Thanks again for your response.

I don't own an AX750 yet - I just plan to buy it. That's why I am not 100 % certain that it blows out hot air of the backplate (by the AC-plug).

Best,
Peter

It seems to be motherboard based (I'm getting my mobo first to take accurate measurements) but for instance in the post you linked to, which I also referred to, he used a Gigabyte and was just able to clear the GPU but if you read a few posts back lightsout unfortunately wasn't able to fit his GPU in the top slot with the Silver Arrow. Generally any cooler 120mm wide or less shouldn't be an issue but once you get into the realm of 135mm+ I would be cautious that, based on motherboard variation, the cooler might not fit.
Thx! I never realized the 16x slot was closer on mATX boards. I thought why not go mATX since I won't need room for more than one graphics card and if I ever go multiple I can surely afford a new mobo if I can afford all that gpu goodness. Criteria for choosing was 'Asus + red details' and that's why V Gene smile.gif. It's a great board and I don't need ATX so I'll continue looking for coolers. Think I'll skip the TJ08 for now and go with ATX size case instead.

Just to be clear I had the silver arrow SB-E. The new version. The regular may fit. I will never know as I am returning it and getting the Antec 920. It's just a lot easier to deal with in this case.

Yup thats right. Technically you can add a 240mm to make an h100, or for a case the size of the tj08-e either the 180/200mm radiator or two 120mm radiators, its up to you. I have thought about going with a 180mm radiator up front but I already have another 120mm to put in the loop. Honestly a single 120mm does fine though. Adding another radiator helps but even then THE HOTTEST my 2500k at 4.8ghz/1.408v gets on bf3 64player is around 56C in 74F ambient. When I had 80F ambient temps got into the 65-68C range when gaming.

So whats your max prime temp? Like realtemp peak after an extended run? Just trying to figure out what I should be expecting.

So also do you think push pull really makes a difference? The 920 I got only comes with one fan. In my testing p/p never seemed to help a whole lot. I have a good fan I want to use on it. Actually I have a bunch but no matching ones. At least none that are quiet. I will probably run miss matched fans though. Done it before without issue.

Man I dont remember what ambient was here but I think it was probably 72-74F and max was 70C on the hottest core after a 2hr run on prime earlier this month with the tj08-e.

338

EDIT----
Another point I cant remember but I think this was with standard air flow, meaning front as intake. I might run it again just to be sure since now the front is exhaust. It makes a difference though. I have before and after temps with bf3 gaming. CPU temps went from 63c to 56c from the radiator being the intake

Dang those are excellent temps. I'm honestly expecting over 70. But would be way stoked if I could get under it. I wonder how much the added res helps.

Thanks dude. I really cant wait to see what you get with a 2600k on it though, hope similar results. I would also run a p/p setup, I wouldnt worry about the fans so long as speeds are close. Might get some fan blade pitch noises if one is over powering the other but gotta try to find out.

I dont think the resivour is big enough to make a big difference but its also right next to my gpu so it doesnt really get to cool off that way either but temps are good so Im keeping it there since I like the location. The first 30mins the resivour might make a difference though. What I originally noticed when I added the resivour back on my 1100T was that it allowed the cpu to stay a little cooler in the beginning but it eventually got to normal temps in comparrison to the stock unit. It helped a bit on normal use but gaming sessions around 1hr or stress testing and it doesnt make a difference, just slows the time max temp is reached. If I had a lot more fluid then it would be even better. I really wanted a drive bay resivour for the tj08-e but didnt want to give up a bay slot for that. I might add a cylinder resivour in the future though.

I will eventually put the other radiator back in, just need a day Im bored. I also still want more "data" on how it performs with one radiator vs both as well in the tj08.

edit:
Wait Im not sure how the antec onboard logic would deal with mismatched fans though. If you want the software control which is one of the best things about the 920 you might need matching fans. That said my fans arent stock, they are the CM excaliber units, not really cheap but much more quiet than the stock ones and performance is close to or equal to the loud stock ones. What I like it that with the ones I have I can dial my custom settings to run around 40% and still be pretty quiet.

I have one ssd, one 500gb hdd, one 2TB hdd and one laptop 2,5" hdd. Which way should I mount these for best airflow? How is the airflow for the 180mm affected if I have the cage filled with storage?
