what are the temps like now?

 

think your going to enjoy the speed of your new system now everything is working correctly over your old pc, that is a good system you've built and should last a good few years,  :thumbsup:

Just some little updates:

 

BF 3 Ultra Settings Metro Avg: around 95 FPS Min: 63 FPS Max: ~150 FPS

BF 4 Ultra Settings Metro AVG: around 80 FPS Min: 38 FPS Max: ~150 FPS

 

With my old system it ran much worse. I7 is a monster.

Just one little update:

I get again 95 Grad Celsius on Prime 95 ... but I will solve this issue by buying a new cpu cooler. :)

Nice FPS results.

Many go for the Cooler Master Evo but the Hyper 412 PWM is better, just watch clearance to the RAM. > http://www.coolermas.../hyper-412-pwm/

What do you think about Brocken? (Not Brocken 2 because the Max Height should be 160mm)

I want to buy also one more fan at the ground of the system with this size: 120 x 120 x 25 mm  (I want to build a system for the future)

 

Also, one additional questions, must be the fan of the PSU at the top or underneath? The fan is at the top of the PSU, I hope this doesn't create an error or something like that.

Sorry, don't understand.

 

Where do you want install the extra fan?

 

PSU fan.   If there is an intake vent in the bottom of the case? face the fan downso it draws in fresh air. if no intake vent, face the fan up.

Brocken = http://www.alternate...83?event=search

 

The extra fan should be at the bottom.

 

I will look at the PSU tomorrow.

 

Btw. isn't 95 Celsius too high also for a stock cooling system?

the psu orientation is governed by the case design, but it really doesn't make much difference if it's at the top or bottom, just it gets better cooling if it's at the bottom seeing how the coldest air is always at the bottom.

 

95c with intel stock cooler is what i'd expect when stress tested with prime and why i always recommend and most people who build their own pc's will buy and fit an aftermarket cooler.

 

the brocken looks like a good cooler judging from this review. :- http://www.eteknix.c...ooler-review/6/

performs better than the all in one water cooling options like the h55 i've used before on some systems.

The same review I looked at, there is an issue with tall Ram, please check RAM clearance.  > http://www.eteknix.c...ooler-review/4/

If you run Prime 95 for half an hour and your system did not crash, I consider that good enough for every day use, even for max gaming.

Have a read, then consider  using Core Temp to do your monitoring, > http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

I have used CoreTemp, but sometimes the system freezes for some seconds (?!). It just freezes when I open this program. (Every other tool works good)

 

I won't do any stress tests for now because it most gets near 100 Celsius and I don't want to damage my system. 

 

And don't worry, my RAM isn't that tall, one of the smaller models I think.
