I have that case and love it plenty of room to work with.
i might as well post latest from mine . . .
I found that if you don't restrict air for them, the air noise isn't bad at all. But if you say block the intake side with mesh, they make a great noise that's close to that of barely leaving a car window open at 60MPH.
Plus, I like the amount of air mine move at the current RPM. I have one set up to suck air off the Mobo/CPU area. The second blowing air directly onto my 9500GT.
Somebody whos still using 939 is win in my books.
Hurrr the Intel boxed cooler SUCKS. Performance is good even with stock i7 but the noise of the damn thing... :/ (no worries, just temporary thing)
With May Day addition...
Here's what mine look like
What cpu cooler are you going to use???
Kinda debating between Megahalems and water.
I've been watching this thread for over 18 month now and this is the first time i post so here is a pic of the old rig (case is Gigabyte 3D Aurora with Thermaltake Bigwater LC)
and here is a pic of the new one (case is Aerocool RS-9 a sweet deal i got when i was in Thailand)
What a cable mess:shadedshu
And a lot of maintenance
But the "farm":
All i7 920's
I love how all the pcs are in the corner where the heater is...
You can turn off the heater... pc alone is enough, sometimes too much
Those heaters haven't been on since March of '09
I was able to heat my apartment with crunchers
thats true after a few hours gaming im boiling from my monitor upfront, rig on the right and amp on the left lol
I'm willing to bet I've got one of the worst heat problems in my room compared to some of you guys. It's small, almost no ventilation, can't open the windows, PC on 24/7, speakers with hot amps on 24/7 . . . and that's just the basics. If I want to work on any music, then there's a ton of heat from my recording interface and I have to turn down the PC fans and turn off the room fan and the PC is under load and producing even more heat. Playing games has a similar affect, except I can at least keep the fans on. I often have other hot electronics running as well. I'm lucky to feel even a tiny chill in the winter, and in the summer I'm just lucky whenever I don't wake up in the middle of the night 'cause my sheets are soaked in sweat.
EDIT: woot! first post on page 200!
Time to buy a portable air conditioner.
They aren't that costly after or before summertime. Although during summertime prepare to be extremely overcharged.
Sounds like you need to watercool your PC Less fan noise, moar cooling.
I've already got a modded CoolIT Eliminator. I don't really have the money or patience to set up a custom loop though
To be honest, my cpu, gpu, and hdd temps are pretty nice even in the summer, it's my board that produces the most heat, and then the eliminator pretty much chokes my exhaust.
I've considered getting a small air conditioner, but I don't really know what to look for in one so I've never felt comfortable spending the money for it.
you can luck up and get a 5200 BTU AC unit from walmart for like 99$ when there having a sale. BTW your combos going out this morn as soon as USPS opens up
Ok since i sold the 790FX board i have ordered my HTPC case and guys if you need one and are in the US this is the time to get one! This Case is on sale for a CHEAP PRICE! its 39.99 with free shipping and with a MIR of 10$ so you can get it for 29.99 total! I just ordered mine!
Also was thinking of going a nice interior paint job!
i've heard those are some SICK cases. Make sure to take lots of pictures when it comes in!
Oh i will sniper! im going out to my storage building to see how many cans of paint i have so i can strip it and paint it once it arrives! only concern i just realized is that i dont know if i will get to use my evercool transformer 4 in it?
best part about that case is I'm pretty sure you can use full-height coolers! You just may have to install the heatsink with the motherboard tray installed in the case. it would have been nice if they made the 120 fan removable with the tray on the back of the case...
NICE! this time i will probly do a push/pull config to get better cooling with the new board! im hoping this new 785 board will OC the 5600+ more
