Cooler

Post #1 by Arne Saknussemm » Fri Oct 17, 2014 3:32 pm

Just got some post :D

Image

Will be substituting these two for my current EK360s which are OK but not great and not the same quality by any means...

Will be leaving a 360 in the loop but no fans....just on the floor...for dunking in an ice bath...will bring temps down a bit but not to the point of condensation...humidity too high here.

Might set up open ice loop for GPU benching through a HWBOT edition block...but can't be bothered swapping CPU block every five minutes.

Whole bench is going out on the balcony on cold winter mornings this year...

Temps in the 30s here at the moment...it's middle of October ffs!

I'm going to put a row of Noctua NF-F12s on one side only....I have been experimenting with push pull and push on the 360s and can't tell the difference so I took a gamble and went for the extra width in the radiator (extra surface area) and running one set of fans...

If things turn out different for these radiators I'll get a set of http://www.amazon.es/Noctua-NF-F12-industrialPPC-2000-PWM-Ventilador/dp/B00KESSKVY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1413557771&sr=8-3&keywords=nf-f12 on each side and run them quiet for normal use and ramp them up for cold air benching on the balcony...

And they work well...69 degrees top core temp running RealBench at 4.4GHz at 26 degrees ambient :)

And I have the 360 dangling.....will put some fans on it too in the meantime but it's ready for the ice bath.....

Nice Arne! The ek rads indeed are not top notch quality. Got 480+360 in my 24/7 rig.

You need to get some QDC for benching VGA's. I run the VGA on the same loop as the MB/CPU. Just use QDC's and hooking up a VGA takes like 20sec.

Correct I use the Koolance QDC3 and I like them.

Idle here this morning with 24 ambient

Yes, twisted1 1Day, I need some QDCs but I was looking and I have 7/16"-5/8" tubing and fittings and have seen only 13mm-1/2" QDCs and don't want to change all my tubing and fittings.... :?

Koolance qdc3 is the way to go.

There are fittings with standard 1/4 thread on which you can use your own fittings on. Those should work :)

Nice Arne!

I have been using an Alphacool Monsta in my non benching rigg for almost 2 years and like you I am very happy with its performance!

Also used monsta's many times in builds, i think the performance is great, just have to make sure you clean 'em well before use. just got the one 420 monsta + 2 thinner ones, all that and just cooling cpu at the moment!!

Edit:oh my, dust and cobwebs :o

I really like mine...really get rid of some heat...running push only and they handle everything one CPU and one GPU can throw at them even at high ambient temps...cant wait to get them out on the balcony on a frosty morning..

They were also really clean...flushed them well of course but nothing in the loop....the EK 360s filled the res and loop with a white deposit even after flushing...needed serious cleaning and tubing replacing...

Here are the QDC's you need Arne, 1/4 ID thread so you can use any fitting you like on them.
