Welcome to my Project :

This banner will not display advertising or other will not do sponsored or paid.


Hi@all !! I'm new here in this forum, I'll want to introduce myself.

I am Martin 32 years young and i live in germany biggrin.gif, have learned the Professional Electrical Engineer about 10 years ago,
and work today in the cabinet in the world market leader for sterile filling machines for the medical field.

Since I'm about 14 years old, I am very interested in what happens to everything around the PC,
but in very special for overclocking.
Since that time I have already determined a three-digit number to PC modded,
and Overclocked. Friends, family, work colleagues etc smile.gif

I'm happy to present you, a build log, diary, or whatever you may call it, to write in this forum.

This time it is my own new Baby. smile.gif


Let´s get started with the details and specs of the new PC i want to build :

Intel Core i7 4930K (Ivy Bridge-E)
Asus Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 2400MHz CL9
Two Nvidia Geforce 980Ti graphics cards from EVGA
or maybe Maxwell who knows smile.gif
Samsung 840 Pro 512GB
Corsair Obsidian 900D
Water cooled and special mod's for overclocking


Goals with this Project:

On the top of all is, Overclocking and Maximum Performance.

This is a case is get modded for Overclocking.
That means I will do everything possible to optimize and modding the housing for maximum Overclocking.
The CPU, GPU, RAM, everything on maximum overclocked ( 24/7 ) and a minimum of 24 Prime Stable.

I'm not a bling bling type what I mean:
There will be no excessive lighting effects, light mod's, illuminated no fans, no electric Mod's Mod's or plexiglass or similar etc.pp.
It will be limited to a maximum of one LED light strips, colored water addition and Kabelsleeves.
The project will get a very simple technically functional style. The colors of this project will be Black / Red / White.
I am a type of actively working to improve airflow. So good and beautiful the Corsair 900D may be, it is not perfect in terms which airflow.
By this I mean that many unnecessary air vents are closed as possible, I will realize that with Aluminuimblech.
I'll try to make a positive air pressure to generate as much dust in the housing to outside the housing to keep.
And of course to get as much air through the radiators.


I will perform the following Modifications:

1.

Air sealing the 900D mod :

A major shortcoming of the 900D is it has too much air holes / vents.
There is fooled dust, and there can be no positive air pressure are produced in the case.
All unnecessary air holes / vents are sealed with aluminum sheet.
All plates black anodized and glued with special glue.

At the red spot is an aluminum gasket purely so that as much air is sucked.



If all the holes closed with sheet metal.





At the red point is purely a Plate to seperate the uper and the button part.

3.

Motherboard CPU Backplate Mod :

I have made two Backpalte Mod's so far from my computer and the computer of my wife.
Both times it has lowered temperatures.
Stumbling block was this website:
LGA 2011 CPU socket backplate cooling modification | Nemo's Realms

On my computer it has 6 degrees brought Prime 95 Small FFT's full load.
These are 6 degrees mind you Socket temperature which then has nevertheless brought 2 degrees lower core temperature.
Therefore one must say the design is a very experimental as you will see in the following image.



There are only a few glued copper radiator Revoltec that I had lying around on the Backpalte that's all.
The structure is so completely passive not active ventilated with a fan, simply no space to housing to the wall.
I was surprised that it has brought what. Hence my thought that installed in my new computer.
But all in a much larger effective dimension as one of the pictures above looks yes.
But the Cooler is indeed a separate cooler ( Dynatron G-129 ) for socket 1366 Xeon CPUs.
The cooler is active later powered by a radial fan with air from the bottom to have maximum cooling.

And yes, it definitely brings a drop in temperatures.
It may vary depending on the structure but if a few little Coppercollers have much effect in my experimental design,
then a structure such as I have described it above certainly bring much much more.
I am assuming that my structure determined 6-12 degree Socket temperature reduction brings,
which then corresponds to about 4-6 degrees core temperature, which I think is worthwhile.
Because the entire structure of copper coolers, thermal pad, thermal paste and fan gerademal costs 45 €.
These are 45 € very well spent in a high end system if it can lower the temperature of the CPU so that,
and no matter in what way.

