And can anyone recommend me some low-profile memory cooling for the two chips on top of the card?

Sweet build, dude!

judging from the pix, I think you gonna have some problems adding those heatsinks on the gpu. It seems the fittings are just too close. Maybe if you add some extenders first..

These might work http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=54_43&products_id=22612

 

They're low-profile gpu memory heatsinks. 

 

I definitely agree with SOG about the extenders though. Should work perfectly

Guess I'll put the extenders on my to-get list.

I bought the 45" fittings because I was hoping they were long enough to clear the edge of the card before before going on a sharp angle.
Had I known they weren't long enough I would've just gone with an extender along with 90" fittings, which is probably what I'll do in the future.

Didn't see anyone answering this, any luck?

I would but I have literally zero experience on fans, I'm still using the ones that came with my cheapo case (Cooler Master tho wink.gif) so I wouldn't have any baseline for comparison. I think I'll let someone with experience do it, but if i decide to get them I'll tell how they work out for me!

Looking for some advise from the fine people of this forum.

On Monday night my Corsair H100i kicked the bucket, sort of. It will no longer properly control the fans and the LEDs will not stay on. It also isn't recognized by the motherboard so I get a no cpu fan error when booting the machine. The pump itself is still working but who knows how long that will last. I've only had it for 3 weeks so an exchange won't be a problem, I will do so on Saturday. I have installed my 4+ year old H50, which does the job in the mean time but temps certainly aren't where I would like them to be.

My issue is that since I believe I have gotten pretty much the worst 4770k you can get (4Ghz isn't even stable at 1.15v), I am thinking of possibly moving over to air cooling for reliability. My issue is that because I am running SLI, I need the top 200mm fan installed to equalize my GPU temps as when it is not there the top card runs 10+ degrees C hotter. This seems to limit me on what air coolers will fit according to coolermaster the max height is 155mm with the top fan installed.

The other issue is that my ram modules are Corsair Vengeance, which are fairly tall dimms, and also limit what high performance coolers air coolers can be installed.

I am also considering going the other way and upgrading to the Swiftech H220. This seems to be the big daddy of all in one liquid coolers, though I am also concerned about the reliability of the pump. Have seen many complaints of these dying, but also seen how good their support is should that happen.

My goal is to hopefully be around 60 degrees under prime95 small fft, which im sure would be even lower with the H220. The H100i was able to do this, an the h50 i am using in the meantime is about 10 degrees hotter. This should give some reference points for the heat output of my chip. My ambients are usually in the low to mid 20s.

Would love to hear your guys opinions on what a good choice would be.

Also, to go off on a bit of a tangent, I am fairly pissed that I received such a ****ty 4770k. Why is Intel able to ship a SKU specifically for overclocking, yet not be required to bin them to ensure you can actually do so. That's like buying a Ferrari and putting a transmission from a Honda Civic in it, it will be blown to shreds the first time you floor it. Really wishing I had just gone with a plain jane 4770, as I would have gotten the same performance and also had all the extra virtualization features I missed out on. /endrant

thumb.gif A good fan is also a bit of personal taste; color, airflow, noise, price. I recently bought 3 different fans, just to see which one I liked better. And all 3 were in the same price point as the DS. If my local pc store had them I probably would have tested them too, just for the heck of it.

What do you want your best fan to be?


btw, they get good reviews (kitguru & eTekNix).

I want them to be preferably black with no LEDs, as little noticeable as possible. Optimal noise/performance ratio and under 20 bucks per piece (student life ftl) how big will the difference be in the stock EVO fans vs any sub-20 fan?
