Hi and welcome Dave
Looks nice mate, tidy too!!
Any upgrade plans?
Dave, sorry to say. That case looks sweet, but it must be killing your airflow. You might want to think about a different case with some really good airflow. Just my 2 cents.
Since the talk is about cases...
Has any of you guys had any experience with Lancool cases? One is goin' on for a good price and the features seem pretty good...
sounds like a bunch of retards wrote their website:
people that count the PSU as an exhaust fan make me wonder and the whole site is written by someone who barely can speak English.
Well, you know it's the usual bull**** that people write to sell their product
Like writing about ultimate performance in latest games on a box of 8600GT My 8600GTS got written "for professional graphics" on the box
I just wanted to know if you good people had any dealings with the company's cases that's all. I didn't wanna start a new thread...
Those cases dont fit my needs in therms of space. A link on the page say's find chassis by size, wich brings up 6 Midi Towers and noting else
That's the thing, they only have 6 midi cases:roll:
Thx a lot for ur comments!
i know that my case is killing the airflow but i live in Venezuela and everything is expensive here so im buying things in miami so i can go and bring them to my country and a case is too big to bring it xD
I already bought:
Core i7 920
OCZ Platinum 6GB (3x2GB)
i was planning to buy:
Evga X58 3 way sli
And maybe a cpu cooler like cooler master v8 or one that guys can recommend me.
What do u guys think?
a CPU cooler or GPU cooler honestly won't be nearly as effective as good air flow.
I think you should make use of those empty fan placements in your case.....I am sure I see at least one at the front and one at the back....thats gonna help the airflow some.
i bought 2 120mm fans to improve the airflow, and i was wondering if the stock cooler is enough for the cpu or should i buy another better?
stock cooler is good enough for stock clock speeds, if you OC you'll probably want to upgrade. (Some people do OC on stock though)
I'd get a non stock cooler. Even if you dont o/c it keeps it alot cooler. I guess it doesnt really matter that much tho. I would get a non stock tho because theres no point in not overclocking if you can.
yea I mean I managed 24C (Idle) on my Tuniq Tower 120 ($40)
INTRODUCING MY NEW RIG
SHES A BEAUTY AIN'T SHE?
hmm.... you happen to find that on the one Gizmodo news article?
it was one of todays posts actually
Pretty sure it was yesterday.... seeing as i remember seeing it last night (i.e. Friday night)
went to MicroCenter to get some Scythe Wing heatspreaders for my RAM because I have cheaper DDR3 Patriot Signature (value RAM). Was only $7 for the heatspreaders
It came with some extra thick thermal padding to use if you had one sided RAM. I decided to put some around the GPU of the 4850 to hopefully make more surface contact to the stock heatsink.
Although not really that much of a difference, the 4850 is idling at 47-48*C. Before it used to idle at 50-53*C.
And ah, yes, my ghetto cooling for my 4850. hahahahahah
this is my case sofar ................
