I am seriously thinking about taking the rad out of the case. A good XSPC stand, some extra tubing... exchange the YL HS fans for something else (AP-15's maybe) and I should see a lowering of temps on the CPU. Then, slap some exhaust fans in the area that the rad is in and case temps should come down a bit. Maybe use the swapped out YL's for this. I am expecting my Accelero EXTREME Plus GPU cooler any moment soon so GPU is taken care of.

Just need to figure out the "logistics" of the external rad fan wiring and such.

I remember last summer was hot-hot-hot. At least my rig is on the desk with the rear exhaust facing the window. When I closed the window at night and turned the A/C on, that corner of my work area would get hot real fast. That was before the water cooling. I will see how it really goes this year.

You guys in Florida just have way too much humidity.

I figured it would be rainy there now. Typical PR summer. Gotta get down there soon. Its been a while.

Why would you take the rad out? You have high case temps?

Mid/high 40's when gaming. Seen low 50's on hotter days. High 30's, low 40's when doing normal browsing and stuff. Expecting all those to go up a bit during the hotter summer days coming around the corner.

When the new GPU cooler comes (wife won't let me but your card's dag nabit!), I believe it will cool the GPU but blow that hot air into the case itself and obviously raising the case temp a bit. That in turn will be sucked in by the rad fans when cooling the CPU.

To be honest, not even sure if those temps are good or not or if my assumptions are correct. Common sense say's yes...

I'm trying to mount my RX360 radiator in the back of my HAF-X case, I want to get the fans running in a push/pull configuration.

I already know how I'm going to mount it all, the problem is that I don't know where I can find a screw that is long enough. I'll need a 10-12inch screw, roughly.

I also need a screw sleeve (black if possible), anyone have an idea in regards to where I can find a screw like this? Been searching online but having some trouble finding the screw.

A 10-12 inch screw?? Not sure about that, but you can get hardware from McMaster-Carr online.

Not going to doubt you know what you are doing... but... what are you planning on doing??? 10-12" screw sounds awfully long and even unstable!

The Gentle Typhoon 2150 Group Buy is almost over, so you may want to take advantage of it before it is too late. They are $9 for the barebones model. These are a bit faster than the AP-15's, so with a controller you can dial them down, or up. And the price seems awesome to me.
