Does anyone know if the Cooler Master V10 Hybrid TEC will fit in the Cooler Master HAF 932? I really want this CPU cooler but don't know if it will fit -_-. Thanks!

check documentation, there r dimensions specs (check newegg) measure your case.

that wasnt hard was it?

I have good money it will fit, the HAF 932 is a dam big case, but yeah check the specs,and even if worst came to worst there is always a way to make it fit *holds dremel* :D

Thanks guys. I didn't realize newegg had the dimensions. Meh.

I have one and I'm very disappointed! I have a i7 920 and no OC it's sitting at 42c. I'm looking at getting something else. I have a Coolermaster Cosmos case and it barely fits.

I read quite a few reviews and they all seemed to really like it. That sucks man. I'm really on the fence about it... Many seem to like it but some say it sucks...plus it's expensive :\.

Imo, save the money and get a good water cooling set up.

Wouldn't a good water cooling set up cost a lot more?
March 3, 2009 6:00:36 PM

I'm considering getting one of these as well, I think people were giving it bad reviews because it only activates the TEC when temps get high, it's designed with a controller that won't let it reach temperatures that may cause condensation. Might be part of the reason people were complaining about the idle temps, I'd pay more attention to the load temps.

Yes, but not by much compared to this.

Water cooling.... expensive? Depends.... on what you want and YOUR capabilities.....If you are unable to design and fabricate the system, then ... yes it can become expensive. I designed and built my custom hybrid water/pelt cooling system for under $175.00 U.S and it keeps my OC’ed (4.2GHz) E8400 @ 16C idle and 38C full load with the ambient temp @28C ..... I am currently working on getting a Patent on the design and the electronic controller that I built.

the tec used in it is pathetic, a good tec for a dual core has to be 250w+ and 400w+ for a quadcore, the one use in the v10 is either a 70w or a 50w, so for good overclocking it hinders the performance, i look at something like the true or xiggy. put it this way i wouldnt use a 70w tec for my northbridge.

sorry it doesnt hinder performance, but wont increase it by much either.

Exactly what does the electronic control do?

Well shabaa, I clearly do not have the experience required to build a custom water cooling system. The one you built sounds really great though if it can keep the chip that cool! Considering my lack of experience and the collective cooling performance knowledge of all you guys, which cooler then should I buy? I'm really not sure... Thanks.

Kortex, don't worry about Shabba, it's an oddity in the WC world to use peltiers. It still is out there, no worries.

You want Air cooling for a cpu at under $70? Go air cooling. Other wise read................

Building a WC system isn't that hard. Read a few weeks to learn the lingo and what most systems like yours need for watercooling ans start to participate as youyou build your parts list, it isn't rocket science at all.

WC is more expensive, double if not 2.5 the cost. And 4x the setup time. And 10x to learn before you go WC. But it's really pretty basic. Decide what needs cooled, like ram, haha no need. How much rad and what type of rad do you need to cool xx amount of heat. Only 2-3 pump picks, that's easy. Bit more dealing with flow rates and case setup, thats it.

Shabba is elite or wants to be, forget the post he made. Woot, an E8400, dual core etc. He's on the verge of being obsolete already.

Here is a buttload of links, my paste and cut for almost a year now. Read, become a member, have fun, learn. Don't rush. Read the last 20-50 posts on OC Forums, every single one from start to finish, get bored? Too bad, ya gotta learn.
.........................................................................................
For your benefit please spend a few days reading a LOT. At the busiest places for WC masters. Guys who have done it for YEARS at OC forums and xtreme forums. It took me a while (I was OCing on air, aftermarket stuff, bios settings, best chipsets etc etc) to learn the language and the tricks to a easy install.

Don't expect miracles or SUPER DOOPER over clocks. What you will get is a quiet system that can handle OC to the max of your hardware IF you buy quality and buy smart. And minor maintenance too, a bonus for the water cooler.

Also while there please read on case mods etc. The radiators are not for small cases, pumps and hose routing, wire management and other things are important. Google your planned case and the word water-cooled in one line. You might get lucky.

IF you just cool your CPU and your NB if you want, you can get by with a 120.2 sized radiator (RAD). And MAYBE fit in inside depending on your mod skillz. You want to cool your GPU too, you'll need a 120.3 sized rad, and it probably won't fit inside. The rear external rad really works great. No matter what your adding 15lbs to your PC, maybe 20lbs.

Once you got an idea of what is good/bad then start getting your system for WC put together and we'll be glad to help.

That depends on point of view (no offense to you btw). It depends on how often OP is willing to clean out his rig. One probably should clean out the dust,etc from the rads every 2 months, and drain and re-fill the water every year. With how much dust you have and where the PC is placed this is not a problem. I have a few of my PCs on carpet, and enough dust collects on the fans to increase temps by about 1-3C (I know it's not much; but I want max performance) in about 2 months.

Any ways, +1 for Conumdrum. (Conumdrum: If you have a few minutes to spare, please PM me, I plan to make a water block for my E2180 based PC and I have not done this before, but I have researched (read/seen the sticky at xs). I would like some input on a few designs that I have in mind and manufacture method; I already have a few D5 pump, and two heater cores lying around (got 4 heatercores from e-bay, new, two are being used to cool Q6600 and a E8400 over at my uncle's place)

Wow thanks, I'll have to spend a few days reviewing all this stuff. That's a buttload of information. My goal is 0 deg. Celsius at idle. Just kidding. Thanks again!

If I'm not going to be overclocking much, would water cooling really give me that much of a gain. I really want to watercool, but it seems like so much of a hassle. I've built my own systems for as long as I can remember, but have never water cooled...

^If you arn't OCing to the max good air cooler will do (ie V8, S1283,etc). Use WC for max OCing and/or quietness.

Hey Tex, you should try and re-set the V10 cause i have one on the same chip overclocked to 4.0ghz @1.325v and i idle at around 22-24 degrees celcius idle and 65 full load,so something has to be wrong somewhere, maybe a bad TEC on the heatsink.
