This will be on the back of my 212 EVO. The mofset heatsinks (which should arrive by 7-17) will have plenty of circulation sandwiched between two fans with two additional fans above it IMO (I prefer to err on the side of caution). If you really think I am wrong in this please let me know.

i was going to say that is too many fans, then i counted 9 on mine. redface.gif

i heard good things about these fans but i think they are loud. . .

for the evo, i suggest usung exact same fan.

here is a member of this club that uses the same mobo i think . . .

I would love to put two of the same fan on the EVO. Justifying spending anymore to the wife is going to be hard. I read that as long as the CFM is higher on the puller there is no problem. The stock coolermaster tops at 2000 RPMs with CFM in the 80s while the scythe tops in the 1900s with CFM in the 110s. This is close enough for me to raise no concern. Again please let me know if I have overlooked anything.

PS Thanks for the help you have offered so far.

i assumed you were going to buy the fans. if you have them already - yah, use them as planned.

Thanks for the links mate. Do you know what's the maximum I can OC 960T with 970A UD3 on stock cooling? That'd be helpful! Cuz I've already crossed my budget limit with 960t+970a alone, so I can't buy an aftermarket cooler right now, gotta run with stock for couple of more months.

try oc'ing up to 3.7 GHz using stock vcore. just raise the multiplier and set vcore to 1.27 - 1.30 + v and see if it boots. the lower the better.

tbh, at stock and everything set at default in bios, our chips turbo boost to 3.4GHz and game just fine. but 3.7 GHz at stock volts should be doable.

i had the 212 + last winter and it let me oc to 4GHz unlocked at 1.42v. actually, all my suicide runs were done on air except it was like 28F back then.redface.gif

I'm using the GA-970A-D3 which is a slight downgrade from the UD3 (no heatsink on MOSFETs and only 4+1 rather than 8+2). I was using an after market cooler that had a push/pull setup on my 960T and had an additional 120mm on the side of my tower that was blowing on my unheatsinked MOSFETs. I was able to overclock it to 3.5 as an x4 and to 3.2 as an x6. Neither time did my temps get to an unsafe point. I probably could have pushed it further but didn't want to risk it until I got it heatsinked.

Currently, I'm in the process of getting parts to finishing putting my 960T underwater and once I do I'll post some OC specs to join the club. I'll hopefully have it by the end of the weekend smile.gif

My VRMs were getting air from a 20CM door fan and it wasn't enough to avoid throttling under full load as X6. After I added that little ASUS fan, it never throttled again (that's my rig in the pic). Indirect air is not enough

I am unfamiliar with what you mean by "throttling".

In a salvaged POS case withe mediocre circulation (4 x 80mm intake at 5-7volts and one 80mm exhaust), I ran 3800 @1.408 volts on 6 cores for 24 hours on Prime95 with no problems with heat or otherwise. Breaking 4ghz is really my only goal; I am not interested in benchmarking or other stressful applications for a computer.

I am merely trying to build a rig that uses fairly nice components, mostly last gen, that will last a few years without performance being an issue for daily use. This can include microsoft office apps, web browsing, and music/video entertainment through flash based apps online. The most intensive game I run is Skyrim (which I got running on a pentium 4), most that I play are a little older. Very few titles interest me as most video games seem redundant to me either in content, gameplay, or sometimes both.

I understand the need for scrutiny when overclocking. If the way I intend to use this setup is incompatible with its design please let me know.

Well, it took me some time. but finally got my new rig done.

still running the 960t but replaced mostly everything else. However,im not really pleased with my Sabertooth 990FX motherboard, yes its a really good board but it switches the frequencies/voltages of my cpu too much.

ran a Prime for 24 hours on 4.2Ghz x6, now temps didnt go higher then 49*C on 1.5V (thats 1 of the downsides,for a mere 200 mhz increase i had to up the Voltages from 1.425 to 1.500) so aftherwards i looked at some logs of my pc stats.

The Sabertooth increases and decreases the CPU FSB on the fly, (now my current bios is set on 210 x 20 to reach 4.2 Ghz) However, this board doesnt up or dwn the fsb by 1 mhz or so, no sometimes even by 5. on some points my cpu ran at 4.3Ghz as the fsb got a boost to 215 Mhz, on some points it ran at 4.1Ghz as it decreased to 205 Mhz.

same for the volts, at some points it ran at 1.56V and on some points only 1.45V, So my advice to anyone who wants a good OC board. dont buy the Sabertooth. You want a board that doesnt up or downclock your FSB on the fly. same for volts. (oh and its not a faulty motherboard, this is an actual function of the Sabertooth itself and you can't disable it.)

Oh and im glad i didn't buy the Corsaid Hydro H100, i wanted to buy it first but then i had to replace stock fans. So i buyed a Noctua DH14 instead. It gives the exact same performance for cooling as the H100, but on 100% load its only 19 Db compared to the sound of the H100 cooler and pump.

ill see if i can get some more speed out of the 960T/1600T cause if i can reach 4.2 Ghz on the x6 with only 49*C i wanne see what i can reach max.
