'The Beast II'
Copied and pasted... too tired but thought you'd enjoy!

Well, I have been very busy the last week or so. I decided to build another system, based on the old system, those not familiar with the old, see HERE. Anyway, I don't have much commentary yet... you can see a build log HERE. The Clamshell top has 3 windows, and 2 fans on the top. I have not even dealt with that yet, that will happen tomorrow or this weekend.
Thermochill 120.3
Various fans - 6 Sanyo Denki 120mm's on the rad - Panaflo and Mechatronics round out the fannage.
Cascade SS
3 Laing D4's/Swiftech MCP650 in series
Tygon R-1000 Tubing, the softest, stickiest most bendable tubing I have ever used, blows R-3603 away IMO, but more $$$$
Mountain Mods U2 UFO Powdercoated Black
Various other stuff I can't even remember, lol.

Now for some pics:

Hmm, You seem to have a bad crush for those D4´s.
Damn, that´s a nice rig!

Whoa! Pretty. But, it looks incredibly noisy. Is it? I bet the water temps are very good.

AntiBling 08-05-2004 11:15 AM

All that to cool one processor? :shrug: The name is appropriate. Its nice looking though. Why does he need three pumps? I dont get it.

nikhsub1 08-05-2004 11:33 AM

Brian it is not as noisy as one would think...

AnitBling, yes, to cool one processor but to add a Vid in the future. I dont need 3 pumps I just need overkill. :D I considered 4, lol.

SlaterSpeed 08-05-2004 12:20 PM

When you get to 4 its about time to start thinking prommie! ;)

Very impressive (like usal) keep up the good work


AntiBling 08-05-2004 12:43 PM

Thats a YY cube, right?

No. aluminum powdercoated black.

Well, some final finished photos...

have fun bleeding that puppy? hahah

what do you think your pressure is?

Ahh bleeding was fun. But if you do it right, it is much easier. I first filled the rad as much as possible, then the pumps. Then I had to seal everything up and fill from the t line. You have to rotate the case to get the water to go down. Once there was enough to turn one pump on, i was good to go. I let it run an hour, got most of the bubbles out, then filled the t line half way or so, sealed it up and ran it for 48 hours straight. All air is gone. Have no clue on the pressure.

an interesting ad hoc pressure indicator is a piece of 10psi silicone tubing
when you over-pressurize it, it gets fat - the amount depending on the pressure

kinda scary when the 1/2" tube is 6" in dia and like a drum head though

infinity9 08-07-2004 01:15 AM

now thats some serious damn pressure. ive seen an air hose get parked on, thing was supposed to have a shutoff but i guess it was faulty. got fat for a few seconds and then blew one end off sending it flying into a customers car.

edit: btw just got my laing d4, been testing and bleeding. how bad do yours hum nik? is the swifty labeled one quieter? mine is a 7/04 d4 so i thought it was a muffled newer one. im super sensitive to higher noises though.

BillA 08-07-2004 09:00 AM

7/04 is muffled, from whoever
you are hearing the 4k peak, not so bad in a case with the psu fan

infinity9 08-07-2004 01:33 PM

i can hear the 4k two rooms away, think im part dog. i cant even hear the water really, just hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. how bad do you think it would cause it to heat up if I used some sound foam around it?

BillA 08-07-2004 02:28 PM

I doubt you can kill it, make a lined box with baffles - won't go around corners too well if dampened

snowwie 08-07-2004 02:45 PM

hehe, well, considering the recent euro vs american fiasco, I can't help but see the irony in your system

it epitomises (I suppose) the stereotypical american system, while (I think) it also epitomises the perfect example for why a typical euro system is maybe more desirable for many.

but to each his own of course

BillA 08-07-2004 03:42 PM

a single component's noise charateristics do probably not define the differences between types of systems

HammerSandwich 08-07-2004 04:06 PM

I think snowwie meant the combination of 3 D4s and 14 (!) case/rad fans

BillA 08-07-2004 04:09 PM

yes, clearly 'big iron'

nikhsub1 08-07-2004 04:57 PM

Yes big iron, I am a fan can't you tell? There is no substitute for brute strength. '70 Chevelle SS 454 LS6 ring any bells? I actually owned one in 1990, bought it for $8000, should have never sold it. Oh, right, this is a cooling forum :D My approach, as was my last setup, is definately exteme and that is how it was planned to be. King Kong of H20.

Sory for the hijack: my mistake And very good job nikhsub1

infinity9 08-08-2004 06:28 PM

wow major thread hijack :p

quicksilverXP 08-10-2004 12:41 AM

What was the purpose of that Ferm? Is it to show how good of temps you got with small tubing and low air flow? That's pretty damn good.

I just got the D4s dated 07/04, and while lower than the original D4, the sound is still loud. So loud, I'm planning to build some kind of box for it to silence it since the performance is so good and I'd rather keep it.
