Great looking setup T77.
Those BeQuiet coolers sure are cool looking!
My brother wanted a new PC, so I took the chance to get fancy new stuff and offered him some of my current parts.
Here is my old PC
Aaaaand the new one!
So wait.. you got a new board, psu, fans and braided cables? Do you have any pics of your brothers (like new) rig?
I didnt realize the H80 was so popular. Now that I have mine, I am seeing them everywhere. it is an excellent cooler.
Yeah, you nailed it. Good eye! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my brother's rig, but next time I'm at his place, I'll be sure to take a few pictures.
It's actually an H100 I have in there but you are right, they are very good coolers.
I've played around with the overclocking and got 4.6 GHz so far. Going at 25C on idle and 65C full load on Prime95, so I'm pretty happy with it
I haven't seen a top mounted psu in years! Nice rig dude and Welcome to TPU!!! Be sure to fill out your system specs by clicking on the "User CP" link at the top of this page.
1 months ago i have a top mounted psu wih my enermax phoenix neo xd but i dont have showed it xd.
I am sure top mount psu case are still popular, but I personally have not seen any in ages. In my opinion the bottom mount with psu intake entering from underneath the case is more efficient then the opposite solution.
the case I use is very good to keep the top mount psu cooled as it has an open vent manufactured for water, but the psu sucks in the cool air from the top expelling at r3ear. also the bottom mount id build the same in my case I would use bottom mount, but was running three way sli on rampage II board and the PCI-Ex slots were shifted down for this board by one slot each to make room for the sound card that comes with rampage II which used a PCI-Ex x1 slot on the top. an ideal case for this board I found would have been a ten slot case by lian Li or Tt Xaser VI, but I ended up changing the board plus with the top air vent I have no probs
In a low-noise low-airflow setup, a PSU helping out with airflow should work best when mounted on top though
was my situation with my last case ( enemrax phoenix neo) with only front and rear fan because the side monsterfan was too big for my cpu cooler but i prefer from now on botto mounted psu + cable management so my fractal design arc midi is great xd.
Oh well that is cool! I never thought about flipping the psu to intake from cases with top ventilated holes. Great idea!
Yes, your right when it comes to low-noise profiles, thank you for enlightening me.
yes it is in upside down. but idk it has a light that shines on my cooler so it may be the only way it goes. the case is the HAF-932 which I have wanted for ages and ages really badly. my tech runs a lot hotter now it is cooled so well
Something looks strangely similar.
I've got one of those too!
Well it's not the greatest picture, the case is "ancient" so no fancy cable management but it is my PC ATM. Be Gentle...
I'll be gentle, plenty of lube
Any custom watercooling gets a thumbs up in my book, or a peace sign!
Well it's more "semi-custom" watercooling. Still using Thermaltakes original "plumbing" I just bought it a nice new AC Kryos block considering the original TT Block was intended S775
