Thread: Raidmax Smilodon Extreme BLACK Edition




  1. #1

    Default Raidmax Smilodon Extreme BLACK Edition

    I got bored and thought I would try some simple case mod for my first go around.

    I have a Raidmax Smilodon Extreme Edition case.

    I applied Flat Black paint to the interior of the chasis as the stock Gray was UGLY.

    I then added a 120mm fan to the top of the case. I used a 4x4 piece of drywall patch screen painted black as a barrier. I used a 3/4 hole saw and a 7/16 drill bit to perforate my case.

    It was fun and took about two hours. One thing though, the fan I bought is getting returned, it is LOUD. Guess I will have to order something quieter... maybe with a speed controller too.....


    The smurf tubing I added to the wire harness when I first built the system. And that is a MassCool 92mm HSF I installed a couple months ago.

    Woot! According to HWMonitor, at Idle, it brought my Sys Temp down 3C and my CPU temp down 6C to 24C@ 333x9. My Core Temps are the same but my GPU temp is down 6C at 36C. Can't wait to see what happens under load.

    Running FaH GPU I used to see temps of 45 to 47C, 50C after a few hours, after 30 mins I am at 38C.

    Prime Blend went from 48C down to 41C. But that was a short test too. I will have to stress things out with some gaming tonight and see what happens.


    I wonder what would happen if I turned my rear 120mm fan around to supply air...?

    At 4GHz (445x9) my idle temp is down ~6C at 35C...

    My Load temp, Prime Blend, is down ~7C at 50C.

    After letting FaH GPU and FaH CPU run all night and all day long my temps are CPU 35C and GPU 55C they used to be 45 - 48C CPU and 65 - 70C GPU.

    That represents an average of a 22% temp drop....
