How'd you get the Phantekls fans to go at twice their rated speed ?

What I also shuda asked was ....same OCs ? my temps went up when I lowered GPU OC a bit.

That was a typo haha. I meant 250RPM - 1250RPM.

I might investigate this. Any particular cause to what you're referring to?

I just saw it and knew that's exactly how I'd like my first WC build to end up looking like.

Actually .... I don't mind at all. Look at the pic in my siggy....I saw that and that's exactly how I wanted my build to look like.

Though if ya do that, the question of front rad becomes moot .... ya just don't need it. I did a 3 hour Furmark stress test last night and with just the 5 rad fans on the 280 + 420, Delta T was < 10C....had side panels off tho.....dunno how much that would matter....then again....only have 3 of the 6 case fans plugged in.


I have posted the following previously:

1. Single Line Diagram - Flow Diagram showing location of all components, blocks, fittings, etc. w/ Parts List

2. Parts List - Spreadsheet containing part name, stock number, links, quantities, unit costs, total cost.

3. Enthoo Dimensions - CAD Drawing of all internal Enthoo Dimensions, clearances

4. Subsystem parts Lists - For drains for example

The only think I didn't do was record the acrylic lengths .... didn't think of it till about half way through. Each of the above needs to be edited post completions.

Guess I will do a build log .... but to get ya started .... I'll edit this post with each of the parts lists as I complete the edits. First off....better give ya a budget

PC Components (Newegg mostly) = $3,978.08 (doesn't include shipping)
Wire Budget (Newmark) = $110.52 (includes taxes and shipping)
Water Cooling Budget = $2,358.45

Everything I've read has shown the 780's draw far less watts than a 290/290x. Most people are seeing 350-400w+ on their OC'ed 290's. Iirc the 780 was more in the 250-300w range(correct me if I'm wrong).

That's good to know though that you can save a bit of money by not needing to purchase 5 more fans and possibly another radiator. Guess I'd be wise to try a similar pull setup first before dumping more money on fans i may not need.

I remember this being bandied about but my weak recollection says no go..... well I think my conclusion was it required an effort / hacking that I was willing to undertake.

Yes, everything you will see published in 99% of the sites compares the stock 290x and the 780 .... a few like in Linus' 290x unboxing compared them "balls to the wall" and they got some surprising results.....I wasn't willing to sit thru Linus jabbering again for 10 minutes so skipped to the end and the power wasn't listed in the graphs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djvZaHHU4I8

Stock the 780 is about 229 watts .... overclocked, it's reported at 289-ish....at about a 30% OC.

This may be where ya numbers are coming from as OCC showed "system load" of 415 not card consumption. Tweaktown got 448 as a' system draw" also

http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/powercolor_r9_290x_oc/17.htm
http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/5824/amd-radeon-r9-290x-4gb-overclocked-reference-video-card/index22.html

But as you can see on OCC / TT, it's about 24 - watts over the overclocked 780 (say 325ish) ....they got 10% on the core and 12% on the memory which given the aggressive overclock outta the box seems reasonable. TechPowerUp recorded 330 on the PowerColor OC'd model. Teaktown had the 780 system watts at 452....4 higher than the 290x

And arriving at some of the same conclusions as you after discussing things in this thread that made me decide to go one way or another.

Speaking of the CPU block, did you use the J2 jet? The EK manual with the block says you should use it for Haswell, and I think you have a 4770k as I do. The jet really made the block noticeably bowed out. I know that's by design but I'm curious if you used that J2 jet and noticed the same concave shape to face of the block.

I'm getting ready to finally turn my loop on for the first time. Getting a little nervous about the all of the little foreign objects that could have gotten into the loop. I was really careful and rinsed everything, etc, but I know there were plenty of opportunities for a little dust or a tiny piece of chipped off rubber tubing or whatever else to get in there undetected. Not to mention the radiators. I hope I flushed them enough. I feel like I could have rinsed and repeated for days and still gotten a tiny bit of particulates coming out each time. I'm sure the loop isn't completely clean, but I'm just gonna hope that some tiny pieces of debris can live in there and not do damage. I will obviously do some flushes before adding the Mayhems concentrate, too. And maybe the Primochill Sysprep will help a bit.

Fingers crossed this thing will run well and never leak! Midway teaser:



Looking forward to it.... I hid the flat side of the EK res putting iut tot he back but seeing yours, it looks nice. Steal away, it took about a month to do my build, would love to have been able to save some time ..... Jesse's work preceded mine and I found the information invaluable..... there's a 3 paragraph inscription on my pump plate dedicated to his efforts smile.gif

I read about the curve thing when I was trying to figure out which plate was which .... labels wuda been nice. I didn't notice the curve the but I did use the J2. As to the debris.... I will ALWAYS use a clear block.... I was extremely careful flushing my stuff .... 5 gpm at good pressure alternating hot and cold to introduce thermal expansion contraction that I hoped would shake things loose.

But in the end, after 4 days on DW, I noticed that the CPU micro-channels were clogged with black crap ..... drained the loop and connected a drill pump (bad idea) to the CPU block outlet and was lucky in that it flushed all clean. Thankfully I also flushed the pump before usage as it spewed out a lotta gook but after I was done and disassembled everything I found a big wad of grease that they apparently lubed the pump gear with stick in the pump outlet. If ya ever use a pump like this, tear it down and see what may be floating around inside first. I have a great electric 120v pump..... my wife "put it away in a safe place so it wouldn't get lost" which of course means "we can't find it".

Regarding the front rad I know the 290's pull some serious wattage so just wanted to know my options should I find I need more cooling. That and if I were to add a 3rd/4th card for mining/gaming.

