    Project Copper build

    So, I wanted to make another build for a good while now, and this time make a build log, and maybe enter a competition or two. My background for this is simple.. I really don't like the normal cases, even though they are different, they all look they same to me. I really liked the idea of that flat wall out-of-the case build. so that is what i went for in this one. Lets start: My hardware for this setup is: 1 x Asus MB Crosshair V Formula-Z 1 x AMD CPU FX8350 2 x AMD GPU VTX3D Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 2 x Corsair 8GB 2133MHZ DDR3 Ram 1 x Corsair CX 750w PSU 2 x Kingston Hyperx 3k 120GB SSD 555/510 MB/s in Raid 0 (Windows) 1 x Seagate 2000GB 7200RPM HDD (storage) from my sponser, whom this wasn't possible without: 1 x Alphacool NexXos UT60 420mm Radiator 1 x Alphacool Coolplex pro 10 LT Res. 3 x Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-2000 PWM Fans And of cause some fittings and some cable sleeving. Coolerkit is a Danish company selling some good quality hardware for air and watercooling, and most other parts for doing your own pc modding, with cases, PSU's, cables and others. The Idea: This idea is going to have a lot of copper in it, Copper pipes, copper rad, copper paint, I think it will look really nice with the black and the little red that is on the Mb. As mentioned before, I am going for that flat wall out-of-the case build. The watercooling loop will be made with copper pipes, with the cooling units going in parallel instead of serial. Unlike some of the others making these nice custom builds I don't have a lot of experience in making 3d renders, so you will have to do with a sketch i made, remember, that its only a sketch!, the complete idea, of how everything is gonna look and how its made, is in my head, and some of it I'll have to figure out along the road. Stay tuned for more updates on the project when I start building (just waiting for the last package wich contains the watercooling units and pump) PS. I'm Danish, so I apologize for the bad English

    Nepton 280L vs Nepton 240M

    Which is better? Nepton 280L or Nepton 240M? In many reviews, Nepton 280L cooling performance is a bit better than Nepton 240M. However Nepton 240M is amazingly quiet. (Cooling performance is my main concern.) I would like to ask, if the pump of Nepton 240M is the same one as Nepton 280L? Or which one is more powerful? I am wondering if I choose Nepton 280L, and replace it with another quiet and powerful fan, will I get the best performance with the quietest system? Thanks for any inputs.
  3. I am currently building a quiet i7-5820k/Silencio 652s based workstation but am undecided about the cooling solution. Normally I would just bang a big Hyper 612 v2 or similar in there as the quietest solution. However I want this box to be smallish, quiet and movable, and a big air cooler can damage the motherboard when moved. So looking at all in one water cooling - the Neptune's seem to be the best quiet/budget solution - so: 1. Neptune 120XL or 240M - Which would be quieter in the Silencio 652s case? Would the 120XL have to work hard and therefore be noisy? The 240M would be top mounted and therefore "directed" at me sitting right next to it. Would this make it noisier? Overall it's a quieter solution I'm after rather than an overclocking one - the machine is for work at home not play. 2. Motherboard Gigabyte X99-UD4 vs Asus X99-S - which handle variable voltage on the water block better? Dual Windows/Hackintosh build so gigabyte card easier - but.. Asus has fanexpert so automatic variable voltage to the water block is possible to keep it quieter. Anyone got experience with variable voltage on the water block with these manufacturers? Any and all thought welcome - I'd rather get it right as I won't be buying another home workstation for years!

    Cooler Master Seidon

    I bought a Cooler Master Seidon liquid cooling product for my PC build. My i7 4770k tends to run at 90 deg C during games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. And being afk it can run anywhere between 55 and 70 deg C. Is there something wrong with the liquid cooling? Is there any way I can fix it? I just need some advice. Here is the product.
  5. Hi, I have just purchased a seidon 120m and it does not say socket 1150. For the socket 2011 I need to use different standoffs so will these be ok for 1150?

    Detecting coolant leaks

    Coolant leaks can be extremely expensive and time consuming if not identified early. I didn't notice mine (Seidon 240M) until it had leaked on to my motherboard, GPU's, and power supply. Most of my hardware is black, therefore it was not readily apparent (even with the large viewing window on my Thermaltake Level 10 GT case). The best and least expensive fix I could recommend is including thin attachable sleeves that could be placed anywhere on the cooling tubes that are absorbent and change color when whetted by coolant. The other option would be a style of drip tray that is absorbent (not something that collects the coolant as this would be bad when turning the case on its side if the customer hadn't noticed the coolant collecting) and also changes color when whetted. The latter might restrict airflow and be cumbersome to attach depending on space allowance therefore I would recommend the former. I have read many times (my case included) that leaks mainly occur either on the tube fittings or the tubes themselves. This would allow the customer to place the attachable sleeves or drip tray at the lowest point in the system and give them an early, and readily apparent, warning sign to avoid further damage to there components. If you read this and agree or have found another inexpensive solution please post below.

    Two 120mm rads on Elite 130

    Would it be possible to mount a 120mm radiator/fan combo on the hdd side mount of the elite 130? I was hoping to use an R9 295x2 in the case, which would use up a 120mm cooling slot for its attached water cooling loop and leave the cpu without water cooling unless there is room for a second rad. Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Enforcer cooling

    Hello, lately I received (finally) my enforcer case (without the side fan). I've noticed that it comes with the Megaflow front fan and another pretty simple rear fan. I wanna know if having 1 Megaflow front fan and 1 Megaflow top and 1 Jetflo rear fan is enough for overclocking or should I maybe use x2 Jetflo in front, x2 Jetflo in top and x1 Jetflo in rear? Also, I wanna get the Seidon 120XL and I would like to know if I can fit Seidon 240M in my case on top or not? And if I will get 120XL, can I change the fans to whatever fan I would like to put there in the size of 120mm (something like SickleFlow)? Thank you!
