Great choice on the fans, they perform so well, they are a little noise but a worthy trade off IMO.
Im running 2 in push pull on my megahalem for my CPU at like 10v. They are pretty damn quiet. I also have 4 of the AF series as case fans. Again, very quiet even at full tilt 12v
I have 4 AF120s that aren't bad either; if I was gonna get em again I would go with the SPs though. But they just look good too, with the rings to accent the edges
The SPs and AF are meant for 2 different cooling solutions. AF is for air flow(perfect for case fans), and SP is static pressure to push air through radiators and heatsinks.
Thats true but they're also quieter.
They still have good air pressure for less fpi radiators too. Just not sp air pressure.
Depends on if your talking QUiet versions or not. My SPs are noticably louder then the AFs
I am kind of wishing I got 1/2" tubing though. I'll move up to bigger tubing when I add the CPU too the loop
Project Blue Virginity.
I just need to get the mods to get the title to actually change.
Today im going to probably do some of the stuff I can do without putting it all in the system. Like putting the pump in the res and stuff like that. Still waiting on dremel parts to do some case hacking and such.
You got your loop all planned already and this isn't for your case, but the same layout. Still thought I would share.
someone modded their 500r so much that they put a 360 rad in the front. That looks sweet. I think what im going to do though when I add my CPU to the loop. is get a thick 120mm rad like the XSPC RX120, and go
I think what im going to do though when I add my CPU to the loop. is get a thick 120mm rad like the XSPC RX120, and do this.
Instead of those hdd cages you should find one of these and put it in a push pull configuration with those corsair sp's.
Im looking at the BitFenix individual sleeved extendsions, but jesus they are really long!!!
Sleeve your own wires. will be far cheaper, and better electrical power.
I dont trust myself doing the 24pin. And how would it be better electrical power?
Hmm I have never heard that but I guess less crosstalk/noise as they arent all bunched together?
Anyway looking good so far dude! Yeah go for Real Man's 1/2" tubing . Heh it just looks better generally I think and also better flow though the temp diff would be nominal at best. Is harder to work with though in tight spaces. You also need new fittings then too. Got a kill coil or something for anti-microbial?
I think you may be the first guy I've seen who is starting with GPU cooling.
next year when i upgrade procs, Ill add CPU to the loop. with a VERY fat 120mm rad.
I don't see any HDD's. I suppose if you're running an all SSD setup, you could velcro them to the back of the mobo tray.
Watercoolering is kind of a mute thing these days with the advances in air cooling and smaller lower votage dies but non the less I believe it looks great!
yeah thats the only thing haha! I have 4 drives haha! 1 DVD drive, and a fan controller.
If I had that case and went that route, I'd just move a single cage to in front of my PSU. It would be super easy.
Well my first rad that came with a used complete loop was this fat ass XSPC 220 and, frankly, it didn't seem to make a very noticeable difference over my regular little Swiftech MCR-220 I bought later. But maybe you have some other data. Definitely harder to work with that behemoth as well, though.
And like I said, get a kill coil then you can just use distilled and not worry about algae growth, which is possible unless you change your water every couple months (gets to be a pain). Can toss in res or even inside a tube (can bend the coil in or out to fit snug).
Today is the day. Ill have a ton of pictures coming later. I hope I have everything.
I was so surprised when I received my first kill coil and saw how small it was. I don't know why, but I was expecting it to be bigger (thats what she said)
I hope it goes well; nothing is worse than missing something and not being to finish. Looking forward to the pics
