post #4111 of 6378
Well, I had initially had them zip-tied to my intake fans but decided that it wouldn't be best to have hot air flowing over my GPUs. Right now my first GPU's Kuhler is attached to my exhaust fan but it gurgles a little due to the angle the tubes have to run at it to bend up to the exhaust. I was wondering if it might be better to put both radiators in my 5" bays, or to remove my 3.5" bays, put my disks in my 5" bays and put the radiators in the 3" bays in a (AP180) push - radiator - push (NF-F12) - radiator - pull (NF-S12). I could even put both of the radiators on the exhaust in a pull-pull - there'd only be ~24mm between my CPU heatsink and the first radiator but that'd probably only benefit the radiators.

Hello, maybe you can be interested in this review of the TJ11!

(PS: SilverStone is giving away this case!)

Quick question: Would the Club 3D Radeon HD 7950 RoyalKing work well in the FT02? I reckon that it will since it appears to have three/four heatpipes out of five that'll work alright. It has received a lot of praise from TTL so I reckon that it'll do well! What do you think?

it's not ideal, but it should work in the FT02.

essentially it has 3 heat pipes. 2 of which extends above AND below the heat source,(while mounted vertically) and the 3rd heat pipe only extends below the heat source and for a long distance too. it's definitely not ideal, but since the 2 heat pipes that goes above and below the heat source does not extend beyond 2 inches below the heat source, it should still work with the FT02.

ideally you want a cooler that has as many pipes that extend above the heat source as possible. when you have heatpipes that extend below the heat source, the liquid inside will have to fight against gravity to reach the heat source. it should work, but not as well as the coolers that have 5 individual heatpipes with 2 heatpipe only extending above the heat source and 2 pipes that extends below but with less then 2 inches of vertical travel. the 5th pipe would extend too far below the heat source to be of any use.

Well it is either this one or the reference 7970 so I think I'll go with this one despite its flaws ^.^

Edit: You don't know if the heatpipes on the RoyalKing is powdered or not, do you?

For what its worth, I use an ASUS GTX 560 DC I (I not II and not 560Ti) in my FT02.

It has two heat pipes, one going above the heat source, and the other going far below.
Idle temps actually seem a bit lower (by 3-4C, at 41C), can't really comment on load temps, but still below the 90C max I aimed for when overclocking it.
932Mhz OC on the core is still stable.

sorry not sure if any of the companies advertise whether their pipes are powdered or not. even top companies like noctua/thermalright/phantek do not advertise whether they use powdered pipes or not frown.gif very few review (if any) would go into that much detail about the coolers...
