So it that time of year again when I need another project to keep the tinkering demons at bay. So I have come up with another project although it doesn;t really involve any major component changes. I am not sure if I will even get round to doing it due to work commitments but I have been considering this for a while and it seems like a good time to get things rolling. I am not sure how long this will even take me to do. So let's get started. To celebrate my enthusiasm for the upcoming battlefield game or just looking for a good excuse to tinker I have decided to watercool my pc using hardline tubing hence the project name. Since my last build I have swapped cases in anticpation but overlooked one major flaw. I have switched from the corsair 760t to a Phanteks evolv atx glass edition. Biggest thing you notice is that it is much smaller than all my previous cases and even more so the internals. It so small I am probably going to have the mod the case slightly to accomodate the components. I will go into more detail. There are actually two parts to the project as the latter part is one I really want to do but I can;t bring my self to do it. I have the funds set aside for two titan X pascal+watercooling for it. While the price is obviously a big hurdle it just doesn;t sit well with me suspecting a 1080 ti will come out more affordable and just as quick. But anyways we shall see. The way I have decided to do my watercooling setup is just initially use 2x360mm radiators just for the cpu which sounds like overkill and to be perfectly honest it is. But I will be running the fans at low rpm. I am more about the more quieter side of the watercooling build rather than outright cooling performance. Also by putting most of the watercooling stuff in now I wont have to do it later. By using 2x 360mm radiators there is more surface area to dissipate heat therefore I can have the fans set at a lower speed. I am looking to run the fans at 700-800 rpm each. I will be using slimline radiators sue to the size of my internal case size. Also I have to swap out my seasonic power supply as well. I love the power supply besides one small and very annoying caveat. The hybrid fan mode kicks in at either 20% load or 25c internal psu temp. Which is problematic as my room is always hot. Put it this way in the coldest parts of winter I don;t even stick on the heating in my room. I don;t mind fan noise when I am gaming but when I am browsing hte web or just listening to music then it drives me crazy. So as much as I klove this power supply I will be swapping it for a corsair unit whihc is also made by seasonic but the fan doesn;t kick in until the psu is much hotter, As for the hardlining bit I really like the look of hardline based pc's but I am weary myself due to the fact hat I am not one of those people who are decent at DIY. Pics to follow as always if I get my ass round to doing this. if not then at least it has entertained you!
