post #4306 of 9059

So this is a build I put together for a friend with them.

 

 
Intel 4770K
Gigabyte G1. SNIPER 5
EVGA GTX 780 TI Superclocked
16Gb Corsair Vengeance @ 2133Mhz
AX860i
Corsair H100i
Samsung 840 pro SSD
Seagate Barracuda 3TB
Coolermaster Cosmos II

 

 

This case is hell to cable manage. The front panel must have had about 20 cables coming out of it for the fan controller.

Unlike you I am one cool cat :cool:  All my most precious data is stored on a 5+ year old consumer drive (was refurbished too >.<)

 

Do you use consumer grade drives or the red label/NAS?  Can we have a picture as well

Yeah I still need to do that myself, making a bunch of physical copies. Yeah, it's RAID5 with a hot swap, and I also have a BBU and SSD key that is screaming with some Intel SSDs I have. I use Seagate Greens, and they have been rock solid for over 2 years now with little downtime. I would take some pics, but I would have to empty out the closet just to get to the 70lb. beast.

 

The array itself isn't that hot, but the X79 platform (Rampage mobo) with the hex-core extreme SB-E CPU is the major culprit of heat. I am looking to get away from that chipset soon. I also have a 7970 which I am kicking myself for buying when it first came out. If i had waited a month, I would've gone nvidia. Oh well, no biggie as I don't do alot of heavy gaming much anymore. I also have 32GB 1866 RAM, all Noctua fans, and the case is lined with FatMat. It smelled like asphalt for about a week lol but went away.

 

It's all housed in an Enermax Fulmo GT case with a very nice Enermax PSU that can handle anything I throw at it. I'm pretty sure you could fit a small child inside it lmao.

I can't play War Thunder Realistic/Historical battles for schiit (I can just imagine how bad I would do in Simulator/Full Realistic).

What are those fans on the bottom right for? Dat G Sniper board doe.

You do pretty damn good on arcade though.

You are already playing pretty well compared to the average player there. Just need to work on your aim.

My PSU's cables are too short to reach the 8pin CPU plug on the mobo up top. So I had to route it beneath the GPU and chipset and then to the IO panel to get to the connector up top.

 

I used two adapters for my second GPU so they are a mess POS as you can see. Nothing I can do about it.

 

The PSU also isn't fully modular so I had to stuff all the remaining cbales in the back of the case.

 

The SSD you can't see. I have it mounted on a tray right below the first two HDD's

Push/pull? For what? I haven't seen any real benefits running push/pull.

Yep, fan is pushing air from the outside into the case.

 

Haven't seen any benefits? Try the reviews :tongue: There's a decent benefit.

 

No matter to me though. Those fans are just fans I've had and not ones I bought. Plus it looks cooler.

Am I the only one running 3 120 blowing in and single 120 exhaust + psu exhaust  (+ small gfx card ven). It keep dust out and kept my overclocked rig rather cool but still being virtually silent.

 

So many symmetrical setups it seems.

I just realized that they were intakes... So, where does that hot air exhaust to? Do you have exhausts above it?

There are vents above, but no fa. Every fan in the computer is currently set to push air from the out into the case. The vents on the top of the case are where the heat 'rise' out of. 

 

There are no problems with temps or anything. And teh GPU's are closed designs so that doesn't matter too much either.

Very clever. Good job, bowei.

Clever? Not really. It's just what happened.

 

As I have a dual push/pull setup with an AIO liquid setup for my CPU. I didn't have to really worry about the heat of the CPU.

 

The closed reference design, custom fan speed curve I made, and general efficency of my GPU's also made me not have to worry.

 

Yeah, Chipsets, PSU, HDD/SSD. Last I looked. My HDD/SSD had no problems. My PSU is bottom mounted with the large fan pulling air up from the 'outside' of the case in. 

I haven't checked my north or south temps yet but.....I doubt they have any problems

The fans at the bottom right are for the HDDs and also just intake for the rest of the case as the side panel has small vents for them.

Eh, but that's when all the FMs and DMs are absolutely nothing like how they would normally be (you can fly and turn perfectly fine with a crit wing or fuselage, etc. in arcade). That and you can sustain flat turns and regain energy much, much faster.

If I have trouble shooting a bi-plane in a typhoon, I think that says a lot.

 

That was terrible though. I only shot down one. XD Not used do having a crit wing affect my flight performance so much, but that's Arcade for you.

 

My best match of HB though was probably when we were flying Ki-61's and I shot down 2 Yak-9's.

Eh...looks a bit messy...

 

And that 8-pin connector is really bothering me, but I saw your explanation for why.

 

I really don't undestand the aesthetic behind high-profile vengeance heatsinks. They look butt-ugly to me. They sort of look like G.Skill Ripjaws X gone wrong (and in high profile. Heatsink fins are tilted outwards, ugly, ugly stickers, etc.).

 

And then I don't know why I hate Corsair. They have decent products, although often with a few crucial design flaws that kill it for me. Also, the amount they charge for RAM binning is ridiculous (staring at those Dominators, Dominator GTs, and Dominator Platinums). Other companies also bin their chips as well (Mushkin, Crucial, Kingston, G.Skill, etc.) and they don't charge nearly as much as Corsair.

 

The other thing that annoys me is that all of their PSUs are rebrands. It's not necessarily a bad thing but it just happens to bother me. They do have great customer support though from what I've heard. They've replaced almost an entire rig since one of their AIO coolers leaked on the user.

Pretty good benefits.

I use positive pressure. I didn't purchase any extra fans so all I had to work with were the two fans that came with my case. I have two intakes and no exhausts (I removed the PCIe covers and left certain place unblocked to let the air flow out from pressure).

 

I don't really like calling my setup positive pressure since it's more of positive flow. I'm trying to use that concentration gradient of molecules in air to push them out of the back of the case. I try to remove anything that will restrict airflow (ex. expansion slot covers, etc.) to let it leave the case freely.

 

That hex mesh I still have isn't helping though, but I don't want to cut it out of the case.
