    I'm looking for an air cooling solution to help take my DFI P45 JR T2RS to the next level. :pimp:



    [​IMG]



    I'm thinking either adding a little 40mm fan to the stock NB heat sink or replacing it with a better one.

    Thing is I am limited on space.


    I can add taller and better copper heat sink to my SB which is burried by my Xfire HD4770s. I have about 5mm space left on the SB for a taller heat sink.


    Pleast throw some ideas out for me.

    To be honest, a 40mm fan will do the job good enough.


    But...I cant help but say Xiggy would look nice, even some Enzotech bits on that board would take it to a "new level" in looks. :toast:

    agreed, getting a fan in there would drop temps, depending on the case ambients. I think the Porter would do better, even passively, but the space in there has me worried it wont fit.

    oh I see in the H50 thread you are on water now?

    I say get the porter for the NB and get an enzo SB cooler (if you even need it, my DFI SB's are bearly warm)

    I dont think the Porter will fit.


    Enzotech sinks and 40mm fan is the way forward. :)



    Edit: Maybe this will work for your NB:

    That may not fit. The Porter has and angle to it that may be able to fit between the two other heatsinks. I would need a better picture of the gap between the gpu hsf and the cpu hsf though. A good thing about the porter too is a fan isn't needed at all. The heatpipe contact surface sits directly on top of the NB chip and works amazingly well.

    if you are using the H50 system flip the porter over.

    OK for the SB I'm going with the Enzotech SLF-1.

    http://www.enzotechnology.com/slf_1.htm#

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm still not sure what to use for the NB.

    I like the TR NB heatsink but I'm not sure if it will fit or will be best.

    Bump to show the space available with the Corsair H50 heatsink.

    Plenty of room for the porter or the Thermalright. The Tr may give you a bit more offset and get around that GPU fan better.

    Looks sweet! I just saw this thread and having owned one of those boards, I wanted to say that I think you made the right decision. That little skimpy cooler they included had to go!

    Which mosfet heat sink did you use?

    The Mosfet heat sink on the DFI P45 JR is built great. Even has a heat transfer pipe going to the NB that the new NB TR heat sink will be able to help cool.

    Post some pics of your set up.

    by the way...
    yours look good... nice job...

    DK P45 T2RS PLUS

    cpu: v8
    nb: HR-05 SLI/IFX with 80mm fan
    mosfet: HR-09 U TYPE 3
    mosfet: HR-09 S TYPE 3 (parallel to psu)

    hard to see the mosfet's in that shot..
    they fit in perfect right under the v8...

    in the process of looking for a media.case...
    something that will fit the v8..
