Best case fans I can get for positive pressure and GPU cooling.. - Page 6

post #51 of 76
If it is PWM it will one of very few motherboards that has PWM Cha fan header.

ASUS claimed a couple of their mobos had PWM Cha fan headers, showed them as such in manual, but in reality they were not. wink.gif

It's easy to figure out. Try running a PWM fan on it with PWM Splitter with PSU power. wink.gif
You need a splitter for the GPU. Test the CHA fan header with it.

I'll get that splitter from my last post and test with one of the new fans when the arrive smile.gif

doyll, I assume that your expertise in air cooling includes GPU heatsinks tongue.gif

I'm planning to get the MSI Gaming 770, I think it has one of the best cooler desings, two 100mm fans that should do a great deal on cooling, plus the fins are horizontal, meaning it will throw most of the air through the sides of the card.

Am I correct in my assumptions? smile.gif

Its a good card for cooling the GPU, the fans should be relatively quiet.

Like mam72 said should be okay.
Review shows it among the best.

Is the fan header accessible without removing cooler? Does MSI allow removing cooler without voiding warranty?

Appears the fan header is accessible. Not sure how much room there is to unplug it (white plastic on left)

Thanks to you both tongue.gif

I'll get that card as soon as I see it in $299 again biggrin.gif

Hey doyll,

Was looking at these heatsinks:

Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet Looks good, although maybe it is a bit noisy...

The one that really caught my attention was the Thermolab ITX30

Also found this video with noise test of different heatsinks, although there was no Thermolab, it would've been good to compare that one as well

What are you looking for in a cooler, does it have to be under a certain height (and or width)? Whats the budget?

Six of one and half a dozen of the other. I think you will be happy with either one.
ITX30 is slightly smaller, does cool slightly better (0.07c) and is slightly quieter (3.5dBA) in their testing. Assuming these measurements are accurate the 0.7c is too close to say it's better or worse. Most agree +/- 1-2c is margin of air, and 3-4dBA measurement is the amount of difference it takes for human ear to notice a difference in volume.

My TY100 fans do not sound like the video. All I hear from them is wind noise below 1750rpm and than a slight hum

It has to be smaller than 60mm in height. The case has a maximum height of 83mm, but a 15mm case fan will be on top of the board/cpu.
