Advice on WC loop for new build [Continued]

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone I've been out of the game for a bit and wanted to get some advice on a solid parts list and possible layout for a loop on a new build I'm planning. My goal is to get as much as possible under water. The only real downside that I have to consider is noise. Considering where the rig is going to be placed it will need to be pretty much silent so as not to be picked up by the nearby audio equipment. A fanless build would be amazing, but I'm not sure if it'd be doable. Lastly, I'd like to make a build log out of this when the time comes. I think it'd be a lot of fun and is a small way that I can give back a bit to the awesome folks who chip in to help.

This is continued from another thread over here.

Anyway, thank you all in advance for the help. You guys are awesome thumb.gif

Watercooling is pretty quiet, aside from the rad fans. If quiet-ness was a real priority, you could try putting the radiator further away from the audio stuff and running tubes back to the computer.

They make fan-less PSU's, I'm not sure they are strong enough to run 2 titans though. You could always replace the stock fan with a Noctua one or something though.

I think I heard that someone is making waterblocks for that motherboard. So you should be able to put everything under water.

Build logs with those kinds of budgets are always fun to see biggrin.gif

http://forums.evga.com/tm.aspx?m=1998931&mpage=1 seems to be the waterblock. I haven't found anything that is out currently though. Either way, my inner voice is saying "We must posses the precious!"

I'm still holding out hope on a potentially (almost) fanless build. But I don't think some Yate loons would be too loud. It all depends really. I'll get it as quiet as I'm able but I don't have a ton of space unfortunately frown.gif

Lol yeah I see your point. I should have clarified! The rig will be in a room somewhat close to some audio recording equipment. It's not going 24/7, but if they are recording the equipment picks up almost everything. I just don't want to be in a position where I have to turn off the unit so they can record.

Also, does anyone have any experience trying to WC that ram? How much of a pain is it, and what blocks would anyone recommend?

Pretty much all ram blocks are going to be pretty equal in performance. You'll need 8 of the dominator style casings with threads in them, and two blocks. But it's not hard at all. The hardest part is ripping the stock shells off.
