If you do have anything on your mobo taller than ~50mm then you would need to go with a 45mm thick rad in push pull.

Here's a repost of a recent similar discussion that you may find helpful.

Awesome, thanks for the post. I started at post one and have been going through all the posts, but I must have missed that.


It's going to be close.

The heatsink on the UP7 will clear no problem. The issue will be my TridentX memory WITH the heat spreaders. I took a measurement and from the bottom side of the motherboard to the top of the heat spreaders, it is 60mm. If I remove the spreader, then it should just barely fit under the 54mm mark. Now the edge of the TridentX's are about 13-15mm down from edge of the top of the motherboard, so MAYBE that will be enough.

Going to be tight. Of course, it was tight in the Switch 810 too. wink.gif

Notes on ambient air sensor locations\fom previous discussion:

Sensor Pointing down thru bottom of case thru grille holes = 21.2C
Sensor Pointing thru front of case holes next to fans = 21.0C
Sensor laying on top of case at front = 21.4C
Sensor inside fan mounting area at top = 24.6C
Sensor laying on table 2" in front of front fans = 20.8
Sensor hannging down below desk near floor = 17.9C
Sensor Pointing down thru bottom oif case thru grille holes = 21.2C

3.6c increase. Nice!

What is the temp inside of closed case?

Just thought I'd let you guys know that Newegg just dropped the Enthoo down to $204 w/free shipping. $184 with a $20 mail in rebate. Could be interesting for anyone who has yet to make their membership here official.

Like me.
Ordering right now.

Congrats Terminus14 ! That's a super deal!

Quick question guys. I am debating if I use a dual ek top with two d5 pwm on the 5.25" drive bays (or alternatively at the floor with the support provided) or if I use two single tops and the same d5 pumps at different point in the loop (for example one pump befor the cpu and another after the VGAs... One of the things entering into this equation is whether or not dual EK top can be placed at the floor in the pump mount thing Phanteks provide us. I suppose it won´t fit, anyone have the holes spacing from the top of their heads?

Cheers

EDIT- nevermind the dimensions...I found on the manual. What about flow, would make any difference dual top or 2x single tops at different points in the loop? I think it does not make any difference but I would like to hear opinions on it.

Won't matter on a build that small (ie inside a case). Now if you were going to have an external radiator down a level (say in your basement where it's cool), then I'd say it might make a difference, but anything you could cram into a case ... na.

Did you paint those heat spreaders on your TridentX? What paint did you use?

Yes.

Good old Home Depot spray paint. "Painters Touch" is the brand name.

I took them off the memory, scuffed them up with some sand paper to give the paint something to bite into, cleaned any hand oil off with alcohol, then applied 2 VERY LIGHT coats of paint on them.

I've done the same thing on the blue heat sinks on the GA-Z77Z-UD3H motherboard too. I did them in black to make them blend in (in the Switched Switch build log).
