Since the Turbo is sized more like an ITX card instead of ATX, i was actually thinking about putting an Arctic Accelero Mono on it, maybe a Twin Turbo II, would it be worth it?

This thing is tiny without the blower!

 

Wow, that is a tiny cooler. I would maybe try just mounting a typical 120 or 92mm fan right on top of that heat sink. I bet you'd see decent temps without the noise of the blower.

Oooh yah, wow, didnt realise its cooler was quite that small. You could try slapping on a bigger fan, like MEC-777 suggested, :) 

 

I guess that any of the third party coolers would work wonders for you! Although i cant say i have any experiences with them, they can hardy do any worse :P 


Bleigh!  Ever hear of AC series?

I guess i could try it out! I have an Arctic F12 coming in the mail as well, for exhaust on the case, i'll hook it up to the card until i update the cooler.

Could you take a picture of the entire case and maybe one with the side panel off?

 

What case is it btw?

Fractal Design Define S I believe. Will have pics once I de-dust it again.

:) Okay, so you have questions. Questions are good. This case has a huge story behind it and a crazy history. It's also very, very hard to find in Canada. Frankly, it's not the best quality case but it's not the worst quality either. Only the front is plastic. It has been modified since I took that picture. The fan on the side panel is huge and provides good, quiet cooling. It is the only true pink, translucent fan I've ever seen. Alas, the leds are red. I actually ordered some true pink leds (yes, that's right, they exist) to replace them but it involves too much butchery and I am an old man with bad eyes. Originally, this case was to go to my wife who challenged me to find a pink PC for her. Then my second eldest daughter took an interest. Then I learned that the proprietary X58 board I wanted to install would not work in this case so it went back from the daughter to the wife who doesn't like Barbie dolls either. Keeping peace in the family was of optimum value. :::grins::: So as it stands, the 9 year old daughter is now about to get the Studio XPS 9000/435T. You can see it here >> http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Dell-Studio-XPS-435t-9000-MT-Core-i5-4590-3-2GHz-8GB-1TB-Win-7-Hm-1-Yr-Wty-/191983262866?hash=item2cb3181c92 << Which happens to be my old i7920 Bloomfield rig still running strong and proud but considerably modified. I'm using it even as I type. I did include a picture of the case with the side panel off somewhere in this thread but for your sake I'll include it here. 

 

I recently installed a NOCTUA NH-D15S to replace the Cooler Master unit seen here it but had to drop the pink side panel fan down in order for the door to fit. The EVGA gold 750 w psu leaves just enough room for the huge pink fan to slide down and remain vertical without attachment. The cooling on this Haswell chip is fantastic now. 

 

The open slot under the raid cage (running RAID 0 in SSD) now has a little spring-loaded drawer for the wife's knick-kncks, USB sticks, SD cards, dongles etc. She loves it.  

 

Oh, I forgot you asked what the name of the case was. It's an Apevia X-CRUISER 3. Those analog gauges actually work! :D 

 

Any idea how big the giant side fan is?  

I'm guessing a 200mm or somewhere close.  

 

EVGA does seem to make some decent PSUs.  I'm using a 750W B2 currently myself.  I don't need that much wattage but when I got it I think I only paid about $65 USD so it worked out well to get it.  Plus the lower load on the B2 vs it's rated wattage limit means it stays rather quiet even while gaming so far as I can tell.

 

Is the drawer custom made or did you buy it somewhere?

That's a pretty useful thing to have.  

 

The analog gauges are an interesting feature.  Even better that they work.

 

What are the PCIE cards that are plugged into the motherboard?  And what is the tiny fan in the motherboard for?

The fan is something they implemented for a lot of their sabor tooth boards. Supposedly cools components. There's a second one that cools the vrms too. The whole thermal armor thing.

Thing on top is a PCIe slot blower fan

next one down is a graphics card

then an older sound card

then what appears to be a USB card

then a sata card

and i cant tell what that last one is. 

 

The tiny fan on the mobo is just to cool off mobo components. You see heatsinks on a lot of other mobos connected by heat pipes, the sabertooths do that sort of thing too but with fans instead. IIRC theres still a little heatsink in there. Plenty of ways to skin a cat.

i think the final one might be a USB 3.0 card? not too sure though.

Thank you for the info.  

 

I just have my GTX 1070 and a ASUS wifi card plugged in so I don't have any experience with types of cards.  So when I saw all of these I had no idea what they were.

 

But why would you want to skin a cat?  ? lol

Very good! And good eyes too!  The last one is for the card reader. It runs directly off PCIe and gives a pseudo USB 3.0 option to the front of the case with the additional standard card slots. There's no shortage of USB options on this build as it has USB top, front and back. The Sata goes to to the RAID 0 in the front "cage" while on board is RAID 1 for storage. I had a real fun time configuring this so please don't ask me how I did it. lol That's one nightmare I don't wish to remember. Last I checked both raids still worked. All's well that ends well. I highly recommend LSI if you want to run different raids off the same board.

There is nothing wrong with being a console gamer, people are just over sensitive over it for reasons unknown. Anyhow, pretty sweet room you got there.

Even so it has a good clean look about it. My builds are never that put together lol I just sorta slop it all in and tie it off ;) 

 

I apologize for quoting the picture. (Although it's probably worth quoting.)

The pcie cables could use some cable combs or even some cable sewing but I can't be bothered to order some combs and I think I'm too retarded to get a grasp on cable sewing.

Have to agree, the S340 is one of the easiest cases to make a clean looking build in. ;)

That's why I'm strictly air cooling. Give them another decade and maybe they'll have it worked out. If you don't use water you don't have to hold your breath ;)

For once I'd like to build a system that looks at least as neat inside as yours but my problem is I will want to install half a billion components (okay, I exaggerate  — a thousand then) and by the time I'm done it's another spaghetti factory busting at the seams. lol :D
