Vray RT / production rendering workstation with good cooling capacity.
Anyone know what case that is? It's not the V71
Do you work from home? If not, that computer has to be a hot topic at your work center. Pretty cool!
Build looks great, in particular I could see that you have worked hard at making the build very tidy in terms of cabling! Are you confident that the Enermax people have sorted out the cooler issues with version 2?
I've had zero issues with Enermax so far. It covers entire CPU surface which is really important. I've been aware of some quality problems in the past but I guess I'll ask for replacement if something fails. Nothing bad will happen to the pc even if it stops instantly.
All the best with it! For my own upcoming build with a 2950X I will be using the Corsair - H150i PRO 47.3 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler which of course does not have full coverage. I wish the situation with TR4 cooling was a little more settled but with any luck we will both have cool CPUs :)
Enermax cooling has gradually faded over the last two weeks. CPU was overheating all the time and stayed below 2.5GHz. I could hear the pump working but the radiator was cold. One pipe was hot, other cold. I returned the thing and they gave me temporary replacement - some weird looking Noctua D15 which works fine and is also a bit quieter. I'll still give Emermax another chance. Let's hope it won't be another disappointment.
My sympathies! However you have definitively decided for me that I will not buy one of these coolers...
you got these on damn good sale
Actual price was 3600 eur + 22% VAT, so it's 4900$
Rear fan is in the wrong direction.
I'm kinda annoyed by the fact that the radiator is mounted one fan spot lower than it usually is. Also missing some purple sleeved cables.
Apart from that top notch specs
The radiator is mounted on the top position, there isn't mounting support along the whole front panel. Custom sleeves in a workstation seems silly too. But you're right, that rear fan needs to be flipped around to exhaust.
Thanks for the remark! I've fixed the direction of the fan. Radiator unfortunatelly can't go higher than this. Originally I had it under the top of the case but I prefer this layout.
shouldn't be the radiator fans blowing inside... ? your fan is pushing hot air from inside the case into the radiator.
I have 6 140mm case fans extracting hot air from the case. 3 of them are just above the GPUs. Good extraction capacity on the top means you get lots of fresh air from the base. This fresh air will supply the low positioned radiator with the air at room temperature. Works fine. CPU is below 60 deg C after many hours of non stop rendering with fans working silently at 800 rpm.
That's why you usually have the radiator in the top. But looks count aswell.
