Re: I5 2500K TEMPS and prolima megahalems, Some advice wante

Well I just don't know what I should do now, at first I wanted to get my temps as possible so I could tune down my fans for silence... but I just can't seem to find out if my temps are good for standard clock at load with such a good heatsink and I dont think its the solo airflow. If I search on goo...

Re: Sandy bridge -- temperatures high and changing quickly?

I have a this at the moment:

I5 2500K
Asus P8P67 Pro
8gb kingston 1333 (used from old setup)
Prolima Megahalems
Antec solo

I did some tests and at stock clocks im idle around 31/32 for all cores, load im getting temps 47/48° on all cores, sometimes core 2 tends to run a bit hotter.

Re: I5 2500K TEMPS and prolima megahalems, Some advice wante

So load temps around 48/50° with megahalems is more then fine right?

Now I just need to play around some with fans (what RMP I want for CPU fan/exhaust), or if im gonna use PWM fan.

Prolimatech Megahalems fan choice

I just assembled my sandy bridge system but can't seem to find a good choice for CPU fan & exhaust.

My first thoughts was a PWM slipstream for the megahalems, and an noctua at low rpm (400/500) for exhaust? Any advice?

If anyone has a good fan choice for megahalems/exhaust let me know :)

Nexus real silent fan motor noise

I just got 4 nexus 120mm black & white frame fans,

I used one at 7V and all 4 of them have a little "clicking" weird motor noise, is it possible because they have been in a package for a long time that they will get better once used for a while?

Im planning on buying either a 5870 or 6870 and either going for the AC twin turbo pro or icy vision?

Any suggestions ? what would be the most quiet solution here? also do I need to buy other vrm coolers or will the ones coming with either of those do well enough?
