Corsair Carbide Air 240 Owner's Club - Page 206

post #2051 of 3695
Thanks.

I originally had the fans with the front radiator fans blowing in and exhausting both up and back but I am now trying them the other way around. So the front fans are blowing air out the front and the other fans are all bringing air in.

It seems backwards but it seems to run cooler than before and better positive pressure.

I just replaced an EVGA GTX970 with the Giga GTX980 XTREME and now it all seems cooler and quieter.

Interesting, because with this fans setup you're throwing all the hot air from the gpu directly to the cpu rad, and temps "should" be higher if compared with the first setup...
Also, the case is in a place where the hot air from the psu is retained, and will eventually get inside the main chamber by the back/top case fans...

So far CPU temps are slightly higher but the rest of the case are slightly lower but all the temps are pretty low all of the time. I do have a fan in the PSU compartment to move some air for the hdds and some 'custom' feet on the bottom to raise it up about an inch or so.

The place I have it is definitely not great for airflow so I'm trying some different setups. I will try this for a week or so and see how it goes and report back.

Awesome graphics card score man!
+22k points = \o/
What is your gpu oc setup?

My best is 14.887 graphics card score with a msi gtx 970 gaming 4 (1627mhz/2003mhz/+51mv, all this with afterburner and stock bios).

My best is 14.887 graphics card score with a msi gtx 970 gaming 4 (1627mhz/2003mhz/+51mv, all this with afterburner and stock bios).

managed to get these OC results

-Room temps at 80F = 26C

-GPU CC 1523Mhz MC-8202MHZ Stable (1556+ Benchmarking only )
-GPU Temps 40c max Load Benchmarking, 28-35c gaming ,temps idle 25-28C!, (reading using GPUTweakII, GPU-Z )

-CPU 4.7Ghz @ 1.34V, 1.35 using adaptive mode Tested with IBT,ROG Bench,AIDA64,X264 16T,
-CPU Temps , 70-74c Max load it ever reached. 25-30C in game (FO4 so far) , idle temps 24-28C

I can push the CPU OC to 5.0Ghz for Benchmark and push the GPU a little more but why? i did that score with a quick fast OC. i really don't know what is a good score on a single 980ti, if I remember 3 years ago i did about 16K firestrike with 2x Titans in SLI and a 3770K @ 4.6Ghz. this just shows you this card is a beast, i can't wait till ASUS releases their PG348Q so i can do some 1440p gaming, i can OC RAm,CPU,GPu a little more to get a better score but as much as i want to i really built this Rig for gaming and play! as for games im playing FO4 for the past few days and i just can't believe the temps, i play for hours and GPU Load at 34% never went over 36C i even played for hours with all fans completely silent and it reached 45C, CPU In games hovers from 28C-40C max. but maybe because all this 1080P playing the card is sleeping. thumb.gif

You can "simulate" a 1440p or even 4k monitor for games using nvidia's DSR in nvidia control panel.
I'm pretty sure FO4 in 4k DSR will use MUCH more load than 34%. Of course, temps, ram usage and vram will rise as well.
