{Finished} Modded TRUE + case = Temps like water *56K WARNING* - Page 8

post #71 of 107
The regular circular finger guard grills are the best; the ones with custom designs are just to restrictive. A good method of silencing fans is to use long metal screws and nuts, the point being that the fan will be fixed and pressed against the case, as opposed to regular screws that could cause the fan to move as it operates.

42c at 3.6Ghz... With a Arctic Freezer 7, I was getting 62x at 3.0Ghz...

WOW. I'm probably going to be getting a TRUE (with a fan, so it will be even better), and a RocketFish, so I'll probably be close to temps like these with my Q6700. 4Ghz seems obtainable.

Agreed. Some stupid custom ones have more metal than holes. Why not replace the fan with a picture of a gun, while you're at it?

Plus the generic ones are like 1-2$ Help you decide a bit, eh?

Any good fan grills you would recommend? I have the 1900RPM Scythe fans and they get a bit loud. I'm trying to find a way to kill the noise without undervolting any fans.

Quick question. Would sound dampening material work with a case such as the Centurion 5 which has a bezel mesh at the front of the case? (Cheap sound dampening material like the FrozenCPU sound dampening kit)
Q1: Read top

Q2: Yes, although it will restrict airflow a bit. If you don't have a fan in the front 5 1/4'' bays, then It won't make a big difference, but I suggest you get a low-r[m fan up there, and also put up some sound-dampening material on the rest of the case. That will make it more quiet AND more silent.

Well, I ordered the FrozenCPU sound dampening material to kill the noise.
I also got this fan grill which should be the kind you guys mentioned. Circular metal ones. I hope they work with rubber screws.

Well, with the grill bought and having some sound dampening material on the way. It's going to be a long weekend for me. I have a new fan for my TRUE (2k Ultra Kaze), TRUE washer mod, new PSU, cut out the current grill to make room for the new grill, sound dampen the comp, possibly Vdroop mod my board, and who knows what else.

I also picked up some CoolLaboratory Liquid Thermal. Hope that stuff works. I'll be spreading a light coat of it over the IHS of the Q6600 with a paint brush from Micheal's or something to use with my TRUE. It beats having a small blob in the middle and having it splash all over the place when I put the HS on it since it's thinner/more watery than thermal paste.
Both are lapped and have the copper showing. This means that it should be compatible with both Q6600 IHS and TRUE as long as I'm careful to avoid the TRUE's fins right (Due to it dissolving aluminum on contact)?

Quick couple of questions.

1) Should the new fan grill be attached from the outside of my case or inside the case?

2) Will the rubber screws fit with the grill?

I'm doing mod work similar to Adrianspawn's, but without the mofsets.

By the way Adrianspawn, I was asking if sound dampening material would work well in a case with bezel mesh because the tiny holes let sound out. I already have a fan in the lower 3 5.25" drive bays. It's too bad I can't replace the filters with the dampening material. If I did, it would kill a lot of the air flow since I'm guessing one side is completely solid due to the adhesive backing.

2) Will the rubber screws fit with the grill?

Q 0.1: No idea, you lost me. Any experts on that dissolving question?

Q 1 : Really depends on your esthetic choice, but generally on the outside is better, since, if you put it on the inside, it leaves small gaps that the fan will suck air from the inside of the case, instead of from the outside.

Q 2 : Yep

Link for thermal.

Go to the Features tab.

It's supposedly liquid metal and that aluminum is not resistant to what's in it and will start to dissolve if it comes in contact with the thermal. Since I lapped both the TRUE and the Q6600 and have the nickel sanded away, the nickel coating is gone and the copper is showing.

I ask this because it is a strange thermal product and I wanted to be sure that it's compatible with my TRUE and Q6600 IHS. I want to be sure that the IHS and TRUE's base doesn't use any aluminum.

Some of the things in this post are a bit stupid, sorry for that.

By the way, that is a funny as frick picture of your TRUE and your mods to it haha.

Thanks, lol.

Just read everything they had to say. I think it would have worked fine if you had the nickel plating on it, as it only warns against aluminium, and zinc is also fine. It is actually designed for copper, which is what the base (and possible even the heatpipes?) of the TRUE is made of, along with the Q6600 (and every new CPU).


The only thing is that it will solidify after 2 days. I don't know if this will effectively ''smelt'' them together, but it will definitally make it harder for reseats, as you will probably have to sand off the metal IF you can get them apart.

UPDATE: Cleaned up my horrible spelling, added a few things I don't even remember.

Thanks for the input.

I will be applying the thermal with a brush making it a liquid thin(?) coat so when it solidifies it will be quite thin (I think) and not be as thick as AS5.

I was going to get AC MX-2, but I saw that and said what the hell. I will be applying the liquid thermal with the CPU out of the mobo socket in case I spill any. After I'm done applying it, I'll then put the CPU into the mobo socket. That way I don't accidentally spill some of the thermal over the mobo causing it to short. I just hope seating the TRUE on top of the IHS make it splash the thermal all over the place.
