Puh.. it's getting close to that time i power of my rig and perform the modding, i'm thinking about during starting on during that tomorrow, as all the parts has arrived and the forecast says it will rain all of tomorrow
I got the new Noctua fans, the 3000 rpm is vacuum cleaning loud at full speed, but they are also moving a ton of air, besides it is PWM so it is easy to control them. Also got the S12A PWM and as with the other beige Noctua fan i bought resently i have painted them black, and new they look much better imo. i have no idea who likes their color theme, but i only like the black and brown theme i have made, which also looks good.
Also got some new cutting disc's for my Dremel as all the owners of powerful rotary tools know how fast you can burn a pack of metal cutting disc's. So this time i got a 2 packs of 12 cutting disc's and 2 grinding disc's and one disc for cutting in wood, Dremel must to well for themselves when as their cutting bits is so expensive for the amount you get.
I have got the idea of delidding my 4790K (hammer & vice method) i delidded my old 4670K which gave a nice 8*c temp drop at 4,4 ghz, but this time around i want to also lap the IHS when it is on the chip, i have some 1000 grid sandpaper from an old project, so it be easy to also lap the IHS at the same time - But i think i'll wait abit before i do this and watch the temps in the new waterloop so i have a reference point to go out from, but i estimate i could gain upwards for 10-15*c temp reduction, plus the lapped IHS would provide much better heat transformation between the IHS and the Supremacy Evo, but again this just a thought i have now, but i'll looking it some after the system is up and running
Picture from my 4670K delid:
Sold the 4670K to get the 4790K, i got a good used cpu deal so i got 75% of the price i gave for it back, that's 135 euros, the CPU prices for the I5's is sky high here in europe
But one thing is clear... I won't but using Liquid metal thermal paste on the cpu die as it is a pain in the a** to get of again and it goes EVERYWHERE!!! So i'll either use Noctua or the Thermal Grizzly thermal paste on the die
But plenty of time to work out the details for that, i need to focus on my build starting to tomorrow
Only thing is in my head now and that is how the hell to i get the coolant safely out of the loop, i think i'll have to puncture the one of the tubes near the 120 radiator to have the air help push the coolant out, but that is always i risk... That's a headache for tomorrow Edited by Bear304 - 9/21/15 at 9:17am
