Overview

I'm(a colossal noob) trying to build a system that can run deep learning rig with graphic card capabilities. Since I may also overclock these parts, I thought it would better if get a chassis that would help with water-cooling.

 

The chassis(spectre 2.0) is from singularity computers(shout out to Daniel Cannon) has integrated cable management, a reservoir for cooling liquid, and a PSU compartment. The inspirations are previous builds from Jayz two cents' Beerbongs and Bentleys Custom PC Case!, Linus, and l3p spectre

 

The PSU shroud has provision for attaching a vertical GPU mount. With the mount, only a single SSD can be hooked up on the shroud. Still figuring out if I should use a bracket for the HDD.

 

Most of the parts were ordered a year ago. I was worried that TitanXP water blocks would have got decommissioned since the introduction of the RTX series. Fortunately, EKWB has compatible blocks and backplates.

 

I haven't designed the loop yet since it needs a lot more research than I expected.

 

So here's the chassis build progress. I'll update you more.

Cool stuff, especially the H100i!

I've never tried liquid cooling, mostly because I'm unusually paranoid of the possibility of a leak. Whenever I try and experiment with liquid cooling, my brain gives me this equation:

Quote

leak + liquid cooling + computer parts = unusable bits of silicon.

Good luck with your build.

Cant wait to see how this turns out, why did you order a pump top when the case already has a place for the pump?

Thanks for pointing it out. My bad. Updated the link to point to D5 pump.

Seems like cable mod cables may take a little bit of time to ship due to corona virus outbreak. Hope the organization looks out for the workforce.

Since the cable mod team is still working on the sleeved cables, just did a smoke test to check the conditions of mobo, RAM, graphics card, and m2 SSDs. The test involved no OS or CPU cooler. I used the stock cables from corsair.   

 

The mobo has a DIMM2 card to hold two SSDs and an extra SSD slot under the armor. Yet to decide whether to two cool these SSDs.

 

The mobo also has a live dash to display the CPU, memory and other component liveliness which I could capture only to a small extent.

Cable Mod's sleeved cables and few other parts got delivered. Will update with more build progress.

I hope everyone has quarantined themselves and is staying safe.

 

My country has gone into lockdown for a period of 21days. Not much progress has been made with the build a few of the parts are still stuck at the post office.

 

Meanwhile, I thought I'd pose these questions and ask for suggestions

  1. Should I plug this into a 2-pin W_IN header as shown below? The manual says the header is for monitoring the liquid cooling system.

Screenshot_20200405-103146_Drive.thumb.jpg.1ad7f4590ddab39a11687dfc8d62e440.jpg

         Or plug into T_SENSOR1 which is meant for thermistor cable.

Screenshot_20200405-103242_Drive.thumb.jpg.98b6904f1db7cac21f3d1d5d4a1d6a6a.jpg

  • Have two alphacool nexxos 360mm radiators(for top and front panel) which are to be cooled by Deepcool mf120 fans(Each box includes 3 fans. Each fan is controlled by a single fan controller powered by a SATA connector and a PWM header connector. The fan controller can connect up to 3 fans at once. Have box 2 boxes. One for each radiator. RGB illumination can only be controlled through an app over WIFI). Thought I'd connect two 4-pin PWM headers to ASUS MOBO's fan headers and control the fan speed through ASUS's fan expert 4 utility. These are the fan connectors.

Screenshot_20200405-103053_Drive.thumb.jpg.3b3d01a8fe168c70ed978d7dac9d2e29.jpg

 

  1. Should I connect one pwm connector to CPU_FAN header and another one to any other one(like H_AMP_FAN or CHA_FAN1)? I have also seen MOBO throw up an error saying that "CPU fan is not detected" during tests. So, the CPU_FAN header needs to be occupied no matter what. 
  2. Or should I with CHA_FAN1 and CHA_FAN2 which are meant for chassis fans.

 

Bumping...

Not a lot of progress has been made since the last post due to lockdown.

However I did try to mount the fans on the panels and test them for working. Had to wire the power cables through the panel for better management. The fans are loud AF. May be it might get silent once the curves are set.

Back with more updates. Had shot few videos while assembling. Would be posting them.

 

Here's a Vlog of installation of CableMod neon green sleeved cables on the case. The case has cable combs built into the manifold which helps in alignment.

A VLog of EKWB velocity CPU block installation. The jet plate was swapped out as the stock one is for 1151 chipset and mine is 2066 chipset. The inlet and outlet port have been rotated and made vertical for easy loop design.

 

 

 

This is a VLog of EKWB GTX FE Nickel water block and EK-FC1080 GTX Ti backplate on the TitanXP graphics card. TitanXp water blocks were either decommissioned or out of stock at the time of buying. So had to go with a 1080Ti water block.

 

Major pain in the ass while dis-assembling was decoupling the fan cable and GEFORCE logo cable. So watch out when you do.  Use a screwdriver or a tweezer.

 

Had to cover most of the FETs and chokes as I thought cooling them would be a good idea.

 

The instructions mention different types of screws for the back of the PCB. So look out for that Have replaced the stock port covers with other covers and also the protruded thermal pad which is not in the video.

As I didn't have access to CAD, I made an initial mock-up of the custom loop using Styrofoam.

 

Re-posting my own earlier post here 

 

This wonky makeshift loop gives an okay picture of the bends and lengths of the pipes.

 

The loop order is as follows: outlet of the reservoir built into the manifold at the back -> into the graphic block -> radiator mounted on the top panel -> tube above the motherboard -> into the CPU block -> radiator mounted on to the front panel(not in the picture) -> inlet of the reservoir at the top. 

 

I wanted to keep the reservoir between the GPU and the CPU block even though I knew that the loop order doesn't make much difference in the overall temperature. The loop order with GPU ->  CPU -> top radiator and then the rest would've been an easier one. But the case would have looked empty with fewer pipes.

Very clever physical mocking up, like Cardboard Aided Design turned up to 11.

 

Big fan of these cases and eager to see what you'll make of it.

Preparing all the tubes with the fittings before diving in.

 

Understand that tube bending would have saved a lot of time and eliminated all the fail points at the 90 degree joints. But I get scared shitless when it comes to bending and moreover the tubes are acrylic.

 

Heads-up to anyone buying singularity 16MM acrylic tubes and Bitspower 16MM fittings. Had to struggle while shoving the tube into the fittings. Had to use a lot *soap water* . Assume that the tubes’ OD is exactly 16mm.spacer.png

 

Shout out to Paul's Hardware. His video suggested getting the mini saw(buy here) for acrylic tube cutting. 

 

Also would suggest getting the primo chill RFB deburrer. They saved a lot of time with the tube reaming although there were a lot of leftover flakes.

Had to soak them in distilled water as there were leftover acrylic flakes after chamfing.

A VLog of the singularity acrylic tube installation. Had to use two different cameras to capture the process. Hence the difference in lighting.
