Thank you! Mine is idling my FX 8350 at 19c which is pretty good actually for not having the fan pulling air directly from the outside.

That is a very impressive temp! What do you get at load?

What is your ambient temperature btw?

I haven't done any testing while at load yet. The temperature of my room when I had this running was right around 60f, I keep it cool because I can't stand heat thanks to the meds I have to take. This setup is in a Rosewill Rise case and I have 3 120 fans in front, 1 120 in back, and 2 140 fans on the side panel which helps with the overall temperature.

The only problem I have with this cooler is that I had to raise the voltage to the fan in the bios in order for both the fans to work. I don't know if that is something with this particular motherboard or with AMD boards or with Intel as well but having a fan extension cable would really help so I could plug one fan into a different fan header. It would be really nice if it had a SATA connection like the pump does with a dial or slider so you can change the fan speed to the speed you like.

M.2 SSD, right? Aren't you concerned about the heat with 2 graphics card on top of that? (That is the reason I didn't do it on my system and went with a SATA based SSD)

 

I'm going to give it a try, because I think the heat will be manageable.  The 2.5" SSDs don't have any active cooling and they are just a PCB inside an aluminum enclosure.  But if I'm wrong, I'll open it up and mount a cooling fan directing at it.   I'm also mounting everything in a CORE P-5 that's very open for air flow.

 

At least that's my madness at the moment!

I have a Core P3 for my main gaming system and I love the case. There is a huge issue with the PCIe riser cables they use but other than that the case is amazing!

My ASUS board has a bios control panel where I can adjust all the MOBO fan controllers.  Is that an option with your MOBO?

I really want one of those new Samsung M.2 SSD's for when I do my next build which will be using an AM4 motherboard with a Zen CPU and a Vega GPU. I hope I don't have to wait a lot longer for it!

Initially at least I plan to run my video cards in the traditional orientation.  I need to do this to run the radiator tubing from the hybrid cooler in an organized manner.  If that doesn't work, or if I have to consider NVMe M.2 heat issues I may try reorienting them with the riser cables too.

I couldn't find anything to adjust the fan setting other than the voltage. It has a program that you can use in Windows to adjust it but they have a problem with their Gigabyte App software that makes it not work with Windows 10 sometimes and I got lucky enough to have it not work of course.

I like how it shows off the GPU in that situation. I had them send me out 2 replacement riser cables and both along with the one that came with the case would randomly not let the GPU work. I bought a different one off Amazon for about $27 and it works perfectly fine. I told Thermaltake about that and they said they would forward the info about that other riser cable to the right department so hopefully they will switch the manufacturers.
