We have the same motherboard and I was also thinking of buying the HR Judging by one of the pictures, it’s unclear whether there’s enough room at the bottom.

Antec NSK-3480: 80-Plus Case
While running Prime95 the temperature never exceeded 60 degrees, I think the processor has some kind of thermal protection which reduces the frequency. Inspired by other Antec builds on this forum I decided to build my own single fan system. See if you can buy a used HR plus. Because some photos are not showing, here is the link to the complete set on Flicr: The Antec is a well built case and has enough space for the Thermalright HR passive cpu cooler.

I was going to build the similar system with NSK, however finally given up since the optical drive can’t be fit into the upper chamber with the presence of a longer than ATX PSU such like X We strongly recommend reading the older review as well as this one. You can consider replace it with a lower speed and better quality fan from Scythe or Noctuan before trying other method.
Previous topic Next topic. Cable management proved a bit more difficult that I had expected, but I am quite happy with the result. I think my only chance at this point would be to ask someone who already tried this set-up before. I just might go for an “almost passive” set-up like yours.
Below is the test result of my “2-fan” system. Mon Apr 25, Antec NSK from the antsc page. Page 1 of 1. Currently I don’t have a separate videocard installed but because I don’t use my system for games I have not missed it yet because the Intel HD that is built in the Core i7 k processor is quite fast.

It is on the lowest setting and I have fixed the fan with Ultra-Soft Fan Mounts but there is quite a lot of swooshing coming from the air. Thu Nov 17, 8: I might cut out the fan grill or add some kind of dampening material to the case.
The room temperature has gone up to 25 degrees and the CPU now idles at 35 degrees which is fine by me considering the low noise level.

Are you talking about Tcase single value measurement of CPU case or Tcore 4 values corresponding to each core? It 34880 much smaller than the HR and according to Mike Chin it actually performs slightly better when used passively.

Or it might be possible to construct a chimney to enhance natural airflow – according to the Wikipedia formula, unless I made a mistake in my calculations, a 14×14 cm chimney with a height of m should be able to provide 34800 draft equivalent to a low-speed fan.
