You guys think ~7°C is a big difference is CPU:GPU temps?

...what?

 

So like CPU is 33C and your GPU is 40C? As in something like that?

 

....Your GPU must be doing hella well if it is only 7C more than (modern )CPU on idle or load

No, like if you're comparing temp differences between cases. Like, this case idles the CPU at 30° and this one 37°, etc.

7C is a pretty big difference in that case. Especially when you swap cases and all of a sudden -7C

 

If you spent $3k on a cooling system and got a 7C reduction...it's less amazing.

$3k cooling system?

 

Nah he can spend $850-950 for a phase change system offering less than sub-ambient temps of around -25-35'C. Played with one back in the day and boy is it awesome.

Yeah, that's why I'm saying getting -7C reduction and paying $3k would be a terrible investment(if cooling was what they were going for that is).

Tryin to decide between 2 cases and weighing out the pros/cons of both, as their last battle is between this.

What review or bench are you looking at?

 

What variables changed in the second case that gave it so much more superior cooling. Also, is the superior cooling becuase of some physical factor that only works and contributes to that case with a specific cooler due to some air blah blah?

 

For example, if they used a huge ass Noctua for both cases. Maybe the way the case is somewhat shaped and used with one specific model made it better in one case due to air flow being optomized when using cooler X? But may not get the same results with other schit.

 

Stuff like that. Look for variables and other places where the experiment 'fails'

Agree. 

 

I have messed with phase change a little also, can agree it is awesome under the right circumstances.

I went to Best Buy today for the first time in months and was amazed to find they have a small yet almost decent real computer section. They have some OK peripherals and GTX 760s and GTX 770s. And they also no longer have any sort of restocking fees which I was told after I was talking to an employee about wanting to compare their GTX770 against my pair of HD7950 and he said you can. I did buy the GTX 770 (they only have the reference version with the Titan cooler and its expensive) and I am amazed at how much better/easier Nvidia software is than AMD stuff for lazy people like me since its like one click config :D. Performance is great too, it runs much smoother but at a lower FPS than my 7950 (both in CFx or single card). It runs hotter than even the top card in my CFx but still at an ok range like 80C at load and much quieter than any graphics card Ive heard. I am going to sell one of my 7950 now and probably start looking for a deal on a 770/780 before I sell the second. Team green has made me a believer.

I'd go with the Corsair 250D on this one, or a Fractal Design Node 304. Like VXAce, I have something against the aesthetics of the Colossus.

Node 304, love that case.

Fractal Design has some nice cases. I personally use a Define R4 for my rig. It's a beautiful case, and silent, and I'm rather ashamed of what evil lurks behind that beautiful closed door.

Unless it's BF4 the 770 is an overclocked 680 both faster than the 7950 and 7970 in most cases. AMD ATi just has schit drivers.

I have a Define Mini in my planned build. Just a tad smaller, but I reckon it's about the same. It'll be easier to lug around if need be, and easier to hide.
