z77n-Wifi/Cooler Master GeminII/BitFenix Prodigy/Corsair Vengence

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I'm brand new here and just hoping to help someone else out because I researched for a long time. I was looking for an air solution to my z77n-wifi in my Prodigy case. The cpu is very close to the ram and pci express slot.

I'm no pro camera man at all. These were taken with my Galaxy S3 is not the best lighting but I figured they'd work just for reference. :-)

Here is my Motherboard

Here is my Cooler

The taller ram is the Corsiar Vengence and the shorter one is a G.Skill.








This is a picture I found on another website that helped me out a lot!


I have the two top fans pointing down, they are the 120mm cougar fans. The 140mm cougar in back blowing out and I took the top 200mm Cooler Master fan out of my HAF case and stuck it in the front blowing out as well.

It's a stock i5 3470. idle is in the high 20's and tops out in the low 40's while gaming. That is according to the Gigabyte easy tune software as well as Lavalys Everest. I was using CPUID but it's temps were a good 15-20 degrees higher than these two. I figured since these matched exactly, these must be right.

Last thing, all the ports are still accessible. The 3.0 motherboard header was a tight squeeze but I got it in there. Along with the audio cable, and other fan port on the motherboard. I'm 5"11 over 200lbs and I was able to get my hands in there to make it work.

Well, hope this helps someone else.

Mike
