post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So first I like to start of by saying I have enjoyed reading all the information on this forum, and this computer was designed and built from all the great information here wink.gif

I have had a regular computer before, but once I started to get into gaming on the PC that when I realized my old computer was insufficient. I first just added a HD 5770, and thought that will make my gaming experience amazing, but then I soon realized I was such a NOOB eek.gif

So the local computer store guy recommended me to come on this site, and little behold I was open to the world of computing world.

So enough introduction and talking here are the goods:

[CPU]: i5-2500K @ 4.5 ghz @ 1.355v Daily

[CPU cooling]: Thermalright HR-02 without any fans.

[Motherboard]: Gigabyte Z68X-UD4-B3

[Memory Ram]: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4GB 1600 mhz

[GPU]: EVGA GTX 580 SC DS

[Storage]: OCZ Vertez 2 E 120GB

[DVD ROM]: Samsung DVD-RW

[Power Supply]: Corsair AX850

[Case]: Corsair Graphite 600T SE

[Case cooling] Gentle Tyhoon AP-13 exhaust only

So what do you guys think? I love this computer and now I can enjoy all the games at highest setting and at its full potential cool.gif

[Motherboard]: ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z

[Memory Ram]: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4GB 1600 mhz

[GPU]: MSI GTX 580 Lightning Extreme Edition EVGA GTX 560 Ti FTW 448 core (Down grade to prepare for the new Nvidia series next year thumb.gif)

I actually spent almost everyday last week reading up on water cooling. That might be my next project in the summer when cash flow is better

620 cooler or the power supply.

cooler: loud fan, very loud fan. I switched it up to a gentle typhoon. pump sound you can hear, and gets louder as higher load on your cpu. in the case now that is 2-3 ft away can't really hear the pump sound, but with the side panel off and your ear to it, yes you can hear it.

power supply: no sound at all

Sorry I meant the cooler. Do you think you had a gimped fan? And I'm assuming you bought from NCIX.. I was reading that they had a batch with broken but usable pumps that were extra loud.

Now I'm scared cause I ordered mine from NCIX ahh...

And where the heck did you get AP-13s?

Nope got it from Memory Express. I got the AP-13 from them also, I have all three connected to the fan controller built in the case. I usually have it crank to the lowest setting and they are barely noticeable at night time, and silent during day time. When I do game I just crank up them up to highest setting and it does the job. Still can barely hear them, but then my 2 GPU fans roar like thunder under load.

Its only rated at 1150 rpm, but pushes enough air to cool my cpu at 4.2 ghz at idle temps of 32C and on prime95 at <60C. So I don't know if those are normal temperatures for the Antec 620 Kulher or not.
