    When a tech show goes all reality on you.
    Didn't comprehend what you said while you were dangling the shoelace in your hoodie in front of your open-air fan setup. Flashbacks to the shop towel rang thru my head, but I made it to the end and saw your score....Congrats!
    Now, is the next video in this line gonna cover what gains might be had if you two put some thought into it?
    TOP for your heat exchanger igloo.....plexi with some fittings from hardware store a sound investment.
    cooling pump on before boot?
    If you really want to play with this setup, install a variable resistor across all three of those legs in place of the "governing" resistors you shunted and give yourself terminals you can monitor the output voltages while you twist your knobs.
    And if you haven't thought about it already....lose the extension cord.
    Good luck,
    Glad you and your gear survived this production.

    I wonder if they built a custom airtight enclosure with a dehumidifier if it would remove the condensation. Since there would be no airflow due to it being airtight, just watercool everything running the hoses to a chiller on the outside.

  • Michael Bauers

    I ask this question honestly, because I just went through some weeks of googling, watching videos, thinking and in general soul searching how to address my problem of having two GTX 980 in SLI, one of which has fan with a broken blade, and the vibration is getting worse. (1) Replace fan, seems like too much time and money spent finding exact replacement fan; (2) Get two GTX 1070, and run in SLI, but tired of all the SLI issues; (3) Get a GTX 1080 TI...too expensive; (4) Get a 1080, but prices are stupid high for a used card, and I don't trust used video cards ( abused my own cards way too often to trust what other people are doing with their cards); (5) Get the MD card...tempting, but something didn't quite impress me there; (6) Get an RTX 2070, which is fine for 2k, but iffy for 4k; (7) Just get an RTX 2080 because it will play 4K game, no SLI needed, no need to buy used, no need for annoying compromises; I chose 6, because I am tired of dealing with my video card issues, so waiting for something better performing was not a great option

    There's an easy way to make sure you don't have condensation issues. So long as you have enough cooling capacity on the high load stuff, put the whole rig in a freezer. ( I know you've talked about why freezers don't have the capacity to cool a whole system, but if you're using a chiller (which would have to go outside the freezer), then the freezer is just there to chill all the humidity out of the air, and the chiller will do the hard work). A modded freezer with holes in it for water chiller lines would be awesome.
