Meshify TURBO 911

by ediZZo

Description

Hello World! This is my first build since Sandy Bridge. Finally replacing my beloved i5-2500k and GTX 960.
Btw rgb-fans in front are Alpenföhn Wing Boost 3 ARGB fans.
Special thanks go to @GamersNexus ‏@JayzTwoCents ‏@paulhardware ‏and @TechDeals_16 ‏=)

Did you delid the cpu? Why did you use conductonaut? You didn't use liquid metal in place of thermal paste did you?

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

No i did not delid the cpu, its already soldered and wouldn't make much difference. I just used LM because im used to it and imho its easy to apply and gives best results, no problem with copper cpu cooler.

Just curious! Was talking to someone the other day who did the same. Either way, nice build! +1

Ha nice

That GPU sag though

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Measured it, 1 degree! Damn u, Hawk-Eye! https://imgur.com/a/eNbpd6X

It looked pretty obvious from one shot you had

why the 911 part?

Glad I'm not the only one wondering lol

911 is a Porsche, but I see no reference to one in his photos.

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Just a random name i came up with for that build. For me its like a turbo after using 2500k and gtx960. Nothing to interpret here...and yes, 911 still is an iconic porsche

Judging by your provided pictures, I would remove the CPU cooler ASAP and remove every bit of the Conductonaut. You need actual thermal paste not liquid metal

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Interesting, but where is your point? Why?

The Fractal Design S24 coldplate is copper according to Fractal Design's website, which means liquid metal is fine to use. The only issue the gallium in the liquid metal will migrate into the copper coldplate and permanently stain it over time, but this will not effect cooling performance. The S24 isn't the best 240mm AIO liquid cooler, but it provides temperature results similar to a Noctua NH-D15, which makes it decent.

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Thanks, and yes i already knew those facts, but chose the S24, because i wanted to try AiO without too much RGB overload overall and it also has good solution for fan connection with its nice little hub. Installation was really easy and clean, temperature results with NF-A12 Noctuas are fine aswell.

See my above comment. Not trying to throw shade just giving advice.

LM is great between the DIE and IHS, but yields no advantages on top of the IHS. And its known to dry out much quicker. In some cases 8-10 months.

My biggest concern though was the application. LM does not spread like thermal compound and simply adding a drop and installing the cooler will not suffice. Your CPU will not be cooled properly.

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

Now i see your concern :) No, of course i did spread the LM on the IHS completely into every corner and also applied the same way onto the copper of aio cooler. I am using LM since the early days, also used it with my i5-2500k when Coollaboratory LM came out. Used it for years without refreshing and didnt have performance or "dry out" issues at all. So you dont need to delid your cpu if its already soldered and it still will give you 1-3 degrees performance, but for me i was just used to it and it was easy to apply. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/thermal-paste-comparison,5108-8.html http://www.thermal-grizzly.com/en/products/26-conductonaut-en

Easy to apply?! Man I hated applying mine when I delidded my 8600k lol. Maybe it's easier on the IHS?

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Yes, much easier because you have more space to apply with cotton stick

eesti 1 point 1 month ago

it's literally just a different thermal conductant

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

it literally works just as fine with copper aio coolers as with copper air coolers

Broxx 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Sure it is but that doesn't mean it's meant to be in between an IHS and water block. LM is known to cause issues when paired between the two and yields no advantage what so ever over thermal compounds.

Not to mention it's meant to be spread. in OP's case, there is no way that CPU is being cooled properly by simply adding a dab and installing the block.

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

See my above comment. No issues when paired between IHS and water cooling block if you check that it is copper or a nickel plated surface. Also check Simulints comment above.

Where were you able to purchase a Samsung 970 Evo Plus?

EyeamEJ 1 point 1 month ago

They have them in stock on B&H

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

In Germany, my friend :)

outtykid 1 point 1 month ago

How is the Evo plus performing for you? I want to get one but I'm also looking at the WD black sn750

ediZZo submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

It's doing a gread job, installing Windows was very fast, Boottime or loading Gamefiles also very fast. Especially unzipping big archive files or general shifting big files is where this Nvme will shine.
