NoName, CM storm trooper mod [Finished] version 2.0 - Page 7

post #61 of 98
nice build, one question. I have the same fans and still have doubt how to install them, you have them all as exhausting, how are your thoughts about this? I mean for the visuals it looks nice to have the coloured rings on the inside, but for example your bottom rad would be better taking air in.

not are of them are exhausting

this is the fan layout


with all the mods i lost the functionality of dust filters so to prevent the fans from pulling in too much dust most are exhausting and only the three front fans are pulling air in

Too bad you've got that ASRock instead of a Gigabyte Sniper to match that green/black look

that sniper would match my build however, i wouldn't say that the Asrock doesn't match. it is pretty neutral as far as color scheme goes, almost all black, and the Asrock has more features than the sniper. when i bought my components (8/12) i had actually considered that board, but the Asrock got me with the features and the neutrality of the bored wasn't going to lock me in on a color scheme. i also didn't like the sniper because the form factor was too large for the few features that it has, and i am not a skull kind of guy, i think they are outdated and over played...trying too hard to be cool.

so guys i changed the loop a little and rerouted the PCIe connectors




when i did the changes in the loop i swapped out the hose and i was surprised as to what the coolant did to it. i wouldn't say it is plasticized(r) and i don't think it is a stain. almost like if i had left the hose in the sun. it also left like a chalk like substance near fittings.




and i'm not sure what this is but it looked and felt like wet lint, it was only in the CPU block, the GPU block was clean.

so guys its been a while. some upgrades coming soon. it seems that i have contaminated meyhems pastel somehow somewhere. it seems to be growing some brown stuff in the tubing. i would have caught it sooner if i wasn't away all summer and saw it every other other weekend. so the loop will need redoing and i am toying with the idea of pipe. as for system upgrades i need some suggestions, i am going to be running 5760x1080 resolution and obviously a GTX 480 would not handle that i am trying to decide what i should get.

option:
single GTX titan

option:
two way SLI 3gb GTX 780
only reason why i don't jump on this immediately is because i worry that the 3gb wont do as good as the 4gb on the 770 or the 6 gb on the titan

option:
two way SLI 4gb GTX 770

option:
two way SLI GTX TITAN
this sound outrages and would be complete over kill.
