Been running watercooling for about 2 months now. My first build ever. I would like to fine tune it 4 better performance though.

I am using these components along with distilled water and antifreeze. I use 3 Noctua NF P12 fans and they are mounted to blow air out from the top of the case.

Gonna fit an extra 120 rad in the rear of the case and another EK fullcover block 4 my second grafics card as soon as my economy allows it.

I was thinking about changing my fans to the GT14 or GT15 (1450 or 1850) since I was hoping to lower my temps AND noice levels slightly. Do you think it is possible or is the Noctua the best way to go? My rad is quite slim so I dont know if it would make a difference doing a push/pull setup?
And would it be a good thing to make the fans suck air through the top instead of blowing out?

I also would like to get a good and affordable fan/pump-controller. Have been looking at the following but am not sure wich would fit my needs:

T-Balancer bigNG
Alphacool Heatmaster
Aquacomputer aquaero 5 LT USB Fan-Controller

I would like to be able to monitor the flow and controll about 12 fans. It would be a bonus if the controller can shut down the computer in case of failure.
