This might be of interest to members of this club, 240mm AIO with the rad/fan being only 37mm thick. Decent performance too.

How interesting. That makes the rad 22mm thick. I wonder if it's really any good? I'd probably personally replace the fans with Prolimatech USV12s, as mine have a history of doing well on rads.

Is this available already?

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/silverstone_tundra_slim_aio_review/1 Here is a review for it.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA8FN3GH6371 It is listed on Newegg, but coming from an Asian vendor and a bit pricey. Sure they will be available soon.

Posted this over in the usff/sff club too just in case anyone is having da ja vu, I custom cooled my sub 15L PC and here is some pics:

Here is the leak test!


Shot of the side, there will be a window here eventually...


And here is the con!


So unfortunately I had to put the fans on the top as I didn't think far enough ahead to make the CPU>GPU pipe long enough to go around outside the case. So the case was 14.9L, it now takes up around 16.9L (still SFF, just) but I reckon if I get a few more rotaries and tubing it should fit inside the case as I don't want to be without these fans!

Here is the GPU block, such a good deal alphacool have got going here ended up being £60 for a GPU including all mounting hardware and a backplate!


Hope someone is interested!

Looking good! I was about to make a witty comment how external fans are cheating, but you addressed that already biggrin.gif

What GPU are you using? The mITX rig in your sig has a 290x, but that would get quite hot with the CPU on a single 240mm rad, no?

Yes its a 290x and no problem with heat, gotta remember the 295x2 cools 2 of those cores with just a 120mm rad, a 240mm for the CPU and 290x seems to be working good, much quieter on load, unfortunately because of the noisy pump in the alphacool eisberg.

This week I picked up an Inwin D Frame Mini cheap: $80 for a close-out floor model. I threw some on-hand parts for a nice build.



I was thinking about putting it under water, since I have a complete loop ready to go for a project that didn't work out. Then I had a vision about a PC with no moving parts: a completely fanless build in the open D Frame Mini for convection cooling. This is something I've never seen, and the wide open D Frame lends itself to this application like no other case.

I have these on hand:
- Board - Asus Maximus VII Impact mITX board*
- CPU - i7 4790K * <-- for power/WC build
- CPU - Pentium G3258 * <-- for a silent build
- RAM - 16 G (2x8g) PNY 1866 DDR 3
- Boot Drive - Samsung EVO 850 SSD, 250GB (x2 in striped RAID)
- Data Drive - Samsung EVO 840 SSD 500GB
- GPU - MSI GTX 980 4G *
- PSU - be quiet 500W

* Waterblocks for these are already on hand.

I'm looking at these for possible possible purchase:
- CPU cooler - NoFan CR-95
- CPU cooler - Zalman FX100
- GPU - Asus GTX 750 fanless
- PSU - Seasonic 400W fanless

Thoughts, anyone? Go powerful with water cooling on with what I have, or go subtle with no moving parts?

Really depends on what you plan on using it for, the difference between a GTX 980/4790k and a GTX 750/G3258 are fairly extreme. The fanless setup sounds very cool if it will be powerful enough for you..

Yeah, that's putting a finger exactly on my problem. I already have two rigs, and don't actually need a third. But I'm a gear whore and couldn't pass by the deal on the D Frame case.

I'm tending toward the fanless build in my mind, because I already have a SLI surround gaming rig. A quiet rig could be a great music server in the living room with options for casual gaming on my large TV screen..

I'd really like to see a completely fanless build. Something that I contemplated was modding a NoFan CR-95 onto a GPU, it should be able to cool a GTX 960 no worries.

For the CPU cooler, go with the NoFan one. SPCR tested quite a few "passive" coolers and only the NoFan one worked without any additional airflow. I guess if it's just the Pentium, you could use pretty much any tower cooler and position it so that the chimney effect generates airflow through the fins.
