My System Specs

Default New case! -HAFX + a whole ton of red

Hey guys, just upgraded from my 912 to a HafX!

Also got :

Coolit Eco 240MM w/ 4x SS Air Pen
3x CM 200MM Megaflow
1x Xel 140MM RED LED Fan

My current specs as of now:

i7 970 @ 4.55ghz
12GB OCZ-Obsidian DDR3-1600 @ 1699
Sabertooth X58
2x 6950 flashed to 6970's @ 900/1450
Soundblaster Titanium HD XFI
Intel Gigabit LAN adaptor
Corsair F90
WD 2TB Green x2
WD 1TB Black
Seagate 1TB
Corsair TX850 (need..AX1200 :()

I got rid of a lot of my harddrives, seeing as how I really dont use a lot of space anymore.

ANYWAYS good stuff ----V


How it looked before xfering everything over.


The C240 with 4 SS Air Pens! I chose these fans because they have superior directional flow, instead of HOLYJESUSWHEREISTHISAIRGOING, IDONTKNOW, ANYWHEREBUTTHERADIATOR!


2 big ass fans mounted, with the radiator on the bottom (yes you can run both if you wish)

Test fitting everything...had to move the videocard back to the 2nd PCI-E, my Xfire bridge wasnt long enough :(







In the Pic : Asus 23" (i think its VE23R?...), Samsung 2343, Corsair HS1 Headset, Corsair SP2500, Steelseries 6Gv2, Steelseries Xai, Steelseries 4H, xbox360 hooked up to the acer monitor :)

Enjoy!

Really? direction of airflow means 0 in a radiator. This is assuming you, you know.. have them all going in the same direction of course. Unless of course you mount the fans 4 inches away from the rad, which no one does.
It's screwed directly on it.. the fans you're looking for need good static pressure, not directional air flow.
I would however, like to test those fans versus some other manufacturers high static offerings. Hmm.. I might just do that.

the gentle typhoons were out...so were the ultra kaze's, the CM R4's had terrible static pressure, these were the next best thing without having my computer sound like a windstorm! i'll be replacing them when my desired fans come in :)

What kind of temps are you getting with that C240? Decent build though!

On my old NH-U12P SE2, I was getting an average 85c on all 6 cores, now I average about 70-72c. I have the thing 4.66ghz @ 1.3vcore

The corsair speakers are nice, theyre great for their size, but it lacks a quite a bit of treble, mucho amounts of mid and bass though :P
