    how is mine funny ?? Its Tali'Zorah. she is adorable!!!
  2. Internal or External cooling ?

    yeah i figured as much. but at any case there is always fun things to make. personally im planning on making a mount that fits in a window and exhausts heat from my room and PC. dry climate with a evap aircon this would work in theory and more or less in prac as well
  3. Internal or External cooling ?

    im find with self fab, im a sheetmetal fabricator by trade. im just looking into other peoples thoughts on the matter. designing stuff like that isn't too hard, making it attractive and flexible, makes it a little farder, its making a product people want that is the hard part
  4. Internal or External cooling ?

    yeah but i was thinking of a more flexible option, something for someone who wants to put the rad's fans and all that jazz on themselves, give them the panel (like a computer case, they pick the parts you supply the mounting). its not for everyone but id like to see if it was more affordable would more people op for it.
  5. Internal or External cooling ?

    ok, cool. ill look into making something, just want to see if people like the idea or design, not too hard to make them, just wondering what people would think of the idea. ideally you don't want it ugly, bulky or impractical. so yeah that could be the real challenge
  6. Internal or External cooling ?

    so in a general stand point, its a select market that would do this wouldn't it. like naturally more people would opt for internal or air, but there would be some people who would want to use external, just they are more few and far between i guess.
  7. Internal or External cooling ?

    well i found my SS AP180's to be rather quiet (actually make less noise when they arent drawing air thru a filter). i didn't mean internal cases are less flexible, i was talking about the existing external cooling options that exist, they are pricey and they are built to pnp, not really a customised thing. wiring wise it could be interesting but say you can get hands on a DC power adopter (like a phone charger or router power pack kinda thing) than you could wire it into a fan controller that you could install onto the panel. so the panel could be designed to house the controller, self powered and that would remove the need of running wires out of the case, but at the cost of a power point. i think if you were to port heat directly out of the house, you might not make your PC cooler, but you might be able to drop ambient temps a bit (maybe a few degrees but hey in summer... makes a wooorld of difference). im using a Thermaltake core v21, its a great little cube case, but short of buying another one of these cases and bolting them together, maybe some SFF cases could benifit form am nice clean looking rad stand with a simple and clean cooling system installed, yeah you lose portability, and if thats your thing id advise keeping it on air, but say you just want the case and you wanted to do a small build, you like the case and design, so u make a build for it but it runs hot, a small rad an pump set up externally wouldn't be such a bad thing as long as you keep it small and flexible. allow the builder to choose their parts to install onto the panel, would that be something that is better than the current offerings of premade external cooling systems would it not ???
  8. Internal or External cooling ?

    yeah, fair enough, im just trying to gauge the thoughts towards it, see i know how to design and make some pieces, just wondering if people like the idea of external cooling, i mean for some more extreme things some people might, but from what i have seen the external systems arent what you would call cheap, and the flexibility on what they offer isn't much, i was thinking if you were going to go external having the choice of what you use should be more flexible. the portability is defaintly something. power wise things could get interesting. for me personally im thinking for my setup, my pc sit infront of a window, and in summer i use a evaporative cooling system (i don't live in more dry climate) on the house, these work best when a window is slightly open, now what i was thinking is have a 150mm wide pannel with rad's and fans mounted to said panel and have that mounted into the window (so it uses the window frame to hold in place, but doesnt take up the whole window, only 150mm of a 400mm wide opening.) this would create a exhaust point which would be assisted by the evap aircon for the house, it would draw the incoming cool air thats p[umped into the room to this exhaust point and pump a larger portion of the heat produced by the PC directly outside, which should keep my room below 45c in summer (yes thats how hot it generally can get with a PC in a room where i live, not comfortable at all) so something like that for me would be worth it. yes it loses portability, but it i dont want to lug it about i just want to leave it be and use it. it would also reduce noise levels, and keep the general inside temps of the PC cooler as the rad isn't needing to be cooled down inside a preheated enviroment. as for other people if they wanted to use a external bracket then a simple design panel with the flexibilty to install what you want on it would be more appealing than being forced to buy one with a pump rad and all that jazz for $300 and have no real say in what goes into it. im sure more people would rather the flexibility of their liquid loop, i mean thats what i seem to think that is what people want correct ?
  9. Internal or External cooling ?

    ok well i have a design to hold the rad's and even potential EK pump\res up to 200mm in height, it is a stand alone bracket you could drop on your desk, i could design something that could mount to a 120-140 fan mount. so say you had access to these pieces would it be worth getting if you had the ports\cut outs of the case to accommodate the external cooling system ?
  10. Internal or External cooling ?

    what stops people from doing it cleanly thou. like what makes it so much more expensive of messy. or why would more rads be needed ?? im not playing stupid im actually trying to confirm thoughts an research this. is it like mounting issues, why would it cost more? cooling wise depending on the application it could be better or worse.. like some mATX or ITX cases
  11. OH COME ON INTEL WHAT THE SHIT!!!. still selling 6700k's for $30 more than a 7700K and now the 8700 is out, lets throw $100 more on top of that.. intel What the fuck was the point of kabylake then! why even bring it out. just to fill in a 6month gap of nothing much or was it just a cash grab!! and please feel free to go deepthroat a fucking shotgun with your new i3 prices!! fuck off! 

  12. Internal or External cooling ?

    so ease of use and aesthetics is a good point, im using a Thermaltake core v21, it has the cut out to port the heat out. i live in a pretty hot area for summer, and i was thinking an easier way to drop room temp heat in summer would be to port it directly out a window. moving the PC from windowless side of a room to the other has changed the heat ALot. on my Old FX4300 putting a AIO on it dropped temps buy about 10c (yeah that thing was a space heater. summers were not fun with it). generally you can't get your PC below ambient temps. but keeping room ambient's low could be do'able if location of the PC and the cooling isnt far from the window. similar to what linus was trying to achieve but on a smaller scale and closer proximity to the window. making heat transfer out alot higher than how he done it. not the damage resistance part is defiantly a thing that needs to be in place. and a quick release of something in place for moving it, stuff like that needs to be in place i know. just wondering how i can approach the situation, but the talk and feed back is helpful.
  13. Internal or External cooling ?

    the full room cooling yes of course it was going to dissipate before the rad, im not talking running it on a massive scale, im talking more local to the PC, keeping runs shorter. hard tubing is kinda not a great idea externally, but you can hardline it to the back of the case and then go soft tubing, the evaporation will happen regardless. but say you can keep it local to one PC why is it not such a big thing ? whats stopping people doing it ? (putting aside evaporation)
  14. So what are people's thoughts on cooling, internal and external, which would people prefer and why ? would you rather have a external cooling ? if so do you, if not whats stopping you from an external cooling system ? just trying to work something out and see if people want external cooling and why there is a lack of it
  15. EK-XRES 140 DDC 3.2 mount points

    Oh sweet, that makes my life heaps easier. thank you!! im designing a external cooling rack. but also nothing bulky. i like the idea of the combo pump an res, it should keep things tidy.
