Ooook.. 2 painkillers later and a slightly dull ache and i'm back to post 3 pictures, and an explanation of how i've got everything setup
first of all, pics!
Here's how i started my H70 day.. (note my friend only loosely attached the GT's to the radiator, i have the fans on the right way around lol)
Here's two pics from slightly different angles, after i'd gotten it all setup and running! for show more than anything else
and here's what i did and so on...
The first thing i noticed was that i had to remove the 140mm stock fan, the H70 radiator is too tall by about a half centimetre, but i was able to get the 120mm fan i'd just removed from the back of the case to fit just fine up there. i have the H70 setup as exhaust, so rather than have the 120mm fan on the top fighting with the GT fan on the H70's setup for air, i made the top fan an intake instead, i reasoned with myself that the top fan would then be sending cool air from outside of the case straight to the GT on the radiator, making it even more ok for the H70 to be in exhaust config, i kept the front fan as intake also, so i've not had to screw around at all with airflow in the case, and i only had the top fan setup as exhaust for the arctic freezer so it would pull air out from it while its own fan pushed air in(a very loose push pull config in my eyes lol) i also had to move the cathode i had on the back end of my sidepanel, thanks to the chunky radiator lol, but i think its actually better in the place i have it now anyways
i've alrady posted some quick prime95 cpu load temperatures, as far as idle goes it refuses to go above 33*C, my northbridge is doing fine at 36*C, and the gpu temperatures are the same as they ever was!
that has to e the longest post i've ever written on this thread, i'm impressed with myself, thanks for reading and i look forward to seeing what you guys all think of how i've gone about my H70 setup today
