If you are on the x79 platform, it could be useful.

Probably the best way to find out is to wire up a fan and have it loose and unmounted with enough slack in the wires that you can hold it in various places and positions in the back of the case directing air where you want it. Start a Prime95 test and then hold the fan in different places for a few minutes at a time and watch cpu temps, then remove the fan for a few minutes and continue to watch temps. If there is a noticeable difference in temps then this could be something that might allow you squeeze a tiny bit more out of your cpu.

If you try it, be sure to come back and let us know how it went. Just be certain that when you test that you try to isolate as many variable as possible and make the test as consistent and as easy to reproduce as possible.

I have been planning on trying it myself to see if it helps me achieve 5.0 with lower vcore, but it probably won't. The cooler the better though. Definitely worth the little effort required.

That looks real tasty. Very tidy work!

Love the color on the fittings! What kind of paint did you use for the PCI thumb screws?

A sheet of acrylic or aluminum.. Really whatever you feel more comfortable working with.

It looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. smile.gif

Any plans to sleeve that HD Audio cable so it matches the rest of the build? You could also just remove it if you don't use the audio ports on the front of the case.
