Simple, clean and honest-to-god
I love the 5850 (best videocard made 2009-2010 in my opinion) and the Earthwatts series PSU also. I have a 650 on a different build and that thing is solid!

I just upgraded my motherboard to a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 and got 4GB of G.Skill ECO CL7 1600 RAM. I also got rid of my IDE drive and upgraded it to a 750GB WD Black. I did a lot of work on cable management too. I need a CPU power extension cable though to make it look cleaner and still need to work on some wiring elsewhere. Overall, it looks MUCH better than what it looked like before though.

Does anyone know if putting a fan in the 80mm area behind the CPU on the motherboard tray actually helps with temperatures?

And, if it is helpful, can anyone recommend a good fan? There seems to be no way to filter for 80mm fans that aren't deep in dimension (80mm x 15mm) on newegg.

EDIT: I found some on newegg, but the selection is pretty terrible.

apparently it makes zero difference to CPU temps but i like the idea of removing all that hot air behind the board. it probably doesn't matter though; boards would have to be designed to take it and millions of them have survived and are surviving without it

Long time reader, first time poster.







i7 930@4.0ghz, Asus P6T Deluxe V2,Sapphire 5870 @1000mhz/1275mhz
Koolance cpu-360 block, koolance ar587 block, black ice extreme 240 in
push/pull, Liang D5 pump,silly DD res i regret buying..

Cut the top of the case out to mount the radiator (Have some pics of this part but they are crappy mobile phone ones). Used some rubbing lining around all the metal holes i cut. Cut all the layers of dust filtering out bar the outer mesh layer.

This is my first water cooling build of this magnitude, only messed with prefab systems before, gonna get some angled connectors now that i know exactly how things are flowing in my case, also considering mounting my pump under my vid card and going into the card first, thoughts?

Probably going to paint some things gloss red, like the video card backplate, ram fan housing, and a Koolance pump top when i buy it Also plan on getting a decent 120x2 fan grill for the top, something thats not too restrictive but saves fingers from those Scythes
