OK, so I just finished putting together the test bench that I had in my sig. Video card is not correct in the signature as I always switch out the hardware and right now I'm just running a reference GTX 650 Ti.
I'm in the province now, surrounded with bananas, mosquitos and cicadas LOL. Good thing internet can reach me X__X
I really like the antec kuhler gpu mod.. looking forward in doing that when I get back home from this vacation :)
internet was taking so long to post my reply, didn't see peter's post..
WOW!! nice test bench build!!
there are no test bench cases here in my country as well as lan-party size cases so that's really a candy to my eye
That's an epic test bench there peti! I would LOVE to have something half as awesome as that for work!
Holy crap that's a nice test bench! I thought it was some new crazy design for a PC, just an open air showoff thing for displaying just as you did there, not for testing. it looks like something you'd leave setup for use as is...
Here's my rig, I call it RGB Panda. I'm a photographer and I needed a photoshop/editing rig and I fell in love with NZXT's Phantom 410. Seeing as how my work is color oriented and colors (at least digitally displayed colors) are made from RGB pixels, I ran with that idea.
I wanted I a clean simple black/white theme build with colorful lighting. I achieved that with NZXT's Hue controller and RGB LED tape, Geil Black Dragon ram with red LED lights, and an extra NZXT blue LED fan up top (somewhat custom, these are not sold separately so I found one used). When I have the Hue controller set to green I have a nice Red ram, Blue top fans, and finally Green case lighting, completing the color scheme coming from my rig. I do like changing its colors but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I hope you think the same!
I JUST finished the wire tucking and removed the hard drive bay, installed extra fans and I had some decals I figured I would find a place for. Here are some images:
Dude, that's an amazing Test bench. I am particularly in love with the test bench !.. I don't know how i couldn't know that AeroCool had an test bench case !.. Seems way better than benches that are ridiculously expensive :|
Anyways, thanks for folding.
the shroud is needed to help move air to the heatsink and push it out to the back,without it, it's just a fan that go nowhere. the top card only reach 76c where outside temp 50f , my other folding rig's gtx 285 reach 82c with open case
Always wanted to try out water-cooling, so instead of upgrading I chose to spend the money on water cooling parts. The drop in noise and low temps made it well worth it.
Uhhh, GPU and CPU on single 120 rad? Hope your temps aren't bad.
Some nice looking rigs coming along.
I got to build my buddies this weekend, or tomorrow whenever parts come in before thanks giving, nothing special since he couldnt afford much.
