Worried about CPU temps - Page 8

post #71 of 78
BTX had Intel, Dell, and Gateway all behind it, and it still didn't gain much traction in the marketplace. It just didn't provide enough benefit for people to switch over.

ATX in 2003-04 was no more entrenched in the marketplace than Baby-AT was in 1995-96, when Intel introduced ATX. But ATX quickly replaced AT in the market then.

The main reason Intel invented BTX was because of their Pentium 4 egg fryers and their propensity to run very hot, especially after Intel was forced to introduce factory overclocked models, rebranded Netburst Xeons, and the dual-core Pentium D in order to compete with the Athlon 64. So while Dell and Gateway followed Intel's lead and used BTX to keep their Prescott space heaters cool, that was as far as it went. Most of the enthusiast market weren't buying Netburst by then, because the A64 was superior to even the rebranded Xeon "Emergency Edition" chips, and cheaper to boot.

It took Conroe in 2006 for Intel to take that market segment back, and BTX wasn't necessary to keep Conroe cool. For most people, there was just no tangible benefit.

as far as roof, i don't think you need 2 exhaust fan. 1 rear and 1 roof fan is MORE then enough exhaust. in fact if you remove your expansion slot covers, it's likely you don't actually need the roof fans at all. people underestimate the amount of airflow that a single exhaust fan can provide. the rest of the air can be passively leaked out of the case w/o being forced out by another fan.

ehume have plenty of builds where there is no exhaust fans at all and his temps are better then most people's builds.



but he likes to cut his cases and i'm not a big fan of cutting cases so i would say leave 1 exhaust fan in there to boost the airflow abit.

I actually emailed Noctua because I had trouble deciding between the S12A and P12 and they basically told me to get P12 on intake and keep the S12A (since I actually bought two) as exhaust and on the HDD cage. I'm pretty sure that if I hadn't bought the S12A they would've simply told me to put P12 everywhere. Just seems like the S12A is best for an open case like a bench test rack. Not sure if it's because of the dust filter but the S12A makes a higher pitch or whiny noise than the other fans. I'm probably just gonna get a bunch of P12 fans but they're supposed to come out with the newer version called A12 and also an A 200mm one. Noctua on twitter told me something about a mid-2016 release. I guess I'll wait a little.

They pumped the A15 fan supplied with it to 1500rpm from their normal 1200rpm to get cooling up to par. That's not saying the A15 1500rpm is not a great fan, or that D15 is not a good cooler because they both are. But not as good as Noctua 'cultist' would like us to believe. wink.gif

I've been wondering, why not a F series fan instead of an A one? Cause of more noise or they don't make F series at that size?

Good question. Look up the F series on their website to see if it they make on the right size, and if they do post the specification and I will tell you if it's because of more noise. Simply put, If you don't have the time to 'help yourself by lookng on their website at the fan's size and specification for yourself, I definitely don't have time to 'serve' you. tongue.gif

I can spend hours reading specs on their website, which I have, but it doesn't answer the fact that I was asking your opinion on the subject. You gave your opinion on the cooler with the faster a15 fan, I was wondering if you had any thought about an F fan on that cooler.

But do you 'spend hours reading specs'? You asked if they will fit. I don't know if they make the 'F fan' in the right size. I'm not looking at 'F fans'. You can look at the specifications and see if they make one that fits and if they do, you can then ask me if model F-xyz fan is better on the cooler. which model is it? That is information I will not spend time looking up for you. Like I said, I help people, I don't 'work' while they do something else like play games. Sorry if that sound harsh, but I've already wasted too much time on this Lke I said, tell men what 'F fan' fits and I can give an opinion. thumb.gif

Then I guess my question wasn't clear enough, I'm not asking you what fits or not, I was asking what you'd think of a focused flow fan instead of a "hybrid" A fan. Just seems like a more obvious solution.

Seriously? You think

is a an unclear, but what you are now asking is? What is a 'focused flow fans' and what is a ' "hybrid" A fan' ?? I'm sorry but I don't understand what you are trying to determine or why.
