Noob that spend $2,000 on a build - Page 15

post #141 of 155
Thread Starter 
Been messing around with the radiator fan setup.

Results: :
Corsair Stock fans = Turbines, loud and performed well. Noctua fans = quiet and performed as the same as the stock Corsair fans.

Did the Push/Pull setup - Noctua as Push and Corsair as Pull. 3-5 C* decrease of temp. This was all done prime95 for an hour. Corsair fans were loud.

Id rather spend $50 more and get a MUCH better custom loop.

For me I didn't go with the custom loop option because I just didn't want to take the time to select all the parts and then put it all together. There was a time where I was all about going the custom route on everything that I did, even outside of computes. I guess in my older age I just want something off the shelf that will do the job for me. wink.gif

I didn't go with the air cooled option as I really don't like the idea of that much weight hanging of the MB. For me this is especially a concern as the system will be going to and from LAN parties at least once per quarter.

I specifically chose the h110 because in the majority of the reviews I read, it and the x60 were at the top of the list. Between those two the Corsair had the better warranty and a lower price, plus I'm using a corsair case.

Thanks for the info, I do not own high speed memory so I haven't had a chance to benchmark it. I have always read and been told tighter timings are better. If you say high frequency speed memory will increase my fps, I will have to test this, sounds like it is worth upgrading my ram if this is true.

As to answer the PSU buy. I had the AX850 but exchanged it for the AX1200i. Figured it'll be the same price as a AX850 since it was on sale plus rebate. Now I have to wait for the rebate for the $30 AX1200i and $10 H100i, $5 X2 Corsair 140 fans. Total $50

Dude. Its common sense.... add 2+2.....Ya put the water stuff inside the water holding stuff... ya flush, then ya bleed the air out... LOOKATHAT! DONE, OH MAN SO HARD. 20 mins it took, HOLY long day hard work WHEWHHHHHHH!

And don't be adding smiley's thinking its acceptable to insult if you add a smiley.

Now you're being childish........................................................... smile.gif

Not everyone wants to have to do that work, some of us actually move the rigs around fairly often and having to set up the loop every time isn't worth it.

Again, there's no need to be abrasive because not everyone shares your opinion, it belittles your point and makes you look silly.

And don't be using all capital letters thinking it makes your point any more solid.

He can say what he wants but I love closed loops sytems. Bring's intro overclockers into the mix, wich is good in my opinion.
