This is just not true. I have had them both ways and having the fans as intake makes no difference in video card temps. When they are set to exhaust all the hot air from the case increases cpu temps 5-7 degrees.
Then your testing methodology is incorrect.
Moving the radiator to the top mount position and having fans as exhaust will result in lower temps, as long as you balance that with sufficient front intake fans.

So you're saying that the AIO is performing as good as the Watercooling Loop?
Yup. This latest corsair aio is pretty good.
Then your testing methodology is incorrect.
Moving the radiator to the top mount position and having fans as exhaust will result in lower temps, as long as you balance that with sufficient front intake fans.
We can argue this forever. I've been water cooling for a long time and it's been my experience that having radiators as intakes is better. I'll agree that if the rad was at the top I'd want the fans to be as exhaust, but it will not give me substantially better temps than with it in front as intakes.

Not much has changed this time... the CPU duct has a better fit against the TG panel, a few little tidbits on the de-shrouded 3080 to add some extra flair to the bare heatsink parts that were showing, plus Master Cheif is defending my case now.

Still need to shorten the tube from the GPU to Rad and seal off properly the empty fittings in the Distro plate.

Did a complete overhaul to my home server because SAS is the best thing ever and eSATA is a stupid thing that no one should ever use.

Also actually wanted to use proper server hardware for this build.

These are the parts I bought this year for the rebuild...





Prices (including tax):
Intel Xeon E3-1260L: $31.06 from eBay
Supermicro X9CSM-F: $47.65 from eBay
LSI 9211-8i with cables: $65.38 from eBay
Fractal Define R5: $135.37 from Newegg (on eBay)
EVGA 500B: $8 from a local yard sale

Total cost of "new" parts: $287.46

I'm transferring my old hard drives to this server, and I already have 4x2GB PC3-10600E modules. I'm also using the same boot drive from my old server. I stole the CPU cooler from a Dell prebuilt that I have.

First thing I did was make sure everything worked together.



Everything worked perfectly, so once the case arrived, I started building.



I know it's weird to have an mATX board in a large ATX case, but the R5 met all of the criteria I set for a case. Plus, I've been wanting to work with this case for a while now.



I kinda wish the R5 had a basement for the PSU. Ran the cable for the rear fan.



Installed the drive cages, connected all of the fans, front panel, and power connectors. For airflow, I have two 140mm fans in the front and one in the rear.



Threw in my eight 3TB WD Red drives, which are still going strong after eight years of service (though I've only had them for about a year).



Did all of the cable management. I have to say, I'm kinda proud of how this turned out.



Of course, having it look nice from the front comes at the cost of the look at the back.



And, it works perfectly. I'm running OpenMediaVault, and the drives are in ZFS RAID-Z1.







In the future, I'd like to upgrade all of the fans (likely either to Noctua Redux or Arctic P-series ones), add a faster NIC (maybe even experiment with 10Gb and SFP+), upgrade the RAM to 32GB, and maybe add a USB 3.0 card.

Made some changes to my main rig. Ditched my loop for now, probably go back to it and some point, upgraded the video card and toned down on the rgb.

For that PSU, did you visually inspect the caps? They may be bulging. (just like a bad battery):(

All the caps I could see (without removing the cover) look fine. I think this PSU was made in 2017, so not too old.

Being a lower end model, if familiar with how pull the cover off and put it back on, with those plastic guards, check, especially the secondary side for bulging at the vents. The plastic parts, prevent arcing from the PSU to the PSU cover.

That thing is sexeh. We should let our chips meet each other, who knows maybe if they like each other enough they can give us some healthy chiplets later on :)

4 bucks for a 10 meter roll of wooden stickers and a 3D printed top panel to accomodate the AIO. At this point I have given up on cooling the 5800x in this case. There's no fresh air intake. The AIO is only getting hot air from the GPU. This can all be blamed to hobby mining and tropical temperatures.

I'm comfortable it reaching around 40-50c in idle and 70-80C in gaming and ambient of around 30c. I tried to use it in a room with AC at 23C and my good it runs very cool 60-70C CPU and GPU never reaches 50C.

If AMD says 90C is good then fine.

Found the Idea of it being wooden a nice addition. And Cable management looks decent. Good Job

That's why the NR200 is the mainstream ITX case now. You can cram cables everywhere. There's 5 RGB connectors all routed to the back and I have a 2.5 inch cooler master controller at the front.

I just noticed. Noctua fans would look great with wood aesthetics.

that is amazing... how much do those heatsinks on the 3080 shave off on the vrm temps?
Well the card in my old case used to game at 74C and mine at 58 C with 88C memory temps (repasted)....

It now cannot break 62C in games and mines at 52C and 82C memory temps.... Those heatsinks get HOT but unfortunately I didn't track the VRM temps, they're primarily to cool off the ram chips... (the thermal pads on the stock card are over the backs of the ram) -- They're definitely doing something but unsure exactly how much.

the card at stock mines with 96C memory temps :O

Give some water to it and it will thank you :laugh:

Is it just me or is the graphics card bent a little?

The backplate has stylish angles on it... the gfx card is straight but the backplate is weird.

I'll get a better pic when i have better lighting and i'm finished with the case, not the best case for cable management and i would rather it only had glass on one side (think i'm going to tint one side Black) but the messy side will be up against a wall.

I managed to kill one of my memory sticks when i pulled off the heatsink as it was being touched by the air cooler, managed to rip off one of the chips so i've got some Klev Bolt X non RGB memory arriving tomorrow.

That's why the NR200 is the mainstream ITX case now. You can cram cables everywhere. There's 5 RGB connectors all routed to the back and I have a 2.5 inch cooler master controller at the front.

I just noticed. Noctua fans would look great with wood aesthetics.
Noctua is love, Noctua is life. Well, if you manage to match it with something which is pretty hard. Vinyl wrapping rads perhaps? And yeah, the NR200 rocks. Megekko in The Netherlands had the case on sale for 79 euro and I was so tempted to get one.

EDIT: Also getting my new Streacom BC1 ready for some extreme overclocking on LGA775. That bench table is honestly just amazing, the thought that went into the design just baffles me. It's one massive slab of aluminium with everything you'll ever need. And yes, that 8800 GTS 320 is going to suffer
