    Hell yeah! I'd rock those fo sho:D now find them in the states?


    Yeah these temp tests were done with just one 285 card in the case. I will be running two of them when the build is finished and these cards run pretty inside the case so I am expecting temps will be way higher after final build....that is unless I run better/ more fans and/ or wc the cards.:p

    Well I've had my tubing and coils for a while, but I've been so busy with the holidays that I had to put the project on hold. I have also decided to throw another radiator on the rear fan mount because I intend to run low noise/rpm fans (maybe some Yate Loon's) in the case and the extra rad should help with temps. You can never have to many rads right?;)

    I bought two different shades of UV Orange coils too see which one matches my case paint the best.

    Look's good man! That black tubing is gonna look sick now with the orange and black theme! My i7 should be here tomorrow and my mobo should be here sometime next week :D Just gotta order some ram after christmas now and the build will be complete! Then just to change the color scheme of the case to black and red.

    nope, i can support that statement! especially if you want to go silent, more rad is never a wrong option. if i had the money, i would buy me triple laings,a heap of deltas/EBM papst and a 1-2 of the new moras, for each rig. ;)

    Now for the cosmetics!

    Ok, so I have two different colors of Orange coils and a set of UV cathodes or Orange Cathodes:

    This one below looks good on black tubing without lighting, but has no effect on the UV glow.

    However this one has a nice UV reactive color to it but looks dull and transparent on the black tubing without lighting.

    I have decided to NOT to go with UV cathodes and just use the non-uv Orange coils. That way I get the strong Orange color without the use lights.

    I think the darker orange non uv is closer to the color of your original setup. Nice looking:toast:

    and of that absolutely wrong colored noctua fan... another xig would be great... maybe a black smoke, with white leds, if you dont want the orange model again? ;)

    who doesn't like puke color fans?:laugh:

    I have another Orange Xig fan here, but my other goal with this build was the acoustics. The Xig fan on the side panel has a voltage resister on it to cut back on noise. For some reason the other Xig fan makes a loud humming sound. I am still exploring different fans to find the low noise-to-performance ratio. I am kinda getting over the fancy leds and stuff. I also have some Yates, Enermax and stock CM fans. I really want to check out some of those Gentle Typhoon.;)

    i guess the enermax are your best bet, as they have magnet bearings which are silent and very perfomant ;)

    I agree the Noctua fans don't match, but I was giving you credit for them being very good fans for radiators ;)
