But then it blows directly onto the graphics card, which is already plenty hot by itself. That's why I forced mine to blow towards the back of the case where the hot air can just get sucked out.

The 8800gtx has a very high operating temp limit. My card overclocked runs at a max load of 69C. Thats with the fan facing it. No big deal.

Robilar,
How difficult was it for you to get the 120 extreme on there, i'm considering getting one, but i'm not so sure about the size being a problem.

Ok the adventure begins:

the following takes place at 2:45 this afternoon (We'll make it like an episode of 24)

Opened my coolermaster stacker, removed the motherboard tray and disassembled the motherboard and zalman fan (and removed wiring for the zalman fanmate)

3:15 (following takes place etc). Begin reading diagrams for the thermalright. looks like a piece of cake (always beware when this happens)

3:22 (got snack) Have to pick up daughter in half hour from school but figure I can do it easily (at this point you know for sure I'm a guy)

3:23 install back plate, after cleaning off old as5 re-apply new as5. Put on the anti-vibration stickies (they are very tiny for big hands geez).

3:28 Trying to figure out how the bloody wire brackets will hold the fan in place!!!

3:58 race to get daughter from school

4:25 I'm back. Still can't figure out the wires.

4:45 Finally realize that the fan I am using has solid corners and prevents the wires from going into the correct spot (between the edges of the fan frame). Nowhere is this mentioned in the 1 page documentation!

4:48 Time for power tools!! Get out a jigsaw and proceed to cut out the corners of the silverstone fan. Manage not to cut the wires or myself. Fan looks like crap now but no window in the case so who cares? (other than me!)

5:01 fan now mounts correctly. Proceed to attach the heatsink. Then realize that the wires on the nb side are going to hit my thermaltake spirit II.

5:22 (10 minutes of swearing in there). Remove everything again and bend wire for thermalright so it won't hit anything.

5:28 begin to reassemble. So far so good. Put the motherboard back on its tray. Slide everything in. Re-wire everything.

5:56 Install the backplate which has the fan control (This fan is a mini-jet engine at 2900 rpm/110 CFM, needs to be turned down so the neighbours don't complain. Kinda sounds like a shopvac actually...)

6:06 Fire it up. Everything works! (Didn't forget anything for once). While sitting with a dumb grin on my face looking into the open side of my case I put my hand in to feel the airflow of the silverstone and realized i mounted it backwards! I even marked the airflow side but forgot the mark.

6:16 (more swearing, I also am likely going to hell now. at least its a dry heat...). Take the fan off (Very hard with clearance with the nb cooler) and reverse it.

6:22 Ok fire it up again and its working. Check the fan controller knob, works perfectly.

6:24. I start looking at the thermalright and realize the bloody thing is really tall... Will the door with the 4 120mm fans run into it? (this is usually the cliffhanger part but im lazy here). Sure enough the door bangs right into the heatsink... ARGH!

6:26 (too angry to swear now, wishing I was a postal worker). Take out one of the fans and its mount (fortunately coolermaster made them removable).

6:30 It fits!! (with literally 2mm to spare).

Put it all together and it works perfectly.


Results, running at 3.724 (14x multi 266 fsb) @ 1.47 Vcore, my load temps in orthos are stable at 53C (with ambient of 24c in room). normal load temps (gaming) are high 40's, idle at this level is 40C.

My next step is to start upping the vcore gradually in conjunction with fsb increases with a goal of 3.9 ghz.

I had the armor for over a year. It was a great case (I recently gave it to my cousin). One thing that may be an issue is clearance with the thermalright if you have the 25cm door fan.

Well, my artic freezer 7 pro isn't nearly as tall as the thermalright and I don't plan on upgrading that anytime soon so I should be alright.

Day 1...
1.Ordered equipment
2.Pulled out components from old case (opted for second 8800 instead of case)
3.Realized that air flow was going to be more of an issue
4.Got out air grinder, dermal, etc. (grunt! grunt!)
5.Proceeded to work on case (few mishaps but ok)
6.First coat of paint complete
7.Received new computer (components)
8.Rushed the remainder coats and clear coat... its shinny
9.Mounted Zalman 9700 (man that’s huge… I’m been working with blades for too long)
10.Droped mobo… at first inspection looked ok…
11.Proceeded to fit in case
12.Noticed ports did not line up and back hmm. Tried a little longer more…
13.Pulled mobo
14.Its bent… not the components but the circuit board!
15.Removed Zalmen, CPU, mem.
16.Boxing up to ship back tonight.

Will show pics after system is built (no means to download them).
