If so what's your idle and max temp please?
I'm getting an idle temp of late 30's to low 40's and a max temp of mid 70's.
My Midi used to idle at late 20's and max temp was mid 60's (although that was the H100)
Quite tempted to install my D14 and see if I can get lower temps but it's so huge on my matx board that it just touches the graphics card frown.gif

I had a similar problem (I was using an H100) my temps were not as high, but I ended up going back to a tower cooler.

DCII cards are amazing, but they exhaust all their hot air into the case. (I'm running 2x 680 DCII's) A Hyper 212+ dropped my temps (on both my CPU and GPU's)

I have a Megahalems Black in the mail......I'm hoping I will get even better performance out of it. smile.gif

Thanks for the reply. I'm really tempted by the Red Megahalems purely because it's Black and Red. I might wait until some of my stuff sells on ebay and then buy it. What fans are you going to put on it?

Going to use a pair of Corsair SP 120mm's (most likely on 7v).

I was looking for a decent tower cooler, but for us guys using an E-ATX board, most BIG coolers (D14, Silver Arrow, ect.) are out, due to the fact that they hit the top PCI-E slot

The Megahalems sounds like a prime choice, it's an "oldie" but still considered a staple of big-air cooling.

If my SP120s don't sell then I'll use them (7V like you) or AP-15s.

It is indeed an oldie but it's still going strong.

Idle is low-mid 30's and just under 70c on load. I have my fan profiles set to "balanced" in Corsair Link

Thanks for the comparison. Those temps are with all my fans running at full whack so I think my H80i isn't seated properly or my airflow is poor.

I have 2x Fractal 140mm fans in the front as intake, H80i with AP-15s on the rear as intake, 1x Fractal 140mm fan as exhaust in the roof (front slot) but I have been playing with fan orientations today and nothing seems to improve the temps.

Tomorrow I'll install the D14 and if it is better then I'll buy the Megahalems because it is about 10mm shorter than the D14 so it won't touch my graphics card backplate.

I also dropped my temps by using Corsair AF140's as intakes. The stock Fractal fans are whisper quiet...but they don't move nearly as much air as the Corsair fans.

(2x) AF140's as intakes, (2x) AF140's top exhaust, (1x) AF140 rear exhaust, and (2x) SP120's on the heatsink. Temps are awesome biggrin.gif

I was running 2x AF140s in the front, 1 in the roof and 2x SP120 HP on the H80i but I removed them to test and found that the temps stayed roughly the same and it was quieter with AP-15s and stock fans.

The AF140s sounded like they were being restricted by the front door and the grill in the roof and used to whistle slightly and because my PC is about 2 feet from my ear on top of my desk it got on my nerves. To get rid of the whistle I made a makeshift 25mm shroud from a broken AF140 but it looked terrible.
