Need help and opinions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I received a CM Stacker 830 (it was a gift) and decide to change my current rig to that case. I asked in other forums about the rad position in that case and 3 people recommend me at the bottom so is going to be at the bottom. Now i'll be upgrading my single rad to a DD dual and tygon tubing. Also i'll be adding a Wb for the north bridge. My questions is and maybe yes or no if the TT smart fans are enough for the radiator or buy another fans like the Yate mediums?? I don't want to spend more money in fans. In my current case i have 5 smart fans 4 of them with fan controller and the other with pci fan controller.

I'll not be running SLI and I don't have plans to watercool the video card. I think 50°C is enough for idle.

thanks

50C for idle... O_o
thats insanely high.
i think the smartfans will be good enough, so if you're getting 50C now, you might want to reseat your WB.

My bad man for not specify. 50 C idle is from the video card. the cpu is idling @ 30°C. + for the help.

+ for your help.

Try Riva Tuner to max out the GPU fan speed, it dropped My GPU idle from 39-40º to 27ºC.

Ok, a few things:

- DON'T get a WB for the northbridge, it is completely unnecessary and will only result in more constriction and higher overall temps.

- DON'T get Tygon tubing. Even though everyone thinks it is the best, take it from my personal experience that the tubing is flimsy and WILL give you kinking issues. Pluss it is frickin' expensive. Stick with some masterclear.

- You will see a noticeable improvement by upgrading to a dual rad. I recommend doing that as soon as possible.

- Your fans are suitable now. Once you get a dual rad it may be a smart move to get some with more CFM.

Thanks man. I'll try later with another tubing but i have the Tygon right now. About the rad is the DD stealth 240. Since the Evga 590 has this little issue with system temps (northbridge going up to 60°C sometimes ). I upgrade it to a noctua tr-06 and it's working until I found the piece of metal is not enough strong to hold the HS in place so i decide to WC the northbridge but I'll take your recommendation and reapply thermal paste on NB and reseat the HS.

+ for you guyz
