post #5701 of 12377
the best way in my opinion is get fan controller,

I have 4 fans controlled by it and it has great esthetics as well to the build.

My fan controller also gives a sign when the fan is not working anymore, it has temperature sensors as well so i can monitor my temps in the case so when something runs hot i can see where the problem is and if so fix it.

Also i find it kinda need to adjust the fans by a button on the fan controller rolleyes.gif

Have fun.. I didn't wink.gif ... because is so damn awkward. But I slowly get used to crappy GB programming

I'm not. Only one of my 3 case fans (plus the CPU Cooler) are attched to the mobo and so at the mercy of BIOS control working correctly. The two other main case fans, (the 120s)
are attached to fan headers provided by the case, the only control on them is a dial, on the case which, needless to say, I just leave on full. Even on full blast they're almost inaudible so what do I care?. I'm no longer DL'ing tons of huge AVI's so the computer is never left on 24/7, or for the most part, unless I'm sitting in front of it.

What I thought I intended to say was on a "proportional basis" on (UD3 Rev3) a 40% OC with an 8core will genorate proportionally MORE heat than a 6core under the same roughly proportional 40% OC. Not true?redface.gif

I might have misunderstood what you were saying. No worries.

It's alive!! wheee.gif

I finally got that Thermalright HR-09U Type 2 VRM heat sink installed and running. I used 2 number 4 bolts with nylock nuts and some number 4 and #6 washers.
I also put a rubber foot between the motherboard and the case. Because this case has a huge hole for access to the CPU back there I could not exactly center it on the VRMs, but it is close.
All I have done so far is run OCCT medium data set for a few minutes to see where it stabilizes at and it looks to be 10C lower than before on TMPIN2 and the CPU package! wheee.gif
I took some pictures with a camera I don't know how to use. If they are useable I will post them.

Now it's party time! band.gif

well haven't we all mate thumb.gif

I lost my temper quite a view times on here LOL

I like to discuss in a normal and civil manor but i cant stand kids who are 18yo and act like they know it all and brag about their stuff -_-

mostly i discovered things myself because what another get is not always realistic because all hardware is different and that can sometimes explain the drift that people have on here, including me thumb.gif

OT: I havn't exactly lost my temper yet, it takes a lot for me to, well, lets just say I make a point not to LET myself get mad if at all possible places like this where I consider myself basically a guest. I've been a little frustrated a few times trying to express myself like an adult talking to other adults, (if you get my DRIFT). And that specifically has resulted in some overly sarcastic retorts which just end up being confusing and/or misunderstood by you guys since you all weren't privy to the "light-up" (of my fuse) But so far no one on this board has come close pushing my buttons. sure you can kinda tell after awhile (or sometimes instantly) who the kids are and who's probaly an old goat. (being the latter I get to say that!) but it's all good. So far everyone's been pretty classy/well mannered. nuff said.

anyway,
Hurricane, thanks for your support! cheers.gif

So once again it comes down to the question I face every year come early June... having already dialed my OC back to 3.6 to counteract the rising ambient temps in the house (today it was around 88 here, 30C for our friends abroad)... Even though I want to do a new build this winter, I'm still considering upgrading my current tower... at least by putting in a small water loop. My AZZA tower can support a 360mm rad if I gut the top cage area of the tower... and I'm thinking that while it might be overkill, I'll almost certainly be able to make use of a 360mm rad on my next build, so already having the CPU block, rad, pump, reservoir, and some of the tubing is going to cut down costs down the road. Or instead of the $500 or so a loop would cost (might as well include my GPU right, lol) I could always make the step up to a AIO 240mm loop... most of which are notorious for their high resistance, and weak pumps... with means less thermal transfer and louder fans...

Opinions?

I am most surely the polar opposite of a Hydro-cooling-cheerleader here. It's definitely not my area of expertise. HOWEVER that said, If I was looking to upgade, say just CPU and mobo, $500 would be enough to buy close to if not the best AMD-Chipset desktop-board and CPU money could buy. That's slightly more than double what I (just) paid for my FX6100 and UD3. Seems like a lot of money for a just a cooling solution. Bang for my buck I think I could put 5bills to better use. But maybe I'm just flashing my ignorance. I'm the first to admit I don't really know JACK about water-cooling, other than it's kind of expensive and it uses deionized water that doesn't conduct. That's about it.
