Never thought changing a Computer Case would have huge difference in temperatures

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I used to own a Corsair 800D, which is an extremely well build PC case and everything about it is great besides air cooling. I used to see as high as 84 degrees with my 670 4GB in BF3 and I said to myself that its time to switch to a new case. Oh also my CPU would go as high as mid 70s.

 

I ordered a Corsair 500R which I was adviced as one of the best cases with really great airflow. The case is solid and good but definitaly not up to 800D standards and space. However with my exact configuration, now my GPU hits 65 degrees max, and my CPU hits 60 degrees with just 2 fans on h100. With my previous 800d, I had 4 fans on the H100.

 

Needless to say, I never expected such a drop in temperature. I have no worries to go SLI right now.

 

I know that my previous 800D only had one intake fan on the bottom and the rest was exhaust, but still I never expected such a difference.

 

In case you guys wonder, I have 2 120mm fans on the side panel of 500R,

total of 3 fans in the front as intake.

 

BUT the interior is messy, no matter how I tried, the cable management is not even half of what 800D offered.

 

Did you guys also experience such a drop in temperatures by switching cases?

This is common with the 800d. My friend switched from a haf 932 to a 800d and he experienced a rise temps.
He had a custom window made to get more airflow into the case.

Yeah.

 

I mean i LOVED my 800d in everyway but I wish I spent that premium amount of money on a Cosmos 2. I am sure it would be a better choice for air cooling.

 

I am loving the 500r right now though. I will also add a 2nd 670 and I have no worries on my temperatures.

Definitely.

Coming from my old 650D (before it was watercooled) to a Phantom it's nuts. My 650D wasn't horrible at moving air, but at the same time I had to zip-tie fans to the HDD cages to move more heat away from my 470's because of the temperatures. Definitely, DEFINITELY helps keep the jet engines down. tongue.gif

Do you have a fan blowing onto your GPU?

when people were telling me that their GPUs never go above 65 degrees with a reference PCB, I was like " What the Hell "

 

but now I totally get them biggrin.gif

hehe gratz on the amazing results. but if you really want to join the big leagues imagine what 3x180mm intake fans can do for you in the RV02-E or the FT02 biggrin.gif

I have recently got a rig with a 650d, and I am have some temp issues with my first card in sli(670's). I have a water cooler on my cpu, and haven't really pushed it. You can see it in my sig picture. My temp issue is my top card is always 15 or so c hotter than the bottom. I know that this is "normal", but reading these posts make me wonder if a new case might be an idea?

Water is your friend. smile.gif

When you look for a case, you usually look for either airflow or space (for radiator) on top of the usual features. That said, the 800D is not known for good airflow.
