W.A., and those temps aren't bad! My loads are about 50ish, when I was @ 4.3 they were like 55-60.

+1 for the 240 in front idea. 240>(2) 120 in terms of resistance and heat dissipation. You can do it without getting too crazy with the modding either. Just mount it to the top fan only, it will easily be able to hold it, and since it will still be butted up to the bottom fan, it wont be able to pull away. This will also give you more room on the bottom for a possible 240 rad down there as well.

Id also look into getting a non oversized psu. That enermax unit is going to make it harder to fit a 240 rad in the bottom. I had a bottom 240 rad in a CM 692 with an hx750 and it made it a headache.

Look for something that wont stick out as far like an Ax850, x850, or other units with a depth less than 6.5". And 850w would still be more than enough power for that build

edit: Id also look into getting two mcp 655s in series to help with that head pressure, for the amount of stuff in that loop it could make a big difference, Having owned both a 355 and a 655, the 655 gets my vote. It is much quieter than the 350/355

I was thinking that actually, maybe just drill a hole or two (or 4) where the bottom fan would mount to reduce vibrations. And yes, I am going to be selling my PSU, I don't need 1050W (can pull 1250W) for a 2600k and a 580.

I was thinking that, but pumps here are expensive :3

I'll see what the cost is to order the stuff from an American site. I've given them a lot of business before and it usually works out cheaper.

Thanks for that info. +REP smile.gif

EDIT: This just happened in my head:
"Bro, why're you moving to 1155?"
"Well, mATX..."
"Aren't there 1366 mATX boards? That way you could save a lot of money by keeping the same RAM and CPU."
"Brain, I like the way you think."

So yeah, after the realisation that the rendering of the videos I do only takes about 5 mins, so there's no point in trying to shorten it. I'm thinking ASUS Rampage III Gene, pretty much the same build.

1155 is faster, easier to cool, and takes less power. I dont think stepping down to 1336 would be worth it, your call though. Im just excited to see the build

Yeah, you could just keep your stuff and just get a matx board, skip this generation of cpu's and get what comes after Ivy.

@cj3waker
1155 is faster and more power efficient, yeah. Dunno how it's easier to cool though... And I dont think it can be considered as a "step-down" as he already has the 1366 stuff.
post #66 of 381
easier to cool as in it runs cooler than 1366, and by quite a margin. I missed the part about reusing 1366 stuff, I would definitely just pick up an mATX mobo if that's the case.

Oh right, that. I though that you meant something like mounting coolers or finding a cooler for 1366 etc... blushsmiley.gif

'tis, but it wont cost me anything to move to mATX on 1366 (actually might get some money) and it'll cost me a few hundred bucks to move to 1155. This means I don't have to sell on of my 580's. Hence, maybe SLi biggrin.gif

Essentially, this. Already got all the gear and cooling isn't really a problem with this much rad; but yes, it is a lot cooler.
