wait - what? how is that radiator mounted? where does the heat exhaust?
The radiator acts as intake the exhausts out the top and back. There are vents in that part of the case. See the newegg link.
Also is 65C the max temp of the GPU while truly maxed out, pushed to its absolute limit?
That was during the 3D Mark 11 process. Probably not the absolute max.
There were comments in Comenoplz's "First Build" that stated that locating the rad where it was - same location as you have it (& where I planned to locate mine) was not a good idea. "Disaster waiting to happen". IYO is this accurate. I have my parts and am starting my build and this is worrying me. Thanks.
I can't seem to find the build you're referring to. I've had it up there since first assembly - no problems at all thus far. What were the potential disasters?
Sorry this is so late. Totally forgot about this page.
Is the N600 a quiet case or is loud with the fans?
It can only be as loud as your fans are but ultimately, in this model, I'd say it leans more toward ventilation than noise insulation.
Did you try to mount the radiator on the top of case? If so, why did you not settle on that as the final location?
It got in the way of the cpu power supply plug.
What's your build story on this one, fella? No description makes me wonder why this build isn't orange or maybe the team colors of the Sixers...
(References for those puzzled. Orange Julius. Dr J.)
What do you want to know? I'm bad a free-writing a description.
I just liked the name. I also didn't really have the technical know-how to set up an aesthetically pleasing build.
As far as aesthetically pleasing and tech know-how, shoot man. That radiator placement is awesome, the wires look good and the setup as a whole is great. You did well.
Ah the description! Ok as an example of fun to read descriptions....
"I present to you Julius. So named in honor of the Roman leader Caesar of old. He was a awe inspiring leader who's prowess is known around the world. Cut down in his prime by the people he fought to protect and enslave depending on how you look at it. This build is older generation power, hence the name!
During the build while determining the radiator placement I found that it could be positioned as seen in the pictures in a peculiar space. It took some patience, but produced an excellent out of the way effect I have not seen before in pc builds. I am very proud of this machine and hope you enjoy this presentation."
Something like that :) other folks have their parts selection reasoning and ratings, but the stories just read better. Even if they don't have the fluff at the beginning about a ancient leader or whatever.
Btw feel free to cut that story and use it as your description if you feel like it.
Alright, dude. I like your build. Got my +1.
