Well, I know that Buck pays for his own electricity, but I'm at school right now so electricity is included with the dorm bill. That's what keeps the farm going :toast:
HAHA, true. I was almost thinking about parking my ass in front of the local library to download some big files and tapping an extension cord from their circuit to our feed truck so I could get free folding for an hour and a half :p

But then they locked all the outdoor outlets :wtf:

And that doesn't matter anyway considering my family's internet is unlimited 5Mbps data :roll:

However, I saw in one of his snapshots of the 2nd system he had the two back CPU coolers running on top of each other. I would have oriented the second cooler opposite of how he did it and put a small divider in between to direct the air upwards. It might reduce airflow a little, but it's probably better than cooling the CPU with already warmed air.
The difference is only 3 degrees Celsius between the two "back to back" cores. The CM Hyper 212's do a great job cooling, so the 3 degrees is small potatoes. Biggest problem is keeping the CM sleeve bearing fans going. Seem to be losing 1-2 every month. Replacing them with ball bearing fans to eliminate this problem in the future.:rockout:

Ill second his admiration and comend your drive and effort, rock on buck.
Probably just a coincidence of same time purchasing that you're going through a few fans I tend to buy cheap (8 $ per) and yearly then burn through my old ones which I don't throw and work I clean them and use my select seconds on the various errant family pcs I remove creatures from.

I'm surprised about the fan issues. Obviously I'm not using the Hyper212s on my 4P, but the Noctua fans have worked great...although I suppose that they're probably higher-end fans...

I would hope they are better quality. I bought the Hyper 212's for $25 each and this is expected, but I know the Noctua's are $60+ coolers. Are the Noctua's modded to fit the the G34 socket? ....Looks like the make a NH-U9DO A3 that fits G34...Hmmm

I would assume so, but TBH I'm not sure. When I bought the 4P system it came with everything set up to work properly (just needed to put things back together)--and they just screw into the backplate behind the board. One of them the screw broke for, but the retention bracket looks pretty much like what I would expect (there's a metal plate like thing that sticks out from the base of the cooler and the screws go through it).

How loud are the Hypers? The Noctuas at least are all but silent.

With 4 of them spinning at 2000rpm, it' gets a little noisy. Plus I have 3 fans aimed at the VRM's on the board. Let's say there is no lack of air movement. Got them set up in the spare bedroom, so no issues there. God help anyone who tries to sleep in that bedroom.:roll:

EDIT: Need pics of your 6128 rig. Have not seen it yet.

Yeah, I've seen some rave reviews about the CM Hypers, and I recommended them to a friend who was doing an extreme overhaul on his PC, mainly scrapping his ancient mobo and getting an i7-4770 overclocked. The cooler was probably overkill, but you know how it is for cooling, nothing is ever never too much :laugh:

And if you want a real story about sleeve bearings, I had one fail in 2 hrs on some new-old stock cooler that I put on an AMD Sempron. Didn't really expect it to last long, but 2Hrs was crazy.

Buck, did you consider Nidec Servo Gentle Typhoons? In the US they are probably branded as Scythe fans (yes, they are full ball bearing fans).

They look like a pretty good deal. Newegg is out, so good ol' Amazon to the rescue. Gonna pick up 4 by the end of the week. At 21db, they should be nice and quiet.

Check the fans available at the Swiftech website- iirc they have a similar style for 1/2 that price ;)

P.S> You try can always try sneekypete too :toast:

*EDIT- see link:
http://www.swiftech.com/accessories-2.aspx
The Swiftech/Titan's use a Z-axis bearing(modified sleeve bearing), so I will prob stay away from them. I may try to find some lower RPM Delta's for their bulletproof design.

These are the results from a test of the 1850 rpm version of that fan, with the noise measured at 10cm (~4 inches) away from the fan: http://us.hardware.info/productinfo/57030/scythe-gentle-typhoon-120mm-1850rpm#tab:testresults

So they will not be as quiet as that Amzon page states. Anything less than 30dB is usually pointing to a fan being underspecced. ;)
