*****Will my H440 overheat with this setup?*****

Recommended Posts

For fucks sake, stop making posts about this.

 

Your rig will run the game fine and it won't overheat.

Could you provide some evidence to this? Do you have any idea on what temps I would be expecting?

Well like I said. Air cooling is still a great option. Just pick up some good AF fans. ;)

Don't worry about cooling. IF cooling was terrible it wouldn't be this popular. 

Its just with threads like this (http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2289801), and the fact that the 780ti will add some heat, combine that with the restricted airflow of the H440 in general, and my nerves skyrocket lol.

Using a NH-D14 cooler on a i7 4790K at stock clock in the H440 they were getting 28-33c at idle, and 60-65c under load.

 

Add in the GPU and you will probably see temps around 30-35c at idle, and 60-70c under load.

 

You don't need to be making so many posts about this, if the case had terrible airflow then it would have tons of bad ratings or people would just not buy it.

This ^

IF the case was bad it would not be this popular. Not to mention the builds with it I see on PcPartPicker usually run at fairly normal temps.

But what would I be seeing with the H110? Lets say I am not happy with the case. What other case would fit my whole build and run cool? My build again is (http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/kfg6NG)

Look at the corsair air 540.

I meant the H110 AIO cooler from Corsair. 

I don't know.  I've never used a liquid coolant system.  It's my understanding, though, that they're better coolers than heat sinks and fans. 

 

This guy uses an H105 in this put-together video.   

  Starts around 14:30.  It's in there, so if space is your concern, compare sizes of the H105 to H110.

I've got the H440 with a Intel i7 4930K, thats 6 3.4Ghz cores. I've got a NZXT Kraken X61 closed loop water cooler on it, with it pulling air from the outside and blowing into the case, and it keeps it about 36 C IDLE, peaks at 60 C under extremely heavy loads. Like rendering complex 3D animation heavy. 

 

Also got two GeForce 780 Ti's with stock coolers inside this case. I prefer the stock coolers because they mostly blow all the hot air out the back instead of into the case. They each run about 38 C on idle, and peak at 70 C under heavy loads. Not super chilly, but well withing acceptable operating temperatures.

 

I found replacing the stock intake fans on the H440 with 3 Noctua NF-F12 static pressure fans made a big improvement, reducing the GPU temps by 5 C and lowering the noise considerably. Static pressure fans are ideal for the intakes as they are a bit restricted and airflow fans might struggle a bit.

Yes. But keep in mind, Unless you have quad SLI you will never run skyrim at 60FPS with tons of mods. You should get a comfortable framerate around 30-40. Maybe dips into the high 20s around grassy plains around Whiterun

 

Cuz optimization...
