    Now see, i used to love this type of tech, id rather have quiet over bling anyday. Then for some reason i started lusting after LED/RGB fans and tempered glass cases......but i spent lots of money and the noise was awful. I think function over form wins, hear endeth the lesson.

    Just curious- it seems you've channeled the airflow over the power supply (nice touch to unshell it) into the cpu cooler.

    You should try to build an ITX SSF next! I'm interested in making my own ITX case, all of the console sized cases I've seen are more expensive than some graphics cards, which is absolutely ridiculous.

    If you want quiet cooling on GPU, use liquid cooling. It's not just cool to look at but it replaces the heat where ever you want and then you can cool it down how every you want.

    ill give a personal testimony i had bought a budget name brand bronze rated power supply over a coarse of time and 2 Walmart shelf computers this power supply i dusted and maintained "550w" on mid/ standard pc's. it blew up. mushroom cloud of smoke and everything, it was my daily 24/7 computer "power-supply" for a couple years and dusted. but blew up the compositors and all sending melted parts all thru its metal case. "the metal case around the power supply does help prevent fire, in case the smaller electronics pop and spew.

    Maybe the PSU manufacturers might modify a (one of this in airy cage) Fanless Power supplies for this

    I've had two internal PC fires in my life. One was when lightning struck the mains line outside my house one night and I woke up to a nasty smell coming from my PC. The power supply was shot as well as the hard disk drive. The molex connector on the drive had blown apart and showered the chassis internals with burning plastic.
    The other happened when I was plugging in a floppy disk drive blind and stepped the connector over one position such that the yellow 12v and it's nearest black ground were spanning the middle two ground pins on the drive, which are bridged. The PSU failed to shut down and the 12v wire burned all the way from the connector to the power supply box.
    Point is, fires can happen from low voltage circuits. I'm considering a low noise chassis build but I'm planning on putting any sound deadening insulation between metal layers, essentially having a fire resistant aluminum inner chassis and a larger outer chassis.

    It's a crappy solution, but it's a brilliant solution.
    It's crappy in that this is not of great use as a standard with the towels. Good rubber/silicon supports for mounting the fans etc. would be better. And is doable.
    The top orientation of the motherboard is not even a bad idea. Eveery case will have to become a bit bigger overall, to keep some space open for cables to be able to have a little lead space, let alone that quite a few people first have an adapter from one type to another before actually getting to the cable which adds space requirement.
    Some of these things can be fixed with extension cables (as partly done) that could go to the back. For audio cables and network and mouse and keyboard that will almost never be needed, mostly it's just the video cable, which should happen less and less to be honest.
    But, all the extra extension cables would add quite a bit of extra cost.
    The air flow idea is pretty sound, and it works, the biggest problem is with mounting the GPU cooling. It's heavy. Real heavy. And big. Bye bye SLI.
    This could be fixed with a new mobo layout. Which is unlikely, but maybe not a bad idea.
    Think about it. Just make a motherboard oriented left to right, cpu on one side, with expansion slots still at the right, but down to up oriented, so they do not share airflow. Most expansion cards will not generate too much heat, so you might still mount those under the CPU. I would however move the videocard specific slots, let's just say 2, with some space for how thick they can be, on the right.
    This will still be a bit of a bitch, either you mount them above one another (need a long flexible SLI cable, which does most likely not effect performance since even PCI slot extenders only start giving trouble after meters), but they'd share airflow.
    Side mounted would mean a VERY deep case because of the giant cooling block. You could have muchos heatpipes come up from the videocards, so, towards the side of the case i mean, making the case a little wider, although you'd have quite a bit of room to play with.
    It may very well work, but it would mean designing a complete new motherboard layout, not just form factor, but completely different layout, and the same goes for the vid card layout, especially seen the cooling. Which would need some support structure for the coolers, which needs new standards, which means there would be limited options for the vidcard makers to place their GPU's or cooler manufacturers may need to change a specific cooler with several layout depending on the vidcard manufacturers and the way they place their GPU's.
    It's a shit storm.
    But, it does work.
    I'd like to see more of this sort of thing, change the standard of everything to the new thing. It's just layout, not the tech.

    It is neat and all, but not very practical. Most will never be able to put this size of cooler on their GPU. My GTX1060 founders card never breaks a sweat and I have never heard the fan, so I doubt most will need this, unless you are OC the GPU to the max, most will never notice the fan. If I were super worried about it, I would cool it with Freon.

  • Ryan McCardle
    Ryan McCardle 4 месяца назад

    I like your idea, however I am concerned about heat with the fire hazard with the Power Supply, and the overheat issue with the Smaller HDD in the Pocket near the Cpu. These can cause issues for sure.

  • Martin Ocando
    Martin Ocando 4 месяца назад

    There is an advantage of using a good air system instead of water cooling, and you kind of mentioned it, but didn't made it very clear. With water cooling, the only components actually getting cooled are the ones with the sinks connected to, on which a typical water cooling system comes with sinks for the CPU and GPU. Although, you still need air cooling for the rest of the components. With the fully air system, everything gets cooled down.
    BTW, you do look like Theon Greyjoy LOL

    Nice dude!!! I appreciate your work! I have silenced my GTX 690 with Arctic Twin Turbo III. Gaming is no more disturbed by Computer noise.
    We can sleep with our NAS in our sleeping room.
    All HDDs are attached with rubber band and this was the one and only noise Factor. 8 x 8 TB with 7200 RPM too much vibration but with rubber band zero noise emission. CPU and PSU no noise emission of the cooler. I use 5 140mm Fans with 600 RPM to keep the disk under 36°C without cooling they get 43°C and above. Fans also are detached by rubber band from the case.
    My Wooden Computer mini ITX with the GPU in it have custom size to let the Arctic Cooler IIi fit into minimal space case. The GPU runs at 57°C max under Full Load. CPU 3770K runs at 3.6 GHz and gets 47°C max under high load. SSD gets around 26-47°C depends on usage.

    This is a beautiful case and machine but there is a huge problem. That open power supply is extremely dangerous. Even if you turn off and unplug it, the capacitors can store a lethal amount of charge. Be very careful about ever touching that area of the machine.

    The case around the power supply isn't so much due to safety concerns but to meet FCC regulations. The actual RF noise produced by a power supply isn't enough to concern the consumer, but the FCC has very strict standards that manufacturers have to meet.

    +DIY Perks why don't you adapt the original GPU Cooler adding the monster cooler to it? usually the GPU cooler has more contact and takes heat out of more than one component of the board, using the old contact with the new cooler wolud give a better looking and more eficient build? why not try it out?
    About the power suply: its not the high voltage the most concerning thing; the capacitors are usually the most dangerous thing to fail there and the problem is not only the towels, but the proximity to the motherboard, would not be better to put it in a separate bay under those fans for safety?

    • Lasse Reinlaufen
      Lasse Reinlaufen 6 месяцев назад

      you cant just stack a CPU cooler on top of the GPU heatsink. The cooling area of the original cooler is too small to make a difference anyways.
