It doesn't look very sexy to me. Most of my computer area things are rectangular, so the cylinder clashes with them. It's also annoying because you can't put up a cylinder against a flat wall, so it's always "floating" in space.

i tried your method and compared it to mine and mine is better because it doesn't split 100% of 1 CPU, but it allows you to stress more cores (if you have them). so in my case, i can go all the way to full cpu stressing (800% - 8 virtual cores) using my method. if i use your method, i only get 100% total stressing, split over whatever number of threads of dd i launch... so i think you'll learn to appreciate my method if you have more than one logical CPU.

I really want to get one of the X7A Modules.
The design is quite similar (concerning airflow and shape), but it has a rather square base.

Considering how much you pay for the design factor, it is safe to say that the machines are still considerably cheap.

The new Mac Pro design is perfect for what Apple computers have become, attractive, disposable machines for those who want stability, easy setup, and minimal maintenance and are willing to pay a premium for it.

i hate apple as much as the next /g/ent but i truly feel this should be the future of semi-high end cases.

it's simplistic as fuck, incredibly designed, makes a fuck load of sense from a thermodynamics point of view, one big great fan is far superior to 6 small ones.
the only real drawback (and it's a fucking big one) is the whole mobo set up. the only other drawback from this design i can think of is that you can't take across your current components. but that's not really a drawback because all emerging tech has that problem.

you could have small versions with tri-mobo designs and then larger versions for quad-mobo set ups. also, water cooling this kind of set up would hugely reduce the size of the case

Unless they throttle that thing back to Pentium 4 performance, a single fan will need to spin fast to cool it. Spinning fast means more noise.

You don't seem to understand how aerodynamics and thermodynamics are related. You only need one big fan to spin slowly and it will move a lot of air efficiently through that specific space. The tighter the space, the easier it becomes to move the air through it.

>> No.34494421

>>34494310
the size of the container is irrelevant. Most of the space inside your desktop is just wasted.
What matters is surface area of the fan, the amount of air to be moved, how much resistance it has and how efficient the fan design is.

They're building a 3-4grand device around a specifically designed cooling concept. It's not going to be loud or they would have failed their primary objective.

You're retarded.

There is no 'two dual GPUs', just two GPUs, with TDP of 250w each.

So roughly 600w+ TDP with these two GPUs and the CPU (assuming it has a TDP of 90/130w, depending on what processor they go with.)
