Little Devil V8 Custumization Help:)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Yesterday my shipment arrived from the netherlands.
My Little Devil V8 HPTX tray white
The case is huge and looks phenomenal
I was really surprised how well it was secured and packaged.

Now I am in a bit of a dilemma here.
I just don´t know what fans to get that will look nice with my color theme.











Here is what I got so far:

My hardware:

Gigabyte X58 UD7 (basically blue)
Kingston Hyper X 12 GB (blue) with Hyper X cooler (blue LED)
2x6950 Twin Frozr III (silver)
Sleeving is the factory sleeving of my +85 1050Watt Revolution PSU
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Watercooling:

Koolance 370(Chrome Nickel)
Phobya Balancer 250 (Silver Nickel)
Radiators:RX480, Phobya G Changer 480 1.2
Rad fans:Gentle Typhoon
1/2" UV Green Tubing
Chrome fittings
D5 with EK White top
4xUV cold cathodes
1xblue cathode
UV green fan cable sleeving
Heatmaster (silver)

So you can basically see I wanted a Blue/UV green theme with Silver Nickel & Chrome theme for the interior.
à will put one 480 in the bottom section with the Gentle typhoons and the second one will come on when I add the gpu loop that will be engaged when Kepler arrives^^ the 6950´s will be air cooled so I can save money.

So it will be a CPU only loop until then.
With the Gentle Typhoons in the bottom ..there will of course be no lighting down there since they aren´t LED.
Which is why I kinda think should go LED fans in the upper section.

I have 4xoptions for 140 mm fans.
I hope you can make some suggestions for what fans I should go with.
I first thought maybe I should go for non LED blue 140 mm fans to make it look more elegant and just depend on the UV cathodes and blue cathode for lighting.
This one for example:http://www.aquatuning.at/product_inf...140x25mm-.html
But then I thought maybe it could look good with white LED fans like this:http://www.aquatuning.at/product_inf...140x25mm-.html

Or maybe Blue LED?
I am not sure hope you can help out^^

Also because I won´t gpu watercool until kepler I will use the top 4x120mm fan mounts as intake for the two twinfrozr´s to take in good cool air.
What fans should I choose here?
Same problem.
When it comes to fans I just don´t have the sight to percept how it will look.

Get Scythe Gentle Typhoons (AP14 for silence & AP15 for power) and paint them whatever color you want. And why on earth aren't you WC'ing your GPU's? You might as well return the 2x Twin Frozr 6950 and get 2x 6950 reference and water blocks, you can reach "new levels" of performance with water And btw isn't the UD7 black/gold?

I specifically got Twin Frozr III because I don´t wanna waste money on waterblocks right now.
I am saving for Kepler SLI and then I will be watercooling as well
But watercoolingwise I am already set..got a second 480 rad , second D5 for Dual power and fittings ...I will just have to pick up the waterblocks


Back to topic.
I don´t wanna be forced to paint the fans ...and Gentle Typhoons are to pricey to use them as case fans too...I think cheaper fans are ok for the case.

I opened the same thread in the case section to gather as many oppinions as possible.
There someone said I should go White LED and White non LED fans to have a perfect look.
Also he said my Blue LED fan idea was too cliche.

What do you think? will white 140 mm and 120 mm Non LED and LED fans fit with my colortheme?

Here the fans that are available to me:

140 mm :http://www.aquatuning.at/index.php/c...40mm-Fans.html
120 mm :http://www.aquatuning.at/index.php/cPath/47_71



I thought for the 140 mm options these ones would look nice?:


The guy from the other section said these would be better as 140 mm:


120mm maybe these ones:

But I don´t like the black frame.

First of all I love Bas Rutten but isn´t it El Guapo?^^

Secondly where do you see 38 mm fan options?


I really don´t know what fan coloring would fit best with my other color theme.

If you read the OP you can see what I chose as color theme I hope you can help me figuring out what fans would fit best with that guys

Not sure what Bas Rutten has to do with anything lol. And no it's el gappo

I mean 38mm thick like so http://www.delta.com.tw/product/cp/d...140&th=38&vol=

367 CFM and 74DB, would need a fan controller

I'm sure sycthe and san ace do 140x38 as well. Just think 38's look a bit meaner!

Bas Rutten is called El Guapo "The Handsome One"


Moving on

Most people of the other section have recommended to get all which fans.
What do you people think of that?
Would all white fans really fit with my other color themes?
Also all 120 mm white fans LED or not have black frames...doesn´t that look stupid?

Ok I have decided what fans I will go with now.

There are two options:

1.)Bitfenix Spectre 3x140mm and 4x120mm (for the 2x140mm front options and 1x140 exhaust option of the little devil and 4x120mm top panel option)

They are non LED


2.)Akasa Quiet Series White (transparent frame)
Also 3x140mm and 4x120mm for my Little Devil

Those are White LED though.

3.)Aearocool Shark White
Again for all fan options.

White LED
Please read the OP to check my color theme and tell me what fans will fit better with it cause I just can´t decide.
