It was a long journey to get to this point, and it's not over either. I am trying to decide what video card to put under water on this setup.
This setup is very quiet. I turned off all fans/electronics in my house and it is almost not noticeable.
My original configuration called for 3xScythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPMs wired for 5V, but the motor growl and frequency beats of three drove me up the wall.
Prior to this, I had used a Danger Den DD-CPX1 pump which is silent if decoupled properly, but it was transmitting an audible hum that nagged at me. It prompted me to switch out for the DDC3.25 and the Koolance top.
The CPU is overclocked to 4.8 GHz @ 1.425V set in BIOS, and in LinX w/AVX it peaks at around 85C. The PSU sometimes emits a light squeal here and there, but it is not very noticeable.
The loudest part of this setup is the semi-soft mounted Noctua acting as the rear exhaust.
With the side panels on, this thing looks almost like a regular stock A05NB, except for the wooden feet I've added to give the bottom mounted radiator some breathing room.I still have to sleeve and tidy up the pump cables.
Who says watercooling for silence is a dead scene?
