EH "HYDRO MADNESS"

EH "HYDRO MADNESS" is a unique machine which we started working on in 2021. In principle, it was supposed to be a massive open structure with the character of the "plumber's nightmare". Extremely complicated LC system, the length of the pipes exceeded a total of several meters, and the longest of them all reached 150 cm in length.
During the construction, we tested various concepts and introduced many changes, finally we gave up a few connections that reduced the flow, and had only an aesthetic role. The flow meter has also been removed for a more efficient system routing.

For several months now, the machine has proudly decorated the room in which it is located and serves as one of the fundamental components for an advanced racing simulator. The project was made for an automotive enthusiast and at the same time a master of the steering wheel, who successfully wins car races on the tracks used for this purpose in the real world. In the virtual one, he gradually trains his reflexes and experiments using an extensive simracing system, cabin, actuators, etc.


One of the main assumptions of the EH "HYDRO MADNESS" project was to use a unique motherboard from the ROG stable, the Z590 Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial model, i.e. a modified Maximus XIII Extreme equipped with an ultra-block that allows for extremely effective cooling of both the CPU, VRM, chipset and the entire pcb motherboard.

In the project, we used as many as three D5 pumps working synchronously, because the massive distroplate devastatingly limited the flow in the system. Properly located pumps allowed to a great extent to compensate for flow drops and to drive the liquid stream efficiently so that the config would work as quietly, efficiently and as cool as possible.

The RTX 3090 FROSTBITE was also an element that was to be included in this project because this model was extremely liked by the enthusiast for whom the machine was created. The card, although with a low PT for a GA102-300 PT (375W) chip, positively surprises and allows for comfortable use of as many as three 65-inch 4K panels.

The meticulously tuned i9-11900K, combined with high-speed memories, which have naturally also been properly tuned, ensure very high performance, including 1% low, responsiveness and perform well in any task they are faced with.
The stable operation of the configuration is ensured by a proven design from the Corsair stable, i.e. the HX 1200 model.

The uniqueness of the design is emphasized by the versatile mirrors used in combination with lighting and a colorless liquid moving through the system, enhancing the visual experience and exposing light reflections.

It is very possible that there will also be another version of "HYDRO MADNESS", even more powerful and advanced, based on the next Glacial album under Meteor Lake, as long as such an album appears naturally, which is very likely, however. The design will be characterized by an even more powerful cooling system, dimensions and will be improved in every possible way.
