Base like mine with blocks w/ rubber pads instead of castors. Could remove the stock rubber pads and glue blocks directly to base with rubber on bottom of them.

Seeing as raising my case is a no go mate, earlier you mentioned something about blocking off unused fan positions on the top of the case. Earlier today i took the sp 120 mounted on the rear and put it in the top, (corsair AF 140 at rear now). What would you suggest for blocking this area with. As you know my case is quite close to the underside of my desk, Just over 1" ono.

Fan configuration is now like this.

Front intake, 2x 120mm corsair SP's
Bottom intake, 1x 120mm Alpenfohn red clover
Rear exhaust, 1x Corsair AF 140mm
Top exhaust, 2x 120mm Corsair SP's
Cpu cooler, 2x 120mm Corsair SP PWM models

Are you having temperature problems?

Most anything will work. I often use file folders for material. Cut to fit inside of vent. Can tape or Glue Stick them in place.

I suggest you check and make sure the area at back of base is not sucking heated exhaust air from back under the case and into bottom intake.

If you changed to front intakes to 140mm fan of same kind as the 120mm you have now are you will get increased airflow. 3x 120mm fans equal 1x 140mm fans of same design and speed. . wink.gif

Cpu temps are getting upto 77c in bf4 on auto fan, (turbo profile on ai suite on my mobo). If set manually to full speed its 68c ono. Probably down to owning a very hot running i7 4770k. The air leaving the case at rear feels very cool. And top exhaust feels ok too, ill try a few materials for the remaining fan mounts on the top. Quite possible that air is hitting the underside of the desk and being circulated back into the case. As for the cpu, it may be time to get out the razor blade and a tube of coollabs liquid metal paste for a delid job.

De-lididing usually helps. wink.gif

What happens if you slide it out from under desk? Does it still run as hot?
post #3566 of 18679
I got a 10deg C temp drop when I delided my 4770k. I was using the H80i and it's running in the low 90s during realbench. After delidding its high 70s to mid 80s

Pretty much the same yes. It's looking like a delid might be the best option for this chip. Though tbh im wary about taking on such a task.

I definitely understand. Very slim chance of doing damage but.....
post #3570 of 18679
Regarding the front fans, i might just stick two of the supplied Phanteks 140mm models back in. Theyre similair in speed to the current corsairs anyway. And besides the front fans arent visible, (black and red colour theme here).

Seen a few interesting delidding methods, heating the chip with a hairdryer and removing the ihs with your finger nails looked pretty safe.
