  1. Hello.

    I'd very much like to hear how your cooling of the two 6970 worked out.

    Just joined so I can't pm.

    What should i do?

    The 6990 will still run warm, Its still got two GPU's that will produce heat, but you will have more room for extra airflow having only a single card. I tried and tried to get my pair of sandwiched 6970s to run cooler on a UD5 but no matter how many extra fans etc I tried It wouldnt happen. PhysX is nvidia only and from what I've read not many games support it, and those that do are hardly noticable.

    Unique watercooling build

    If you want to mount a 3x120 in the top and a 1x120 on the rear exhaust hole in a 932, you will lose at least one, if not two 5.25 bay as you'll have to run the fittings at the front of the case otherwise they wont fit. These are a couple of pics from my HAF-X which is very similar to the 932..
  5. Does it make any mention of the radiator(s) or fans used? That can give you an indication of how noisy it will be. Some radiators work best with high speed fans, others are fine with low speed. Lower speed generally means less noise. What are your ambient temperatures like over there? Being in the middle east I'd assume its pretty warm. Do you have aircon where the computer lives?
  6. 1. It all depends on how many of which fan have been used and what speed they are running at. 2. Its just as safe as an aircooled system if built correctly.

    Restart No System Disk

    I have the same problem with a 120gb agility 3.. Mine will blue screen then give that no system disk message if I hit reset, but if I power it down and back up again it boots normally. Its supposedly a firmware issue that is addressed by an update. You need to boot off another drive before you can apply the update though. I dont have another drive with any other OS and havent used linux in so long I wouldnt know where to start nowadays.

    Yeah caspian is fucking awesome!
  11. I want to see some eyefinity testing to see whether i'm gonna need a 3rd 6970. With a single 6970 @ 6060x1080 res at max beta settings im getting 26fps average, 22fps minimum outside when I tested it with fraps. Its still very playable at this frame rate. I was actually quite surprised at how low the FPS was considering how smooth it is. I would have guessed at least 35fps.
  12. Another update.. My fittings showed up today from Gammods. I needed to use two of the 7.5mm extensions for the 45s to clear the fan. Different angle. View from the front of the case. Roughly how everything is going to run. I've tried to plan it out to have as few bends as possible to elimate any kinks. I'm trying to use 45 and 90 degree fittings where possible. Coming from an Automotive & Aircon background, I'll trust compression fittings over barbs any day. So far the loop goes Res -> Quick Disconnect --> Parallel thru GPUs -> 3x120 Rad -> CPU -> 1x120 Rad -> Res. Got to get some decent hose cutters from work tomorrow to cut the tubing nice and square for the compression fittings and order some more 45 and 90 degree fittings. HOPEFULLY this should be the last lot of fittings I need.
  13. Personally I'm a fan of the Coolermaster HAF series cases. I own a HAF-922 and HAF-X.. Great build quality and reasonably priced.. Plenty of room for anything you want to put in them.. Good cable management options.. Good airflow.. tool-less installation - thumb screws for side panels and card slots, quick release hard drive holders etc etc..
  14. haha yeah they're pretty beastly fans, but the top panel covers them anyway. Unfortunately its not a completely new build, just a new case, the triple monitor setup, a second 6970 and water loop.
  15. Another small update.. I ended up buying another coolermaster megaflow fan to put in my HAF-922, and raided the 200mm job out of the top of it to use in the HAF-X. They arent the exact same model, but I couldnt find anything closer. Only differece I can notice is a different model number, and the one out of the 922 is rated at .28A and from the X is .30A.. so near enough is good enough. Both fans now mounted. I had to dig out a 1/4" spanner to do the screws up as I couldnt find a philips head screwdriver with a thin enough shaft to fit through the mouting legs. It was a pretty tight fit getting all the sleeved cables from the front panel past the fan and through the gap, and still getting the top to fit back on. I managed to get them all positioned nicely after a bit of swearing and mild persuation. Now I've found I need some G1/4" extensions with 45s to get the lines out of the top radiator without kinking the hose. I had to order them through GamMods as PCCG don't stock what I needed. I havent used GamMods yet, was a bit skeptical of ordering from there after looking at the state of their website.. half the images missing etc.. but others that have used them seem to have had a good run, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. More BF3 beta'ing while I wait for more fittings to arrive.
