Oh..

Also -- I have my loop running from my pump to rad to gpu to cpu to rad to pump.

I did this because heat tends to want to rise naturally, so I run it from bottom to top to allow it to do that.

My GPU temp on full load has not gone over 35c under max burn in mode on furmark with 1080p res and 8x AA.

Its overclocked to 950/1450 -- CCC and MSI Afterburner wont let the 6970 go any further yet.

My CPU is a Phenom X6 and its running @ 4GHZ and doesnt reach over 42c under full 3 hour Prime95 load.

I have ordered a sandy bridge + 2600k which I will be replacing this rig with. I ended up selling this setup to a friend who needed a PC and I will be giving him the mobo/cpu/ram and putting my Sandy Bridge stuff in next week.

they are both intake though..

I added the front 140mm intake fan yesterday and I also placed one at an angle in the extra hdd cage spot... Im not sure adding the front 140 fan did anything, but adding the one in the hdd cage spot definitely helped my temps... both cpu and mobo temps dropped... mobo temps dropped 2-3c on average and cpu temps dropped 2-4c... this is on very little load though.

Here's my Phantom with the XSPC Rasa 240 Kit, which fits really well in this case.

Anyone tried fitting a 360 rad up top yet?
post #527 of 15204
Anyone set up a push/pull 240 up top? I can't seem to get it to fit and wondering if someone has done it yet...

Just a FF, Had my case set up with everyone but the side panel on, Load temps 42C @ 4.0, put the side panel on with the 200mm and 2 120's, load temps went down to 38C:)

Found it thanks, Think you must have the revised Phantom? because the bottem side of my lid doesn't look like yours, I might try and see if it will work though. thanks.

I bet if you call NZXT, they'll hook you up with the revised version.
