    [Project Log] Wife said, 'Get rid of that nasty computer case' desk pc

    now that I have moved house and got things a little settled. I spent the xmas break doing the desk build. I am happy to report that I have now completed the build. A full gallery of the pictures can be seen here. Unfortunately I had a bit of a mix up with my web hosting solutions so have...

    adding an extra LED to an LED strip

    Pretty much what I expected at this point. Moving house right now so everything is in boxes. The controller I have at the moment is usb, so 5v. The 5mm led is four pin 3 anodes and a common cathode. So I'm off to a good start

    adding an extra LED to an LED strip

    I have a d5-photon-270-reservoirpump-combo. it has a hole for a 5mm LED. It came with a boring one colour LED which obviously my first thought was to swap it for a nice RGB one. In my build I already have a 5050 RGB LED strip in my case and I was considering connecting this new LED to the...

    NVIDIA Announces The New Titan X

    I never saw a hint of the board on that promo video. I think it was all just shots of the cooler.... after the 1060 not having SLI. That was the first thing I was looking for

    so with the USB port issue still rolling around my head I decided to crack on with another portion of the desk computer, the front fascia. After measuring up the size of the rad I cut out a new drawer front The rad has to be mounted slightly off centre as the chambers for the inlet and outlet...

    Thanks. That type of cable was my first find and I was going to screw it to the plate but, on reflection, I liked the cleaner look on the front portion of the plate. I've already found a slight variation on the cable posted in your link here. My thoughts now are to get some square nuts or...

    taking advantage of the long summer evenings I have surged on with preparing parts. I got these sexy lian-li fan grills which proved quite hard to find in stock anywhere. I love the honeycombesque mesh and the rounded edges. But I could not find any templates for cutting holes for them and the...

    a flurry of activity recently. I started work on the top section that would house my exhaust vents, fan controller, power button and USB ports. I cut the rough design but have left the back long so that I can bend and trim it later. I started withe the hole for the 5.25 fan controller The edges...

    I found a great site for getting pre-cut shet acrylic and other materials plasticsheets.com. Great site with lots of customisations on the order form: at 10mm thick I'm told that this sheet may be bullet proof!! not going to try it though :)

    still tweaking the design so no real life photos yet. Itching to get started on this but, as with all projects, get things right before you pick up the tools. The top section had to be a window as this was one of the main features of the desk build (plus the boss wants to see lights), but along...

    Where are the pretty pci-e extensions

    guess I'll be buying two ugly ones then, in case I ruin the first one when I add braiding to it. thanks for the info. Kind of makes me want to do a poll now to see how many modders would be interested in this product.

    Where are the pretty pci-e extensions

    For the first time I am considering adding a pci-e extension to my build (for a good reason) but there do not seem to be any on the market that are anything but plain old ugly. In this day and age of braided, coloured, uv active cables, has no one started selling aesthetically pleasing pci-e...

    I considered this for a while, but when tested in the mock up several new problems came up. Simply shifting the mobo right until it touches the mounts for the res did not give enough clearance for cables running into the I/O, putting a lot of stress on them. I thought about raising the res and...

    My faithful akasa server case has served me well for a long time, but now the time has come to move on. My wife hates the size of the case and has seen how little of the space inside is utilised so tasked me with downsizing. I took the opportunity to suggest 'getting rid of the case entirely'...

    Looking for some short pci gpu extension cables

    just need to clarify, you are really talking about 'pci' not 'pci-e'. I'm going to assume 'pci-e' otherwise I'll have to ask what you are doing with pci in the 21st century :) . Also I am going to assume you are talking about PSU extension (although never seen a 6 pin pci-e slot). From your...

    Corsair Shrinks PSUs With New SFX SF600 And SF450

    one thing I would have like to have seen is the rpm vs. temp profile for the fan or some CFM data (that fan doesn't quite look like a static pressure model, but mmH20 numbers would be fine too). I would like to see how fast they spin that 90mm fan so I can gauge if ripping it off and replacing...

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    I'm interested to know what reservoir that is, did it come with the vertical mounting bracket or did you get that separately/make it? also, what model of fan is that? and the model of rad too please. I may be wrong, but it looks like you have the 240 fans pulling into the case and the 360 fans...

    taking the fan off of a psu

    I had not seen this article, thanks. Once again, like 'HD Ready', 'Samsung SUHD' and so many other stickers slapped on to products, it seems these are just there to dazzle and entice rather than serve any pure purpose, thanks. I took a moment to try out some PSU calculators and most of the...

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    thanks for sharing your experience. I myself have never been tempted by the coolers that leave the stock fan doing the other bits on the card. I would say if you are going to spend the money on getting water cooling for the GPU it is only a little stretch to get a full card block. So looks like...

    taking the fan off of a psu

    people, come on! Can we drop the scare stories about caps killing people. Electrical equipment is dangerous and you should never attempt repairs or mods unless you know what you are dealing with. Message: Never work on energised electrical equipment! But to address the points made in this...

    taking the fan off of a psu

    I did look at these, but it is clear I am going to have to nail down some of the hardware first before I can commit. I estimated a bare minimum of 600w for the system including all the fans, water pump, etc. So, much to my dismay, this ruled out those fanless psu's. this is an interesting...

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    This is true, I keep forgetting just how much of a difference in cooling there is between stock air coolers and even the cheapest water cooling..... I can't remember the last time I actually used an air cooler. I guess my perspective is somewhat skewed.

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    That just increases the question of how they manage to produce an oc'd 980ti with one, thin, cheaply made, 120mm rad. That doesn't just completely suck!

    taking the fan off of a psu

    The sentiment wasn't lost. Personal safety will not be sacrificed. Thank you for the concern. streiw, thanks for the tip on the seasonic psu's I'll check them out. I was also looking at the corsair 'zero fan' models. I have never purchased a psu based on its noise levels before now.

    taking the fan off of a psu

    yeah forgot to mention the pcie riser. airflow would be terrible with the card vertical p.s. since when have the good ideas been safe :) that's how we ended up with over-clocking and water-cooling in the first place :cool: I'm thinking about ducting now :)

    taking the fan off of a psu

    I'm thinking of a new build. But want to sanity check what I am thinking of doing. I have done a quick mock up for illustration, below. Imagine that there are some waterblocks on the gpu and cpu and soft tubing connecting them (I'm not a sketchup whizz :) ) Contents: 2 x 240mm rads 1 x...

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    These are all good points. To summarise the delta on an aio is almost always going to be a lot higher than a custom loop. Materials will have been cut back to within millimeters of running too hot and will be much noisier due to cheaper fans. Thanks I'm still going to go the custom loop...

    the decreasing need for huge radiators

    I was browsing the interweb when I saw this article on another site about the gigabyte-geforce-gtx-980-ti-xtreme-gaming-waterforce. This is a watercooled, OC'd card out of the box but that 120mm rad looks like a slim one!! So this is causing me to rethink my stand point on water cooling...