And what lapping a CPU is concerned.
Have my Prozesser and my wife already lapped,
Therefore, I have gained experience in this field.
But the lapping has already been 5 degrees CPU core temperature reduction on my Phenom II X4 960T OC to 4255Mhz 1,572 Volts.

Backplate cooling, lapping and CPU watercooling so I should get 5GHz definitely, I'm sure.

That´s why i look for other Solutions to reduce the Temperatures too.

So'm going to describe exactly what a backplate mod.

I'll swap the standard backplate of the mainboard ASUS Rampage IV Extreme with the second supplied.

Image 1
Standard Backplate : [/b]



Image 2
Second Backplate :



The second backplate is lapped 1200 grit sandpaper and polished with polishing paste.
The black protective layer is made of plastic which can be seen on the ( Image. 2 right ) is removed and replaced with a thermal pad ( Image 3 ).

Image 3
Thermal pad :



In the Image 4 you can see the motherboard rear is flat under the backplate. In the middle are resistors, right and left are a few few.
So overall, a larger and two smaller holes. But you can still see the small solder points ( red arrows ).
Therefore I use a thermal pad, so without the plastic layer, the stainless steel backplate caused a short circuit.

Image 4
Motherboard backsite :



The three holes where the resistors are there, I'll completely fill with the thermal pad. So that it remains strongly pressed inside and swells up almost out.
The pad is Bissel above the backplate out gaze, but this is not bad.
The G-129 Copper Cooler Dynatron Intel S1366 ( Image 5 ) is sanded with 1200 grit sandpaper and polished with polishing paste.
Before touched down is applied to the entire backplate thermal paste.
Only now we aufgestetzt the copper cooler with 4x50mm screws and screwed to the motherboard, and the pad in the three holes then completely pure pressed.

Image 5
Coppercooler :



The four holes in the copper cooler fit exactly into the motherboard holes.
This 4 screws then comes from above the EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy - including CPU nickel over it.
The backplate cooler I will still actively cooled with a fan. READY !!!

Here some pictures of the whole finished look :

Here you can see how the plastic layer pull down the backplate.



Here you can see the thermal pad which is then placed and the backplate.



Displays the Backpalte mounted and the three holes are filled with thermal pad.



Here, the backplate is beautiful "creamed" with thermal paste that was fun wink.gif



The copper cooler is mounted on the backplate, so the result looks finished.



Here's a photo of the fully assembled Backplatemod :

Here I have drawn with arrows the airflow.
Bottom right I have an opening flows in the cold air ( blue arrows ).
It´s get sucked in by the fan and get pressed through the backplate cooling fins.
The air can then be extracted from the radiator fans through the two larger holes at the top
( red arrows ).



Here it goes to the Backplatemod Test ! :

Air zones Mod :

It will give the two air zones, as well as it is possible to be separated.
The Corsair 900D has the option above, as at the bottom to attach radiators.
So I'll just keep the motherboard move an aluminum plate to separate the top and bottom into two zones.
The lower radiator will cool down the water for the CPU. The radiator cover in the area is to cool down the water for the graphics cards.

100% completed

5.

Gasket´s Mod :

Radiator optimize air pressure. What I mean is that I will mount each fan on the radiator so
that air can be sucked in or past it in the wrong place.
I will realize with so-called "Gasket" also radiator sealing tapes or tapes decoupling.
A drop of silicone there will be in the right place;)
On two 480 radiators are mounted to the overall 14x 120mm Corsair Cooling SP120 Quiet Edition in push / pull.

6.

Elaboration of the fan temperature sensor control :

Scythe Kaze Master Pro is the fan controller I use.
It has 6 channels, each channel can be operated at 12 W / 1 A.
Each channel can be additionally equipped with a temperature sensor.
The motherboard has an additional 3 temperature sensors.

