My new Thermalright coolers came in yesterday!!!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Here's a few pictures of my setup. Tell me what you would change/improve. Besides better cable management, of course, lol. I'm kind of saving all that hard work for my permanent case. I really love the look of all those Thermalright heatsinks in there. I really want to get the Thermalright MOSFET coolers. I think the next thing I'll get is going to be the HR-05 SLI/IFX for my Southbridge. Once I got one in my hands, I was able to see that it would fit perfectly with just a little rotating. Unfortunately, due to the size constraints of my case, my TRUE is forced to rotate slightly. Also, my Northbridge mounts are kind of weird, so my HR-05 on there had to rotate a little as well. I can mess around with that later, though, and get it straight. And that HR-03 GT is one beefy VGA cooler, it took 10 degrees off my GPU temps! I used to be at 56 idle, now I'm at 46! I can't wait to see all this stuff in my murderMod!!! Tell me what you might do differently, though. I really want to get a new MB now. This little LT was great for a first build, but I'm not liking it the deeper I get into this stuff. I'm thinking the MSI P7N Diamond. What does everyone think of that board? Minus the stock heatsinks, of course.

i like the thermalright hr 03 but it bends my video card (its too heavy), just like in your photos. i am using a thin piece of plastic to hold it up to the gpu is straight and not curving

Oh it's gonna be even better once I add the other HR-05 and RAM and MOSFET coolers in there! Stay tuned for that!

And yes, unfortunately, my TRUE is twisted because my PSU is too close.

nice! im about to get the NB cooler myself i just got the same GPU and CPU coolers this week and i love them so far!

do you have your fan pointing towards the ram and the air pointing that way? because i currently have mine pointing towards the exhaust fan, im trying to decide which is better.

Thermalright-cooled! I like it

PS: With the HR-03(X), the video card may sag a little bit from the extra weight. My 8800GTX used to sag a little, but it didn't seem to be in any real trouble. I did correct the sag by using a small black twist tie though. I put it around the 6-pin power inputs, then tied it through a hole in the HDD cage. It holds up the end of the card a little.

Whichever way you have airflow, keep it in that direction. I have mine moving from from to back

Yep. I'd try to keep all airflow in one general direction (as much as possible). It's more efficient cooling with less circulation of warm, "used" air.
