[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 672

post #6711 of 18196
I am currently building my system but here is what I did. I replaced all case fans, the corsair stock fans ar junk.

Front 200mm - BitFenix Spectre Pro (non-led) as intake
Rear 120mm - BitFenix Spectre Pro (non-led) as exhaust

I also removed the top 200mm corsair fan and replace it with 2 Noctua NF-F12's that are on my H100 cooler

I think those are some pretty solid choices.

i love the look of the asus sabertooth! i already have a z77 motherboard, but as soon as intel launches a new chipset serie, i hope i can upgrade with a new sabertooth moterboard.

The Sabretooth had everything I wanted in a board. The look of it was what originally drew me in, the layout and all of the features interested me, and the thermal radar and the ability to block off unused slots to keep dust out sold me on it. Once I got it running I was really happy with the BIOS as well. The only problem with it was a little frustrated with internet speeds because of the Network iControl but once I figured that out it was smooth sailing.

That is a sexy board. I have the 990FX Sabertooth and I really like it. I just wish it was for Intel but it does what I need so definitely next build will be Intel unless AMDs Piledriver turns out to be good.

can you explain the icontrol thing and how to disable it? I would like to know for when it comes time toget my system up and running

thanks,
chris

Chris, From what I understand the Network iControl is supposed to take certain programs that use an internet connection and make them priority to optimize their usage. Also you can set it to have certain programs be prioritized at different times of the day. If you choose to disable it, the only thing you have to do is go into your AI Suit II and go to the Network iControl and turn it off. You can also just not even install it when you are installing your different features that come with the Sabretooth Z77 driver disk. Im sure that the Network iControl is beneficial if you have the time to sit down and configure it correctly. But to me it is just a hassle so I just chose not to use it. I should also mention that I switched to the Google DNS server because even after disabling the Network iControl my internet browsing was not 100%. That may not be an issue for you, but if for some reason it is then here is the link I used: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using Good luck with the new system man, im sure you will enjoy this board thumb.gif

I would like to replace the front fan with a Megaflow 200mm Silent and move the HDD cage back. That turns with 700 rpm and sucks 110 cfm in, right? This is the for the NZXT FS-200 Enthusiast Silent Case Fan, which one is better?
So: what do I need on top if I would like to use two 140mm? should they turn also with bout 700RPM so that the fan controller on the 600t scales all the fans nicely??? and should they exhaust about 110 cfm or more? Would that make the Noiseblocker BlackSilentPro-Series PK1 a perfect fit? They are silent and turn with 700 rpm. BitFenix Spectre PRO 140mm Lüfter turn with 1200 RPM, would that be better?
What about the rear fan?
Somewhere I was reading that the Fancontroller has some Voltage limitations...does that mean i can ruin it when using the wrong fans????
I would like the system to scale nicely if possible!
Sorry for all that questions but it is my first build!
thanks

Here is what i know of the fan controller. The fan controller is rated up to 0.5A, that will allow to run 6 watts per port. I currently have 6 fans on my controller and it has run fine since day 1, 5 months ago.I am well under the amps required per channel and all you have to do is look at the amps or watts of a fan to know whether or not it will pull too much watts or amps.

Mega flow 200 mm Silent (http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6474) Current (Ampere) 0.16 A (Max 0.28 A); Power Consumption 3.36 W so 1 per channel

NZXT FS-200 Enthusiast Silent Case Fan (http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/case_fans/fs_200rb) Current: .42A; Input: 4.08W also 1 fan per channel

BlackSilentPro-Series PK1 (http://www.noiseblocker.de/Datenblaetter/Datenblatt_BSP_PK140mm_de_en.pdf) input power voltage (W) 0,72 Watt this would be 4 per channel

BitFenix Spectre PRO 140mm (http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/accessories/spectre-pro#specs) Current (A) 0.18A ±10% at best 2 per channel

Keeping in mind that you have listed a desire for a 140mm fan on top you will not be able to use the holes corsair has provided. I would recommend using 2 120mm fans as the case was designed for that. As for which is better it looks like the bitfenix is better.

Ive searched left and right and cannot find an answer to this question; I have an H100 and was wondering if its possible to place it where the HDD cages are on the floor next to the intake 200mm fan? If I could I would like to keep the 200mm exhaust on the roof. But lets say it isnt possible to place the H100 on the floor where the cages are, would it be better to push or pull from the roof of the case? I know Corsair's H100 install video states to PUSH cool air in from the roof, and also believe that heat rises and PUSHING would be fighting the heat rising making PULLING a more reasonable approach. Btw my ambient air temp in my house is ~79-82 degrees Fahrenheit.
