Success!

RS240 up top w/ 2 NZXT 120mm fans and a Phobya Xtreme 200mm w/ a 200mm NZXT. Both rads have cold air pushing though them and into the case.

Next time I order from Preformance-PCs.com I will replace the 45 going from the res to the Phobya w/ a 90. I will be upgrading my GTX470 to a 580/590 in a month or two and I will put that under water too.

My temps dropped form 75c to >50c while folding compared to my H50.

Thats in line with what I saw on air.

A probe in the exhaust air stream of the referance ATi cooler showed a 35'c idle and 64.7'c max.
Fan speed never went above 34%.
These are good temps. Makes me wish you had some "before" stats with that
grill mod. I didn't want to bust out the dremel but I think I am going to have too. The only thing is I am not crazy about 3DMark11 as a tool for temperture testing, I feel like in between tests the GPU temps come tumbling down.

At 900MHz, they never got over 70c. The top card never got over 65c. Im using an H70 with a 4.8ghz overclock on a 2600k as well.

I have the mesh side panel and 2 fans installed there, which may be why im seeing such low temps. Or it may be because the Twin Frozr IIIs on the MSIs are really awesome.

For fans, im using 2 Gentle Typhoons @ 1450rpm and my computer is very quiet (anecdotal and subjective I know, but I have no means of measuring sound).
Haven't seen anyone use GTs on the side panel. These are also excellent temps, even more impressive when you consider your cards dont exhaust out the back. I have seen more then one post complaining MSI TF cards running hot in this case, would love to isolate how you are making it work for you.

Looks great, please post some temps when you have a chance. Mounting the pump on the HDD cages is a bold move.


So I was thinking on my way home today. Instead of looking to have just one person trying a multitude of fan configurations, maybe a small group would have a greater chance of getting it done. It would be a little more complicated because of the various setups and environments, but I think we could find some common ground and work it out.

I am going to try this one more time, I am looking for at least three people to volunteer and help test and retest different fan configs (more people would be better). We would decide what configs were the most interesting and how to test, and compare results. The goal would be to find the config that had the best/repeatable/across the board temps, and when confident with the findings share with the community. If I can't get at least three people to commit I will have to accept the fact that there just isn't enough interest to invest the time an effort to get this done, and I will let it go. Either let me know in this thread or PM me if interested.

Looks awesome man. So you have 2 rads, 1 240 and 1 120? Also, where is your pump?

I'm seriously considering taking the plunge into water cooling and your pics definitely entice me even more!

@CesarNYC, i just did 30 minutes straight with 3dmark11 test 4 and i hit temps of 74c at 900MHz core and 4600MHz mem clock. I've got the new v7 F@H client going right now for last hour and temps are holding at 64c/66c for each card. I have the GPU fans set at 60% so not really ideal for my quiet living room. tongue.gif The GPU fans are the only thing you can hear. The 4 GTs cant be heard at all from 2 feet away.

Why do you say that? I was worried about it vibrating but its mounted on a 1/4" foam pad.

@4.6GHz its 55c max while folding it was 75c-80c w/ the H50.

1 240mm rad and 1 200mm rad. The pump is behind the reservoir they are attached.

Don't think you can beat it for the price. wink.gif
That's great. What a wonderful product. I can't believe every computer shop in North America doesn't have that in stock. That's really a great cost effective tool.

The air/water separator is a must if your using it for PC dusting.

Can't get much closer than that. I haven's ever had any issues with moisture since I keep the bottom valve open when it's not in use, however that does look like a good idea. I think I'll look into it.

Looks sweet too. The more I hear about people doing this, the more I am inclined to follow in suit. It seems like a very inexpensive way to get a good boost in airflow. How is the structure after cutting out that grill? Still nice and solid?

I don't know how helpful this might be, but here is a link to a great fan comparison someone passed along:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/859483-round-6-fan-testing-working-thread.html

It may make it easier to decide which fans to test.

(quiet voice) But I like LED fans....shiny.....

Hey bud, I'd be willing to help with fan configurations but being in Canada I guess I'm out or the running. Also, although screen shots are no problem, I'm not really Mister Graph Chart Dude. A table maybe.....

Very good temps indeed, you should try using Furmark simultaneously with Prime95 if you want a more standardized test with a higher torture level. That software will make your PC cook.

Wow, hate to be negative but all the information on the airflow in this case has been available for a long time. I know it's not the best, but that's what I expected when I bought it. To me this is the Caddy of mid-tower cases. Personally, I bought it for the features and appearance more than the air flow (as well as the size, being a large mid tower it fits where I want it to fit). However, my old case was WAY worse than this case for air flow. In my old case my HD4870 was hitting 97c and I saw it hit 101c during last summer. So call the 600T a medium airflow case, that's fine with me. You can still get good airflow through modding and personally I'm happy with that, as are most of the people here. My roommate has a HalfX and it runs cooler than my case, but he's not overclocking and he's not running two 6970 cards. My CPU is cooler than stock cooling, my video cards run cooler than they would have in my old mini tower. I'm a happy camper temps wise.

Whats the total cost to do a water kikt like you have?

Anyone link a good water starter kit?

this one? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11743/ex-wat-159/XSPC_Rasa_750_RS240_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_-HOT.html?tl=g30c321s1310#blank

Thanks for the response. I just finished my build and will post pics soon!
post #2010 of 18197
So my build seems to be very similar to Nootron's but I wanted to post pics and join the club anyway! I am running both 580 Lightnings at the stock 832MHz right now and my temps in 3DMark 11 so far haven't gone above 66C. My CPU temps in IBT with AVX top out at around 75C @ 4700MHz and 1.35v. These temps seem pretty awesome to me so I'm not sure what the problem is with some users? I'm running an H60 in P/P with two Gelid Silent 12 PWM fans if you were wondering. Anyway, here's some pics of my new baby!
