Still new to over clocking so i need to know if this is good or not.

i7 2700k @4.8Ghz
CPU Block - EK Supreme LTX
Tygon Tubing
Ice Dragon coolant

So far running Blend for about a half hour its peaking at 76 degrees. Does that sound about right for almost a 1Ghz over clock? Or can i do better somewhere?

76C sound reasonable for 4.8GHz. What is your ambient temp?

Okay, got my case, just curious, is there anything in particular I should look for? Like are there any common defective areas that are obvious? dents, bends, etc? I have looked it over and it appears to be good.

One user had his power button sideways. That's about it lol

For the water cooling, can I sub out the default water block for the cpu (ex240 kit) for the copper one?

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14845/ex-blc-1039/XSPC_RayStorm_High_Performance_Acetal_CPU_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Special_Edition_Copper_Intel_Sockets_LGA_1155_1156_1366_2011.html?tl=g30c85s139

Everything else in the default kit is fine, but I rather have that copper block. Is such a thing possible?

When I got mine, one of the tabs for the front panel was bent over and not sliding into the slot properly. Easy fix. thumb.gif

The window comes with grills, many people don't like that.

Guys, I currently own this case and love it was working perfect but upgraded from gtx 560 to a gtx 680 so theres a bit more heating going on.

Since the 680 was a reference I hooked it up to a Corsair h60 with Dwoods bracket.

even know the temp as per HWmonitor does not go up over 60 the air comming out of the RAD on top is very hot so theres some concern (i would estimate over 75 degrees)


Now I have 2 120mm rads a h60 and a h50 or a h60/h70 not sure either way its two 120mm .

Im not sure on whats the perfect setup for it for improving airflow and this issue. I know the one I currently have is not the best.

I have

2 enermax case fans (silent with blue leds)
7 corsair case fans
1 silent corsair fan (on h70v2)

Current set up

2 enermax intake in front of case then the two case fans in the drive bays (default location).
1 case on top side panel (intake)
1 h70 on rear ( its filter|case|fan|rad| (exhaust)
1 h60 ontop back case|fan|rad (exhaust)
1 fan on fron top (exhaust)

Should I

1) Place both rads on top exhaust and everything else intake ( including back fan)
2) Put intake in bottom, change the the enermax location to side and have the 4 front as corsair
3) Put radiator in bottom with air going in
4) put rad in bototm air going out
5) all your ideas are crazy try these intead_________....

Alright thanks guys, pictures later this week. I hate that I have to wait ANOTHER week for my components.....newegg saddens me with their separate warehouses that are not magically next to my house.

Sounds to me that you have a good setup already. If anything I would probably add another intake fan and loose the filter on the rear exhaust. The hot air coming from the rad is normal, and with your temps staying below 60 I would say that the set up is working well. Be sure you are running fans with very high static pressure on those rads. The fin density is very high and if your fans are not optimized you will not be able to push enough air through them.