Ya I've seen all your posts and thank you for compiling them. Mostly it was the acrylic lengths. Didn't know if you wrote them down or by looking at performancepc's if they were pre-cut. Also if you had any other comments/suggestions that went along with your build that one wouldn't know from just seeing the parts list/final result. I'll go through your stuff again.
post #1834 of 18674
My god that's a part list after my own heart right there. Exactly how I would've done it and 100x more than I expected. Much appreciated.
post #1835 of 18674
I can't decide how to direct the fans on the bottom 480. I originally planned on intake but I didn't give much thought to the corsair sp120 fans facing down. The rings are appealing to me and I was thinking of exhausting the bottom rad instead.

Other fans include :
1x 120 front intake
2x 120 back side on a 240mm rad intake
1x 120 exhaust on back
6x 140mm on top 420 rad in taking.

Will I be okay if the bottom 8 fans exhaust out the bottom versus intake?

Depends. I wouldn't use faster than say 3450RPM, otherwise the case may start floating off the desk. wink.gif



But seriously, it should be fine. I use bottom mounted fans on my wife's Switch 810 build blowing out the bottom, and there is no reason why you couldn't do the same with this case.

I dunno .... I am back to original temps....even hit 39C last nite.

Here's some photos

I have 5 temp sensors (Top Rad In / Top Rad Out / Bottom rad In / Bottom Rad Out / Ambient) .... under GPU stress testing, I typically see 1.5C thru each of the two rads (Inlet to Outlet) .....if I turn fans down to 850 rpm, and let go for an hour, it can approach 4C from 1st rad inlet to 2nd rad outlet

I = Top Rad In
IV = Top Rad Out

II = Bottom Rad In
V = Bottom Rad Out

III = Ambient Air

Pic No. 1 = 2 minutes into Furmark .... 30.7 => 27.1 = 3.6C


Pic No. 2 = 4 minutes into Furmark .... 33.5 => 30.0 = 3.5C (fans at 675 rpm)


Pic No. 3 = 6 minutes into Furmark .... 36.3 => 32.8 = 3.5C (fans at 700 rpm)


Pic No. 4 = 8 minutes into Furmark .... 37.8 => 34.4 = 3.4C (fans at 725 rpm)


Pic No. 5 = 10 minutes into Furmark .... 38.6 => 35.1 = 3.5C (fans at 735 rpm)


Pic No. 6 = 20 minutes into Furmark .... 40.1 => 36.5 = 3.6C (fans at 760 rpm)


Pic No. 7 = 25 minutes into Furmark .... 36.4 => 32.6 = 3.8C (fans at 1218 rpm)


Pic No. 8 = 30 minutes into Furmark .... 33.1 => 29.6 = 3.5C (fans at 1228 rpm)


GPU temps peaked at 48C before i turned fans to full speed and dropped to 40C

1. Everything I've read has shown the front of the case CAN accept a 280mm radiator such as the XT45 barely but it will require slight modification to the 5 1/4 bays due to the height. A 240mm model would fit fine though without any modification. However the Alphacool ST30 is actually slightly shorter than an XT45 240mm and of course much thinner. Seems to me that would fit no? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22071/ex-rad-658/Alphacool_NexXxoS_ST30_Full_Copper_Slim_Profile_Dual_140mm_Radiator.html?tl=g30c95s930

2. Do you think due to it's thin profile either the 280 or 240mm version could fit behind the hard drive caddies while still being able to keep the drives? ( I know the XT and especially the UT versions perform much better than this ST but it appears between 600-1000rpm it performs neck and neck with the other two and in scenarios where I couldn't fit the UT60 anyways, it's not too far off of the XT45's performance at 1400rpm. http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/05/01/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-360-radiator/4/ )

A 240 xt45 will just squeeze in behind the hard drive cages. You will need to punch some holes in the bottom of the ODD cage, as there is literally no room for tubing. Getting the xt also beneficial as it has inlets on the end of rad.
I wanted the exact thing you want, only using the phanteks 140mm fans, and I wanted the maximum amount of rads without compromising the capacity of the case

In the end I went with a 420 xt45 in push pull up top, 280 monsta push pull in the bottom, and a 240 xt45 in the front

Hmmm is there anyway to use that tube with the stock top? I see it does come in black, but that's an extra $17 towards a build that I've already blown the budget on hehe.

4. That of course brings me to the question that may answer all of the above. What rpm's do you guys like to try and run your fans at? i will be cooling an 4770k and 2 R9 290's all overclocked. I would of course like to try and cool all three as quietly as possible. I will be most likely throwing an XT45 420mm up top and depending on your opinions for my above questions, may put an UT60 280mm in the bottom. If that's not enough cooling than I'll investigate putting a 240/280mm in the front of the case or behind the hard drive cages. I could of course use a 360mm in the bottom of the case but I'm thinking the difference between that and the 280mm shouldn't bee "too" much and oddly I'd like to stick with 140's all the way around if possible.

Your opinions on my setup is welcome. All radiator's will be in a push/pull configuration where possible. From everything I've read tje case fans do a nice job so will probably be using them on the radiator's. I did see the comment about the case fans but having the rubber spacers that come with the ones purchased separately.

I'm kind of in the same boat now. I'm going to be ordering a second 290 to do mining with and I'll be ordering another EK block for it. At that point I'd like to add another radiator to my battle-group but I'm not sure if I should go with a 240mm in the front or a single 140mm in the rear. I'd love to get a 280mm in there but I don't see that actually fitting.

So you ended up not trying the 280 in the front then? I'd love to try and keep the 140mm fans active so I might have to get a shroud or something if I do go with a 240mm... or try to do some modding to jam a 280mm in there. I think I'm going to do some measuring now lol.
