My Computer desk/Office

















































































Anyway, thats my new rig, Let me know what you guys think.

Cheers!

Nice setup dude! Bet its much faster than your old rig!

Few suggestions for you to consider:

1) Over clock that 4770k higher than 3.9ghz! You could get 4.5ghz out of that badboy i'm sure!

2) Whats your reasoning for the top fans being set as intake rather than exhaust? I always get better temps with them as exhaust but i have heard mixed opinions

3) How are you finding your Corsair mouse / keyboard? I had the K90 for a very short time but quite a few LED's died (yours only looks half lit too...is that a mode it has?) and i also had the mouse mouse in black and the software made it unusable!

What if I put another 200mm Bitfenix on top instead of two 120mm ones? Will that be worse than two 120mm?
Also, does it make a difference if I use SP120 instead of AF120 in the back?

I'm determined not to use the side mesh panel as long as I can afford not to. It will ruin my view of the Titan, plus it will make it easier for dust to get inside the case. Can I still get a well-ventilated case without using the mesh panel?

Thanks a lot! smile.gif

I can't recommend The Bitfenix Spectre Pro, because like you i wanted a white LED fan so i got some and they were super noisy, i hated them. They made a horrible grinding noise and also the white wasn't really white, it had a yellow tint. Lots of people having the noise problem with those fans, some put up with it, others like me do not.

They only make CM MegaFlows in Blue or Red which is a shame BUT you could always buy one and cut the LED's, and solder on some white ones, that's what i was going to do. It looked quite easy. In the end i went back to blue lighting anyway so blue worked out just fine.

For the top, again can't recommend that fan. Also i believe some fans won't fit up top as the motherboard is in the way.

The SP120 is used for static pressure which is for radiators and spot cooling. Because the rear mount is for exhausting hot air from your case, you will want to go with the AF120 as it will do a better job. I had a SP120 in there for awhile but soon swapped it out for a AF120.

I didn't want to use the side mesh either as i liked looking in and seeing all my expensive hardware. I decided to make a custom side panel with a CAD machine at work which had a 120mm fan hole cut out to spot cool my graphics cards with a gentle typhoon AP-15 which does the job brilliantly. You can get an OK ventilated case without it, but the 600T is not the best aircooled case in the world. By adding the side fan, my GPU temps dropped by about 10c but it does get dusty which i don't like. When my graphics cards go into my water loop, i will be looking to remove it to reduce the dust coming into my case.

Here's what i did, hope this all helps, good luck!

Thanks for the quick reply! smile.gif

Another solution could be to use only one 200mm Megaflow in the front (with lights cut off), two AF120s on top and one AF120 on the backside. Then I could use a LED lighting kit (which one do you recommend btw?) to light up the case. Does that sound feasible to you?

Also, do you recommend intake or exhaust for the fans on top?

10c is a lot and would help a lot too. But the dust is what I fear. I'm not using the mesh panel yet and already the case is full of dust. This is why I don't think that I'll be modding the window.

Speaking of the window, I saw someone using a fully transparent side cover for their 600T. Is that readily available for purchase or was that a custom one?

Thanks a lot! smile.gif

Welcome to the club thumb.gif

Thanks guys! Shes taken a while to save up enough cash to splash out on some more upmarket hardware lol.

 

I'm planning on trying to push the 4770K to hopefully somewhere around 4.5 or 4.6ghz, The only reason shes running 3.9ghz is because I was just messing around with the M6E BIOS and holy s*** there are some tweak features! So I played with a few settings and haven't been back to it with work being so busy atm. But ill let you all know how I go!

 

I've got my top fans as intake because my house has ducted air con, so drawing the cool air straight from the top and pushing it down, I noticed a 3 deg C drop in idle temps from having them exhaust. Speaking of temps, I haven't pushed my 4770K yet but I have got much better temps than with my i7 960, idle temps with both my H50 and H80i were around 42 - 45 deg C with a maximum load under Prime 95 @ 88 - 92 @4ghz 1.34v. It was insanely hot, even after re-seating many times, different thermal compounds etc. So far at 3.9ghz I've got idle temps with the H80i @ 25 deg C and Prime 95 temps @ 56 - 66 deg C. I'm finding Haswell a LOT cooler so far than most and a lot cooler than the 960.

