Default Re: TiKi RIG DOWN!!!

Mine did the same thing the first day I used it. The high setting was way too loud for my tastes anyway and the low setting load performance is flat out unacceptable to me. I am just happy Shentech gave me a full refund.

I'd recommend air, water or phase. Most overclockers do not hold TECs in high regard. They have serious problems trying to tame 1.5v and up often only equal aftermarket air cooling under those conditions. You may poke around XS to verify what I am saying. I am a live and let live guy though, if you like the product, use it.

Anybody got any recommendations for a WC setup for a Stacker 832? Right now I'm just interested in CPU cooling, and maybe GPU cooling at a later date. I'd love to hit 3.4 or 3.6 with my CPU (I know it will do with 1.6v, which is well beyond anything an air cooler can handle).

Well I have some interesting news fellas. Apparently a new CoolIT Product will be coming out later this year that can take a 300 Watt Capacity. Where as the Freezone can only take 175 Watts. As many of you know the QX6700 already starts at 130 Watts so any overclocking around 3.4-3.5GHz is impossible with the Freezone. This new product I learned about by calling CoolIT myself. 300 Watts FTW!

Default Re: TiKi RIG DOWN!!!

I would like to test Tiki's rig with the following.

Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with a 89CFM Aerocool 120mm fan.
Have the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme facing up towards the 2 120mm case exhaust fans.
Have the rear 120mm with filter blowing inward at the cpu.

2 120mm fans blowing in, 2 120mm fans blowing out. I would like to see what temps this would produce.

One thing I don't like about those handy-dandy H2O systems that slide nicely it pretty much any case is the radiator. They are never big enough and the extra heat will kill a pump quick.

If you are going to go custom Tiki, you already have the cpu-block, the rest of the parts you can get anywhere. My original water cooling system on my Athlon 3000xp was a Danger Den cpu block with a water pump (1300+gal/hour) I bought at the local pet store for $70, the radiator came from a junk-yard(believe it or not!!...I think it was for tranmissions on big trucks) for $10 and then $20 worth of clamps and tubing from the local hardware store.

wait, hold up, I don't understand what you just said in your first statement. Are you saying that the radiator in those kits we suggested will be inadequate to cool his system if it is mounted inside his case and that the pump will die?

I have almost the same exact kit inside of the same case as Tiki and it works great

maybe I misunderstood you.

This just isn't true at all. There have been tons of tests done to show that radiators can disperse more heat wattage than a lot of high-end systems will ever put out.

How do you explain those of us getting such low temps with our components if this is the case? If the radiator wasn't capable of dispersing enough heat then everything in the case would be overheating.

I think TiKi that you need to build a new system from scratch

LOL, no. The radiators that come with those systems are fine, just a bit small for my taste and, a good portion of the time that a pump fails, is because of some problem wit the radiator causing more heat than the pump parts can handle. I've seen twice where after an H2O system was moved to another computer the fins(or what ever you call the things inside) got dented and with in a week the pump went out.
