    Hello, Forum

    Few weeks ago I started my new build and now i'm finally done this thing is a beast compared to my E6500 with 4GB DDR2 here's the specs:

    Processor: Core i5-2310 @ 2.90GHz
    Motherboard: MSI PH67A-C43 (B3) v1.0
    RAM: Kingston KVR 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 @ 1333MHz
    GFX Card: Sparkle Nvidia GeForce GT440 512MB GDDR5
    Case: Thermaltake V4 Black Edition with 6 x 120mm Cooler Master Sickleflow 2000RPM Fans
    PSU: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500W
    HDDs: Samsung HD502HJ 500GB SATA II, Excelstor Technology J8080S 80GB SATA II
    ODD: LG GH22NS40 DVD Burner SATA II

    So far, sick. That's all i can say my WEI is now respectable I did my best with the cable management but the V4 has little to no room for that! but still i think i did a pretty good job

    Weird thing, though.. i find the Processor a little bit on the warm side (44ēC on idle), maybe is the fact that i have the Intel HSF, a 29ēC room temp and a really crappy thermal compound... But still i don't know too much about Sandy Bridge processors and its temps, throw me a bone here, Forum! i'd appreciate it.

    I'll probably end up buying a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ or a Corsair A70 but i don't know if it'll have problems with the fans placed on the top of the case! another bone thrown at me would be excellent

    Punkster,
    Nice upgrades, the cases top exhaust fans in stock positions wouldn't lend them selves to a radiator. But offset the one over the ram sets all the way to the top and even if necessarily drill two new holes for the upper most fan mount holes and you have a winner ! I think as long as you stay with low profile ram you can easily mount the H series radiator even a push pull arrangement should work. If you do then I would max the ram with two more matching modules and the prices should be falling as once the rad. and fans are there the ram removal or addition will require dis-assembly of the rad. and fans ....IMHO ! Great job and very clean wiring job !

    From what I've read and heard, the thermal paste that Intel and AMD use are both very very high quality. Did you enable Speedstep, C1E, and C-States? Very nice cable management

    A few of my friends have got the second generation i5 ships recently (one with a 2400, one with a 2500, and one with the 2500K), each of them have said the stock heat sink keeps it under control, but even at stock speeds it's temps seem higher than they need to be... I'd say in this case it's more to do with the actual cooler and case airflow rather than the thermal paste. I'll be getting an i5-2500K in about two months, so I can get a few opinions of my own at that stage, but until then I can only go on other people's experiences...

    That line actually just got me thinking, a minor mod could allow a full water cooling setup quite easily in that case...

    That case already has space on top for two fans.. So you could quite easily mount the radiator outside the case on top, then drill two holes either in front or behind the existing fan vents (depending on the location of other components obviously) to run the water pipes down into the case. The fans would then extract air upwards out of the case as well as pushing air through the radiator. :) You could even get more creative if you want and make a nice looking black mesh cover for the rad..

    Now thats thinking out side the case...
