Looks like a train . Realy curious to see it completed.
I'm glad it appears to work well so far! was thinking about doing something similar to the 160 watt version, but it doesn't appear to disassemble so nicely.
Thanks, I'm glad as well
That 10mm Noiseblocker 40mm fan (XM-2 model) is fairly noisy though, course I'm sure that has a good amount to do with it being inside the enclosure and no vibration damping at all. The 20mm Noiseblocker (PM-1 model) is dead silent tho, I could barely hear it with my ear right up next to it. Same goes for those Noctua fans I got so I'm looking forward to trying out version 6 with the two 20mm fans.
And yeah, the 160w version actually looks like it's a complete 'tube' of the aluminum extrusion with only the ends that could possibly come off. Not to mention since it's smaller the 40mm fans won't fit with it as well. Would be interesting tho
so are you able to get it up to or near 400W peaks without issues now that it has active cooling?
Temp sensor showed 58C after 30 mins of superposition (I estimate avg. 250-275w load at the wall). Temp sensor was positioned on the top center of the unit between the vents. No issues
That sucks, maybe check the connection on that white 3-pin Molex connector in between the unit and the AC plug. It was snapped close but the pins weren't seated. One of the pins was loose. After pushing the wires in on both sides of the connector it worked.
Edit: Oh it sounds like your problem is just with the Dc-ATX not powering on? No idea, except there were some issues with the cables having the wrong connector on CPU.
I can do PCB work in eagle if you wind up needing a smaller footprintThe one with the enclosure is basically gigantic and the other new one isn't that small either so I know that my favorite option will likely be the smallest of the three but we shall see I guess lol.
Thanks, I'll see what I can work out and keep you postedI can do PCB work in eagle if you wind up needing a smaller footprint
Woah, that thing looks interesting!Finally another mini update!
I've got the card in hand to do the load testing with now
It is a quite power hungry card so I should have no issues hitting the 400w (and above) mark. The only thing is I have to dig out some DVI to HDMI adapter to even use the ancient thing
Hoping to get it running tonight but we'll see.
Yeah, it's an ancient GTX 690 dual-gpu card from 2012Woah, that thing looks interesting!
