I don't have links I'm not a fan of windowed panels to keep them, but if you search this thread I'm sure you will find someone who swapped it or made one for a regular panel. You pretty much find a shop that sells glass and they cut it for you. Some cases do come with glass panel instead of acrylic/plastic. Personally I look at the monitor not inside the case.

You should take pride in your artistic creation... I have mine window facing me so I can see the beauty of the custom loop.

Never forget. Air works.

I dug this out just for you. wink.gif

(Thank heavens I did Litecoin mining in the winter when I could feed this thing -25*F air and it'd come out of the 290X's at room temp.)

Yeah, cold air helps when you can have it.

Me, I am stuck without central air and the lovely Alabama heat. I would not even try to leave mine with air coolers with it breaking above 80-85F inside. On bad days it gets 90-95F inside during the Summers.

One thing I miss about North California. Way cooler through out the year and no crazy high humidity.

That's one thing that kills me living in Georgia, hot and humid summers.

You do know that air vs water does not make a single difference with regard to room temps...right? (I may have been confused with your wording)

Components generate the same heat regardless of dissipation method.

I will say that having all those blower cards suck in outside air was pretty awesome. It was below zero air heated up and fresh blown into my house. (I made a shroud for the crate and redirected a fresh air duct coming into my house)

Indeed. I am right about a hour from Florida boarder, so the heat here gets pretty bad. It right now 84F inside the house.
Water temp in my loop at 40.3C Temp on my Ti that folding at full load though is at 46C. So my loop is doing its job very well. That considering I only have four fans, and one is a 200mm @ 800rpm. So it hardly makes noise. biggrin.gif I have eLoops, but I don't even run those at their full rated speed.

I have run my cards with air coolers before. I just won't do it anymore since the temps just get ridiculous on the cards here and will straight up throttle bad because of the heat inside the house.

960 with air cooler would break over into the high 75C range. Smacked an AIO onto it, it stays happy at low 40C range with same temps inside the house. Plus, way, way less noise.
Had OG Titans on air coolers. They break into high 75C range or a bit into 80C. Smacked full cover blocks, bam down to 36C range at full load.

24/7 folding will make a card burn like no other.

And I'm nutty bugger who ran a 7970 on an air cooler for TC folding OC with temps at 75C for months. That of course when I was in North California where the temps inside the house could easily be kept lower. I did have it for a short time here in Alabama, but could not fold with it since the temps where just way to high to safely run the card during the Summers here.

So where does the heat go then? If you've found some secret in Thermodynamics, I'd bet NASA has a check do you. wink.gif

As far as I understand, the cooling method is about heat dissipation, not elimation. Help me understand. smile.gif

Water is better at moving heat so it can't collect on the GPU die meaning less temp, pretty simple really.

Also it's already been proven that room temp is unaffected by cooling method other than if you have a pretty serious overclock, plenty rads for cooling the room could possibly get hotter as it's more efficient than air cooling.
