I was happy with my Novatech PSU but i went on play.com about a year ago and for some reason they had the HX1050 PSU listed for £62.99 so i quickly ordered one thinking it was a prcinig error as it was £179.99 at novatech and other stores and would be cancelled but it actually turned up so i replaced it! thumb.gif

Ah righty okay smile.gif

Jesus Christ £63 for a HX1050?!? That's freaking ridiculous haha

I got a few tips from some of the pro builders here too use the cool air from the h100 to send flow back into the case.
I'll tell yall how it works out smile.gif

Pro builder or not, sending air through the H100 radiator into your case doesnt sound like the ideal solution smile.gif You are just gonne heat everything up....

all settings as high as I can on far cry and the H100 still cools a can of coke tongue.gif
do you have it?
I'm gonna see how it works anyway, but thanks for caring smile.gif

if ur using the H100 as a intake, i will make the cpu cooler, and then some "hotter" air is going into the case.. but PCB's dont need the coolest air anyways.. if u see my build, i just has rads as intake, works just perfectly

Hmm... post up some stress tests if u want.. U have my attention....
Temps (hw monitor or something) and pics of the build...?

One thing we have to remember is that there are a lot of venders who's cards exhaust into the case by design, the gpu fan just blows that same hot air over the vrm/pcb. Having a rad intake and exhaust into the case you are at worst simulating that same cooling method but with a rad and not a block of metal. These internal exhausting cards rely on proper airflow/fans/wire managment to remove that hot air from the case to function ideally. There are many ways to mount the rads, some being more ideal than others but that is not to say both methods cant work effectively.
I have mounted rads both ways, my results show that mounting the rad specifically as intake but blow hot air into the case (obviously proper air flow in the case) had the best temps-for me anyways. I currently have my H70 on the gpu mounted more or less in the middle of the case (it intakes and exhausts in the case) and so im not 17c startups anymore but I still have 21c startups and idle under 28c. That difference is still a lot better than what stock cooling offered.

The Mod offers better temps regardless of rad placement but you need to follow up with proper case management because modded or stock youll have issues if you dont. I think that too much emphasis is placed on the rad placement or trying to get the lowest temps ever which makes The Mod more complicated than it really needs to be. IMO if you firstly reduce the overall noise while maintaining what stock cooling offers then The Mod has been a success for you. Any reduction in temps over stock are a side bonus (we all know your going to get a massive cooling reduction anyways) and should be considered secondary. The Mod was about noise reduction firstly and better cooling is a peasant side effect.

That said others do The Mod for their own reasons, perhaps better temps are the priority and not sound reduction, for them rad placement is very important and needs extra attention/time/cost. For sound reduction perhaps more emphasis on fan choices and fan speeds verse rad placement.

found a fix to why my temps were going up with 2 monitors. as you guys had said, using 2 monitors locks the GPUs into 3d mode. found this thread, http://www.overclock.net/t/964370/howto-dual-monitor-downclocking-fix-for-nvidia-cards, which explained how to force them back to 2d.

i just set it up literally 2 minutes ago, and the GPU temps have already dropped from 35C/34C to 30C/29C.

go back in this thead and and u will see my build.. it got 3 rads as in take..
h100 63c on my 2500k at 4.8ghzOC
gpu 1 H80i 50c 1280 mhz OC
gpu 2 H60 55c 1220 mhz OC (dont know why they are diff)
but with 8 intake fans and 4.5 fans outtake its not problem
