post #2041 of 2409
Hey!

So Christmas is over and so i was finally able to do something on my rig.
I installed the H60 but unfortunately i suffered horrible temps.
I idled around 40 and had a max of 82 at Prime so i stopped it prematurely.
Started tinkering with it then controlled the bios hold my ear at the pump checked fans and cooling paste twice and and and....
At the end i had to admit that my H60 seems broken or not able to handle the heat.

So i left the cage where it was installed the Grand Kama Cross Rev. B again and set the Cpu fan at standart.
Idle is 29-33 now and max temp at prime is around 55 never hitting the 60 at more than one core for the glimpse of a second.

Cable Management took around 10 mins since i had to readjust 2 times from Scythe to corsair from corsair to scythe again argh ^^

Pictures of my adventure are beneath... enjoy...

Nice Rig ePoot!

Was looking out for that 92mm Asetek cooler for a whole year but unfortunately its hard to get it here in Germany.
And the shipping through their Ebay auctions would kill me so... ^^

Enjoy the red!

Just realized I never posted my build pics here. Note that the heavy flat power cables are really hard to work with/hide in this case, but I like the way they look. Makes getting the back on a real challenge, but it's doable. The other build note is the CM V6GT cooler does NOT fit without notching out a section of side panel. Hacksaw & pliers mod; measure twice, cut once, it works out. NZXT even sent an extra orange LED fan when I asked about buying one, no charge. thumb.gif

Since these were taken I've added a 3.5" USB 3 flash reader (card slots & port), rear exhaust fan and finished the cable management. It's been a rock solid build and LAN Party box. See my sigrig for the rest of the specs.

I'm new, but here is my build! Have had it since October 2011. I love it! Has had some mods done to it over it's life, I ended taking out the button for the orange LEDs in the front and on the fan. Doesn't look the prettiest, but I plan to build another one in the same case but go with a i7-3770k and a GTX 650Ti.

Asking for a friend: is it impossible to put the H100 in the roof of the Vulcan?

Yes. The problem is the vent/riser whatever you want to call it up there only takes 2x120mm fans. The fans basically sit right on the mobo so there is clearance issues.
Now the nice thing about doing it in front is that you can do push/pull. 2x120 fans can fit in the front of the case behind the front plastc face with just a few holes drilled.
The only possible way to get a 240 rad and any radiator for that matter up top would be going external.
This is why I am switching to the Prodigy. As much as I like the Vulcan and the way I have it now, I really want to get back into a custom loop and the Vulcan, while very capable got kind of old fast.
