World of Warcraft sequel in the works
 
Blizzard fans were understandably happy when Diablo III was unveiled last week and must be feeling quite spoilt. Blizzard VP Rob Pardo couldn't resist kicking the Internet rumor mill into high gear one more time by confirming yet another unannounced project, and yes it's an MMO. 
 
In an interview with German site OnlineWelten during the Blizzard Worldwide Invitational, Pardo discussed Blizzard's continued success as a developer as well as the measured steps it has taken toward building its development teams. When he was asked about a recent job posting on Blizzard's site for a next generation MMO, Pardo smiled and said, "Yes, there is one more unknown project still in development."

Sadly, there weren't any further details beyond that, and Pardo also reminded the interviewers of Blizzard's well-known penchant for only releasing games that are finished, a policy that doesn't look to be changing anytime soon.
 
Could this unconfirmed MMO be the sequel to World of Warcraft?

so wat kind of temps do u get now. idk if this is true but wouldnt it have been better to use dual core rads instead of single core as they dissapate more heat faster.

GPU's temps are within a degree of each other at 65C when running Crysis at 1920x1200 high everything.

The CPU's cooling delta was not as good, I've seen max temps hit 54C when fully loaded -- only slightly better than what I had using air!

I don't know enough to know what the difference in the radiators would be, the HL BlackIce Pro III was described as a "2 Pass" radiator. Is that the same as dual core... I am guessing not.

Is there a radiator I could have used instead that would cool the 65C degree water coming out of the video cards better? I would love to get the CPU cooler and the NB/SB would like some water too... but I can't imagine adding them to the loop.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

i just finished a build using 2 of these : http://www.acousticpc.com/black_ice_xtream_II_radiator.html . one has fans on it the other doesnt (dont ask long story) im cooling nb, sb, cpu, gfx card, and one mosfet (other on air). and my temps are pretty nice (i the low 90s). the dual core should (cant say for sure) nock about 10 degrees off ur temps depending on ur room temp as they act as heatsinks for the liquid.

Yeah, that looks like a next gen version of what I used (though I used the 3x120 version). The one I wanted was the GT Stealth with X-Flow but it was "Out of Stock" when I was doing my build with no delivery date.

I didn't realize that Gen1 to Gen2 would make that big of a difference, 10 degrees is huge!

I notices HWLabs site shows a GTX Extreme model... http://www.hwlabs.com/gen2/gtx/gtx360.htm that would probably be my best bet.

Hmm... it has only been a month and now I am considering taking my water cooling loop apart to re-do it... my wife will love that!

well wat the wife doesnt know wont hurt u lol. but ya they're bigger so theres more metal to soak up more heat i got those though b/c i was low on cash but didnt want to scimp on cooling. but if u want cooling power for cheap try these (maybe 4 or 5 in series out side ur case) http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_310&products_id=4515 big bad liquid to metal heap sinks lol cheers.

Your setup looks great. A lot like the one I was planning on building. That being said, I have a few questoins for you.


  • How did you mount a 360mm rad in a cosmos 1000? It only comes with drilled ports for two 120s unlike the three 120s in the cosmos s.
  • If you modified the case to mount it what did you have to do?
  • Is there anything special about the T line that you have the fill port hooked into? IE is there anything other than gravity and a plug holding in the liquid?
  • How loud is it?
  • What size tube and barb did you use?


I'm going to have this beast hooked up to a 47inch LCD to double as a gaming rig and HTPC and don't want it to drown out the sound.

Thanks.

well unless u have the volume set to low on ur sound system i doubt that the loop will drown out the sound so u dont have to worry about that.

Thanks Frosty!

Happy to provide answers.

(And,) If you modified the case to mount it what did you have to do?

[COLOR="Navy"]Yes, two minor case mods were required.

First, to mount the 360 on the top, I used a hole cutting bit to allow airflow for the third fan in the top of the case. (I can provide a picture if you would like)

Second, to mount the rear fan and radiator I removed the ventilated fan guard on the rear of the case where the CPU is normally vented. This was a convex vent and prevented flush mounting of the radiator when I tried to mount directly to the rear. Wire clippers did the job!


Is there anything special about the T line that you have the fill port hooked into? IE is there anything other than gravity and a plug holding in the liquid?
No... truth be told I added that as an after-thought and it is only there so I can pressurize (with air) the line to drain the system if/when I need to... I disconnect the lower hose on the rear radiator and apply air pressure to the "fill port". Liquid drains out nicely (with only some minor bubbles left).

How loud is it?
Very quiet. The only fan I hear is from the PS -- the fans that came with the Cosmos are very quiet (amazingly). I wouldn't have any concerns in your environment.

What size tube and barb did you use?
Everything is 1/2" ID. Only word of caution is be careful that the O-Ring seals are perfectly centered and the seal is 100% when you tighten down the screw in barbs!!! Even a minor "off center" turns into a leak when you tighten them down all the way... = : (

Thanks for the info. Just knowing I can fit a tripple 120 rad in there helps a lot. I'm trying to research all this from Iraq to build the rig when I get home, and its hard when you only have pictures and reviews to go on. Some people fritter their hard earned deployment income on hot rod cars while I build uber gaming rigs. Your tax payer dollars at work!

First of all, thank you for your service. Know that I appreciate the sacrifices that you and the rest of our troops are making for your country. :hands:

If you have any other questions as you tear into your Cosmos 1000, either post on this thread or feel free to PM me... my pleasure to help.
