Not great. Quieter than my venom push pull for the same perf. Absolutely nothing can keep my i7 cool at this speed it seems. The H50 fails, all idle at the same temp. My fan arrangement for the H50/70 is one high speed on exhaust. Dual fans makes it loud enough to defeat the point of water, intake is a moronic heat dump that's not even an option. Most reviewers didn't even test it. While I've seen these things stay stable at 102c it really bugs me seeing mine up to 95c, even if it is stable. Yes I've tried all sorts of crazy case fan stuff to make sure it isn't from bad ambient or dead air flow, it's not. Re-seating always brings the same temps. All I can figure is it's my chip. Looking around I've seen a lot of people topping out in the 80s, but I see a few always in the 90s. I guess I'm one of those few.
thats odd, I had a CM V10 sitting atop my i7 920, @ 4.2hz - ~1.35v, prime and orthos made it heat up to about 80 degrees on all cores, and I thought that was a bit toasty for my liking, but 95...wow.

Today I built a rig for my friend Scott who was in need of an upgrade asap. He gave my his budget and I recommended him most of the parts. He doesn't know much bout pc's and surprisingly he pick out the CM Sniper mid-tower case, which I think was an excellent choice.:toast:

Anyway here are the specs:

Intel i7 920 cpu
Evga X58 board
Evga GTX465 1gb
Corsair 750HX psu
Corsair 6gb XMS3
WD 1TB Black hdd
Samsung cd/dvd

The overall experience building the Sniper was great, I removed the hdd cage to allow for better airflow from the front 200mm fan and mounted the hdd in the bottom drive bay, also added a bottom intake fan. The only mistake Scott made was the optical drive, he bought an IDE instead of sata:slap: and the usb/audio/1394 cable are white which is a bit of an eye sore IMO and would look sooo much better if they were black.

Enjoy!
Great looking rig, even with the IDE. Although a better cooler would normally be a good idea, but I take it he's not the overclocking type?

Good lookin' case. Hope you had fun helping out a friend. I would like more people asking me to build their PCs, instead of resorting to pre-builds or stores that leave cable mess and bad configurations. :shadedshu
I don't even charge for building it and I usually give advices for the hardware, so go figure...
IDE DVD drives are not so bad, they free up SATA connectors. :D
I have a IDE DVD drive. :)

Well I went from an Alpenfóhn Brocken to True black to Alpenfóhn Nordwand in barely any time XD

Current set up!




If your wondering, the heat-sink performs like a champ best direct touch cooler out I think, how ever I'm thinking of modding it into a flat base cooler as currently the last two heatpipes make NO contact and it still outperforms the True and the Brocken.

I like that its got such a thin form factor. I wanted to sell my MUX for a Megahalems but didnt as it would completely cover the first two ram slots on my mATX.

It's still fairly wide, just the curves make it deceptive, its 71mm thick not including the fan.

And yeah real shiny! nearly mirror finish, if I got out some polish and had at it I could use it to style my hair... if I ever bothered to style it in the first place :D

Thanks Rad_ed:) Yeah I tried to convince him to get a nice cooler but he was already max out on his budget (probably why he went with the 15 dollar IDE drive:laugh:) Anyway he wont be doing any overclocking for a long while....the best I could do has replacing the stock TIM with mx-2 compound.

This just arrived, got interrupted making it as what ever I ate last night made me massively ill D:

But all fitted nicely now, due to sticky out heat pipes I couldn't use the ram uni-sink : [

Had to cut some fins away at the dvi port area to fit this as well.
