    I’m not too paticularly proud of this loop as I kinda rushed it so I can oc my cpu, but it looks ok. I have Ryzen 7 1700, d5 pump with koolance top and res, acrylic mount for the pump that I made (wasn’t gonna spend 20 bucks on mounting brackets), 560 ti, Asrock x370 sli/ac , xspc 240mm rad, and thats about it. I was worried about the mayhems pastel white bc of Jayztwocents, but I actually do enjoy the look a lot. Wish I could’ve bought the new primochill vue, but the mayhems was significantly cheaper at 13 bucks.

    Cinebench is a well respected benchmark which many people use unlike standardized benchmarks like SPEC. If AMD demonstrates the performance of their new GPU in Superposition it is acceptable because it is a commonly used program.
     
    If I show off how fast my car is by racing on a flat road on which the car's tyres are suited for (common scenario like Cinebench, Cinebench suits Ryzen well) it is more honest and reliable than attaching rockets to the car and launching it from an aircraft carrier launch system (Intel showing off a non existent product overclocked 60% and cooled with a 1000L cooler).

    Agreed.  Cherry picking some benchmarks for a product you are selling to make it look good is one thing.  Cherry picking a CPU, Motherboard, Cooler, Firmware to unlock it and not really intending to sell it (probably) just to shit on someone else's product introduction isn't.

    If anyone believed that a 28 core chip at 5GHz which could be cooled with normal method was going to be on sale when the same chip running at 3GHz costs $10K...

    The VRMs had finned copper heatsinks with heatpipes which were larger than those used for the Pentium 4!
    Showing what your product is good at is not cheating, Cinebench is a commonly used benchmark and generally a good estimate. Companies who do not show off how good their product can be don't exist for long.

    811 and 165 at 4.7ghz 1.4something volts. Will get a h240x in a couple weeks so I can get cooler temps, but sandy runs super hot.

    Wouldn't be worth it. I don't have the cooling capacity to go over 4.6 as I'm reaching high 70s now. On that note, I got 801 at 4.6ghz 1.4v. I think I'm gonna put it into my case now to play some games.

    765 at 4.4ghz on a 2600k 1.38v. Temps are high at load mid 70s and idles around 38. I have a Cooler Master Hyper T4 on it and I was expecting cooler temps.

    i would recommend you remove the bottom two fans. i have the 301 aswell, tough i run it with  a custom waterloop at the moment. you are correct that the fron tof the case is supposed to be an exhaust, so definitely keep it that way! it's a pretty bad choke point already
     
    i have 3 fans in this case. all three are exhaust. 2 on the front, 1 on the rear, none on th ebottom. my temps are pretty good in this config, tough again, i am running a waterloop.

    Here are The Foundry's Superposition and Firestrike scores. I suspect that the not super great physics performance is holding back the system as a whole.

    This kid builds pc reacted to SonoDanshi in Project: Node way will it fit! - A hardline watercooled Node202   
    Since roughly the start of 2016 I've been contemplating a new watercooling project, but wasn't sure what to do as I was happy with my main rig already. Then my thoughts turned to upgrading my HTPC so it could play games as well as serve media (with the aim to dust off my racing seat/wheel and play on the htpc. I spent some time thinking about how to approach this and then @red773 made a thread about how he'd watercooled a node202 which really kicked off my interest in making this a reality - although I wanted to go hardline and also wanted it to look completely stock from the outside (so no chopping the top of the case up to let tubes fit etc...).
     
    Fast forward a few weeks and I had pretty much everything I needed apart from the pump/res (more on that in a later post) and the final list of fittings.

     
    For anyone who wants a complete parts list you can see the pcpp link in the spoiler..
     
    Before I even consider putting any of the watercooling parts together, I had to fix a huge issue..... The motherboard and RAM are red and black - which I absolutely detest (sorry to the millions out there who love it). I stripped off everything with red paint on it and already thought the bare components looked a lot better...

     
    For the heatsinks, I simply masked off all the black areas leaving the red paint exposed before giving it a light sand. The RAM accents were just sanded and the chipset heatsink had a combination of masking and being attacked with a sharp blade to remove the plastic covering it came with to expose the red paint.

     
    As I live in a high rise apartment, I don't have access to large areas to put together a spray booth so I had to go ghetto on it in my living room!


