Why not cut slits into the slot covers to let stuff plug in through them as they cover the slots?

You can remove pci-e slots without removing the pins. There is a thread on here somewhere about it. All you need are new ones from a donor board. Underneath there are some tabs holding the plastic down. Pinch these in/out and it should slide off, leaving the pins.

A man of many ideas--I like that.

I may try it after all to see how it works.

Thanks, Oliver. It looked as if you could, there are just a LOT of pins, and they look to be very thin. I just hope that I don't damage any of them while removing the slots.

Anyone have an old, junky motherboard they'd like to donate as a research experiment for this?

And now I'd like to announce another big sponsor who's come on board to partner with me on refleXion.



PPCs will be sponsoring me with three of their nickel-plated RAM waterblocks, the RAM-33:





The staggered inlet/outlet design of these allow you to stack as many of them together as you like:



Each one has a carved path for the coolant to travel so that it comes in contact with every memory chip.

Given the mirror-like finish of these, they should go great in refleXion and help keep my three DDR-3 sticks nice and cool. Aside from that, they just look great and fit the theme well.

Thanks to Performance-PCs for their support in helping mold refleXion into its final form!

water cooled ram? o.O

can you say restriction with little to no benefit?


they do look cool though.

I actually may have a board or two to donate for some slot removal experimenting. Let me look around for some.

These are mainly for aesthetics as I was going to have to at least purchase some heat spreaders, anyway (my OCZ "Gold" just doesn't fit the color scheme), but these RAM blocks will actually help in my case. I do a lot of Prime95 benching, and that usually heats your RAM up big time. I'm not going to have any airflow inside the case, so these will keep the RAM nice and cool.

Plus, these aren't like RAM blocks of the past that required using a smaller tubing diameter. These allow you a normal thread size to fit the 7/16" tubing that I'm using.

That'd be great, bud. I'll send you the shipping cost through Paypal for your trouble. Preferably the board would have two PCI-e slots of 8x or 16x length so that I cold remove one and try replacing it with the other.
post #509 of 1675
Good point, though I have none of those. Take one off and put it back on!
post #510 of 1675
OH YEAH!! I get to see someone build with these!
