Corsair 350D Owners Club - Page 216

post #2151 of 5046
First time poster, guys please help me a bit with cooling.
Build : 350d window , i4670k, Corsair Xms 8gb, Msi z87m gaming, Msi Gtx TF 760 gaming x2 , Plextor M5pro 128 ssd, XFX Pro XXX 750w PSU.
I have never owned a decent PC (laptops and office PC) so I have no exprecience in overclocking and knowing what this hardware can do.
The big quiestion right know is what kind of cooling to choose. Note that I will be OCing but usage will be very casual, i simply don't do any demanding tasks except may be I'll play some games.
1. H80i + SP quiet or SP perfomance fans x2 = expensive, avaliable, least performance but probably more than enough for me.
2. H100i + SP quiet or SP perfomance fans x2 = most expensive , limited avaliability, good performance but again probably more than enough for me.
3. H105 + SP quiet or SP perfomance fans x1 (Since it already has SP fans I can set them in front for intake and put the ones with the rings on the radiator for the looks) = price same as 80i , soon will be avaliable, probably best performer, but will it fit easily and look as good as H100 ?
4. Dark Rock 3(Pro version would probably not fit) and some Silent wings 2 fans for case = least expensive, looks are debatable since I like all black but don't like the idea of having this huge thing hanging from mb.
5. Noctua Nh-D14 + SP quiet or SP perfomance fans x2 (Use Noctua fans for intake) = as expensive as water cooling solutions, would probably be the most power/noise effective.

I worry more about the heat from gpu's and they will definitely be the main noisemaker, so I'm kinda trying to find the best CPU cooling solutions that will help gpu cooling (if it makes sense) cause the only thing I can do for GPU's is put 2 good fans for intake in front.

Are you already deadset committed to those 2 MSI GTX760's? You run the risk of having a hell of a time trying to keep them cool since they feature open-style coolers (as opposed to blower-style coolers).

Nevertheless, back on the topic of CPU cooling. You're interested in going with a 4670k, which (as you may know) run quite warm when overclocking. Since this is your first serious PC, I'm guessing the idea of delidding your CPU is out the question? (feel free to search "CPU delidding" in the search box above). If so, you really need to be looking towards a H100i at minimum. You *could* go for a H105, but it requires installation in the front of your PC rather than the top, so you'd have to remove the 350D's HDD and SDD racks and install your drive/s in a different area of the case (such as in the 5.25" bays using "5.25 to 3.5" bay adapters", or behind the motherboard using velcro)

Well, I understand that I odered a mini bakery smile.gif ,delidding is future option but my main concern is, yes the components wiil run hot on max load but will I really ever max load it ?
Some BF4 and other way less demanding games is maximum what I will be doing.

Ok, here's the plan.
1. Run everything stock with 1 card , check temps.
2. Add second card, check temps.
3. If it's absolutely terrible, change 2 760 for 1 290 or 780
4. If it's somewhat ok, add all the fans and h100i and enjoy

Sounds good?

Yeah you'll be running max load in BF4, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 etc., but obviously as you step back from the intense titles the load will drop too.

It sound like a solid plan yep.

Corsair 350D,
Cosair Ax760,
Intel Core i5 4670k,
Asus Maximus Gene,
Corsair DDR3 1866Mhz Lp (2x4Gb),
EVGA GTX 780 Sc,
Crucial M500 480Gb SSD,
Samsung 1.5Tb HD
Corsair H100i,
Corsair SP120 Quiet x4,
Corsair AF120 Quiet x1,
Corsair AF140 Quiet x2

So i've gone through most of the thread and been picking up a lot of ideas. I'm basically going with a very similar build to a lot of you. Taking out the drive cages, mounting the H100i in the front with a push/pull configuration and having exhausts out the back and top. SSD and HD will go in the 5.25" bays. What I want to do though is have a really clean front. So, with that in mind and with no optical drives going in those bays Is is possible to remove the 5.25" blanks and use a cut down 900D front plate? Or is there another solution you guy know about or can come up with? Thanks for any help and the inspirational builds.

Is there a benefit of using SP120's in the front of the case? I thought you only uses those on radiators and cpu coolers because of the obstruction, it pulls better air, but for unobstructed the AF120's or 140'S would do.

the front panel restriction and the dust filter make it worth going for higher static pressure fans for the front intake

Yes I suppose that's true. Sometimes I like to take the front panel off and leave the filter on there just for a little extra cooling.

After reading the past few posts, is there an Noctua version for the SP120's from Corsair? If not, should I be running those instead of Noctua fans in the front in this case?
post #2159 of 5046
Are you using water cooling? If not, you might consider 140mm fans for the front. (1 comes std.)

But to answer you question, Yes they do.

If you're happy with your temps, then don't worry.

I have never do this before so still trying to gets to grips with everything. Have changed my order and going with what you suggested. As for the front panel I've decided just to modify the the one that comes with the case. Thank you for your help.

No worries. The "quiet" editions are quieter than the performance editions because they spin slower than the performance ones. I think the quiet editions run at a 1100rpms and the performance run at 2300 rpm. The PWM versions will run anywhere from 600 to 2300 rpm, so if you run them at 1100 rpm, they will be just as quiet as the "quiet" versions. The non-pwm versions can run at lower rpms if you use a fan controller, but since your mobo does support PWM fans, it would be simpler and cheaper to just use those. I would also recommend getting some pwm y-splitters for your fans. Use one to attach the two front rad fans to one header and another splitter to attach the rear rad fans to another. Don't put more than 2 fans per header or you can burn it out. Then, you can use the Fan Xpert software to control their speeds. Just make sure that their rpms are the same and you'll be fine.
