    Question Sufficient cooling for HDD in Phanteks Eclipse P300A?

    Hi. I'm considering getting a Phanteks Eclipse P300A (http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P300A.html) for my next build. One thing I'm concerned about - I do intend to populate the 2 bottom trays with 3.5" HDDs. However, it seems there is no fan sending air in their direction, leading to...

    Noiseless cooling system for AMD TR

    I'm in the process of changing my system, and I'm focused on AMD TR systems. The important thing is that the whole system is as quiet as possible, taking into account that the system will be a non-gaming workstation (so I would exclude the possibility of overclocking). I'm trying to get an idea...

    Dual Pump Manifold Configuration?

    Has anyone experimented with having two separate D5 or DDC pumps manifolded together, so that if one pump were to fail the other could still operate? I realize that there would likely have to be two bypass lines with ball valves so that coolant wouldn't need to flow through a pump that were...

    cooling to counteract Virtualbox video streaming

    Many cable-tv websites (e.g. cox.com, hbo.com) do not support any linux os. As a workaround, I installed Windows 7 Pro in a Fedora 26 Virtualbox. When I maxout the Virtualbox settings (based on my hardware), I have Virtualbox-allocated 4 core to the Virtualbox-cpu, 20gb ram, and 128mb video...

    Input on a high-end gaming rig

    Hello builders and enthusiasts, I'm designing my new rig for the end of 2017 - early middle 2018. It's the first time for me to build a system from scratch.

    Retired my 10 year old pump and...

    found this to be a little bizarre. This is the original Swiftech Apogee drive, as part of the much older H20-120 kit that I purchased back in 2007 or 2008. Below is what it looked like new. and this is what it looks like upon removing the tubing! the inlet and outlet are all eroded and...

    Best Case with 3x120mm Intake Fans?

    I am looking for a new ATX case, but the number of products available seems to be overwhelming. I'm a bit lost. I'm looking for a case with the following features: - Subtle tower design (no crazy polygons, spikes, tons of glass, whatever) - Stock 3 front intake fans, or at least possible to do...

    New to the forums... (NZXT S340, Karken X62, Kraken X31)

    Hello all, I'm Chip, and it's been a really long time since I've built myself a computer. I recently put one together and decided to house it in a NZXT S340. I could not be happier with the case. Easy to build in, great looking and massive inside. Anyhow, I've been trying to decide on an AIO...

    How to Clean Light Algal Buildup?

    So, I either didn't put in enough biocide, or some natural light was hitting a tube somewhere over the course of the last 8 months, but I recently noticed some light green buildup on the inside of my water-cooling hardware. I won't be able to completely tear down the system for at least another...

    Rebuilding Older 12V DDC Pump

    Has anyone successfully rebuilt or reconditioned a DDC style pump? I was going to chuck one of the units I had lying around, left over from a highly flawed AIO system. I think it started to get loud until it eventually seized up and I nearly cooked my six core legacy i7 a few years ago. I am...

    Use of Copper Pipes in Loop

    I think I've seen this done before, but is there any downside to using straight rigid copper runs for a section of a custom water loop? I have some straight pipes and fittings left over from when I replaced the plumbing to the wet bar upstairs and I can just solder up a NPT adapter no problem...

    Dell Motherboard CPU Fan Header Question

    I upgraded the processor in my work computer at the office but I totally spaced the proprietary CPU_FAN header on the motherboard. I would prefer not to use the stock cooler as it's small, ugly, and probably mostly useless. It also has a rough aluminum base instead of copper and they used cheap...

    Cloudy Coolant

    Swiftech's HydrX coolant with distilled water is the only stuff I've ever used in my loops since '08 and I've never really had any issues... except the custom setup that caters to the 4790k is not behaving. I first filled it maybe 10 or 11 months ago but the machine doesn't see too much use. It...
