Ready to go.
What? No fans ? ? ? ?
;f ;f ;f ;f
It was a good project. I learned a lot from it.
The server actually sits in a 40U fully enclosed case with active cooling in the case. So the whole system is not fan-less.
I had to do this to keep some airflow going over the hard drives.
Then add the noise from the PSU and you pretty much have a loud computer anyways.
;z ;z ;z
All in all, the system runs sound and stable.
I didn't like not using 1/2 Tygon Tubing, but it just wouldn't allow the cover to be re-installed.
Temperatures are what you would expect. Ambient.
That is too cool (so to speak).^c
Is that something u came up with or does one buy a kit or sumthin?
No, I pieced this together from years of water cooling experiences and spare parts.
I'm almost done with another project that I'll post soon.
Take care Bro ! ! !
Hi Alex! Cool (he he) project! Thats a nice system monitor. What is it called and where can I get it?
That System Monitor came on a CD for the SuperMicro motherboard.
You can actually go to SUperMicro's web site and get it, but it won't work on anything other than SuperMicro.
Sorry about that.
i'm surprised it doesn't beep at you thinking the fans are failing.
I tried it without the tubing. Didn't work out so good.
I just built my wife a system using an ANTEK case with their quiet power supply. It has a fan, but doesn't run it unless it needs to. So far, it just trickles air. You might give their PSU a look see.
Yeah, I had to disable FAN MONITORING in the bios.
I just don't want to be the box under yours when a tube chafes, or a connector blows....
LOL, I have two other water cooled PC's sitting underneath it.
(surgical tubing used. very hard to cut and the connectors are all mechanical/threaded.)
I thought you just put the computer in the bathtub to watercool it...Maybe that is why I keep shorting mine out...
I love glocktalk...you can learn so many cool things here
What about just rackmounting your servers in a refridgerator?
this looks like good fodder for making a webpage (pictures and an interesting project)
Don't laugh. The hard part in doing that is keeping the condensation from forming around and underneath all the connectors. IE: CPU, PCI Slots, etc....
Then you have to contend with moisture on the motherboard.
It has been done.
