Post your "ghetto rigging" shenanigans - Page 129

post #1281 of 7261
Here's my pc froma few months ago. Dual 200 watt power supplies, 6 hard drives, (not shown) and old P4 HP case, painted black, Asus A8N-E, Athlon 64. It's now been relaced with a dual core Dell. (Saving to build a new one biggrin.gif)

I've also included my ghetto-tastic HP Pavillion from like '99 I think? 512mb of RAM, An old Celeron (2.6ghz). The hard drive was always blazing hot, so I used some tape, old Xbox 360 fans, and an empty Molex connector xD. Also added a fan under that shroud to make it cooler. I got the processor up to 60* C!

I'll have to post my HTPC on here soon. biggrin.gif

 

It's in an old eMachine's case (Pentium D era) with a Sempron 140 undervolted and overclocked to 3.1 Ghz, 2 GB DDR2 memory overclocked to 920 Mhz @ CAS 5, an ASRock 760G motherboard, a 160GB WD Caviar Blue for the OS, a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 for media, an old Antec PSU because my Earthwatts 380W died, and a X1650. I have the stock fan on the X1650 disconnected because it sounds like a leaf blower so I have a 120mm fan taped to the side to keep it from overheating (still gets really hot, but it's been running okay for a few months now). I have to use the X1650 because my old 32" CRT TV only supports component or S-Video. The TV is older than I am. xD

Man, I am getting so much inspiration from this thread!

I am looking to bring back to life a number of machines, but with the exception of one (for use as a HTPC/Home-Server), for overclocking the bajeezus out of, hopefully setting at least one record for whatever component!

Here's what I have to revive:
1) AMD FX-51 + Asus SK8V + ATI X800XT-PE + 1GB Corsair XMS3200RE-TWINX2 + misc HDD's
2) AMD Athlon64 X2 4600 + Asus-built HP MB + 2GB DDR2 (not sure if 667 or 800) + Sapphire X1600 Pro 512MB + misc
3) Intel Pentium4 2.8C + Dell Socket775 MB + 4x512MB DDR2-533 + Sparkle GeForce 6600GT + misc
4) Intel Pentium4 (LGA775, not sure of speed) + Abit NT7 + 3GB DDR2 + Radeon 9600SE + Intel NIC

Then I have an Intel Core2Duo E8600 that is sitting in a Dell Optiplex 980 that I got, but which won't work unless connected to its original network, so I figured I'd be better off just gutting it for the "goods" and finding something to do with the rest. From what I hear, the E8600 can push crazy high clocks on air, and I may even water-cool it as I have so much extra stuff left over from my most recent build, so I want to push it to see what it can do. However, this is what will be going into the HTPC/Home Server as it is plenty fast for anything I would need in that application, and it's at the age where it's not too old and not too new, it's "juuuuust right" wink.gif .
There was also 8GB (4x2GB) of DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 Kingston RAM inside, a Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB SATA300, a very nice LG/Hitachi Slim DVD-R/W, and an unusual Radeon 3450HD (of which I now have 2....).

