    As a teacher...I'm telling you...DO YOUR HOMEWORK...tzzz

    You're playing with your smartphone while I'm doing creative science...

    NOOB.

    I think we are getting a bit off topic now, with Jimmy being quite rude. We all appreciate your expertise in water cooling. If you explain to us why what you have done is better than what Tig says would be a better educative reading instead of attacking someone. Tig is famous over here - see his reputation. While yours is quite low if I were you I'd be more polite. My interest in reading this thread is slowly disappearing and others may have the same feeling.

    To be honest, me too.
    That's why I'm in no forums anymore.

    People come to me tell me that an extended HEAT SINK won't work.

    Sure, 1+1= 3

    No comment anymore.
    I just don't get it....How can somebody that ..... .

    Btw. I've seen many people with 30000 comments and so on, who just talking ********.

    I'm out.

    And again if I were you I'd really think about what you've wrote. A cube can have sides with different colors.

    To be honest again...you're intelligence hurts a lot.

    If you want hot leds and low efficiency...blablabla

    This was my last comment. PERIOD.

    Just FYI, read my previous posts, nowhere did I say anything about anything "not working".

The thermal paste (I'm actually guessing you used epoxy) is plenty for transfer to that monster heat sink. Great idea there if your cranking this things output way up. Keep that driver from burning out easily.

    I think I missed it, what did you crank the emitters up to?

    I'm sure you know just nothing about thermal paste, heat transfer and THE ALREADY WORKING SSX2.

    You're the only one who is asking such "stupid" questions.

    Do you know how a heat sink works? Difference with a lapped one?
    Do you ever have any thermal paste (long time) results?
    How much pc hardware did you overclocked?


    I'm a nice, chilled guy, mostly...
    and there are NO stupid questions.

    Next time, think twice before asking for already responded questions.

    Oh, I got "rude warning" msg for responding to stupid questions.

    I'm in a wrong forum AGAIN.

    pff...NOOBS

    Could some posts here get deleted to keep it informative and educational and not personal? ;-)

    Select those posts and ask moderators. They should be able to clear them, at least.

    Should we also start new thread about SSX2? This one is pretty loooong.

    Today I got my SolarStorm X2.
    I want to give it higher power.
    Which components do I need?
    What can be max power to me the Led does not burn off?
    Genuine SolarStorm X2 from Kaidomain.
    Is that the original driver or a reproduction?

    The 2 silver pills have a thickness of 21.5cm and a height of 14.5cm.
    On the Leds are Insulation Gaskets for XML Leds.

    Furthermore, I would like to change the optics, but do not know if it makes sense. I thought of the Leddna synonymous for the Yinding fit?
    Are there perhaps comparative photos with original optics and the lenses Leddna with different degrees?
    I already take care of the heat transfer with copper sleeves and Copper Backplates.
    And new heat transfer paste MX4.
    Thanks

    Looks like R8 and R9 are your sense resistors, but I don't know what the sense voltage is (do you see an LEDA chip?). I also don't see an FET; is it under the coil? Someone with more electronics expertise is going to have to chime in on what current-limiting components are on that driver. How many amps does it draw off a full charged pack right now? I have no idea if it's an "original driver" - doubt it though.

    Do LEDDNA optics fit the X2? I don't remember anyone putting them in one. I think most people like the throwy beam pattern the stock reflectors give.

    Also, it looks like there is no solid wall behind the emitters (I believe that is the back of the aluminum pcb we see in that last pic. I wouldn't push these LEDs hard without trying to get a better thermal path. Try pressing in some copper pipe caps -see this BLF thread showing that very mod. EDIT - you updated your post after I posted this.

    As I can see there are two sense resistors R250 and R350 which in parallel acts as one 0.146 Ohm. LEDA chips has tipicaly 0.25V feedback voltage so:

    0.25 / 0.146 = 1.71A to the leds

    Can't recall if leds are connected in seriesor in parallel, but I would say in series.
    Adding R500 would raise the curent to 2.21A, R400 to 2.34A or R330 to 2.47A. I would not go to more than 2.3A beacuse of rather poor thermal transfer and relative small housing. Adding thermal compound on leds PCB is mandatory. Better yet what Garry suggested, adding some copper behind the led pcb.

    Diode SS34 and fet A09T should be sufficient, AFAIK.

    Once I've managed to replace reflectors with LED-DNA optics, but it was 2 years ago and I don't know which iteration of SSX2 I've got at that time. It was pure luck I think.
    If you have optics at hand you should try it out.

    I see gecco added pics showing underneath of coil.

    Ledoman - it's an R250 and R300, so 0.136 ohms so 0.25/0.136 = 1.84A to the leds. Adding an R500 would give 2.33A, an R400 gives 2.46A, an R330 gives 2.59A.

    Opps, thanks Garry, Don't know how I missed it. So R500 is the one I would use in this case.
