I have used all enclosed systems like the H70 and CoolIt Eco before. This will be my first soirée with a custom loop. I'll keep you all updated.

It fits JUST
No modding needed.
I'll stick some pictures up in a bit.

My final components are on truck for delivery this morning! Barring an act of god (ie: I miss Purolator), I should be able to start building this weekend!

I'll post pics as soon as I get around to it.

You don't see that every day.

My Fractal Design Define Mini-Case is on the way, the whole rest has status of "reserved for delivery".
So tomorrow i'm able to open my new case box and have a look into it... maybe a bit senseless, eh?



So, congrats on all so far GENEZ owners from Nuremberg, Germany! I'll spent virtually all of u some nice and cool franconian Meister lager beer with famous sausages of nuremberg with kraut!

Here you have:

If the Mini is anything like the R3, you are in for a treat with that case.
Also, the beer looks fantastic. Might have to find some in town here if I can.
Not so sure about the sausage and kraut though.

How did you vent the airflow with the Carsair H70, etc.? Did you vent it per the instructions, i.e., into the case, or did you reverse it and vent it to the outside? I, for one, would be most interested in your experience with airflow direction. Also, maybe you share what case you used and if that made a difference in your decision making. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or ideas!

Well heres one very pimped Lian Li v354-R.
Spec is in sig, including one very sweat Gene-Z
To fit the C14 I had to one very minor ghetto mod involving some PVA tape on the fan clips (pic 6) lol.
Please excuse the quality of the images, poopy phone camera and all that

I have used the Eco in an NZXT Phantom, Antec 900, Fractal R3, and Antec Mini P180. I forget my specific fan configurations for each, but intake would lower the temps by 1 or 2 degrees but my graphics card would generally go up by a degree or so. The H70 I have only used as intake on the Phantom, but I used Gentle Typhoon AP-15 in p/p. I think with a 4.7Ghz oc on an i5 2500k I was hitting between 62C and 65C at full load.

Actually now that I think about it, I still use an Eco in each the Fractal and P180. Each have intake fans directly across from the rad, so I used them each as exhaust. Let me know if you want some specific tests done and I might check it out if I have some spare time.

Dont know yet, still trying to get my head around this new BIOS.
Will post back later when I've figured out where the "make it go faster" button is.
