weird voltage issues on power supplies, or, as you mentioned, just keeping things quiet. The marketplace is also a wonderful resource.
