The Black Phantom System update: http://www.overclock.net/album.php?u=146414



Installed a Danger Den DD-GTX580/570 Black Chrome Top and Nickle Base water block to my GTX580. The Chrome finish is so shiny you can only see the reflection of the motherboard. The block dropped my temps from 35C idle/72C load to 28C idle/42 load. Very pleased with the block's look and performance. Also changed the TIM on both the CPU and GPU blocks to IC Diamond 24k. It's quite thick and pasty, but really performs well. CPU Temps 30C idle/52C load.







I also swapped the clear tubing for black PrimoFlex Pro LRT Tubing - 3/8in. ID X 5/8in. OD. Since the inside of the case is black it looks better now with the black and silver colors tubes and fittings. Plus the 12GB RAM are black and silver too.

Added a Black Ice GT stealth 120mm Radiator as well. Here is where my Phantom has a problem. The 120mm Radiator would hit the top 360 radiator if I mounted it on the inside back fan area. Mounting it outside I found the two tubing holes are too close together, so the radiator tube holes don't match up to the case holes. I had to create enough space to fit a 45 degree rotary fitting in order to get the left tube to connect. I used a 120mm fan (gutted) as a shroud/spacer and a regular 120mm fan connected to the radiator pushing air out and another fan on back of the rad. pulling air. This allowed the tubes to connect fine, and the rad. airflow is great, but it looks like a primitive jet pack out back.





I swapped out the fans for Yate Loon Medium and high fans - big improvement! The mediums at full speed are silent and more more air than the stock white NZXT fans, and the high speed ones push a ton of air, yet get loud at full speed. Funny thing, the temps of the CPU and GPU barely change 1C when the high speed fans are low or high. I'd just get the medium Yates in the future as they are excellent.

Changed the side door 200mm fan a couple times too. First the stock fan, but at full it barely moves any air. I then tried the NZXT FN 200RB "high speed" fan, but it was REALLY noisy at speeds medium and up. Returned that and got a Coolermaster 200 Red LED fan (I prefer red over blue) and it performs right in between the stock and high speed NZXT fans. Moves more air than the stock, yet at full speed is very quiet. One small problem was the mounting holes on the fan don't line up with the case holes. So I just drilled new holes which are very close to the case holes - about 4mm. The fan filter is too small for the Cooler Master 200mm fan, just barely, so I left it out.



Added a little 5mm Red LED into the Water reservoir to light it up in the front 5.25mm drive bay. I was going to change the top buttons and controller light from blue to red... next time. The two Yate Loon Medium Red LED fans on the door dimm as you lower the speed from the top control, which is nice at night.



As most of you know, cases gets really heavy when you have all your parts in, so these small wheels from home depot make it easier to move around.


May suprise some water coolers here, but I'm switching from distilled water (silver coil and sulf.) to a Clear Koolance fluid.


There are a few small things I may change in the future, but for now I'm very happy with this current set up.

What are you ambient temps compared to theirs? Directly comparing temps to other peoples' usually yields faulty results.

Well, my similar i7-920 temps dropped just over 10C (load) with the XSPC kit. IC Diamond 24k TIM helped too. Your temps of 65C is fine for the i7, and you really won't get much of a higher overclock on the i7-950 by switching to WC, nor any real world performance gain.

Is it the heat coming out of the case that's bothering you? Why the sudden need to switch to WC? And since you're just cooling the CPU, the Corsair H60 or H70 are good performers without needing a build yourself water cooling kit.

Since you fold, I do as well, I'd first recommend getting a better Video Card (GPU). You'll get better ppd numbers than your CPU and at faster times. Your GTS 250 is definitely the weaker hardware in your PC. The GTX560, for example, is a great card that would yield higher folding results than your 950 or GTS250. You could even lower your CPU clock to 3.8, save power/energy, heat and still have better folding results.

For CUDA-based Folding (which is up to 140 times faster than current CPU's), you will want to run at least the Folding@Home-GPU.

Draining my loop for the first time. I have no drain line, any advice?

ATM i'm just going to remove everything from my case, pull the res out of the front bay, remove the fillport plug and just tip it upside down.

no on the heat issue. i want to basically tinker around and push as much out of the chip as i can.

as far as the video card goes, ive upgraded, tho not much better lol. but i am happy with my ppd. 33K PPD from the cpu alone on bigadv at the current wattage i havnt found a gfx card to compare. nor the price either. dropping it doesnt help, i have tried several setups voltages, clocks, etc... still tweaking tho

sorry if my msg is hard to read. i just woke up.

now:
idle: 35-36

web browsing/YouTube: never over 41

does that look normal with a 26-27C ambient with my current clocks/voltages?

also, how much did you guys tighten the screws on the cpu block? i'm almost at where the springs are fully compressed, but not quite completely there.

thanks

Im finally deciding to watercool my 470 but i don't know which block i want. I've heard issues with the Ek block and i haven't heard anything about the bitspower. Which has me leaning towards to DD.. i wish koolance still made theirs =/

First time going water here and I bought the RS240 kit. I will add another rs240 rad down the road once I decide to water my gpu also. I have an antec kuhler 620 on hand but I decided to sell it and get the xspc kit instead. Will install and test it later tonight.

I'm seriously leaning towards getting an rs360 (half the price) for the top of my 700d to pair with my rx240. The only problem is that the 240 is mounted at the top, internally. and the 360 would be on the top, externally.

I've seen some build logs where people have used rad sandwiches. Obviously it's not as good, but do you think it would be worthwhile?

All i'd need is a 360 rad, 2 barbs, and another 1m of tubing.
