Yes thanks man , appreciate your time to do so , however i already posed that to Steezy today in a PM and some other links , i think from linusTechTips from memorry.
Yes that is a particularly good graph , and if i do decide my DS are indeed garbage after more extensive testing and personal use , and fail to do the job , especially when i do get a second GPU , then i will eat humble pie and i will invest in something you guys all use , either way that is a good graph , and a great source too !
A random e.g , my old man has a duel core and 1 x HD 7770 and in 24c ambient under prime 95 stress will only get 50 CPU , GPU temps with one 120 Rad and one very obscure 120 mm fan , he cares nothing for fans , aesthetics.
Also he made his own case from scratch , own CPU and GPU blocks and heat sinks for VRAM's a punny little obscure pump , custom made in series manifold ,and anti freeze in a system that has not been cleaned for several years with plasticizer in it , and it works a treat
That said , i have disagreements over him being able to run a faster quad and hotter GPU with it , and it pisses him off when i mention it , but the point is , that is what a 70 year old man can achieve in the face of all the hair splitting and debate.
I like him , am of the opinion that great un obscured case airflow and enough rad surface and a reasonable fan set is very good, i cant hear the old mans 1 fan and never have , it barely moves but everything works perfect.
I do realize that this is not ok for me , have a look at my 750D thread album in my profile if you are interested in what i am doing , and my choices , i will have the most heavily modified 750D yet id say , and im not finished cutting metal out , i will be cutting the bottom and back fan grills out too yet , note the front radiator mod i did , i cut all of the front of my case out ! , i have zero obstruction of air flow , i have 3 front doors , i will do a vent mod on one too , i opted for a 140 mm fan and rad up front to make full use of the 140 mm opening.Edited by Bertovzki - 2/8/15 at 3:02am
