    I was happy running with 2990wx overclocking and Vega 64 crossfire before while it was taking 1200w from my AX1600i. And I am quite upset with my 2950x and Radeon vii alone and only 600 w below.

    Pointing a fan directly to the insulated socket just gets more air in it, thus forcing more condensation. It's better to leave it alone!

    rewire the compressor to be always on, use ethanol as a coolant, and get the temps below freezing so you don't have to worry about condensation as much

  • reaction9449
    reaction9449 26 days ago

    What might be a good idea for this would be to use much longer tubes and put the pump and cooler in a different room, you wouldn’t hear that obnoxious noise and I’m sure there still would be plenty of power in the cooler to cool that machine with the tubing being as long as you need it, just an idea, 3ft of tubing with that cooler on the lowest might be to cold making the condensation but maybe with that cooler and pump 20ft or whatever away at the lowest setting might be closer to your results with it at 60, if y’all catch my drift. Maybe something to think of or try, might seem like a stupid idea but no ones saying it’s practical but if you wanted to test it to see that’s up to y’all

    You can easily insulate those lines with something called tundra insulation that is available at plumbing supply stores. Its black foam and flexible like the tubes.... kinda. It will keep the condensation from forming on the lines. The water block is a different story. A coating of some sort of foam cut and glued on might do the trick.
