2 Questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
1 - I've got a slight issue. I installed 4 fans today in my rig. 3 case 120's and 1 120 on the TRUE. The 2 exhaust 120s are operating on manual, with knobs on the back of the case allowing for change in RPM. The front intake is on full speed (2800RPM) constant. I put the CPU one on full as well, but am wondering if it would be better to place the cpu thermal sensor that came with it on the CPU? It's quite loud on full and if it's not necessary, i'd be happy to lower it down a bit.

The problem is, if I do, I'm not sure where to attach the thermal sensor to the CPU. I'm running a Q6600 with a TRUE on an EVGA 780i. Not sure whether the sensor goes... under the cpu? between the cpu and heatsink (which would affect the arctic silver 5 on there...)? on the heatsink? Clueless.

2 - What RAM cooling/fans is/are on this particular rig? I really like the look of them (and the lighting) and want to know A- What it is, and B- If it's any good.

I have a temp sensor for my Kaze master mounted on my Heatsink. I just taped it to the base of the heatsink. It's not accurate at all and reads about half of what core temp reads under full load.

The answer to yur other question would be this

I'm not sure how it performs but it does look nice.

1. I have never heard of a sensor like that...just use coretemp lol.
2. You probably won't need ram cooling but any fan on it should do.

Of course the temperatures from the surface of your IHS aren't going to match up with the actual core of the processor. Why would you think they would? That's two completely different places the temperature is being read from. Check the surface temperature of the chip instead, that will likely be about on par with what the Kaze Master is reading (or it should be anyway).

I have a temperature panel built into my case... I just taped the end of the sensor to the ceiling of my case near my opti-drives.
