Well I am super happy with the Velocitor build so far. I have 4 200mm fans coming from Antec...planning to make a push pull rad box for ICE...but that's another thread LOL.

But I thought I would go ahead and fix the broken fan in V and maybe make a shroud from a part of the side panel of a V600 Lian Li I am hacking to bits...it might make the case look bad to build up the protruberance any further...but a push pull on that PA160 would basically guarantee optimal exchange and then I could work on lowering the fan noise from all other areas.

I did put a controller on the top 7800gt fan--the reason it is so noisy is because the slots on the DFI are so close together. In reality the fan would be hiting the knurled thumbscrew on the back of the Zalmanated 7800gt below it--but I made a little spacer from a screw and some nylon tubing and gave the fan blade about a 1/16" clearance...LOL So there is that nasty nattering cavitation noise to deal with. the lower 7800gt sounds completely innocuous. The side panel fan is aimed right over the top card so oddly enough the two card run at exactly the same temps at idel and load...LOL--meant to be I guess. So having eliminated that noise I was still annoyed by a mystery fan--after pressing my ear hear and there on the case I finally found the culprit...

Turns out that the #1 noise factor is now the PC Power & Cooling TurboCool510 SLI. PC Power got famous not just for making a stout PSU--but for having one of the first PSUs with a wicked loud and powerful 80mm fan that helped cool the case.

Back in the day most cases were coming with 80mm fans due to the FF and the the wierd locations of the CPU (slots even). Also most cases were midtowers and had terrible ventilation. So a powerful fan on the PSU was like WOW.

Nowadays the PSU really just needs to cool itself and be quiet about that!

So the TurboCool is pretty much a throwback--although it still pumps out a decent rail. However it is driving me batty listening to the rush of hot air from the 510 so I will soon be refitting it with a Silverstone 560 I pulled from Crunch. The 560 bests the PC Power is stability on the rails too. Although I do not have a scope to look at the noise signatures judgng from the stability of my OverClocks with the 560 and the ability to run 24/7 for several months at maximum output (calculated online according to the components) I have complete faith in Silverstone PSUs. And the Silverstone is dead quiet.

So it is a bother--but in the long run will make Velocitor much better house broken. After losing a couple of rigs to the intense humidity this fall I am loathe to place any favorites out on the porch ATM. Only naughty, lazy rigs get the Porch...excepting Crunch. Crunch is built for the great outdoors.

I digress.

I thought I would post some screenies here and show you what Velocitor can do so far.

Still learning how to OC a pair of Gts...

The first one is where I am at right now prepping for more benches. I am Folding on both cores while benching--it makes no real impact on the score. I also ran two instances of SP2004 overnight and ran them again just now while folding--they stopped after about 20 minutes. Best so far is listed in the Fmark screenie....

Only if I can learn to whup you in CS:S.

I will be completely recomissioning Velocitor again some more.

The PSU is too loud--it is driving me insane. I broke the 200mm fan--so I am waiting till those fans show and then I will have to drain the loop (which ought to be a load of fun)and pull out all the gear--disconnect the Rad--remove all the WC gear--remove the top panel (which looks difficult--only some of the releases are easily accessable...)--remove the fan--replace the fan--replace the top panel--drill new holes in the fan sides (yep) and put everything back in. When i do that I will change the PSU to the Silverstone 560. However that PSU is not sheathed...so i will need to do something about that too...of course I neglected to order any sheathing.

I have a Plextor Slot Loading DVD that just arrived--it was for the case mod which I have pretty much cannabalized. Continuing that trend I think the Slot Loader would look good in Velocitor--depsite the performance reality that the Sony is twice the drive--and a DL burner. I will cross that bridge later... But it is a sweet thing--no tasteless logos and Brand names plasterd across the face--just a tasty black bezel with a slot and a button.

Been contemplating changing all the hoses to clear--the Primochill needs to shine! But once again I would have to order that. Tubing and sheathing...

So between pulling the whole thing down to the bare case and building it back i also have to add sheathing a serious PSU (last time it took most of the day...) and redoing the entire loop.


To be honest if I could figure out how to pull the fan blade off the fan body without damaging the motor and stuff I would leave the loop untouched.I could do that from the inside It is so nice to have a leak-free loop that I hesitate to mess with success.

So does anyone know how to pull apart one of those 200mm fans? I am gonne take a close look at the new one and see if it comes apart in some way that would alleviate major dissassembly of the entire rig.

Still wondering about Fan dissassembly.

Hoping to have a chance to start on the improvements today...
