Aquarium chiller yes or no? - Page 13

post #121 of 216
Had to take a bit of a detour from the main mission because my Rampage arrived.. .so I spent some time setting it up. Right now I'm fighting with Windows 7 and a dual ssd 5405 raid 0 boot install on this machine.

I like this Thermaltake case.. I have had lots of systems in it. I hope the external GTX black ice rad works.. the Triebelwerk fans (Nebelwerfers???) should do OK. LOVE the Feser I blood red no shock fluid...

Now back to the main build...

Oh, almost forgot... the dual 5970's almost blow my wiring job... but I wanted to make sure they drew from different rails

I really don't understand why you decided to hijack this random thread for your (not very good) random buildlog.

I agree that last post was random and off topic.... but I enjoyed it

This thread is about Aquarium Chillers and I am putting one into the cooling loop of the other system I am building.... so it is not such a random build log. It is right on topic...

I had a lightening strike about 4 to 6 weeks ago that caused a spike in my power line. It took out 2 power supplies, an i7 975 and a very cool D0 i7 920.

One of the power supplies only lost its high-end capacitors. Thank god that was all that happened in that machine. It was my Skulltrail.. with 2 x 9775s. Phew.... it was an Enermax Galaxy. I will buy Enermax simply because this machie ONLY lost the power supply!!!

The other machine was an Antec. At first I thought it was the proc that was dead.... so I put the 920 in. It ate that too.... no more Truepowers for me.

Yes, both machines were turned off... and behind a decent UPS. Unfortunately another machine was on and the power out drained the UPS batts and then the lightening stike occured on the power line ... Now I know that this particular UPS stops providing surge protection when the batts drain!!!

Moral of the story: I just set up an APC 3000W UPS (smart -UPS XL) to protect my Aquarium Chiller build. It is cool....

No it's not on topic, and you come off as a bit of a douche.....

IBM syseng??? From Australia??? I've worked there before, and wasn't aware they had offices, other than distribution, there.

My computer is lava cooled! Take that damit! Oh wait...

Back on topic: I thought about using a Aquarium chiller in the past matter a fact I made a thread here a couple years back, I was at one time looking at a small industral chiller that was more heavy duty than any aquarium chiller but never went through with it.
Anyhow if it's hot where your at or you don't have a good AC an aquarium chiller will make it hotter .
Watercooling is good enough for just running a good overclock, My QX6700 could of used it but 40nm cores really don't need it even at 4Ghz mine don't anyhow.

Unless your out for a record you don't need it, If you are go with dryice.

Thats because I am orginally Canadian.... and if I remember correctly, so is IBM. Proof? I think the last year IBM did support on APL was '84... or there about. I didn't do support on APL, but I took the IBM internal course on one of the last years it was offered.

Douche that.

I want my first posting on HWBOT top 100 with this (on topic aquarium) build.... and maybe in the next couple of years I will play around with SS, DICE, Cascade or LN2.

I will never be AndreYang or stummerwinter, but I will have fun trying. This Aquarium build is my first step after more than a few water cooled builds. Maybe next build I will try something that requires protection from condensation... but not yet.

It's not The Chiller... and I think my Smackover handled o/c on the 975 better than this Rampage.... I think it will be tricky to get over 4.7 GHz... but I am sure this will get better. I am also sure I can get better on The Chiller.

You'll never go far with an Aquarium chiller for cooling. I'm being blunt with you for obvious reason's. I see a lot people come and go around here, and various other site's I frequent, yet they all claim to have oddle's of high-performance computing gear and it get's irritating when they spout off about thing's, and haven't the basic knowledge required.

Aquarium chiller's are typically made with SS, Ti or ceramics thermal couplings, and none of those are great for cooling. They are built with corrosion resistance and longevity in mind.

You're a Canadian in Australia, and you claim to have worked for IBM even though you have no knowledge of the company at all.

IBM was never Canadian. It was born from a merger of three different companies in the late 1800's.
None of which are even remotely Canadian. The main office is where it's been for over a hundred years, right here in New York. It's a 2 hour drive from where I'm currently at. I've been there before, in case you haven't inferred that yet.

I don't see how it's possible to work for a company like IBM, and not know this. Even their training seminar's are filled with them promoting their history.

I did estimation work for them on server site cooling design. My solution was too expensive for them, so I wasn't contracted.

IBM still provides support for APL and APL2.

You're still a douche.
