Need Very SMALL WC Setup Or 1U Rackmount

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm to the point in my OCing where heat is my barrier. My Zalman does great until 3.0, which takes alot of juice to run stable with the 9850, then I hit 58C and don't like it.

Another reason I'm considering it is noise. My girlfriend is not a big fan of the fans.

I've also thought about a TRUE, but not sure the temp difference would be as much as WC. I'm new to all of this, so I need advice.

My case is pretty tight, so it would have to be pretty small, or something I can put in a 1 or 2U rackmount for my DAW.

Maybe you could lap your zalman and CPU? Although I think the zalmans are pretty flat already, not sure. How much do you have to spend?

ahh. the 1U rackmount caught my eye because i was planning on building a 3U triple pass 3x 120mm wc unit.

anyways, with 1U you can't do too much because the space is so limited unless it can come down to like 2 or 3 u towards the rear (which i doubt)

there isn't much you can do with out using much space.
without using alot of space call i can think of is:

The Zalman is very flat, and I honestly don't want to have to deal with shimming it because Horiz mounted there's not alot of room in there.

I spent all my money on the rig already. I just want to know my options if I get serious about WC.

That would work too. I don't even have my SKB case yet, so I'm not limited there.

I suppose I could to some research and build a big bad WCer like you. Please make a build log for it.

I also really recommend this case. It's a 4U and perfect for an ATX board especially if you have alot of HD's. I've got a work log for my air cooling mods that I'll update as soon as my bluetooth connection quits acting like a whiney little baby. "I DON'T WANNA CONNECT !! "
