Axxess, my apologizes. Here is the correct link to the "rev 2" board: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...3097#anchor_os.

Hope that helps

Ok, so i am going to order the sunbeam core-contact freezer due to its low price and great reviews.

but i have one question Regarding fan orientation on my antec 300.
My top 140mm fan is set on medium, the reaer 120 is on high, both blowing out(both antec 3 speed).

i have 2 120mm intake fans on the front.

I am also going to order one more 120mm fan (i want a cold case!)
for the side, should it be intake? and which way should the core-contact be facing? fan toward the back or front of the case?(if there even is an option)

sorry this post wasnt very 550BE related, but in the long run these upgrades will get me to 4GHZ (yeah im dreaming)

Welp, the Shuttle pooped the bed. Had 2 surface mount caps take a permanent vacation when my hand brushed (literally) over them.

Splurged on a Crosshair III, 4gb kingston HyperX and an Antec 900. Results tomorrow, pics if I'm not too lazy before class.

Alright, I must warn you about the sunbeam being slightly difficult to mount. I will help you once you get it.

Your top fans should blow out for sure. Your front fans should blow in. Your back fan/fans should blow out. Your sides most likely will blow in.

Your heatsink fan should face the fans that blow out. This can be either the top fan or the back fan. The sunbeam's airflow is going to want to go to the back fan though, since that is how it is mounted. I hope I answered your questions!

Good luck!

Nice choice in parts! Should be promising!

i was going to get the smaller sunbeam CCF (92mmfan i think) so i have room in my case (mATX mobo)

you said its difficult to mount, is there another one that you would recommend? or is it worth the tough install? (for the price it seems great)

I say that the 120mm version is definately better than the 92mm. The mounting is just annoying. It doesn't really take off from the cooling.

First, make sure your motherboard is out of your case when you do this.

What you have to do is instead of pushing on the side things to hook the bracket on the motherboard like you would think you would have to do, you press down on the bracket and use a free finger to move the side thing to fully hook it on. It takes patience, definitely.

that delta should atleast keep the load temps to a much lower level.
the pressure and cfm both are outstanding.
i have 3 deltas.. one is lying around as i have not finished with a fan controller yet...can't think of using it without controller..unless i'm benching

if you can afford, get Cogage.. it can allow push pull and costs only a lil more than sccf. (after considering cost of a fan)
the build quality of sccf is not so great, nontheless, good enough for the package it contains.

avoid 92mm one if you can afford 120mm one.

as for the installation process, i practice a method which makes it simpler for me.


Follow instructions from left to right.

also to remove a CCF, push down on the springy bracket rather than the tab. Makes it hell of a lot easier.

and ditto, install it outside of the case unless you have a lot of room above your CPU socket.