A few other parts I will be using to help with some of these overclocks: Partial List of Extra Stuff for Use in this Endeavor: (Click to show)
- 3GB total (2x512MB + 2x1GB) of DDR400 2-2-2-4 RAM
- 2GB OCZ Platinum DDR2-866 4-4-4-11 kit that has NEVER been used (2x1GB)
- 4GB Samsung 1.35v DDR3-1333/1600 "wonderam" (2x2GB, will do DDR3-2000 8-9-8-23 1.4125v and DDR3-2666 10-12-11-34 1.525v but I have yet to get the sub-timings fully stable for the latter)
....
- about 4-5 Dozen miscellaneous Fans, from 40x10mm to 140x25mm, mostly 80x25mm/92x25mm and 120x25mm though... (Various Delta/Panaflo 120x38 and 92x38 fans pulled from Dell's that push >150cfm but I need to change the pin-out on, a number of Scythe Slipstream and Kaze fans ranging 63-110cfm ratings, a dozen or more Thermaltake 80x25 2800-3800rpm adj fans pushing 28-37cfm+, another dozen Tt 92x25 2600-3500rpm fans that push up to 65cfm as well as a few Vantec Tornado's in both 80x38 and 92x38 sizes, Cooler Master 80x25 3600rpm 34.1cfm fans, Masscool 80x25 3000rpm 39cfm fans, unbranded 80mm fans, Delta 40x10/40x15/60x10/60x15/etc fans pushing anywhere from 2.5cfm to 18cfm, some Kingwin 120x25 800-1400rpm fans pushing 45-62cfm, a few Scythe Ultra-Kaze 3000rpm 120x38 fans at 130cfm, NZXT FN140-RB 140x25 1000rpm 68cfm fans, and plenty more.....)
- Tons of heatsinks, from individual RAM-sinks and VRM-sinks no bigger than 10x10x3 to NB/SB heatsinks around 30x30-to-75x75, and tons of old CPU HSF's from OEM's like Dell/HP/Toshiba/Compaq (one Dell heatsink is a single piece of surprisingly well-finished aluminum that has 138 rows of fins, which vary from 0.25mm to 2.5mm thick, and weighs a total of 26.425 ounces! The rest are mostly typical cheap OEM stuff, but which can be cut very easily into smaller heatsinks)
- Large amounts of ducting (inc: 3/4", 1", 1.25"/1.5"/1.75", 2"/2.5", 3"/3.5", 4"/4.5", and up to 12" diameter), plenty of high-quality copper pipes and plates (inc: a single tube 180cm long with OD/ID of 19mm/12.7mm and made of 99.8% copper, and also 4x sheets all around 300x600mm with thicknesses of 2.5mm, 5mm, 8mm, and 12.7mm.... problem is I don't have access to a lathe or CNC)
- 2x "old" refrigerators, 4x "old" freezers (I am not a hoarder, lol; one is a top-bottom fridge/freezer at my GF's and another is a deep-freezer at her house; the rest are a "dorm fridge" that has a vastly overpowered cooler, and 2 dorm-room mini-freezers [about 2' tall, 2' wide, 2.5' deep), a "broken" window-AC unit that works just fine but whose control panel is busted
- access to every single tool you can imagine up to a CNC machine or lathe (including a full set of air-tools, a shop-type compressor with up to 8,000psi and 5x extra storage tanks, a drill press, 2x table saws, jig-saws, 2x Dremel tools, four power drills, and more), with plenty of hardware to go with
- Plenty of painting materials, raw metal (aluminum) bars and plates that I've been collecting for use in building my own Tech-Bench, and way more than I could even begin to get into


I am just looking for some ideas as to how best to use what I have to cool these old rigs as best as possible (phase change is okay for a benchmark, but I also want to push for the highest-possible 24/7 OC so that means air cooling (MAYBE water). Also, if anyone has some "old" parts that would be useful, please PM me with a price! I am in need of, above all, Motherboards to replace the crappy Dell/HP ones that are locked down tighter than an inappropriate pun...
Here's a short list: Warning: I Want To Give You Money For Stuff! (Click to show)
- Super-Nice X38/X48 Motherboard with fantastic OC'ing capabilities for my E8600 (not sure which chipset it even uses, as I "skipped" the whole C2D/C2Q gen)
- a good AM2/AM2+ board for the A64 X2 4600+
- DDR-400/466/500 and DDR2-800/1033/1066 RAM
- decent Hard Drives using E-IDE/PATA or SATA150/300
- any "old" AGP and/or PCIe GPU's, from X800XT/7950GTX up through 5870HD/GTX480 (X850XT AGP, X1650XT AGP, 7850GT AGP, 8800GTX 512-1024 PCIe, 8800GTS 512 [G92] and/or 8800GTS 640 [G80], 9800GT/GTX/GTX+, X1900XT/X1950XT/XTX PCI or AGP, X1800XT PCIe or AGP, Radeon 3750-3870HD, GeForce GTS250-GTX295, Radeon 4850/4870HD, GeForce GTX460 216, Radeon 5770HD, Radeon 5830/5850/5870HD would all be ideal cards)
- RAID Controller Cards in PCI-e or possibly PCI (SAS would be ideal as I don't have SCSI readily available)
- SAS Hard Drives such as former-server-drives or the like, of any capacity (from the ~36GB minimum to the 600GB maximum, doesn't matter)
- Hardware Sound Cards (PCI and PCI-Express; just cheap whatever, as long as it is truly 100% hardware sound) to reduce CPU overhead
- Old computer cases, doesn't matter if beaten up, broken, whatever...
- Misc anything that you might have that is collecting dust and may in any possible way help me out with this endeavor!!!


So, if anyone has ANY ideas for me, or anything they'd like to get rid of (or trade/swap for something; I LOVE trading, so PLEASE PM me!!!!), that could help me to Go back in Time to try and set Air/Water/Phase-Change(?) clock-speed records on 5-8yr old processors and GPU's, please help me out!

I will post some pics of the goodies later, but I appreciate it!

(FYI, I am definitely going to be doing this as "ghetto" as possible... the less cash outlay, the better, as I want to see just how little money I can spend to break into the record books!)

It is, I have a bunch of them. Old X-Mean ones too. Waste of a good sticker on that case.

It's not ghetto, it's improvisation

Shoulda had the fan exhausting air.

I disagree, hot air rises and with the GPU orientation, not sure where the hot air would go, better to have it conventionally exit out the back exhaust as normal.
