Hey rob,

Temp. soln. Too lazy to pull the board now, about to change cooling at which time I'll pull the board and go through my "list" of things I want to do whilst the board is out.

NB and SB cooling are on the list..

Sense I’m building a system from scratch (my old one is to old is dying and beyond upgrading) price is up in the air. I’m hopping to keep it around $1500 total. I will be adding additional cooling as time goes on. This case would be the most I would spend bit I like the separate compartments and the 1000 series is tight in ps room. Man I with there was a showcase/store I could go to so I could look as cases… everything else you can spec but cases are a not only a matter of function but stile as well. My boss just build an amd sli machine (thus the bug) using the coolmaster case you now have. While a mess-load of fans/airflow I prefer channeling air then just more. Not a dig just an observation. Plus I like to look inside.

Any suggestions on cases (or components) is always welcome,

Derek

good idea.
post #1125 of 5659
is it worth watercooling the north and southbridges? i have heard that it isn't but this board seems to have a heat issue.

Thanks

Cabling was fine, i can see how ppl could have problems tho, but take ur time and its good, the built in cable ties help and allthough u cant really tell in the pic the cables are pretty much pushed right back to the plate so they dont block the airflow at all apart from the mobo power cable which sticks out a bit but not enough to block the airflow.

If u dont have a modular psu like me u can stuff all the extra unused cables underneath the bottom fan enclosure which doesnt effect airflow at all, and hides them perfectly.

There was a space to mount an internal 120mm fan inline with the front-top fan but wastn sure it would fit with the graphics card beign right nwext to it so left it off, i might have a go later at fitting it but it will be tight, the graphics card at the bottom now has more airflow than with a normal case coz the fan hangs over the psu so gets air direct form the bottom-front fan.

Overall, the CPU had dropped 13 degrees C from my previous case which was an asus vento 3600 and had also good airflow, and i still havent fitted the side fan yet. Not sure whether to have it flowing in or out.....

PICS ATTACHED

Yeah i agree, the extreme spirit 2 on my SB when iu touch it seems just above room temp, but the one on the NB almost burns my finger if i hold it for too long, i remounted my nb cooler today tho and rotated it a little im hoping it gives better results.

As long you don't have cables, on top of the mobo you fine.Look good.

The NB on this board apparently can reach 100c !

I think it would be worthwhile doing it.
post #1130 of 5659
then what about the mosfets? what do you use to cool those? you wouldn't watercool them would you? i have seen some pics of people who watercool the north and southbridges and they use dinky little stick on heatsinks but i see these on newegg and they look like they would do a good job, but do you need it?
