Yeah, I hope that some reviews may come out before they ship the unit.
If it's complete trash one may be able to cancel the order.
But my hopes are high. Predator was a bit of a flop, however also a more complex unit and with more features.
So hopefully the "simple" design of an AIO is possible...
I hope that EKWB knows what they are doing by allowing the pump to run at only ~450 rpm.
Even the 360 mm variant is stated with a low 450 rpm, which is much more restrictive than the 120 mm.
So I have pre-ordered the EKWB 120 mm in the hopes that the low RPM at idle and bigger pump/propeller...
Not a stupid answer :-), And thanks for the numbers, seems the eisbaer is a fine enough unit?
Also has the possibility to scale up, perhaps a 240mm and include GFX.
The upcoming EKWB AIO is PWM controlled and should do 450 rpm at the lowest, which is quite lower than both the Asetek and Eisbaer...
So I'm designing a new sandwich case with 3D printed parts and laser cut panels making it cheap and "possible/easy" for all to create.
Right now I'm debating with my self what AIO cooler I should go for as the design leaves for a large unused space, perfect for an AIO ;-)
For my system...
This have been up a few times in your threads; 3 min is not near enough time to get to a steady state situation as Allhopeforhumanity shows and therefore it only "seems as powerful as a 240 aio" since you only see the effect of heat uptake by the water and not how well it dissipate heat.
Yea, so currently no NVlink cables as far as I know.
They seems to be different pin density than normal PCI-e slots, and the micro chip on them might be for some conformation of "true" brigde.
(or just LED control)
So longer flexible NVlink cables might not be that possible :-(
If this is for small portable system I would consider this instead:
A thin ITX case with support for a LP53 cooler with the PCI-e slot left open to the outside (case dimensions down toward 17,5 x 17,5 x 7 cm (or less with a 14mm thick fan)).
Then a Pico PSU with either a small HDplex PSU inside...
Risers does open up possibilities, however, how much room do you currently have between cards and PSU?
If I needed to have multiple cards in close proximity in such a small case, they would be water cooled (or the core would with AIO).
I rather see the GFX being water cooled than the CPU as for...
Is 14.6 cm the internal width?
Seems like you could just have the GFX normally slotted into the motherboard as such (I know 15.0 cm makes it possible (can't remember the internal width of the below build), and with some good bends on custom thin cables it should be possible with 14.6 cm (with...
So other aspects of life happened which meant pausing this thread and build a bit.
But here is a short update; cables have been changed and it looks great.
Nice images with a good camera will come soon :)
I also wanted to update you on the performance of the Dynatron R15 vs Cooltek LP53.
Did find that as well.
It refers to an article from 2002:
I would think that a thing or two have happened on the vapor chamber front in 16 years? I may be wrong.
If the chambers have become better the curves are shifted downwards = thicker copper...
You still haven't answered my questions?
1) What water cooler is it you believe that your cooler will be able to perform similarly to?
2) Link to the article or site that have the phase change vs copper data that you show.
3) What are the copper thickness at the three sites showed in earlier...
Most of the new "create a better internal look" parts have arrived.
Will update soon :)
That is great to hear :thumb:
Can you disclose rough dimensions of the merger?
My thoughts exactly for creating this design XD
Fewer people are using SLI/Crossfire in gaming rigs. Other main PCI-e aspect...
