Amm...h...how dou you want to connect all cables to the back of the device inside the case? Not every connector you can get trough the PCI slot... Plus if you want to put it inside 5.25 slot then find the sizes and compare it to the 5.25 slot cover...

Here's my spec:
CPU: i5 3570K (at 3.8GHz - "Turbo" - VCORE: 1.092)
Heatsink: CM Hyper 212 EVO
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H
Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW
PSU: Corsair HX750W
Case: 500R (w/ stock fans)
Idle temps: 32º-34º (at Bios).
Temps after some time surfing the web, watching youtube videos etc.: usually 34º-37º (many times jump to 40º-42º, 44º-47º for a few seconds).
Temps after some time gaming: 54º-57º (according to HWMonitor).
Are these temps normal? Shall I be concerned and search a way to decrease these temps (buying additional fans etc.)?

Is the "Turbo" a generated setting through gigabytes OC program/utility? If so, get rid of it and overclock manually. I did some testing with the preset overclocks and it can get messy quick.

GPU temp is max of 74ºC gaming/stress test with custom fan profile. I can do better though.
Is that ok?

That gpu temp might be a little high. adding case fans will defiantly help lower that temp. Just remember to have more fans as intake than exhaust to keep positive pressure.

I now have purchased 2 Cooler Master SickleFlow Red Led 120. Below is the photo and description.

Top: 2 White Led 120mm (default fan, still connected to controller) as exhaust
Front: New 2 Red Led Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm (connected to power supply using 3 to 4pin adaptor) as inflow
Bottom: 1 120mm (default back fan from case) as inflow
Side: 200mm White Led (default fan, connected to controller) as inflow
Rear: H80 (push-pull inwards)



Inquiries:
1. Am I doing fine? lol
2. I decided to use the controller for the top exhaust because when i connect them directly to PSU using 3-4 pin adaptor the led is not lighting up. And, if i use the controller for the front fans, sickle flow, it cannot turn off the red led using the controller.
3. Top fans are attached underneath the tin and not above because i cannot seem to find a screw to screw from above, its only possible if i screw from below (but yesterday i was to lazy to remove the H80 just to attach the fans lol)
4. This sickle flow airlow is very nice. but the led is not the bright frown.gif worst is it is covered by the grills making it worst. or unless im doing something wrong thats why it is not that bright.
5. Is it better to connect the front fan to PSU than in the Mobo? (anyways i think i have no choice, it cable will not reach the mobo from the front.)

400R here... I didnt realise the 500R was only £7 more until after purchase.

6 months later its still great, just have to hoover it out from time to time. I turn all the lights off as I like sublime.

Kind of. The "Turbo" option is enable by default on UD5H BIOS. VCore is set at 1.092V (jumps to 1.12V on load). Is this normal? Does it seem right?

OK, guys. I set a new custom fan curve, so it gets 68ºC on full load (strees test), runs cooler and not so loud.

1) yes

4)in the front there is a "dust filter" the holes are rather large and dont stop much actual dust. If you want more light to shine out you can remove this "filter".

5) its not "better" other than having more control if connected to the MB. You can buy an extension for the 3pin cables, or better yet a spliter that turns the 2 3-pin connectors from 2 fans into one connector so it takes up less space on the MB and you can control both fans with 1 control.

4) will try your suggestion, but it think that's the best Cooler Master SickleFlow Led can do.
5) thanks for this info. i will look at stores here in saudi if they have this connectors you are saying. currently they are attached directly to psu using an adaptor.
3) update: screwed the fan from below, not the top fan is place over the case behind the top grill, looks better now. smile.gif
