What did you use for the test?? What about file transfer rates & real world data rates, like 1mb 8mb, like that? Also, why is it all uncached? What about Cached data? Are you going to do it in a month, then two, then three to see if there's degredation?
Don't writes always improve in Raid 0 because the work is traded off like with multi-cpu or gpu setups?
What puzzles me most is my sequentials were: 349.75 Read, 168.68 Write.
Yet your 4k & 4-64k's were wicked fast!
: Hi Kev!!!
Can't wait to see what you make of that setup!
: Thanks for doing the testing! I still can't see the megahelam <sp > side of things, just the weight difference is enough for me to stay with an H50. Oh, Marsha did Mindy's hair, have to take a pic to post! I know you liked the color streaks before, you gotta see it now!!
Ok on those computer decals. What am I not seeing & why? The all look like a white logo on a grey backround or the other way 'round to me??
On the fan issue, negative pressure and all that stuff: Ok, those who were here may remember. I had my Haf set-up with 4 120mm Zalman fans on the side & the two on the top that pull air through the rad, into the case. The fan on the back hole was weak & the one in front was the stock Cooler Master 230x 200, esssentially a 200mm fan.
The pressure issue: It was positive for sure, the Haf has these little louvers on the side panel at the front, pointing down. There was always air blowing out of there, the vent holes in the optical drives, the holes around the card reader & the one bay that only has a screen covering it. The back fan seemed pretty nulled out, put a tissue behind it, nothing, you have to take the cover off in to do the front test, voiding everything.
The noise issue: This is why I changed, the noise of 6 - 120mm Zalmans was in the range of hearing that I have a problem with & it didn't take long to get on my nerves!
< yeah, like him, I didn't want to compute, for the first time since 1984!!
So, I also didn't like the idea that my entire case was blue themed. Blue 12" CCFL's, Blue tubing, Blue LED's, Blue paint on the front grills. BLUE, ok? One problem. The Haf 932 comes with a Red LED fan in front & this was one time that the Blue & Red didn't make Purple!
Not long & I ordered the 2 - 200mm Blue LED fans, 2 GT 1850's for the rad, Blue LED's to put behind the res. The only thing in there that isn't blue is the LED's that light up the pump, they're white, it looks good that way.
So, being the avid, er... Rabid, tester that I am. I took copious amounts of notes on how everything was running and all the temps with all the programs that I could find (free ones anyway).
New stuff came in, the 4-120's on the side became the 200mm 750rpm Blue one that's there now, the front also was replaced with one of those. Cooler Master sells a Haf 932 like this now, it's called the Blue Haf 932!
Sheesh! How long did that take?? Also, did the replacing of the back fan with the stronger quieter Noctua.
Interesting enough. With one motor running instead of 4, the noise went wayyyyyyyy down. Checked the temps. The Cpu went from running around 34c at idle to what it is now, 26-28c, the gpu (the one Rockr has also dropped around 6c. I see it like this, first, 1 motor runs cooler than 4, then, the air is no longer being forced through the grills, it's pulled by the front & side fans which is the main draw, but there's the air that's brought along for the ride that comes through the now open grills. I have the side panel off that's on the side without the fan right now. Temps increase about 4c when I do this, put it back & they drop, messes up the air flow I guess.
