I have a Thermal Take Soprano and was wondering if its stock fan provide enough airflow? It has 1 120mm intake (front) 1 120mm outtake (rear) and 1 92mm side intake. I also jurryrigged a 80mm antec tricool up the front to push stagnent air forward, i also put a generic 120mm underneath my gcard to try and help cool it. Is this enough airflow for overclocking? Thanks Kais246
kais246 Is this enough airflow for overclocking?
It depends on what your temps are.
Does your case have room for more intake or exhaust fans? If not, try and find some with more airflow if your temps are too high.
And what the rest of your hardware is. FWIW, I had the same chassis, and my temps with the below hardware never reached higher then 40 Ambient. However after I moved over the my Spedo Advanced Package+ there hasn't been an ambient temp higher then 24C
I would suggest you pick up some Yate Loon mediums. They run around $5 and are quiet (same fan as the Nexus medium which costs $20)
If you are going to be overclocking your CPU i would recommend replacing the the heatsink with something a lot better like a Xigmatek. It really is worth the extra $40 to make sure everything stays cool.
Um, did I miss something? I don't remember him mentioning Xigmatek...
Well, he cant be overclocking with a stock HSF now, can he?
Obviously not, but Apollo's post made it sound like someone had already mentioned Xigmatek, which is why I was initially confused. I'd vote for a TRUE. Rather standard at this point, but it's still one of the best out there.
yeah, the TRUE is nice but the base generally sucks and its 2x as much as a Xigma not to mention it doesn't come with a fan.
