Looking pretty good though.

Most likely going to upgrade to a GTX 870 when they release this October. Gonna wait, hopefully EVGA, to release a nice design using a modified reference cooler. Like this one.

Wait for the 900s, with the consoles forcing engine redesigns for true multicore support you won't be missing anything.

>>
>>43092672
Thanks! I'm not finished yet, but I suspect tempers will be around 35-40C for most parts, with GPU around 50C, and load temps will probably be something in the neighbors hood of 60-70C and probably similar for the GPU, maybe 75C. No over clocking planned, as I'm buying an i7-4771. I'll definitely post more photos of the cables when I'm done with them all. This picture is quite a bit more saturated than it should be. >Phone

>request picture from other side panel and front
>>
>>43092821
I thought about modifying the front to fit an extra intake, but it would break the cleanliness of the case in the front.

Realistically though, it has a decent cooling. One intake with an GPU should relatively cool with no huge overclocks. You can fit an A-I-O for decent CPU over clocking. Or, if you really want some performance, you could always exterior fit a radiator and do a custom loop internally.
>>
>>43092876
.... You're not serious, right? He posted the picture.

Use your brain.
>>
Remove all the packaging, put the fans in the case and make sure they're plugged in, both are important to achieve optimum cooling. It's no good having a bunch of stationary fans in the PC and it's equally useless to just have them spinning around inside the box they came in.

>>43092049
I hate my case currently. It's horrible; I got it with a pre-build by a large e-retailer about 3 years ago.

It's a pain put the sides back on, the cable management sucks, I've somehow managed to break the front USB ports, the front sound ports have static and the power button broke for some reason so I'm stuck using the reset button as a power button.

Oh and it has some grill drive-dummies in the front which keep feeling like they're going to fall into the case.

Has anyone here ever moved a computer into a new case? Is it easy?

Nothing is inaudible. But 600-700 RPM is pretty damn quiet.

But having 9 fans running at 600-700 RPM, that's gotta combine to some kind of sound.

You'll get used to the stiffness in cables. My cables are extra fucking stiff with this sleeving over them.

And if you lack tie-downs, use the cable stiffness to your advantage and make it shaped to stay in place. Kind if like here, >>43092109 I only have one tie holding down the 8-pin, one on the front I/O, and one for the SATA power.

ITX, my friend.

But yeah, it can hold something like a Titan. Just, you will only have a 130mm CPU cooler clearance and as I said, extra wide GPU's won't fit. You have about 17-19mm clearance for side-mounted power connectors.
>>

I'm kind of wanting a pair of extra fans. One near the PSU and the other on the side panel to help the GPU. Any suggestions? If nothing else I'm probably going to splurge on some pointless Noctua Industrials.

What's the deal with the huge gap in the rear? They even make it possible to mount a rad on the outside, I could understand if it went on the inside (but even then without the gap it'd still clear the motherboard). If it wasn't there you could fit a longer graphics card and an extra drive or two.

space wasnt an issue so i went with the cube case
>>
Don't have a pic atm, but I have a question. I'm new to hardware, so be kind.
Sorry in advance for a long post. I suck at making things short.

I built a computer a month ago, and got a GTX 770 and i7-4790. However, I didn't have enough money to actually buy a decent power supply. So I used my old one. It's over 4 years old, and is made by Chieftec. It's 550 watts and 80 Plus. Also, it's been running 24/7 for most of those 4 years.

My new computer is actually running completely fine, and in the 20-30C temperature range. However, if I start a graphics intensive game which makes GPU go at around 1 GHz, it will get hot really fast. When it goes at 500 MHz, it will stay at around 40 C.

What happens is that my computer just kind of turns off after a minute or so. It's still going, but it's basically off. When I turn it entirely off and on again, it cools down in a matter of seconds.

The reason I'm posting this, is because I wonder if there is an actual heat issue or if it's just the power supply.

Again, I'm a beginner, so I might sound retarded. I appreciate any replies though.
As for my new power supply, I'm getting an Corsair AX 760 in August.

You can mount a radiator there. And on the inside you can for the fan and your I/O devices.

>>
>>43098879
Should the GPU get hot so fast though?
It goes from 30C to 70C in a minute.

If that's not normal, can the power supply cause it to get hot faster?

