NH-D14 (fans @ 1300 RPM): 67.7 degrees C over ambient
H100 (fans @ 2600 RPM): 60.1 degrees C over ambient
Rasa RS360 (fans @ 1700 RPM): 48.75 degrees C over ambient

Considering you can get the D14 for $69, the H100 is not worth $50 extra. It only beats it at the cost of running the fans at FULL speed.

Personally, I like a quiet computer, over a loud one, especially over a couple degree difference.

Rasa kit however, is worth $10 more over the H100 to ME, since we're talking about 10 - 20 degree difference.

Yeah I am not arguing...
I also like the low sounds and great cooling(thats my youtube video post of the sound earlier), and hope that my push/pull with my 200mm fan helps...
I personally stayed away from both the D14 and SilverArrow because of the horrible fan colors(given their astounding performance) as I like my aesthetics...
The fan colors make it look like they belong in a retail stores bathroom...

I guess you wouldn't like my computer. Different strokes for different folks.

To be truthful, and no offense, that is really ugly...
But nice wiring, mine is horrible... (or is it the camera angle?)

Like you said, we are entitled to our own opinions...

Back to the subject, if I had the same processor, i'll be glad to compare temps!

It's just good cable management, I spent 10 hours doing it. The 2 fan cables are hidden now too. I love Noctua fans, they're quiet, efficient, and I don't even mind the colors.

Besides, I can't remember the last time I opened up my computer to admire its colors. It only gets opened up to get dusted once in a while. Cool and quiet is far more important to me. wink.gif

+rep, I respect that... and very good job! It looks really good at that angle with all matching fans...
My case has horrible wire management to begin with and I would need some serious time and custom modding to hide my wires correctly...

How much room is behind the case? I've never worked with a 1200 case.

I sent every single cable to the back of the case, and used zip ties to hold them in place, and routed them 1 by 1 to the mobo spots. I didn't have that much room either, I should prolly take a pic of the back of the case.

Your cables aren't even bad now, I'm sure you can clean it up even more.

btw - nice mobo. wink.gif

yeah it would look ten time better with black fans. Everthing would match. But no one but you probably ever looks in there if you happy then that is all that matters.
