post #9171 of 23567
Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out whether or not my setup is the best for cooling my gppu and motherboard. This is my setup:

Front bottom 230mm intake fan stock with haf x case
Side 200mm intake mega flow fan with shroud I bought
Rear 140mm exhaust fan stock
Top 2 200mm exhaust black stock fans that came with the case, 1 at top and 1 in side panel which I replaced with the mega flow and moved the stock one to the top.
GPU Duct 120mm x38mm ultra kaze intake (inside the case)
GPU Bracket 80mm x15 optional fan intake
Corsair H50 push/pull with 120mm san aces with 38mm shroud as intake in the front 5.25 very top drive bays.

I have done several tests and the optional 80mm fan does not make a difference in temps on my gpu. However, in the random and rare event that causes my gpu fan to only run at 65% but being at a 100% load; the 80mm fan will keep the gpu 5C degrees cooler..... If the fan is at 100%, the 80mm fan makes no difference... Also I have the gpu duct positioned so that the top of the fan and duct is in line with the top of the gpu. I moved the duct up 1 notch thinking it would push more air over the top of the card and at-least bring the pcb temps down, but there was no difference in temps... This is on the evga gtx 470 super clocked.

I would like to create 5% positive pressure in my case to help reduce the dust build up and help cool my motherboard. I was thinking of either putting 1 80mm fan or 2 40mm fans in the bottom 2 front 5.25 drive bays. The best 80mm fan I found for this so far is this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-027-_-Product
I don't like the blue led and I don't need the fan controller since I plan on running it at 100%. But its 42 cfm with 29 dba which is really good..

If anyone has any suggestions on making my setup more efficient or can find a better 80mm fan or 2 40mm fans please let me know.

Hey Kyushu glad to see you finally got things ordered. Looks like a great system.
What kind of temp are getting now?
Are planning on OC'ing cpu?
Looks like you have plenty of fans.
Unfortunately I found my H50 was unable to keep my I7 cool (as I would like) when I shoved it around 4.0

The 470 just flat run hot mine fan would run around 65% @60c but when I added the second one bottom card jumped to 80% and top would run 100%. I just installed my EK waterblocks last night.

Of course that was in my sniper and have yet to use my 932 but it getting closer by the day.

That is sick... I love the digital camo with the front panel LCD. This thing looks like it should be strapped to a special ops officer's back. lol

Just cut the AC97 connector off from the HD connector. I do it with every PC I own and ive never had any issues with sound. Screw having the AC97 connector flopping around in there.

Hey fannblade glade to hear from you bro. I am running cpu overclocked at 3.8 with stock h50 as intake in the front 5.25 drive bays. temps go up to 73c under load and idle at 41c ambient temp is 70F.

470 is superclocked then overclocked further to 1037mv core clock 725 shader 1450 memory at 1801. Idles at 43c goes up to around 77c under load fan speed at 60% idle 100% when card hits 70c.

Need to know if I can improve my setup and how I can get the 5% positive pressure. I have a lot of fans, but only 2 are intake from the outside of the case to the inside and 3 are exhaust. Also h50 means hotter vreg and nb temps since there is no air around the cpu from a cpu cooler.

Question for you guys.

I got some rediculous deals on some really nice parts and I'm basically swapping my entire system, selling everything and buying a whole new WC setup.

Right now, I have this:



I'm upgrading to an I7 950 and 2x 480's or 470's (haven't decided yet)

Anyway, my problem is WC'ing.

Realistically, I only need 3 hd bays so, I guess I could dremel out the bottom and use that space to mount a rad BUT, I was hoping to either use 1 360 rad or fit 2 240's in the top.

I'm not looking for BEST temps, I'm ljust ooking for good temps.

At this point, I was looking at cutting off the top PSU mount and putting it there, 1 vertially and then 1 horizontally...

My thoughts are 2 XSPC 240's with 1400rpm fans pusing out of the case...

Do you guys think that'd work? Am I best putting it on the bottom?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

i dont think your going to get a 360 in there at the bottom...1 240 sounds good at the bottom and one at the top

Hrm, well that's possible but, then I screw my intake, even with something big in the front.

Do you guys think it's possible to cut out the top PSU tray mount and fit a 240 in there? While keeping the other 240 1 "slot" over?

Could a 120 handle it?, Maybe do a 120 and keep a 360 up top?