>>
>>43099456
I want to do a completely passive build
since GPU coolers face down, it makes sense to have the heatsink on it facing upwards to allow convection
I don't know if I just want to get a PCIE flex riser and nigger rig the card so the heatsink faces up, or if I want to buy an actual backwards case
the TJ-08 looks really good but it's only microATX, with 4 expansion slots.
Chances are that an aftermarket GPU cooler would take up 3 slots, and I want room for future PCI interfaces.

You can, but they intend for you to stick it on the outside for some reason (hence the holes for the tubing). If you stick it on the inside you're also limited in thickness, something that wouldn't happen if the gap wasn't there. Also it's going to make plugging stuff into the motherboard more awkward.
>>
>>43099681
I guess my needs are really specific.
I might end up just buying a motherboard tray, a couple sheets of mesh, and making a case myself.
Fucking passive builds need tons of airflow.
>>
>>43099714
My sleeving above is all MDPC-X, using "Shade 19" and "Color-X."

>>43099681
Most boards support RAID well these days. Not sure about fiber NIC, but most but boards also support onboard WiFi too. And any case should work that has a lot of open ventilation/fan mount locations. Just so air can radiator out. Having the card upside won't make a huge difference.
>>
>>43098948
I'm this faggot here

I Googled a bit and found "Zotac Firestorm". I tried underclocking my GPU (Until I get a new power supply, so I can avoid it using too much power for now)
>inb4 that's not how it works
Anyway, it keeps resetting the speed. It just goes back to the stock speed.

Also, I tried setting everything to the minimum, and the driver crashed. I don't know how they made it so you can fuck that up. I mean, it even has minimums!

[/being retarded]
>>
>>43099760
Yeah, but you have to take the shield off to get to the I/O. Or take off the rear side panel. It's not as bad as you think. The only thing I dislike is how it looks with the radiator exterior to the case.

My friend got the same case and uses his radiator internally, as he doesn't have a large GPU.
>>
>>43099714
nope, just the sleeved version available from corsair, nothing special
>>
>>43099836
thanks anon, that made me feel a lot better.
>>
So I did some more testing

My computer just turned itself off when GPU was 63C. I am assuming that means it's not overheating.

I have a question though:
How can my power supply handle it for like 5 minutes?

What I mean is, I thought if PC requires more power than PSU can handle, it will immediately turn off? It seems like in my case it can handle it for a little while...

Nobody here who wants to help someone new to hardware?
>>
>>43100505
it probably hit a power spike at 5 minutes and shut down
with the CPU and GPU power consumption jumping up and down according to load, they probably got under heavy load at the same time and it made a peak in the power consumption past what your PSU was rated for.
What's your PSU wattage, and your hardware?
>>
>>43100541
Oh, that makes sense I guess, thanks.

Also, I mentioned the situation earlier, but I'll sum it up:
I'm currently using a GTX 770 and i7-4790 with a 4-year-old 550 watt Chieftec PSU which has almost never been off.
Getting an AX760 soon. I feel like I want something premium after this hell of a month.

I would try underclocking the CPU and GPU by a bit to reduce power consumption until you get your new PSU

There is your issue. Power supplies, especially cheaper ones, lose wattage over the years. You may also just simple not have enough power on the rail for the card.

I tried underclocking my GPU with Zotac Firestorm, but it won't let me apply it. Is there another program that works better? Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it just resets the clock when I click 'apply'.

MSI afterburner

>>43100694
Beautiful. Now I want a fucking hotdog.
>>
>>43100687
You can try unclocking the BIOS. Uninstall the card drivers, and hardware from the device manager. Turn off the PC and remove it. Then try running on the iGPU for a while if you can and see where that gets you until you buy a new PSU.

The AX760 is great. I love mine.
>>
>>43100707
780 is 250w TDP, figure 300
the i7 is probably 150
I would go 750

hotdog/10

Thanks, that actually worked.
It will only let me underclock by 105 MHz though.

Badass.
Neat cable management, and it's not shittily ricer.
I would remove the 5.25 inch bay for better airflow.
>>
>>43100838
Are you retarded? How does the fan on your CPU heat sink get any airflow with the fucking video card covering it up?

This is elementary fluid dynamics here, holy fuck. You're probably supposed to mount that shit 90 degrees counter clockwise to how you currently have it.

That's actually a Raijintek Ereboss.
Anyway, I didn't know you could remove the odd bay on the Define Mini, but I separated the nails from the bed on both my thumbs, so I'm going to wait a few days before messing with anything.
>>
>>43100943
I see the logic behind removing the extra drive bay.

