Default Re: GPU cooling

I use the Zalman VF900, and it keeps my X1950PRO at 50C 100% load 24/7, in the summer heat. It's also really quiet, even with the fan at 100%.

If you go with that one, theres no need to put the fan controller included, because at 100% the fan is very quiet. The VF900 + AS5, will significantly reduce temperatures.

Yea I was thinking just running it 100% all the time... I'll use the fan controller for a different fan... i'm adding a lot more fans, i have a high perf. 93 cfm fan in the mail, supposed to be here today or tomorrow, 2 more 80mm fans, and then maybe one for my NB, i dunno.

that would make it

1 80mm fan on cpu
2 80mm fans for case
1 90mm for pci slot
1 100mm for case
1 120mm for GPU
1 60mm (or whatver it is) for gpu (the zalman fan)
1 120mm for case

I'm thinking about taking one of the fans, though and just using it to put ontop of my hdd, since it runs pretty hot.

That's a lot of air being pushed in that case.

Scratch the pci fan... That's too much, I'm getting a fan controller for some of them... since the NB runs hot, when i plug any fan into it, it screams really loud, i'll need a fan controller, since i dont wana deal with it... and i mean the NB doesn't get that hot, maybe after intense gaming does it get very hot when you touch it.
