Hey guys, back again. I once again can honestly say after a few weeks of solid use, the rear grate cutout didn't do much at all, and to be honest, neither did the SP120's. They were worth it because a buddy picked up my old fans for 15 bucks, so I figure 10 bucks for 2 SP120's, well that's just fine.

My next question, its been a LONG time since I have worried about temps and really gave them any mind. I got my i7 920 up at 3.82 GHz, at only 1.176 vcore which is pretty low. With my fans silent, I idle around 40-45, coolest and hottest cores, and with same fan settings I see high 50's low 60's in games (far cry 3 and planetside 2 are all I have been playing recently). Are these temps well within the range I should be looking for? Basically I can turn my fans up to max and save about 5C under game load, but is it really even necessary?

Low 60s is fine, especially for an intel chip smile.gif You have nothing to worry about

I know its fine, my Vcore is SOOO low for my overclock I know im not goign to have heat issues, i guess my real question is, is it "worth" the hassle of reaching down to my fan controller in order to cool it down a bit more while gaming? lol. Or are the temps perfectly fine?

Also, my gtx 470 peeks up to about 85C as opposed to like 78-80C when I turn my fans up. lol.

I know 4 series cards are built to cook, and really 85c for a 470 running 730 core 1170 mem at .950v isn't that bad either. I think these new fans and case mods really showed me what a quiet PC can sound like, and I just hate making it loud again, even for a few C cooler temps.

CPU temps are fine

GPU temps are a bit higher than I'd like to run 24/7, but they're perfectly safe. If you have an AIO cooler laying around, you could do the Green mod and completely drop the temps smile.gif

I don't game often, and when im not gamine the idle temp is about 45-50c, which these days is about 90% of my computers time, basically just idle. I don't fold anymore (will start again when I am out of college and don't need to worry as much about electrical bills and such wink.gif.

What is an AIO cooler, and what is the green mod?

I was thinking of reseating my 470 with AC5 (i think the previous owner, my friend, already did at once point, but not sure) and maybe pulling the stock heatsink shroud off and throwing a 80 mill fan on it right over the heatsink, although im worried as to what that would do to my CPU temp, it would sure throw A LOT of heat into my case.

Examples of an AIO (All-in-one cooler) include H60, Kuhler 620, Swiftech H20, etc. The Green Mod involves using these AIO ~$50 coolers to cool the GPUs. GPUs (even the 470) put out significantly less "heat" than CPUs, and an H60 manages to cool a GPU better than a CPU.

O yea I have heard/seen that done a few times. I just always figured GPU's dumped more heat than CPU's so it would kinda be pointless, guess this might change everything. Thanks for the info! might need to do this!

An H100 is about on-par with the top air coolers ... and the majority of GPU users use H60s / Kuhler 620's. It's weird, but eh. It works somehow tongue.gif

Im seriously about to buy a new water cooler for this setup. LOL. Question is, im thinking of using my h50 to cool my video card as it, well to be honest just isn't as important to me as my CPU (GPU is really built to get hot....). Im looking at either a h60 or maybe potentially a kuhler 620. Granted this is the corsair h-series thread, any idea which might cool my CPU a bit better, the h60 or the kuhler? Also, any idea if it would really be worth "splurging" on say a h70/80 for my current CPU? My next PC im planning to do true watercooling on everything, CPU,GPU, mobo... the whole 9 yards, so im not really worried about future proofing with this option.
