Oh dear!

I have been running this case for a month or so now, but I have harun into a few issues!

With my CM Stacker case, I was able to run Prime95 / video editing on my 4Ghx I7 920 forever.

Now, when I convert video, play Modern Warefare 2 or Prime 95, my CPU temps creep to 92c!!

Then I get the blue sreen!!

I have tried resetting my Noctua air cooler and changing to pointing back, or top, but no difference!

I have all fans blowing at full speed, but still the blue screen.


Anyway, I am new to watercooling and I need help. Please give me your thoughts on the below points:

1: Should I go for the Corsair H50 to help with temps? (As air flow & 800D do not mix)

2: Zalman RESERATOR-XT-BLACK a good option?

3: If you say I need 'proper water', can you make it easy for me and tell me what I need to get going?

Keep in mind my 3 x GTX 260's run fine, I just need to keep my i7 920 DO under control.


Many thanks

Val

did you add 120 mm fans up top? if not I suggest you do, put 3x 120 mm fans and use tham as exhaust. Flip over your rear exhaust and make it as an intake.

hi, I'm new overclock.net and I building my new, and first, rig with this case (also including classified and i7 920 DO). I hope to get the parts in the next few days (3-4).

Its going to be air cooled (thermalright ifx-14 BP/w 3x 140mm fans, pci coolers, etc) for the next month or so, until I scavenge up the money for the a triple and 2x rad. Plz look forward to it .

Ok, so I am in the middle of my build. Here's the setup:

Case: Obsidian 800D
CPU: i7 920
PSU: Corsair 1000HX
MB: x58 Classified
GPU: Asus 5870
HD: 1 TB WD, adding SSDs later
RAM: 6 GB Corsair Dominator
CPU Cooling: Corsair H50

I have run into a little problem though...

I have 2 fans right now, rear (changed to intake) and bottom fans, that have the 3 pin connectors for power. However I am already using the 2 available 3 pin connectors on the motherboard for HDD and Corsair H50 fans.

How can I power these other two fans? Thanks for help.

This. It makes a 20 degree difference in internal case temps for me.

Yeah Phaseshift, I have 3 x Enermax Clusters 120mm sucking air out. I did try having the rear as intake blowing air onto the Noctua, but it made no real difference. (i7 920 DO @4ghz btw)

I also have the additional 120mm fan fitted to the additional fan bay below with the cover removed to give the lower 140mm a bit more air to pull in.

I wonder if I should replace the 140mm fans with the 120mm clusters? Combined with the H50 surley temps should drop?

PS: I seen a 120mm fan that can fit on the front as an intake (Takes up 2 x bays), are these any good?

Will the fan splitters be safe for a mb with 150 cfm+ deltas?
