My first attempt at a gaming/streaming/design rig, looking for suggestion on my build idea... suggestions appreciated. - Page 7

I took a risk on this... but newegg had a shell shocker today for the h100 (refurbed units) for 55$... that's half off!... so long as the unit looks good I feel pretty good about it... if it doesn't work I have 30 days to replace it. Fingers crossed... this way i save 55 bucks and still get the corsair goodness smile.gif

so far the CPU, cooler, and PSU on the way but gotta wait till the 1st for the rest smile.gif

Do you have a power supply to plug it into and try it out? I would set it up somewhere and let it run for a bit, just to see if there is any pump squeal or excessive fan noise. Great deal BTW!

YES... great idea, makes perfect sense! smile.gif

Yeah at first I was like ehhh refurb.... but then i realized it was an exact model that was recommended... and then I checked the original price and its $65 off original... and $55 off the current new egg prices so I thought shoot I better snag one smile.gif

Just saw a mod of that azza genesis case... pretty slick... evaporative (or bong) cooling I think he called it?

http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/case-mod/2012/09/25/arctic-rain-by-initialdrivegtr/1

the first picture isn't the azza case... its from another evaporative build... but the new build is with the azza genesis case. Pretty neato...

This of course is way beyond my capabilities at this point... but it does make that azza case look pretty sweet wink.gif

This got me thinking. I wonder if anyone has ever used the refrigerator motor from a mini fridge.. and then created a small enclosure to house a reservoir? Now that I think of it I'm certain its been done... I happen to have an extra mini fridge xD .... I don't know if that is something I would ever venture into... but who knows? smile.gif

Can the 1st of the month get here already? XD

**edit** first package arrived... the PSU is now here!... Weeee.... now its time fess up to my parents that I'm building another computer before the rest of the 10 boxes show up xD

Bwahahaha! Always a fun conversation.

A refrigerator doesn't use a motor, it uses a compressor to compress coolant and force it through the coils where it gains the heat and then radiates out the heat. biggrin.gif Your thinking is in the right place, just wrong component lol.

Yeah the Azza case is pretty sick. Check out the Azza 4000. It has room for an E-ATX system AND a m-ITX system. It's HUGE.

I saw someones idea... hey just drill holes in the freezer... keep your radiator in there, and put refreshments in the fridge... LOL... I see the big issue with using a compressor is condensation - thats a noo goodie I'm guessing when it comes to PC components xD

I'm gonna check out that azza 4000 right now smile.gif

**edit** discontinued by newegg frown.gif but still looks cool as well smile.gif massive to be able to do both e-atx and m-itx LOL wowzers

FYI, Don't push your CPU too hard on that UD3 if you did order it. I had it. I got 5.2GHz stable and then PPPOOOF went the VRMs I think the max that board can take for the CPU is something like 300 watts. I got the UD5 after that. Gigabyte did fix the board though

Lol, no what I mean is the compressor acts differently from a pump. It has MUCH higher output pressure since it compresses gas. As for the radiator in the freezer, you would burn up the compressor for it trying to pull the heat out of it. smile.gif Just putting the radiator in there wouldn't have a problem with condensation, and that COULD work to make your water cooling subambient, but simple water cooling dissipates enough heat to create a subambient cooling system.

The 4000 is a MASSIVE case. thumb.gif

I'm thinking he settled on the ASUS board with VRM cooling and 6+2 DIGI Phasing.

yesssir smile.gif I did indeed decide to go with the asus smile.gif

it's not ordered yet but still thanks for looking out... that's good info to have!

speaking of cases.... shell shocker....

COOLER MASTER HAF series RC-912-KKN1 Black

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

40 bucks... not too bad... something to consider to save a few bucks... however those other 100+ cases look so nice though....


**EDIT** I got another noob question for ya... since I've never done water cooling... do I need thermal paste for the connection point between the cpu and the cooler, like you do with an after market heatsink? and if so... should the basic arctic silver brand stuff do the trick?

Yes, you are still connecting two pieces of metal. Any thermal paste will do, some people have their preferences though. I shaved 5C changing my crappy coolermaster TIM that came with the 212EVO to Artic Silver 5. (I couldn't find my Artic 5 when I was replacing the EVO with the H110.)
