[Official] Thermaltake Core V1 Owners' Club - Page 95

post #941 of 1869
Hey guys. I'm new here. I just want to share my Suppressor F1 with a Deepcool Gammaxx 300. PCpartpicker doesn't show it as a compatible CPU Cooler even though the height of this cooler is 135.7mm NOT 141mm(which they claim in reviews). I wanted to share this just in case you're looking for a budget CPU Cooler for your Core V1 or Suppressor F1.

There's still a 4-5mm clearance with the top panel attached.

Hi all

I am planning on building my first PC and I have picked out the components below:

Corsair 16GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 3000MHz
Asus Z170I Pro Gaming motherboard
EVGA 650w G2 Gold power supply
Noctua NH-C14S CPU Cooler – 140mm
Windows 10 Home USB pen drive retail
Samsung SM951 256gb NVME M.2 SSD
Intel i7 6700k CPU
Thermaltake Suppressor F1 case

I am pretty happy with most of it apart from the CPU cooler. I can't decide between the Noctua NH-C14S top down style cooler or the Noctua NH-U9S tower style cooler. There are no fans in the top of the case so would a top down cooler work well with the airflow through the case from the 200mm fan?

The price of the NH-C14S is about £80 and for that I could buy a Corsair H80i GT AIO watercooler but I'm not sure about watercooling (pump noise, risk of leaks etc). The NH-U9S is about £43 so quite a big difference.

I won't really be overclocking my PC straight away but it would be nice to have the option in the future without changing cooler.

What do you guys think? Would the C14S work ok with the airflow, is the U9S sufficient or for £80 would you just get a water cooler instead of an air cooler?

could this case fit in carry on luggage ? I know the Fractal Design node 304 fits, just barely, but this has different dimensions, although they seem to be roughly the same size. FD304 specifications are: Case dimensions (W x H x D): 250 x 210 x 374 mm Case volume: 19.5 Liters Net weight: 4.9 kg. I am trying to decide between these two cases, need one I can carry on.

Although the official stats from Thermaltake is that Core V1 has maximum clearance of 140mm, but in reality it is 150mm. Any cooler with max height below 149mm will fits.

That is good to know, it means the Noctua NH-C14S should fit even with the fan on top (overall height 142mm) if RAM clearance becomes an issue .

It bugs me a bit that the case isn't just a touch taller. The higher end Noctua tower coolers are an overall height of 160-165mm. If they made the case literally 20mm taller then we would be able to squeeze these in and it would open up a lot more choice for air coolers. The biggest tower cooler for this case that I have found uses a 92mm fan, after that you have to look to top down cooling or water cooling.

Just changed the tubes, the liquid and the paste.
I also added a led stripe (bitfenix alchemy 2.0)
New Stuff:
PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT
EKWB Ekoolant Evo Premix

hello

i mentioned sometime ago that I was not happy with my gfx card temps under mid to heavy gaming,reaching 80degC and close to max fan speed(4,000rpm).not only he noise but also the lifespan of the card itself being pushed at this kind of temps.

its a Gigabyte 750ti model natively slightly overclocked and which had not great review about colling design (heatsink and fan) so I would say my fault,not the V1 case design


but I am thinking to improve the situation and I have 2 Options in mind (low cost ones)

Option1

adding 2 arctic f8 fans at the back of the case to get a proper push pull flow
I am using the same cpu cooler than level32 thread poster here with the original 200mm front fan




Option 2

modding the card with either adding another fan on top of the existing one (silly?) or completely removing this tiny fan from the card and replace it with a larger diameter one

what do you guys reckon about the merit of these 2 options

Option1 is super easy to implement but I am not convinced it will ahve a great effect on GPU temps more on the CPU I believe,but correct me if I am wrong

Option2 is more of a DIY job but not that difficult to achieve when time permits over the week-end and I feel it would have more cooling effect


again,appreciate your views

PS this is crazy how this case push you to think mods and stuff,really great design and fantastic bang for your bucks over here in Japan vs the competition!

Send a pic of what you are refering to. If I get what you are saying, you might need longer screws and spacers...

Love the carbon fiber wrap. What is that controller for in place where the drive is supposed to be?
