cool how much you want for the as5
is that question for me?
I found this an interesting topic, so i guess i'll post my question concerning cooling. I have a Gigabyte poseidon case, 1x120 intake, 1x120 exhaust, motherboard has a small low cfm fan taking heat directly off the processor and exhausting it where the parallel port normally is... also i have a dual fan PSU exhausting.... i hear you mentioning negetive and positive pressure ( just in the sense of more in than out or vis versa) this case also has a decent sized metal mesh ventilating side panel, would it be better in the end then to replace that with a glass side, i was just curios, cause the case did come with a glass side to replace the mesh if you want to, and if that would help cooling ever so slightly, i suppose i'd do it.
yes it is
you know, you can get a 3.5g tube of as5 for $6 of newegg........
and it lasts forever. you don't need much.
lol lazy on my end oh well i guess i take it back then i just didnt feel like shopping
I just run my case open. I have one 80mm exhaust fan, one 80mm fan that blows in, intel heatsink & fan on processor and heatsink and fan on the GPU. RAM has heatsinks, notrhbridge has a big heatsink on it.
I don't have AS5 for sale, even if i do it will probabily cost you more the freight and taxes, where do you live?
sweet case btw
hehe i think its cheaper to do newegg.......
pt lives in portugal.
yeah ill just goes to fry's when i go to get a new hsf for the intel im getting
yeah. frys is good. but they're a bit more expensive. i think....
ehh it is cheaper than shipping and fry's sales are always nice like today i could show get a s am2 x2 3800 and ecs mobo for $180
I did that for a while back in the day, but then read a few things that changed my mind. Not only does an open case encourage the entry of foreign matter, but it won't actually keep you case as cool. It's like standing outside on an average day, but with no breeze. Enter the breeze: ah, it wisks away heat, both from cases (cooling) and people (windchill). So an open case, and therefore a lack of airflow, will be less efficient than a closed case that in intaking and exhausting air properly.
I keep a fan blowing in it.
agreed. although, if the side is open, with a very large-ish box fan blowing in.....hehe.
btw, finished all the mods. dropped temps about 10C. very happy with the results.
make sure you route all your cables well that alone droped my temps a lot almost 5C from 29C-30C to 24C just cuase i tucked some wires out of the way
yep, everything sleved and stealthed.
idle temp today is 32C. gfx idling at 38C. compared to 45C, 50C before. and its hot out today, and i don't have a/c.
lol i just tried to oc to 2.48 that didnt work and it heated my case up what an ass stupid processor
i recon "blow more in" is the best way.. only cos u can blow it directly at some things.. its more aimable.. he he
but as a general rule.. in at the bottom front.. out at the top rear.. and what come in has to find a way out.. it needs to be "balanced"..
but a big extra "blow more in" fan stuck on the side blowing directly at my toasty1900xtx grfx card is what i have as well as the front and rear fans..
Front - Always IN (over HDD's should be)
Side - Always IN (for GFX and CPU)
Rear - OUT
PSU - OUT
If you still don't get enough air, buy a PCI slot blower. Bottom line is this:
Find what ambient temp is INSIDE your case. Then find out your CPU and GFX. Take the difference for each. That delta will be VERY consistent for any ambient case temp...
Case - 30C, GFX - 40C, CPU 38C.... Your CPU will always hover around 8C higher than your case (delta) and the GFX will hover around 10C (delta = 10).
We spend 40-50 engineering hours trying to figure out how to cool a Prescott 3.2 (800MHz bus) in a micro ATX case with a 1U heatsink/fan. The best option was to add a 120mm AC (120V) fan. It keeps the case 1C or 2C above room temp, and the prescott idles around 50C. I hate P4...they run sooo hot.
case sit 28C idle maybe gets up to 33C load cpu sits at 45C idle and 55C load (o/c'd @2.44ghz) w/ a stock amd hsf
hehe 33C idle, 45-50C load......
da da da da dum! i'm lovin it!
