What to with air conditioners – John Fregona
Here’s a system that has all the cooling one could want!
The system has a freeze water cooler running on alcohol and a back up cooler. There is a modified air conditioner and 6 large fans to hold the cool air @ 50 degrees in the back and front of the mother board.
This keeps components cool and there is no condensation from the
extreme cooling. I keep the system runing at a temp of 0ºC @ THE
CPU AND 50 DEGREES F at the case.
- 3, 512 Corsair extreme memory
- AMD 3200 running at 2600 MHz (4000 +)
- I designed the water blocks – all copper 3/4″ thick x 3″ & 1/2″ inlets
spiral core design – there’s no plastic here.
- The clear case I designed and had the parts built by tap plastic
large case with a quick change motherboard procedure, rip one
out a install another in 5 minutes.
- 750 watt power supply
- Two Nivida graphic cards
- 5 15000 rpm drives arrayed (Seagate Cheetah)
This computer is used for only CAD work only and is stable.
I could overclock more but this sometimes causes drive problems; then I have to reinstall software afer a given time, which is a pain.
I will sometime this year revise the system to an AMD 64.
Here is an update on my cool system; I am now running an AMD Opteron running @ 3.0 stable – this computer has it all! I use it for my design office.
