I found the TRUE Spirit 140 Power for $47, so I ended up going with that. Looking forward to ditching my h100i.

I' m pretty sure you will be quite happy with it. $47 is a good price! Please let use know your thoughts after you get it up and running. I usually do a "dry run" practice install with any cooler I have not used before. It helps to be sure everything is fitting as it should and to know where to set cooler so crossbar lines up and screws start without any problems. The less movement there is once cooler is set onto TIM the better. A little wiggle is okay, but no tipping a sit will allow air to get into TIM and can cause problems. thumb.gif

I got the cooler installed yesterday. Mounting was pretty easy. It's literally a bigger version of my old TRUE 120 Extreme. The 8mm heatpipes are massive.
Idle temps have gone up to 39c from 31c on my H100i, but load temps have dropped to 52-53c from 55-56c. My GPU temps went up 10c, I added a side fan back in and brought it down about 5c.
My setup is as follows:

Case - Define R4, all HDD racks removed. Top exhaust vents are closed, all PCI bracket covers removed.
Fans: 2x 140mm XSPC radiator fans front intake, 7v
1x140mm Fractal Silent R2 case fan as bottom intake, 7v
1x120mm Corsair SP120 side intake 'normal' speed setting in BIOS.
No exhaust fan.
GPU: Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 970, fan shroud removed with 2x120mm SP120s zip tied on 'normal' setting in BIOS.

Running Unigine Valley I'm getting 76c load after adding side intake fan, was hitting 81c before. This is up from 72c load with the h100i and no side intake.
My goal now is to bring CPU idle temps back down to around 30c and get my GPU load temps back down to the high 60s/low 70s. I did use the thermal paste that came with the TS 140, perhaps I should have used my AS Ceramique?

At a guess it sounds like case airlfow is not as good as it should be. But don't confuse case airflow with number of case fans. While fans to play a major part in airflow, how that air is channels .. the path is flows through the case is at least equally as important. Key is to remove heated exhaust air to supply component with air as close as possible to room temp. "Ways to Better Cooing" linked in my sig has topics on the how to and whys. 1st post is index. Click on appropriate topics to see them.

I've read your guides several times. biggrin.gif
I didn't have time to mess around with the fans much last night. My suspicion is that the bottom intake fan is causing airblow around the GPU. I have noticed that in all configurations (at least with a CLC cooling the CPU), my GPU loves having a side fan.
I used to have a NZXT fan controller with temperature probes on it, but it....caught fire.... so monitoring air temps inside the case is problematic for me right now.

Simple remote lead thermometer like used for aquariums, terrariums, or simple indoor outdoor thermometer with remote sensor It's all there.

After quite a bit of testing, I ended up with side fan as intake, bottom fan off and one of the top exhaust ports open, CPU fan set to maximum. GPU load temps dropped down to 70c and CPU idle is now down 29-31c.
I've read that adding another TY-147 fan will drop load temps by another 3-4c?

At idle you might see a 3c difference. At full speed, 2c is about all you would gain. If you want more cooling, put a TY-143 on it and increaseairflow to cooler by 70cfm .. because that is what it takes to supply cooler with cool air when TY-143 speeds up toward it's maximum potential .. while it performs and sounds the same up to 1300rpm. above about 1800rpm make sure there are no loose objects cosle by, and wear ear protection. . tongue.gif
Sense you have TRUE Spirit 140 Power (I think) it would be better to discuss this in that thread instead of Macho thread.

At least one batch here has had some extreme QC issues.
