Water block fun: demonRed, the DIY water cooling setup
After showing of his water block making skills in this thread we are proud to present you with a full article on djivesp's DIY water cooling setup
"Guest writer djivesp shows us how he build a complete water cooling setup from scratch, using parts from his old Toyota, and making himself water blocks for CPU, northbridge and his NV6800LE, the last one features 3-barbs and packs quite a punch."
didn't knew djivesp was writing an article about his blocks, anyhow, nice article djivesp! :)
Certanly dont think its healthy at all to give a Mobile Barton 2.1 volts, in my head its allready fried :/ :D
I dont understand why you dident make it all in cupper, a bar big enough can be found at the local scrapyard, or be gought at for an example www.watercool.de in pieces
I certainly could have tried,
since copper is heavy and i live in the UK postage from anywhere would be high, and i would have needed quite a large bar,
before i started i did look into purchasing some, but minimum ordering quantities and sizes put me off, it would have worked out far too expensive.
+ i wanted to prove that Alu isnt as bad as everyone thinks, it works - maybe a few C's higher but when you take into consideration weight, price, and [at least here] availability, i think i've done OK :)
Said it already, but very nice rig :D .
Also, don't give a mobile 2,1v, that's too much. A desktop AMD might survive, but a mobile one is used to run at lower volts.
i don't think he was as serious about that 2.1 volts as you guys think, and besides, as far as i know, voltage itself can't hurt but you need enough cooling power for it not hurting your cpu
Ive heard of mobile 2500's running stable at 2.1V :P, its merely higher quality silicone, thats the only thing that sepatares the desktop and mobiles, as the ones that pass the 1.45V stability test off the production line get sold as the mobiles!
volt them till they smoke ! :grin:
i tried to run my 2400+ at 2.2 but anything higher than 2.11 and strange things start to happen ... :puke: (within reasonable temps too)
i think the A7N8X's have overvolt protection of some sort, as the FETS and caps are cooled sufficiently :/ ...
there is a point where increased voltage will no longer mean higher performance
~2v is the soft spot for most CPU's, some higher, some lower
#4 Thats why i mensioned the local srapyard, i found a piece for my mosfets for 20 Danish Kroner (2£) - i dident use the piece, but its big enough for two rather large CPU cooling heads...
It needs cleaning and some plane sandpaper but its possible to make a very fine head or two of it..
