Purolator finally delivered my box of goodies to my parents house yesterday. My mum opened it up to inspect it, and I'm fairly certain she's more excited about my new build than I am! Just waiting for Canada Post to deliver my new GPU & keyboard there either today or Monday.

While I wait for my parts to make it to my place.. I'm taking suggestions for: replacement fans, cooling (gonna go hydro instead of air as I'm past the excitement of a giant heat sink), and a colour scheme - mainly for the lights - military green feels like it's restricting me somewhat now versus gunmetal black, but I like the case colour and want to have something that works, but don't really want to go with red as it seems over done.

I'm also not so keen on the tinted and perforated window though so I have taken all the measurements and produced and AutoCAD drawing to get a new sheet of clear acrylic machined at work in the new year. I will post pictures and a PDF of the drawing file for anyone else who is interested.

Very keen on the pdf smile.gif

Ordered my parallel card.

Thinkin I might 212 evo this thing, rather than NHD14 simply not cost wise, could just H80 it for the same price.

Have a use for 3d printing? Laser Cutting? Laser Scanning? 4/5 axis CNC Milling? Give me a shout! Want to figure out how to make something yourself? Still give me a shout!

and... I got a $50 amazon.com card from my folks "for computer stuff" so looks like I'll be adding the 212 evo and I guess a SATA optical drive to replace what I stole (borrowed!) from the HP.
Nice cable management!

Good idea. The Noctua looks cool, but the performance increase (compared to the 212) isn't enough to justify the price.
I've got a 212 and a couple of Thermaltake Thunderblade fans (max airflow of 70.2CFM each) that keep my proc pretty chilly. thumb.gif
You can get the fans for around $10, and they don't sound like a jet taking off. biggrin.gif

Every single fan in this case will be corsair AF quiet, I'm making custom shrouds for my GPUs to match their architectural theme too. I like the red ring thing going on.

While I wait for my parts to make it to my place.. I'm taking suggestions for: replacement fans, cooling (gonna go hydro instead of air as I'm past the excitement of a giant heat sink), and a colour scheme - mainly for the lights - military green feels like it's restricting me somewhat now versus gunmetal black, but I like the case colour and want to have something that works, but don't really want to go with red as it seems over done.

If you don't want to go air or go custom water, then the H100i is the only logical solution for the case. For replacement fans, I'd recommend either GTs (if you can find them) or Noctua fans! Color scheme, I'd say anything to match the board at this point. If the board is dark colored, then go with that. If it's light colored, find a dark color to complement it.

I bought the green because it looked fitting for the case. Also, I don't think it'll interfere with my other color scheme.

For the looks, those fans are perfect. A couple of those on the Evo should do the trick.thumb.gif

I found this article really interesting. They use a C70 and replace the stock fans with SP120 and AF120 and compare results stock vs quiet vs performance. I've two SP120 performance fans for the front and two AF140 quiet fans for the top along with a rehosmart6 on my amazon.com wish list to control fans and a roll of white LED ribbon.
