Re: Phanteks 'Successor' to the PH-F140HP; the PH-F140SP

Yeah, the successors are the HP II / MP. Coolingtechnique had a look at the F120MP and F140HP II. http://coolingtechnique.com/recensioni/air-cooling/dissipatori/1581-recensione-phanteks-ph-tc12ls-e-ph-tc14s.html?showall=&start=5 Great performance and acoustics in my honest opinion.

Re: Fractal Design Dynamic Fan Series

Here's the RPM range of the stock GP14 in my Define R5. Placed on front, infront of it is the lower drive cage with a single HDD on the bottom and single SSD middle. Both side panels were off but shouldn't affect much? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/39370946/MuroBBS/Define%20R5/GP-14%20RPM%20ra...

Re: Time to start over?

Hi Steve, I think there is some misunderstanding. That's an old layout, I referred to it just to show what the interior is like in my machine. Like I said "I have two 120mm fractal stock fans in the front and BeQuiet Silentwings Top 140mm (disconnected extra fractal 120mm, as it was buzzing)." Its ...

Re: Custom carbon fibre case

Nice looking case! Good job :)

And on the topic of the GPU cooler, your current card also has the heatpipes like the Accelero Xtreme has and the fins in the "wrong" direction.
I'd consider going with 140mm AIO route + beefier heatsinks to VRM and VRAM.

Re: Fractal Design R5 build

Rather not create yet another R5 thread so here's my build which transfer I completed from Lian Li PC-A05NB to this R5 on monday. Sharp looking build you have there! How's the 670gtx, sound-wise? Aren't you worried that the Titan might increase the noise level? Or are you more concerned with the ad...

Re: Haswell's C6/C7 low power states and PSU compatibility

I hope everyone now realizes that this is a non issue since Haswell is out now. The S0ix isn't even enabled on these desktop SKU's. Even though the new S0ix active idle states are not enabled, the old S3 sleep state is still there. According to Anandtech, the S3 state consume about the same power a...

Re: Why I won't recommend a Haswell system until August+

Well I'm an Intel fan. Quite a big Intel fan. But I care for perf per watt and mainly just perf.. I seriously DO hope AMD to get back in the game. At least with iGPU's they rock. I still don't like their APU's power consumption though. My updated HTPC pulls 95w with IBT+Furmark going on full blast. ...

Those doubting my results go read OCN's delidding club. Lots of folks there with even better results. And you might want to check Idontcare's thread over at Anandtech forums. He has documented this delidding stuff really well and why we get such a good results. (which is the IHS distance from the di...

Re: Best Mainboard for flexible fan control, socket 1155

I figure this is the most appropriate thread for my question. I'm looking to get a DH77EB. I'm wondering about the bios fan control. What's the lowest setting you can put your fans with Intel fan control? I mean does it have some fixed rpm or %? I'll probably be using two Akasa Apache 120mm PWM fans...

Re: Has anybody tried undervolting sandybridge yet?

Old thread but let's bump it anyway :D Was doing some experimenting with the voltage on my 2500K last night. Dropped clocks to 40x100 and started lowering the voltage. 1.152v at 4Ghz :mrgreen: Dunno if that's good or good but I like it. It was Prime95 stable with 1792k FFT with 4096mb mem load, good...

Yeah. Well I suppose it should fit.. Since the mounting hole pattern is the same as reference, and by looking at a pic of reference 560ti pcb and a pic of msi 560Ti TFII/OC pcb the gpu core itself looks like its approximately in the same position. And that msi card doesn't have stacked dvi/whatever ...

Hello. Decided to ask on this forum also. I have a MSI gpu as the title says. I'm getting an Accelero Xtreme Plus sometime during the week after the next. I've heard that apparently AXP only fits reference design cards. And the MSI card I've is their own design. So I'm looking for an answer does it ...
