With side mesh and single SP120 : 75c top GPU, 62c Bottom GPU

With side mesh and single AP-15: 70c top GPU, 60c Bottom GPU


SO that's a 10c difference with the side mesh and a single AP-15. Dam the mesh is ugly though. I'm dissapointed now, i was in love with my SLI setup, now i'm thinking differently of it due to temperatures of the top card.

I wish they did an all acrylic side panel here in the UK with a fan mount, that would give the best of both worlds!

Not sure what to do now...

And with waterblocks you could drop them both down to about 40-50c with a lot less noise and still be able to use the window, albeit more money. Then you can have your cake and eat it too. Plus watercooling is smexy looking

Guys, I'm having a lot of trouble finding information about good LED fans for my V6 GT. I would really appreciate if anyone could help me out if they know anything about this or have some links to share. As far as fans for heatsinks go, I see a lot of recommendations for Scythe Gentle Typhoons, Silverstone Air Penetrators and Cougar fans. Now, aside from the fact that none of those have LEDs, I really don't like their aesthetics except for the Cougars, but if we're talking about non LED fans I think the Corsair SPs would take the cake anyway. I've been browsing the Air Cooling forums with not results. I guess most people don't care about having LEDs on their heatsinks. I guess maybe I should also make a thread there?

As an aside, I was also wondering if anyone's tried the new NZXT FZ fans? They made them proper 200mm. I'm super curious about how they compare to the Bitfenix SPs. I think I'm not the only one curious about the "200mm scene" since it's still young. Always looking for competitors.

I am not sure why I never joined this wonderful club! I have had a white 600T for about a year now and read this thread from time to time, when I have time smile.gif I am about to start an unnecessary but fun upgrade to a sabertooth z77, 3770k and h100i so I will post some photos of the inside after I am done. Here's my setup now.

*

I am planning on moving my hard drives up into 5.25 bays and looking at a couple different products. Anyone have some feedback on which one to choose? The Cooler Master and Evercool is the cheapest because I can find it in Korea. The others I have to pay Amazon shipping on (about the cost of the product).

1. Xigmatek 4 in 3 - I have seen pictures of other people using it. Plus, it has 120mm fan. Negative, I will have to remove it to clean the dust filters. http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=97#.UTlOcdZHKJs
2. Vantec HDC-800A - Plus, it has dust filter built in, Negative, ugly logo on front, small 80mm fan. http://www.vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/442
3. Everycool HD-AR-RBK - Same plus and negatives as Vantec. http://www.evercool.com.tw/categories/global/cooler/hddcooler/hd-ar-r/armor.php
4. Cooler Master 4 in 3 - Plus, 120mm fan. Negative, ugly logo and no dust filter http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=2542

@Gyrael, If you're trying to push air through a rad or heatsinks you should always use high static pressure fans. The Stock fans from the H80i are SP120s i think and they do a very good job. try reading this, might help you decide http://www.anandtech.com/show/6177/choosing-the-best-120mm-radiator-fan-testing-eight-fans-with-corsairs-h80

@Zillerella You can cut the inner grill, it'll improve airflow and get rid of the whine. You can go to a trusted metal shop or friend or whatever if you can't do it yourself.. but a rotary tool is very easy to use. here's a pic of how i did it.. i just cut along the thin separators that the holes made,=.

Yeah, I know about static pressure. As I said though, my problem is that none of those fans have LEDs except for the Sickleflows, which don't do a good job. I had read that article before, and it's actually the reason it made me wanna research this, since I currently have Sickleflows on my V6 GT and evidently I could do better. It's especially important for me to have those LEDs because they are the source of lighting on my case. As I said, if we're talking about fans without LEDs, I already know I could go for the Corsair SPs, or even those NZXTs for the white fan blades. But alas, my mystery is the LED heatsink fan.

I appreciate the link anyways though! Thank you.

Did you try looking for that post I mentioned? I might do that for you anyway whenever I have spare time since I'm curious myself.

Posted a pic before but i think forgot to add these. First pic is from earlier. I recently got an ssd + hdd and a dremel that allowed me to remove the "ribs" on the removable filters

Sorry for the pics, taken with my phone so not the best.

I wish i could but i don't don't trust myself with a watercooled loop also my dad would kill me as he is convinced its not safe and i'm living in his house at the moment so don't want to upset him! Also waterblocks for the GPU's alone will set me back about £150.

Here in the UK the temperature inside / outside very rearly gets warm, its just finding a happy medium to suit all my needs of side window and cooling at same time.

I found a chap in the USA who can make an all clear side panel but he wants $75 + $68 for delivery which is fair enough but that makes it over £100 which is a lot of money.

Gyrael - The 120mm fan infront of the GPU's made hardly any difference atall. a few c at very most. The side panel fan made a 10c difference but whistled through the side mesh and it didn't look that great either.

that's way too cheap. i asked mnpctech to estimate everything for me and went about $220. $75 for the whole side panel is too cheap though. an acrylic sheet worth $75 would be like 1meter x 450mm in my place, you can't use them with the 600t, knowing that the side panel is 620mm x 550mm.
