Thanks Indigo!! Once the watercooling is in, I can class this as finished... If I buy another case though, then I might have to sell the TJ08-E off to fund the next project smile.gif

I would have no choice but to call it finished wink.gif

Check this out. I went through hell trying to put my 2 HDDs somewhere in the case so that I could take out the drive cage (SSD's are behind the MB). Well, they fit neatly side-by-side on the floor of the case! I had the flip the radiator upside down so that the right drive would slide under; there's like a mm or two between the graphics card PCB and the top of the rad. biggrin.gif There's a layer of acoustic foam under the drives and a small piece of packing foam separating them. They work fine and are cool!

Just spent more money on my build haha, another frozen cpu order, consisting of a evga 780 backplate, some stops and led plugs and some leds D:.

Still waiting for my big order though from AC, about $600 AUD worth of stuff XD

Great idea. To make them invisible, maybe try cutting some plexiglass and place on top with double sided tape. Stealth drives FTW!

HOT DAMN. I happen to have a sheet of 1/8" black acrylic! I think it's too thick though.

Nothing is impossible mate... Should at least give it a try smile.gif
post #4517 of 7171
Okay guys... I'm going to get a new rad. But I'm confuse. Well, my choices are:

1) Magicool 180 Slim Radiator
2) Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 180mm
3) Phobya Xtreme 200mm

1) Cheap, but I don't think she can peform like no 2). Well, half price.
2) Expensive, even expensive than Phobya at my country. But, full copper. I wonder how much is the different temp for 1) vs 2)
3) Big, and yet a bit cheaper than 2). But I wonder which one will perform better. 180mm fan on 180mm rad or 180mm on 200mm rad. Or can I install 200mm fan if I use this rad?

Well, if 3 is better than 2, I will get 3 because it's easier to obtain locally. For 1) and 2), need to self import from performance PC. Yeah, all copper sound sweet. But will it really helpful?

Your comment and ideas are welcome. biggrin.gif

And the loop is for GTX 670 and i5 3570k. My rig siggy are outdated. Thanks...

Does anyone have the ap181 run via motherboard on full voltage then controlled via a software like Asus Ai suite? I'd like to remove my fan controller and just have it run. I wanna clear cables internal. I remember last time I tried with the ai suite it didn't quite like it.. But maybe now who knows.

Also has anyone found a 140mm replacement to be a better option in terms of acoustics without sacrificing performance/cooling? Tbh I don't particularly like the front ap181. Lol.

I couldnt control the AP181 with my GENE Z IV, but mine is running from mobo connector for 2+ years no issues, i just have Zalman Fanmate2 straped to it. But i did see some that could even with my board, there were mulitple version of fanXpert around that time.... i tried a lot, but never with success. Now you own a GENE V, they come with fanXpert2, so you should be able to control it. Btw if you are able please post it, im about to rebuild with haswell specially for fanXpert2 and i'll be really interested on finding out what ranges the fan will operate with the mobo, FanXpert2 has a testing of the fans that will give you the following display (just different values).



If you do try it, and you find the time to post the screen shot of your test, ill be very greatfull.

SPCR just did a couple of 140mm fan roundups,

First 140 mm Fan Roundup: Noctua, Phanteks, Xigmatek
Second 140 mm Fan Roundup: Antec, bequiet!, Corsair, Scythe

But just out of size, i doubt a 140mm fan could perform as well as 180mm in terms of cooling, maybe more quiet... but it wont move as much air. I have stick to the 180mm fan as i do think it performs really well on the cooling, just too noisy for my liking, around 600rpm it starts to become tolerable under a quiet environment, but play around with FanXpert2 see if you can get it to the point where you are fine with the noise/performance.

Hey gang, I stumbled across this thread a few months ago and decided a TJ08E was the case for me. I've found much inspiration in this thread, that being said I'm just going to leave this here... winksmiley.jpg
