Whats the best way to put insulation on my apogee GT? - Page 4

post #31 of 40
The quad one was sub zero at idle ..

Sure throwing your pc in a bucket will kill it but that's a somewhat different story.

when i broke mine down there was very little evidence of significant water. there definitely wasn't drips of water coming off my system. directly underneath waterblock there isn't much to be concerned about from water point of view anyway.

still my biggest reason for not going to the extent you have is that you pretty much wont be able to sell the motherboard with all the stuff all over it. which foe me makes a huge difference when i comes to upgrade.

i might point out im not disagreeing with what you said. I respect you guys alot thats for sure

Oh thats nice!!!......You said that was a 6500BTU didn't you? What kind of full load temp's were you getting on a hot OC with it? Thats got me drooling, i need to get my 5000BTU in a bucket after seeing that...I'm lucky to hold mine at 0C or a little over at load with this TEC with a good OC, it will drop down to -15 or so at idle and normal use it stays around -5C to 0 or so...

EDIT: Hey I forgot.... Thanks for pic's...Let us know how it goes with your new mobo on it.......

e2180 @ 1.7Volts 4.0Ghz staying under 50C. I was having problems with making good contact with the CPU. but 1.7V thats a lot! at stock speed or a little over over clock it would sit with no load sit below -0C bout -8C

Yeah 1.7 v-core is on up there...I would of thought you could hold it a little lower then that...But yeah it sounds like you block wasn't on to well..Get that block on right and I bet you can load at sub 0C...I make a LDPE back-plate and run my mounting studs on up through the back of my mobo tray and mobo...I can get some good hard mounts like that....

EDIT: In the first pic you can see that my back-plate legs are not all the way through the mobo mounting holes..I have neoprene between the back-plate and mobo, then I have another piece between the tray and back-plate...I pull the legs on up through the mobo, then use some nylon washers on the board side and stainless washers and nuts to space it and to lock it all in place..That way all the pressure is to the back of the tray...Its easier to do then explain..

Like this...

-28ºC with the Apogee GT might not be a good idea. I think it has a delrin top, which is prone to cracking at low temperatures.

Thanks...Next time I think I'll ream out the back-plate legs so it will just slide up and down on the studs, I have neoprene behind it anyway, all its for is to hold the legs through the mobo to insulate the studs from hitting the mobo...Its kind of a pain screwing it on and getting it the right height and all that.....

Leave one of your studs an inch or two longer and it will work as a guide to mount your block, you just stab it on that one first and its real easy to line up the rest of the holes then...

Well Hank, After seeing your slush-box I finally got off my rear and started on mine......The frost is after about 10 minutes so it looks like its in pretty good shape...

Looks like I'll be able to cut the bottom front part of the case off pretty easy and get it in a cooler without to much hassle, hopefully...
