Yes, default has the window installed, but you can remove it and put the mesh in (thats what i use, i ziptied a 200mm fan to the mesh lol)

prob has the 5.25" Drivebay for the HDDs.
I'd do the same, but i use too many HDDs

EDIT: Also, I would keep the H70 fans and the GPU fans constant to avoid confounding variables if we are talking fan configuration

Hey Cesar.

You know, when I did this chart I was poking around with the software and I found the area for graphing. I'll be damned if I could figure out how to use it though. I don't really poke around in office that much. I only have it because I have a huge Excel file with a list of all my movies so I can access it on my comp and on my Winmo phone (Yeah, that's right. I said Winmo, anyone wanna make something of it?). Lol, a little sensitive I guess...

The short of it is, it seemed too much like work to me. Heck, I couldn't even figure out how to add a new row in Access without having to add it at the bottom. Otherwise I would have added the H70 row under the other fans.

I didn't fix the H70 fans RPM because I wanted to illustrate how better airflow can allow the cooler fans to operate a little slower.
Good idea on the averages. I'm adding the row (at the bottom...lol) now.

I can send you the file if you like. I suppose a graph of H70 vs H100 would be cool. Hmmm, maybe I should do one test with the H70 fans maxed just to see if there is any difference. The CPU never gets warm enough to make the fans run at 100% so I am curious about it.

I just got finished removing my Northbridge heatsink so I could add better TIM. I also removed the tin "Ultra Durable 2" plate from the heatsink as well. This allowed me to get a better mount of the chipset cooler fan I use. The Northbridge actually had one of those silicon thermal pads. The vertical portion along the back of the board for the regulators had a very thick thermal pad. What a poor way to set up those heatsinks. Unfortunately if I removed the pad from the regulator portion of the heat sink it would not sit level anymore so I had no choice but to leave that thermal pad in place. I suppose it's not such a bad thing considering how rough the surface of that portion of the heatsink was. It even had a couple of burs. Shame on you Gigabyte.

The AS5 seemed to make a decent difference at medium loads. The temp of the Northbridge was equal to the Southbridge which I've never seen before. However, as I increased the load by using P95 and Furmark the temp creeped up to 2c below where it was yesterday. Still, better than nothing I guess. Since the AS5 needs 200 hours to cure it should get a little better.

i think its about time for me to consolidate all my HDDs. get me a larger ssd and a 2tb WD black for all my app/backup/movies/etc. i would love the extra space, as well as less wires to deal with.
ummmm. stuff

The H70 left on auto/PWM with your testing has useful data, but the testing is a little more complex to analyze since you have a variable that you are not manipulating when it comes to the temps recorded. So while you could make a strong case for which fan config helps/keeps the H70 the quietest, it would be harder to recommend which fan config keeps your CPU the coolest since harder to tell if the external fans or the PWM curve programmed into the mobo is making the most difference. If you attach a copy of the file I will make a template with chart/graphs built in, all you would need to do is dump your data in the specific cell for the H100 and the template will do the rest. I could leave it on Google Docs if you wish so you can embed it into one of your posts.


My previous Gigabyte mobo NB could hit 70ºC, it was ridiculous. It seemed to be on tight but something had to be wrong. Looking around some of the Gigabyte mobo owner threads, Gigabyte is known for having some pretty bad chipset heatsinks/TIM.

And one of my 200mm NZXT fans died. I knew it was on its deathbed, when I touched the hub of the fan it was stupid hot and the RPMs were slowing down, then one day it just stopped spinning. They are too loud and they aren't PWM,but I don't see anything out there that can touch its specs. I think I am going to order another and try out the Sunbeam Rheosmart 6, I have read that AP15s and the Rheosmart is best for water-cooling setups.

I know that the site states ATX and mATX... but I see in some signatures that there are some eATX boards in the cases. Is that true or just outdated profiles. I think I've seen 2-3 on here.

That really sucks about the NZXT fan, but it should have a year warranty so maybe you should just send it for RMA?

So, I have always had this little glitch with my computer where every once in a while I'd notice my clock is back at stock. I don't know why it happens and it's really starting to....well, you know. So yesterday I was setting up to add another row with the H70 at 100% and I noticed some things weren't running quite as snappy. I checked and sure enough my clock was stock again.

So I checked all the screen shots I did the day before and, well.....look at my avatar.

They were all at 2.5GHz. This doesn't invalidate them, but I had wanted everything at 3.3GHz.

So, I stayed up all night redoing all the tests. I did them all at 3.3 and I had the H70 set at full. I haven't done the chart yet, I am going to start on it right away. Should be ready in a couple of hours (I have some other things to do too).

The thing that kills me is that when I turned my comp on today, it reset a couple of times like it does when you change BIOS settings. So I entered BIOS and the clocks were at stock again. I'll have to keep an eye on that.

On the other hand, I'm surprised how good the temps are after the overclock.

Oh, that Sunbeam Rheosmart 6 looks like a great match for this case. It only has one PWM controller though. I guess it doesn't matter of you're mostly using 3 pin fans. Personally I think I like controllers that give you the RPM.

OK, here we go. I think I have everything now:

fanvstemp33.jpg

Ambient at the time was 25c. All tests except idle were performed using Prime95 default settings and Furmark default settings. The idle test was done allowing the board to throttle the clock down to 2.5GHz. All other tests were at 3.3GHz. The two "all fans" tests were 30 minutes while all individual fan tests were 15 minutes.

Looks like the exhaust fans are having more of an effect now with the higher temps. This will be interesting to compare with the stock H100.

Here is a typical test run:

allfans10033ghz.jpg

I've added a rar with the Access file.

If anyone sees any boo boos let me know and I'll fix em.
