This beast is gorgeous. An incredible amount of work has gone into this. I have to know though... what kind of temps are you seeing on the 2950X? I've been through two of these damn Enermax units and I'm done. Been looking at the XT45 and the Heatkiller block. Just wondering what kind of load temps I can expect to see.
No kidding. Luckily mine is dry as a bone, but it might be because I drained it and filled it with distilled and a biocide/corrosion inhibitor mix. I think they leak due to the crap fluid Enermax has been putting in them.
Thank you so much!
Thanks. Yeah, they might be cheap, but they sound pretty decent.
Thank you. I really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot. The mat is the Gamers Nexus large Mod Mat. I bought that table just to fit the mat. The crimper tool is the MDPC-X CTX3 crimper. I bought it from Mod-One. It's pricey for a crimper, but it's so worth it.
That was certainly the goal... but when I rebuild it, that got a little out hand.
Nice to see another Ghost S1 build.
Well, the Asus has the same layout as my MSi, you should have no problem with the offset adapter for clearance.
I used the offset type A/B. They're just mirrors of each other. I printed both in case I changed mobos and needed to change the direction.
Honestly, the ML fans are right up there with Noctua. Plus I wanted something that was illuminated for aesthetics... plus I had a couple sitting around.
Do you mean as a case fan or replace the Corsair fan on the heatsink?
Just wanted to let you know that I finally added thermals.
Thanks. I'll be doing some testing soon once I finish with another system I'm working on. I'll also be comparing it to the Intel box cooler as well as the L9i and with the stock fan on the copper C7 along with noise levels. I'll be posting all that info up.
Haha! I actually tossed some PC parts in a shoebox for a thumbnail picture as I'm making a build video for YouTube. I had trouble finding a shoe box that small.
Yeah, but considering the small operation the Loque is and the materials, it's to be expected. There are a lot of more affordable "shoebox" style cases though, like the Cougar QBX, Raijintek Ophion, Streacom DA2 and the NCASE M1.
The L9x65 was on the short list along with the L12. Ultimately what made me go with the C7 Cu was the ability to add a 120mm fan a cool the surrounding components better as well as have it be quieter. As an added benefit, it looks better than the other two options. The L9x65 certainly out performs the C7 Cu though. I still need to do thermal testing. Who knows, I might decide to change things up later.
True. Most of the stuff this small is pretty expensive due to development cost and materials. However, the Cougar QBX is a pretty inexpensive option. The Raijintek Ophion looks to be half the cost of the Ghost. There's also the Streacom DA2 but I hear it needs some more refinement. Lastly, there's the NCASE M1 which is under $200. There are some less expensive options out there for this style case.
Good luck, with whatever you go with.
Mine has power LED, HDD LED, power switch and reset switch. Case doesn't have any RGB features.
Yep, the entire ring around the power button lights up white.
I thought about doing SLI, but it would have been a waste with my slow monitor. Had to make a compromise for color accuracy. Shouldn't have to do that on the next one though.
It's kinda' old. It's an O'Sullivan corner desk I bought from Office Max in the early 2000's.
I just found it on Amazon. Here's the link to the one I bought. There's another one that's a mirror of this one.
