This be my little folding rig:
Loving that Vulcan, but having a few problems with my one.. so: Question time!:
What fan are you using on the side panel? Doesn't look like the NZXT FN200.
Also seen you got the HDD in same place as mine, what HDD/temps you getting? My drive is cooking at 50C+ in that spot so wanna find something cooler running for there.
The fan is a Xigmatek and unfortunately it can only be used as exhaust. Temps for the HDD show 30c. I do have that Evercool squirrel fan blowing on them which ineed helps.
Think I'll need to get the NZXT one then, really need the intake. Gonna hunt down that evercool though. Cheers
The Panzer is a sexay case, but I think it's a little over priced.
If you ever get a new one cooler master has some nice 200mm. A 110 cfm and a 140 cfm that's a little higher rpm, though the 140s are led only. I supposed you could just cut the wires.
I have 3 of them in my HAF-X and they are pure WIN!
+1 for cooler master
err 50c+ your HDD is going to die shortly then
at 50c the air inside the HDD is to thin and wont support the arm for the heads which will cause them to get closer to the surface of the disk platter which will also start causeing read/write errors
Got my HTPC built!! Newegg delivered on veterans day!!
As long as it holds out for a week it's fine. Should have an SSD in there to replace it by then. It's a crappy Maxtor from over 5yrs ago meant for junkyard/recycling.
The looks of that board is making me refine my ideas about Gigabyte and Asus being the only choices for MBs. I wouldn't go MSI or Biostar, but I'm starting to get warm fuzzies over Asrocks.
they are getting better and better imo
Very clean system.
Bringing it to page 578.. lol
That Noctua is one honkin' heatsink.
nice, allthough a bit high voltage
Voltage is definitely high, but not every chip loves to foreplay with lower voltage. Some CPU's just want it... :shadedshu
Its an xeon with no HT and 19 multi but most ive seen is that 1.4 is average for this chip with low multi
211 bclock is pretty good
my maximus III formula wont go past 195 :shadedshu
That should clock higher with lower voltage in comparison to say.. a i5 750. My i5 750 would do 4.0 with 1.36v, 100% stable, 4.2 with 1.4v. But again, each CPU differs. My i7 950 does 4.2 (ht on) with only 1.26v.
