Hey there all! Just wrapped up a minor upgrade and wire management sesh. Upgraded my H70 to H100 (yay birthday gift) and re-arranged my GPU cooler mod to rear exhaust. Also moved an AP-14 to the front 5.25" bay adapter. Here are some pics!! Let me know what you think.

Yum! That is one awesome setup! Very neat and clean. Nicely done thumb.gif

How are your temps?

The temps since the initial install have been phenomenal. Max I see in BF3 is 46C, all settings maxed except only 2x MSAA. Not to mention, it's super super quiet. I am so used to waiting for my GPU fan to ramp up and throwing on headphones.I haven't run any proper benches yet. I am seeing about the same temps with it push and up top, instead of pull and down in front of the 200mm. Just opens up more airflow to the VRMs on my GPU with it up top, and looks better too.

Very nice. I understand that gaming is your main thing, so benchies wont add that much more info than you already have.

nice work thumb.gif

agreed Sethy, benches are nice for the extreme ends but results should be based against what you used the card for previous to performing The Mod. If your a gamer base the results against what your use to when gaming. It sounds like your very happy with the results and from what youve stated i would be too, you dang close to true water cooling biggrin.gif

Your rig looks fantastic, very happy to have you post your pics here as they go to show that a getto mod does not have to look like trash thumb.gif

Ive found that using 120mm in the optical bays really helps with the air flow and overall cooling. Ive have two 120mm CM sickleflows in mine which are controlled from the H100 pump. That shroud on the gpu is very nice too.

Hey everyone, I have a quick question regarding a SFF build using the Silverstone FT03T case, I'm getting the Dwood bracket for my GTX 570 and I using an Antec 620, I already have one on my CPU and I've only got one exhaust.

Has anyone sandwiched two 620's or similar closed loop coolers before? If so, what were the cons if any?

I'm thinking the GPU cooler will be the last for the air to go through after being pushed through the CPU cooler.

Thanks

Don't sandwich the coolers, it will make the second one much less efficient.

Hmm, you just made me a very sad panda lol.

I'm going to obviously try it anyways }biggrin.gif

We'll see what happens, if the GPU cooler is the lesser efficient cooler that will be okay to me but if it's going to crazy suck then obviously it won't be okay.

I'll let peeps know how it goes.

Your talking about the rads being sandwiched?

Its possble. The down side is twofold.

1) You would be pushing heated air into an already warm rad, thus increase the temps on one of your chips.
2) The sandwiched fan may struggle with no 'clean' air. this may result in backflow which would again, increase your temps.

Having said that, there is no harm in trying it out. We may all be very well suprised by the results tongue.gif

Yup that's what I'm speaking of, I haven't been able to find anyone else that's tried it and I knew there would be warm air being pushed from one into the other - just didn't know how bad it would really be.

Might have to try a weaker fan in the middle or no fan in the middle, many different configurations to try - it should be fun/interesting!
