My Upcoming P180 Fan Config ~ $200 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well I got all my new cooling parts and set everything up.

After idling at 45,46,42,42 I now idle at 37,39,35,34 (Q6600 B3 at stock). Am I wrong to have expected a bit more or are these good results? I used Shin Etsu so does that have a curing time?

These Noctua's are absolutely silent however I completely forgot about my PSU fan! My computer is definitely quieter but this PSU fan is ruining the point of my purchasing silent fans! Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

Anyways, here are some pics .

The Parts


My Lapped True (CrazyPC)


With everything installed


My TRUE and adjacent fans

Nice setup, love the paintjob. My cable management isn't actually as bad as it seems. Most of the wires you see where the upper HD cage used to be are actually pushed against the back of the case, I just don't have the cage there to hide them .

And I'm hoping that when my TIM cures that the temps will drop a couple more degrees so I can start OCing.

For the power supply, if you're willing to void your warranty, you might be able to open it up and change the fan to a 120mm unit of your choosing. It may or may not require splicing, it depends on the model - hell, you might not be able to install a new fan at all. I'm unsure of what type of fan the GameXStream uses, I never really familiarized myself with them.

if u want even more room in the bottom chamber take that midsection bracket and u'll have room.56 cfm 92x25mm fan:
