That's a big freakin cooler!
yup has the option to add a 3rd fan as well
Not big enough. I can still see some of the mobo
ill fix that when i get back then lol
Still have one of my AMD Athlon 64 FX CPU's:
OOOOOH its a V8
CM V8 CPU cooler, as it seems to me.
You didn't have the right fans for that Alphacool radiator if you thought it didn't cool well.
Martin's test show the Alphacool radiators are some of the best out there right now. Top 3-5 consistently.
And heres just a peak at what will be going in my rig in the next few weeks.
I didn't know it came in such a cool package
You gonna go above 2133?
CM Storm Trigger & Corsair Vengeance M60
Sorry for the bad quality of smartphone camera.
Hey, we got the same mouse! Beware though, the corsair logo and the croshairs on the side button will wear off after a while.
Excellent! Can't wait to see more
Glad to hear that. How to prevent it from wearing off?
Don't have corrosive sweat?
Then I should wear surgery glove everyday
Who the hell is Martin? I've been doing this long enough to know it's not the fan that were the problem. The black ice thats half the thickness cools very well. The Alphacool yes is a nice rad but I dont want to listen to fans that sound like a vacume cleaner beside me. The one's I'm using have good static pressure and even on top RPM they still wouldn't cool the AlphaCool rad.
I have never seen my cpu in the 70c's Ever! I'm used to seeing mid 50's at 5GHz, and above 5ghz, I'm used to see real low 60c's when stressing out the cpu.
Im sitting here atm @ 30c 4.8ghz with fans at a crawl and can hear a pin hitting the floor lol
But thanks for pointing out that my fans suck
I think he means Martin from http://skinneelabs.com/
I'm part robot, leave me alone.
Try to keep your palms cool, and thumb off the sniper button. Also, don't touch the right side with all the gripyness if your hands are wet, it just ruins the feel forever. but if you use this mouse for 4 hours a day or more it's going to wear off in about half a year. I'm at the point where I'm taking the red paint off the sniper button, and half the corsair logo is missing.
First time I've seen the site! Thanks, I have some new reading to do.
Unless that's the same Martin, from martinliquidlab.org then no.
Im surprised you say you have been doing watercooling for long enough to know thing, yet you don't know Martin and/or his website.
You weren't doing something right if your CPU was hitting 70c with the Alphacool radiator.
I know Irony has the 360 version, and dropped his FX8350 from like 70-80c load down to 38c full load at 4.5GHZ.
shit you are completely right, my mistake. Both are great places for information though.
