I think the idea is that more fans means more airflow. The problem is that one fan will effectively fight the other meaning functionally the same airflow as a single fan with a greater power usage.
Kudos on the insane thought. Points taken away for insanity.
Pressure changes so there is some gain but its not 1+1=2.
If the fans spin in the opposite direction too, that could possibly straighten out the air making for more pressure.
You might find it beneficial to hollow out the fans closer to the rad and use the 25mm spacing to make sure the rad gets awesome airflow through the fins.
More expensive rads already have a plenum like this (hence why they're designed to flow air in one direction), but bigger is better.
What a wondeful mess. This is why people design cases without side windows.
I heard he loves fans so.....
Yea not really needed on that rad. A simple push/pull with good pressure fans would do the trick.
yeah I know, but I have too much free time
The greatest change was in those 80 mm fans over the VRM
VRM temperature dropped 80 degrees to 58 in full load
Yea those VRM's can get toasty! I have a cheaper MSI 785G board and if I OC in the slightest they almost skyrocket. I have thought about getting some small heatsinks to put on them along with a simple fan.
Wow, when you close the case I don't see how any airflow is reaching the fans due to the wire mess. You would probably drop another 10c if you used some cable management. I don't know which direction you are using, but you really need to pull cool air from the back of the case straight into the rad, and blow air out the front and side and top.
after one hour prime95
room temp 25
Don't those CPUs start throttling at 70C (through clock modulation so it won't show a slower clock speed)?
That's ridiculous. I get better temps with higher VCore with TWO fans on my H100i. You have SEVEN.
And for the love of W1zz, clean up your cable mess!
I'm trying to clean up the cables, but the cables are just too short.
I think the temperature of my system are fine, right?
I installed the fans just a test what happens ... and when I took the pictures, even I laughed.
There have to be people with similar systems out there, but they have more sense not to send pictures and I still have one 120mm fan left
hey ive done it and doubled up a 120mm fan and it was like a hairdryer power but no heat lol I had speed selections on the fans so could adjust rpm so that it was just a crazy blow job
Holy ..... my Antec Skeleton (totally open frame) has better cable management than this....
Hope that TheMailMan dosent see this
Your MB temperature is telling: with all those cables clogging up your airflow, way too much air is just sitting still in the rest of the case, which causes temperatures to rise.
Edit: This is what my usual idle temps are, with the following set-up(see attachments).
If I'm honest it is really fugly. But hey these kinds of funny threads make me laugh so I don't mind It's kinda cool seeing people go against the usual.
after hard work, I managed to get cables a little better and it seems to have little change in load temperature for MB and VRM "vcore"
at least it is one version of the cable "managements" LOL
Its a start But judging by the way you have your cables, you can still do a lot better
It would involve unplugging most of the things though and starting over from scratch.
A lot of tie-ribs would also help(or something similar).
I bet you have good noise cancelling headphones...
Temperatures look the same as mine
Thats because its the same picture, it even has their signature in it
Edit: however, comparing it to my temps is probably not fair, as I dont have the same platform as you have.
.. Furthermore, dont take it as a personal attack, just trying to give some advice. I guess this is also getting outside of the original scope of this thread, namely, that you managed to put a crazy amount of fans in your case
If you're happy with your system, don't change a thing!
