    I recommend paints designed for cars they tend to be more scratch resistant then the regular sorts.

    I'm guess that most of you probably know it already, but there's one thing I wanted to share with you:

    Noctua's Customer support is totally sweet!

    I've bought NH-U12P in 09.2008r. I'm using only one fan, stock one (paired with their ULNA 900RPM adapter it's great). Lately I'm thinking about trying Push-Pull. AFAIK there should be 2 fan mounting kits included with the standard NH-U12P vesion, but the spare one is nowhere to be found. I'm not saying that I got only 1 while purchasing this cooler, probably I've just lost it among all those months.
    I've used their contact form with question if I can buy such kit, because I have only one and they wrote me back that they'll send it to me for free. All I have to do is send them some proof of purchase (just like the 1156/1366 mounting kits). That's what I call a customer support if you ask me! :rockout:

    AND I have a question it this matter - anyone tried using NH-U12P in push-pull config? Are there any significant gains?

    I can buy 500ml cans of spray for a single pound huzzah!

    Only comes in Black, Blue or Red.

    but still cheap as hell and it looks great, only downside is that it won't stick to aluminium to well.

    Well it put all back in a case, wiring isn't the best but stuff I have in it with no space to hide it is hard. I had to cut some things in the back to fit the GPU cooler and take the PCI bracket off the gpu:eek:

    yes i bumped 3dsages thread yesterday pointing out that i will be buying that NB block soon! hell ive noticed that with my board at default bios settings that the NB is getting over 60deg cel in the bios! im kinda scared on running it much

    One other thing. with just a dual rad and two 28CFM fans the I7 idles at 32 deg and with intelburntest running at max it doesnt get over 52 deg :) today i will be adding some better fans and put them in a diffrent configuration. i was wrong about the rad mounting right. it will mount inside the case but when you install the motherboard it hits the rad and will not bolt in. when i get some free time next week i will take my dremel and start cutting this new case up :)

    it will def look much better with the rad inside, so go and gut the case :pimp:

    Well its only running 28CFM fans and i still havnt got my second single rad in the loop yet so once i get my bay res (which i bought of anandtech last night) then i will mount everything inside except the rads. I just took it apart again and it doesnt have enough room between the motherboard so im guessing the Rads will have to stay outside of the case

    he could def do that, just cut off some of the HD cage,

    but if he dont want to do that maybe some 90degress fittings for the rad?

    Hmm ok don let me measure at the bottom.

    *EDIT*

    I measured and if i cut some of the harddrive cage out then i would give me alittle over 10 1/2 inches from the PSU to the front panel and my rad is 11 1/4 :(

    maybe i was too quick there, dont really seem like there is too much room in the buttom ? or is it just me

    thought so, just keep it on top, but maybe som 90 degree fittings on the rad ?

    So, while I couldn't wait to get those fan mounting kits from Noctua I've decided to make some ghetto montage for a few days. :D

    Here's how it looks right now:
    [​IMG]

    And as the case was open I've improved my cable management a little:
    [​IMG]

    One picture to shot the general appearance:

    And one night shot:

    Well, I know that using three kinds of fans doesn't look to good :)laugh:) but I must just get myself some more NoiseBlockers. :rolleyes:
