    Thermal
    Interface
    Material:
    CoolLaboratory Liquid Ultra Metal Paste

    Documentation:
  • Liquid Ultra Manual
  • Material Safety Data Sheet
     
    Product Description:
    After the overwhelming success of the Liquid Pro, the new Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra was developed. Of course the Liquid Ultra is also made of 100% metal, but it has an absolute new usability and offers an outstanding performance. Due to the paste-like texture the application is now very easy.
     
    The Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra was optimized for highest performance and optimal usability. The thermal compound consists to 100% of metal, but can be applied very easy with a commercial brush. The processor (Heatspreader) should be cleaned thoroughly before apply the Liquid Ultra, in order to eliminate dirt, old thermal compound or fat.
     
    Depending on the size of the Heatspreader, three to four division lines of Liquid Ultra should be applied centrically on the Heatspreader. Then the Liquid Ultra should be disposed slowly and without pressure on the Heatspreader. The less pressure is used when elapsing, the easier the Liquid Ultra can be applied. The Liquid Ultra has a pasty form, whereby the application goes very fast. Please pay attention to coat also the edges of the Heatspreaders. Therefore always use the same brush side. It is usually not necessary to apply more Liquid Ultra again for a commercial processor.
     
    When applying Liquid Metal, a little more care is necessary compared to the application of conventional pastes. If you are inexperienced in dealing with computer hardware you may wish to pick another paste that has less performance and less potential risks. (Liquid PRO is electrically conductive).

    Delidding
    Modification:
    DIY

    Concept:
    Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) removal then Thermal Interface Material (TIM) Upgrade for an average estimated 10c lower temperatures at 100% load.
     
    Intel has moved away from using the fluxless solder found in Sandy Bridge and is instead applying basic thermal interface material paste to join the chip's integrated heat spreader to the CPU die. Fluxless solder generally has a much improved thermal conductivity, typically in the range of 80W/mK, while a standard TIM paste has only 5W/mK, making the new solution potentially 16 times less efficient. With increasing die power densities, Ivy bridge should be even more demanding on thermal dissipation per metre, yet thanks to testing from a PC Watch investigator, where the Ivy Bridge TIM was replaced with aftermarket alternatives, it was proven that the stock TIM was the primary culprit in increased Ivy Bridge temperatures, with results showing stock temperature drops of up to 18 per cent and, temperature drops at 4GHz @ 1.2V of up to 23 per cent, using Coolaboratory TIM as an alternative paste.
     
    Better thermals allow the chip to sustain higher core voltages and core clock speeds thereby delivering greater performance.
     

    I used a thin razor blade to remove or "delid" the IHS from the CPU die

    Lapping
    Modification:
    DIY

    Concept:
    The process of lapping involves grinding down the top surface of your CPU's Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) and the bottom surface of your Air or Water Cooling Block. The theory is that the closer to perfectly flat that these two surfaces are, the better contact they will make thereby providing greater thermal transfer.
     
    The items I used to perform this were a very flat working surface, in this case a thick piece of glass, and diminishing grades of wet/dry sandpaper. I started with 220 grit sandpaper taped down to the glass sheet, held the IHS / Waterblock flat to it, and worked it back and forth rotating it every 15 round trip strokes. When the sandpaper began to clog up with residue, I was able to rinse it off as I used wet/dry sandpaper. You want to do the bulk of flattening with the 220 grade paper. Then move to 400, 800, and 1000 to get all remaining scratches out. 1500 grit is really not necessary but gives it a decent shine. That is far as I went. For a true mirror finish you will need to hit it with 2000 and also 2500 or 3000 as well.
     
    My starting temps were as follows:
    Intel i7-3770K overclocked to 4700mhz @ 1.340V delidded w/ Corsair H100 & Cool Laboratory Liquid Ultra. Prime95 Blend 8worker stable to over 12 hours. Temperatures (Core1/2/3/4): 73/88/84/83.
     
    My after lapping temps were as follows:
    Intel i7-3770K overclocked to 4700mhz @ 1.340V delidded w/ Corsair H100i & Cool Laboratory Liquid Ultra. Prime95 Blend 8worker stable to over 12 hours. Temperatures (Core1/2/3/4): 66/76/77/73.
     
    That is an 12 degree (celsius) reduction on the hottest running core. While I attribute a few degrees to the new and improved Corsair H100i (vs. the original H100), this is a very nice reduction in temps for minimal cost. As a result my goal of boosting the overclock by 200mhz should now be achievable.

    CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i Hydro Series Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

    Documentation:
  • Corsair H100i Manual
     
    So as luck would have it, a little over one week after I finished my build using the Corsair H100 cooler, Corsair releases (11.16.2012) a new iteration of the product...the H100i. It is a significant enough change for me to eBay my H100 and purchase the newer model.
     
    Here is a list of differences between the original H100 and the new H100i:
  • Corsair Link compatibility in the box, so you can just plug in the included USB cable into a motherboard USB 2.0 header and download the software. This allows you to create your own fan and noise profiles, and to adjust the RGB LED logo color on the front of the unit and even have it changed color based on temperature.
  • Moved from 4-pin "molex" power to a SATA power connector.
  • Upgraded cold plate
  • Upgraded impeller/bearing/motor design for lower noise pump unit.
  • Upgraded split-flow manifold design.
  • Upgraded to wider tubing with more flexibility, but retaining the same low evaporation rates.
  • Upgraded the fans to SP120L design. Same impeller as the SP120 retail, with a different housing. A high-torque motor keeps the fan spinning near its ideal RPM even with backpressure. The noise level of the units is significantly better than last year, as a result.
  • New Industrial Design.
  • Changed mounting mechanism for AMD/Intel bracket to be magnetic, so you can swap out the tops without any screws.
     
    Extreme Performance CPU Cooling:
    Have a PC case that supports a top-mounted 240mm radiator? Take your CPU cooling to a new level. H100i starts with the advanced design of the Hydro Series H80i, and adds a double-wide radiator for even better performance.
     
    Self-contained Cooling System:
    Hydro Series H100i comes pre-filled, and never needs refilling or priming.
     
    Dual Radiator with Custom Fan Design:
    The 240mm top-mounted radiator provides maximum surface area for maximum cooling power. The 120mm fans use wide, low-pitch blades for better static pressure to noise ratio, offering improved efficiency at lower noise levels.
     
    Built-In Corsair Link Monitoring and Control:
    Monitor temperature and control lighting and fan speed on your screen. No additional hardware is necessary. Just connect the included Corsair Link cable to a USB header on your motherboard and download the free Corsair Link Dashboard software. You can monitor coolant temperature and adjust cooling performance directly from your desktop.

    Fans: Corsair Hydro Series SP120L 2700 RPM Replacement PWM Fans

    My Corsair C70 Vengenance case came stock with 3 3-pin 1200rpm case fans. One was mounted on the rear as an exhaust fan and two up front on the hard drive bays mounted with a pull configuration.
     
    My Corsair H100i CPU Cooler came with two 3-pin 2700rpm fans which I mounted in a push configuration to exhaust the hot radiator's air out of the case.
     
    The H100i's 3-pin SP120L fans are known to experience a high pitched whine and/or grinding noise in certain configurations and conditions. Luckily they came out with a replacement product which corrected the issue, though it did take them around 4 months to do so.
     
    At the time that I obtained two 4-pin PWM SP120L replacement fans for the H100i cooler, I decided why not purchase a few more (for a total of six SP120L's) and replace all the fans inside my case. The first reason was to obtain better airflow within the case. Upgrading to 2700rpm fans over the stock 1200rpm case fans will do that albeit with more noise at full speed. At this time I also added one of these fans as a bottom mounted intake fan for a more balanced airflow since I would then have three for intake (bottom and two front fans) and three for exhaust (rear and two top mounted radiator fans). Also, having SP (Static Pressure) type fans would be better than Airflow type up front where the air needs to be drawn over the hard drive bays.
     
    The second reason was for better fan control using the CorsairLink2 software product. My original fans were all of the 3-pin type. 3-pin fans have three wires which are for Ground, +12V Power and Sense which reports the actual speed of the fan. These new 4-pin fans are PWM controlled. PWM stands for Pulse-width modulation. They have four wires as follows; Ground, +12V Power, Sense and Control. 3-pin fans can vary their speed by reducing or increasing the voltage sent to the Power wire. 4-pin fans always have their power fixed at 12V, but vary their speed by turning the switch between supply and load on and off at a fast pace to adjust the rotation speed on the fly without changing the input voltage delivered to the fan.
     
    CorsairLink2 is a dashboard sortware product that allows you to monitor your Corsair H100i CPU Cooler and fans attached to it as well as other hardware such as SMART drives and GPU's. The fans get plugged into the power header that is located on top of the H100i's pump. There are two ports on this power header. The H100i comes with two 4-pin PWM fan Y cables included. This is so you can use a total of four fans with your H100i, typically for two on each side of the radiator for a push/pull configuration.
     
