Sort of random pic time.
du you crunch with some of those rigs?
but anyway, nice setup bro
@ AhokZYashA dude i thought my old iCute case was cramped but you take it to a whole new level and rubber bands hold your fans on "dude really" thats worth a x2 rofl and an old slot1 cpu cooler...
I've got 2 or 3 of them sitting round thought i might mod them so it ends up with 2 or 3 fans in the same sized piece and use them to cool my RAM as the shroud fits perfectly over the outer edges of dimm 1 and dimm 4
hey DON check out the new 3dmark06 result i just posted i took the gpu upto 920 and cranked up the cpu to 3333
@ Hockster doesn't it just bug the bejeeba's out of you when computer desk makers just don't make enough room on the keyboard shelf for the mouse aswell it's like they just don't measure anything
I used to, but the $100 a month addition to the power bill just got too expensive.
my chipset was too hot..
so i think its time to mod something, and i found a slot 1 pentium 3 cooler lying around.
and think why not..
so, it helps with my temps a bit.
and those fans was dead silent at 5V
but the slot 1 fan was loud.. @ 3800rpm
DFI board brought back to life! it is now my HTPC!
MORE INFO HERE
what happend to it?
its all in his other thread...I assume the "more info here" link after the last pic
it happens, just trying to keep that bit there and the pics rolling here
yea it was a long story that i wassnt going to junk another thread up telling so i posted a link to the thread i started about it!
Tim you need some UV going in there
I actually did use one of those to cool my ram for a while but now I just have a 120 blowing across my mobo (plus the 250 on the side). In fact, just the other day I was thinking about modding it the same way as you Athlonite
tell me, is i missing something or are you fans backwards??
I was wondering the same thing but forgot to mention it. Maybe he likes to turn his case upside-down?
I think it's on its side.
Even still, that configuration looks inefficient and counter-intuitive. If it were upside down, it would make slightly more sense. Not trying to bash brandon, just really curious if there's a good reason for it that we might be missing. If not, then I hope he will consider it constructive criticism.
Heh, reminds me when I first built my PC and had the cpu cooler backwards. Never noticed 'til I went to a lan and everybody said "wtf?"
EDIT: I took some new pics the other day, I'll see about getting some up here soon.
lol that is the worst, getting caught in public with screwups like that, kinda embarrassing as i've been there myself. Went to my first lan with no mousepad(epic fail), then i had a fan backwards(front intake of course), and worst of all entered my case into the casemod contest and bragged about how epic my antec 900 was, and when the reviewers came to take a look at it, all i got was... WTF lol.
I knew a guy that went to a LAN without a PC... Rest assured, yours is not the mother of all
What, did he show up with a Mac or something?
No, he really had to go home to get his PC.
Oh, and I went to Campzone (2 weeks outdoor LAN) without shoes once.
The two top fans bring fresh air in and push it through the top of the heatsink and the fan on the back of the heatsink contiunues to push the air down to the video card and the fan i the back pulls air out and also the side panel fan pulls the air out so it comes in the top then goes out the back and side. i can take a screen shot of prime95 or linx at full load and show you the temps. they do not get above 50 deg and it idles at 29-30.
@brandonwh64 the way you've got those top fans is counter intuitive to what the hot air in your pc wants to do, which is go UP ^^^^^ as heat rises you'd find flippin them top 2 fans over to exhaust hot air and makein the side fan an intake to bring in cool air would keep things much cooler inside the box
take my SS RV02 it's got 3x 180mm fans in the bottom blowing straight up and an 90 degree rotated mobo heat rises and SS made sure with the design of the case it has the easiest path to folow
air 'wants' to go up... but thats only in a static room with no airflow (think cigarette smoke)... as soon as you have as much airflow as him, it really doesnt matter anymore
