Double Trouble, Gone two loops..:) - Page 3

post #21 of 27

Yeah I suppose I could do some milling with my little benchtop drill press out in the garage...at least for just trying out some ideas, a couple of small bits and some copper block would get me started.


And regarding the rad mounts, I just used some 90 degree brackets and bolted them to the back of the case. Nothing special except I used some spacers nuts between the back case wall and the bracket so my side panels could slip underneith.
You can see the brackets better in this older picture:

Temps are still settling in, seems like it always takes about a week before I know well enough what I got out of a change and the TIM has cured somewhat.

These are my old single loop temps:

8800gtx overclocked at 670/1000, extremely happy with this block:

and my E6600 overclocked @ 3.3 1.38V, happy with loads, still somewhat higher than expected idle temps (tempted to try some other blocks):
http://www.overclock.net/gallery/dat...Load6-3-07.jpg

Splitting it out into two loops so far appears to be making it a few degrees lower, but nothing really siginifant (may 2-3C lower). My radiators keep the water temperature within about 2C from ambient, so there is plenty of capacity there. I just still havn't been pulling the heat from the CPU core into the water as well as I'd like.

Cool thanks for the explanation of the mounts. Looks good and good idea for that setup.

Wow, that's an amazing load temp for a G80, good job.

Yeah, well I mean, being within 2c from ambient is almost as good as it can get I've heard. I think the only way to get lower temps is if you get a lower ambient haha.

Very nice build, rep because I am getting lots of ideas from it. How do you like the noise levels of the YL's?

I think the noise level of the loons is perfect to my tastes, you can really hardly hear them. I run the D12-SL12s at 12v I bought at Petras here:
http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1cafa.html
I can't hear mine at all over my case intake fans which are some low speed 1350 rpm TT thunderblades.

$3.99 a piece if you order 4 or more is a heck of a deal, I like them better than several other brand 120s I bought that were several times more expensive. Couldn't say enough good about them except they do have their place for lighter applications.

The MCR320 is so open finned and thin that the loons do alright. Who knows maybe I'll get a pelt someday... at that point the MCR320s probably would struggle and I'd need to be looking at some better radiators....I have the fans for it already..
Yup your right on the fin density, i said the exact same thing on another thread
Thats why i have 90CMF SilenX's on my 480GTX and Loons on my MCR320
