Mugen 2 + Gigabyte UD3R + i7 920 Experience + Photos
I just received my Mugen 2 rev B and I love it (with arctic silver 5)
the installation process was just fine so I thought I might share my experience with you here
*And also I'm ready for any better suggestion to air flow
My specs are
Gigabyte UD3R motherboard
i7 920 D0 @stock
Gigabyte Setto 1000 Chassis
and Mugen 2 fitted better than I was imagine
I followed the installation process as this video exactly
and also the drawings in the installation guide that came with the Mugen were pretty useful
Ambient temperature is: ~24 C
Sorry that I didnt get screen shots of the temps before the Mugen but it was ~53 idle
Here's some photos of the Mugen 2 rev B installed:
(Sorry for low quality they were taken by iPhone 3G )
I can close the chassis well no problem at all and no fans were removed from the chassis
Now screens from Speedfan after installation @stock and ambient temp is 24
(Notice that Arctic Silver is applied just today and I heard that it may take 8 days or something to work as expected
is thats right ? )
Load (with prime95):
Now I have 2 question:
What do you think about my temps are they okay or high ?
This is an image for my airflow, did I installed the mugen correctly or should I change something to improve the airflow ?
Also which will be better, my chassis is opened or closed ?
Should I think of overclocking or not ?
And adding a second fan will be useful or what ?
waiting for your replies

Thanks for your reply Oli.
I closed the case and I guess I will leave the airflow as it is.
Linx works great it makes the temp up and down so I guess it will make that thermal paste work better in less time.
Concerning Overclocking I have easy tune which makes overclocking lot easier for me and I dont want to reach imaginary clock but I guess 3.2 or 3.6 GHz will be more than great for me.
My Gigabyte Setto 1000 has no room for anything really :S
it's so small, Actually I was worry before buying the Mugen 2 that it wont fit
but it fitted great and I really love it
so I cant arrange cables the way I want but I will try to group them or something
