the corsair/antec kits provide plenty of cooling power if you not trying to smash OC records. i have a h100 - 240rad - 2x h70s(gpu's) -120rad- dual bay res. @ 4.1ghz on the cpu and almost a 1ghz clock on both cards 48*c isnt to shabby if you ask me. obviously a higher end setup will yield lower temps, but im running as cool as air (maybe not really expensive air but..) its still works!! and damn well imo for what i paid for everything.

plus i think it looks really cool! thumb.gif

This could prove problematic. Unless of course you mean 1.187v...

So I suppose my temps worsening adding push pull yate's to my 2 620' rads was because I'm exhausting out the front instead of pulling in?

Yes I get the let it pull cool air from outside the case in part..I just figured if I'm dumping inside the case, that's some extremely hot air dumping onto the cards, and through the Noctua, I guess it's not counterproductive afterall.

Just wanted to thank everyone here for all the great, detailed information! I recently did some upgrading, one of which was replacing my H50 with an H100. So I was sitting here with an H50, and needed to do something with it. I was going to stick it in my htpc, but then I came across this MOD. And I couldn't resist. So.... I gave my 560ti a little more life thumb.gif

450

450

450

So, yeah...pretty cool stuff! By cool, I mean -20 degree drop. Max before with the fans at a reasonable db, 75-80. Now haven't seen it past 55. Idles at 35, and thats only because I have 2 monitors so it wont drop clocks in 2D. Otherwise I'm sure I would be sub-zero wink.gif

Have been able to get the card benched at 1050/2000/2400 1.10v. This gives me P5855 in 3dmark 11. Not shabby. Thats 560 448 core level, pushing real close to 570. I think there is more room for overclock, but the drivers seem to stop me from going much further. When i run stress tests, the clocks will drop 50%. At first I thought it was just an overheat protection kicking in. Before the mod, I could get it to throttle like that when ever it would hit 73 degrees. but its still doing it even though I max out at 55 now. Oh well, this aught to hold me till I get a 670. biggrin.gif

usually PWM specifications says that the header can deliver 1 amp.

Although, you can check the original fan's specifications to know how many amps uses

i think you don't need a high end pwm fan too...

The new rad setup's better though, the question now is if I should reverse the fans. Easier said than done, my rad's are held up by those fans mad.gif

If you reversed the fans, the vid card temps would likely be quite a bit better but if your using an air cooler for your CPU (which I think you said that you are) then during gaming, your CPU temp would most likely be MUCH higher ...

For an air cooled CPU setup like yours? I think your probably doing the right thing using the vid card radiators as exhaust.

i think if you have proper ventilation you would be fine switching the fans around...even with your cpu on air. I had my setup at first as both rads pulling air out (1 in front of case and the other in the rear) and my top and side fans pushing air in. now i have the rear rad pulling out and everything else pushing in. better board temps but no difference in water temps.

gpu do give out some heat but that heat is not literally getting dumped in your case..movement of air,and the pressure inside the case will quickly move any heat that hasn't already dissipated from intake air moving over radiator and thru to the case, will quickly be pushed/sucked out of your case

Quick question for GTX 580 owners ...

What is a good low voltage/low core speed for general 2D use? I'm just now experimenting with setting up profiles for 2D and 3D and am curious.

Currently, for 2D, I'm using voltage of 1.075 and core speed of 686mhz. Should/can I run it even lower?

Thanks for any assist.
