[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 236

post #2351 of 18196
Just found out from Corsair that the built in fan controller in the 600T is 12W per channel. And the Xigmatek fans I am getting are 2.4W each for the 120mm CLF series fans, and 5.04W for the 200mm CLF series of fans.

So I could put 4 of the 120mm fans on one channel and only be using 9.6 watts. That is if my math is right and I did use a calculator lol. biggrin.gif

Would anyone find this helpful?

Not personally. However, kudos for reading the entire thread. Not many people take the time to do that. It's always been one of my pet peeves when a new user comes on and asks the same questions that have been asked and answered 100 times in previous posts. Note that this is a "medium flow" case, so it doesn't have the best cooling. It might be a really good idea to do your comparison just to see how much your sound dampening affects the cooling just for yourself, although I'm sure others would appreciate it as well.

In fact, I'd bet there are other people who would be thrilled if you did the audio noise comparison.

Welcome to the club.

Great job. Very different colour. How did you mount your "hard drive cage fan"?

to mount the 120mm fan on the hard drive cage i used one of my favorite mod/mounting tools. Velcro tape biggrin.gif simple to install, easy to remove and the adhesive part doesn't leave much of a residue if it needs to be taken off.
ummmm. stuff

On CesarNYC's idea of using a dbl meter, it did pique my curiosity to look online for one. Problem is, seems that everything is rated 30db and up. Ideally, I'd like it to start at 20db, and at that price point, it's not worth it (for me) to invest into something I won't be using all that much...

I'm actually having 2nd thoughts on taking any measurements, as these would probably fail under scientific scrutiny. The case would have to be in the same spot, same distance from decibel reader, decibel reader positioned exactly the same way, and other things that I simply cannot control to such a degree if I'm to be working different fan configs. It would be nice, though!

Still, even if not 100% accurate, at least to give some idea in difference would be useful... hmmm... I'll have to think about this.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Does anybody here know if the expansion tank & pump unit from the XSPC RS240 kit fits properly in the optical drive bays of this case? Just wondering because of the tool-less system in use. Thanks in advance.

The tooless rail thing is easily removed (and reinstalled), and your left with your standard 5.25 cage with screw holes. Anything designed to fit in the 5.25 one way or another will fit. I had a fan controller that was not secure without adding some screws, and I have the xigmatech 4-3 HDD cage that fits perfectly into the tooless rail.

Not really about the case itself, per say, but any of you guys carrying on the theme of your case into the room's set up?

I'm always awed by well-coordinated systems (rooms/desk area included).

EDIT: All my parts just got to my door and, quite frankly, I just want to put everything together and skip all the SCIENCE! Heh.

Here's what I got:

CPU: Intel i5-2500k
MOBO: Gigabyte Z68X UD3H-B3
HEATSINK: Venomous X-RT2 (silent edition, includes two low rpm fans and white fan shrouds)
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2x4GB)
GPU: XFX Radeon HD6950 2GB (dual fan)
SSD: Crucial M4 64GB
PSU: Antec 750W Gamer

SALVAGED (from other rig): Sata Samsung Optical Drive, 2X500GB WD Sata HDDs

EXTRAS:
6 fans - Scythe SlipStream 120mm (3x1200rpm, 3x800rpm)
Modright Noise Dampening Material
Mod/Smart Kobra Cables extensions (some white, some red)

MISCELLANEOUS: 3 bottles of Flor De Cana 18-year-aged rum (my own body's "liquid cooling", plus I owe some friends a bottle)

And of course, the 600t SE case was here already...

It could actually be done fairly simply. Instead of using a dB scale, just use a microphone going into a computer and any piece of software with an audio VU meter. You can rank all the noise on the VU meter scale as "before" and "after" and even include a short audio clip. If you add before and after temps it should give people a good idea how a similar change in their system would affect noise and temps. After all, no one is going to have exactly the same case fans and layout as you have anyway, so absolute readings would not be as meaningful as a "change in readings". Just call it a noise delta.