    What I decided to do was to order four more SP120L PWM fans for a total of six at $15 each. Then I purchased two additional 12" long 4-pin PWM fan black sleeved Y cables by OKGEAR Model FC444PWM-12BKS at $5 each. I left the two fans that are mounted to the H100i radiator wired to the Corsair Y cable that connects to one of the power ports. The other remaining power port first has the Corsair Y cable in it, then an OKGear Y cable at each end of that for a total of 4 PWM fans running off this one port.
     
    When purchasing a PWM type Y splitter cable it will have 1 Female and 2 Male PWM Connectors. For it to work correctly you need to ensure that only one of the male connectors has the 4th Control Wire for accurate fan speed and readings.
     
    Now I can control and monitor all six fans via the CorsairLink2 software (screenshots below).

    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1866 CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10R

    Overview
     
    Great Looking, Great Overclocking Memory at a Great Price.
    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory modules are designed with overclockers in mind. Vengeance DIMMs are built using RAM specially selected for their high-performance potential. Aluminum heat spreaders help dissipate heat, and provide the aggressive look that you want in your gaming rig. As a bonus, the attractive low price of Vengeance memory will also leave lots of room in your system build budget.
     
    Seriouis About PC Memory? So are we.
    Like the legendary Dominator, enthusiast-grade Vengeance DRAM is designed for stability, stringently factory-tested, and backed by our limited lifetime warranty. And, we know that great looks are as important as great performance. This is why Vengeance modules come in a variety of colors to match your components and let you build your system just the way you want it.
     
    Superior Overclockability Through Careful Screening.
    Overclocking your components can be a fun and rewarding way of pushing your gaming PC to its performance limits. Vengeance can help make this happen. Before each module is assembled, the DRAM chips are individually screened not only to ensure reliable meeting performance specifications, but to allow generous headroom for stable overclocking.
     
    Optimized for Compatibility with the Latest CPUs and Motherboards.
    Vengeance memory is designed specifically for the latest CPUs. Vengeance modules are available in 1.5V and 1.35V configurations for maximum compatibility with all Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors, as well as the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family. With dual channel, triple channel, and quad channel kits, there's a Vengeance configuration that's perfect for your motherboard.
     
    XMP Memory Profile for Simple, Safe Overclocking.
    Vengeance memory supports the Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) standard, and each module is individually factory-programmed with an XMP profile indicating supported timing, frequency and voltages. Just enable XMP on your compatible motherboard and you'll automatically get optimized memory overclocking without having to deal with multiple BIOS settings. Of course, if you're an experienced overclocker — or an aspiring one — you can adjust the settings to push for even higher performance.
     
    Designed for Enthusiasts. Backed by Corsair.
    There's a reason why world-champion overclockers, extreme gaming enthusiasts and high-end system builders all trust Corsair for high-performance memory that they can install with confidence and pride.

    Power Supply: Corsair HX750 Gold Certified Modular PSU

    Description:
     
    HX Series Modular Power Supplies: Legendary Performance and Reliability
    Quiet operation at low loads, modular cabling and 80 PLUS® Gold efficiency makes HX Series PSUs a great choice for high-performance PCs.
     
    Quiet operation at low loads
    Basic PC power supplies have fans that spin whenever your PC is on – whether you’re pushing your graphics card to the limit or just surfing the web. HX Series power supplies are smarter than that: they generate less heat, so they require less cooling, and the thermally controlled fan only spins when it’s needed.
     
    Slay the cable kraken
    The modular cable set allows you to use only the cables you need for your particular set of components. There’s no more unwieldy mythical tentacled monstrosity of unused cables to clutter up the inside of your case.
     
    High efficiency – Low heat.
    Efficiency is the measurement of how well a power supply converts the AC power from your outlet to the DC power used by your PC’s components. If your power supply isn’t efficient, it will generate more heat, which requires more cooling and more fan noise. And, it might even affect your power bill. HX Series PSUs are among the most efficient on the market. They help keep your PC cool and quiet, and your power bill down.

    These 5.25" Optical Drive Bay Storage Drawer Boxes are a great way to utilize your unused computer drive bays. I ordered two and modified them to my liking and needs.
     
    Features:
  • One touch open spring loaded tray
  • Fits into any 5.25” bay
  • Fix by screw, easily assembly
  • Easy installation and removable tray
  • Includes Mounting screws
     





    Modifications:
  • Use Computer case drive bay cover faceplate for a stealth factory stock look.
  • Add thin carpeting to all areas of the storage container to eliminate movement of stored objects and associated noise.
  • Make drawer easily removable. There is a factory installed drawer stop, that prevents the drawer from opening all the way. While this is designed to add stability to the drawer it makes it very inconvienent to reach the last few inches of the drawer and also prevents easy removal to organize stored objects.
  • Drill mounting holes in precise location for flush mounted look of drawer with thicker overlayed computer case faceplate.

