HX-1080 released

Postby Izerous » Wed Mar 07, 2012 9:26 am

In case anyone hasn't checked the new products since Monday afternoon, the 9x120 radiator from inside the ERM-3K3UA is now available by itself with a shroud. Already made arrangements to pick one up myself. Originally I was going to stay fully internal with my current case however with lack of time and motivation to rip apart my computer to do the modifications to fit a 2x120 in the bottom area and resulting with essentially 5x120 coverage picking up a 9x120 and going external again didn't seem like a bad idea.

Talk about extreme cooling crazy.

I would really like to see this with a multi- input and valve system whereby you configure the array to run multiple loops. For example; instead of 1x9 it could be made into 3x3 or 2x4 +1x1 or 1x5 + 1x4 etc. Unless you have 2 CPUs, 4 GPUs, a pair of PSU 100ATX's and the whole MB/ RAM/ HDD subsystem on a single loop (which would require some clever pump configuration I imagine), 9x 120 rads seems overkill to me. I guess it could be used to cool multiple units in a server centre but for the enthusiast I'm not sure how it fits.
How do you plan to use it, Izerous?

I bet he will find some ways but that is a bit overkill. But look at it this way at least you wont need to buy any rads or fans for a long time. And if they let us have different loops where we could customize that rad would be very interesting but for now I would have no use for it. But I am curious iz how you would be able to use it.

The loop will actually be pretty simple.

452x2 > CPU > MB > GPU > 9.120 > return

CPU = OC'ed 1100T
MB = CH4-EX
GPU = 6990 not yet OC'ed

This is actually going to be all about noise... Buying the new home has been an exercise in patience and that combined with work I just don't have any spare time to do the full internal mods like how I originally planned. What we bought was a Full Duplex (both units up/down) and the sound carries from the vibrations of the fans (tk-123s) which currently isn't an issue as the office is currently above what is the utility room downstairs. However my office is going to be moved to a room that is above one of their bedrooms instead. Going to a 9.120 rad is going to allow me to use slow speed fans and still get better heat dissipation with much less noise, and still have happy renters.

My other plan was to rock the tk-123 and just use a controller to slow them down but besides making my own controller I have not found one that controls the tk-123's correctly.

Box just arrived today... kinda excited. Due to a surprise bill with my vehicle I didn't order the fans I had originally intended to but I have enough mismatched 120mm fans to hopefully get it integrated over the weekend.

Flushing the radiator. Currently covered with mix-matched fans until I pick up the ones I actually want to use. Didn't bother to clean them first as you can see from the picture.

Ignore the temp reading was using the wrong temp sensor for the control board that I used to run the pump. Hopefully have it all back together before the weekend as while I had it all apart was a great time to install the CNT-RP452 acrylic piece and finally install the 6990 liquid cooler which I have been putting off until I had the system ripped apart.

I still haven't quite settled on how I'm going to attach this to my side panel. The specialty bolt supply house doesn't have what I was thinking of using.

Can you have any more wires scattered everywhere lol. Can't wait to see the finished product though.

Managed to pick up a few of the fans I wanted for this. Also turns out I also only have 8 silver fan grills not 9 so I alternated the couple black ones I had with the silvers. First picture is from doing the leak test before I finished re-hiding the pump wires etc.

Can't find the charger for my real camera so sorry about the pictures being cell phone quality.

I drilled 4 holes in the side panel and managed to find 4 matching longer standoffs with the right threading to screw into the radiator. Then put screws threw the side panel into the standoffs to secure it. I would have preferred to use all 6 mounting locations on the one side however I didn't have that many matching standoffs. I might pick up a few more in the future so that I have 6.

So to detach for transportation in the vehicle, remove 4 screws and detach the QDCs and it is much simpler to transport.

That's a lot of noctua fans lol but they get the job done. That would nice if that was all one color but down the road you will make changes to it. Overall inpression, that's a neat idea to do on screwing it to the side. It looks like its coming together well that's a job well done.
