What would be recommended for how to configure my intake/exhaust fans with the following setup? I'm going to have 2 Gentle Typhon AP-15's on each rad. I may mount the bottom rad in the front of the case instead of on the bottom but not sure yet. The only way I can figure to have the same number of intake and exhaust fans is to have my bottom rad intaking and my top rad exhausting but then I'm exhausting hot hair through the top rad. How have others set their air flow up with this case?

*Note* - I will also have the 4 140mm fans the case comes with to use as intakes/exhausts.

i restarted the computer and it's working now.
Now the CPU has a 7.5, but it's not OC'd yet. So we're good for now thumb.gif

really you have to try both , id try intake on both rads first for now and exhaust out the back and the front fans , if you see that it makes your air-cooled components too warm ( because positive pressure can do that since the air stays longer before being exhausted ) but then as intake rads you water-cooled blocks should be a couple degrees cooler than if you set them as exhausts , find the balance , do some tests.

There are also no ivy bridge CPU's that work with x79.

Sorry but they aren't.

Read this: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=226569

Until Intel comes out and states they are, Nvidia acknowledge it and have all X79 boards and CPUs validated, then they activate PCIe 3.0 for Nvidia 600 series cards on a driver level. The Intel X79 platform is not PCIe 3.0. It might work for AMD but just because it works for 1/2 the GPUs on the market doesnt mean it is. Ivy Bridge is native PCIe 3.0, Sandy Bridge-e is capable of such speeds but not nativly supported.

It's capable to get it to work with a registry hack but that only works for single monitor set-ups and the people needing those speeds are the surround vision users, so it's pointless. It doesn't work for multi-monitor set-ups.

If it did work or was nativly supported I'd be buying an X79 platform but since it isn't, I have to wait for Ivy Bridge-e.

Sorry but I'm sick of people saying it is, when it isn't. For AMD yes but Nvidia no.

He's too nit picky about everything. Really annoying.

Intake from the front of the case, intake from the bottom of the case/bottom rad, exhaust rear of the case, exhaust top of the case/top rad. Always have my set-up like that.

Remember hot air rises and always try to have your fans inside the case in a push configuration. Top rad will run push/pull (fans in the top compartment run them in pull). This way the only hot air being exhausted into the case is being countered by the cold air being pushed in from the front of the case.

Don't push hot air out the bottom of a case because it'll always stay there.

my secondary 2TB HDD isnt recognized by my BIOS?
It's recognized in windows but unusable. It locks up when I try to access it, but it's not even recognized in my BIOS.

It's in the hot swap bay. and I know it's powering on because I can hear it doing so

I'm wondering why you're having so many problems getting things to work?

Bad SATA cables?

Have you tried plugging this HDD directly (not in the hotswap bay) to the motherboard? If so, does it work there?
post #4808 of 13812
yes, thats what I did and it works, so it's in the hot swap bay, but I removed the hot swap connector, and it was recognized. I just love initial install issues haha

Well, sounds like you may need a new SATA backplane. PM me your info, shipping addy, name, etc. We'll get you taken care of.
