Solved a bit of an issue on the quad build. The 120mm rad and the top 360mm rad being in such close proximity left no room for a standard fan for 'push' on the 120mm.

I found a 12mm 47CFM fan that while not having much Static pressure works differently when it is 'assisting' the high Static pressure fan pulling on the 120mm rad.

The difference is very noticeable as far as the airflow through the rad and compliments the high SP pull fan (looks great as well :) )12mmrad2.jpg 12mmrad3.jpg12mmrad3.jpg

Next up , the sleeved cables and the 4 MSI R290X before the loop gets routed.

I just got got the last sponsors beautiful contribution back, and the project will really pick up pace now. this is the color scheme I chose for the Holodeck XI build for the AMD HPP.

Finished light panel, and got all three PSU's in place.
The panel has proven to be very difficult to photograph, but looks really cool with its polished aluminum frame.

Wow just Wow, you have my bowing at your feet with such a beautiful build!

But I have one question, why choose to do 3 power supplies over just doing like an AX1500i?
Hi Ghost :)
Thanks for the comment.
Good question. I have pulled in excess of 1900w during benches. while that is not very common a 1500i would be cutting it close and I am a big believer in the 70/30 rule for PSU's in my machines.

Wow those serious overclocks are really paying a toll on the power usage under complete load. I am beyond impressed either way though you could have possibly done a 1500i and another small one I suppose :p.

Using those X5s makes it a bit more modular as well. The X5 can be dedicated to individual GPUs.

Thanks to cooler master for sending me a Nepton 280L for the A10 7850K Dual Graphics 'Transporter Build .

If you are looking for 140mm fans with High Static pressure/high CFM, I tried them on 45mm and 60mm rads and the JetFlo's are excellent performers.

Kek, here I am running my 290X + 295X2 tri-fire setup & OC'd CPU with 750W PSU. According to teh Internet it shouldn't be possible.

Well thats 900w there under heavy game load. So either you are not pushing them or your PSU is way underrated.

Uggh. Can't wait to get home and start a new build. That won't be until July. Thanks for all the updates Red!!,

Red's crazy builds really make me want to go all ham next time I'm up for a new system (probably end of 2015).... so jelly.

A quick question though, how is that relationship between the thinner, mid CFM fan working with the high SP fan? I'm guessing it pushes the air into the rad far enough that the higher SP fan can pull more efficiently?

(wow, that post from red is from august... this almost feels like necro post. =/)

I've run my rig in a push pull config with 120mm fans. I usually averaged 3-5degree lower temps at idle than a single fan setup with rads. But I also have ridiculous radiators.

I currently have a couple AIO kits stuffed into an ITX case. The extra push from the second fan I have on each rad actually helps for sure, but they are identical fans, so my question was in relation to Red's mismatched fans, for the same reasons, for space constratints. :)

I was in hospital twice this year in ICU at times my family did not know if I would be leaving other than in a body bag. It has been a long protracted recovery , however I am back now and if you are still interested I am back at it. One of the two machine project is finished, and the other is close.
thanks for your patience :)

Wow, that's terrible, but I'm sure it is a relief for you and especially your family that you made it through all right.

Glad to see you're back red - and I hope you're putting your health before everything else.

If this is what you are speaking of , it has to do with room available. the 10mm thinner fan is 'listed' as pushing 36 CFM, but whatever the the real rating is is provides help for the high CFM CM Excalibur to be more efficient and does move significant;y more air. it's a very good system I have found.

@ Papa and mad,
thanks guys :) It was a very close call and don't want to see the white light for a while again hehe.

If my previous few cases are any indication, I like to challenge myself to build in smaller cases while stuffing as much in as practical. Hearing that any help (from a thinner fan) is better than no help regarding push pull is useful, since when it comes to liquid cooling, rads in push pull sure take A LOT of space, and/or the space provided by case manufacturers is not very much in some cases.

thanks guys :) It was a very close call and don't want to see the white light for a while again hehe.
For sure, the red glow of the Holodeck is far more appealing.

Hi Gang,
A few improvements and upgrades to the AMD HPP

Holodeck XI upgrade
Upped the Koolance 370-A to the Koolance 380-A
( This is for the Quad R290X/FX-8350 Build)

380A.JPG

I also acquired a new sponsor (Micro Center) who has donated a 4K Monitor to the Project to go along with the bench marking of my 5760 x 1080 Eyefinity setup. That is it siting atop the A10 7850K Kaveri Build of the AMD HPP

(this is For the Quad R290X/FX8350 Build)
(Also for The A10 7850K Dual Graphics Build)
