tbh, I can live w/ my temps, they are still far impressive than stock, load temps:
cpu: 60c
gpu (all three): 55c

all these running on one RX360. I thought about modding the top to put in a 480, but Im tired of hacking cases, the 800D is too nice to start hacking away. I'll stay where Im at, just need to upgrade my pump.
Well, I'm on the same boat (tired of hacking up cases) but I already have this RX240 and RX360...I'm dumping about 750-800w of heat into the loop (cpu/nb+sb/580/580) wonder if I should just mount the 240 externally out back...but it's going to take away from the clean look.

Ugh. Maybe I'll stick it down below as exhaust and flip the front most fan on the rad to an intake as well as the rear case fan. Or, I'll just cut out a side panel port for exhausting 240 heat.

Well you guys could install front air intake and side intake also add bottom intake and have the bottom rad mounted sideways (vertical position) exhausting air. I've seen this dne befre and it's a great idea.

arrrgh! brainmelt! lol.

I wonder if a 120x25mm fan would fit in front between the hdd bay and front panel with a filter slapped on to it. (tight area...might have to go 120x12mm)

Install sideways with a couple of radgrills over two cutouts on the right side panel...it's facing a wall so as far as looks go, it'll be invisible. OR, lay flat on its back as an exhaust and stick a 250cfm Delta on the back of the case as an intake and go deaf.

Hello Corsair Obsidian owners!
Im getting a new case in a few weeks, and the 700D is one of my options right now. I keep hearing about how the airflow is bad, but Im thinking, how bad is it really ? When I get this new case Im also gonna WC my CPU, so only my GPU will be air cooled, other than RAM and mobo ofc and other obvious parts, so I wanted to ask you guys how good a job a 700D will do keeping my GPU (and within a months 2 GPUs ) cool. I mean, it cant be worse than what I got now can it ? CM Elite 335 with one 120mm intake and exhaust fan, and even that keeps my GPU at good temps.
thank you

I keep seeing those concerns/comments for full air cooling, airflow is mediocre. for wc, as long as you have decent airflow going to the rad, you should be good. I have the rear fan and the bottom fans as intakes for my rad on top. temps are quite good for my entire build.
post #2127 of 8654
I was kinda thinking that temps would be better if I had the two fans on top of my rad, pulling air from outside the case and pushing it through the rad, and then use the rear as exhaust, and then bottom and "modded" front fans as intake. I suppose the way youre doing it is pushing air from inside the case onto your rad. Is my way not possible, or is it just a bad idea ?

Wermad, what are your temps for you 950 just stress testing? Or better yet your GPU's and CPU under full load? I'd like to get an idea of what to expect and what your ambients are.
post #2129 of 8654
cpu: 60c
gpu: 55c

(if I keep the heater down )
post #2130 of 8654
That's with them being under full stress? And the ambient temp?
