Thanks for all your help!

does some on have numbers of the temperature from a 4790k with a h60 in the mini? hard to find something...
post #1973 of 2736
Once I get all the parts I'll post up my temps. Might be a few weeks, waiting on black fri/mon to order the bulk of my parts

Well, it's not an H60, but I have a 4790k (barely OC'd, 4.5Ghz @ 1.2v) in an FT03-Mini running an H75, with a Noctua NF-A14 PWM intake/push fan (Replaced the AP141) and an NF-F12 internal as a 'pull' fan.

(I know my cable-management sucks, I'm slowly making custom PSU cables by cannibalizing a PP05-E set.)

Unfortunately, I'm also waiting on a GPU, so I'm stuck using the HD4600 for now. I'm also running 16GB G.Skill 2400Mhz memory @ 1.65v, so just keep in mind that your temps will probably be ~5-10 degrees lower with the same setup, but the iGPU disabled, and/or slower/lower voltage memory.


That said, my system idles around 30C (on a cooler day this goes as low as 25, warm days without AC running 32-35C range.)

While typing this post, with a source-quality twitch.tv stream running the background, my CPU cores were typically at: 30C, 32C, 28C, 27C (ambient temp around 24C)

With typical 24-26C ambient temps, non-AVX load temps are typically in the low to mid 60's.

Again, 24-26C ambient, I can run Asus realbench stress test (set to use all 16GB ram) for a couple of hours and it will hit 78-82C or so because of the intermittent AVX loads.

Same 24-26C ambient, with constant/100% AVX loads (e.g. OCCT w/ avx linpack, or Prime95) temps will skyrocket past 85C in less than 15 minutes.

So, I'm personally ok with this given my usage, but if you plan on running a lot of AVX heavy programs, then this isn't the cooler, or the case to do it in.

A 25mm Rad AiO would keep the 4790K cool during gaming and media stuff? Sounds good. A shame that the ref 980 can't fit and doesn't have any airholes to breath.

The reference 980 will fit if you cut out the bottom panel, it misses by like 3/8"/10mm I looked into this a lot, and it's still my ideal card, though thanks to car problems I'll likely have to settle for a 970.

I don't remember where I originally found these images, they are not mine, but they show how easy it should be to cut out the bottom.

It's build from the hardforum, i even saw that thread some weeks ago. Just curious: What are the limitations for AiOs without modding the case? Would a H80i fit?

as long as you don't use that DVD bracket, any 120mm AIO should fit

You can keep the ODD bracket in place and still fit an H80i or larger 120mm rad just by bending the bottom part of the bracket out of the way. It's really thin metal, and bends by hand easily, that's how I made room for the NF-F12 'pull' fan with my H75.
