Considering your case and the 244W TDP GPU you've stuffed in it, I don't think the 95W CPU was your problem I do not put a 244w gpu in a 10 liter case and cange the cpu for a cooler system :) case has a ghetto mod with the gpu cooler Accelero Xtreme PLUS II located externaly and minimum rpm. anny h...

Re: What low power Ivy cpu to get?

After reading the article on guru3d about cpu preformance during high resolution gaming ive desided that i do not need such at powerful cpu as the 2500K since it does not give anny more FPS. what i do ned is a cooler one. http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-7970-cpu-scaling-performance-review/8 ...

The gtx 580 it comes with different minimum fan speed. some has a minimum fanspeed @ 40% and some has a lower minimum. so u need to read up and buy from the right poduser. my gigabyte 580, has a 40% minimum and idles @ 41 celcius. needless to say that 20-30% would be more than enoug...

As a measurement, ive got 2 fans in my system now. the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 and, a 12cm noctua @ 636rpm in the psu. with my ear in the case, the noctua makes more sound than the hd6850. both have been stopped with my finger :)

Re: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 very silent and not even vapor-x

Sorry, bad english :) what i ment is that because of its physical attributes, bigger fan and heatsink everything points to a better preformance reagrding sound levels. measurements from techpowerup points to it. and if its a great card it will be discussed here in the forums for sure

micksh; I could not find any fan controlling utility from Sapphire. Honestly, default fan behavior is good enough for me. If someone gives me a link to some utility I could test it.

All syntetic burn tests makes way to high temps, think i drop 10 celcius by changing from prime95 to F@H and both are 100% load.

In other words, I think ur temps seem ok. and u got a good chip that does 4.0 ghz at that voltage :)

Great test, for me running the intel stock cooler always has included undervolting, and using program i can get the fan really quite when adjusting after boot. i guess with undervolting u could go lower, maby down to 5-6V did a quick undervolting test with I7 920 http://bildr.no/thumb/663081.jpeg

I think its a thight fit with a 3,5" disk. it can be done with some modding, removing some metal (seen in picture 4 in the link) in the front I THINK would make room for as an example a tripple 3.5"drive bay that can be fitted where the psu was.

Today i undervolted my board with rmclock. at full load with F@H an E8600 with Stock voltage 1,225V it pulled 102W from the plug. set Rmclock to 1,1V And it droped to 80W. so down 22W........

So i really hope and pray that we se a gigabyte m-itx board soon with some proper undervolting options.
