jeez, bout to add yet another fan to my system to try and make air circulate through it. Made a lower partition using a 30 min parking sign I acquired at my last job. Need to cut out a 120MM hole and drill screw holes. Counting the 2 in the PSU and 2 on the GTX460, This will be fan #9. Thinking this Antec 650W may be reaching it's limit.cool.gif

I'll post pics when I finish, even though case modding is not the subject matter. These are my peeps, though!

Just bought mine last night, LOVE it. Its in my SFF Lan Rig. Switched from the H50 over to this because of the waterblocks low profile so I could mount my HDD right under the PSU
post #1053 of 6063
is the H20 620 worth the $60 newegg is wanting for it?
post #1054 of 6063
yeah, just buy 2 fans for it, cause the stock one is loud, and with a 2nd you can setup a push/pull.

On a different note, I think my Mobo crapped out. If it did, I may be having Asus give me a different one, or at least try. Really do not like the AMD base Chipset.

I just changed to intake from exhaust, and temps are higher for both CPU and GPU. Going to try and clean cpu/water block, reapply TIM, and do it again. The way it jumps 15c as soon as I start folding is nuts, even the air cooler took some time to climb 10c.

This is what I get for buying all the parts for a Brand new setup. No spares to eliminate bad parts. No Mobo, No processor, no RAM, No video card, No PSU... Up that creek w/o a paddle.

All I can offer is that you can test the PSU w/o the mobo by jumping the green wire (pin 16) and any black wire on the 24 pin ATX connector. Should fire up the fans and whatnot. If it doesn't your PSU is deadz0r.

Thats the funny thing. Fans all come on, bottom LED's on my RAM come on, Kuhler starts pumping and fans work around Idle speeds, yet no post. I didn't OC it hard enough to do this much damage. Never let the temps get above 30C. PSU should have handled that, I think. Is a Antec 650W Truepower II too weak to handle this and a Single GTX 460 SE?

The only thing I can think of is that 4-Pin power plug felt like it was loose when I went to plug it back in earlier... GOD! I don't want to have to pull this motherboard out of this thing. Maybe I bumped the pump and it's not seated properly. I really need another PSU and at least DDR3 1036 RAM to test things with. The only spare PSU I have only has SATA plugs, and no PCI-E 6Pins. *Pulls hair out*

Alright so I need someone to please assess my needs here, and tell me honestly if the 920 is going to cut it as a cooler for me.

Room temp: 28C
Folding: SMP & GPU (100% load on both CPU and GPU)
Setup: Q9300 @ 3.1 (Big Typhoon & TT Smart Case Fan II) and a Galaxy GTX 460 1GB @ 820/2000 (stock cooling)
Temps: CPU 60C (almost silent) & GPU 60C (loud)

So I figured I could maybe take some heat out of the case since the BT just blows it straight thru the heatsink and onto the baseplate, mobo and RAM by installing a AIO water cooler - the Antec 920 - and it might reduce the temp of the GPU as well since the case should be theoretically circulating one less source of heat by blowing all CPU heat thru a rad and out the back of the case. Instead...

Antec OEM fans P/P as exhaust..
Temps: CPU 65C (loud) & GPU 64C (loud)

Well ain't that a... maybe I need to change it to intake on the 920 and add another top exhaust fan...

Antec OEM fans P/P as intake..
Temps: CPU 67C (loud) & GPU 67C (loud)

gah!!!

So what do I do? Throw a universal water block on the GPU and use that with the 920 and put a CM 212 P/P on the CPU aimed out the top vent of my case? Or just let everything run hotter and turn the fan profiles up a few notches? I'm really trying to keep everything in the mid-60s at full load and as quiet as possible. Is the 920 just not the solution for me?
post #1060 of 6063
personally, What I did with my Antec Kuhler 920 was think realisticly. settled for roughly 33C idle temps on my CPU, (which is fine for a AMD CPU), and just adjusted the fans to keep it within -/+5C, so that the fans would not be loud constanly running on Extreme.

As for your setup, I do not know the average temps it runs, but if you gave us, say, what the temps are after running on Extreme for 30 mins, then silent for 30 min, both at idle, then I could tell you if it was practical to quiet it down with a custom fan setting.

Bah, who am I kidding, I still dun know what happened to MY computer, let alone what someone elses will do. Best thing to do is to run it a while, As a Exhaust, (cause appearantly it's cooler in your case that way), set some time aside to write down info, say every 5 mins, then go from there. There is NEVER a just plug it in and whala! your setups is cooler. you have to adjust things to YOUR needs. Everyones computer runs different than the next persons. You can't just buy the exact same setup as someone pusing high benchmarks and expect to plug it in the exact way they did, and get the same numbers. you'll crash!