     
    A few coats later and it looked a bit like this

     
     
    That's it for now but plenty of updates and pics to follow (I'll add spoilers to the first post for late comers).

    That my curious friend is a Sapphire Radeon HD 4870x2 and yes, it does work. I picked it up for $15 along with a handful of other gpus and the one next to it, a BFG Geforce GTX 295. BFG's last gpu release before they went bankrupt and disappeared. Unfortunately, that one doesn't work but its still a cool piece to own.
     
    Edit: I'm thinking about doing like video series on youtube about the stuff I find at my semi-local computer recycler amd whether they work or not. I think it would be cool so show what you can find if you look in some less than ideal places. I few weeks prior to me getting these two, I got a Galaxy Geforce GTX 680 for $20 and I was able to resell it for $110 without a struggle.

    That PC is bad for the price honestly.
     
    You can get an HP or Dell with similar or better specs for around $1200 AUD.
     
    Actually, you can get an HP Omen with a R5 1600 and a GTX 1070 for the exact same price.

    Barrow was like asrock; it used to be meh, but now (at least since a couple years ago) it's been great! Also, aquacomputer does indeed sell tempered glass windowed gpu waterblock. I didn't have one, but I did have a regular copper Aquacomputer waterblock on my old 780 ti. They are of the highest quality imo. Way better than the overrated overpriced EK stuff

    This is The Foundry, The name is inspired by its high heat output, or supposedly high heat of the main components involved. Every single part in this build was found in one of my parts bins or was purchased used through the hardwareswap sub-reddit.

    Discounting the parts I had already owned previously, I spent $808 usd. About 40% of that is made up of the gorgeous Nvidia & EVGA Geforce GTX 780s, Those were originally purchased together under the assumption that both were Nvidia reference cards but upon closer inspection, only one was a reference card and the other was an EVGA unit with the same reference cooler. Not that I'm complaining, the stock cooler is beautiful and surprisingly effective at cooling these two bad boys!

    As for this awesome tank of a case, I had originally planned on reusing my Phanteks Enthoo Evolv mATX but when I picked up a FX 9590 for $65, I knew that whatever motherboard I picked, it was gonna be a full atx sized case so I had to find something used or a not real expensive new option. I couldn't really find something I particularly liked with good cable management so I turned to trying to find something locally. Enter the Cooler Master HAF XM. Yes, its scuffed and it shows its age but all that adds character and doesn't change the fact that it has all the right features. Tool-less drive cages that support both 3.5" drives and 2.5" drives without additional adapters, upto 4 huge 200mm fans and a single rear 140mm fan or in my particular config, two 200mm intake fans, one of which was "borrowed" the my Phantek case, the two 140 SP140L that came with the well hidden Corsair H110i GTX and a single 140mm in the back, also "borrowed" from the Phantek case. The 140s are all exhaust fans. The last key feature I desperately wanted was good cable management and this thing delivered, easily hiding all the beefy cables on that RMx 1000w. The litter shroud covering the routing to the back of the case is also a very nice touch to hide the cables. Not that anyone would see them since it lacks a window of any kind, which suits me just fine.

    With the FX 9590 comes the requirement of a beefy vrm on the motherboard. Originally I had planned on picking up a Asus Crosshair V for $150 but it had been sold before I got to it. Sad day but I found a Sabertooth R2 which is only a step down from the Crosshair V and I got it for a decent bargain with a 16GB kit of ram.

    It took me about a month to pull together all the parts but it was well worth the wait for this. I still need to fine tune it to get the full potential out of the 9590 and the 780s but even as is, the performance was actually better than I was expecting and at 1080p, those 780s can trade blows with the 980 and even trail a 1070 at half the price! (for now, the prices may be coming down soon!) The only downside I for see, aside from the usual problems with sli (which I hope to mitigate with some tinkering in Nvidia Inspector), is gaming at 1440p. The 3GB of vram that's available is gonna struggle in certain games but that'll be an issue for a later date when I upgrade my aged Asus VK248H-CSM. Its served me well for the past 4 years but now its time for an upgrade that will likely come this summer. I was eying something like this guy but I may try and find something for a little less or maybe snag something during the 4th of July sale that will inevitable happen. I'll post a few benchmarks and temps later after I finish tuning up the 9590 and dial in a comfortable OC on the 780s.
