You bought a Noctua fan but you cheaped out on PSU? Next level of faggotry.
>>
>>52391039
The PSU was free
The Noctua cooler (with fan) cost me $25 shipped off ebay

Also, old Enermax PSUs were solid

Got a 3.16GHz Xeon for $26 shipped, adapted for LGA775, am running at 3.8GHz on 1600MHz FSB
case was free
MoBo with 8GB RAM was $60
Video card was $50

So yeah, its not even a $200 computer
>>
>>52391140
Cool but I would still buy a quality PSU. Nothing fancy just 400W from a respectable manufacturer.

4790k and two 390's in crossfire.

was extremely powerful, but the 390's produced so much heat and put out a nasty ozone smell that would fill up my room. so i replaced them with a single 980 ti and upgraded to skylake since i was at it.

1600mhz, but somehow speccy reads it as that. Forget the reasoning behind it. Was in some speccy thread.

>>52394734

The monitors for it are awesome. 1080p is seriously good enough for me now. I spent $800 on them a few years ago for my old computer and they still are like brand new, so no reason to get something like 1440p or 4k right now.

>>52391599
Looks pretty neat but two fans in that configuration is weird to me. It would just increase noise without doing much about cooling is what I think, because the flow created by one of them is going to be choked by the other and if you push one harder the other is going to choke the other end. There is no escape for air in between either, can you confirm it actually improves?
>>
>>52395105
wut

generally push/pull is a minor improvement, it does more for air cooling I think.

also it looks cooler
>>
>>52395136
I'm thinking about the case when 2 series fans, each operating at same speed blowing through a tube from both ends, and the air flows at the same speed unless the tube is very long that the flow is disturbed somehow.

got some standoffs (female on both ends), screwed through existing cutouts. they were square, so I positioned MoBo and video card, then superglued it all in place. After the glue dried I removed MoBo and superglued that side. Basically it now has standoffs in the proper locations and ATX boards will go right in normally.

Everythings aligned well and the glue is all holding up so Im satisfied

you don't need to counter fans. also, if you have more exhaust flow than intake flow, which is your case, you'll have a negative pressure within the case, so dust will tend to get sucked through unfiltered holes/spaces/cracks in your case. if you have only filtered intake fans, you can cut down on dust, power consumption and noise. the positive pressure will then tend to push air out of those unfiltered holes, preventing dust from getting in. if temps get too high, then put one exhaust fan in the back.

Most old Soundblasters are useless (at least in Windows) because Creative does not bother updating their drivers for newer OSes. It's a shame, because they sound great.

Even a great card like the SB Live!, that you can get from Thrift Shops or out of old Dells and Compaqs, just will not play nice with Win7 no matter what you do, especially the OEM cards.
There are some independent efforts to make these cards function with custom drivers, but they still have shit compatibility.

I don't think your top fan is needed with your cooler arrangement. I think your cable management is neat, but the one leading to your graphics card can deal without that little bend with the sheathing. Please avoid taking images with bright background sources of light to focus more on the internals of your pc. I like your psu cover.

>>52395002
I think you should turn those fans around so that their cables are not visible. A few of your cables are bundled and are a bit of a mess, but there are worse examples. Try running more of the cable through the back, that may help with length management.

Inspired by this thread, I went and did some cable management. I think it came out pretty good considering the case has virtually no support for cable management.

I think my next project is either to replace the case entirely or get rid of that lower HDD rack in order to provide better intake airflow.

What do you think, sempai?
>>
>>52409047
Does the mobo tray not have any holes around it for cable management? Feel free to take out the hdd rack, as long as you don't have massive weights on the 5.25" bays above. Find a way to get rid of those loops you have coming from the PSU. Find a way to deal with the excess length instead of looping it wildly. If you can still hide things behind the mobo tray, there are those stick-on loops for cable management. At least you have sheathing for most of your cables. Front panel wiring should be easy to hide due to how thin the cable are. If you are going to take a picture, avoid obstructions like trays and racks so that more of the wire-consumed space and cable management options are visible.

