post #1571 of 3171

This is my first attempt at a custom build. Btw what kind of mount do i need to mount this on the wall?
post #1572 of 3171
Very nice.

I used this mount http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5032767.htmt, if you're not from the UK I'm sure Wallmart or somewhere like will have one like it.






I decided to wall mount my monitor as well, just got to tidy up the cables.

what mtx case is that?

It's a Parvum S2.0

Hi all, really considering this case and have a couple of questions. (will be water cooling)

1st, probably going to sound really dumb but when wall mounting, how far off the wall should the case be for sufficient air flow out the back of the rad/case? I presume you shouldn't flush mount it even though most TV vesa mounts aren't exactly a flush fit. Just wanted to check what you guys reckon.

2nd, is a 480 60mm thick rad sufficient for a 6700k @ 4.5ghz 1.25v and 2x 1070's OC'd + mobo VRMs(viii formula mobo)

Cheers.

Care to expound on that a little, . . . .


That's just as unhelpful as an answer can be, . . . plus it's essentially wrong . . .


There's no reason that a full thickness 480, especially in P-P, won't be just fine for mild OC and everyday gaming.


It's not going to set OC or benchmark records, but it should easily come within a 10*C to 15*C delta t under load, and with fairly average ambients, his temps will be well within acceptable ranges.


The 6700 and the 1070's are pretty power efficient . . . . We've come a long way in the last decade when it comes to performance per watt.


He'll probably have more problems getting SLi to work with the problem prone risers than from temps . .


At least it will look orders of magnitude better than some of the bastardized messes I've seen here with nothing more to brag about than a 2 or 3C delta t . . . . . .

Hint . . . . the low delta t just isn't worth trashing what could have been a decent looking build for

I believe you're talking about my "thrashed" P5. And I remember yourself "thrashing" this case with some rad brackets, mirrors etc. Never seen it finished tho...
some ppl like bling bling, tons of leds and rainbow colours, other like rad overkill, both means modding the case, a bit unfair and sadare that's only your way of modding it is acceptable.
anyway, one 480 is not going to be enough for decent temperatures, no matter what thickness. Rad area counts, not thickness. That cpu will be better off cooled by some good air cooler than one 480 rad and TWO 1070 which generate quite a bit of heat into the loop.

That is my 2p.

I'm inclined to agree with this. The CPU and GPU's alone at stock are almost 400 watts TDP, which pretty much maxes out the rad using the rule of 120 rad per 100 watt TDP, minus the OC and mobo. If you leave the mobo out of the loop it would work but don't expect awesome temps. The thicker rad will help and definitely go push pull and will probably have to run your fans faster. The P5 wasn't really designed for SLI imo, but it was designed perfectly for water cooling CPU and a single GPU.

We obviously don't share the same aesthetic values.

I have no issue with builds with massive rad space, but if that's the intention, then why not start with a case that allows for it by design, instead of loading up a case that was never designed for it, and doesn't lend itself well to it.

Might as well duct tape a Mora Pro to a little itx Parvum case . . . and call it a case mod

I put the P5 on the back burner basically because it's a huge waste of space and like everything else TT, a POS from a build quality perspective. It has very limited enhancement options, and the more P5 builds I see, the less I want to have one, or waste time working on one.

It looked interesting and unique, and I bought it on an impulse, (probably after a few drinks) . . . I should have known better . . . at least I've learned.

That Tt just showed its knock off of the EK Vulture case, and by that, clearly demonstrated that it's core ethic is: "Why do R&D, when you can steal from someone else that already did", just moves Tt orders of magnitude lower on my list of companies to support.


Waiting for someone to do such an awesome job of a P5 build that I have to take it all back . . . . .
