Corsair H110 in Cooltek W2 case... boiling GPU - Page 4

post #31 of 75
Ok here is a headsup to what I have done with my setup

I initially had the airflow pushing from the back in, and the bottom up, then out towards the front (fans pushing through rad)

This created some thermal issues where hot air was being blown into the radiator, raising CPU temps to 70c at stock!

Switched the fans around so now drawing air in from the front (and always in from the bottom) then blowing out the back of the case, now the CPU load temps are barely 50c

her is a pic for my best performing cooling setup so far

thanks - what abt GPU temps ? Is it still MSI R9 290 ?

Thanks

Haha yes, still the darn 290, which is being replaced when the sales hit after Christmas, going to get a 970 for a 50c reduction in the case smile.gif
R9 290 still hits 89c, but it is 3c cooler than when I had an air cooler on the CPU.

Damn - these MSI aftermarket coolers aren't keeping up in my opinion.
I'm judging from my R9 290 which barely hit 72 under pretty tight space conditions(Power Color PCS+) and also like Sapphire Vapor X which is even cooler than mine....

Already got rid of it, in favor either gtx 970(dislike tremendous coil whine) or next offer from AMD(whenever this will take place)

Actually there is a guy in the thread who has Asus Strix GTX 970 - and he kept on having high temps - so case still a riddle for me - if it worth buying or not....
What I like in it:
- dual compartments design
- allowance for high GPU/CPU cooling options
- easy peasy SLI setup - say from 2 GTX 970 which will be directly cooled by front intake fans
- 2 position fan switch + stop option.
- ability to fit in my Seasonic X1050(which is pretty long)
- pretty compact considering what you can fit inside

dislike
- no sound dampening material
- no top ventilation option which would allow installation of more fans, or natural heat dissipation
- bit weird USB ports/buttons location
- perhaps more color options - like gunmetal finish ?
- not sure if able to cool down efficiently.

pls let me know your feelings abt the case - I need a case which I can't hear at night on low to medium load(websurfing, movies etc)

what would like to fit in:
- Thermalright Macho rev A or Scythe Kotetsu
- Semi passive GPU like Asus Strix 970 or MSI Gaming 970
- quiet WD Red HDD + SSD
- well semi passive PSU I already have....

thanks

wow im loving you guyszzz builds..
dude with proper rad..ect..what cpu block is that..looks so sweet..

other +all dudes/dudettes...
just mod the top panels for more airflo..simple and quick sulotion..same with front..replace with mesh for improved airflo...
oh..ho ho ho..merry xmas

Hi Sader0

Well the case is the best I have had so far to work with
I came from a Corsair Vengeance C70 to this,

The dual compartment design is fantastic, literally the ONLY downside to this case is the 3.5/cd mounting bracket which is a little limited (should do 3 drives but only does 2) you can see my comments on that in my build log.

It is incredibly sturdy, we are talking Lian-Li quality for a good $50 less

Cable management is a breeze (yeah I know I still need to do that)

airflow is actually better than people think, and if you do some airflow reading on these forums the likes of @doyll will tell you that top ventilation isn't everything it's all about positive air pressure (more going in than coming out).

The angled front panel has a large gap at the bottom, the case draws plenty of air in there, just make sure you suck in the front and push out the back, it's also helpful to install fans at the bottom to push air into the case too.

I would say (especially since Nvidia Maxwell 9xx) that graphics cards are in general going to run much cooler as part of the remit for hardware manufacturers from government agencies is to reduce power consumption, which in turn should reduce heat. So even with my nuclear R9 290 the case is managing ok temps, my GPU is only hitting 50c in BF4 with the GPU hitting 89c (yes its dropped 3c since I turned the fans around).


@xpredator
don't know if you're asking about my cooler, but its the Raijuntek Triton, and does indeed look sweet and is built from what definitely looks like off the shelf connections and hoses, I will probably upgrade the rad to a copper one, so its all copper.

yes i was asking about the cooling setup...
and the like off Doy ll isn't always right...having to much air going in isn't always best...its better to have a good balance rather than forcing air into the system and in turn hoping it'll escape from all the crevasses all over..and full positive is not ideal...

ice rigs bros...im just hanging here to see who has what..dont heed to much to my presence here

Hi Peeps
an update here (along with updates in the build log)

I found out that fan speeds make a massive difference to my cooling performance which I test using BF4 that seems to drive everything as hot as its going to go, without being a crazy synthetic benchmark.

The new BeQuiet fans I have on my Rad

have dropped the temperature vs the Raijintek Triton stock fans by 5c, which is nice, hitting about 48c max under load (this is the highest core which is 3-4c above the rest), but this is running them at full speed (2200rpm) not seriously loud for the likes of me, but the knock on effect is causing the GPU to heat up an extra 4c, hitting 88/89c after a while of BF4.

Dropping the BeQuiets to a slower speed, causes the CPU temps to max out about 56c, and the GPU around 83/84c.

I was wondering if it may help to move the 240m rad to the bottom of the case?

Anyone tried this?, I will probably have a go just to appease my inquisitive side, but armed with more knowledge can't hurt smile.gif

p.s. quick question, push air into or pull air out of the Rad?

Why has no one tried modding this cases top for their rads?

Nice fans..wish i could try those..
Id try front intake fans
then move your rad to bottom pulling air out towards the bottom..why dont you add a gpu block or uni block to drop that temps..that is very hot..ouch seems bf4 is a bigger resource hog than bf3 was
post #40 of 75
I have learnt never to have bottom fans pushing air out of the case, always intake at bottom smile.gif

I don't want to mod the case yet enjoying the aesthetics
will report back after rad move

GPU will be replaced eventually, looking for Big Maxwell smile.gif
