New CPU cooler, 160mm max height in Node 804 case - Page 11

post #101 of 131
What MC said.
If it's hot enough to melt or deform a line you have far more to worry about the the line. biggrin.gif Case air temps should only be 3-10c above room and top area of fin pack a couple degrees warmer then that.

There are titanium/carbon fiber composite fishing lines available. They're relatively cheap. Unless you purchase them in classical guitar string form, then they are pricey. However, with any elastic line, it will stretch so you will need to pre-stretch it. I suggest taking up classical guitar, buying a set of pricey Pyramid carbon strings and playing the hell out of it for 3-6 months. Then use the broken-in, but not broken B string as the tower support line. Not the fastest mod, but what price supporting the arts? ;-)

Or...could get a case that mounts the motherboard in the correct (horizontal) orientation and not deal with sagging cooler mounts or blisters on your fingers.

Yeah you know.. all those meteor showers we've been having. Might want to take my rig in from the patio outside tongue.gif

lolol I could insulate one of my electric guitar strings and use that thumb.gif

As for new case... didn't really find one that looked good. I haven't spent too much time on it though. I'm not sure I'd be able to get one anyhow.

Might have to think about that then.

Also, got everything plugged in (went to a different receptacle, waiting for the electrician) here is what temps look like:

Those temps look awfully good. Too good. You're either not OCin' enough or you mounted the cooler too well. Or you haven't run the full IBT meteor test. ;-)

Ahh yes hang on... 66 degrees F, so... ~19 C is my ambient temp.

Also, no IBT yet, and locked @ 4GHz for now. Auto voltage.

So those temps are fine? I know it is nice and chilly really but just making sure, before my temps were a little higher. I am in a new apartment and lower in altitude, though not by much.

They're fine. But, need to make that DC sweat with some IBT/Real Bench to say for sure.

Yeah load temps are what matter.. any suggestions for settings? I've never used either one.

IBT in standard mode - automatic thread count. 3-5 iterations to get a base assessment.

Real Bench - just run the standard test once - it can get very hot in a single pass. Since you're not overclocking (which is a punishable offense on OC, btw) no need to push for stability. If it's not stable at stock clocks...well...there's other issues. ;-)

Alright, I'll be back.

Results are in!

Quicker than I thought really.

I cleared min/max before realbench. I didn't before IBT because I'm pretty sure chrome wouldn't make this get too hot.


IBT:


Realbench:
