Oil Cooled PC case planning

Bajantechnician

I need a ghetto, fish tank thing

 

thing, as in non rubber,

cuz we all know what rubber does.....................

 

 

anyways

I need a old cooling container thats glass, Im wondering i f a fish tank would be enough. Something like a 10 gallon or such. Im wondering on how i can have all the parts mounted.

Speaking of parts, theyre all sorted out.

 

FX9590, dual 390x, 16 GB DDR3, 1050 Watt EVGA psu,

yeah

 

Thanks :)

With dual 390X's, will you do 4K? It would be a good option because it won't let your 9590 bottleneck :)

wait, the 9590 is NOT a bottleneck?

everyones telling me it is

 

ill get a 4k monitor when the prices start to come down,

or 3 monitor stretch

 

Get High-Quality Fish Tank, you sure you dont want your computer break apart

petco quality?

and how do i mount the mobo and stuff to the glass?

If you play at 4K it won't at all :)

 

My Xeons are at 2.8GHz, and they are from the i7-920 days. Even though they are super weak, I have yet to see bottlenecking on games such as FO4, GTA V, and MGSV :D

 

But at any other resolution, there will definitely be some bottlenecking :(

whys that so, should t that stress the cpu more than 1080p, causing the scores to go down instead of up?

 

i confuse

At 1080p, the GPU isn't that heavily worked so it requires a good CPU

 

At 4K, there is obviously sooo many pixels so the GPU is the most important, and the CPU has the pressure taken off of them :) not the most technical, but that's the basics I guess

 

 

 

(fun fact, I get more FPS with 4K CSGO than running CS:GO at 1920x1440 lol...)

gotcha

 

what if i do like 3 1440 p monitors?

can i game off that at steady 60fps?

If you turn down the settings, probably 

 

also depends on the game

 

 

 

I'd still prefer maxed 1080x3 than turned down 1440x3 (and it's cheaper) but that decision is up to you :)

For the tank part of the build glass fish tanks are good, 10 gallons may be a bit large since the cost of oil, but is more than enough for a system. For things seals as you know not to use rubber ideally it's best to replace them with silicone based orings.

For mounting you would need to make something or modify a part like joseph has linked there to be modular from the glass tank where you can take everything out of the oil for whenever you need to maintenance it. Also if you can get a cover or top for the tank it would be highly recommended to prevent dust and debris from getting in the oil.

 

As for the seals almost all watercooling stuff is rubber based o-rings, so getting some silicone based ones say from McmasterCarr would be a good option.

ima do simple fans in oil, no rads

what i was talking about was the seal between two pieces of glass, like the corners

I was looking at tanks like these

Oh the seals on glass tanks are all silicone based, so you have nothing to worry about. 

 

 

 

What about it exactly?

That's an acrylic tank with an acrylic plate/tray they mounted the system onto.

is it possible for me to do that?

or 3d print some parts?

For the acrylic tank, yes it's doable but does require a fair bit of work to glue acrylic sheets together and make it watertight, you would need a solvent glue like Weldon40 to do that. I probably wouldn't recommend 3D printed parts since they are preamble and depending on the plastic not sure how well it will react the the oil over time.

As long as it's strong enough and doesn't sag from the weight that should be fine, might be cheaper to get a thicker sheet of acrylic though since 3D printer filament is a bit on the pricey side.
