post #8031 of 10491

Yeah intense obsessing about my mod/build burns me out sometimes too where i gotta take breaks sometimes. Definitely understandable :p

 

Wish i had another side project to focus on in between, but all my funds are tied up in TRiCLOPS =\

I mounted a 2000rpm 80mm fan on my hot swap bay.

Didn't have to drill any wholes or anything. Lowered my hard drives temps by 12c. Bringing them down to about 38c biggrin.gif

Also mounted two cooler master blade master 3000rpm pwm 80mm fans with a 4 pin pwm splitter on my vrm heatsinks. Also ghetto rigged my 8350 stock fan underneath the motherboard behind the socket to help lower socket temp.

I really like this case a lot. Its hands down my most favorite case of all time biggrin.gif

I used a lot of the parts intended for my XB apart from the Gigabyte oc mobo and 360mm acool rad I bought for the 230T. When the XB is finally finished I'll be putting the 230T in my bedroom with it's own custom loop. Nothing too extravagant though, probs a 3770k and maybe a 270/280x on water obvs with 16gb of whatever RAM with a 32" monitor. We have to pay for a tv licence in the UK to fund the BBC propaganda machine. I won't have a tv in my apartment just monitors so no licence fee.

Suffering a bit of burn out myself along with herbal cold turkey redface.gif so getting a rig together fast and taking my mind off it by mercilessly slaughtering strangers online seemed the best cure. Better than doing it in the street lol.

Some effective ghetto cooling there orlfman thumb.gif I see wthenshaw is here, I think some suggestions on cable management might be forth coming biggrin.gif

Is there a better 200mm fan to use in this than CM's? Preferably without an LED. I've got the CM one from Microcenter. I've heard that Noctua was making one...

Priority is on airflow. Noise is a close second. This CM is alright but the airflow is kinda eh.

stick a pair of 140's in the front. You only need a roof fan if you're running a couple of graphics cards on air.
