    I have heard on h50 they can drop temps 2-3C because they eliminate the dead spot in the center of the fan cooling that part of the rad. When your running 38mm fan's this center spot is VERY large.

    Hmm....2-3 degrees would be pretty sweet.

    I would need 4 shrouds for my radiator, and (maybe) two for my H50. FrozenCPU sells them at 10 bucks apiece which is way too expensive.

    What are you thinking about for fan's? Ultra kaze 3k rpm are the cheaper one's i would say, and you can make a shroud out of some old 120mm fan's. Beware though, it will get VERY bulky with 2 38mm fan's and 2 25mm shrouds and the width of the h50.

    Yeah...shrouds on both sides of the H50 might not be possible. I might just do one side, but then it won't be as effective.

    Picked up a 8800GT. Thats anywhere between 6-9k PPD for 35 bucks. I'd say thats a good deal.

    Nice man. 35 bucks is definitely a steal! I wouldn't say 6-9k ppd though. Id say probably 5-6k.

    Well, the 800GS gives me 4k on stock. I'm sure, OC'ed the 8800GT could manage 6-7...dunno. We'll see...

    My gts's give me about 5.8k on any work units besides 450's and 454(i think thats the bad ones?). I have my shaders OC'd to 1844 as well.

    I really depends on a couple of things, 1 how much space you have to work with, as shrouds can be counterproductive if it means your forced to place the fans in a p[lace where your restricting air flow. Also it depends on the density of the fins in your radiator, as shrouds can mess with air pressure.

    From everything i've read adding shrouds to a h50 helps it. I've read pages and pages and pages in every h50 thread on every forum i think :laugh:

    I'm not sure about the density of the fins in the XSPS Rasa radiator. I'll try looking up some forums. I'm sure someone's tried it.

    Yes fan shrouds make your fans more effective, they take away the dead spots fans seem to have like in the middle of the fan or along the outside edges.

    rads

    @xbonez these are for my next build the blue rad will be used to cool just the 1090 BE only, The other 3 fan rad will be used only for the 2 X 480's. Got them cheap and both of them are dual pass extreme rads fin spacing is close, which is key in cooling the water faster.

    Were you planning on adding shrouds to your rs 240 as well?

    I was, if I can get them for a reasonable price. I'll try it without first. If my OC is limited by temps, I might.

    Sold my current folding rig (s775 combo), and will have to ship it out tomorrow. So no major folding on my end until I have the bigadv rig setup.

    I sold the processor, HSF, motherboard and 2 sticks of RAM for 170 + shipping. The RAM cost me 20, and I got everything from you for 50, so I broke even.

    I just had the weirdest problem ever:

    I logged into my folding rig and the display was completely messed up. the colors were off, the display was washed out etc. Did a cold restart and everything's working fine now. Dunno if it was a temperature thing Since I restarted, I couldn't check the temp.

    Oh wow...yeah. It most probably temps. I just restarted folding on the 470, and within two min, the temps were at 86 degrees. I turned the fan up to 70%, and I'll drop the clocks and voltage on it. Better to have it folding slightly slower than not folding at all.

    Jeesh! Is that the asus one with stock cooler? You must be too used to your other one :p That's great that you broke even on it though! Have you already taken the folding rig apart and put the other 470 in your rig?

    Yeah, it is the Asus one with stock cooler. I dropped the voltages to stock and increased the fan to 75% from 50%. Its still running at 700Mhz and temps on load are less than 75. This should be fine now.

    I haven't taken apart the folding rig yet. I'll let it run for a few more hours before taking it down.