Assignment of the fan control :

Fan 1 : Radiator 1 = 6x 120x120x25 Corsair Cooling Fan SP120 Quiet Edition 6 x 0,09A = 0,54A x 12V = 6,48 Watt.
Fan 2 : Front in 1. 1x 120x120x25 Corsair Cooling Fan AF120 Performance Edition 1 x 0,33A = 0,33A x 12V = 3,96 Watt.
Fan 3 : Front in 2. 1x 120x120x25 Corsair Cooling Fan AF120 Performance Edition 1 x 0,33A = 0,33A x 12V = 3,96 Watt.
Fan 4 : Radiator 2 = 8x 120x120x25 Corsair Cooling Fan SP120 Quiet Edition 8 x 0,09A = 0,72A x 12V = 8,64 Watt.
Fan 5 : Back 1x 140x140x25 Corsair Cooling Fan AF140 Quiet Edition 1 x 0,15A = 0,15A x 12V = 1,8 Watt.
Fan 6 : Pump : Laing DDC-Pumpe 12V DDC-1T = 11 Watt maximum power.

Temperature sensor :

Radiator 1 : The heated exhaust air temperature sensor.
Front in 1 : Temperature sensors measure the incoming temperature.
Front in 2 : Temperature sensors measure the incoming temperature.
Radiator 2 : The heated exhaust air temperature sensor.
Back in 1 : Temperature sensors measure the incoming temperature.
Pumpe : Watertemperature in EK Water Blocks EK-RES X3 250 Reservoir.

Motherboard temperature sensor :

1. CPU Temperature of the backplatemod.
2. GPU 1 Temperature 1 under the backplate.
2. GPU 2 Temperature 2 under the backplate.

Airbrush:

My "airbrush friend" Udo M. Schurr we paint me an airbrush on the side wall.
He is a two time World Champion and four-time Vice World Champion Body Painting / Airbrush.
That's the nicest thing about this build !

Nils its packet has arrived for me.
Can all day today working on my project and cable sleeving

Here are the first pictures of the package and the contents :













Big Update :

Night and I tonight I dealt with permanently sleeving :sleeveblack: and here is the result :

Are the front panel cables. in the picture to the terminal by ASUS Pin Conector on the motherboard.





This is the terminal by ASUS Pin Conector on the motherboard.



Looking at all the temperature sensors that I need sleeving.



The water temperature sensor is not sleeved.



And here he is sleeved.



Bitspower temperature sensor is not sleeved.



Corsair 140mm gesleeved but not yet been modded with temperature sensor.



All together at a glance.



SATA cable sleeved.



All temperature probes at a glance.



All Corsairfan modded with temperature sensor for supply air and sleeved.



Today we continue with the interior region of the housing where I need to change and improve a few things.
To my Dremel is used.
DREMEL - DAY: devil.gif
Air holes in the sheet metal for Airintack must be cut, and some other things.

Goggles on, and go!! cool.gif



Update :

How was busy again today, I dremel a bit, tomorrow it goes with drilling and cleaning on.

Here is a picture of the front panel sleeved cables.



The red arrows show what I have dremel off, here the sheet is in the air flow is not what I want.



The fasteners must be removed, inkusive suspension and frills comes later a clean foam cover over it. wink.gif



When you disassemble and dremeled.



To see the parts when they then end up in the trash.



And so it looks from Final. biggrin.gif



And so the front looks where the fans come in.

Hi barkinos98,

Thx redface.gif Yes i´am little bit crasy but i think it´s ok.
Only the crasy people have the best ideas. biggrin.gif


Update:

Amazon was here and now i have a new Camera.
Now i can get better Quality Photos for you.

I use my new Camera, and i have someting to ask !! biggrin.gif

Give Me your opinion in a decision !

I would like this 140mm fan (Image 2) mounted on the back of the case so that he blows inside.
I purely because it inflates to fit a 140mm air filter grille concerned (Image 1) that comes in not quite so much dust.
But there are now 4 ways how I can mount the air filter grille and the fan.
From the outside, as shown in (Image 4) or the inside (Image 5). I have with these two variants my problems.
Because, as seen in (Image 3) is there much metal in front of the fan.
If then the air filter grille in front of the plate (Image 5) for the Air it´s not that easy to come in.
So I am thinking if I completely remove the sheet Metal with the dremel Tool.
Advantage can be more air coming through the hole.
Then the air filter grid would only be visible and the fan inside.
Because i think the fan get significantly more CFM Airflow per hour.

Question should I get out the Metal sheet (Image 3)? Yes or No
Should I mount the fan filter grill inside or outside?

Pleace, give me your opinion, thank you ! bulb.gif
