Windows 7: Modifing old desktop machine in new case

28 Jan 2016   #61

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

The gpu though is because I swapped out the gpu
It did have my asus 980 and now I'm back with the evga 980 hybrid
The asus 980 is back in my x99 build I finally figured out why I couldn't use 144Hz resolution using a display port on it on my AOC g-sync monitor
Freaking asus gpu tweak issue

Using MSI Afterburner it works great

Best thing about this new cooler is it's stable it hardly moves from the shown 41/ 42c I guess that is the ambient or system temp ?

I'm also using the same 2-120mm PWM enermax fans

ambient temp is the temp of the room the computer is in. Your not going to get any colder than that with air or water cooling as long as your incoming air is ambient from the room.

My inside case air temp is 23.1C and the room temps 22C, with the system in my specs. The water in the cooling system is a 24.1C. CPU temps avg. high is 30C at this time.

Interesting it sure isn't 108.. degrees in here
75 degrees most the time :/

I don't understand your last post. Where are you getting the 108 degrees?

Please all temps in (C).

41c = 108 degrees :/

I presume that the cpu is running at 41C and that is a good temp for a cpu and your system.

Simple: At the present time.

Ambient temp. (room) 22C
CPU temp avg. high 30C
Inside case air temp. 23C

What is this telling me?
It tells me my cpu is running cool.
It tells me the case air flow is proper because the air inside the case is not much higher than the ambient temps in the room.
If the air temps inside the case are a lot higher than the room ambient temps more air flow in the case is needed. That means controlling where the intake fans are located, the path of the flow of the air through the case and where the air is exhausted.

The closer the room air temp are to the air temps inside the case indicates better case cooling.

You have to use a separate gauge to get the air temp inside the case.

Yea on realtemp I don't know exactly what core 0 and core 3 is really

Bios says 26c is cpu which is pretty close to what realtemp shows for core 1
I assume core 0 and 3 are system temps not cpu temps. or ambient either :/
You'd know what it is more than i
Air flow well I do have 2 front intake and the exhaust is out the top also with 2
All 4 are sp140's plus 2 120mm enermax blowing straight up though one of the sp140 exhaust fans

About all i could do with it the cpu cooler is massive so i had to ehaust it through the top instead of the back.

RealTemp is reading each core of your cpu. They should read close to each other. Within a 2 or 3 deg. C.

The point I was trying to get to; is that you could improve your cpu temp by improving your inside case temps. You control this by not only how many fans you have but also there location.

Controlling exactly how the air flow through the case. All the air in my case exhaust out the top. Six push pull fans. No place else. All other places for air to go are blocked. Air comes in the bottom, back and the front and has to go out the top.

Yep seems I need to get some more fan controllers
Right now I have 1 split with 2 fans on it same goes for the top exhaust

I believe that prevents the fans from using the full rpm's it's rated for I believe 1440rpm's max
The sp120's are rated at 2350 rpms :/

Some how my damn post is disappearing. I will try again.
I use a full 12 volts on all fans.
The radiators are 1650 rpm and the case fans are 1200 rpm. They are quiet.
Only your ears will be able to inform you if your fans are to loud at what speed.

I use a couple of these to measure air temps inside and and outside of the case.
When I did auto air conditioning they were a must. Fore me atleast. Inside and outside car temp along with humidity.
