Nice! I've always wanted to go open bench kinda thing, but I heard its bad for the HDD's unless you have direct cooling on 'em.

And data is not something I can afford to put at risk... at least not when you have over 4TB worth of the stuff...

Jesus man. Over 4TB? Why not make a file server out of an ooolllld computer? I'm considering doing that, or hosting a website from an old computer I have sitting in the office.

I haven't heard that. I'll ask my friend what his HDD temps are like, he runs open bench.

I have thought about that option, however 2 there are issues:

1) I'm planning on getting 2x4Gb Corsair Vengeance sticks

so I might be forced to use memory slots 3&4

2) With an east-west config, I'll remove the rear exhaust fan, lowering the sound from my case. It'll also save me having to chop holes in the top dust filter of my case, which seems to trap some of the warm air being blown upwards

So, either I go for an Archon with a north-south layout and potentially cut a hole in the top filter, or I consider either a VenX or a True-120 Rev.C

That's a tough decision, because this cooler is absolutely beastly. It'd honestly be worth it to mod your case imo.

Although I haven't tested my Archon at fan less, I have other rig running D-14 totally fanless with mild oc, and from my experience, fanless performance is better "inside" the case as long with good air flow than at open rig which probably doesn't have adequate air flow compared in the case.

Yeah, I won't try going passive without a case. It'll have zero airflow. Once I get my new case, I'll probably try it out and see what the temps are.

I think you can use slot 2 and 4 fine. The Archon should only take up the 1st slot.

I have same ram on my mobo on my archon. Obviously my board is different, but all your slots should be usable. That's why the archon was made tall rather than long. Mine runs in a east west configuration as well and I have extra space between the cooler ram. There shouldn't be any restrictions by using the archon other than case width.

Problem with a file server is the performance problem. Even accessing files through a gigabit connection I get the idea that bandwidth is limited. If someone can point me to a source that shows that there really is no performance loss through a gigabit file sever I'd go out and buy a server this instant... In all seriousness though, I'm just not quite sure about the performance loss when accessing large files over a network.... I can't test this myself because I don't have two computers that are wired directly using a gigabit connection.... frown.gif

Ok, I'm just about to do it right now... I'll get the results in asap, but just keep in mind that this is by no means scientific or methodical... I'm leaving all the settings at stock mainly because u don't wanna void the warranty on my CPU just cause I oc'd it...
