ASRock X79 Extreme 11 Owners Issues & Hopefully Fixes - Page 120

post #1191 of 1193
^ oh that is not bad of a deal, and interesting to hear from you that using the card gives you faster performance. That will be something I do then! thanks for sharing the info. Hahaha that infamous X-fan out of the equation. Doesn't it feel great that you don't need to add a fan for the south bridge!? hahaha

Cheers!

I was looking for a watercooling block for the chipset, in vain.... After 2-3 days, the mobo fan went the way of the dodo, I extincted it tongue.gif

I installed a 120mm fan that blew air at where the stock cooler had been, less noise and better temps !

As for the new controller card, it appears to outperform the stock LSI controller, both higher throughput and it seems to handle multiple disk to disk transfers(between different set of disks) a lot better... I have 8 SAS drives attached to it.

I do the same, have a 120mm blowing at the xfan area to help lower temp on SB to keep the xfan under 3000rpm.

I have 8 drives connected to the LSI ports in RAID10. Thanks for the good info on the LSI card again. smile.gif

Cheers!
