Cooler Master V8 with 3 fans mod pics

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been busy modding the internals on my case to prepare for the shell I'm making, and I thought, while I was at it, why not add 2 more fans on the V8.
It was doing a fine job before, but it's my belief that the V8 should have been made with 3 fans, I mean, all those gills, and pipes, and one fan??? They should have at least made brackets for optional fans addons. but oh well, I threw two 80mm fans on the outsides, on the right its pushes, center pulls/pushes, left side pulls, and I have a slightly smaller fan on the case for exhaust. Which I need to replace because that lil fan on my case almost sounds like a damn jet. Not really, but still too loud.
Either way, here are the pics.

Oh, and my system specs are below, and I idle at 28-32C and never see above 50, even prime 95 cant get it above 62, so it definitely helped.

Can you benchmark the temps with and without the added fans? If you do can you provide some picture of the benchmarks including Prime 95, Cpu-z, and Speccy?

I think 23-30 minutes with Prime95 would be enough for me.

Thanks!

Sorry, but unfortunately since there were no mounting brackets, I had to use an epoxy to hold em on. I didn't want to use zip ties, or straps, or something that would look bad or inhibit air flow. Sooo.. I can't take em off, sorry.
But I ran prime 95 for 24 hrs, at 4.8ghz w/ 1.38 vcore(I think it was) and the max was 62 C, but it averaged around 55-58 C. Forgot if that was blend or fft, but I couldnt get it to go past that.
Either way, its a definite improvement. I have them all run through the motherboard and use Asus's integrated Fan Xpert.
I did have the tweak the settings tho, I don't have the fan ramp up till after 50 bcuz, 1 its not needed, and 2 having soo many fans run off the motherboard gives me more vdroop that I have to compensate for
