VEGA has Landed

Definitely something to think about... If the paste job on your 15 was half as bad as it was on my 17... you are definitely doing to want to repaste. It would be a shame to put all this great work into a cooling solution only to be bottle necked by something like this bird crap paste job Dell did for me.

Yeah the glue they use is not great. I repasted mine then had a issue with my audio (still not completely solved) and they threw a new motherboard in with their gunk back on. I will repaste sometime soon haha.

On another note... Look what i got :




Vega has landed biggrin.gif

In Addition :


So i think i now have everything. Now its just to put in a good number of hours...
The excitement is building.

More Watercooling parts arrived

So we are in the process of moving and so there has been very very very little progress here, but i have completed the one side of the 24 pin cable and the other side is not far from completion.



Then its the 2 x 8 pin PCI-E, molex and fan/pump cables.
So 24 done, 28 to go.

Ouch, that just made things real... haha

Then i received the last things for my watercooling. As soon as the cables are done, i need to start bending tubes and setting this all up.





Sorry for the slow progress but hopefully in a week things will normalize a tiny bit haha.

Ok so house move done, and i have a update smile.gif
So i have completed all the cables for the GPU (i still have to do the molex and fans) and she is alive :




This is getting a better picture of the full control box.


The insides are going to be tight, considering that the water pipes need to still travel through there and some more USB but there will be space redface.gif



Next up, is bending the pipes for the res and the GPU, but i still need to figure out how i want the pipes from the GPU to go thinking.gif

Sorry for the boring update, but hey, it is 40 x 4ft cables all sleeved later. still about 16 to do buttkick.gif

So its been a long time. This build IS NOT DEAD

I have just been busy with life.
Anyways, after a very long time, i have been back and forth, using a 1070, and VEGA, constantly trying to resolve my Vega Issues.
And finally it looks like i have made huge progress last night.

It was the stupid PCI-E riser cable.
I kid not. I have finally been running for around 12 hours stable.
I know its not long, but for me, this is huge haha.
I even managed to complete a TimeSpy run : https://www.3dmark.com/spy/4219307
6087 points all stock, with CPU no tin performance mode.
I will try again tonight with the CPU in performance mode and maybe even a slight OC
Hoping for between 6500 and 7000.

Other changes to the build.
I have decided i do not need the fans from below now, considering the huge thermal improvement the Amp give by not using the internal GPU.
It really does make the impact ALOT less and i can now focus on the watercooling and the finalization of the Control center.
Also with the removal of the riser cable, i will need to alter the build slightly as the AMP board now needs to poke through from under the cover instead of a tiny riser cable.

I will just do some more stress tests over the next few days before continuing with the physical build.
But there is some theory to do before then that you guys can help with.
I will be posting a few images later, with the possible watercooling pipe routes.
I should be able to get these up later today. Any input would be great.

Thanks

Ok, so im down to annual updates haha.
The good news, is that im getting back into my desk, and this time im going to finish

The bad news, i think i need a new name for this project...

System Updates
So after struggling for a while, with heat and performance when using the 1070 in the laptop, and driver issues using the RX Vega 64 in the alienware Amp, i decided to throw in the towel.

I friend was needing a fairly high end laptop for media related projects and the Alienware was a pretty good fit, and at the same time i found the Microsoft Surface Book 2....
So i sold the Alienware and bought a Surface Book2 15". It runs great but too has some heat issues, which i eventually figured out how to undervolt the CPU and things are now fantastic...When on the Laptops display. When i connect it to my ultrawide...things grind to a halt with trying to get a 1060 to run far too many pixels, which i fully expected.

But in addition, my desk build was primarily made for a external GPU, under water.. So when i got the surface, my longer-term plans was to wait for Ryzen 3, and then build a Desk PC and have the Surface book as my mobile solution and im VERY happy i went that route.

I now have a Ryzen 5 3600, in a Gigabyte X470 Gaming 7 with my Vega 64 and all is running wonderfully.
Now obviously this has to tie into my desk, with the GPU mount and watercooling.

So without further ado, here are the

Desk Updates

As above, I now need to fit a ATX board, into my desk....

I was pretty sure the hole for the Alienware was big enough, I just needed to create a tray for the motherboard to fit into:
20190717_204128

20190724_212304

I determined the GPU mount, and PSU positions could still stay perfectly as is, and therefore orderd a LONG PCI-E riser cable.
20190724_212432

20190724_212437

And thats what i ended up with. The tray will be, like the GPU mount, covered in Carbon fiber Twill to time them together.

The plans also got a bit more elaborate...
Occasionally, i have a Lan at my house, and a friend uses my Surface...So i need to be able to move my desktop. Occasionally.
I also dont mind a few minutes to remove a few screws etc to do this. So the idea is that the Motherboard tray will be removable, as will the GPU mount, and using Quick Disconnects, i will be able to remove the "umbilical cord" of cables and extenders between the motherboard and GPU and switch it into a more compact solution, but more on that to come.

After a bit, no wait, ALOT of cutting, this is where I ended up for the motherboard tray:
20190727_133820

20190727_133840



Next i am starting the GPU Mount, and the carbon fibre work there, as well as mounts for 2 fans to the Motherboard tray and some other bit and bobs.

Sneak Peak of whats to come:

GPU Mount : Applying Carbon Fiber
Ok, As mentioned, I have officially started with the Carbon fiber work.
The first stage is essentially gluing the matting to the wood template using an epoxy-based glue. I am essentially creating a carbon skin, but it will also provide the structure in a few areas, mainly tieing the templates together.
I also broke my USB hub on disassembly and seeing that I am now building a desktop, now a laptop(which only had 2 USB ports) I am for now not implementing the USB ports on the GPU Mount.

Starting off by cutting a piece of matt off and trimming it to size:
20190805_195439
20190805_195605

The starting the gluing process :
20190805_204956
20190805_210303

The templates all attached, and fitting well :
20190806_073644_HDR

And this is about halfway around the edges, wrapping them around and gluing to the back.