But not the logic in not placing a fan in front of the empty space for extra air, directly to the GPU/CPU socket.

I see some big coolers being posted.
>>
>>43100922
It sticks out at least 2in over the edge of the gpu and there's 1/2in of clearance between the fan and the gpu itself.
If I mount it ordinarily, the gpu doesn't fit in the first slot.
>>
>>43100976
The case only fits 12cm fans on the empty spots and all I have are 14cm ones.
Believe it or not, I'm too poor to even buy a fan atm.

fuck, I mistook it because of the hole in the center and the weird heatpipe arrangement.
Can you take a picture looking up at the ODD?
Chances are it's held in place with rivets like pic related, and you can drill them out to remove them pretty easily.
Sorry about your fingernails.
Does fapping hurt?
>>
>>43101009
>I know that feel.

Understood. Try for them when you can.
>>
>>43100983
First, you have no idea how big an inch is.

Second, at least 75% of the fan is being covered, thus extremely ineffective in its current position.
>>
>>43100667
Can I get a straight answer as to what is actually wrong with the EVGA Supernova 1000w G2? People keep saying this, but it's been solid as a rock for me, better in fact, than my old seasonic.

I will concede that my cable sleeving job was bad and I should be ashamed of myself. Maybe I'll have to try again someday.

Fapping actually didn't hurt, I didn't use my thumbs.
And yeah, it's held in with rivets but I'm not going to remove it yet.
>>43101038

>>43101151
I think the entire DVD cage will come off if you remove these two rivets and the ones on the other side, unless it's attached at the front as well as the top.
>>
>>43101225
it looks like its attached at the front too
>>
>>43101225
It's likely attached from all sides, when I removed the odd cage from a Thermaltake case it took ~10 rivets.
>>
>>43101130
The sleeve itself is probably fine...

Just do them all. Or mix colors in a sleeve and of one color for one sleeve. Also, use normal heatshrinks color and not really long shrinks. And everything comes out fine.

You're living in the past grandpa.
Cool and hacker as it was, there's really no need for abo-esque unreliable niggerrigged loops with the multitude of warranty backed purpose made parts.
But I am thankful I started in that era.

Though I myself still haven't caught on to this new-fangled angled fitting business. Maybe next time I take it apart I'll think about it.
>>
>>43099621
Neat. It seems that only the 120 PMW Vortex Cougars have the problems though.

And you had no whining problems with the two top exhaust fans, right?
>>
>>43092647
The sag problem of bigger heavier cards I foresaw when purchasing my r9 290. So I also bought a HAF xb to change mobo orientation. Video card is no longer fighting gravity.
>>
>>43092916
easy? yes. Will everything still work when you make the swap? Possibly. Will the parts even fit in a standard case. Again, possibly.

Friend of mine had a pre-built HP. Went to swap it all over to a cooler master case and nothing fit. Power supply was a custom size. Motherboard didn't match hole patterns etc.

I also did work on an old HP with a p4 cpu. Cpu fan and heatsink were absolutely disgusting dusty. Unplugged CPU fan from motherboard header and when I plugged it all back in, the motherboard wouldn't allow boot claiming a "CPU fan error has occurred, your PC won't turn on to avoid damage".

HP implemented this to see if customers were voiding their warranties.

Sandy chips still perform well, but some people SWEAR I needed an i7-4790k to not bottleneck my single r9 290.

Pic is mine.
>>
>>43101308
Fair enough. I probably should have watched some tutorials instead of just talking to one guy at microcenter.

Still can't say I see the point in using a custom loop. The CLC I use still keeps me at the same temps and with noctua fans it runs silent anyways. But to each their own.
>>
>>43100421
The only Corsair I can see in that pic are the fans. Case is Fractal, CPU cooler and GPU cooler are Prolimatech.

I had the non-PWM's on a controller. (NZXT Mix)

No problems at any speed.

>>43101571
It's not hard. But go for it.
I'm okay with CLC's. Especially if you don't have space immediately over the CPU socket for a larger/high performance cooler like in my In Win.

I'd like to see a cool one using maybe a 360mm rad and a CPU and GPU block in one CLC. It'd be a pain in the ass to install. But pretty cool.

9/10

Would give 10 but I personally hate that case and it's layout.
