    Oh those are the stock antec 1200 fans, I don't see the need to replace them at all they work beautifully.

    My rig has no good GPU now since its in RMA. Yesterday I did major changes to the cable management and I installed some cold-cathode lights and this time stacked 4 of them.. 1 blue 1 red, 2 uv.
    Also I put the switches on the case rear.

    And on the backside I did some good job making the transformators look somehow clean.

    Just thought I'd post my current setup as I'm moving into my new house next week.

    I've ditched the watercooling (and its for sale) and I'm looking at getting a new case. The Lian Li PC-7s look nice. But I want just a plain window, not the ones with the horrible huge fan that make it look like a budget case imo. Cable management isn't great as I've been messing with a few parts and I'm going to rebuild it soon anyway. And yes, stock cooler for now. Looking at a xigamatek cooler or something along those lines

    Its a bit messy, but was only a temp solution in teh garage while I was at home. Running 3 monitors on my main rig (x2 19" 1440x900 and x1 1920x1080 23", not in eyefinity) and my Acer Aspire One Netbook is been used as a jukebox for now.

    Nice rig, Thorno. Love that eyefinity action!!! Does that stock heatsink cope with the heat? I'm also thinking on getting another hd5850 for my rig for some crossfire goodness. :rockout:

    Not bad for a stock heatpipe cooler. I really wanted to OC my cpu well above 3.5 ghz, but my Mobo seems to be the culprit. My H50 can handle the temps even if I'm using 1.5v for the CPU voltage and OC'ing at 3.5. My temps at idle is at 24 deg C. At load, about 35 while playing BF:BC2. Cool temps but the mobo's limiting my OC potential......Well I'm just going to wait for the next AMD platform (Bulldozer+whatever chipset)....:)

    No, that temperature is not normal.
    I have them without OC and automatic fans, are playing between 75 - 85C º. And without the fans lit side of the box.
    The fans never have reached 100%.
    And room temperature 24 - 26c º.
    This may not be the problem, I use the application of Nvidia (Nvidia System monitor) goes well and fits the drivers (Display Control Panel).
    I hope to help.
    A greeting.
    Lionheart says thanks.

    If it is true I would have to look at me a better cooling.
    But for now I see no need and that keeps me acceptable temperatures. But something better to look in the future.
    These are the temperatures of the 480's and the 980x to 4GHz. For every day.
    Temperature 25-26c º.
    A greeting :toast:

    I had a couple of those AMD stock HP HSF's they aren't to bad for what they are aslong as you use good TIM (not P_O_S) had mine on an old Athlon64 x2 4800+ skt939 @2.8GHz and it sat at around 45~50c at full load

    Those temps look really good:toast:
    What are your load temps?
    I would have to say that if your load temps stay cool as well, then change nothing:)

    that is not bad and near to be good : you should use "Tubing Springs/Sleeves" in here :

    [​IMG]

    Ok i did a trade and got an H50 for my custom water loop i posted about 2 weeks ago. I had to do some hack job cutting to the back of the case but finally got it to fit really good. Only thing that doesnt fit good atm is the top of the case but i am going to cut on it alittle this afternoon or one of my days im off work. This H50 does good but not as good as the custom loop, but it beats stock cooling LOL. At stock clocks it idled at 21 deg cel and loaded at 32 deg cel for 1 hour on OCCT and IBT. I then tested it as unlocked to an x4 and OCed to 3.2ghz and it idled around 36 and loaded around 53 deg cel with ITB and OCCT. Its about 3-4 deg hotter than the custom loop i had but this little thing will fit in the case really good. Ive got the H50s rad in a push/pull with two coolermaster UV fans at 53CFM. Later on i might up it to two 100+CFM fans to see if temps go down further. also i will OC further tonight to see what more i can get out of it. here is some before and after shots. I followed along as best as i could on how Erocker setup his H50 in his Bgears case.
