Cooling prep for hot summer.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

If you have ever been in south Turkey, you probably know how hot this region of the world is especially in summer (though still not comparable to middle eastern countries or equador).

My room temp. in summer is like 35 celcius degrees and that's when i open my window and door.

I built this rig in January and i doubt whether it'll be enough to keep my heavily overclocked system cool or not.

My current temps: (room temp. is 23C)
CPU idle: 32-35C, CPU load in gaming:65C, CPU load in p95: 75C
GPU idle: 40C, GPU load: 70C
HDDs: 25C
NB idle: 45C, NB load: 55C, SB: n/a

Current cooling parts:
CPU Cooling: VenX +Sunbeams 2x120mm 45CFM silent UV led fans
Ram Cooling: OCZ XTC default passive ram heatsink
GPU Cooling: Stock
HDD Cooling: 120mm front intake fan
NB&SB Cooling: Stock

Parts i'm planning to upgrade:
CPU Cooling: 2x120mm Scythe Slipstreams 110CFM + MX3
Ram Cooling: OCZ XTC 2 active ram cooler (2x60mm fans)
GPU Cooling: TIM replace with MX-3
HDD Cooling: No change
NB&SB Cooling: TIM replace with MX-3



I haven't added second GPU yet but i have concerns that the intake fan will be insufficient. So i'm considering getting an air penetrator for the upper intake fan slot (right above the HDD cage). Do you think it would help my GPUs to breathe? They'll be very close to each other.

One comment (at this moment):
You are facing the classic problem of having that 2-mm gap between 2 graphic cards. To alleviate, IMHO, I strongly suggest adding a 120mm fan right in front of the 2 HD6870s, possibly even adding a self-made wind shroud to channel the air into the gap. See pic below for the idea.
