SantaClaw's Workshop, my new rig.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So... I had a PSU disaster, that wrecked my AMD rig, took out 7 Hdd''s and one ssd...


Although my motherboard, memory, graphics and cpu is fine, I am building a complete new system.

This will consist of:

Cpu - Intel® Core i7-3970X Extreme, 6-Core, 3.5GHz, 15MB - Watercooled
Ram 2x - Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz 32GB Kit w/4x8GB XMS3 DHX, CL10-10-10-27- for a total of 64gb of ram
Motherboard - ASUS P9X79 PRO, Socket-2011 ATX, X79, 8xDDR3, 4xPCIe(3.0)x16, CFX&SLI, SATA 6G

3x 4TB Western Digital® RE Enterprise hard drives
1x Western digital green edition 2TB drive
1x Western digital 1.5TB drive
1x Corsair force GT 240GB ssd
1x Corsair force 3 - 120GB ssd

Videocard, Watercooled AMD 6990 HD

Psu: Watercooled Koolance PSU-1000ATX-12N

9 fan Aqua computer 1080 radiator, in the next room, with two eheim 1048 pumps in a row, for redundancy, a 2 liter water tank, waterfiler near the tank, no noise from this pc..

Case - Changeing to a Fractal Design Define XL R2 Titanium


Should give me a real platform to build on ?

Got a source on that ?

I gather the same thing, although, I can't really find any reviews on it though, it's not the same as the 1300w version, which is supposed to be really bad, the 1000w version is allegedly a lot better.

This is the closest thing I've found, but he hasn't really started with the review itself.

http://alpoethemad.com/2013/02/koolance-liquid-cooled-power-supply-review/


Also I have been using the PSU-1000ATX-12N for about a week now, and it's got stable voltage values, runs fairly quiet, (internal pump they don't tell you about makes a noise) and overall seems really good. At least on the surface.

800$ ? 100$ ?


The cpu and ram + motherboard is at 2200$ and the psu is at 499$ + shipping.

I am getting a new case, the Fractal Design Define XL R2 Titanium









My current case demands that the psu is mounted upside down, and that's no good with the koolance watercooled psu as it can only be fittet right way up.


I like big cases, I love room, although I am really only looking for BIG cases with HUGE amounts of room, looks aren't that important to me, but the market for big REALLY big cases is down at the moment.

EDIT: Well, since you already own it, then nvm. I would have gotten an AX1200i, since Corsair will replace fried parts if something goes wrong.

I am building a dead silent pc, no fans in the case, except for 1 x 120mm just to get some circulation... Everything else water cooled. inside a sound insulated case.

I didn't want a 1200w noisemaker...

Although I didn't know the koolance psu had a pump in it... It made a few noises the first two days I had it running, but now it's gone silent.


That is the plan anyway, but since the case has got sound proofing, and only 1 fan, I will keep an eye on the temps, if they go up, there are two other fans that come with the case, + I have some 180mm and 140mm fans laying around..

I have sound insulated watercoolers for the harddrives, but I don't think they will fit the case, as they take up a full 5.25" each, and I would need 4 of them.

I can tell you right now that the Wd 4 TB RE disks are NOT particularly cool... they are hovering around 40c in the open, in 20c room temp, and I am not even writing to them.
