It the pump I'm going to use for the "trial" run, gotta breakdown the SG05 to get at some of my parts, lol.

Thanks again. Which pump you think would be good to go with? I think I'm just gonna water cool the GPU first.

Now I need to see if I should go with a full block or a universal one. How's the resale value on full blocks when I upgrade my GPU down the road?

Also, do you recommend Alphacool for the CPU rad? I'm debating, if I replace the CPU cooler first I can do away with that annoying AXP and its fan then do the GPU later in the summer. Decision, Decisions to make...... LOL!

Yep. 10 minutes at 4.3ghz and it was up to 79℃ at 100% load. Seemed a bit toasty to keep it running that high.

Yeah, that does seem a bit hot there at almost 80 degrees under load.

In my opinion the ITX30 is quiet enough, on idle and on load.

Did you get your thermal paste yet? If I recall your load temps were a bit on the higher side.

Also, did you swap out the fan for the ITX30 or went with stock?

Pretty much what Im getting on my haswell i5. 35 idle/60 load with the same cooler.
I asked them and they said it fits standard 80mm x 25mm square fans without mod. The stock 92mm x 25mm is round. The NF-R8 PWM can't be too loud by Noctua standards its rated: Acoustical Noise: 17,1 dB(A) - Acoustical Noise with L.N.A.: 10,2 dB(A)

In your pictures all I see is a Corsair fan mounted on top. Did you get rid of that and go back to using the stock fan?

Those are not my pictures tongue.gif

Mine's are the ones with the Prolimatech fans. The ITX30 is te first picture I believe, first one in my post a little back.

Thermal paste arrived today to the mailbox biggrin.gif

I will pick it up tomorrow on my way to work and apply it as soon as I have the chance (Saturday if work gets too busy tomorrow and after). I expect real cooling this time.

Edit: I left the stock fan, it's been silent so far. Haven't checked out others to replace it.

I take it the MSi 780 Ti Gaming will fit because Silverstone says:
Quote:
width restriction - 5.88”

But if anyone has a card over 129mm or 5.07" wide please let me know if you had any fitment issues. Thanks!

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:
Why did you use a 120mm on the heatsink? Was the stock fan too loud or didn't perform well?

Has anyone tried the Deep Cool Gabriel cooler? 60mm high including a 120x20mm fan. I'm guessing it would be roughly comparable to the AXP-100 in performance, but at least it takes a 120mm fan and should have the potential to be a bit quieter, and easier to swap to an alternative fan. It probably couldn't fit with a 25mm case fan as well since it would exceed the Raven's 83mm clearance by a couple of mm. But with some combination of slim and full size fans it could work - 1x 25mm and 1x 12/15mm for example. Although, does stacking two fans directly on top of each other with almost no clearance between them really give any significant benefit over a single fan?

Not sure what availability is like. I saw it's available from PCCaseGear here in Australia for $52 AUD. Bit cheaper than the Silverstone and Noctua options, and the AXP-100/200 don't seem to be available anywhere here, making them more expensive options after factoring in international shipping costs. I still really want to try the AXP-200, but I think I'm going to wait for the ML07 and the new PSU before pulling the trigger.
