WOW! Transfered to antec 900 and HR-03 GPU Cooler.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am freaking amazed at the temps i'm getting now! I'll explain a little first. I bought an old generic case a couple years ago. Typical fan setup 120 front, 120 back, and an 80mm side fan. I think the only reason I bought it was because it said aluminum on it...thats it...right on the front in raised letters.

I also bought a thermalright HR-03 GPU cooler after reading tom's hardware review of it. So down to business. Everything went pretty smooth. Installed PS upside down due to fan. CD-rom went in easy. HD went in the cage fine. I am not real big on cable management as you can see in the pic. As long as its not hitting a fan blade its good enough for me. Only issue was the 2x2 connector by the CPU. Mine was too short...luckily I had anticipated this and had one on hand. I didn't have any issue with the dvi cables being plugged into the g card. On to the comparison.


CPU temps in core1-core-2 format ALA TAT (100% loaded for 10 mins using TAT). All ANTEC 900 Fans on Medium speed setting.

IDLE OLD 33-30C LOAD 55-54

IDLE Antec 900 25-23 LOAD 47-46


CRAZY eh. That's about an AVG 8 degree drop for cpu temps.

Now onto the thermalright HR-03 GPU cooler.

Stock cooler X1900XT cooler temps taken using ATItool

Stock idle was 50C and after 10 minutes of scanning for artifacts is was 90c.
HR-03 Idle is 33C and after 10 mins of scanning it is 61C.


Isn't that nuts!?

The only thing that kinda bummed me out was I couldn't use the 120mm sidefan with the HR-03 installed. Oh well I am very happy with these 2 products!

A pic of everything installed. I am too tired to do any testing, but if I do i'll post up results.

Better air-flow always helps. I experienced the same effects with my 2nd rig when I went from mid-tower to full tower.
