Previous one died hence why I decided to clean up and fix up things I wish I had done the first go around. New intake method along with new cpu block has me sitting around 61c under load for my 5820k 4.5ghz. Which is a lot better then previously. Was hitting high 70s...

any idea that ~9c difference is due to top intake or new CPU block?

Coz if it is because of intake then i'll probably set the top just like you wink.gif

Well I think its mostly due to the new block. I was running the loop into the out port of my previous one for some unknown reason but even after I fixed that It was still hitting high 70s under load. This new one is full copper and the groves on the inside cover a much larger area so I think it is doing most of the hard work. Now though I am sure that the top intake is helping a bit too. We like to keep it cold here and having two fresh air intakes probably go a long way over that second rad dealing with only hot air as it was before. The only issue now is that the case is getting filled with hot air and there is nothing forcing it out. Had to move the top rad to align with the runs and by doing so it does not allow for a fan in the back as I had planned. A slim fan will do but I had none around so got to wait on Amazon to bring me one.

If you cut out the rear fan grille, you can mount the fan on the outside smile.gif

Maybe i'll go another route, buy an acrylic or pc sheet and drill 4 holes since the r5 already had them in place.

Here is another option.

No need. They got 15mm fans out there that will do the job just fine and Silverstone has one that is black and white which will match the build so we are all good. Thanks though.

Acrylic and magnet tape works very well. My rig for reference.

that will be better.

So do you only apply the magnetic tape onto the acrylic or on both the acrylic and the case?

I agree but my only issue with the magnetic tape was the air bubbles visible on the adhesive side. I just used some black electrical tape along the edges to cover it all up.

Arc Mini is the best! I actually bought the shroud from a guy on eBay. He makes them for the R4/R5, but he cut one to size for me. It's a single piece of metal that has been bent. He asked for pics of the one that he sent me, so I believe he is thinking about making them for the Arc Mini as well.

Just the acrylic.
