Temperature too high, need some tips/tricks! - Page 3

post #21 of 37
My friend suggested me to post my question here, i hope i am at the right place/forum.


You have, and welcome to the site - as it is an enclosed case, if you can have 2 fans pushing air in and one 1 out with the psu adding to the affect it would help immensely thumb.gif

I would recommend something like a pair of the superb Sanyo Denkei San Ace fans, sized 120x38mm, I believethey c an be had with PWM.

What the hell nleksan, i watched a video from those fans on youtube and... Jesus Christ do you want me to Airflow a transformer or something!? I need some good Airflow in my case, not Airbust the ***** out of it or make it fly! Sick fans but that's way too much! Turbines are those, i tell you turbines man!

pfff... those are weak fans tongue.gif

now, if you really want some STRONG fans

Update

After removing all the things you guys said and i removed the side panel from my case 'temporarly' (because this is not what i want to keep doing). The temperatures decreased a lot! i could hit 90 degrees with my cpu and now it takes a while for it to be able to hit the 80! Same story goes for my GPU, from 85-90 to 70-76. Now i am at work and when i get home afterwards i'll test my temps again and post a picture of Hw Monitor.

If you had really great airflow, you'd probably have temps even better than that - with closed case

most people use what airflow they need though without going crazy with it, especially those that don't like noise - but as you go past 200w of heat in your case and start to approach like 400-500 (a single powerful gpu, or multi-gpu etc) then it starts to become important as you see

http://www.thermalright.com/html/products/cpu_cooler/macho120.html
The thermalright Macho 120 it is then, thanks for your research doyll.
I chose the True Spirit 120 because the first picture on google had the same RAM as mine next to it (Crucial Ballistix). That would be atleast a relief to know it wouldn't hit my RAM, but i go as you (doyll) suggested for the TM 120. I will order it today.

Which fans should i chose?
Scythe Gentle Typhoon (1850RPM) - PWN: NO
Cooler Master Jetflo (2000RPM) - PWN: YES
Choice made: I will go for the CM Jetflo since i can't find anywhere in my country to buy the Typhoons and it is a bit more expensive though.

I'll try to order these today ASAP and will probably receive them in 2 days if i am lucky and post results!
What you've done by removing the front cover is remove the restriction on the intake fans.
Replacing them with good 1500-1800rpm PWM cooler / radiator fans will give you the needed airflow to overcome the resistance of the front cover..

Taking the side panel off (like said) prevents a massive buildup of heat in the case when you have horribly inadequate airflow, with a good case, fan setup etc it's prevented from happening in the first place; tbh i see a lot of people taking 780/290's or sli setups in new cases with like 2-3 stock 120mm fans

i prefer the old test of time ' the wind tunnel affect ' I have never liked the idea of fans being placed on every side of computer case, top, bottom, side and so on. One eddy of air is going to conflict with another, but those with rads, water cooled, that's a different story with different rules thumb.gif

My bad. Miss-read post. redface.gif

You are absolutely right about inadequate airflow.

We need more airflow through case than combined airflow of component fans. These new GPUs using 150-250w and having 2 and 3 fans move a lot of air to cool themselves. If intake fans do not supply enough air they re-ingest their own heated air.

ladcrooks' "wind tunnel" is a brute force attempt to supply cool air to components. In reality it takes very little more case airflow than component airflow is setup right. I suggest a 1.5 ration of case to component airflow, but my own Define R2 is about 1.1:1 ratio with component intake air temps only 2-3c above room temp.

Here are a couple of case temperature pics of an AIR 540

The problem here is that there's a BIG difference in power consumption. An oc'd 290 can pass 300w, while a 760, being locked at 1.212v, can sit around 150

you can't really call every GPU a "component" and use them the same - a lot of people do it for water rad calculations, and it always confused me

if temps are 15c lower with case side off, there are big, big improvements to be made