 

So far so good with my K70, its got individual key lighting so I've only got the main keys I use illuminated. The keys are a lot higher than my old keyboard so thats taken some getting used to. My M65 Mouse has been awesome, smooth scrolling and movement, it fits nicely into my big hands and is weighted just perfect. I downloaded the software and done the firmware update and so far fingers crossed its been smooth sailing.

That's fair enough dude, each to their own thumb.gif

$1600...OUCH! Huge investment over £1000 for a couple of graphics cards, any idea when the 800 series is coming out? lol

All the best for your surgery!

That'd be the setup I'd personally go for.

I personally like the Bitfenix Alchemy Strips (one of the few Bitfenix products I actually trust and like), they are a bit expensive but way better than the NZXT LED's and are more readily available than some of the other adhesive LED strips.

Depends on the setup overall, I'd say, try both, see what kind of temps you get on the CPU and the GPU's and then decide. Most of the time, intake will benefit the CPU while making the graphics cards a bit hotter.

It's a custom one, you can either get it from MNPCtech and from some guy on youtube which name I can't for the life of me remember. Ask Sparkles she has one of those biggrin.gif

I'm thinking of going with that setup as well.

Since you're using an H100i, you put the rad on top right? So no fans required on top?

Are these the Bitfenix LED strips you're talking about? If so, then which one should I search for from among the four on that page? Also, what is the difference between the four?

Sucks that its a custom one. Would've been much easier (and actually possible) for me to get if it was sold like any other stuff. Maybe I can find out what material they used and get it made locally. Hopefully someday.

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate the help! smile.gif

So I played with a few settings and haven't been back to it with work being so busy atm. But ill let you all know how I go!

I've got my top fans as intake because my house has ducted air con, so drawing the cool air straight from the top and pushing it down, I noticed a 3 deg C drop in idle temps from having them exhaust. Speaking of temps, I haven't pushed my 4770K yet but I have got much better temps than with my i7 960, idle temps with both my H50 and H80i were around 42 - 45 deg C with a maximum load under Prime 95 @ 88 - 92 @4ghz 1.34v. It was insanely hot, even after re-seating many times, different thermal compounds etc. So far at 3.9ghz I've got idle temps with the H80i @ 25 deg C and Prime 95 temps @ 56 - 66 deg C. I'm finding Haswell a LOT cooler so far than most and a lot cooler than the 960.

So far so good with my K70, its got individual key lighting so I've only got the main keys I use illuminated. The keys are a lot higher than my old keyboard so thats taken some getting used to. My M65 Mouse has been awesome, smooth scrolling and movement, it fits nicely into my big hands and is weighted just perfect. I downloaded the software and done the firmware update and so far fingers crossed its been smooth sailing.

That looks quite similar to the pile of boxes on my floor smile.gif If I got my 3770k to 4.7GHz I'm sure that 4770k will go even further.. Especially with all those bios options.
The K70 is a great keyboard, took a little getting used to but I love mine now biggrin.gif

Thanks for the quick reply! smile.gif

Another solution could be to use only one 200mm Megaflow in the front (with lights cut off), two AF120s on top and one AF120 on the backside. Then I could use a LED lighting kit (which one do you recommend btw?) to light up the case. Does that sound feasible to you?

Also, do you recommend intake or exhaust for the fans on top?

10c is a lot and would help a lot too. But the dust is what I fear. I'm not using the mesh panel yet and already the case is full of dust. This is why I don't think that I'll be modding the window.

Speaking of the window, I saw someone using a fully transparent side cover for their 600T. Is that readily available for purchase or was that a custom one?

Thanks a lot! smile.gif[/quote]

I think highly of my Spectre PRO's. I have five of them and i love the all. SOme people though have said that t makes alot of noise, Its a lot of hit and miss with them..
