i would be concerned too much with pump sound if i seen that the temps were good - now - if its something i didnt tighten down enough - then who knows - it may have been a good unit -
since telling me you dont see the sound level in numbers anymore - - thats not a issue - i though that was something -

i find out tomorrow how good it was screwed down -

i am getting a new one on tuesday - so will use the new one on my new build - it should fit with the 1155 socket intel right ?

Is the pump running at full rpm?

The silverstone point of view makes sense. How many cars have the radiator near the fire wall behind the engine? They always have the radiator in front of the engine where it gets the outside air first.

Although the difference with a car, si that there is a CONSTANT stream of cold air hitting the rad as you drive, ambient temperature is often lower than inside the car (depends on where you live of course)

i didnt OC - - first off - its my temps were always high - and that could have been the cooler - for what ever reason - bad unit - didnt mount it tight enough etc, - at this point - dosnt matter anymore -
i got a new cooler coming on tuesday - i am taking the board - chip and memory out tomorrow -- shipping it all back - and start fresh with new parts -
since i am back to square one - i have to decide which board to use - memory etc, - most likely going with the intel this time i7 3770k
would you have any suggestions on - a good decent stable Board for the i7 - and 16 gig kit ? two sticks -
the parts i am sending back are the AMD A10 - Gigabyte FM2 UP4 board which looks very cool - but bios seemed iffy - and crucial tracer memory -
i am afraid to try Gigabyte now - unless theres a good unit out for the i7 - was looking at MSI or even intel board -
i dont see much about intel boards - any idea how good they are ? compared to the rest of the brands - ASUS - Gigabyte - MSI etc, -
last the memory - i want something to just work at rated speed when installed - if i have to set it to XMP profile - thats fine - easy to do - but dont want to ticker with the settings just yet - not right away -
i want it stock first to make sure its all working and stable - all this has been stressing me out -- too many issues all at once - and all parts were new - i didnt try to cut corners -- and i ended up this way --
Another question - My PSU is a Corsair TX750 - worked fine before all the time - but now in this case - Corsair 300 - the PSU is on the bottom and the fan is facing down in the case -- i wonder if thats correct - i mean - is the fan pushing air out or pulling air in ?
this was the only way that it fitted in the case - looks correct - - on my old case - it was on top sideways - so the fan was exposed -
now its on the bottom of my Case - Fan is down - you dont see it - just want to double check that its correct that way -
the case will be placed in a Cpu holder under my desk when done -

Check my rig out, I think you'll be building something similar wink.gif!

The earlier version 1.0 of the ChillControl software did show sound level numbers "in db" but they were just a guess based on the fan speed.
(In fact one day I got curious, did some research, and discovered that all the code was doing was dividing the fan speed by 45).
I guess when upgrading the code they decided the approximation was worthless and took out it out of the display.
As far as the pump itself making noise is concerned, mine is so quiet it's hard to tell it runs. Even if it make a bit of sound I wouldn't be concerned. If you got a quiet one too count you blessings - others apparently have ended up with real "grinders".

Correct me if I'm wrong but last time I asked it, it has to do with the pin configuration of the fans - and thus why the software can't give you db noise levels

i will check it when i remove it tomorrow - i will use a screw driver just to see if i am able to tighten it more - if so - then its a good guess it wasnt making good contact - if its tight already - then most likely bad unit -
still sound coming from the pump - not loud but i can hear it when fans on low - fans on high - i dont hear the pump - not using stock fans - cougar hp fans - so not screaming loud when on high
i am looking over some intel boards - hoping to pick one - to make a good match with the i7 -

Definitely the problem. That'#s where your high temps come in.
As for pump - it should be running at 3k speed

I don't understand how you go from a budget A10 build to a full blown i7 with Ivy build! I probably would have skipped the A10 altogether if I had the money for an Ivy Bridge!! Whats the budget for a board?

ASRock has the Z77 Extreme 4 and Extreme 6 that are pretty good.

ASUS has the quite a few, I like that P8Z77-V Pro but the plain V (non-Pro) is good too. They have some lower and higher quality models on this line too that are also nice.

GIGABYTE has a few good ones, the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H is very popular with overclockers, the UD3H is pretty good too at about $30 less.

If you go MSI you really need the Z77A-GD65 or GD80 otherwise forget about it.

There's quite a few good boards out there but the ones above I have either used and approved or have read a ton about them or heard love stories from friends about them and would recommend them to anyone. These boards listed are all moderately priced at $130-$200. There are some better boards but they cost more. Unless your trying to do extreme overclocking or need 3x/4x GPUs the ones above are great.

Ooh. Just seen this club. tongue.gif

I have a 620 on my stock 3570k, with two Gentle Typhoon AP-14's in Push/Pull. Performs well in my hot, cramped case.

Excuse the semi-messy cabling. Re-arranged the hard drives now and cleaned it up, and added two more sticks of RAM since they were taken.

I much prefer the tubing on these to the ones on the Corsair units.

^Sexy case, sexy build - but very cramped!
post #2768 of 6068
The pump runs about 2900 - maybe 2920 - etc, - i never seen it hit 3000 -

about the fin pin - i have no idea - i do notice the Cpu Header on the board is 3 pin - which is strange - the other fan headers on my board are 4 pin -

all i did was plug in the wire from the 920 into the Cpu fan header on my board - you can only push it in one way i believe


i have the fans in a push - pull -

Hi - yeah well its my fault since i been out of this scene for a long time - i had a AMD since DFI landparty days - and just figured i stay with AMD - when the A10 came out- i figured ok - not bad etc, and just went with that - i was thinking a simple upgrade but ended up starting all new anyway except for my PSU - should have to known then to look at other parts just to compare -

i never looked over any intel till now - budget wasnt the issue - just didnt look at others and went with the A10 - everything is coming out tonight - and i will check those pump screws -

any ideas about the intel boards ? i guess i am at the 200 range with intel boards - so i like to stick to that range for the board -- or under if i can - this build turned out more than i expected - at this point
i dont care - just want it to work and work fast -

so i should check those models you posted - any thing else - other models - i am not looking to add video cards - and if i did down the line - i would add just one good card -

any more suggestions - ideas that can help me get this going - just post - i will look into all the models etc, - its getting too confusing for me to decide - since i dont know much with intel at all - boards and always been with AMD - but even that - i havnt been doing this for the past 6 years - i havnt kept up to speed with latest items -
post #2770 of 6068
The ASRock Z77 Extreme6, ASUS P8Z77-V PRO, and Gigabyte Z77-UD5H are my top three picks. I don't know much about Intel brand boards but the VRM heatsinks look crappy unless you spend $250 but for that money you could get a much better board from other brands.
