White or black.

The elite looks sexy as fuck but comes in at $135 for black glass version and $150 for white. I find that slightly steep when the non elite comes under $100 here in Canada.

I paid less than €60 for the regular S340, when they came out. The Elite is more than double that, where I live.
If I were you I'd bet on the Elite, given that slight price bump compared to the regular one.

Anyway, go for the color that goes best with your setup. The white one looks amazing with white boards, tho. The black one is more neutral and gives you room to play around with whatever colour scheme you want.

OP here. I had the original S340 right after it came out and was right with you as one of the "original" builders. It's a great bang for your buck case. This one is the S340 Elite that I upgraded to not too long ago and it's made some pretty minor but nice improvements over the standard S340.

I'm not a fan of the camouflage pattern, but I wanted a white board to go with the color scheme. This was, at the time, my only option.

Why do people think that? I change my fluid and tubes once every two years, open up the blocks while I've got it apart for inspection, and ONCE I've had to top up the reservoir. It's not that much extra maintenance at all.

Yeah it was a pleasure to build in... definitely made me sit and think a few times. The HDD isn't really mounted though its held in place pretty snugly between the gpu and the from fascia. I had to cut a little tab from the bottom of the slot long gpus fit through in order to fit the drive in there. I'm thinking about sitting it on top of the radiator where the stock drive tray goes but without the tray b/c it wont fit with the cables for the ssds in the way.

You think loop order matters, yet you think you're qualified to judge anyone's loop? In a properly built loop, the water is flowing fast enough that it doesn't heat up significantly at each block. It would have to go around the loop multiple times to begin heating up, but at that point it's also been through the radiators just as many times. Loop order DOES. NOT. FUCKING. MATTER.

I think that /guts/ is the best thread to ask.

I dont understand, what is the problem with my CPU cooler. I will probably get better one anyway, possibly NH-U12S (unless you will convince me not to), but I just wanted to know. Right now, I use SilentiumPC Fera 3, model that was supposed to be on level of famous CM 212 Evo.

CPU in question is i7-6700k (stock freq and voltages), with GA-Z170-HD3P motherboard. During heavy use, it easily reach 85C and even 90C, which is probably too much.

At first I thought I applied the paste the wrong way, but when I removed radiator, it looked like it was spread evenly. Funny enough, I expected it to be hard to remove, but paste went off easily by just dry swab. So I applied small dot on the middle and pressed it.

I ran some CPU heavy software and while temperature could reach 85C again, both air flowing off and radiator itself (yes, I checked) were rather cool.

How should I interpret that? Does it mean that the problem is with heat draining from CPU to radiator?

Custom loops are only unsafe during assembly and maybe the first couple days while the loop is settling. once all the pressure is leveled out, the air bubbles are bled and the o-rings are fully seated, you either do or do not have a leak. generally speaking, you'd want to replace the fluid at least once a year. the drain process is super simple and safe if you include a drain valve down low and utilize a bleed valve up top.
refilling the loop is only dangerous if you refuse to use a funnel, or if you have shaky hands. if you use a dissimilar fluid, and don't rinse the loop, you may run into some bacterial growth but all of these are easily avoidable with correct maintenance. 20mins/year. additionally, non-conductive fluid kind of eliminates the actual damage from a leak, but you still have to clean it up & replace a fitting.

AIOs generally have a life expectancy of 2-6 years, depending on model. Asetek's patents allow for pretty reliable operation. I have had 1 Asetek AIO fail out of the 3 I've purchased. It lasted about 3 years with heavy use. Mine didn't leak, but the fluid coagulated and siezed the pump.

custom loops offer the widest range of performance of any cooler setup available, but to reap the benefits, you have to go pretty balls deep. More radiators and tubing and fittings equate to better (allbeit diminishing) overall results. It can be very expensive to do this.

AIOs offer generally better OC ceilings than comparably priced air coolers, but at the cost of a little higher volume and in some cases, reduced compatibility.

> once all the pressure is leveled out, the air bubbles are bled and the o-rings are fully seated, you either do or do not have a leak

Makes sense. Can I go through this process without actually fitting the blocks to the computer components? As in, run the pump and circulate the fluid without the system being actually mounted on the computer. This way, if there are any leaks, it won't affect the system.

>air bubbles
>o-rings seating

I'm not quite sure how these things affect the safety of the system.

I suppose if components are exposed to higher pressures than they're designed to withstand, it can provoke leaks or failures in general. Shouldn't pressure levels be predictable though? Is the pressure higher at first and levels out with time?

Why exactly are air bubbles bad in this context? How to ensure there are none?

I'm not sure what o-ring seating means.

>rinse the loop

I suppose this means taking out all the fluid and then replacing it with all-new liquid, is that correct?

>bacterial growth

That can't be good. These hellish things produce all kinds of chemicals

> you have to go pretty balls deep

I asked in the stupid questions thread about a custom loop idea where the radiator isn't inside my room. Can you please give your thoughts:


>> No.57466014

>can i go through this process without actually fitting the blocks to the computer components?
yes. most people would recommend you test the pump externally. you are welcome to attempt to measure out and build the loop outside the case, but installing the finished product becomes substantially more difficult. for a first attempt, this may be worth the extra time & effort.

>why exactly are air bubbles bad in this context?
air bubbles prevent the flow of fluid, and thusly limit the thermal energy transfer potential. ideally, the loop would only have air at the top of the reservoir, where it sits idly out of the way. think of a bubble in a tube as a broken down car on a 3-lane freeway. Sure, cars can still pass, but EVERYONE gets slowed down by it, thereby reducing the efficiency of the freeway.

>how to ensure there are none?
it's highly unlikely you'll ever completely eradicate bubbles from the radiator unless you were to fill it by submerging the entire loop, shaking it, spinning it, and letting the air leak out naturally. this is, for obvious reasons, impractical. once the loop is installed, the most common practical method to mitigating bubbles is to rock the case back and forth until the vast majority of bubbles make their way into the reservoir. this can take hours or days, depending on the complexity of the loop and the placement/orientation of the rad(s).

comment too long, posting the second half next...

>> No.57466028


>o-ring seating
this is generally not something you'll need to worry about if you buy decent fittings but if you're familiar with plumbing you'll understand that Metal-Metal contact requires immense pressure to be water tight. That's why you need rubber seals. Some o-rings are perfectly round all the way round, donut shaped, and they can be rolled into place. If you do this, you need to ensure they get rolled evenly so that no side of the ring is jutting out moreso than the rest, and that even pressure is achieved. in some cases, the pressure of having so much fluid moving by that a leak can occur. seating the rings properly is easy enough.

>rinse the loop
yes. if you replace the fluid, you'll want to run distilled water (or recommended fluid) to remove the old residue from the loop. same as flushing your car's radiator loop.

>bacterial growth
it's really bad. if bacteria grows, you'll never eradicate it and you'll have colonies clogging your loop and you'll have to replace all of it. the solution is simple; Anti-Bacterial additive. They're like 6$. google 'biocide' or 'biocidal agent'

I have read the threads about the SENTRY, and it did indeed look interesting.
But I want the system to take with me, and I can better see it fitting in the thicker configuration of the DANCase.

There was also a guy (QinX) that made an ultra compact watercooled PC.
But he cheated and used outside the case power-bricks.

Also I tried to make simple constructions in wood, to try out the SENTRY's placement of hardware. And atleast with the hardware I have in my many mITX builds, it was not that efficient as soon as I started up GTA5/HITMAN™.