If you're going for the DIY side of things, feel free to make slots on the mobo tray for wiring. If you are going for a new case, plan ahead and take down your current equipment and measurements. Measure twice, cut(or in this case, buy) once.

On that note, my package of 200 cable ties should be here tomorrow.
>>
>>52409451

No, the motherboard has absolutely zil. It's also quite narrow so there's no hiding wiring behind the tray like it's possible to do with other cases. This one is bulging just a little because I had to hide the wiring behidn the small space behind the upper HDD rack.

I think the lower rack isn't a structural item, it has a few rivets and folded metal to keep it in place. Doable with some small grinding tool.
>>
>>52409593
In that case, jam as many wires as you can into one of your 5.25" bays, between something solid, such as a cd drive and the top of the case. Should you do so, make sure you have everything that leads into it nice and tidy in a bunch. I think what you did to the rear wiring with the PSU is an appropriate and necessary measure for your case, but requires a bit more pushing in if you can.. Minimize the amount of areas with wires coming in and out of the mobo.

All the best for your cable management adventure, anon.

im pretty poor. only thing i paid for was the PSU (bought brand new online). threw it in an old Compaq Presario Pentium 4 tower just for shits. The other insides are mostly from an old eMachine (Athlon II X2 220, 3 gigs of ram, hard drive and optical drive), and the video card as well came from the same one who gave me the eMachine, but it was in a half height case and couldn't use it. I'm in the process of upgrading it (GPU - Gigabyte R7 250, then 8 gigs of Ram, then CPU - Phenom II quadcore AM3). I'm on a budget, but i think i could make a bit of a potato masher. But right now, i'm a poorfag.

It's surprisingly quiet, I was pretty impressed with how everything worked. Lots of parts and especially cases are aesthetically pleasing. The cpu doesn't have pins, it just kind of meshes against the mobo and gets clamped down, very easy to do.

Only thing that worried me was not using enough thermal, or using too much and having it ooze. All is well though.

>The cpu doesn't have pins
Yes and no. The pins have been on the motherboard for quite a long time now, and there are contact pads on the CPU. The problem with that is that the pins on the motherboard are incredibly small. If they get bent at all, you're fucked. AMD still uses pins on the processor, but you can carefully bend it back if it gets messed up. On recent Intel boards though, a bent pin is a dead board.

I live in a hot area and summer is killing me and my PC

What's the best way I can reduce the heat output of my pc? watercool everything? the graphics card would still dumo heat out the back wouldn't it?
>>
>>52414282
>best way I can reduce the heat output of my pc
Heat output is how much, well, heat comes out of your pc. Be it your chipsets, your hard drives being read and written for seventeen hours, or having very process intensive activity. The best way to reduce heat output is to reduce the amount of load you have. Better yet, don't even use it!

In all seriousness, you have a lot of factors running in if you need to spice up your cooling system. You have your ambient air temp, how well your case and fans get rid of hot air, where that hot air is being dumped and where the cooler air is being taken in. The effectiveness of air cooling comes from the flow rate of cooler air over a hotter area; this is forced convection, unlike natural convection which is passive cooling. Where the hotter air is being dumped also matters, as the exhaust from your cpu cooler can circulate inside your case and be reused by the cpu cooler, making it less efficient in transferring heat. Much like a car, you need intake and exhaust that take in cool air at one end and dump hot air somewhere else, preferably not near the intake.

As for graphics cards, most fan operated ones blow air into a heatsink that has a directed vent that goes lengthwise along the graphics unit. The exhaust goes out both ends of the graphics card, one outside the case and one inside the case, which may then be exhausted. To fully utilize air cooling, you must ensure that intake and exhaust fans are placed in such a way that you minimize the amount of hot air circulating inside the case.

