    Project Muppet-II

    well the plan is to swap out my 8800GTX physics and GTX 280 for a pair of water cooled GTX480s.

    im ditching the dedicated physics being as though its never really used and the 480's seem to do a good enough job anyway !

    today i brought some additional water cooling kit, due to the koolance TMS-200 Software Thermal Interface Controller not being in stock anywhere and as a friends working in the USA for a couple of weeks i have had it all sent to his USA office so he can bring it back over.



    in addition to the TIC i have the optional daughter board so i can control and monitor 2 loops TMS-EB200 Expansion Board

    and so i know whats going off in said loops 2 flow meters and 2 inline temp sensors




    and of course a pair of these sexy bastards !



    even though the coolermaster cosmos i have is about the same size as the corsair 800D its time for a change so thats going and the 800D will take its place. at least i know it will fit

    apart from needing a pair of GTX480's to go under the blocks the rest of the kit thats in my pc specs on the left will be staying!

    more info as stuff arrives

    Re: Project Muppet-II

    I'm particularly looking forward to the bit where you take your old 8800GTX out of the system...

    I take it the flow meters / inline temp sensors are more of a nice to have than anything else? How do they feed information back - via a dedicated display, or just to the PC?

    Re: Project Muppet-II

    hardware interface that runs on windows

    http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=797

    and the add on card for a 2nd loop

    http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=798

    it will allow total control over both the pumps and 6 fans with 10 additional temp sensors

    even though my current rigs quiet i would like it to be even quieter when its doing desktop tasks and rev up the pumps and fans when games warm things up.

    Re: Project Muppet-II

    a few small pics of the build so far, im still waiting for the rad brackets to hold the 140.3 to the back of the case, the 120.3 is in and the loops complete for the cpu side of things, i drilled out the impingement plate on the CPU block by another 1mm to allow a little more flow through the loop as the chipset blocks took another 1.5lt per minute out of it, im getting 3.0 lt per min with the pump on full and 1.2-1.5 with it running the slowest setting of 8 volts, the CPU-350 block is a very restrictive block by design but it does work rather well, i may swap it out for the new CPU-360 at some stage, its very tempting!

    i do wonder what the flow rate of the GTX's will be, maybe i get to find out monday !

    at idle the temps do not change with the pump on full or minimum so thats a good thing, corsair fans on the ram are set to off until the ram hits 40 degrees C then they spin up to 40%

    i have had the controller card hooked to to the laptop for now, its a nice bit of kit as it stores the speed settings on board and does not need the software to keep it at the settings i pick, it powers up with everything full then slows everything down before the BIOS has finished posting, its so nice knowing my rig will be whisper quiet doing day to day tasks and rev up the pumps and fans as needed when i go gaming, it also shuts the system down if anything packs up/overheats with a software shutdown to start and a forced shutdown via a ATX jump wire just incase that fails!





    this plates made to fit the pa140.3 so i can use the noctua fans as i like the high pressure design of them and the fact they do not click at low speeds !

    Re: Project Muppet-II

    pic not showing up for me for some reason I had to pull the links from a quote to see them.

    Looks good.

    Quick word of warning, looks like you have the pump sitting on top of the psu/motherboard cell fan vent.
    As far as I'm aware that's the main and only route in to the motherboard cell for air so you really don't want to block that.

    EDIT:strangely now that I've manually looked at the images they now show up in the post.

    Re: Project Muppet-II

    there not sat on it, there bolted to the side panel with a 10mm gap to let the air hit the bottom of the pumps, the ddc 18w's get very warm without air on them, they will be lifted a little when its done but i need them low until the final pipes been fitted

    i am also expecting the gap under the last pci slot, the 2 former exhaust slots on the gtx's and the vent at the top of the case allows the additional air in. failing that the cover will be left off the drive bay fan and the fan turned round to server as another inlet. it does seem strange that there is only inlet but the additional holes in the case should help.

    the reason i mounted the pumps on the removable sata cover is the ability to slide the pumps out to get behind then i just need some thin rubber to remove the slight vibration the cover is causing.

    im going to add a thermal sensor in the case near the mobo to rev up that fan if it gets warm in there.

    Ahhh ok sounds good. just looked like it was sitting there.

    I'm probably just nitpicking because I'm jealous.

    Good luck with the build, anything you dont use send my way? For instance im sure you wont need the 140.3 so you can send that to me... .
