i have a antec 620 hooked up to a ex360 rad and gaming my temps dont go over 45c thats with 100mv extra on a 290x

Agreed. Double thick 120 Rads such as the H80 or Asetek 570LC will see 4-6C drops overall.
Not sure where Pinko getting his info from
post #2375 of 6391
I finally got the G10 up and running in my new case with a H75. The install was a bit of a PITA since the instructions were not that great.

Here are a few pics for now, I'll have to stop at Microcenter tomorrow to pick up a few more cables.





I am thinking of actually placing an AF120 right in front of the PCI-e slot where the MSI 970 is at, this way I can blow a ton of cold air right into GPU. I do have room for one more fan there which you can see in the second picture and it would be in front of my AIO.

I am waiting for FrozenCPU to receive the backplate for my card, I'd like to add that for some extra support now that the cooler is not on there anymore.

The NZXT fan is not bad, would you guys recommend going with a Noctua fan or anything else? If I did go with Noctua, which 92mm fan would be good to go with?

Unigine Valley at 1.200v and 1080/1550 = 70 degrees

After:
Unigine Valley at 1.000v and 650/1000 = 40 degrees
Unigine Valley at 1.200v and 1080/1550 = 50 degrees

Absolutely perfect!

Much lower temps all around.. and much less noise compared to the XFX DD heatsink (the fans whined at certain RPMs).

Thanks guys.

Hi guys,

Having some troubles.. I reseated my cooler since I repainted a part of my shroud.

First couple of times, my H55 wasn't making correct contact with the die. Temperatures skyrocketed quickly when I tested with Unigine.

Now I've got the contact down, but temperatures are still roughly around 8 degrees higher than they were before.. I think it's a contact issue as I've tried to reseat it a total of several times now, but I'm so perplexed at why I can't get the same temperatures I was getting before. I don't think it's the ambient temperature because my i5-4590 idles at 28-29..

Only difference this time around is that I'm using Arctic Silver 5 versus Arctic Cooling 5, which wouldn't make such a drastic change.

280x + H55 at 60 degrees after 15 minutes of Unigine Valley. Idling at 33-34 degrees instead of 28. Is this something to worry about? 60 degrees is still not bad.. but I would like to get it perfect. The frustrating part is the constant reseating, and all the cabling and screwing that I have to do.

What do you suggest?

That fan would blow right on the vrms yes? That would be perfect.

I did swap to Nanoxia deep silence fans and they are quieter and have better performance as well. I have a love hate relationship with Noctua. But I had no "need" to swap the fan on the G-10, though the fan that comes with it is ugly IMO, it is a good fan and rns quietly and performs efficiently, again IMO.

And for gods sake man, wipe those fingerprints off the top of the G-10 biggrin.gif

I'll go ahead and add that AF120 to the side, I just need to order a fan controller now since I am up to 4 fans in this case.

The way I set things up in my case is on the right side the H60 is pulling air in, in the front there is an AF120 blowing air into the case, then next to that is the H75 which is exhausting and then the fan I add will be an AF120 that will blow air over the GPU.

I'll just need to order one of those fan controllers we were talking about.

My H75 is making some gurgling/running water sounds, in the Hydro Club thread they told me there could be bubbles in it. What is the best way to try and get those out?

Have you changed the fan speed on the rad since your previous testing?

I would have the CPU rad as an intake at the front and the GPU rad as an exhaust at the top or back. Might have to get creative with the hose routing but you'll have much better interior case temps.
