Well, a week ago I posted about ordering up some fans, shrouds and a new front intake so I could try out a bunch of different combination's of things. For now, I settled on this:
Installed the Scythe Kama Bay Plus
(took up 3x 5.25" bays)
- mounted a 120x42mm Airbox
inside closest to the front
- followed by a GT 1850
- followed by another 120x42mm Airbox
- followed by another GT 1850
This created an air tunnel to pull/push cool air smack into the middle of my case.
I then setup my H50 radiator as push/pull exhaust using 2 different fans.
- GT 1850
- YL 1650
(Blue LED) [pull]
So far, I'm very pleased with the results. This system is super quiet and yields amazing results!
i7 920 @ 4.0GHz @ 1.192v
Load 60c-66c (Intel Burn Test v2.4 - Stress Level "High" - 20 passes)
(do these seem like decent temps to everyone? Is that considered a good stress test?)
I also have a TFC Xtender Shroud sitting here, that I want to incorporate somehow. I may pull out either the YL or GT from the radiator and just do a single fan w/ the 31mm TFC shroud and see how that does. I didn't want to place any fans on the outside of the case, but, I may end up doing that just to see what kind of temp drops I will see.
