Here's more info on the temps and overclocks guys.

The top fans are in push, bringing air into the case and the front are pull, taking air out.

The top fans spin at 1000RPM and the front fans at 1200RPM.

Here are the tests I did just after finishing the build back in October last year

All temps are at an ambient of 28C - 30C and recorded temps are the max I saw after 1 hour of stress testing on the CPU and the GPU just by doing the benchmarks.

CPU - i5 3570K - 4.4GHz at 1.31v (I also had to bump the LLC from ultra high to extreme and did see the voltage jump to 1.336 when stress testing)

Idle - 35C
Load (Prime 95 Small FFT and Blend) - 96C
Load (OCCT large and small) - 85C

GPU - R9 290 - 1150MHz Core, 1500MHz Memory

Stock Temps and Scores

GPU Idle 32C

Valley extreme 1080p

FPS - 56.4
Score - 2358
GPU Temp - 54C
CPU Temp - 73C

Heaven extreme 1080p

FPS - 50.4
Score - 1269
GPU Temp - 57C
CPU Temp - 73C

3D Mark Fire Strike Normal

Score - 8472
GPU Score - 10061
GPU Temp - 56C
CPU Temp - 80C

Overclock Temps and Scores

GPU Idle - 32C

Valley Extreme 1080p

FPS - 67.1
Score - 2809
GPU Temp - 61C
CPU Temp - 73C

Heaven Extreme 1080p

FPS - 59.5
Score - 1498
GPU Temp - 61C
CPU Temp - 75C

3D Mark Fire Strike Normal

Score - 9800
GPU Score - 12057
GPU Temp - 58C
CPU Temp - 80C



I also played Watch Dogs for 30min maxed out at the time with overclocks and GPU was around 61C and CPU around 68C according to MSI Afterburner while I was playing.

However I then lowered the CPU overclock to 4.3GHz at 1.26V and temps only reached 85C no matter what I throw at it.

Around 60C on the GPU and 68-70C on the CPU when gaming with overclocks is all good to me at 30C ambient with the fans spinning pretty low at 1000 and 1200 rpm.

Thanks for checking out my build.

Alex


Cheers,

Alex
