Hello,

I have another project.

I sent one of my Voodoo5 6000 Rev.3700A to http://liquid-extasy.de/

I ask him to build two Waterblocks for this card :

I don't wanna be bitching - but I'd like to know, why didn't you opt for a water inlet geometry guiding the water from the center of the card to the perimeter (i.e., injecting between the 2nd and 3rd GPU, guiding then split 50% left and right over #1 and #4, before exiting to the rear cooling plate)? This would result in more evenly spread temperatures compared in purely sequential cooling, which could perhaps benefit the overall stability.

Good idea but now the man who make the waterblocks have finished to draw their plans to build them.

Maybe in version 3 then, huh? :wink:

I am not sure, how big the effect would have been. Just wanted to know, if you had considered it, and if, what the reasons were not to do it. It will be a beautiful new dress for the old lady, anyway. (y)

As the power consumption of the chips are actually quite moderate by todays standards (about 30W each?), I doubt it makes much of a difference. And the thickness of the copper block also helps to even it out. But I agree that a central water supply may yield a slightly better temperature uniformity. But there is also a potential risk for an unevenly distributed water flow which may negate this advantage.

Cyphermaster
2012-03-19, 17:24:28
Uneven distribution could be to a big degree circumvented by a symmetrical design, e.g. central front inlet, splitting symmetric into two outlets/inlets to the rear cooler, which also symmetrically ends in an central single outlet.

But yes, 30W per chip is not too much, I agree - on the other hand, results on early Multicore-CPUs show, that even a small difference may be quite OC-critical. And the "goddess" is known for being bitchy... Maybe it would have helped, maybe not. I'm happy anyway for the initiative shown, I don't care to much about the possible/impossible last few MHz. Otherwise, one could also complain about possibly not optimized fin structures/ channel width, etc. etc., but that's really too much, I think.

30W is kinda overestimated. Google told me about 30W for the 5500.
Additionally an AGP-Port could only provide about 45W. Since a 6Pin-PCIe-Connector delivers 75W and (nonstandard) Molex-adapters use two of them, they should have a maximum of about 40W.
This yields to a maximum of about 80W for the whole 6k-Board.

Hello,

I love 3dfx and I want the best cooling system for The Voodoo5 6000.

I think it will be the best project never realized on this card.

What is the difference between the two revisons of the VSA 100 gpu?

StefanV
2012-07-15, 16:38:05
I think he runs the V5-6k with 200MHz - or more.

The 320 versions should be the shrinked version.
