    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have no ideal why I bought the thing in the first place. It is really cramped up.

    tell me about it. It came out better then I expected. I also changed out the top blue led Radimax fans with a couple red led Sickle flows I had and the front fan and red fans with some non led fans.

    That Raidmax case is indeed rather terrible--I'm glad that you have managed to eliminate it :D

    Is that a HD7770 in there? If so, do you have any idea what sort of PPD it does for FAH?

    HD 7770s get around 20KPPD if I recall.

    Yes that is one of the 2 7770's I have. The other is sitting on top of my desk. I have no ideal what ppd they would get in F@H.

    Not really a 'Farm', per se. But more of a small backyard garden. ;)

    It was a special flash setting. The screen is not that reflective, but with a slow flash it picks up the reflection, then flashes to light the rest of the computer.

    I knew what I was doing and wanted the reflection of the beautiful OCT. day that is not so regular around these parts.

    Truth is, I shoulda cleaned the screen!! LOL.

    Here's what the 3770k system looks like:
    [​IMG]
    Only fans are the one in the PSU and the one in the back, so it's nearly silent. Much better than the earlier rattling. Spec are:
    Biostar P67 board
    i7-3770k
    1x4GB Crucial DDR3
    Thermaltake Toughpower 700w (old)
    500GB HDD (Seagate, maybe?)
    Cooler Master Hyper 212+ (fanless)
    Antec Sonata

    Runs Linux Mint 15 and does a pretty good job of crunching :toast:

    So you can run it with passive CPU cooling? Cool!

    What kind of temps with the 212 and no fan?

    Just out in the open (sitting on a cardboard box) the CPU got up to about 80-85C with no fan, and I decided that was a bit hot for sustained use. But it seems that with the airflow from the rear fan (an Antec Tricool, which I have set on medium speed) it's sufficient. Running WCG, the fins of the heatsink get a bit warm, but not badly so, and the CPU temp tops out at 60-65c (upper 50s C at night). At some point I'll create a duct to direct the airflow from the back fan through the HSF better, but it hasn't yet been necessary, so it's not a high priority.

    That's a long-winded way of saying kind-of :p

    EDIT:
    Rooms in the mid-70s right now, here's what I'm getting:

    Make a duct that only has a bottom, as to not block the PSU fan.

    That's not a bad idea. Although there's actually more space between the top of the HSF & the PSU than you can easily see--about an inch. And given the power draw of the system, I'm pretty sure that it would work just fine even if the PSu got a bit less air. But I shall experiment at some point :toast:
    Was it in a case with airflow? What temps did it run at?

    I ran my 2500k stock passive for abit once. The cooler is a gelid tranquillo rev2, but I used it without a fan. Ran about 80c.

    Yeah, that's hotter than I'm willing to deal with if it's avoidable. That's why I had the fan back on the HSF when it was running caseless. But mid-60s C is entirely fine IMO :toast:

    Cant get a good picture of this in action but it does put out some a lot of ppd.

    My 2500k is alone on this table for now. It will have a buddy soon enough.

    Showing the fans that cool the vrms just for safe measure.

    Sexy! A completely unnecessary 38mm fan because I thought it was cool.

    How loud is that fan? My 3930k has a 38mm thick 120mm fan out of a Sun workstation that sounds like a tornado at full blast (and is actually powerful enough to push itself across the desk), but it sure does move a lot of air :toast:

    I would consider it loud, but with a non annoying low tone. About as loud as a yate loon medium if you have heard one. This one only pushes about 80cfm. I am thinking about going back to the stock fan for that heatsink, which just so happens to be on sale tonight on newegg for $15, for silence.

    I think it was in the low 50s, 51 maybe. The case had the PSU mounted on top and a 92mm exhaust at the back.

    Newest addition to the farm, Peenemunde. Specs:
    Core i7-920 @ stock for now
    OEM Gateway board
    2x2GB G.SKILL RIPJAWS RAM
    Antec Truepower Trio 550w PSU
    Old Antec case
    320GB Hitachi drive
    nVidia Quadro FX1800 (it outputs a display, which is all I need). It's more or less equal to a downclocked 9600GT with more RAM (768MB on a 192bit bus).
    Pics!

    Where did you get that case for kiev. I remember seeing very similar kinds for bitcoin rigs. They were home made.
