post #3021 of 28251
Got my computer back together... I wasnt expecting the Scythe Kaze to be that loud. LOL
I am a little dissapointed that my idle temperatures havent dropped still running at 35C idle. I havent tried a full load test yet. Ill see in a couple of days if the temps drop after the TIM breaks in some.

For some reason I cant lower the rpm of the Scythe.. I tried using speedfan and the asus pc probe II..

But the mod is complete

Im going to try another shroud, as you suggested - there is nothing to loose and if works - great!

Im also going to get some gaskets to mount between the fans and shroud(s). Id like to see if this makes any difference to the static pressure.

Ill be using these:

Been there, done that. Thanks for playing.

You linked to a 140mm version. You need 120mm. Easy mistake to make. If you wanna try before you buy just tape the joint and see. I didn't notice any difference by making it 100% air tight.
Shhh

Yeah,.. me bad. Wrong link. I understand I need the 120mm

Since I use 2 x screws in the diagonal to hold the fans / shrouds in place, it tends to make a gap anyway. Call me pedantic but i like my stuff to look good. Im all for ghetto but if there is a piece of gear available, Ill go the gear over ghetto

Been lurkin for a while, have my H50 on for its third day of duty and been playin with it. So I was thinking, that pump right on the WB has got to be generating some unwanted CPU heat, and I already have a Spotcool installed for my X58 sink (med speed, high is a bit noisy) that is also pushing some air on the pump. The pump is warm to the touch under norm operating conditions (before spotcool).

So long story short, unplug the spot and CPU jumps 4-5C in under 2 minutes! Plug it back in, temps drop back down after a few. Got me thinkin, has anyone ever run the pump coverless? I mean, sure we can play with fans (workin on it) and we can mod the lines and res (waitin for UPS) to drop a few C, how about bringin the pump temp down running topless or direct airflow or sumthin?

Check my PM to you.

Nice work and welcome to the forum and our thread. Nice Gigabyte goodness there

If your thinking what I think, your thinking, the cover keeps the water in... so, no, I dont think thats feasible.

However, I appreciate your feedback on the spot cooler on the pump... There was a vigorous discussion a lil while back as to whether this would work. I dont believe anyone tried it... until now. Nice work!.

Hey Killouse... remember this discussion?
