Looks great, subscribed!

Also, I presume you're going to make that cable black? :D

Thanks Thrackan on the kind words.

I'm thinking of the color of the cable for it now.. I'm thinking of it to be silver or black..

Man, does time

Fly.... :roll:


Well, It's been awhile since I did something to the MM.. The i7 860 is screaming water, so Now I am needing the case.. lol

So, the revival of the MM case.

Things going on:

I getting rid of the EVGA FTW board. May go with the Gigabyte ud7, but still thinking of Msi board.. The EVGA board was great.. but, want to try something else.. I think the MSI might do me right, but still don't know yet..

Since I'm getting rid of the FTW board, I'll need to get something to cover the hole..
So, Fan controller?
Sounds like a good idea?


  • Frozen Q res with a DDC pump?
    Or
  • Koolance pump top/res combo to use on my D5 pump?

I'd have the DDC pump Fitted to go straight onto the Frozen Q res. That way there isn't a swap on things.. Tubing not needed.

  • Should I keep the Scythe 110cfm fans?
    Or
  • Genital Typhoon fans?

I'm thinking of keeping the 110cfm fans so that I can wire them to a fan controller.. But, I don't quite know..

After all that, It's my special thing I'm thinking of doing.. Something that only I know about.. should look sweet after it's done.. Just gotta find out what board I want.. lol..

120x38mm fans have more CFM and higher static pressure. this means more air will make it through the rads at a higher velocity than if you used 120x25mm fans.

im a fan of the EK res myself.

D5's are ok and so are DDCs. i cant comment on them because im partial to iwaki.

fan control is ok but i ditched the idea of it long ago.

use high CFM 120x38mm fans and regulate voltage or use PWM fans. a custom wire job will result with better control than using off the shelf devices.

if you need any help just let me know.

Thanks fits for your thoughts.. I really don't want to use a Fan controller myself, but I got a nice size cut in the back panel, was where the ecp panel was going to be coming out of.. So, trying to think of a thing to "cover" it up or what not..

I'll look into the fan thought. Not hard to do, just don't know if i'll go threw it all on this thought.. I'll message ya on what I'm thinking of doing after I finish this.

Anymore to throw? Changes people think that might make me want to restart this?

I'd have to agree with FIT. The 110's you have are great for flowing as case fans or something, but in a rad they are not that great at all. The Gentle Typhoons actually get more through the rad I believe. Either add a shroud to them or get 120x38mm as FIT stated.

Will do...

Now, if I do that, should I add the blue fans for the top? like the front, or keep it black?

ideally you want to keep all fans the same or similar.

that way you have balanced airflow.

its also easier to manage as far as speed regulation goes.

Right on that factor.


I'm doing, so far, a "blanket" effect on it all.. didn't think it would matter on it.. the front fans aren't doing a thing since there isn't anything to cool in front of the case. I also, have the two 140mm fans at the bottom to blow upward..

All right guys.. I got fans coming in,

San Ace 109R1212H1011 fans for rad
I got a Koolance CPU 360 block
Got the Koolance pump top/res combo coming from FrozenCPU.

So, once I get it all, I can rebuild the set up. Now, it's just that one little thing. That ONE LITTLE thing..


The hole I cut for the ECP Panel. :banghead: Man, I was stupid... lol..

So, how can I fix that?

:Banghead:

Well, I got 3 from Binge for a great price. Might still get ya on your 3 once I see how they do.

Man, I need a list of your "stuff".. lol..


I'll grab a picture of the hole when I get home. Working for a bit longer.

as long as you got a deal its cool..Just dont get ur fingers in them while they are on (gonna lose a finger, seriously)

And be careful as to their power draw (there arent a lot of controllers that can handle them)

Its hard to explain to others that havent had them, their motor assembly is 1000X more powerful than a regular/simple fan like the Slipstreams..(or Silenx or just about anything else)

Yeah, I know their makes. been studying to make sure they where a good buy.

Now, I'm home I can show you what the screw up I did.

I would make the hole a bigger oval and mount a pair of 80mm exhaust fans there
Like this

It dosent have to have fans, I used mine to just be an equalizer of air pressure (no fans)

To make a nice hole just punch 2 holes with a hole saw than cut out the center and voila a perfect oval.

Then I need some measurements to do so. I'm off this weekend. Got $85 in home depot gift cards, so might have to play a little.. :roll:

get a 3" hole saw than you will have it to make 80mm fan cutouts in the future
