    Posted: 29 Jun 2010 at 12:09am
Hi all I posted back in early May regarding a build I was considering and have made some refinements. I am extremely pumped to finally get a DS system. I have waited years to have a nice desktop and its finally nearly time! Im creating a thread now for any questions while the whole process goes through for questions I may have.
 
I am dead set on the liquid cooling so it is unlikely anyone can sway that the rest I am open for debate on. I run a side business in Fine art where I do large commisions so a beautiful computer to show all my potencial clients designs on is  worth the money. Aesthetics is key! Im sure Digital Storm wont mind the exposure It will get them...these are clients with money;P
 
I didnt add the increased warranty as I assume that may be included this weekend
 
I ordered the ZR24w HP 1920x1200 IPS today through HP business...free shipping that way:)
 
 
Ok heres the Build Im thinking of ordering the second they post the sale this weekend!

Nice I will be changing that to EVGA when I order than.
 
Does anyone know if all the sub zero tubing options are opaque? I thought it would be nice to have tubing that is clear so you can see the liquid but all the pics in reviews look like they are not?
 
As I am looking around here I came up with another question. As it is good policy to check your pc once arrived for loose fittings and reseat cards, ram, etc....how do you do this when you have the stage 6 LC installed? Based on pictures the video cards dont look like they can move much. I get really worried when I think about messing with itCry
 
As well as Ram, is it easy to remove that memory fan? I read in a review it is installed on the memory clips so I assume it shouldnt be difficult but hope I dont have to.

So I'm considering just getting a second 480 and cool that as well. How insanely overpowered is that? I'm just thinking of one year later wont it cost more to add a second LC gpu at that time compared to now? Wouldn't I have to ship it back to have it hooked into the LC setup? With shipping sounds more expensive than doing it now. Or is one 480 going to maxing settings at 1920x1200 so well that it isn't worth 2?

Thoughts?

or you could just downgrade to stage 2 cooling without liquid and get the core i7 980 extreme processor with an evga nvidia 480... and then just add a couple more fans... its not like ur stage 3 overclocking it.... why u need sub zero cooling?
 
and then in 6 months to a year... add another evga 480

Im going stage 6 because it is necessary for me to have the system quiet. Or at least quieter than jet engine sounds coming from the card, and longevity. Both are worth the cost to me. I am will very likely be doing overclocking as well. So tempting to just hit all hte upgrades too though I see your point.

lol well that's just the thing I don't have anything to reference than other posts...based on that it seems to suggest that air cool is louder than liquid cool. I understand it isn't needed to LC but I would prefer LC over air. However if someone can explain to me that LC sounds like a jet engine all day long I would seriously reconsider.

Do the rads sound like a fridge running or a window mounted air conditioner or something like that? Because that would be pretty loud lol Can anyone give me a real world example for comparison? I am buying tomorrow before noon so +10 Internets if someone can explain it more for me by then to help me with my decisions.

Anyone care to comment on the gtx480 question...will just one already be plenty to max most everything at 24" 1920x1200 or would 2 be ideal?

If you have gotten the impression air is loud in these air specialized cases, you haven't been paying good attention. They are all whisper quiet due to the extreme large size of the fans. Large fans move way more air per each than small ones, and thus do not have to employ high RPM and extreme blade pitch. What is loud, and reported consistently so, is the optional case fans you pay extra for. Many buyers choose one of the air flow cases that is quiet, and want to festoon it with unneeded extra SMALL fans that are not.
 
The same basic applies to LC to some degree. As it's not required, it's a luxury item some people guess is quieter than a high airflow case, when it's a mixed bag. If you LC the gpu's, that fan noise goes away which is very good. But now ALL the cooling depends upon smaller high RPM fans that cool the radiators, which is not so good. The good news is that there are quiet fans available in the market, if you are not pleased with what you get. But you have to buy 'em and change 'em.
 
Loud is a matter of perception, like a lot of other things. I have the stuff you see below in my sig. It is on the floor right next to me, and I have to strain to hear anything. My last rig had all small fans (80's and 120's I think), and I could be annoyed by it 15 feet away. You have the bread to invest in LC, and that's fine. No fault there. You have traded gpu noise for rad fan noise, and that's probably a very good trade. You may be very happy, but you won't be quieter than me.
 
If you want to go SLI some time, it's better to do it now, so you get the LC on both at once.

I'm shocked at how quiet my new system is.
The system sits on my desk 3 feet from me and is quieter than my oscillating fan on low 10 feet from me.
Even when going all out on games, my 480 + HAF 922 fans are quieter than just one of my old computer's 120mm fans.

@Cretae
 
Thanks for the detailed writeup explaining the levels of volume between rig options. The cases and the noise they make wasnt my question although reading back I didnt make that clear at all did I:P My main concern was actually GPU noise I cant describe how much I dislike the up and down noise they make when under load or not. The fan noise for the rads will probably suck but in my opinion if its a consistent noise I can tune it out easier. If needed it is nice to know fans could be changed to make it even quieter. In the end Im glad for going with LC for the longevity it can provide as ALL my past PC issues have involved heat and failure from it.
 
Thanks for also agreeing that SLI is better to do now than later because of the LC. That was the biggest debate I was dying over but I figured better just do it now then deal with the hassel later.

I just didn't want to leave you with the impression LC = quiet. It CAN, but you have to tweak it some. I didn't want you to have an "OMG, what have I done" moment when the system came, lol.  No doubt you can turn the RPM's down, so the stock fans DS uses are acceptable, maybe even fine. I did agree trading rad fans for gpu fans was a good trade!
Overall, you're going to love your system, and that's worth whatever it costs.  Cool

Im just downright amazed  DS went from stage 1 on Tuesday all the way to stage 7 tonight! Considering how long some members have had to wait for thier systems it makes me scratch my head. This was SLI rig with full SUB Zero cooling. Barring a perfect storm I think this will ship tomorrow.
