INSANELY COOL G4!

INSANELY COOL G4! - 09/15/05 08:11 AM

I recently wrote an article on my mdd to G5 case conversion. I have a part 2 in the works, BUT, I was so excited by the progress, I had to post. After an hour of running four programs continuiously here are my temperatures: CPUs 45.1 C HD1 27.0 C HD2 33.0 C HD3 32.0C Now that is freaking cool for an MDD! In its mdd case my temps were considerably higher. Hmmm....after I get done with my articles it may be time to overclock even higher!

Wow maestro... that is really awesome. Is this the same G4 you have up for sale?

No doubt the G5 case is one of history's best designs. I was so wowed when I first saw it at the Apple store.

Yeah, it was for sale. Why get a new one if Ive got this. By the way, at those temps, you cant even hear it.

Was as in, no longer?

Well, why not? Perhaps we'll eventually get G5 upgrade possibilities?

Good gravy, imagine the possibilities! :blink:

Personally, with all the work you've done to that baby, I wouldn't be able to part with it.

I know a easy way to cool a G5 to a uber cool temp. Vapor cooling. Costs a arm and a leg but it's worth it.

You know, I was considering vapor cooling for my g3. Pretty expensive though. Just read a great article on it in CPU. Now I wonder if one of the manufacturers would let me test one!

Vapor cooling? someone wanna explaine that a little more? sounds cool wink but also a little dangerous. How does it work? any links?

Vapor Phase Cooling is an uncommon method in the world of overclocking. In very basic terms, you build an evaporator which is the CPU, GPU or North-Bridge heatsink. The evaporator connects to a condensor which in turn is connected to a compressor. Most people use a mix of R290(Propane) and R507a refrigerant gases. Some people will use cascade vapor phase cooling which is a bit more complex and can achieve temperatures below -100 C. Typical temperature ranges for Vapor Phase Change Cooling is about -20 to -90C, depending on the gases, compressor and evaporator that's being used.

Just to see, I turned all of the fans on high. At idle, CPUs 41.2! I just can't believe how effective this mod has been. I planned on a part 2 mod guide, but heres a couple of pics anyway.

Thats a little pricey. But, I am ordering some real carbon fiber to but inside the case and to
make bezels for the front case controls.

Scroll down a bit and he has instructions for the do-it-yourself, why would you ever buy something like this? honestly, this is a mod forum :cheer:

Hey Maestro,

What kind of Antec is that? Could you tell us a little more about said fan setup, or is that going to wait till the mod guide?

Reason: Doing some heavy work on a 9600 and looking into fan controllers that will work pretty well with a Mac.

:silly:

Wow, thanks for the props guys. I am going to write more specifically in a mod guide coming up here probably this weekend. I too am very impressed with the quietness and cooling. After all, I stole the idea from Apple (cooling zones). I am going to be starting three more mods coming up here soon and will probably use a similar format in a different case.
Thanks again.
