Here are a few pics of the 650D vs the 800D

Seriously if I knew my e760 could fit in it I probably would switch to a 650D
Overall the drive bays are a lot better than the 800D's. Basically the 650D has pretty much true hot swap drive bays, if they created a standard back to the 650D and used the same trays then they would be perfect. Also having that drive bay at the top is awesome. The only downside I think there is to the system is trying to take off the front of the case.. It's horrid.

Hey everyone,

Happy to now be part of this fine club... smile.gif

I just got myself a sexy Obsidian 800d case and packed it with some goodies. My basic setup is the following:

Corsair 800d
Asus P8P67 Pro
I7 2600K
Corsair H70 CPU cooler
GTX 570
8 GB Corsair Vengeance 1886MHz
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB
Seagate 1TB 6GB/S
Corsair ATX 850W Pro Gold

I have a few little questions about this setup. I have been OCing my CPU at everything between 3900MHz, to stable 4500MHz and up to 4800MHz. At 3900MHZ, iddle temp is around 30ish (bellow 35) and around 60is at load (62-64C). OCing to 4500MHz I see the temps going up a bit (not relevant for iddle, as I don't change volts. I am using 1.3V for both), and the temps go up to 70ish (70-74C). At 4800MHz, the temps shoot past 80C.

Can anyone with a similar build to mine (or anyone at all that has the knowledge) advise me on my temps?
I have been looking at replacing the stock fans in the H70 as they are a bit too loud for my taste... I got a couple of Akasa Apache Blacks, which I hope will do the trick. Does anyone else have any other suggestions regarding fans in the 800D? Is it worth changing intake fans (bottom and HDD bay)? Should I stick some 120mm fans in the top?
Also... Did anyone, not using the top grill, cover it with some nice filter? If so... could you please advise me on this?

And I think this is it for now...
I love this case! It's brutal...

Cheers all,
M.

Alright, Not my exact setup but very, very close. I have the 800D, 2600k and I am using an H50. There is definitely something wrong here, things are way too warm. I will start with some reference, My 2600k is @4.9 GHZ and very rarely goes above 70 c under load. I hover around 28 idle.

I have the H50 setup as push/pull with non-stock fans (highly recommend Scythe, they have insane CFM numbers). The H50 is push/pulling air INTO the case. In my opinion, this is going to cool the CPU the best. This way you are cooling the radiator with outside air, not warm case air. Now, you will want to get rid of all that air you are pumping in by setting up some exhaust. Right now I have my H50 mounted on the top, far back grill. Then I utilize the rear fan as exhaust along with the top front grill (another Scythe mounted here). I keep the fan that is inside the middle of the case as is. It helps exhaust.

Also, Have you tried re-seating the H70? Once when I was having issues I was able to drop 10c simply by thoroughly cleaning the CPU and heatsink (Completely removing ALL thermal paste) and re-applying some arctic paste.

I have to run, but when i get home i will post photos of my setup long with screenshots of my CPU and ambient case temps for you. Hopefully that will help and we can get these temps down for you.

Hey there,
Thank you so much for the prompt reply!

In fact, I am not very experienced setting up systems, and I just bought this full system from OCUK. But... I am a fast learner! smile.gif

My H70 in in a push/pull setup, exhausting from the back. I have ordered some Akasa Apache for the H70, mostly to reduce the noise made by the system. This is a big concearn, as the computer is in the living room and my girlfriend is very sensitive to noise (specially, coming out from my computer... smile.gif). If I could improve on the fans that the case has (withouth adding more noise to it), that would be the perfect situation...

But mostly, I just want to know if this are safe temperatures or not. If not, I will come back to the vendor of my system and discuss with them the temperatures I am having. Right now, running Primer5 Blend test for 20 minutes and the temps I get on the cores (@3900MHz) are 61,64,63,65.

I will try to run some stress test @4500MHz and post the results.
Could you please let me know the OC configuration in Bios for the 4900MHz?

edit: In addition, my GTX 570 reaches 85ºC under full load (either Furmark or playing graphic intensive games) and normally iddles around 40ºC. Does anyone have any experience with this GPU on the 800D?

GPU cooling in the 800D seems a bit difficult with air. I have a friend with a 570 in his 800D and says it would get toasty in gaming and benches. There simply isn't much airflow in that chamber. I'd recommend setting up some fan profiles with MSI afterburner to keep the temps under control during certain games etc.

As for your CPU temps - same issue really. Not a whole lot of airflow in that chamber, plus your GPU hot air is lingering around as well. If you experience uncomfortable temps in prime/gaming, then try the intake method instead of push/pull exhaust. When I was contemplating the 800D or 650D, my first thought on the 800D was to try intake, with 3 120mm's sucking it out the top. The new fans you ordered will help move more air.

Overall you don't usually want to see 80C in prime, but realistically, if your intense gaming temps don't get too high I wouldn't worry too much. 4.5GHz is still pretty beast if you can keep those temps controllable
post #3266 of 8657
Yeah, that is the impression I get... The 800D doesn't do great with air. That is why I would like to know of tips on getting a bit more air circulating (again, keeping in mind I have to keep the noise under control).

Under extreme gaming, I get to 85ºC on the GPU and around 50ish (55+) on the CPU. Is this acceptable? I don't really care about subzero temperatures, I just want to make sure that my temps will not bring me any problem in the long run (or, more importantly, that I don't have any defective component).

Edit: Not only this is a great club, I really am positively impressed with how helpful people are! Many thanks guys...
post #3267 of 8657
Just another quick update on the temps I am getting on my 800D build (I hope this is the right place to put this...).

So, @ 3900MHz 1 hour Blend Test in Prime95:
cpu3900mhzprime95load1h.png


OCed @4500MHz 1 hour Blend Test in Prime95:
cpu4500mhzprime95load1h.png

Are these temps acceptable for my particular build? Will my CPU survive OCed like this?

Cheers again for all your help!
And I am not sure if I mentioned it before... but this case is ACE! smile.gif

Yes, those temps are fine under load. It is my opinion that anything 70 c or below is acceptable and safe under load. Anything above that and you start to degrade the processor more quickly than you would probably like. If your temps get higher than you would like, just back off your OC. You have an i7 2600k which is incredibly powerful as it is. What are you doing with your computer that requires you to get a higher over clock?

Also, one hour is no where near long enough to test the stability of an over clocked processor.

Just for vanity!!!! biggrin.gif Just because I can... biggrin.gif

No, seriously... I am giving it a good rub and burn in tests, to make sure that the system will endure the future! And, as I mentioned, I want to make sure that my components and my build are working as expected. I will, very likely, go back to the original clocks that my computer was shipped with (3900MHz). As you say, this is more than enough for most of my processing needs.

In any case, the main reason I was asking people with a setup similar to mine for their temps, is to know how far off I am in terms of stock and under load temperatures (and ultimately, to be able to improve my system thermals a bit).

Cheers for your wise words!!!
