28th Installed 12GB's of Ram.
28th Broken NZXT Fan Controller.
Broke H50 ---
Well atleast my pc is booting with a £7 GPU :haha:
Looking Good. Have you used that cooler before? It look's like the ticket.
I took a look at a review of the cooler on PC Perspective, a video really and I'm pretty impressed with the capabilities of it.
Ouch, that case doesn't look very cable managment friendly...
Not gunna go with an nvidia card for the sli mobo? Should be a nice set up either way
the H50 blows in?
wouldn't it be better if it blew out?
The NZXT Lexa S would've cheaper, nicer, and easier on the cable management (: .
And yeah put that Corsair H50 on the out . ( i sorta want one one)
I have experimented with the H50 on my rig during my initial build and I can attest that...
- pulling fresh air into the case across the rad cools the CPU more effectively (by about 3 degrees for me)
- pulling air into the case only raises my case temp by 1 C
- pushing air out of the case does not really lower case temps by much, about 1 C as I said
- pushing warmer air across the rad DOES reduce the result in higher CPU temps
The complaints about pulling air into the case are grossly overstated. Yes, I admit that at first I thought it would be better to blow out of the case, but after testing it in my CM 690 case, I have concluded that Corsair's standard install is perferable. However, it doesn't hurt that I have 2 120mm fans at the top of my case and another side panel 120mm pulling fresh air in as well.
oh wow. I also thought it was better to suck the warm air out, but I guess when you dont use air cooling, it doesnt really matter. Switching my fans around to blow air in lowered my prime 95 temps like 4-5 degrees. Crazy! thanks for clearing that up!
Updated the thread with some more pictures :thumb:
Asso i brought a Corsair 800D case i cant stand this one aRR :angry2:
