Its not noisy per say until I take the fans over 1000RPM which isn't needed for 24\7 use but the old fan which uses a sleeve bearing has a bit of a click to it.

While the new fan that uses ball bearings seems to make a bit more air noise when from reviews I thought it should make less.

This leads me to think that maybe some tabs on the front of the case that go past the tips of the blades for mounting a smaller fan could be creating some noise, so I may have to cut them off to find out.

Felt it was time for a little update after i finally stuck some heatsinks to my 1070 heat plate



Also installed a second 180mm fan on the rad FM181.

Being white looks a little funny.

It's such a tight fit the old AP181 had to be offset to avoid the other side of the case but there isn't enough room between the AP181 and the GPU to use the other mount plate anyway.



I'm not sure what to make of the noise differences yet and just how much of it is due to the different mount positions in the case

For hci i find 400% is the minimum when running 8 instances at once with ~1777mb each so that all threads are covered and all ram is used I like to leave it run overnight so that each has 1200 coverage just to be sure

but it will usually find any bad errors in the first 50-200%

I find hci is very heavy on the cache and is great for finding errors related to the memory controller but a bit slower than linux gsat for finding memory related errors

i ended up deliding my 3770k with vise hairdryer method after i found the gap wasn't big enough to get a blade in

had to smash the crap out of it with the hammer till it flew out of the vise ripping chunks out of the ihs and knocking one of the chips for the igp off the back

eventually got it with some minor damage to the pcb edges

i like to put the ihs back on these days its just safer and easier to make sure the cpu is getting good contact in the socket with lga


still have some liquid ultra left to go under there if i feel like pushing harder but i don't think i would gain much with this cpu
