    Custom DB4 build

    Not sure I need to delid, it's stable... Did lose turbo though. CPU Package consuming roughly 52W.

    Custom DB4 build

    Offset -.100 and disabled turbo. Aida64 testing shows 70° @ 3.2GHz on 6 cores at 2.5hrs.

    Custom DB4 build

    Ish? I purchased 6mm straight heat pipes and bent them myself - I consumed most of the provided pipes, mostly practicing bends and such. I did use the aluminum blocks though; one large and one small for both the CPU and GPU.

    Custom DB4 build

    Began to experience throttling around an hour and forty five minutes in. I was running low on paste while installing the hdplex cpu cooler so I know for a fact there is a few degrees to be obtained there. I also did the first round with the lid tightened down. I have a feeling there is going...

    Custom DB4 build

    Update: Life got in the way and it took me a minute to get back to the build. Started stress testing a couple hours ago. Ran through Prime95 and switched over to Aida64, my numbers look a fair bit higher than yours though. What are the specs of your build? I get the Gigabyte 1050ti but can...

    Custom DB4 build

    Raiju: Yeah, I already have a bender tool, but the radius is larger than I want, so, I said screw it and bought a few DIY sintered pipes and a bender spring... I've got the PC mocked up how I want it but there's no way bending what was provided will get me where I want to go. So, now I wait -...

    Custom DB4 build

    I'll take you up on that, thank you... Is there a reason I couldn't stick a 13ga (2.2mm) copper shim between the aluminum sink and the outer plate? It seems to me that with some thermal epoxy holding it together, it could offer the benefit of a uniform flat conductive surface to interface...

    Custom DB4 build

    Chocolateburmese, I believe that is the point of the shims, yes. Raiju: The real question is how did you remove the rear of the SF450 chassis from the plastic plug/power switch? I'm about to take a Dremel to it.

    Custom DB4 build

    Raiju, Thanks for documenting the process, I'm about to start something similar myself. In fact, I just received my DB4 today. A couple of questions, if I may: What ohm resistor did you end up using on the power board to dim the LED? What thickness did you choose for the shims? I have a...
