My (not so) quite rig CM 690

Post by R2_ » Fri Oct 02, 2009 4:11 pm

So here is my rig:


Cooler Master 690

Corsair HX620

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Processor

Asus M4A79T Deluxe (AMD 790FX)

ATI XFX Radeon HD 4850

OCZ Platinum 4096 MB (2x2GB) DDR3 Dual Channel

Now letz go to the building part:


Now installing PSU:


As you can see, i'v pass the cable through the hole BEFORE fixing the PSU screw, otherwise would be impossible.
Some might say that i'm over power with 620 W, however i plan to add more fans, and in the future do a CrossFireX.




Now this AMD cooler is so ugly... I though it would be same as the black edition, but this one looks very cheap. I plan to change this, but there's this warranty thing...

And this is the final, with memory and VGA.


Here you can see my cable management, not perfect but it's fairly good.


The side panel fan seems to be the noisest one... Even been plugged to asus q-fan management.
The hottest part is over VGA and under CPU, at the north bridge.
So i might move this fan to the top and let it running 600 RPM, then add another exhaust fan to the side panel (instead of intake).

[color=red][size=17]Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
cause its ok to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
cause you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly youd love to know what its like
Wouldnt you
What it feels like for a girl

I would suggest chaning the exhaust fan, CPU heatsink, and taking out the side panel fan. It serves no goo purpose, and if you block off the vents, you may see better temps.

I see your point, thats holes could be 'leaking' air from a best-performance flow.

But the problem with CPU heatsink is that i would loose my warranty from AMD :( Not to say they are really expensive.

I wonder how effective are this software that controls fan speed, and there's also the limitation of 3 connectors on the mainboard.
Thats why i can't wait to get my hands on a noctua that would run full speed without that much noise.
