i dont really understand what you mean by that, what pump/res do you have??

I stashed my 3TB WD Red in my R5's 5.25" bay when I removed the 2nd drive cage. Grabbed some foam from PSU packaging, cut some pieces of it > duct tape to hold the pieces together..



Ahem.. Ain't pretty but it works.
Highest I've seen it go is 40C. Right now 37C and I've got encoding jobs running through Handbrake for few hours already. Pretty limited airflow for it as I've got the upper 5.25" bay occupied with BD drive and the front of the 5.25" bay I've got sealed with duct tape as well. The HR-02 Macho fan might have slight influence on it.
Surprised the foam actually absorbs the little vibrations this 5400rpm drive emits. TY-147 in bottom intake position fastened with screws caused few orders of magnitude more vibrations than this solution. Finally I had use for the handful of silicone mount thingydoodlers I've gotten along with Noctua fans in the past, with them I got rid of the annoying vibration.

My 5820K is crusing along at 4.5Ghz and I just have a bunch of slowly spinning fans. Everything is dead quiet (even tweaked my graphics card BIOS to slow the fans down at idle); I can't imagine water cooling being any quieter. It may be a touch cooler, but I doubt I'd get much more juice out of my chip. rolleyes.gif

Idle temps aren't much different between air and water usually (at least on the builds I have done - could have high temps on air if the case air flow isn't designed well). It is the heavy load temps that are very different.

I don't have any use for 3.5" drives. I have some in a drive cage externally that I can connect to to access. May not be quite as fast, but good enough.

Whatever works! You've never really lived if you've never had unsecured components floating in a case. wink.gif

I always wondered why case companies don't make a fan mount up there for precisely what you've done (They also make 3.5 -> 5.25 adapters wink.gif ). I just freak out if I don't have active cooling on my drives. My WD Black drives ran warm, these new 5TB Greens are pretty cool...and quiet!

I figured most would be on a NAS or external of some sort.

During AIDA 64, my hottest core peaked at 74*C (165*F). It's a bit toastier than I'd like, but way below any harmful threshold and 90% my work is idle stuff. It will be interesting to see once I have it rendering a video or something.

I'd love to play with watercooling, but I'd be too much of a nervous wreck! wheee.gif

My temps won't really go over 50 C no matter how hard I push (have a 360 x 60 rad cooling a 4790k and a titan x). And that is with fans at a medium speed (have 2000 rpm noctuas, so about 1100 rpm). Idle, the temps sit at ~34C with fans at 400 rpm. Just use good compression fittings and there isn't much to worry about.

Are you still using that Corsair watercooler? I was reading about people having them leak and dripping some goo like substance all over their video cards. That was enough right there to say nope. I am like a magnet for product defects, not worth the risk. rolleyes.gif

I love the idea, I really do. I just don't think for my usage its necessary (as if anything in this thread is). tongue.gif

No. Have a hardline custom loop now. Yeah its not necessary. I like to look at it more than anything. Peace of mind that you arent thermally stressing the pcb and electronics much is good also.

I'm thinking about using a Corsair AiO back in the 750D again. The Audio in the Design S is just terrible. The front panel doesn't work and the fans from the rad rattle against the roof.

It's a great design for WC'ing but the bad quality is a deal breaker for me.

I emailed a month ago for a new front panel which they said they would send in 2 weeks and I never heard from them again.

Fractal quality hasn't been the greatest. I switched to the R3 from an old Antec. Design was good, fit and finished was only okay. I recently got an R4 and fit and finish was bad; the entire case is twisted and doors don't fit right, etc. In fact I called and emailed Fractal trying to get a replacement. No reply seems to be common. I've been working since June to get a replacement.

I'm hoping they follow through and get me a new case. I finally got through to a human just this week; I'll know what they'll do on Monday and post back then.
