post #3581 of 28306
Add me to list. Just finished installing this little beauty, and I love it already. Temps are a few degrees lower across the board than with my old air heat piper, ~4-5 C lower cpu load temp, and cpu, system and gpu are ~3 C lower at idle, even my HDD and Vreg are cooler (well 1 C anomaly maybe ). My install looks much cleaner now, and that makes me smile too.

This self contained unit is perfect for me right now, because I deal with chillers and TECs (among other things) enough at my work to know the difficulties in dealing with advanced cooling measures. Don't want that head ache at home, too. I'll probably stick with this one until I get the itch for a true water setup in a few months.

Anyway, onto the pics:



Pretty lights, but need better fans later,

Unintentional hardware sync.

I've had this 900 for so long, and put so much work into it that I can't seem to move on. Maybe in year or so. Love that custom acrylic job you got, though.

I think the Xigi's do quite well on the rad. But I think they can be a little noisy. You might try installing a fan shroud and see if you get any improvement.

Trust me, I've already got a 38 mm shroud made up from a old burned fan, but the evga x58 board has a pretty tall Vreg heat sink in the way of the current H50's position.

I'll get there sooner or later, and move it to the front of the case and put the shroud in then. Gotta pace myself; that itch to tinker never goes away.

See thats the thing, I did just that and the end of the case is preventing me from putting a shroud + fan there. I have a 3000 RPM mounted on the outside of the case. I'll post pics in a few hours when i get my camera.

Long overdue, but, finally got a camera. lol I'm not the best photographer by any means and my case is a bit dirty at the moment, as I just installed my little air/wind tunnel mod inside the case to help pull in cold air from the front and dump it right into the middle of the case. For now, I've opted to keep my H50 mounted in the rear with push/pull fans as exhaust. I've considered moving the H50 inside my little wind/air tunnel contraption, but, maybe at a later date.

Pics below! Sorry if some were taken sideways and you have to turn your head. lol

For anyone interested. This little tunnel was assembled with the following parts..

(1) Scythe Kama Bay Plus
(1) Gentle Typhoon 1850
(1) Yate Loon 1650 (Blue Led's)
(2) Technofront 42mm Airboxes
