I’m using 240+360rad to cool my [email protected]+MOSFETs + 1080ti temps under load are CPU:55c-58c and GPU:52-55c.

I’m planning on upgrading to either 3900x or 9900ks depending on which is better gaming, and possibly adding a second 1080ti

Are my temps going to increase by large margin ? I really don’t want to switch my 240rad for 360 as I don’t like the look of the route I’d have to do for the tubing.
Sorry but no way to cool 800W (2x 300W VGA + OC cpu+ mofset) with only 360+240 rad , maybe with 2000rpm fans .

Just changing from an overclocked 4790K with it's mosfets being cooled to an overclocked 3900X without mosfets being cooled should be within +/- 10W and shouldn't make a noticable difference to temps, adding another ~300W videocard would make a huge difference to temps, increasing the water temp delta over ambient by over 60%. Even just getting the 9900KS would bump the temps up by a noticable amount, adding up to 100W more than your current setup if it also has it's mosfets being cooled.

Wasn’t really including the second videocard as I know that would increase temps by a good amount.

Thanks for the reply , ya I’m going to look into replacing my 240 rad for a 360 rad.

I wish SLI was more supported!

Hmm I see, yeah my ''gaming room'' is terrible. There's only 1 straight wall and that's directly behind my studio monitors/monitors. The rest of the walls are all tilted. Welcome to the attic ;(
I'm always wondering if foam/absorbers etc will do any benefits. I guess it could. Got any pictures of your setup?

Actually non-parallel surfaces are the best... since they delay reflections enough that your brain can easily filter them out. If you over-damp the room it will sound dead and weird (like cheaper headphones often do). You can always get a cheap curtain - the heavier the better - and hang it on a reflective wall... or an area rug will work too. I usually walk around the room clapping after adding absorption... if it rings, needs more absorption... if it sounds like your hands got really small or far away - you put too much.

I realized looking at those that the ones in the office are 2'x3' not 2'x4' - the ones in the theater are 2x4. Oops.

I don't have a picture of the full set, but I have some previous ones of my home office where I used the same absorbers (last picture was during leak-test... but shows where I added one of the other panels ( finally went with three behind desk and one on the close side wall, two on ceiling, and two on opposing wall):

Hahaha pretty big man! I might put some of myself.

Is anyone of you using demciflex filters here? I use them for my SMA8 but on the bottom radiator the fans are hitting the filter. On higher fan speeds it gets pretty annoying. Anyone has a solution for this? I can't really think of anything. If you spread out the filter really good, it's fine. But it moves and get's lose so over time it will hit the fan again.

Hi,
I use a metal grid to keep filter material from getting sucked into fans...
Lots out there I'm using a metal leaf guard now I was using a pattern metal grid before but switched it to a more symmetrical grid.
They sell per piece too

I see, and you place the metal grid over the filter and that would prevent it? Depending on which one you get, wouldn't it get to close to the fans?

Hi,
On my bottom I used cardboard and taped filter material to it seeing the the bottom already has a screen on it
The metal grid is on my top and front intake filters I haven't done the bottom with it yet low priority the cardboard is working okay I don't have a radiator down there just the psu pulls air in from the bottom.

I only have this problem on my bottom radiator. The rest are fine. I might have to make the sides more heavy so it pulls the middle straight. Hmm not too sure

Hi,
It's really a sad joke a forum can't deal with a little s when used on mobile device :D

Or inline links on a quick reply, or manage inline pictures decently, or...


I get most of the reasons for changing, but honestly it's hard to justify even posting a few comments here now.

My last build went 'log-less' simply because it's too much of a bother to deal with the buggy site to post anything.

It got to where there were just wayyyy more negatives to overcome than it was worth . . .


(sorry B, just couldn't pass up the pun)

I use them. I tried them inside the covers on my Merlin ST10 and the two pedestals I use. I didn't have a problem with noise, what I did notice is the fan hubs rub the filter material causing a circular pattern that damages the material. I bought new filters and put them on the outside. I do like form and function, but to me, the filters don't look horrible so they work for me on the outside, function wins the day.

The one exception is the top cover. I have both the small and 120mm top cover for my Merlin ST10. Currently the smaller is in use with the filter installed inside and it doesn't touch the fan hubs.

Only real solution is some sort of grill over the fans.

Budget upgrade. Idle dropped a bit, though have not run under load (having monitor crashing issues). Waiting on some pwm fan hubs and cables to do some cable management. For now, threw everything in there to do some school work. Spent $70 for two aluminum rads, tube, and some water-wetter.

Yes, I only have it on the bottom of my SMA8. On the front and top isn't any problem. On lower speed it's fine but as soon as the fans start speeding up then you can hear the noice quite badly. I really don't want to put them on the outside because I think it's ruins te clean look.

Hmm, do you have an example of that?

Is it being caused by the fans sucking the filter material in or what's the cause here? I just find it strange that it's only on my bottom radiator. Maybe I can place the filter on the other side of the fans. That could fix the issue perhaps.
