Oh, i'd love to... but the DA750w would be pushing it... lol. Also, i'd HAVE to use the water loop (thats sat on my shelf) then. 3x EK Nickel ??
it "should" be able to do it though, they use 15-180w each, thats 450-540w in total, and then 125 from cpu, thats 675 max, and a little extra, then youre at 700w
Only got 4x 6pin + 1x 8pin.
I don't like the scaling though, i'd rather just stick with two and be damn happy
I'm not a fan of red myself, but the HD5850 and Crosshair IV Formula look great together, very nice
I wasn't before, i used to love the idea of a complete Black and White build. But after this, im rather happy.
Can't wait to get my desk (V3) started so i can get this baby back in it
Can't wait till you start Desk v3
speaking of red and black
a little dusty eh
I really want to get:
Extensions, and braid them black or black/red.
you can buy the nzxt ones, but......yeah........they look good and thats about it
they use black wires under the black sleeving, red wires under the red sleeving, and white wires under the white sleeving, so they dont have to use suchs good quality sleeving
and besides, its a challenge to do it yourself
i will NOT do another psu again, will get extensions next time
very tidy, what are the temps and noises like coming from the top 5870? it doesn't look like it has much room to breathe.
Running at 35 and under load 49 but the 200mm side fan helps a hell of a lot and thanx for the comment mate. Being dreading building this but it went with no hiccups.
why were you dreading the build? I think you did a great job, looks very clean and tidy.
the only thing I wouldhave done different is look into a mATX case, as you have lots of empty space now, however that makes for good airflow allowance.
to a job well done
Thanks for the kind words mate much appreciated.
New cooler again. Bottom fans, new 24 pin.
nice, hows the h70 for you?
I really love the CPU cooler myself
Nice set-up MP and Kov.
Not great. Quieter than my venom push pull for the same perf. Absolutely nothing can keep my i7 cool at this speed it seems. The H50 fails, all idle at the same temp. My fan arrangement for the H50/70 is one high speed on exhaust. Dual fans makes it loud enough to defeat the point of water, intake is a moronic heat dump that's not even an option. Most reviewers didn't even test it. While I've seen these things stay stable at 102c it really bugs me seeing mine up to 95c, even if it is stable. Yes I've tried all sorts of crazy case fan stuff to make sure it isn't from bad ambient or dead air flow, it's not. Re-seating always brings the same temps. All I can figure is it's my chip. Looking around I've seen a lot of people topping out in the 80s, but I see a few always in the 90s. I guess I'm one of those few.
The H70 is designed to pull fresh air in from outside, thats how they keep temps lower Looks like you have it set to pull case air out and exhaust it.
+1 he has it setup backwards
Looks like? I said it. With words, and then explained why.
Mine is cooler working as an intake (7* cooler than as an exhaust), maybe its the fans you swapped for causing the lack of performance?
Also why would reviewers test with a single fan, the H70 is designed to use 2?
Naturally it's cooler working as an intake, and I said that in reference to the the exhaust position, not the fan arrangement.
So, I dont get your stance, you butchered the cooler and didnt install it as per the instructions, and you want to complain about its performance? Or you like it, it just doesnt work as you want it to?
