post #211 of 6325
xmisery, thanks for your OC info. It is a great help in getting me started to OC my system. I've been testing at 3.80 Ghz and so far so good.

Regarding your append #118 you mention you "and made a wind/air tunnel that pulls in cold air from the front and dumps it right into the middle of my case."

Could you tell us a little more on how you constructed the "tunnel" please? I added a single fan in the upper 5.25" bay of my HAF 922 but your idea sounds intriguing.

Hey BlueFox! Glad to help!

As for my little wind/air tunnel mod was something I constructed using the following:

(2) 120x120x25mm fans
(2) 120x120x42mm Airboxes/shrouds
(1) Scythe Kama Bay Plus

What I did was mount the KBP to the front of the case as it should be, then removed the included 12mm fan and put in the 42mm airbox, followed by the 25mm fan, followed by another 42mm airbox, followed by another 25mm fan. This takes up the entire length of the 5.25" bay, 3 rows high. I'll have to take some pics of this to probably better explain it and show you guys what it looks like. Just need to hunt down my camera.

EDIT: Okay, found my camera, and took some quick pictures. I posted this to the H50 Forum and my direct link for this is here.

I'd have to agree with kckyle as well. My best guess is that this is some sort of crosstalk due to bad shielding?

The Storm Sniper came with that huge bundle of wires that originates at the front panel with the fan/LED controller, as well as the normal compliment of eSata, USB, and Firewire. I remember reading a post on another forum where someone had a problem with the front audio connector on the Sniper. It crossed my mind when I popped the panels off and I thought "Geez, I hope there is not a problem in that spaghetti." Honestly, the wiring looked a little cheap compared to the wiring supplied from Asus and Corsair. I think I will try to isolate the board from the case electrically. If I disconnect the molex power to the fan/LED controller, along with anything else that supplies power/input to that front panel, I can just use the power button on the motherboard. I guess that will make the motherboard electrically independent of the case and I can zero in on the motherboard wiring, if the problem persists. Too bad I am at work, I can't try this until tomorrow.

Thanks for the links, 4.01 ghz running stable right now.

Well, I finally finished my build (for now) and am running a steady 4.01 GHz OC (thanks to Xmisery). It looks like the problem I had with my SLI setup dropping out had to do with the SLI connector that came with the motherboard. I used slots 2 and 3 instead of 1 and 2 and it may have solved my issue.

The only other thing I plan on doing in the next few days is adding another Crucial 64GB SSD so that I can experience the fasted RAID setup I have ever built.

One issue I have noticed is that before doing the whole Push-Pull thing with my H50, my CPU temp was 33C. Now that I added a fan and pointed the whole system to push air out of the case, my idle temps are up to 36C. My Antec 902 has great ventilation and I fixed my pump fan issue by connecting the pump power lead to the PWR header on my motherboard. You'd think that adding water cooling and adding an extra fan would reduce idle temps (not add 3C to them). Anyone else having that issue?

Anyway, here she is...

Nice rig! Yeah, hopefully that resolves the SLI issue you were having. It kind of makes sense, so hopefully that did it. Also having 2 SSD's in RAID0 should smoke, as if a single one doesn't smoke already!!

As for your fans, are they the exact same or is one a higher rpm/static pressure over the other? It shouldn't add 3c so that sounds odd. Maybe try flipping the fans in the other direction as intake instead and see what happens? Some cases play differently than others, so it might be worth trying out. Also, you might also want to ask this question in the Official H50 Forum. You'll get more eyes on this question and hopefully get it resolved quicker.

Fans are off (with the push one spinning faster) by about 200 RPM but I have to admit.... I am a dumb@ss. I forgot that I went from a HX650 to a HX1000 PSU since my last benchmark...I think that's where the 3Cs are coming from.

Time to play with VMs on this bad boy!
