Post your guts. Also for all you insanely clean guts people. How long does it take to clean your case to the point where it looks so picture perfect? I can't bring myself to wipe down every dust filled crevice, just the important bits.

Piss cooling?

>> No.54893723

Canned air is for bitches. Get yourself an air compressor and a small spray nozzle. You can get a decent one for like $100. It's overkill for dusting out a computer, but it's a one time purchase. You will never buy a can of air again. Plus, after you have a compressor, you can get air tools to hook up to it for whatever other projects you wind up taking on.

To the anon I keep missing:
The pump isn't "mounted," really. It's wedge between the case floor and GPU. It's a tight fit. Also, to reduce vibration noise, I've placed acoustic/sound dampening foam on the bottom of the pump (foam side up, touching the pump) and between the pump top and GPU. (Foam side down, touching the top of the pump.) Between that, and the tubes being relatively strong and short, it doesn't really allow the pump much movement. I should check one of these days to see if it's causing the pump to run extra hot, as the HDD does get a bit warm. But, both objects are directly under the GPU with no direct ventilation, and some reviews on NewEgg say the HDD runs around 55C anyways so. It could just be the HDD causing the thermal issue on it's own.

It doesn't take long, just some dusting and clean wire management. Not using flash helps, too.

Never noticed until now that the motherboard tray is grilled like that. Is it sturdy? It looks cool.

Not at all. I have no idea why Zalman punched holes into it, it is just pointless. It does nothing and makes the tray weak as fuck.

They justify it by saying it helps cool the motherboard

Nah, you're entitled to your opinion. I've been burned by AMD's big promises so often that I just can't be excited for them anymore. If they manage to come out with something legitimately better than the competition, I'll buy their products (CPU or GPU) again, but the for years they've been playing second fiddle. The only argument they've had to fall back on is "It's better value!" I don't really care about which one is a better value, I just care about which one is better.

If you're open to suggestions, rotate the fans on the front radiator. Turn them so that the corner with the cable coming out of it is on the side facing the back panel. The cables will be much easier to hide that way.

>> No.54903891

Yeah, its really bugging me that I hadn't considered this when I was building it.
My only problem with that is I'd have to undo the whole radiator and hope I can get the right angle with the slack I've got to be able to do that.
I probably will end up doing it, but I've just spent the last two nights building it all, doing the cleaning, flushing it out five times and then filling it up properly. Still haven't tidied up my flat from all the crap strewn about everywhere from where I was getting this out and that out of stuff.

So yeah, advice noted and I definitely agree. Its just a matter of when, not if, really.

>> No.54903957

>I'd have to undo the whole radiator
Not really. Going on your work in progress stuff the other day and looking at that zip tie around the tilted res, your pump and res still aren't hard mounted down. If you cut the zip tie off, you'll have slack to move it away from the radiator and get access to the screws holding the fans down. Even if you had a case panel between your fans and your rad like I do on my top rad, all you'd have to do is undo one fan at a time, rotate it, put it back in, and go to the next one.

It's not that which is the issue, its the other radiator. The top right screw for the uppermost fan is directly facing the fitting for the other rad.

You're clearly misinformed about the kind of air compressor you can get for $100. If you can't bring the compressor to the computer, you're going too big.

>> No.54918095

That's retarded. You DO NOT HAVE TO PUT A RADIATOR IN BETWEEN COMPONENTS. Go with what gives you the shortest tubing runs and put those front fans on fucking intake. It's not going to raise your case temp by any noticeable amount. Intake at the bottom and front, exhaust at the top and back. Res to pump to front rad to GPUs to mobo or CPU, whichever ends up being cleanest, then to the other one, then the top rad, and back to the res.
