Default Post your air cooling

Just curious what setups and results folks have. I'm looking for cool + silent and am mainly looking for possible cooling upgrades (Air only) for my rig.

In a CM HAF922 I have -

-CPU - CM Hyper212 plus with CM 120mm case fan
-120mm exhaust - Antec red LED set on low
-200mm Antec side intake set on low
-CM 120mm mounted on the bottom as intake
-CM 140mm front intake
-CM 120mm front intake
-CM 230mm top exhaust on low

Ambient temp is 72f, and this is the rig in my sig.

Idle temps CPU and GPU



Load temps - OCCT temp stayed stable after a couple of minutes = close enough for this thread, GPU is after a round of Metro 2033. I preferred 'real world' on the GPU vs Furmark.



Thanks

Under gaming, GPU hits 65, not sure about CPU. Will report back later.

Including the CPU heasink, I have 6 fans, but no filters, so I get tons of dust

Ooooh... I like this thread.

Since my rig is "under construction" wouldn't be accurate to post anything now. But I'm expecting the rest of my parts to arrive first part of next week so I should have some results by then.

Also, I'm gonna' see if I can get internet out to my trailer by this weekend, so I'll be able to fully update ya'll if that happens.

Not on air but the H50 setup but I just checked my temps with the program Grey was using and the temps shown on the mobo were WAY off from the program.

What were you getting for load temps Bc?

Just curious -- I don't know that OCCT is the best prog to use for stress/load temps, but it seems to be fairly popular.

I believe the mobo cpu temp uses a different sensor. Core temps are the best to go by for the CPU.

True, what do you (or anyone else) use for load testing a cpu and measuring temps? Is coretemp considered accurate?

I used to own everest ultimate... but it gets so confusing knowing which program is accurate and which isn't- I just gave up.

I have a Antec 1200 with 3x120mm intake fans,1x120mm side intake at the gfx card,2x120mm rear exhuast fans and 1 top 140mm exhuast fan.Theyre all at low or medium speed.

Idles at 33c and loads at 67c with the fan at a constant 60% and a small overclock.





Cpu idle(@3.6ghz)



Load

Sammy - what prog is that you're using to monitor your temps/volts/fan speeds?

Thanks.

Its an ASUS utility called Probe,Gigabyte might have something similar.Have you checked your motherboard cd's/dvd ?

Edit:They have something called easytune 6 that apparenty has hardware monitoring functions,if you can't find it try here : http://majorgeeks.com/EasyTune_6_d6118.html

Heh! I never even checked easytune

The last version I used was just bulky, ugly as heck - I'll give this one a go though, thanks.
