post #20421 of 28303
It is currently 31*C outside and a nice cold air conditioner inside and I received disappointment in my recent IBT testing. My motherboard is reading 33*C which is 2* cooler since changing my airflow. my video card is 50*C from 57*C before. Unfortunately I hit 63*C tonight on my cpu from 57*C max last night with my H80 as exhaust instead of intake. All are full IBT load results. 63*C is definately scary. I always thought my pc would automatically restart or shut down if it reached it recommended max but I see that isn't necesarily true. Back to the drawing board. Would I be wrong if I set my top two fans to intake to feed cool air to my H80 inside or is that wishful thinking and a waste of time?

Have you tried mounting the radiator in the 5.25 bays using the fans and zipties to hold it in? Trying intake at the back isn't all that when your GPU exhausts below it out the back. There are plenty of Hydro Series owners that did this with their systems to decent success. thumb.gif

Very interesting. I will look into that and see how difficult that might be. I have the one blu-ray drive so it may fit. I have tons of ties that came with the case. Now will I make the h80 intake if I put it up front in the 5.25 bays? I am assuming yes. That just makes sense. Not much exerience modding though so this will be a new challenge for me.

Eureka! I finally found some temps I can deal with. Though, I tried to fit the radiator in the 5.25 bay area but the radiator was to big in both directions. So instead, since I had the case open anyway, I turned the upper dual fans to intake. Now I have a large front intake in front of the hard drives a large side panel intake cooling the lower motherboard and video card, 2 top fans as intake for the upper motherboard and hopefully feeding the H80 which is right now my only exhaust. My motherboard went up 1*C to 34* from last night which I can deal with. My cpu went from 63*C load down to 52 to 53*C. It only went up to 55*C max at one time. So cpu wise I started with 57*C to 63*C last night and finally to 53*C this morning. Again I can only assume that the top fans are feeding the air from the air condition and ceiling fan into the case and feeding it to my H80 fans and radiator. I will be satisfied with this for a while. This will allow me to add this sig rig back into FAH CC duty and I might look at it again when it is finished. If there is anymore suggestions on how I can improve on this let me know. I know this is just a Phenom II 965 and I would prefer to be running a FX-8150 but this will have to do until I can maybe invest in a "piledriver" to cool with my H80 if it is compatible. We will see. Thanks for all your help guys.

Til they get the kinks worked out with 8150, I would stick with 965. Much better clock for clock performer. Now if you're going to be vidro rendering mostly 8150 would be an excellent CPU for that. smile.gif

Glad you got it worked out though. cheers.gif

I just started doing video rendering but am still learning. But more importantly, does it fold? And of course I have to ask if the H80 is compatible with it? I have a local store that dropped the price to $190. Does that make it any more worth it? It may take me a couple months to be able to afford something like that though. The prices could drop further or the "piledriver" could be coming out by then. I would love to give this H80 something worth cooling. Though if it all works out I could be using the H80 with my 965 in my other rig and my main sig rig could hold the 8150 or "piledriver" and invest in a H100 since I have a game plan to fit it my case. All this requires money. Time for a ramen noodle budget winksmiley.jpg

I actually do this with my Kuhler and probably will put the Kuhler at bottom and put my H60 in the drive bays instead. The radiator itself doesn't fit but what I did was zip tied the fan and shroud within the bays and the radiator sits behind the bays with an adhesive foam so it doesn't rattle against the cage. Like so:

450

If that still don't work but you got 3 empty drive bays... then add a fan in it if you want. Extra intake. There's never too much airflow. tongue.gif Though it would mean more dust, lol.

Nice concept and it might work but I probably couldn't fit push/pull setup of the h80. I would probably lose it's performance wouldn't I?
