Very nice. I'm becoming a fan of RAM fans, although I think more for aesthetic than practical reasons.

Yours looks very cool. :cool:

That is a sick Evo my friend, excellent c/m and I like the white cathodes on the white fans! Did you sleeve the cables yourself or have them custom done? (extensions?)

Hey guys got a question for all you NZXT case owners. Are the stock fan's any good? Im going to have mt h50 with ultra kaze 2000's as the rear intake and ill have my stock rear exhaust for a top exhaust along with the other stock 140mm. Then ill have the stock side intake running cool air into my 2 8800gts's and then the stock intake on the front bottom.

Is this gonna be a ok fan setup, and would it be worth it to upgrade all my fan's to something like this or some r4's?

I'm running those Xiggy fans on my H50 intake and side panel right now.:p The Xig fans move a lot air but IMO are kinda loud. The stock Nzxt fans are decent and I believe they use a sleeve bearing which can over time cause an annoying sound (or at least that's what my stock Nzxt fans did,)

Those look pretty sweet! How about a dark shot? How do those fans illuminate? Also why did u take off your fan filter on the side intake?

I dug up a couple pics of the xig fan for ya.....quality not so great, but you get the idea;) I took the filter off for more air flow.

Does taking the fan filter off actually allow for that much more airflow? Im thinking I need to do this when I get my second 8800gts cause those things are gonna be smuggled together and could use the airflow they can get :)
