15.03.2008 12:28 Jipa"because I can" damn I love that explanation for doing things :D
15.03.2008 11:56 GSXI wouldn't be able to prove that it helps with temps, but it seems to make sense. It does quiet down the wind noise from the fans. It probably lowers the pressure too. I just use them because now there is space :D
15.03.2008 11:53 JipaAh indeed there's also the blindspot normally. I've just read somewhere that the fans create turbulence that settles when there's a gap between the fan and the rad. Dunno how much this effects the real-life performance though.
15.03.2008 11:43 GSXSolid, ok I found it. You're right, that is extreme. I wouldn't want a monstrosity like that running 24/7. Looking really sick tho.
15.03.2008 11:42 GSXJipa, I'll look for them a bit later. But the proof is in the dust.. When there is no shroud, there is a clean spot under the fan motor where the air doesn't flow. When you add a shroud, the dust is nice and even across the rad :p This leaves you with more used cooling area.
15.03.2008 11:39 GSXSolid, What kind of chiller?
15.03.2008 11:15 JipaDo you have some statistics of how much those spacers improve airflow/noise?

15.03.2008 10:43 s0lidHeha my watercooling will be little more "xtreme" than this :D
15.03.2008 09:16 GSXIt is used to get rid of noise, if you run at stock speeds. This is on the extreme side as I'm going for a 24/7 4Ghz quad. Those fans are going to be on a controller anyway.
15.03.2008 08:53 Teppisumm.. annd isn't watercooling used to get rid of he noise? Orr. get rid of the most of the fans? :P
