Take the surface of the sun, ~5,526C, then subtract 5,431C from it, and you have the load temps of 3, 6970's.

I too have the NZXT fan controller. Works as it should and is nice that its touchscreen but the badly lit LED is hard to see in certain lighting and the temp probes arent really that good so i dont use them. I only have the exhaust and inlet fans connected (4 altogether) so i use 80% fan speed when gaming and 40% for idle/light cpu usage by switching it manually.

Not using the temp probes either here, heard of their inaccuracy prior to purchase.

So I am not gonna even bother. As a fan controller though it works quite well.

New machine arrived. All seemed well, opened up the side to remove the transit packaging to be confronted by this. Scumbag courier firm obviously had a nice game of footy with my machine, unbelievable.



Hopefully it's just the cooler that's bust. Can't see any other damage and it did post fine, but still. GRRRRRRRH!

Who would ship a computer with that large of a heatsink without any kind of support...

Plus you should have built your own...

That's not the shippers fault, that poor packaging.

(whoever boxed it up for shipping is what I mean)

The inside of the case was packed out solid with airbags to be fair, just don't think they were enough to stop the pressure from the box being dropped. Things appear ok I guess.

I would never ship a PC with that cooler attached. Only if it was a stock cooler.
