I got my Sony Blu ray drive today too, so might as well wait till I have everything to rip is all down again. Sucks about the restocking fees though with newegg...but I did use the cooler.

Yeah, I understand about taking this thing apart when need be as its a PITA to get everything apart. LOL! I would just report it as not working to Newegg, then they won't charge you the shipping or restocking fee.

Too bad that fan wasn't a 120mm fan on the AXP-100 Muscle since I doubt anyone else sells 100mm fans.

- Corsair Fan, SP120 PWM High Pressure Fan 4 pin, Dual Pack x 2
- Silverstone Strider SST-ST45SF SFX Series - 450 Watt





After a week of testing with this case I've found that the corsair fans are too noisy.:mad:I placed them under the gpu, so I've swapped them for 2 Akasa AK-FN058 Apache Black Super Silent 120mm Fan - 4 Pin PWM:)
Also I've ordered (should arrive tomorrow) Akasa Viper R High Performance S-Flow fan & Thermalright TY-147 140mm Case Fan to try on the thermolab cooler cos again the corsair fan are too noisy lucky for me the asus board has 4 pwm fan headers:thumb:

This build is mainly for gaming on my 42" led lg tv 1080p up to yet only played titanfall & cod ghost (all setting maxed out) vsync 60fps CPU max temp 53c GPU 63c

I'm not in to stress testing so no max temps but I've have overclocked the CPU to 4.2

Any question please ask:thumb:

Nice clean build there.

How are your fans setup on NH-L12 and sidepanel? Intake or exhaust?

I'm thinking the AXP-100 fan might be a little louder than the NF-B9.

Thanks OCPG

I had to adapt a 120mm fan guard, sorry I didn't take any better pic's before I fitted it only these





All fans are intake

Im actually very surprised you were able to achieve only 53c OC'ed to 4.2 with that cooler, but this will definitely explain your noise...While there seems to be something said about using a full copper heatsink, your CPU fan must be spinning at a high rate, and no matter what fan you put on that cooler its going to sound loud.

Load testing isn't to be taken into fact, however you can get a pretty good idea of what your temp is during that load. I would run a load test while having a real time temp monitor running.

From here you can see your fan RPM's and each core temp.

All intake, you want these to be intake. Captain Zombie has the AXP-Muscle (and I) which is pretty much identical to the 100. From we've seen through the pages of this thread is that the coolers that have more heat pipes running through the fin assembly gets better temps than those without.

Might have to McGiver to get the NF-B9 to fit on the AXP...but you might want to consider the NF-B9 1600. has a higher RPM at 1600 which should give you better temps

Do you think the LP53 would be louder than AXP-100? I'm very interested in your comparison between NH-L12 vs AXP-100 noise level. smile.gif

Also asus fan-expert 3 supports 3 case fans to run at different speeds at different temps indepently

I understood what you were saying, I'm just letting you know that there have been issues with pwm fans being used on headers that are voltage controlled versus actual pwm control. They tend to cause the fans to click and make noises that they shouldn't because they are not being controlled properly, and it can cause the fans to fail much sooner than they would otherwise. Also, in the asus suite, they only control via temp if you have temp probes plugged into the boards temp sensor headers, at least that's how they work on my M6I, M6F, and M5Extreme.

Sorry OCPG, but on the ASRock board, only the CPU header is a true PWM header.

I thought my temps was good! I measured them with (real temp) min 32 max 53 after gaming for 30 mins. Corsair sp high performance fans are rated at 2100 rpm max they was running about 1650rpm. What I meant is that they are very noisy at any speed above 1000rpm. The Akasa AK-FN058 Apache Black Super Silent 120mm Fan run at 1300rpm max and are a lot quieter, also it didn't change the temps of the gpu
On the desktop it idle's about 32-36c after gaming it Max's about 53-55c. I'm very impressed with the cooler

Thanks Jim! I was planning on running an Akasa PWM splitter off the chassis header to control 3x120mm Noctua case fans. Should I just go with 3-pin fans instead? How would I control them? Thanks again!

I would look for quiet 3-pin fans and just let them run at their normal speed, personally. Or, depending on the wattage used per fan, do a 4-way splitter off of the CPU fan header, just don't exceed 12watt/1amp for the header.

Edit: I'm personally not a fan (sorry for the pun) of pwm fans or devices. I find the sound of them ramping up and down to be more distracting than just getting a quality quiet fan and running it at its full speed.
