Q6600/ TRUE / 780i / COSMOS 1000 / 8800GT SLI

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
here they are. any comments/suggestions for other things I can do to it?
And yes, I will replace the 2 stock fans that are left soon. Im trying to think of something creative for the HDD cage.







the TRUE with antec tricool


top


cute fan control 1


...and fancontrol2 with the cold cathode control right on the left of it (pci slot thingy)





tape around bottom intake helps direct airflow to the 8800gt's.


behind HDs


front intake with 2 fans for push-pull

Correction: do NOT, i repeat, NOT rep me. is this better now?

i would take half them fans out lol!

the push-pull on the front of the case made no diffrence to my temps.

i put a 120mm fan on the bottom of the HD rack and removed the bottom 3 cages, this also made no diffrence.

the top stock fan needs to go, but i wouldnt bother replacing that either, all mines does is make a noise, if i turn it right down temps actuall drop.


what are your temps anyways?

reason i ask is my quad doesnt brake 50c load with PRIME95 on all cores @ 3ghz

gpu doesnt go above 65c and thats without all those extra fans you got on there and all turned down to about 1100RPM(slipstream 1900)

so do you really need all those fans?

apart from that i love your setup!

Push-Pull lowered idle temps by about 5C for me, I guess since theres really nothing at all blocking the fans from blowing right through to the TRUE. I also love the blue in the front so for sure im keeping both there .

my temps at idle are 34 34 26 25
100% load are.........55 54 45 44

this is at 3.6ghz with 1.42 Vcore though. lets see if i can find records of me at 3.0ghz.

Got them (im so organised ) at 1.28 Vcore
Idle: 28 27 25 24
Load:48 47 43 42

Gpu is now at 48C, was 51C before that little 90mm fan.

Don't ask for rep, it's against the rules and people will hate you for asking for it.

was being sarcastic lol
will remove because you scared me
like me telling a joke about rabbit, and someone saying:

"they have microphones hidden in this room, and it just so happens that at the sound of the word rabbit, the demo charges will go off."

Have to disagree. For me the push/pull in the 3 bays made a huge difference in temps, on my system(nb) reading especially. And the fan at the bottom of the hdd cage blowing up along with exhaust on the left side of hdd cage brought my raptor from mid 40C to under 30C. I just took this screenshot

there ya go then, maybe its cause i used standard CM fans for those areas. makes no diffrence to me anyways as my temps are great with practically no sound, if it did get hot(not likely where i live) i can just turn the fans up since i have 2/3's of the speed still to play with

Nice set up! I have only 2 fans in my case (stock top fans). The only reason I have them is so that I can stick my T-line between them and it wont fall!
