This is the H500P, a beautiful new member of Cooler Master’s high airflow family with dual 200 millimeter fans in the front for cooling. But that got us thinking: if 200 millimeters is good for cooling, then 300 millimeters must be better, so we got ourselves one of these Then we decided that was still too lame! So we bought a second one! This video is sponsored by Cooler Master! Let’s get to know the H500P a little better by building a sexy PC in it. Step one is to remove basically everything so it won’t get in your way during the rest of the assembly process. We’re gonna be installing three cooler master 140 millimeter RGB fans at the top of the case, so pre tap the screw holes on the table and then install them. Our Cooler Master MasterWatt 750 PSU will be powering up an Asus Prime X299 Deluxe with a Core i9 7900X 10-core under a Master Air MA 610P heat sink. For RAM, we used special edition Dominator Platinums, these heat sinks on top could come in handy later, and for our SSD, a KingstonKC400 one terabyte. Make sure to pull through the SATA cables and power for the video card now Before reinstalling the power supply cover since getting them through once the cover is in is much more difficult. For our GPU we went with a GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition in the showcase side mounted position that uses Cooler Master’s PCIe riser kit available separately. Finally, we just had to add some lighting, clean up the cabling a little bit with this handy panel Ah, that’s proffesional. and take some baseline readings so we’ll be able to quantify how our acoustic and thermal performance characteristics change once we complete our modifications. So now it’s time for what you guys have all been waiting for… Big Ass F A N S Whoo oh boy meet the Copis 12 inch blower fan, a one horsepower monster that can move a staggering 2,000 cubic feet per minute of air so our two of them are rated at an equivalent of: 81 Master Fan Pro 12 Air Flows, 24 blowey matrons, and, you guys know that meme PC made entirely of fans? Well, it’s about two and a half times even THAT. now obviously you can’t just screw these into your case so uh Now obviously you can’t just screw these into your case. So, uh… Cover your eyes, professional carpenters out there because we’re about to make ourselves a badass duct. First, we removed basically everything from our build. Then, we got to work measuring and creating plans for our custom shroud We used this heavy MDF for the project, mostly because we already had a bunch of it lying around in the warehouse, and started with a u-shaped piece that would sit up against the front of the tower. We asked Carpenter Extraordinaire George about the best way to cut it and… After a story about someone losing all of their fingers on a table saw, we decided that the best way was for him to just do it for us. For the fan holes we performed some more basic cuts. Then, we traced out where the fans would go, and after drilling a starting hole, jigsawed them out The rest was cut out by Alex using the circular saw, which became a lot easier once he actually HAD the circular saw. I borrowed it on the weekend, and I forgot to bring it back. I already apologized Anyway, after a test fit it was time for assembly. We used lots of wood glue and some pre-drilled screw holes. The finishing touch was a liberal application of wood filler, then there was some sanding required, and we ended up using this aggro sander because we couldn’t find the regular sander, followed by priming and painting before heading to the conference room, which is here, screwing the Cooler Master H500P and the duct together, sealing up the edges with duct tape, aand preparing to boot it up. So you managed to make the whole shroud, like, it’s fairly well crafted actually, out of MDF, you even, did you even like sand all this and everything?
Yep. And then you duct taped it on.
Yeah. Have you fired it up in here? No, I haven’t. So I just realized something really dumb; we no longer have front I/O and aand I don’t have a power button, so… Was this your idea or mine? Uh, I believe this was mine, it was like in my resume, like you asked for a bunch of ideas and one of them was this Yeah, I’m curious why the RGB isn’t on… that must have gotten disconnected at some point. How much pressure is there gonna be in here, like are we gonna end up over spinning like, our graphics card fan? What about the power supply? These are all great questions that I want to know the answer to as well… Are we even gonna be able to have both of these on one breaker? Like how much…
I think so Kay, you ready?
Yup. Okay, should we like tape that down? That’s actually really hard to hold. I know! I noticed. Okay is that gonna hold? Okay What?! Windows is updating! Look at this I feel like freakin Kate Winslet on the front of the Titanic *Linus screaming his lungs out horribly out of tune* Now this! This, my friends is what positive air pressure looks like. So it looks like on the CPU we’re getting like 55 degrees And before it was 74 I don’t know if that was my most responsible moment Okay, so we’re looking at about… Basically 90 decibels right now. How do I look? Pretty good. Oh my god. This is just dumb And it’s gone. Oh yeah! It’s working! IT’S WOOOORKIIIING!!! We’ve dropped ten degrees, in like, less than 20 seconds. That’s insane.
That’s incredible! Wow, that’s quieter this thing is… a beast, actually to an extent that even WE didn’t expect. The GPU results in particular were really impressive so all of the internal temperatures are exactly ambient as measured by our equipment, though even with fancy scientific tools I doubt that that would change much since the fans were moving literally the entire case’s internal volume every 0.037 seconds. Insane.
