[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club - Page 91

post #901 of 1769
Hi guys,

Just created an account here and this is my first post; in a nutshell sorry I'm French but this is clearly the best place to talk about computers (I have been on this forum for few months already as a guest), and am in the process of upgrading a rig I built 5 years ago when I was still a student on a budget.

That build was mostly made of second hand pieces and delivered a great value for its price (case Silverstone SG05 for 75 pounds, i7 2600 for 160, a small GTX560 etc).
Anyways back in November I got myself a ASUS GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini[ , a small card that would easily fit in the SG05.

That purchase triggered a desire to generally improve my rig and after a lot a research i went ahead a bought a Suppressor F1 last week. I'm very happy about it apart from the fact that you cannot flip it at 90° to have the window on the side.
Here are current pictures, I built it quickly as I am actually waiting for a Corsair Rm550x , a couple of red led strips & SARA cables for, hopefully, a great look!




Fun fact, I was first going for a black & blue theme but read that the blue colour is high on the colours spectrum it actually keeps you awake, since the case sits in my room I then decided to go for red.
Now what bothers me is that the temperatures are pretty high in there as soon as I play any game really, my GPU is getting pretty hot and it feels that the hot air is not exhausted well from the case, the motherboard goes up to 60°c and even the front panel gets hot!

Here are all my components, I was wondering what do you think would be the best thing to do, keeping in mind that I am open to switch to a AIO watercooling (does that imply getting rid of the 20cm front fan?); my initial idea was to change my cpu heatsink for a vertical one since this case allows it, together with a push/pull that would exhaust more air outside of the case.
I am planning to change motherboard/cpu/ram in a year or two, so I don't want a solution that would become obsolete when that happens.

Prolimatech Samuel 17 CPU Cooler Heatsink
SSD CRUCIAL M4 64 GO SATA REVISION 3.0
Intel Core i7 2600
Motherboard Asrock H67M-ITX/HT
G.Skill Kit Extreme3 2 x 4 Go PC10600 Ripjaws CAS 9
ASUS GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini
Seagate 4TB/8GB Serial 3.5 SSHD
And finally the Thermaltake SUPPRESSOR F1

Looking forward to hear from you!

bienvenue ca fait plaisir de voir des Francais ici...

if you could share bit more about the temps you are getting on the cpu and the gpu itself.how do you control fan speeds,which software?

your case is not the core v1 that is the center of this thread,the core v1 has open meshed front panel to push in cool air.

i have very different mobo/CPU/GPU and indeed using a thermaltake NIC31 cooler with 120mm fan helped so I dont reach the mobo temps you are suggesting

tiens nous au courant

Thank you for your answer Olivier.

I don't really control the fans speed, had a try at the asus gpu tweak software (to downclock the GPU) but it's not very user friendly and won't save my custom settings. If i can't have something that won't let me add my settings once and have run automatically on startup I prefer not to bother.

Wasn't sure how to show you what's happening at a more granular level so I ran 3D Mark and took a screenshot of Open Hardware Monitor on my second screen while running Firestrike (got 9200 points).
Weird thing happened during the first run, I noticed that my front fan had stopped working, but it actually did not influence the results
.

Here is a screenshot:



More generally the system seems to run pretty hot at idle, it's 22°c in the room right now and I the CPU is at 44°c, GPU at 42 and motherboard 41°c I guess, those temps look weird to me 112/-25/41

Also I know this is a thread for the V1 but good luck finding anyone reviewing or even owning the F1!

Download MSI afterburner. That'll allow you to set and save custom clock and fan speed profiles for the GPU.

Also, do you have 80mm fans installed on the rear exhaust? And how are the side panels oriented(where are the venter panels and the windowed panel)?

And I think the F1 is similar enough to the V1 to use the same thread. When I looked at it, the only difference I saw was the front panel. Everything else looked pretty much identical

I installed MSI Afterburner, it was easy to set my parameters and now it uns automatically when I start my computer.
The GPU is downclocked a which hopefully will help a me a little bit to have a cooler and and more silent machine.

I would need a fan hub in order to add a 80mm fan, do you recommend it? As I said previsouly I was wondering if a change of heat sink would help.

When it comes to the side panels i left the default configuration with the window on the top
post #906 of 1769
I would get some 80mm in the back. It helped my case a lot. I also switched the side panels around so the window was on the right side and that vented panel on top. The vent sits right above the GPU which allows some extra heat dissipation. The combination of the rear fans and panel configuration, as well as a slight GPU under clock lowered max temp on my GPU from about 85c to about 70c. I think the CPU cooler is probably fine. I have a downward blowing style coooler as well and rear fans also seemed to help a little bit too

Hello everybody. I'm new to this site, PC building, and PC gaming. Console gamer since 1992. I am doing a lot of research before my first build but I have absolutely settled on the V1 as my case. I know I'm new but I'm not scared of attempting mods on my first build as I've had to do some fabricating for machines at work over the years. To the point (sorry), before get to purchasing anything (waiting on tax return) I would like to have as much of my build planned as possible. If anybody is willing to spend the time or share their info would you please give as many dimensions as you have or are willing to give? Right at this second one of the things I am currently interested in is trying to squeeze a 240 radiator in the case. Possibly with the ports on the outside of the case and the tubing looping back into the case. Thoughts? Either way I would like to unload ideas on paper while I'm forced to wait for the cash to set this case in my lap an form the final plans. Basically I'm impatient please help.

Hi guys, I'm building a system with this case starting from an ASUS Z170i Pro gaming and a SSD M.2 SM951 and I'm a little worried about temperatires that the ssd can reach under the motherboard.
How could I improve it?
Thanks for any suggestion! thumb.gif
post #909 of 1769
Hard to say tprice, have you had a look at what other owners have done?

Naruto, SSDs can handle heat so I wouldn't worry about that. The front 20cm fan will do the job and if you want to make sure you have enough airflow add one or two 8cm fan in the back. By the way hard drives rather go on the side, not below the motherboard.
post #910 of 1769
Maxime, yes I have looked and there are some really cool ideas. I'm not completely set on the components for the build so my cooling needs are still up in the air a bit and I want to explore as many ideas as I can come up with. Do you by chance happen to know roughly how much space is left internally on top and bottom with a single 120mm rad mounted in the front? Could a tube res. be mounted horizontally above the rad and the pump below or could the res be mounted vertically next to the rad? Sorry I just have so many questions I cant answer until my very own v1 arrives. Thank you for the reply btw.
