Nah here me out:


I'm leaving in two months, and I've got a new Lian Li I'll be buying once I build my new rig. And the Antec LanBoy is a classic! I've had this case for a long time

I am warming to Bitfenix even though I'd never heard of them until recently :shame:, I really love the look of their black spectre fans with the white LED's. Does any of the Bitfenix cases you guys have, include the 120mm & 140mm spectre fans I'm talking about?



I really want to see images of them in action in a case (can anyone take a shot for me please?) I really want to justify spending money on replacing all my fans with these spectre's.

I need either 8 x 120's + 1 x 140, or 6 x 120's + 3 x 140's.

So are the extra 140's worth getting over the 120's? I've also seen a thread on this site and some Youtube videos which say these fans make a loud clicking noise, is that still the case?

Please help me I do want to get these and include some Bitfenix in my machine but only if they are worth it.


Thanks

It's a piece of black cardboard that's hiding some cables and directing the airflow of another fan.

Edit:

In response to the post above me; my case only came with 2 230mm fans, both of which are flat black with LEDs, was thinking of getting some of the spectre ones to replace them. Mine don't click, I don't know anything about their 120s and 140s, but I would assume it would carry over.

I will update this as more products I get.

























Look At what came in the mail today!!!!!








^^^^ Mounting hardware before it was all finished, I realized I put the brackets on wrong and had to swap them from vertical to horizontal.


This thing looks amazing in person.

And the Cpu/heatsink installed...

^^^^Also hid the Exhaust fan wiring entirely hehe. It was a pain but I plan to keep making improvements.

So here it is as of about 10 minutes ago, Wires are tucked away as neatly as I can get them excep for the few hanging for the drives and the Gfx card.

Not sure if you noticed but I'm in love with the Seasonic PSU I got. It is pure LUXURY.

What do you guys think?



Also thought about relocating my Hard drives to up in the 5.25 bay to allow for a better stream of airflow through the front of the chassis to the gfx card.

All solid reviews here is what I am looking at for $22.99
Xigmatek CCA-EMFCB-U01 4 in 3 HDD Cage Extra Hard Drive Bay



Probably will replace the fan with a silent one.

Has anyone used a Hard drive cage or hotswappable cage in this price range?
I know there are a few others from coolermaster and Lian-Li but they didnt really appeal to me.


I'm going for Silent and Cool on this build so please keep that in mind for any feedback.


Thanks in advance, any comments or suggestions will recieve REP for your time.

Thanks, I guess this is good reference for someone looking into the colossus window too. Anyone requesting a pic of an angle let me know.
