Looks Great! thumb.gif

Looks like it might be a bit much TIM, but hard to tell. As long as it isn't oozing all over you are fine. biggrin.gif

Alright, i will keep that in mind when I new mobo gets here Monday, seem like a rice grain size would be just enough and anything more is overkill.

My biggest problem right now is ASRock's fan control have only a cruise speed and a full throttle speed so when I run benchmarks it will automatically run both my PH-140s at 1366 RPM each which is kinda noisy even in a R4, thing should get better when I replace(resale to a friend) my Extreme 4 with a ASUS Z77-V with Fan Xpert2, I considered Speedfan but I heard its temperature sensor isn't that accurate so I opted to firmware.

I have ordered a black CPU cooler about two weeks ago and still no ETA (from digitec in Switzerland).
Should I cancel it in order to change the color (I don't have a window in my tower anyway...) or will they come in a near future ?

Why don't you contacted digitec and asked them what's happening?

I didn't because the item is listed as in request from there part and waiting for update (it's only the case for the black one which was my question here to know if you know if Phanteks have began to sell black's one).

Understand now.

There are a couple retailers listing them online as in stock, but rolleyes.gif

I was seriously thinking about watercooling this time but then again my passion for silent PCs took over and I rather chose to buy one of the most expensive CPU coolers. In the end that decision saved me quite some money actually which was another reason to keep my hands off from watercooling. Contemporary air coolers are so good that it is hard to justify a watercooled build as you can achieve almost the same performance on a quieter and smaller footprint with air.







I think Prime95 is a strange benchmark for temperatures because some of its tests during one and the same torture test can be more or less intense. That makes a difference of about 8°C in my case. I could tell that during a Prime95 torture test my CPU has a maximum load temperature of 69°C with 4.7 GHz @ 1.43 V. But after the first 24 tests that temperature goes up to 77°C. Compare the graphs in the HWiNFO gadget:

That is an extremely nice build

And now that I know my phanteks will fit in that tiny case, its even more tempting to grab a tiny board smile.gif

Drop into one of your local bespoke wood shops and ask for 4 blocks. They will probably cut you 4 for free. smile.gif
Know I would. wink.gif


Got my wood blocks( 3.5"X3.5"X7.5") combined with the Case stands, the bottom filter is about 4-4.5" off the ground now.
