I agree with all the benefits of air cooling, but it can be a hassle. rolleyes.gif I just tought of the SST FT05 and how that could make a lot of things easier since it's fairly straight forward blasting air bottom to top. With Gaming G6 or Strix DCIII and their fin alkleignmend one could get good temps with nice acoustics. But well, would coast me 1K more for that system and i have no clue if i will have that budget.

I know what FT05 is. Nice case, but be careful what GPU is used. If the GPU heatpipes are too long on the down side they will not work properly.

No idea what your other two text/number combinations are.

Gaming G6 and Strix DCUIII are the names of MSI's and Asus' GTX980Ti bzw the modelspecific coolers.





The fins go perpendicular to the FT05's airflow and would benefit not only in the fanless mode to keep the cards cool. Sadly there are no tests regarding SLI in the FT05.

a little help please, next month I will buy the phantek box pro m case along with phantek fan hub, I can connect my noctua nh-U12P not PWM and my four Noiseblocker M12-3 fans (not pwm also) to the fan hub and connect this to CPU fan connector on the motherboard and thus control the speed of fans by bios, that is correct?

"Vertical vs. Horizontal Case Cooling"
by Puget Custom Computers; Matt Bach; 09/08/2011
https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Vertical-vs-Horizontal-Case-Cooling-89/page2



The below is from the Q&A for the FT02 on Silverstone's site. http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=242&area=en
There are two main types of heat pipes used in popular aftermarket coolers, they are groove and powder. Groove heat pipes are very susceptible to gravity while powder heat pipes are less so. To achieve best performance in either heat pipe technology, they need to be placed horizontally or have the heat source side located below the other end of the heat pipe. We recommend choosing and installing components with heat pipes carefully by taking into consideration of the following examples:

Motherboard:

The orientation of an enthusiast motherboard in a normal ATX case



The orientation of an enthusiast motherboard in the FT02



As the illustrations above show, most enthusiast motherboards with heat pipes will work fine in the FT02, the heat source is located below other parts of the heat pipe.
CPU cooler:
Horizontal style cooler



Good orientation Good orientation Bad orientation

Many CPU coolers can be rotated when installing on motherboards, the illustration here shows a SilverStone NT06-E

VGA cooler




The illustration here shows a VGA cooler that will not work well in the FT02 because the heat source side (touching the GPU) ends up being located higher than the other end.
See the Q&A for the FT02 on Silverstone's site. http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=242&area=en

I have seen some much more detailed data on heatpipe orientaiton in VGAs, but can't find it now. frown.gif

That cooler should be okay. The problem happens when pipes in the down position are too long and gravity slows or stops the wicking action that draws the liquid back to GPU chip. This caused the water to puddle in the lower end of pipe and do nothing .. meaning the heatpipe does not move heat away from GPU block. wink.gif

That is correct. Just keep in mind the case fans will only be changing speed dependent on CPU load / heat, not GPU load / heat.

Is there a guide how to setup the fan curve in the bios?

Asus has their own software package. No idea how well it works,but most of them work pretty good. They usually are an interface from window to bios so curves can be tweaked to perfection while doing our thing in windows. They don't need to be running exempt when changing settings. Most can even be removed completely after we are done tweaking.

thanks doyll, for the website calculator. it was really cool to use. i guess with 6 fans @ 26dba each, the total only comes to around 34dba . very nice!
post #239 of 1039
I took doyll's advice and replaced the stock case exhaust fans with gentle typhoons and not only is it quieter, the airflow across the board seems to be much improved. thumb.gif

Thanks guys! Always nice to hear how info works out. thumb.gif
Much of what I post is what I found / learned from somewhere else on web.
