Quick Question guys,

I'm thinking about getting a Prolimatech Megahelem to replace my stock CPU cooler, and was wondering, whats a good fan to use with this heatsink?

Scythe Gentle Typhoons are good for low noise and decent temps, and Ultra Kazes are good for great temps (but like that 16-core server I mentioned above, loud as hell)

For fans, I'll vouch for just about anything Scythe. I also got some GELIDs not long ago that are pretty nice as well. They look freaking sweet too: translucent black blades and green LEDs :cool:

EDIT: My bad, they were Cooler Master R4's, not GELIDS. They just remind me of the GELID fans. "90 CFM" and "19 dBa" obviously a pretty generous spec, but I'd say they come close on both.

Has anyone used Mascool fans at all, specifically their ball bearing ones? I've been kicking around the idea of getting a couple of the 140mm ones and put them on the top of my 590. I just wasn't sure about the sound of them.

Quick Question guys,

Why don't you spend less less money on a Noctua NH-D14 unless you pressed for room. NH-D14 $69.99 at SVC

Ion, I was literally just about to suggest GT's. Got a newegg link for specs and price CDdude:
120mm,Gentle Typhoon


On the topic of fans, I was looking at the Xiggy 140's here:

Computer Hardware,Computer Cases,Case Fans,XIGMATE...

thoughts, suggestions?

The Xigmatek 140mm fans look too much like the "straight blade" Noctua fans that are known for being good case fans but bad cooler fans since they don't push a lot of pressure. Why not get a couple medium speed Yate Loons?

Was looking at that heatsink, but i don't think it'll fit so good. It'll more likely hit the vrm heatsink on my X58 board.

Ah, good call.

I've been want to get a eVGA X58 SLI LE board but wasn't sure about that northbridge cooler getting in the way of my Noctua. Not to mention that the second slot can only be 8x and never anything else.

As promised, one Noctua NH-D14 fitted inside a CM 590.

First, I was wrong. On the Gigabyte 790FXT-UD5P you can't run any ram with tall heat spreaders. Moving the fan higher might not be an option cause it is really close to the side panel.






FWIW, the cpu fan header is in the upper left. I mounted the cooler, strapped in the 140mm fan, snaked the connectors under the fans and out the back (which was a little bit of a struggle), and used the y connector that comes with the cooler to connect them over to the cpu fan header. The y connector was just barely long enough as it was getting ready to pull the other end back through the hole I fed them through. BTW, if you mount the top 2 fans with rubber mounts like I did, you have to mount those two first as getting to the back ones to pull them through is impossible with the Noctua in there.

So, moving from the OCZ Vendetta 2 with a CM R4 that I had on it to the Noctua results: Running 1.45v core and 1.25v cpu-nb I'm barely reaching 40C fully loaded under P95 Large FFTs. With the OCZ I was at that temperature when I ran 24 Hrs of Blend with an open side panel! :rockout:

I thought I was having problems above 3600 core as I needed more volts and the temperatures just climbed past 50C and eventually I would fail. Needless to say, I'm running large FFTs right now at 1.45v at 3800 and she is just humming along without a problem. :rockout:

I happy! :D

small FFTs produce more heat

Ooh when you said it was tight i had no idea it was gonna be like the proverbial nun as for the ram I know what thats like my CoolerMaster Hyper 212 with 2x 120mm fans was the same way couldn't use dimm1 and dimm2 had 2mm before the fan hit thats why i chose the tuniq tower 120 to replace it but it's a AMD mobo fault they put the dimm slots far to close to the CPU socket unlike Intel mobo's

The white slots don't really have a problem with taking the dimms out without removing the fan. Its the blue ones that are not happening and the Ripjaws might now come out without removing the heatsink. Though in a wider case, you would probably have room to move the 120mm higher up to gain some room for taller dimm heat spreaders.

I had reserves for the Noctua on an AMD cause I wasn't sure if it would produce enough heat to be put to use. I know its a champ on the Intel i7/5 series as my 920 barely reaches 70C under LinX with ~1.25v on the core for 4Ghz. It wasn't until I saw the AM3 cooler shootout on Techreaction.com that I decided to get one of the AMD. Then I find out that SVC is selling the Noctua 10 bucks cheaper than what I paid for mine that I bought a little after it first came out. With all that staring me in the face, it was a no brainier for me.

Needless to say, the Noctua has once again turned out better than I expected. I'm really happy about it. I've got another temperature that gets reported (either vrm or nb) that runs cooler too with the Noctua in place. Its a win all the way around.

ok guys just as promised some pics of the inside of the case jejejeje



btw it now has a fan on the bottom just after I finished taking the pics and closing it a friend gave me another coolermaster fan and i placed it on the botton.
and i've got a question. i dont know but for me the fan filter that comes at the botton is anoying it hits the fan and makes a lot of noise dunno if you guys have had a problem like that.

ps: that fan conector you see there is for the window fan, because it doesnt show when the side panel is in place i didnt got much trouble hiding it better jejejeje.

For the bottom fan filter, try putting some tap spacers where the fan screws down to the filter. That's what I did when I had the filter there.

Edit- Do you have a fan in the 5.25 bays?

im thinking of putting one there but not now. Gonna buy some coolermaster sickleflow with green leds..sorry guys cant find nothing else than coolermaster and thermaltake here in venezuela so in my preferences gona stick with those. and when I have the money gonna buy a dremel and do the side window.
Ps 80% of my pc is imported. psu, motherboard, graphic card, and the corsair h50, the only thing i bought here were the memories case and fan. Its really anoying not finding anything here. Gamers and enthusiasts are not a market here T.T

I just wish they would make a R4 that wasn't 2000 rpms. I tried giving it 5v through the molex connector. It put out some nice airflow and only turned ~1000 rpms. The motor clicked really, really bad though.

They really only run at about 1835-1900RPM. They aren't loud in my book. But maybe that's just me.

Their not loud in motor noise under normal 12v operation. They are just loud from the air they move. Put one of yours at 5V real quick and you'll see how "loud" 12v operation is.

I would rather have a 1000 rpm option so I could put a couple on my Noctua cause I think they produce good pressure and would be a cheap option to Scythe GTs.
