No that's simply moving the single ambient air sensor around from different locations ....I had asked for suggestions few pages back.

I have:

Top Rad In
Top Rad Out
Bottom Rad In
Bottom Rad Out

Have 2 channels left on Six Eyes, so was gonna measure Ambient Air and Case Air, Leaning towards the bottom location....only 0.2 above lowest temp and easiest to mount. Case air will go under rear fan. Case temps, ni isea....both sidepanels still off smile.gif .... haven't started sleeving yet ..... fingers need a break aftrer all those knurled fittings smile.gif


BTW, did final tube adjustments and filled loop with coolant ....still crappy phone pics tho



Temps still at 75 with Mayems tho was like 2 am last nite when I tested w/ DW (heat goes down to 55 F at 10pm) like 75 now....

One of the things entering into this equation is whether or not dual EK top can be placed at the floor in the pump mount thing Phanteks provide us. I suppose it won´t fit, anyone have the holes spacing from the top of their heads?

Cheers

EDIT- nevermind the dimensions...I found on the manual. What about flow, would make any difference dual top or 2x single tops at different points in the loop? I think it does not make any difference but I would like to hear opinions on it.

I was gonna go with twin D5s on a Bay Res but the got scared off those with the vibration and leaks stories......so decided on a tube res (results above) and then after much flip flopping in the end went with the 35x2 ..... cost wasn't much different .....

But, no.....the pumps don't know where the are but always best to have them at low points to avoid mishaps and ease loop start up efforts..

FYI, that mobile 5% off cannot be used with any other discount/promotion. You won't be able to use it on the discounted Enthoo Primo. I did use the 5% off to get $30 off a 4930K though.

That's correct....But there's no "promo" tho on the Enthoo.....just a discount

Just put it n my cart...applied the code and got $10.25 off ...... total is $194.74 before $20 rebate + shipping

Sitting in my cart right now with the discount subtracted.

I've had the promo discount removed from my order before after it was placed at Newegg when I had an already discounted item in there. They literally cancelled my order until they got a reply from me about them removing my promo discount and agreeing/disgreeing with the new charges. But, I guess if that new lower price isn't temporary or related to Black Friday then it might stand I suppose.
post #1657 of 18663
Ouchies .... that's not been my experience..... I gotta buy $30k a year from newegg so have lotta experience... not for me .... but for neighborhood kids, clients, etc

bought the 1st 780 after the nVidia promo .... wouldn't let me use the mobile 5% promo
bought the 2nd 780 after the nVidia promo .... wouldn't let me use the mobile 5% promo

Doing XMas shopping got turned down last night can't use a "coupon code" on manufacturer sponsored deal with a % off discount".... For me they always tells ya when ya can't use at order time on the mobile promotions ... later on same night bought some Logitech speakers .... heavily discounted (not a promo) $100 .... used the mobile 5% promo, shipped this morning,

Bought 6 Corsair 500Rs in last 4 months .... every other week either the white or black ones is $20 discounted below the other.....all 6 times, bought the lower priced one and used a promo code with it, no problems on any one of them

Basically, what I have found is, if it's in an email or ya see + $10 off with promo code 1128BFF5, ends 12/1 on the page, that can't be combined with anything.

Got it.. No wonder the temps on top are higher. What it the object of temperature readings at different locations without having the side covers on? Airflow in and round case will be very different with side covers installed.

Looking really nice!

Bottom sounds good. Was just curious what case temps are.

At the start of the day, all my fans ran at about 1050 rpm and min pump speed was over 3000 rpm.. .... nothing i did in the BIOS would change that. So I tired FanXpert2 and had no luck there either........ so i tried running the "Fan Tuning" Feature and low and behold I got the pump to run at 1400 rpm ..... however it would recognize that fans existed.

So I tried tuning it w/ just one fan connected and that seemed to work..... but as soon as I connected them all back up.... we were at 1232 rpm..... couldn't make it go away, even uninstalled AiSuite. After 3.5 hours of troubleshooting .... here's what i discovered..... I can connect 7 fans to that PCB thingie (5 rads, 2 front and 1 rear) and I get PWM control..... as long as the 12V power is disconnected. As soon as I connect the 12V power..... all fans go to full speed.

Can anyone confirm or is this just me.

Did you ever figure anything out about this? I'm still running all of my fans off a regular fan header, so they're at full blast but with one of those extenders that adds resistance and cuts the power in half or so, because whatever was keeping my fans nice and quiet while the fan hub was plugged into CPU OPT got screwed up because I tried to make an "optimized" automatic profile with Fan Xpert. All it did was make it so they didn't work at all. The LED's on the front fans would be on but flickered very slightly, so I'm guessing the profile that stupid Fan Xpert made is just giving them a tiny bit of power (or something). I tried uninstalling the 3way Optimization portion of AI Suite III (which is where Fan Xpert resides), I tried downloading SpeedFan to hopefully take over and override the screwed up profile, and other things, but something is still applied and keeping my fans from working when plugged into the CPU OPT header, which was working great until I messed with Fan Xpert. Honestly not even sure what was applying a profile to that header to begin with, whether it was AI Suite or something else, but it made my fans nice and quiet.

I just gave up and plugged into a header that gives me full power and cut the power to some of the fans manually with those resistor cables, but it's still a bit loud. I just did this until I get something like the Six Eyes or a Lamptron, but it would be nice if I could get it working again. I'm not sure why there's still a screwed up profile on there holding them back when plugged into CPU OPT, since I uninstalled Fan Xpert (by uninstalled the 3-way Optimization thing, since I prefer to overclock thru the BIOS anyway). Also, the fans DO run nice and quiet when I'm in the BIOS, but as soon as I boot to the logon screen, they turn off because obviously the screwed up profile becomes effective. Not sure how to get rid of whatever is holding them back, or fix it.

Anyway, how do you like the Six Eyes? You can't use it to control your pump, right (still not sure if I want a variable pump for my build, or if I want the hassle/benefit of PWM pump)? I'm trying to determine what is the the best fan controller to get in that price range. I don't know if there's a Lamptron that would be better in that price range or what, so I'll need to look into it more, but would like your opinion on it. BTW, your build looks great!

I intend to place my order in the next day or two so I can get Frozen CPU's 9% discount and maybe get this build close to $800. Although I'm going to have to order a couple things elsewhere, because the UT60 280 rad is out of stock, for one thing. Possibly the CPU block as well. I think the CSQ frosted acrylic EK Supremacy is still in stock, but the clean/clear version is out of stock and that's the one that would match my GTX 780 water block. Though I do like the frosted acrylic and the CSQ design.
