I like the H80, too. But I got a such sweet deal on an H60 that I bought it instead.
I will add a fan in the future as needed. I like the AP121 fans for push/pull, but I want something with a four pin connector and I can't find these fans offered this way.

I also swapped the stock H80 fans for AP121-WL's in push/pull exhaust, favoring low-noise over CFM.

[QUOTE=snakemed;14225723]Are the water hoses on your H50 as stretched as the look in the photos? I like the idea of the front mount location, nice job.

Nope, They look like it, but they actually fit perfect, if I had it mounted any other way, they were poping out my case and was unable to close the door!

Will a thermalright xp-120 fit this board?
Apparently, it can be mounted with the 775 accessories to 1155 too.

Or an Alpenföhn Panorama?

Going on a i7 2600k.

Thx.

Yeah, normally I would as well, but the simple solution to that is to use the chassis headers and Q-fan, or the adapters that come with it. Ends up doing the same exact thing (low rpm @ idle / max rpm under preset load).

The fans really do a nice job of focusing the air over the rad, especially since this case has the three 181's on the bottom. It's basically one big vertical air pipe like this, which means extremely low noise with solid cooling.

PWM versions of the AP line would be great, but I haven't seen any. I'm also a bit miffed that Q-fan works with three pins on the chassis headers, but not on the two CPU headers.

Wow. Is that a permanent fixture? It looks like you pulled them out of a far superior build.

It was on my maximus iv extreme build but i felt the nf200 wasnt needed anymore and the e-atx build was getting really cramp to fit the res and pump so i migrate it all to the gene-z, still building it need the cpu block and coolant and tubings to arrive to finish it up.

ATM its just sitting pretty there....

Looks awesome! Must get some crazy performance.

I am in a somewhat similar situation. I am water cooling (proper) for the first time with this build and I have all of my parts just sitting around waiting for me to get some time to install the rad in my case.

Looks like you would have rather gone with a Formula if they existed on 1155?
