          Thanks. Well, the radiator has a pull config with the fans and there are several vented intakes along the bottom front of the case. Both sides have vents, the bottom has vents, and the front panel of the case has vents on it to intake all the cool air through the radiator.

          You really want the radiator on the bottom of your case as heat rises. Since the radiator cools the water then you want to keep it as cool as possible as the water temperature will have the biggest impact on your temps.

          I've pushed as much as 1.475v through this chip and load temps under Prime blend or small FFTs is about 55c across all cores after 5 minutes. Normal desktop use is around 30-33c.

            Thanks. This is my first Raid5 setup, and it's really fast. Windows boots in 10-12 seconds from the bios screen. That's all icons on the desktop and no hourglass (meaning all startup programs have loaded.)

              People told me it was pointless to run raid 0 on 3 vertex 3s. I personally like the speeds however, "unnoticeable" they may be to others.

                Still planning to reroute some of the wires so its not yet complete but its getting there. My accelero cooler for my HD 7970 should be here thursday or friday too.

                      How are you people so clean with the cables? I try to be as neat as I can and then I just give up and let the wires hang loose.

                            Well, lots and lots of patience and you need to have a Case that will let you hide the unused wires back behind the MB.

                              That's the kicker.

                              The newest chassis' out now all have great cable management features.

                                Thanks, Greasy.

                                The way I approach cable management is I'll find a neat way to hide the cables on one part before I move onto the next one. So it's a tedious, step-by-step approach. It took me about 2.5 full days to get everything in the case since I was doing it this way.

                                Although part of the reason it took me so long is this PSU I'm using isn't modular. That makes it a much bigger challenge.

                                  No doubt about that, I might spring for a nice modular psu before to long anyway.

                                    Man I'm exactly like that ! Pass some cables in pass-through hole, tie-wrap, decide one cable would be less visible in another hole, cut tie-wrap, re-wire, re-tie-wrap, find out another cable would look better if passed under another one, cut tie-wrap, etc, etc

                                    I have a modular PSU and it's like night and day vs what it was before (I build my Raven 2 Evolution with a "regular" PSU at first, then bought a Corsair AX850).



                                    It's like unicorns vomiting chocolate rainbows all over me as I float through a lollipop garden on a magic carpet.

                                      Same here, I used a modular PSU for the first time in my new build. Made cable management sooo much easier.

                                        I think I'm going to take this approach in my next build. I typically just try to figure out wtf I'm gonna do with the mess after I'm finished.

                                              Just got everything set up in the new case. Excuse the wiring, I'll be swapping out a few of the fans soon enough.

                                                  It sucks that you cannot do similar things with amd cards, since the memory/vrm heatsink is soldered to the main heatsink.

                                                    I was thinking, you could put the shroud back on too and run the fan to cool the heatsink/plate for VRM's and memory.

                                                    Hrmm, might be easier and far cheaper than going all out water cooling for kepler lol.

                                                      Yeah, those vapor chamber coolers are nice but thats the major downside. I don't usually use stock cooling for long other than in the FT-02 where nothing would fit.

                                                      I really wish that someone would build heatsinks like the iandh ones that petra's tech shop used to sell for the 4870. You would think that there would be a market for it. The memory is easy enough to sink but finding a good vrm cooling solution can be a pita.

                                                      I was thinking about that. I just need to do something to cover where the stock heatsink went. I really don't want to have to use cardboard. I may just use that little fan duct that comes with the case. I also plan on putting four 120mm fans in the side panel, mostly because I can.

                                                          I dont know what you mean by that?

                                                          Cant you just put the plastic shroud back (over the top of 620 water block, with a slot cut out for the hoses) and turn the fan back on??

                                                            You know the metal part on the GTX480? thats actually the heatsink. So I would have that big hole to fill. I don't know why they decided to not do a normal shroud.

                                                              Oh ok, didnt realise the 480 heatsink was hanging out like that, I see. You need 580 shrouds

                                                              Or you could just buy a small sheet of perspex and cut it to the right size.

                                                                Interesting. So when gaming how do you get the fan on the rads to speed up when the card heats up?

                                                                  I have a lamptron fc4 so I just use manual fan control. Normally I just leave them where I know that they stay quiet and still work well. If I start overclocking or it gets warmer in the house I'll crank up the fan speed a bit before gaming. My 24/7 setting at stock speeds keeps the gpus around 50c in Heaven.

The specs seem to be in the range of the inverter on the PSU board and I even have a 12V power supply laying around. I should keep looking to see if I can find one with adjustable brightness.
