Couple of pics of the new cooling system...  More to come soon!





The two pics above are while CPU is idle if anyone is wondering.

That is going to be the trick.
Venom, are you guys using ambient temp probe(s) to control the water temp? or preset temp? With ambient temps having a 20 degree swing, and humidity going from 20%-90%. seems like if it was preset, for worst condidtions, the temps would not be that great?  95F room with 90% RH would require the fluid temp to be 92F-93F, yet in my office, this morning, you could have the fluid 55F and have no problems.. manual control would be fine for some users, but not for others. ??

Ugh Id hate to have to be in a 95 degree room.  If man were meant to be in that hot a temperature he would never have invented AC  Whoa

On a more serious note, I wonder what our indoor relative humidity is....going to have to find some way to tell.

indoor RH varys greatly. I have measured many, many homes, part of my job, 20%-95%, plus it will vary with weather, and seasons..
95F with AC on in my office sometimes.. to much heat created from all the damn electronics, 70F in the rest of the home.. LOL

Im thinking ours should be somewhere between 40 and 60% in our house with the house temps in the low 70s and in the upper 70's in my office (We have a humidifier on our Heat/AC system)   I do appreciate the heat generated by my equipment in the winter time, keeps me nice and toasty while the wife is wandering around the rest of the house in heavy sweaters.

In the final build, the water block and such will have foam to insulate it.

The scythe controller is just monitoring the temp of the quick disconnect, didn't have a water temp probe to connect (yet).  Currently there isn't an ambient probe controlling temps.

There should be some kind of filter if possible around the waterblock.

Alex said they were going to encase the water block in some kind of foam to prevent condensation...I think.
