 Post subject: cooling system
New postPosted: Fri Jan 29, 2010 7:13 pm 

first of all.... what kind of cooling system do u use, and how many coolers/fans do you have in u'r "machine" (if not liquid cooling :o )

i have 3 80mm fans and one HDD cooling system ( 2X 30 or 40 mm fans don't know for sure)

but the thing is i can switch them off and on whenever i want to

I integrated the switch because it gets very loud when 4 fans plus the two on the HDD plus the on on the graphic card run together

so i managed to wire the fans with the switch to turn them off when not needed

it's very simple to do u just have to take care of the flow of el. current

if anyone likes this i can post pictures an instructions of how to make it for yourself

to be honest, here I only use my PC to work, I do not know what's the cooler/fan placed on my pc ..

I think it is nothing special ...

Here is another good way to control your fan speeds: Fan Controller. I'm planning on getting one of these when I do the case mod mentioned later. All of your fans plug into this controller and it only needs one MOLEX connector for power. From there its a simple awesome-looking touch screen that controls all of your fans.

When I get my new power supply and graphics card I'm planning a case mod that would add a 120mm LED exhaust fan in front by the hard drive cages, one 80mm LED exhaust on the side above the PCI slots (I'm adding a case window on that side too), and an 80mm intake fan on the bottom. That is in addition to the 80mm exhaust fan already on the back of the case, and of course the stock Intel cooler on the processor. Right now under a load my PC is around 30C, and 20C idle. I'd like to keep it that way :)

I am running a 120mm LED across the HDD cage, an 80mm LED on the see through side, an 80mm on the proc, an 80 mm on the V-Card, a 120mm LED in the rear case, a 120 mm on the powersupply. Sounds like a toranado without the EPU-6, but that software quiets it down by 98 percent.
