Default ◄ Wall mounted, Water cooled PC (The RecoilMachine)

Hi all,

Having been inspired by a few other wall mounted PCs, I decided to build my own.


I used my existing hardware, but separated each component out and mounted them on a Perspex/Plexiglass plate. Each plate is backlit with LED's and mounted on a piece of framed and vinyl-clad hardboard.


2 months, around 20 individual shipments of components from three different continents, and countless hours of hard work later, 'The RecoilMachine' is ready and hanging on my wall.



I have also uploaded a video of the rig on YouTube: www.youtube.com/user/RecoilProduction



The water-cooling system is a simple loop that covers both GPUs and the CPU, and bleeds the heat through one 360mm radiator wih three 120mm fans running at 1200 rpm. The pump is running at its lowest setting, which is still easily enough to keep temperatures down. Consequently, the whole system is very quiet.
Idle temps for CPU and GPUs are 38 C, and 32 C respectively.
Load temps for CPU and GPUs are 63 C, and 68 C respectively.
The temperature of the water in the loop never exceeds 30 C.

◄ Main System specs ►
Gigabyte EX58-UDP5 (Rev 1.0)
Intel Core i7 920, 2.66 GHz
Asus GTX 590 1.5GB
Samsung 250GB SSD 840 EVO SSD
Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black Hard Drive
Seagate 1TB Hard drive

◄ Water cooling specs ►
Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos Delrin CPU water block
Alphacool Laing D5 Vario Pump
Monsoon Series Two Dual 5.25in Reservoir
Alphacool NexXxoS NVXP NV 590 Series GPU water block
Phobya G-Silent 12 1200rpm Fans, Black Silent Edition
Black Ice GTS-Lite 360 Radiator
Masterkleer Tubing PVC 19/13mm
19/13mm Compression Fitting 45 Rotary G1/4
19/13mm Compression Fitting 90 Rotary G1/4


The system is overclocked around 30% using a simple BCLK and voltage buff in the BIOS.




Let me know what you think

Looks like the rig off Imgur we all talked about months ago.
