Has anybody had an experience with this cooler?

Its apparently a very decent cooler per FrostyTech. I personally don't like the aesthetics but I figure in a case like this I'd rather have function over form...

Compared to the pictures I have seen, my cable management is kind of chaotic - but as long as nothing blocks the fans, I think I am fine. The CPU idle temp is round about 36°C. The noise level is okay - not supersilent, but also far away from annoying (but I haven´t maxed out the system yet).

The next time I would eventually go for the Silverstone ST45SF-G PSU, as the flexible cables fit there (http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Tek-Flexible-Modular-PP05-E/dp/B00H7Y3I4M)

Thanks everyone for answering all the questions (especially Jimhans, whoanelly etc..). Great thread!

Nice! 36 at idle is great! I seem to hover a few degrees warmer with the Noctua (it seems to bounce from 37-40) but it is quiet even on load....Im wondering if having a big ass heatsink like the Noctua is impeding airflow through out the case. I ended up using the paste the noctua came with. Not sure how that would compare to artic silver.

Also, I think putting 2 x 25MM in the GPU area will increase internal pressure better than the 15's. I ordered a 25MM Nocuta to pair with the one that came with the NH-L12 in the GPU area and see if that helps any. Shouldn't touch the 760 I have in there...

Mixed reviews on it. Ether loud or silent. I was considering that one...

The view from outside


Build Completed! Cable management improved from last time, now it's decent. I'm thinking of getting a long cable for the 8-pin CPU, so it doesn't touches the PCI-E Riser Card.



So far PWM has been a pain because of the splitter, which I forgot to take a picture of. Anyway it's this one right here. I'm still figuring out how to make it work. I did plugged in one fan directly to the header and tested PWM. These USV12 fans are really good, and noticeable noise begins at 1000RPM. The box says they go from 400RPM to 1300RPM, but in my test anything below 700RPM completely turns off the fan.

The noise they generate at high RPM's is due to all the air they are pulling through the grills. I ran them outside of the case at full speed and I could just hear the airflow because I was holding them, if I went a little far they were hard to notice. I'm thinking of getting some washers, so they are not so close to the grills and the noise diminishes at high RPM's.

Going to the ITX30, I think I may have messed up the thermal paste, or the pre-applied one is cheap, because with Small FFT's in Prime95 the temperatures ramp up really fast and get near 87c. I don't have an overclock and the heatsink is rated for CPU's up to 100W, so I'm thinking thermal paste is the problem here. At idle speeds it keeps really cool though, cooler than intel stock fan. Plus the fan is silent, even at high RPM's

That's all for now, when the GPU PWM cable arrives I will be playing with that a little and obviously let you guys know thumb.gif

Wow, what a difference! Looks great and easy to work on if necessary. 87 seems high though. I would def use after market paste to see of that helps. Is your case in a cabinet? Is it vertical or horizontal? I dont know if you saw my pics, but I was getting low 60's under load (and quiet). Then I put an exhaust fan and the temps dropped down to low 50's. I'd also try to coil up/ zip tie some cable and tuck them away best as possible.

Like Whoanelly said, there has been a ton of mixed reviews with the Zalman. I was looking at the Samuel 17 yesterday and you have some excellent reviews and then you have others saying it doesn't cool as good. It leaves you hanging like ***, how can one review say its great and another says that it has certain issues.

Ok we should create a stick note/post for Best air cooling options. Doing a quick comb through the pictures of this thread this is what Ive come up with in terms of CONFIRMED cooling with decent temps:

Noctua NH-L12 [Confirmed by Rdliux, Legtom and WhoaNelly (me) on MSI]
AXP-100/Muscle [Confirmed by Nerix and to some extent Capt Zombie who might have got a dud on first try)
CoolerMaster GeninII [Confirmed by CrookeddHauser on a Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI Decent noise/temps. PIA to mount (only from back of MB post 621 on page 63)]

ITX30 Awaiting Mariolillo to verify addition of better thermal paste. (Idle temp good, but load temps were high)

Zalman CPS Quiet/Extreme [Confirmed by AfewTeamMates: no numbers posted but commented that is was quiet post 354 on page 36 of this thread ]

Zalman CPS Quiet/Extreme - Need confirmation from members here for Noise and Temp.

I'll add this tonight to the OP under the cooling section I had started. Can we also get the motherboards used for each cooler? I know we have had a lot of issues in this thread with compatibility.

Excellent, thanks. I will add these to the OP. thumb.gif

Yeah saw your pics, really nice temperatures for the place it is in. I have it vertical, on the bottom of a computer desk.
I already ordered the paste, hopefully that will solve it thumb.gif
