[Official] Cooler Master ATCS 840 Owners Club - Page 99

post #981 of 4392
I've finished building the machine, and am just in the process of installing new drivers for the chipset, and I'll be updating the bios of the new motherboard as well at some point. Thankfully, I was able to boot into windows 7 without any issues, I've had to reinstall the operating system occasionally in the past when upgrading my machine.

I ended up having to remove the diagonal support bracket at the top of the removable motherboard tray for the Noctua NH-D14 to fit. To do so I simply drilled out the rivets that hold it in place. I have it in a horizontal orientation, which I felt would be ideal, as I have a Lian Li 5.25" fan bay installed at the front of the case to supply the CPU with cold air. In this orientation the fit was VERY tight, as the cpu heatsink is slightly pushing on the Vreg cooler on the board. The removable motherboard tray exhibits quite a bit more flex now than it did previously with all the brackets in place, but not enough so that it'll likely ever create any issues.

I replaced the stock northbridge fan with a Noiseblocker 40mm fan that I had intended to use on my Q6600 system, but never had the chance as the motherboard and/or cpu died on me during the installation. I've read complaints about the noise level of the stock northbridge fan, and the Noiseblocker fan I installed should be virtually silent in operation, while also moving more air than the stock fan would.

I'll try to get some pictures up once everything is up and running fully. I should have snapped some during installation to document the issues that the NH-D14 creates, but didn't think of doing so until now. I'll post up some system specs once I've had a chance to play around with the overlocking options a bit.

Quick question for you all.
Do you think I could get better temps by moving the PSU to the top of the case, removing one of the top 230mm exhaust fans, and adding an additional intake fan where the PSU normally mounts on the bottom? So there would be 3 intake fans (front 230, bottom 120 and bottom 120 where the PSU normally mounts) and 4 exaust fans (top 230, PSU fan, CPU exhaust fan)

I believe someone else has tried that already, but I don't remember if his temps were lowered. I'd wait until he sees this.

This problem should be less of an issue with some 1366 (by looking at my X58 Classified) as the CPU socket is more towards the center.
This is why I'm going to wait to make that edit. I'll hold off until ALL motherboards are listed that cause this issue.

Ugh.. I wish I had enough rep so I could sell things in the B/S/T area. Got a bunch of misc stuff kicking around I'd love to sell so I can finish off my rig.

Haha yep, that's the plan I need to post more (and in more than just this thread )

Unrelated note, but I have finished re-assembling my ATCS 840 with it's spankin' new black paint job. I think it came out great; now I just need to finish modding the motherboard tray and get that painted, and the case will be complete

Flash embeds aren't that efficient. Until Adobe streamlines the resources required for Flash Player, I tend to look down on browser embeds.
