My first build just finished doing some cable management and swapping HDD tray around absolutely love the case. Big plans for this pc in the future but i think it will be more rewarding if i do it over time instead of all in 1 hit

Hi guys im looking for some advice on my options.

I currently have a H60 on exhaust push pull with 2xsp120 high pressure fans. I'm looking to try and improve my cpu temps when heavily overclock. My current setup handles a mild overclock nicely of 4.5ghz but once i go extreme it can't keep up. Noise is also an issue once i have to turn the sp120's up full blast.

What are my options? Things to consider are my accelero dumps heat in the case at two points. Near the core which goes out through the H60 and near the pci-e connections which gets exhausted out the top 200m. This keeps my gpu/vrm temps very low considering the heat that it dumps in the case.

I was initially thinking about adding a phanteks ph-tc14pe to my case and pointing it upwards so that it can blow towards the 200mm exhuast, but it doesn't look like it will fit. Having it exhausting towards the back would be ok, but the heat from the vrm side of the accelero then won't have a natural exhaust up with the phantek in the way.

The other option i can see is upgrading the H60 to a H80i and keeping my setup the same but i can't see this making much of a difference.

Here is a pic of my current setup. I'd like something that will go with my current theme, hence i was thinking about the blue Phanteks.





I really don't want to lose my top 200mm fan if possible as its a good way to exhaust the heat my accelero dumps in the case.

Suggestions welcome. smile.gif

Hi LtMatt,

I am by no means a pro, but first off I would remove the little black plastic riser next to the front intake, quite easy just pop the front panel off the case to get access. Secondly, remove that HDD cage as there's nothing in it it's just affecting your airflow. Thridly I would replace the top 200mm with 2x120mm, this will give much better exhaust performance. Forthly I would take a dremel to the stock fan grills (the perforated areas of the case where you screw on the fans) and remove them, again this will greatly help with both intake and exhaust airflow. And the last thing I could suggest would be to move your graphics card down 1 slot and re-rout it's power cables from the bottom gromet just like your front panel cables, this should help a little but doing this will clean up the case and make it look slightly better too. This is all really easy to do, and free.

Thats pretty much it before you consider going watercooled, unless you want to add more fans inside the case but then it's obviously gonna get a bit louder.

Like this:



(my cable managment is a bit different now than it is in this picture but I'm waiting for a few more bits before I post any new pics)

Hope that helps a bit mate, good luck.

LtMatt , if you take on 3volu7ion suggestion on moving your video card down first check with your mobo manual as most mobo's state that the GPU should be plugged in the first slot as you have done. thumb.gif

I stripped my build down tonight to give it a spring clean and also fitted a Bitfenix Recon White Fan Controller! What do you guys think?

Been a while since I posted my rig, so I will go ahead and show it off. Not finished yet, but getting there. Some copied and pasted from this thread here, which you can also find out more about these cheap LED light strips. 16.5 feet with 300 LEDs for 13 bucks is crazy, making my deal of 10 bucks per strip even more insane IMO

Here are some pics for the ladies out there.

Just UV cathode inside the FrozenQ UV blue reservoir and a signle RGB LED from my Aquaero which changes with my CPU temperature shining inside the tubing.



No UV cathode but lit with blue strip behind FrozenQ, lit at only 1%(looks more even in person)



All LEDs lit up but only 1%



UV cathode with only top and bottom LEDs, full 100%



And good view of what the FrozenQ reservoir looks like with the LEDs



A view looking through the 6 GT 2150 RPM fans(which disconnect/reconnect by theirselves thumb.gif )



A cool view of my Akasa viper fans in the LED light, for some reason it looked really cool and would only work with the LED light.
