What should I buy for air-cooling? (~50$)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
For air cooling of course. The last 200$ I blew was dissapointing because 50$ of it was unusable. (HR-05, Vantec stealth, Enzotech chipset cooler, etc)

Me thinking...

-Some special 3-and so inch HD cages, becase HD cooling in the Cosmos is not so good and I have 4 HDs.

-An ATX 24-pin mobo extension, because I want to flip the PS upside down while still hiding that cable. I already have 3, but they are ugly.

-Some 40mm fans to put in little places

-One or two more Ultra Kazes, because they are awesome lol


Anything else recommended?

Did you purchase the SLI or non-SLI version of the HR-05? I was under the impression that the HR-05 SLI and SLI/IFX fit just fine on 780is... the HR-05 and IFX should also fit on the 780i if the cooler doesn't block it...

Aside from what you've already listed and the stuff above, there's always the HR-09S series for the mosfet, HR-07 for RAM and the IFX-10 backside cooler (kind of useless)

Backside cooler I was thinking about, although I'm not sure about it's performance.

As for the Hr-05's, none of them fit on the NB, and its a one-piece chipset solution, so no mosfets either

IFX-14 fits in Cosmos 1000 with the 780-I all though you must put the fans on top inside and move them to the underside of plastic on outside of case. If you take 2 H/D holders out you can ty-rap a 120MM fan in place too. I also fastened 2 120MM fans to the H/D case one on side, one on top

I hate to imagine the noise a 40 mm fan that moves more than 10 cfm would be.

Get a Noctua NF-P12 and see how truly quiet it is for the CFM.

I don`t mind anything up to around 28 dba, and I need real POWA!

For the IFX-14, I would probably get worse temps than the TRUE, because it would completely mess up the way the airflow goes. It`s also like 80 bucks, for MAYBE 0.01C decrease.
