post #4841 of 28252
I've been very late in posting some pics but here they finally are. To summarize:
I used two broken fans for the shrouds (cut out the fans). Going from front to back I have fan-shroud-rad-shroud-fan. The shrouds are held onto the rad via the normal screws and the fans are held to the shrouds with duct tape. I know that seems to be a bit of a ghetto mod but it actually works very well. I have duct tape around the whole thing and it seals the tunnel nicely. Holding the whole thing up, centered and to the back of the open 5 1/2 inch bays, I first drilled two small holes through the openings at the back of the drive bays and into each shroud. I then used brass wood screws to screw through the side openings and into the shrouds. Note that I only used two screws per shroud and only on the back side. The whole thing is on there very securely. The front fan is about 1 to 1.5 inches from the front grill. I can feel it sucking air in from the front grill so all is well.

I installed a Ultra Kaze 3k on my H50 last night and it dropped load temps by 8c!!!! I couldn't believe it! It is pretty loud at full speed so I changed some settings in speed fan and running at 50% until my chip hits 42C it cools runs quieter than the Corsair fan at full speed. I have it set up where once it hits 42C the fan goes to 75% and above 60C it runs at 100%. I love how it sounds with these settings it almost reminds me of a jet revving up as it takes off, but yet still runs very quiet 90% of the time. The only time it ever hits 100% is when I run Intel Burn Test. I think EVERYONE should consider this upgrade!

I.e. I currently have the CPU at 3501.2MHz, and my G.Skill DRAM frequency is 389.0MHz. I dunno...I'm confused.

I have the DRAM fsb set to Auto, and it has it at a 1:1 ratio.


My G.Skill sticks are:
(Here's a picture instead):





***By the way, the problem still persists...


**Update:
Do you guys think it can possibly be my new psu? I've been doing a little research on the Coolmax psu's and I see a huge mixture of reviews.
Should I downgrade back to my Enermax 500w?
Bro I would RMA the PSU or something. You have another PSU to try and make sure it was that?

Just use two of the four on one side, and the other two on the other in criss cross pattern. You can go to home depot and by some 6/32 threaded screws if you want to use four on each side.

I think short Linx runs are more than enough. You might want to run it for about twice as that. 2hours or so.

THe temps are a bit over my safe max which is 80ºc. what fan configuratino you using?
