    LOl. 41? :eek:


    :shadedshu

    Not with Corsair. Or any other OEM, AFAIK.

    sheesh.


    88 is exactly where it should be. 110 for 2000. ;)

    tRC = 41 according to the SPD page but take a look at the memory page and you see 88

    unless tRC isnt the same as tRFC

    Not, it is NOT the same...TRC doesn't exist on DDR3.

    trc is row cycle, trfc is refresh cycle.

    trc = delay between data commands(and hence the B2B tweak for i3/i5/i7, which is back to back CAS delay), trfc=refreshing the data within the IC.

    closest thing that you might use the trc timings for in DDR3 is TFAW.

    What do you mean with the side panel exactly? I'm not sure what part you are referring to on the case, but I see no significant airflow problems on my case since there are 7 fans on the case alone, one on the back, one on the bottom, one on the left side panel, two on the top and two on the front; and that is not including the CPU Cooler and Graphics Cards fans. :D

    On the left side panel you have the fan pulling air from inside the case and throwing the hot air outside, as opposed to having it as an intake fan which is most common for side panel fans.

    Then again, i have actually seen a video with the Fractal Design case where the fan was placed the same direction. So maybe there is some kind of benefit with that case design to have it that way.

    Yeah i could see with his cards it benefiting either way. He has the bottom intake right by his PSU and his cards aren't blower type. I could see if you had a blower type card like my gts's intake would be way better as your throwing cool air in, the card takes that through and pushes it out the rear. Where on his cards his cards just throw the air around, having a exhaust will pull all that hot air from the cards out or having it as a intake would throw cool air at the cards but then eventually it would all heat up in that little chamber.

    Your wrong, the fan is sucking air in, I guess it is just how a fractal design fan appears when compared to other fans. The only issue with my set-up on that side panel is that it's next to my wardrobe so the air it sucks in is a bit limited, but not a problem overall thanks to the other fans I have.

    How my fan system works in that:

    Bottom Fan, Side Panel Fan and Front Fans (2) sucks in the air.

    The Back Fan and Top Fans (2) blow the air out.

    This set-up follows the hot air rising principle.

    For the graphics cards they're each equiped with two fans that blow onto their GPU Heatsink and since they are sucking air in it which matches up well with the bottom fan. I only wished the gap was bigger between my two cards, but it is the flaw graphics card slot design on my motherboard which causes this gap issue so my motherboard is something I might upgrade if something special comes out.

    Nah according to that pic, your side panel fan is blowing air out. Look up top at your cpu HSF and the fan behind it, see the way those fan blades are? Yeah those are exhausting, see the way your side panel fan blades are? Yeah it's exhausting. Flip that fan around and throw some cool air on your cards :)

    I think you might be right, I did that check myself just now as it happens, I guess that needs adjusting, thanks.

    It is fixed. I checked the others, especially the front, and they are all good. :)

    Possibly for my graphics cards, but my motherboard and cpu seems to be near enough the same as before though.

    Just bought a Inwin Iron Clad full size atx. My mid size tower just aint got the room i need these days, pretty happy with the space in the ironclad and my mobo temps are much cooler with the 220mm side fan, Not noisy either.

    Its still a virgin case atm totally unmodded, But im upgrading to skt 1155 sandy bridge in jan-feb time, So the modding will comence after that. :)
