u crasy

 

 

 

in a good way


We've now got three different subjects going on, an Asian fox and motorbike fetish, two guys talking about Norway invasions and then some other people talking about body building... This thread is turning into a free for all fetish infested Norwegian circle jerk.

Your build logs get cooler and cooler, looking very much forward to all of this! 

Also; i'm not sure what "like" to give this, theres no badass option or the likes... this needs to be a thing. 


Bleigh!  Ever hear of AC series?

I would say good point is appropriate. But yes, the old like was far easier;)

You really love some passive cooling huh ?
Ye rich bastard. LOL :D

Anyways, your full passive build log got my curiosity, now you got my attention.

Followed !

Yes I do.

Also I'm selling the old builds, so I do get cash for the new once.

Thank you.

But to be fair, I used a lot of models provided by: http://www.grabcad.com

Crazy. I like it

What will you be using it for?

I had to run some simualtions lately that took over 12 hours each. For situation like this, this number crucher will be handy. Also it will be used a lot for folding at home. And gaming from time to time.

Honestly, I was doing way to much theoretical and software based stuff at work and study over the last several month. So I need a hardware project to work on. It may sound funny, but machining metal is a good work out for me. Also I really wanted to do something with mineral oil for a long time.

As a result, I sold my other rig and sooked for some affordable stuff on ebay. And here I am.

Seems cool, just out of curiosity, what do you do for your job? what types of simulations?

I'm in the middle of my master degree in electronic engineering. But I only study half time and the other half I'm working for a company that develops electronic equipment for other companies.

There I developt an algorithm that can detect an acoustic alarm even if it's so noisy a human ear can't heat it. As people die when the system fails, we had to do very rigid and excessive testing (simulation).

I am excited to see where this build will go! By your calculations, how much surface area on a black anodized aluminum heatsink with heat pipes (if the PC has all fins vertical, for optimal passive airflow) would I need to keep a 3930k and 390x cool at 75 degrees? I want to get two large heatsinks and put the GPU on one and the motherboard on the other. Yes, I have plans on how to do this ;) I just want to know if it would be at all feasible. I want a nice compact PC, but watercooling is surprisingly bulky.

You are looking at 400-450 watts without OC. You need about two 400mm long chunks of the heat sink i used. This equals to about 3m^2.

Also the base plat is so thik it can distrubute the heat over the whole heat sink without heat pipes. but you probably need some to tranport the heat from the CPU / GPU to the heat sink. Also I recommend using a copper plate for the GPU like I did in the Silent cube. Heat pipes are difficult to handle and expensive.

I was planning on making a full cover waterblock for the motherboard, except replacing the waterblock with aluminum or copper. Basically put blocks on the hot bits xD

And on the other side, I would put the GPU on the other heatsink with a pcie riser cable. I need my craigslist PC to sell...

I put a lot of effort into finding a way to connect the CPU to the big heat sink without heat pipes. All my solutions would have requred about 10 copper or a very inconvenient placement. Finaly I gave up and just used normal CPU coolers as I will submerge the build in oil anyway. I'm interested to see your solution.

So I just got an idea. I have a bin with AT LEAST 50 pounds worth of aluminum heatsinks. I should totally CAST the heatsinks. Sure, it wouldnt be pretty, but it woukd be interesting and cheap to say the least. Then I could cast adapter plate things to make the hot parts of the motherboard all one flat surface, and find someone with an old clapped out bridgeport to machine flat surfaces ;)

I'd LOVE to see this build log!

 

EDIT: @iamdarkyoshi 50 pounds is just enougth and not to much :P

I will need to think about it. I would need to finish my 3D printer, I would need to get out my aluminum casting stuff, get propane, and plenty of other things. Might have to do it this summer...
