    No trust me, it's not worth it. The extra gains you get compared with the fan speed needed is crazy. The setup seems good in theory, but in practice not so much. I had ultra kazes 35mm fans (not running at full blast of course) so even if you have the static pressure it's not enough.

    Now that you mention it I've also came across certain reviews and what not that also state they don't perform very well.

    i mean, if it performed good, then its a perfect solution for cases that only have room for dual rads,

    but yeah......i guess the flow gets weird when you make a setup like that?, but i dont know

    an update. As my rig sits ATM it looks like shit. But i had to do something to get my i7 crunching again. I am waiting for the barbs to setup my other rad. Once i get them in i will move some wires around so i can get the small rad(one in the pic) in there and a 120.2 both in there. Also will trim the tube,etc

    zip ties = cheap way of holding things in place and not letting them kink either :D

    seeing this thread makes me wish I had all my parts here, I cant wait till I can start to hack away at my case, and zip ties are like duct tape, ..you can repair just about anything with them lol

    what they said ;) nothing like a $1 anti-kink. Also using them on the rad because they are just temp till i get everything in then will be replaced by clamps but because of the barbs(i think fatboys) i don't have to even have anything on them for it not to leak just some extra safety
    It will be in about the same place and the 120x2 will be where it used to be. That is if everything works out.btw its a single 140mm :rolleyes:

    would it be possible to mount a 1.120 on that back case fan? that'd be a neat place to hang one.

    CP, I think you and I need to write up a Mission Statement for an Inpromptu Milita Group led by you and I that would read "Convert all others to WC, and convert those that WC into EXTREEME WCers, and the rest will be left to die..." lol

    where there is a will, there is a way. Time to cut the hole in the back of the case larger for a 140 fan :)