    Speaker System: Harman Kardon HK-695 Surround Sound Speakers with Subwoofer

    Documentation:
  • Harman Kardon HK695.pdf
     
    Highlights:
    The Harman Multimedia Odyssey I transducer is designed specifically for extremely small speaker enclosures while providing significant mid bass. In addition to the bass, the small, rigid and light inverted aluminum cone provides performance that will rival most tweeters used in multimedia speakers today. Small and elegant satellite speaker that perfectly integrates with the subwoofer while providing superior midrange and highs. The Magnum series subwoofer transducer provides deep bass from a small enclosure.
     
    Overview:
    The HK695 Audio System is the latest innovation from Harman Kardon. Harman Kardon’s audio heritage combined with continual research has provided the unique technologies included in the HK695 Audio System. These technologies include Vmax, a Harman International audio image-processing algorithm that seamlessly supports both two and four channel sound cards. This audio hologram creates a four speaker sound field from two speakers through the use of a head related transfer function when used with a four channel sound card. In addition, the algorithm provides enhanced stereo when used with a two channel sound card. The system includes two desktop speakers and a subwoofer that can be placed either on the floor or on your desk. Both satellite speakers and the subwoofer are magnetically shielded to provide protection against computer monitor image distortion.

    Network Switch: IOGear GUB212 2-Port USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch

     
    Description:
    I purchased this USB switch in order to easily share my USB Keyboard and USB Mouse with both my Desktop and Laptop (with Docking Station) Computers.
     
    I have two inputs on my big screen monitor which allows that to be shared between the two computers. But to share the keyboard and mouse, this USB Swith is additionally needed. By connecting the single USB 'A' port on this device to my monitors USB Hub, I can then plug my keyboard and mouse into the USB hub. Then you connect each one of the two USB 'B' Ports on the switch to the desktop and laptop respectively. You can then simply select using the 1-2 manual switch on top of the device to switch between the two computers. You would then still need to switch the monitors input accordingly, but much cheaper than purchasing a KVM switch.
     
    Manufacturer Description:
    Share a USB device with 2 computers
    IOGEAR's 2-Port USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch enables two computers to easily share one USB device such as a printer, scanner, hard drive camera, etc. The GUB212 2-Port USB 2.0 Peripheral Sharing Switch features push-button switching so there's no software to install, and works right out of the box. The GUB212 is not OS dependent so it is compatible with any computer running at least a USB 1.1 or higher host controller and an operating system with the corresponding USB 1.1 or higher drivers. *In plain English, you can share nearly any USB device between nearly any two computers without doing anything except plugging it in. We add the caveat "nearly any" due to the fact that despite the backward compatibility of USB 3.0 devices, there are some that just cannot work with USB 2.0 due to bandwidth limitations. That said, you can use most USB 3.0 hard drives and peripherals with the understanding that they will transfer data at USB 2.0 speeds. This means you can use the GUB212 with a USB 1.1 compatible devices and/or USB 1.1 equipped computers, but keep in mind the connection speeds will be limited to USB 1.1.
     
    What can this do for me?
    The GUB212 is great for small offices or home offices since you can share expensive peripherals instead of purchasing duplicates. Connect your USB device to the GUB212, then connect the included USB cables to each computer and a simple button press will switch your high-resolution scanner, 3D printer, webcam, barcode scanner, etc. from one computer to the other. The GUB212 can even share devices between computers running different operating systems. Want to share a keyboard and mouse between your MacBook and Raspberry Pi? No problem, add a USB hub like the IOGEAR GUH285 and the GUB212 will switch them back and forth easily.

    Home Network: Home Network

    Here is my home network. I created the network diagram using Microsoft's Visio 2010. The network currently uses over 1,200 feet of Cat5e wire. I performed the installation myself all within the existing walls of a 50+ year old home. I used Cat5e for both the ethernet network wiring as well as the telephone system. This way, if need be, a wire can be re-purposed at the network patch panel at any time.
     
    For the Cat5e wire I used UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) CMR (Communications Riser) 24 AWG Solid Conductor (not stranded) cable. The 'R' in CRM is for 'Riser'. Riser type cables are engineered to prevent the spread of fire from floor to floor and are suitable for vertical shaft applications. CMR cable cannot be used in ducts or plenums. In that case you would need CMP Plenum cable.
     
    For the Coaxial cables I used Carol C5785.38.01 RG6/U Quad Shield Coax 18 AWG Solid Conductor 75ohm.
