Not to try and Double post, but today, I was rearranging my computer to set it up to make custom heat channels in it, and decided to try something. BTW, these stock Antec fans are Hella Loud outside the case. just so you know, after I did this I saw a 3C diff in CPU/liquid temps, and a 7C drop in NB temps. And it probably dropped the temps of my Voltage Regulators too, but I have no way of telling.

That's how my rad is setup, are you showing that you changed the top fan to intake?
post #1043 of 6063
had actually turned it around the other day, just didn't take pics.

Actually, may have been your post that made me want to move the fan to the outside of the case. i figured, other than putting my fingers through the fan while trying to plug in a USB device in the back, couldn't hurt. so far i've seen nothing but improvements! thumb.gif

Only issue I have doing this is when I put my side panel on, I found out, the fan sticks slightly in the way of the rear tab where the screw goes in on it. Gonna have to shave one or the other so I don't bend it.

keep your fingers safe, plug in USB to the front LOL

yeah I'm idling at 51 just like the Big Typhoon, and I have tried all 3 profiles in CC (Custom: ramp start 27c, full fan 41c) and it's just noisy as hell with terrible temps. maybe half the liquid evaporated? lol
post #1045 of 6063
for real! I need to find my old 120MM grill to go over it.

as for me, I keep my low at 28, and my high anywhere from 34-36. Need to put it where at 100% load, your temps only raise just a few degrees. if it means dealing with the noise, well, you decided to go that route when you bought it.

I went with a sealed water cooler because I thought it would be quiet and declutter the case, and possibly allow me to OC more while keeping the same load temps or better.

The BT takes up basically 120mm^3 and puts a lot of weight on the mobo due to its weight.

yeah, see what you mean. With that setup I would definately have made some hangers or something to take the weight off the motherboard. This setup takes all the wieght off the motherboard, but the Stock fans are loud, and it puts all the weight on the back of the case, which most well built cases can support.

what's it take to replace the Antec fans? the y-splitter has different pins. I tried leaving one fan disconnected to use another fan plugged into a mobo fan header and the one Antec fan that was plugged in wouldnt spin up.
post #1049 of 6063
try swapping the plugs for the fan coming off the pump. I think I remember one of the plugs is just relayed from the other plug to recieve info one how fast to move. AKA, if there isn't one plugged into the fan plug that sends the info, the one plugged into the reciever will not move cause it does not know how fast to spin. Make any sense at all?
