How do you deal with the 8-Pin CPU power connector. I have this case and with all the 240mm AIO coolers (been through like 6 H100i's that all went faulty ("CPU Fan Error" on boot) before now using Kraken X52) I use, one of the screws sits right up against the connector so I have to flex up the top of the case a bit to force in the 8-Pin connector (Won't actually clip in, but does go in, due to the screw blocking the clip bit).
Good friend, here I must force only a little to enter, but it is good, without problem. Thanks hugs

That thing is sexy. What fans, and did you make that PSU cover yourself?
Yes, Thermaltake riing.

I made it with shoe box and black sticker for finishing. Simple, fast and efficient. In my country, they charge about $ 35 for a psu cover of acrylic. I preferred to do it myself. Thank you, big hug.

Thermaltake Riing red 120 probably (you can see the Tt logo on it )

from Tt website:


tho same question:



mmhhh maybe
http://www.coldzero.eu/546-psu-shrouds

mmmhhh probably not the cable cut is not at the same place ... oh well i saw a ton of 350D owner doing a custom PSU shroud of diverse sizes, so yep, he probably did it himself.
Yes, exactly. Thanks.


One more pic. Thanks.

I like that you built it in a drawer. I LOVE that you used a spent .308 cartridge for the power switch!

that's how mine was setup (both air or water) and that's also how my Panzer Max is actually set up (with a size reversal in the back/front since it's 3x140 front 1x120 back :D and 2x140mm top since i shifted from 240 to 280mm top radiator)

Looks great there dude, you should notice better temps now. :)

I had that clearance issue with my Sabertooth 990fx when i tried to install my rad fans as push pull. Now i have the rad installed directly against the roof metal with the two fans underneath it.
Excuse the crappy phone image.

Seems I can't edit a post, so I'll make another. Fixed up the fan wires, tucking them behind the back plate. No more wire nest hanging from the top. I want to get a fan hub that can go behind the motherboard, but then I'd have to deal with the rat's nest that you can't see...

..so you have the front and rear(on the rad) fans pulling air in and exhausting through the top?

Yeah, I do. I had a rear exhaust fan until I got the radiator. I read that the radiator should be intake. So now I have two top exhaust fans. Is that bad? I totally welcome any better ideas.

When i first got my air 540 i had a 120 rad (h60) set to push/pull in the forward top fan space with 140 fan next to it on the rear top space both set to exhaust and two 140's in the front as intake and the rear 140 set to exhaust. the reason i put the push/pull rad in the forward fan space was because the rad didn't clear the cpu power connector with two fans on it. The great thing about the air 540 is you can mix fan sizes in the front and top. Hope this helps.

No it's fine..I had the same case for my son's but never thought of that...Don't think reversing it will much of a difference

I was going to just edit my last post and add this to it but the edit button appears to be missing.

Ages ago I sold a friend one of my rigs,years ago it seemed to die(red hot resistors by the south bridge!)

He's finally got round to bringing it round to me to fix ( was going to replace motherboard) how ever I took it out of the case and decided to run it without the huge thermal right heatsinks with its ghetto homemade mounting system.


And the thing has only gone and powered on and booted windows!

Unfortunately his psu hasn't got enough gpu power connectors to run the 6870 but we'll get round to that :)

Anyway not my PC at the moment but it's kinda my PC as it was mine in 2011 or 2012.

nope it's not missing, it's a limited time "edit" ;) also this is the only time a double post is tolerable :D when Edit is not there :laugh:

caseless PC... i had some (i could still do some) and specially a build made out of a mobo from a DELL SFF with a C2D E6700 a HD 3650 4gb DDR2 800 and Ubuntu 12.04 + BOINC installed on a 8gb stick for a WCG challenge ... good time fun time

I see, forum has changed a little bit since I was last here a bunch.


Also
1055t set up is now fully resurrected! Just needs to go back in its case and we're golden.
Its currently running through stress tests to make sure it's all okay though, currently on 15th pass of prime 95 max heat and max cpu temp of 40c so far.

CPU is at 3.5ghz, can't go beyond that on this board it hasn't got very good vrm and the only cooling it has is copper heatsinks I added that get to 65c or so even at 3.5ghz.


It may take me several years but I always finish a job.



( last looked at this PC 4 years ago)

Changed out the H75 for a H110i. H110i has an LED in the Corsair logo, so that's super important. Liking the looks of it much more. Not gonna lie, this thing is a noisier, so I need to figure out the settings. Put the radiator at the front as an intake and it takes advantage of the dust filter. Top and back fans are exhaust. There's like, 3mm of clearance between the fans and GPU, lol. Next step will be to put screening on the giant cut outs (???) on the bottom of the case to keep dust and cat/dog hair out. Between my long haired cat and brother's German Shepard, I'm doomed.

Looks nice... Corsair used to sell dust filter kits to cover all the other vents and unwanted gaps on this case. Overclockers uk used to sell them but i haven't seen any for sale on there for a while.

The Gigabyte 880gm-usb3 had no heatsinks on the VRM but allowed for a overclock on Phenom II x4 960T with default voltage of 1.3 to 3,750 MHz with an extra core unlocked.

meh ... rad in top exhaust is better, you are actually blowing hot air on the GPU by doing as you do, i only did once with a rad in the front but that was with a GPU full cover waterblock :p and idle/load temp on the CPU were higher .... funny eh? taking the air from inside the case actually lead to better temp since the airflow is better

question: is your Hydro in push pull configuration? because without the dust filter you can fit the fans between the chassis and the bezel oh wait you use the dust filter ... (never used it on my AIR540, it hinder the flow more than it help something)

actually in: 3 x120 mm intake (with dustfilter if you want) 2x140+ rad top exhaust 1x140 back exhaust you have a better airflow and no issue on the dust for the radiator :p
the Panzer Max allow the same type: 3x140 front (w dustfilter) 2x140 + rad exhaust (H115i) 1x120 back exhaust, no dust in the rad, no problems and better temps for the GPU and CPU:)

also:
Yeah, I do. I had a rear exhaust fan until I got the radiator. I read that the radiator should be intake. So now I have two top exhaust fans. Is that bad? I totally welcome any better ideas.
i tested both way : no big differences at all, actually rad exhaust my idle/load on my 6600K @4.4 are 24°/50°
