Thermalright'd: Blinged out 790i

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Hopefully doing a new build in the next month or two, and I'm planning on:

790i/X48
Tri 9900GTX/Xfire 4870X2's
4GB DDR3

I'm thinking of using TR heatsinks on all components:

T.R.U.E on CPU
HR-05's on NB and SB
HR-09's on MOSFETS
HR-07's on RAM Modules
HR-03's on GPU's (if compatable)

I'm hopefully not gonna hear the words overkill in this thread, it is overclock.net IMO, extreme air cooling looks better, and can be as effective as watercooling...one thing I'm worried about though is weight on the mobo...

What you guys think??

Weight won't be a problem.

In fact Thermalright are releasing a board that comes with all of the things listed as a package. I will try and find the thread for you! May be worth waiting for that as the package deal might be cheaper Not sure what chipset the board was though.

But yes that will look awesome, and weight won't be a problem. Only thing i would ee worried about is how to get the heat out of the case effectively with that metal everwhere

EDIT: Here

X48 chipset, looks like you would have to go Xfire with that package.

Yes, it can. Chances are it won't quite be (at least not compared to high-end watercooling), but saying it can't is illogical.

The thing is, I've seen a lot of Thermalright products used by members of this forum, and they can be about as effective as a low-end watercooling setup.

SerenityKill3r: Looking forward to seeing pics of your TR cooled rig. They look sweet; all decked out and uniform in shiny aluminum. I also want to see your temps reported!

Yep, I've heard Yate Loon's move a ton of air at a relatively "reasonable" noise level.

These Yate Loon High Speed 120mm fans are rated at 40dBa and 88CFM, and go for only $3.99 a piece at Xoxide.com.

Yeah, I was looking at those, would like to stick around the 30-40dBa range...

What temps are you getting with your TRUE? what fans you using/configuration?