Watercooling works the same way as air cooling, but the heat is transferred into a radiator somewhere else, which is then air cooled.

If you want to find out the best way to reduce temps, play around with fans and even more fans. If you think that you or the computer can't take the heat with the current setup, look at cases and other air cooler options and see if that can work for you. If it doesn't watercooling can help.

Very neat, I like the curvature of the wire bundles. A bit worried with all those wires on top of the graphics card. Good SSD placement.

>>52414896
Low light/10, would squint at again.

Bundle the fan wire along the ATX cables. Bundle the wires coming out of your psu neatly into the grommet. Good work for the GPU wires. Your front fan wire is visible on the top right corner.

I personally don't like the color scheme of noctua fans, but whatever, it works.
>>
>>52415001

Stupid question but how do I go about bundling the wires?

Theres also no way for me to hide the top right fan wire as that's the only spot thats PWM
>>
>>52415134
Lightly bend the wires together and guide them through. Because your PSU is modular, you need to fold/bend the wires at a set distance from the PSU(say, half an inch at a right angle) and then bundle them up with either bigger sleeving or wire. This way, less space is occupied by wires going in the same general direction. Why use ten lanes for eight cars, when you can use four lanes?

As for your fan wire, tuck it on top of the fan so less is visible, if you can. Length management must be done to ensure cable management can become easy. For that wire on above the ATX wire, you can wrap it around the ATX or tuck it underneath it in such a way that it doesn't stick out much.
>>
>>52415212

Thanks for the tips. Will try to bundle them up!!
>>
>>52414404
>Much like a car, you need intake and exhaust that take in cool air at one end and dump hot air somewhere else, preferably not near the intake.
Ergo the case fans are blowing in both directions: >>52414896

But I see that 1 is expelling air and 3 are intaking air. I also see that the CPU fans are just by the one expeller. Wouldn't it be more efficient to just remove that fan and let the CPUs just blow on?
>>
>>52415456
You are right to some extent. Air is bitchy as fuck and still likes to go everywhere, even if directed via fan, so any hot air from the cooler may still linger inside the case. I'm not saying you're wrong! The rear exhaust fan isn't necessary, but it will definitely aid in the exhaustion of hot air from the CPU cooler. Intakes may also be reduced by one fan, the bottom one. Whether or not you deem the slight gain in temperature control due to the inclusion of the exhaust fan is up to you. Having a dedicated exhaust means that air is being actively sucked out of the case instead of being pushed out by intakes.

The car analogy might not work so well now, since the exhaust works on higher pressures than ones our fans can push out, but hey.

I remember the times when I actually used more than one expansion slot on the motherboard.
You'd need the GPU, and maybe the sound + game port (remember those?), and when gigabit ethernet became a thing I bought one card to supersede the fast ethernet that came with motherboards.
I also used a USB card because back then motherboards had only 2 ports in front (headers) and 2 ports at the back, and I needed more for other things.

Nowadays every build is just the board and the GPU. I'm thinking of moving to an ITX board.

>>52419740
I run a mini-server on a VM that connects to about 6 different HDDs. My mobo only came with 8, and two are disabled because I use an M.2 PCIe on the motherboard.
SATA_0 - 500GB SSD for OS, Programs
SATA_1 - 500GB SSD for games and VMs
SATA_2 - 2TB HDD for seeding
SATA_3 - DVD-burner for back-ups
SATA_4 - 4TB HDD for archiving/work
SATA_5 - 4TB HDD for backing up both the OS and the VMs
SATA_6&SATA_7 - 256GB XP941 M.2 for scratch-disk

I have a mini SAS-SATA3 card that has one mini SAS port, which can be split into 4 SATA3 cables via an SFF-8087 splitter. That's my VM NAS array.
I need more room for games and stuff, but I'm out of usable SATA ports. And yes, that DVD drive gets used on a weekly basis for backing-up important work or WIPs.
