  1. its more of the shed is to keep the majority of the weather off but some times the weather still can cause issues via humidity and such in a shed. i am just trying to figure out how to protect the electronics without suffocating them in sealed containers.
  2. hmmm...forgot about the cooling for the components on the actual motherboard....also the shed is on its last legs lol. the only holes i was looking at having was for the tubing and power and those were going to be sealed....now after the reminder about the motherboard i will have to rethink the whole idea. arg
  3. the issue i have is that i have room in the shed for the miner but no where else in the house but also want to protect the electronics from all the weather and such so was going to build a semi sealed enclosure. this would be bad for conventional cooling hence my wanting to pass through water and cool then that way. but if its not possible its not possible. thoughts on solutions to this? and yes we have days of high humidity that house systems deal with but that doesnt apply to the shed.
  4. So I am trying to use my older cards to mine (yea I know most people will get mad hearing that word but I'm using old cards from older builds that I no longer needed, upgraded or consolidated so get over it) and was wanting to build a setup for cooling all the cards via water cooling. I know of water cooling blocks for the 2080 and 1080 but I have yet to find any blocks for the EVGA 1660 super and the MSI 1660 TI. Any help on that would be appreciated. Stay healthy and have a good day.
  5. if you could upgrade one thing in that machine what would it be? i keep the thing up to date by upgrading one part at a time and maybe more if needed (like switching when going from intel to amd when ryzen 3 first came out i also needed to upgrade the board)
  6. lol....and here i was thinking a 16 core was good enough for multithreaded applications. a better board isnt a bad idea though. prob get rid of the problematic wifi card....linux didnt like it and i had to twist its arm to work (back when i played with linux for a bit....) any thoughts on a good upgrade for the motherboard? or would it be best to get a full gaming rig designed that uses a lower faster cpu and such but lacks the threads for all the other stuff i do? so many things to consider
  7. also before any one asks, anything that i upgrade on my machine gets reused in the family desktop and the one from there is either recycled or given away. usually ancient in computer terms by that point. Both computers are also used for vr though the setup is currently on the family computer...
  8. 1 x RTX 2080 MSI AMD Ryzen 9 3950x cooled with H115i AIO 4 x 32GB DDR4 CL16 RAM @ 3333MHz (128GB total) B450 Tomahawk 1Tb m.2 512Gb ssd 8Tb external hard drive Random Broadcom 802.11AC Wifi 5 card (directly above the wifi router in the floor below me) all housed in Phanteks Enthoo Pro full tower black if i could upgrade anything what would you all recommend. Use is for 3d modeling, 3d printing, gaming, movies and programming...some times all at once as i will have stuff going in the background as i do other things.
  9. would it be cheaper to buy a predesigned desk or build one myself?
  10. so given multiple fans pulling in fresh air and pushing out warm air i should be fine with air cooling my gpu (aka no modification) and using the aio i already have for my cpu...or should i switch to a air cooler there....things to decide on...
  11. could i get away with air cooling the thing if its inside or should i stick to the water cooling idea?
  12. was going to upgrade to 3090 when i get the money and if it ever is in stock...at the same time...but yea your prob right. mesh sides would be easier. prob end up 3d printing some of this stuff and modeling it before i go and actually build it.
  13. Budget (including currency): NA as idea stage not to the budgeting stage or even the planning with parts...yet Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: upgrading current rig to not take so much space and replace aging desk at the same time. 3 monitors at 1080. 3d printing and modeling. programming. video games that need tons of memory. multi tasking with other things going on in the background Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate y
  14. So I have a computer with two graphics cards and realized an issue with heat in theory. Graphics cards fans pull air up and to the side. This leads to heat build up on the back of the card, especially if you have a second card above it. Why do they not add a few holes through the pcb and have some air flow through and pull heat out in the direction dictated by physics as it would be cheaper energy wise?
