Help rusty Chess fanatic build a system--choosing a mobo remains! - Page 3

Indeed, point well taken. Luckily he's patient, and will transfer me to someone after today's finalization of the order 3000 miles closer to me.

I've learned from another thread to go with the Scythe Mugen Rev.B heatsink.

2. I've dared to forgo any stand-alone video card, as the 890GX chipset has enough in its IGP for my needs (browsing 50 tabs, okay? serious gaming, I'm not into).

3. Upgrading to the Seasonic non-modular 600W S12 PSU, the 750 is out of stock in my province.

4. attaching 1-3 more fans to the heatsink, if there's no room for the 3rd and 4th one, I'll get them to put it in the top of the CMaster 212 HAF case.

Anyone ever install 3 or 4 fans onto a Scythe Mugen 2-Rev.B heatsink?
I'm led to believe that two is fine, and the reviews approve of this but don't address 3 or 4 fans.

The local retailer has so few clipsets for this heatsink I'm led to believe that few people even bother to install 2 fans.

I made a mistake about ignoring the need for a high-impedance fan but that was corrected after some reading.

Who makes the best high impedance fans? I'm going with Noctua

30,000MTBF is not enough if I'm running it at full tilt as this is only 3.5 years...

My system has been delivered and I spent a day adding 2x320GB HDs, a couple of fans and a TV tuner + fax modem.

The 912 HAF stock case fans have been flow-reversed to suit the Scythe Mugen 2 philosophy of push-push, one is rear to front, the other is bottom to top; no way to fit a 12cm fan over the RAM.

Stock case fans:
rear fan: 12cm intake
front fan: 12cm outtake

I've added 2 old 8cm fans:
top case fan: intake
side case fan: intake

I'm going to move the 12cm stock Scythe heat-sink fan currently on the top of the case as an intake fan over the RAM to the 3rd side of the heat-sink as soon as my vendor mails me the fan clip set. That would make the heatsink fan setup as a triple push with the bare side beside the RAM

Questions:
1. I've got more intake than outtake, the front of the case on the top has passive outtake flow.

2. wondering if I should just put stockings on the top intake of the case for a filter.

In computer vs computer matches, the hashtables are typically set to 256MB, I have 16GB RAM installed, I guess I'm going to have to do a lot of reading.

Also, the UAC to setting or fixing large memory pages is hard to figure out with Windows 7 OS, anyone know how?

May not really be an overclocking type of question, but this is my orphan thread, echoing the thoughts within.

Can you explain how 3 fans pushing against each other is going to cool well?Makes no sense what so ever.

Can you explain why a pot of water boils faster if you apply downward pressure onto the electrical element? (not gas)

The experimental results are the proof, I figure it out after I see the results (see link somewhere in the few threads I've commented on).

Thats because you have better contact with the electrical element allowing better conductivity (allowing better heat transfer).

You might want to set the fans the "accepted" way though. The main thing to remember is heat rises.

You might see better temps since you're blowing directly on your components but you're pushing heat downward and it has to go somewhere.

But than it also depends on case.

UAC settings are in the control panel, in the System and Secruity tab.

Page file is in control panel, in the System -> Advance Systems Settings -> Advance -> Performance Settings -> Advance -> Virtual Memory Settings

Good luck.
