what's the vcore/temps on your 2600k OC?
yea swiftech mcr's, they the easiest to get round here , 2600k is clock at 4.6 Ghz with 1.35v atm still playing with the settings.

Not gonna run it too high since the 480's pumps out a lot of heat when its in action.....

This forum and this thread specifically is a bad influence on my wallet.

I revised my build. Nothing you all have not seen before, and *all of this is still a work in progress (since it's *all cooling just the little-ol CPU) but so what, right?

By the end, I ran out of bolts & whatever else I need but still managed to put it together. Not exactly the vision I had in mind when I got that quad rad but, it's mounted!, heh.

I took what I saw (and read) here and cut my tubing in 1/2 vs. what I had before... basically redid the entire thing from my initial post that didnt get any feedback so I figured it sucked pretty bad... need to redo

Does not compete with all those fancy 800D shots but... still all good fun for that which is affordable

View the album if you are interested in more detailed shots/the details.

moved it off the floor/it did not fit under the table anymore...
needed to go to the side, heh.




yes... i'm sucking air down, not up... intentionally. 120 mm fans push down then 2 140mm suck in that push and push further down to the internal radiator... and additional 2x120 sucking some more.




internal rad:




all plugged in... thought about mounting it on the top front of radiator but... thing gets warm... would look cooler but would heat up the rad


some more night shots





these burn holes in your wallet... and it's not that they are necessary, but they sure look kewl


View all if you are interested in more.


Thanks for viewing.

I see you have some Aerocool Shark led fans, how do you like them?

Bought 2 of the white ones to put on the rear hinged door as intakes and they look nice, have decent sleeving and some handy accessories but I don't like the sound they make. They are really loud turned up all the way and if I turn them down so they are quiet they don't move much air and the led's become quite dim.

I guess affordable is a relative term ... all my $$ blown on bitspower so that's why I have no more left for other more important things like gpu block and other kewl toys like a fan controller (because right now the thing sounds like it's going to take off).

Need to get some more $$.

Did you use the voltage reduction cables that come with those fans? They cut the noise quite a bit from 12v to 7v. Also dims the led's quite a lot although they are very bright to begin with.

I liked them enough to fill my project with all shark fans.

When you have only 2 or 3 of them, I don't think they are that loud. I don't use the 7v adapter to drop the RPM but I tried it out and they still did well... dropping to 900-ish RPM.

I'm running 2 of their 140mm fans and those have pretty bright LEDs in the corners and they really light up the entire fan... they are also quiet (by my standards... which is not saying much because I'm not too concerned with noise).

But when I purchased the 120mm LED versions, you are correct, the LEDs are not that bright (for some reason). I'm not a fan of cathodes & such so I try to light my case with LEDs from some functional component (like a fan).

They perform well enough for me and they were at a good price point. 5 of those in my case... the LEDs do a great job lighting the case just enough to see inside it with out lighting up the room.

But yeah, I do wish the LEDs were brighter on the 120s. Not enough to deter me from getting more because like you pointed out... they do come with some benefits like sleeved and a nice sleeved molex/3pin adapter instead of the garbage white molex you typically see packaged with fans. Those worked out really well in the black case.

20 years ago when I slept "with" my computer... I probably would be concerned more about the noise but once you get a wife & need to sleep with her... and the computer moves out (to another room)... it's not that large of an issue.

I tried out the 7v.. yes. It does work really well cutting the noise. It also adds a good bit to cable management which is a pain.

Eventually a bay controller is on my list but for now... I can deal with it. The nice thing is that they are all mounted well enough so that while the hum might sound amplified... it's not the type of loud like when you get a buzzing or a rattle because the fans aren't mounted well.

I have a ten y/o son and he's all about making noise. I cranked all the fans up wide open in my rig and asked my son if he thought it was loud. He said, "nope". Between the San Ace's and those loud azz Aerocool Sharks it sounds like a freakin jet engine. sheesh, I thought my stock 5970 fan was loud on 100%.

heh.. yeah kids definitely love noise. Maybe kids should be used to benchmark noise over fancy equipment. 1 fan performing over another by only a few decibels would no longer determine performance.

From what I hear a baby cries at around 85db... while we can tolerate only 80. Our 2 month old baby girl is definitely approaching that sound barrier. After a 5 minute crying fest, I can't hear my fans at all. No need for a fan controller!
