Hi @Esarus. @Riktar54has the right idea. Most Define users having heat problems find a bottom intake helps a lot. If that does not solve it, better front intakes make a huge difference. Many of us use 3x 140mm fans like PH-F140SP, F140XP, F140MP, Thermalright TY-147A cut square (square ones to be released soon), new FD Venturi are good, etc. to name a few. Having case fans on speed control just like CPU and GPU cooler fans makes a huge difference. When components work hard and generate heat they need more airflow. Would you consider setting your GPU or CPU cooler fans at a fixed speed somewhere between idle and full speed? I wouldn't. So why should we do it with our case fans? They supply the air to our CPU & GPU, so if they are fixed speed they are either supplying too much air or too little air almost all the time. Modern CPU and GPU make lots of heat when working hard, so need case fans that work with them, not independently. wink.gifPost #48
is about Define cases.
Post # 36 is how to square T-14x series fans.
Post # 23 is how to make 120mm mounting to 140mm square fan square mounting.
Post # 4 is how to setup PWM fans with CPU and/or GPU speed control.

Thanks for the tip guys! I will definitely try that as soon as possible. If that doesn't help I will look at new casefans and getting them all connected to the motherboard!

Try that, get them connected to motherboard so they are speed controlled, opening case front door when gaming usually helps a lot too, then if not giving enough airflow and / or don't want the door open get better intake fans.

@Esarus, you are getting good advice adding the bottom fan, and I suggest following doyll's suggestion to raise the case a little when you do this. Post 15 has details.

If you have not yet removed the PCI blanks, then that is also on the list of suggestions, especially when you get more airflow coming in. it needs a way out.

And, the non-windowed R5 will take another 140mm on the side, and if this is also set to be an inlet. It will give the GPU even more cool air, and it will have no-where to go but out the back once all the PCI blanks are removed.

Please let me know how it all works out.

Holy freaking static pressure! These GT 2150 fans running at 40%(990rpm) push same amount of air as full speed sw2. Then running these at full 2150 are just pushing air through the vents. The fans are quiet too. I'm very impressed with these gentle typhoons.

Does this mean you didn't even notice the fan isn't white? tongue.gif

Ran my computer for 24H with only the intake fan running at 300RPM. Interesting.
First two spikes are two matches of LOL. I left the computer idling at the 20H mark. Regular desktop usage from 15H to 11H (browsing, watching a movie). Temperatures are lower because the window was open and air temp outside got lower at night. 10H onwards is idle, with the window closed. Last spike is a match of LOL and starting to back up my GOG library. Ambient temps (both at the case intake and inside the case) were 24C during 24H-14H time period, then dropped to about 21C, and rose to 26C after I closed the window for the night.

For now I'll keep running it the same, and see how it deals with some light work once I have to do something.

@Loladinas
Nice!
May I ask what the CPU & GPU loads were when temps peaked? Just curious. tongue.gif

I really like OHM, but sadly it does not support Skylake. frown.gif

Considering LOL was the most demanding thing I ran on it in those 24 hours - not much smile.gif

It's been nearly two years since it was updated. It doesn't support Z97/DC fully either. Voltages are wrong and it's reporting some weird temperatures on mobo, that aren't there. I just used this in this instance because it does the logging and graphs all nice and neat.

Just started to mod the front of my TJ08-E to fit the 4x 92mm fans...gonna be a tight fit! Will post the final results here when its complete.
