Pioneers of Eco Friendly Home Wi-Fi
DIR 855 - Eco Friendly Wi-FiD-Link have announced a new range of routers which promise to be capable of reducing energy usage by upto 40%. The new routers integrate D-Link Green Ethernet, an innovative energy-saving technology that automatically detects connectivity status and cable length, and then adjusts power accordingly. The routers also feature Wi-Fi scheduling that allows users to easily program when the Wi-Fi radio signals are turned on and off to further save energy consumption.
There are currently two products which utilise the new features, the Wireless N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) and the new Wireless N Quad Band Gigabit Router (DIR-855). If you've already purchased the DIR-655 or DIR-855 and don't have the power-saving options available, you can take advantage of these new features via the green firmware release available at www.dlink.co.uk/support.
This may be something that catches on with router manufacturers, and I wouldn't be surprised if others release 'green' firmware updates.

Not sure how your rig pulls 3kw as you only have a 650watt supply. Splitting the loop will be the best plan as you will be able to use a rad for each.

I think what is happening is at cool boot everything is running at good temps. But once you start working on the rig the temps of the water rises and the rad just cannot cope with it. So you get your temps.

But once your temps are fine.. so really you could just leave it. ;)

As I have already said the rad cannot cope with the amount of heat produced.

So Messy :eyes:

HA HA HA HA!!! messy isnt the word, talk about serious flow restriction, travelling to the centre of the earth would be more easily navigated then this.

DUDE!! Take out some parts, or make it into 2 loops....

1st the combined heat dissapation for the rads is 3kw meaning since the comp is only producing roughly half that the temps shudnt be this high. 2nd any experienced enthusiest will tell u temps higher than stock on a water loop is far from fine especialy when oc'ing.
