    Re: DreamCatcher v2.0 “Worklog”

    Apologies udarts, it will run 3.1 but not fold, 3.0 only!!

    Re: DreamCatcher v2.0 “Worklog”

    Got it all back together and fired it up for a short OCCT run. Had tried to do it the last time but didn’t. Just for S&Gs tried to get the probe for the MX6’s temp gage stuff near the NB base. As you can see in the picture it would have been nice to have gotten the tip closer to where the heatpipe goes in.
    i know you've got some tt thermal probes laying around. it would slide farther under and closer to the chip. i doubt they'll reach the case panel but how about another led panel?

    so do you think it's a heat issue?

    Got the Tt ordered should be here in a week (free shipping!) so will just let DC fold 'til the cooler gets here. Hope it comes with one of those foam "spacers"!

    Why should I care? Isn't that why people go water.... so they can hear some internal fan(s)! That's what happens when you run out to the garage and grab the frist thing you see out of the donation box!

    Re: DreamCatcher v2.0 “Worklog”

    Well the latest on the NB is this……… While running GPU + classic client at 70 – 88% cpu usage (per CoolMon) the NB temp has stayed at 56C with the cores running between 16 – 51C. The GPU is a rock steady 50C at 100%. BTW do have a Tt Extreme Spirit II coming in for the NB.

    On the issue of getting the software for the AC 240 Pro MkII to do anything……….
    Oddly enough when I finally got around to looking into again (have been sorta ignoring it because of the NB) aquasuite appears to be running! As this is what popped up and was able to “access” this morning……….



    Either I managed to get it going unknowingly or it was a case of “Fix thyself”! Now I need to see if I can find something in English that will help wade through the settings and understand how to manipulate them in my current brain dead condition!

    And in the “I can’t leave anything alone” department, I’ve been playing with the GPU settings using RT. On of my good online buds from MO and I have been comparing notes about GPU folding and he mentioned that upping the shader freq will help a GPU to fold a little faster. This originally started when we were comparing performance between out GSOs. Long story short my Evga 8800GT SC is now running SSC speeds and the temp only blip up 1C occasionally. Stock is 650 / 950 / 1650 and SSC is 700 / 1000 / 1750. Not too good at sliders so I have 701 / 1000 / 1783.

    Taking the shader freq. from 1650 to 1783 has knocked off 7 seconds for 1%.... 00:1:17 to 00:1:10. May move the shader a little higher later as with the 9600GSO in BHrDx by going from stock 1375 to 1516 the drop is 00:1:55 down to 00:1:42 (11 seconds on a 384 pt) per 1%. This amounted saving 22 minutes through a cycle.

    Re: DreamCatcher v2.0 “Worklog”

    While I’m waiting on the NB cooler to arrive, I have been thinking about what to do with the voltage regulators. It would seem the easiest thing to do would be to reuse the existing one. When looking at it I realized that nothing was welded and it appears to be just “stuck” together. As I’ve got the spare one, it was given a twist and sure enough it came apart!



    What ever thermal adhesive was used to assembly it was not meant to be permanent. You can see the material in the two pictures. As it turns out it is no more than an anodized aluminum passive cooler.



    Now my only concern is if the thermal paste will short out anything on the regulators as when the hs is mounted the stuff could “ooze” onto one of the legs.



    If the thing does seem really warm once everything is hooked together I may just mount the 50mm I’m currently using on the NB to it! If I’m lucky the mounting holes will be within the limits of the hs and I can “screw” it on.

    Re: DreamCatcher v2.0 “Worklog”

    Now I've managed to get myself into a quandary on the NB cooling issue. The Tt cooler came in last Wednesday and it is a “cutie”, being all copper and shiny with the little blue led 40mm. However I managed to tripped across and purchase an older aqua computer twinplex chip cooler on the cheap . That is for mounting on an intel mobo BTW so I'll have to swap mtg. brackets.

    So now, which should I use!?!?! The obvious would be to include the cooler in the WC loop, but don’t feel like dismantling the present loop build. Another option would be to see if the wee Tt will do the job and then migrate to the water block “if needed”. Oh well I’ll wait for now as the twinplex is to be mailed Monday and can’t work on anything for several days anyway………
