Dark Space- FX-8350 [Build Log] - Page 5

post #41 of 117
I would save your money and go with a 240mm water cooling rig. Depending on the chip , you will be limited to 4.6 ghz or slightly above on any air cooler ( assuming stress testing on 8 cores and normal ambients). I have 2- 8350's on AIO water and both can run 5 ghz + and stay within their thermal envelope. Pretty good considering I only have $80 in cooling on both rigs ( H-100 and Thermaltake extreme 2.0).
Just my opinion , nice job on the etching btw thumb.gif

Ty for the compliment on the etching. My money is tight at the moment, so putting over 30 or 40 bucks into my machine after dropping 1500~ is about the best I can spare at the moment. I do plan on going full watercooling this fall, like September or October. I just don't want the stock for now because that 6k RPM is a bit absurd. thumb.gif I appreciate the opinion and also share that opinion. Just can't really afford it, plus I'm thinking a custom loop with a radiator in a stand beneath the case. (Personally made of course)

Good idea.
I have one of my rigs set up with the rad on the bottom. It works pretty well as I have it set up in my basement and the coolest air in the house is on the floor smile.gif.

Yeah biggrin.gif Since I'm doing the stand, I'm debating what size radiator to put in, but I've already got a basic idea of what I want to do. Just need to do some detail sketches. Got plenty of time to get things together.

Started the cut with my rotary tool, then used a jigsaw with a high tpi blade to finish the cut. Also used a round edge metal file to get rid of the rough edges and some C-molding from Xoxide.

Did it produce a nice clean cut? I have been thinking about cutting my side panel to put a window in, after all i put all this effort into building it, i want to look at it too.

I just edited the tool post lol. I used a round edge metal file to knock off the rough edges and then covered it with C-molding to cover the rubbed paint.

Excellent, I have been thinking about doing a small, slanted square cut into my side panel, beside my vents, just adding a nice touch. how did you mount the glass? nice etching by the way. you do that your self?

Thank you, yes I did that with my rotary tool, a flex shaft, and a whole myriad of diamond tip bits. Took time and patience, because at first I didn't think it would turn out well at all. When I finished I couldn't help but stare at it drool.gif I mounted it with the 10 pound exterior double sided tape. The stuff is basically a thick strip of putty. You can remove it easily, but it will hold as long as you want it to. You can also use countersink screws, but I chose to go with the tape for ease.
