Thanks Jim. You helped me with my EK block staining issue too. I'm gonna have to put you on retainer. lol.

Corsair H100i ordered! Hope I measured it right + will have strong hand with dremel smile.gif))

How'd the block turn out BTW?

Managed to fit a corsair h100, but the fan had to attach to the outside the case. MSI 270X 4G ALSO.Had to loosen the power supply cable to make the graphic card fit.


A very nice home theater pc

Was it you that said something before about the 780 (Ti) being made to run at 80c load? Just wanted to clarify and get a better understanding.

My main concern is noise and the NF-S12A ULN is super quiet, but it's performance might not be the best. They have another model the NF-S12A PWM that performs better, but I like the idea you mentioned about getting a 3-pin quiet fan to begin with and not having to worry about it ramping up.

I had 2 S12A:s installed, but as they weren't enough cooling wise I ordered F12s as replacements. The F12:s are more noisy though, but only by noctua standards.

Did you turn up the GPU's own fan? What was the GPU temp? I'm a little skeptical as others have claimed to be fine with fans such as the included silverstone 15mm fans.

Don't think it will fit as it's 140mm. I've been trying to find some info on the Vortex 12 for the cpu side panel. Seems to be one of the only good 15mm fans available.

Yes, at the reference clocks, the 780Ti won't start to throttle until 95c. And they can actually run all day at 80-90c with no ill effects to longevity or performance.

Okay, I am just wondering, as the upper case fan and the CPU fan sit directly above each other.

That means the case fan would blow towards the cpu fan (down), and the cpu fan (just a few centimeters away from the case fan) would blow towards the case fan (up). Is that still okay, or should the upper case fan blow the air outside the case with that setup?

I have a R9 290 so temperatures are a real problem even though I have a Twin Frozr cooler on it. I currently have 1 F12 and 1 S12A installed under the GPU and there are about 4mm space between the GPU and the fans. Originally I had 2 S12As and was finally able to run without throttling when changing one for the more powerful F12. It makes more noise but it is more optimized for heatsinks and radiators (read: operation in tight spaces like the RVZ01) and gives more pressure so it manages to keep the GPU cooler.

At baseclock with the fans turned to 100% the temps even out at about 87C, with the GPU fan running at 80% during Unigine Valley. I'd much rather have the Noctuas running 100% than the Twin Frozr because they are much quieter and less hair driery. I'm running the case inside a TV bench and the temperatures drop by about 10C when taken out and put vertically. It's much more quiet then too. I have 1cm of coasters under the case in horizontal mode to allow more airflow for the GPU fans. It's much more quiet then too.

I personally am probably going to toss the Twin Frozr altogether for a bigger heatsink (Alpenföhn Peter 2) and use the intake fans practically as GPU fans, because it is probably not efficient having two fans running close to 100% on top of each other. I hope I had the guts to make a DIY watercooling for the case but can't trust myself not screwing up the installation in such a tight case.

You're probably okay when running a cooler card than the 290/290X and the stock fans will probably suffice, but when wanting optimal performance I'd stick with the F12.

I would reverse the CPU fan so it is pulling instead of pushing in that situation honestly, the case fan blowing cold air from outside will help more for CPU temps that way.

PS: what CPU cooler are you using??
