    no matter what others say about them, for the price you pay they sound good as they do, plastic maybe but not cheap plastic, ok the sub is wooden tho :D (for using on a Realtek ALC no need to pay for more (or a SB Audigy FX as i have :roll: )

    Always wondered about the actual noise rating on those things since they debut in their PR. are they any good?

    Those AeroCool fans have good specs.

    I used Enermax TB Silence fans on my latest build. (two 120mm)

    Really like the color choices you have done. That 540 mixed white and black with that slick silver fan controller and the blue LEDs on both is just fantastic!

    TBH i have two enermax TB fans on my build front and rear and they're a bit loud for my liking but i had to have the white led's on them to light up my case. im actually thinking of just replacing them with a couple more NB multiframes putting in a cathode and calling it done

    I like mine. I have 120mm and 140mm Enermax fans in a few of my builds.

    This case has smoked glass side panels and it's pretty quiet with the two 120mm TB Silence fans in it. The GTX-680 isn't too loud in there either. No LEDs in it yet. Maybe later on.

    I have to admit that I like the way the TB Silence fans look with this case. It's a match.

    sooo i said i hate corsair and specially their AIO ... but what do i do when i get a free H60 (v2) from my local retailer when i buy a ASUS Fonepad 7 (K00Z) as a fidelity gift ... well i prefer the Seidon 120v because it is 53chf instead of 79.80chf for the H60v2 but "free" is cheaper than 53chf, right? (ok i have to admit i prefer the tubing of the corsairs ... refresh and i serie ... ) well i guess i will install it later.

    a pics to make you wait patiently until i decide what to do ... (i wonder if on the 2 top fan i could do: back one intake above the H60 SP120, front one exhaust above the RAM slot without getting too much interference in the airflow ... )

    sheesh the Fonepad camera is ... duh ok no flash and 5mPix instead of the bloody good one i had with my Razr i ... :D i guess it's time to take out the Canon SX100iS again

    good idea... if all my retailer weren't out of stock of the 120v :cry: i have to say the mounting of the Seidon is a bit better than the 2 hook of the H60 but eh... still better than a Katana 4 (tho i will re use the 4 short screws of my previous 120v to fix the rad to the case, now that i am checking the case i see Corsair said the Carbide Spec-01 is compatible with the H60 but the top screw for closing the front door is damn right on the top of the rad, i need shorter screw otherwise it will scratch the top cover o_O)

    I have an H60 cooling an i7-2600K. I put two Cougar Vortex PWM fans on it. (push/pull)
    It's been on there for a while, works great.

    They are not that bad, I mean personally I have had one go bad out of 5 but that was a DOA. So I would give it a whirl, or sell it and buy exactly what you want. They do not give me much clocking room but they are pretty quiet with a gentle overclock.

    what i hate is their price ... i mean c'mon Corsair ... 26.80chf more for a H60 v2 over a Seidon 120v and no gimmick to justify the premium? at last a H100i has some little trick to win over a Seidon 240L (but not over a Nepton 280L who cost exactly the same price where i am ... but not fitting in my case, meh i plan to get a C70 Arctic White since my build is named DW-Shiro and as "shiro" in japanese means white :D but not before the 2nd week of august, the carbide will replace my NZXT Nemesis for housing my retro AXP build) in the end you can say it's the "you get a free H60 v2 if you buy for over 100chf goods from our shop today as a fidelity gift" who overruled my hate :roll:

    i had a H60 (v1) pump failed but it was a 2nd hand and i pretty much suspect the previous owner for the failure, and a H70 who never failed, failure with corsair (pump tubing and such) are kinda situation dependent (low ambient humidity and high temp made the tubing of a H100i from a friend crack a little on both ends.)

    pics will follow once i find back my Canon ... :D here goes: (as you can see if fitting the fan on the case before the rad : i would have to remove one of the top fans ... and nope no way i would do that.)
    IMG_0002.JPG IMG_0003.JPG
    IMG_0005.JPG

    also i re routed some cables (the HD audio for example, yep i use a Audigy FX because that 990X Evo had a broken integrated ALC892, mainly why i got it for cheap)
    IMG_0006.JPG

    and general look pics i think the in/out top fans are not too disruptive
    IMG_0004.JPG

    edit, idea: will a CM Jetflo 120 white led be a good replacement for a SP120 plain grey ... yuck ...

    eeeeeehh? i think i have to redo the pics ... too blurry ... i wonder why ... i guess i shake too much o_O

    only if you are ok with noise.
    i got 2 red led recently for side panel of my case and i am disappointed with they noise lvls. even at 1200rpm i bаrely can hear my windforce@70deg
    if you prefer silence i would recommend you sickleflow but they dont have white led :(

    i am ok with noise :D my 290 stick at 65% fan and the SP120 on the H60 is at 2k rpm so i guess the Jetflo will do :) i want a white led fan and corsair only do AF in led model (unless i decide to use the IFX-14 with a Silverstone SST-FHP141 140x140x38 in the middle ... 260m3/h ftw? once i get the C70 since the Spec-01 can barely close the door with the IFX-14 ) or ... i can dual Scythe Ultra Kaze 3k rpm 43dBa... aherm ... wrong idea i guess :roll:

    Jetflo fans are nice, I actually wish I had grabbed them over my sickleflow fans for the extra power when I need it. Not that the sickleflow fans I have are bad, just wish they were a bit more powerful (I think the LED's are the best part of the sickleflow fans at least to me).

    I finally sold off some old parts and junk so ive got something for myself coming in the mail in the next couple of days :D

    RIP 3770k, it seemed like a good chip too. Did you get any good speeds out of it?
