PCH passive cooling in the end?

I think you have to polish those blocks smile.gif

Got to do a little more of the preliminary work on my TH10A, . . the little infrastructure stuff that's easier to do before it's full of heavy components and such.

I need to have a way to connect the system to the chiller, and I need a power connection for the auxiliary power supplies, . . so I made up a little polished aluminum apron along the back edge with a pair of pass-thrus, a modular connector and a small coaxial power jack for the remote control's power brick.

I also tweaked the power doors hardware setup so I have a passage for the tubing to run thru to the pass-thrus all nicely captured and secure.

I know the bracket looks bent on the left side, but it's just an optical illusion . . . I had to check it to be sure.





The nice part, is that I didn't have to drill any new holes in the case, . . . just took advantage of what was already there.

I think I finally nailed the lighting and detail of taking some pictures with my S5 that I can finally be satisfied and stop taking ridiculous amounts of pictures...

Im sure people are getting sick of seeing the same rig over and over again without anything changing >.<<br />
At this point, the only thing I really want to upgrade is my pumps... I really feel like a single MCP35x is not enough for each loop. I feel like I could be getting better CPU temps. Not to mention having them right behind the slim 240mm rad for the GPU's is causing alot of hot air being released onto them, and they can get hot to the touch if im not careful. They are also loud under full speed and have a ton of vibration....

Really kicking myself for not getting D5s a long time ago.... I dont want to drop almost 500$ for a couple of them but I have really wanted them for a long time. Much better aesthetics and mounting options, much better power and flow, much less vibration and noise... just everything about them would be better for me at this point.

Good looking build thumb.gif

I agree with ya on the d5. 50% of my DDC have failed, 0% of my d5 have failed. Overall much quieter and better too. Only plus to the DDC is smaller foot print

Thank you !

Ive actually had these pumps for quite some time and theyve served me well. One of them I purchased with an Apogee Drive II for my very first watercooling build on an mATX build, and then I wasn't even aware of the PWM capability and had it running 100% for a while. I guess ive just been a little luckier in the sense that ive never once used a stock pump top (not even the swiftech included item with g1/4" threads), and ive always had somewhat high restriction in my loops. Ive also had aftermarket housing and heatsinks for both of them for almost their entire lifetimes.

I just cant help but constantly compare to what I could have with D5s. The aesthetics alone make me want to upgrade.... Even though the head pressure is apparently slightly lower, I cant imagine not having a pretty decent drop in overall temperatures from a D5 dedicated to each loop.

Im not sure why, but I wish I could purchase just the reservoir adapter piece for pump tops, so that I can just use my current res tubes, caps, and fittings without having to pay 100$ for two kits to changeover the new pumps.... that really irks me... Bad enough that I probably wont be able to get much value back from my current pumps...

another minor annoyance to me is the fact that Bitspower changed the finish of the Black sparkle mod tops... I still like them alot, but I really liked the chromed finish they had before that matched the fittings...

That is if you don't use the heatsink they sell for it frown.gif The two DDC I have in my caselab ended up taking a big amount of space. The D5 Definitely is a quieter and reliable pump but the DDC is a one of a kind for the performance it has.
post #10320 of 22194
Well ive said and read enough, come Monday, I think im going to bite the bullet and buy 2 new MCP655 s, black acetal POM Bitspower V2 mod tops, 2 Black sparkle mod kits and mounts, 2 80mm res top kits, and 2 , multi z 200mm reservoirs.

I think its going to cost me about 500$

But im excited nonetheless smile.gif
