100% passive gaming rig... - Page 5

Thanks Jolly, that's actually pretty cool. No pun intended. I really want/hope to pull off this successfully using a "normal" case. Ultimately creating a build that others could easily live with too.

Sorry, I heard somebody mention marshmallows somewhere.


Need to go get some now.

We'll all soon find out lol...fingers crossed it doesn't burn my house down and piss off the wife.

Serious note, most here respectfully couldn't fathom running passive because of their strong overclocks and cooling configs. My underclocked/undervolted i5 ivy runs extremely cool fanless. I've yet to see any core temps exceed 60c gaming for hours (Crysis 3) with my 3470 @ 3.0 .850 vcore. That's with a puny Xigmatek Loki fanless in a little Fractal Core 1000 and a XFX 7870 heat machine running next to it. No case fans were used during its testing either minus the gpu at 10% fan speed in attempt to generate an enormous amount of heat (damn near 90c).

Regardless, marshmallows will be on stand-by lol!

have to disagree with your choice of case. for a silent build, you definitely should have gone FT03 considering the fin and heatpipe orientation of the powercolor vid card supports vertical mounting



when mounted vertically, the heatsink orientation takes advantage of the updraft and the heatpipes are short enough so that gravity wont affect its performance too much.

if you are seriously thinking about a passive build. I would take a pair of wire cutters and open up the vents on the expansion slot plate alittle though biggrin.gif

I believe in a 0db set up, hence finding that Tom's link before. I think it should be well sought after.

Fans SHOULD be installed, but silent ones, that ONLY kicks in at really high temp for those hot days.
