Hello members of Carbide Air 540 Owner`s
This is mine
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X Evo R2.0
Cpu: AMD FXfirstname.lastname@example.orgGhz
RAM: HyperX Beast 8x4GB
GPU: 2X Gainward Geforce GTX 970 Phantom under water overclocked to 1252 on core and 1953 on memory(can do even higher)
PSU: Chieftec APS-1000CB 1000W 80+ Bronze
Primary Storage: Plextor SSD 128GB M6e Black Edition
Secondary Storages: WD Caviar Green and Black both 1TB
Building since late 2014(gathering parts here and there) and at first used AIO(Corsair Hydro H105) to cool the processor, couldn`t overclock it because of the cooler itself(it couldn`t handle the heat from the mini powerplant
), so at start it was at stock clock.
Since late 2015 started to plan on the Custom Loop(thanks to EKWB) and ordered first parts. EKWB all-in-one package named Xtreme 360 and added the GPU block in the loop. Now it has SLI Gainward Geforce GTX970 Phantoms in the loop and its doing great.
Stressed it with MSI Kombustor(running at the same time the CPU Burner and GPU stress test) temps never went past 60C on processor and 41 on GPUs.Bit laggy to run them both at the same time but still it managed it.
All the blocks are in one loop. No dedicated loop for the GPUs or such.Not using any dyes or such. Just EKWB clear coolant and distilled water.
Tried for experimental reason: Shut down all fans except exhaust push-pull fans on 120mm radiator while running only Msi Kombustor CPU Burner to test the quietness of PC and temps never went past 60C running Vardars on 900rpms through BitFenix Recon Fan controller.
For gaming running all fans at minimum and it has tons of cooling capacity
I have 5 F3 Vardars and one stock LED fan that came with the case.
As far i can say it can manage all the things i throw at it with reasonable FPS in gaming with no problem and still got headroom to push it even farther.Edited by DeadRah - 2/12/16 at 2:49pm
