Wow the red stands out, like a beautiful woman. a little to much for me, but i still like it. I was just thinking how distracting it may be when im playing a game lol.
Skitz- nice job man,

Now im looking at fans. nothing can be simple really( i also want to use a fan controller). im looking at the
-Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm (i think there is newer version but cannot locate on newegg)
-Scythe Gentle Typhoon( having trouble locating these on newegg)
-Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000
-yate loons

Yes i do like newegg, because they are Memphis and i get everything next day smile.gif

It is the opinion of another forum that ive frequented that tiger direct is better than newegg for ordering cases and fragile boards. Ive not been able to confirm first hand, but their reasoning was that newegg ships cases in its original box alone where tiger adds another box so it is less likely to arrive with damage??? Can anyone confirm or deny this?

i can confirm newegg ships in original box. the trooper was packed pretty nice though(from the factory). Note, mine had a hole in the box but was not damaged

another thing, that was just the case, everything else i ordered was packed in separate boxes with extra padding

I looked over some reviews and they are mixed. But people are really bad at reviews sometimes.

I will add this. I Trust Newegg and Tiger Direct the same in quality and shipping. But since I am close to the Memphis Hub I get Next day with Newegg if I buy before lunch time.

It took me a couple of times to figure it out. Its in the Control Panel. As memory Serves I googled my parts and put pictures to all my parts. But the new interface is still really buggy. I would just say keep playing with it. You can't hurt it. There is a part where you can assign a dollar value to each part and then it will total the cost of your Rig for you. That is a fun part too. Sobering was a word that i would use for myself.

I have had mixed reviews myself from both. I have gotten Motherboards from Newegg that I thanked God was still in one piece and some that were so nicely packed that I would have wrote them a Golden review. Its Humans doing a job. Some do it well and some just don't care. They just want a paycheck and that is every business. And its the Luck of the Draw with everything for that very reason.

Something else about reviews- when things are good, people are lazy to post. However if something is wrong, then they are motivated to respond

any advice on the fans would be appreciated wink.gif

I was just thinking...

Anytime everyone is talking about upgrading fans they are always talking about the 12V units typical to a computer whether they run it off the PSU or MOBO, i understand the reason to not have it run all the time even when your computer is not running... I don't know if such a beast exists, but is there a controller you can use as a switch to turn on and off something outside of the normal computer mod parts?

Eg:

If i wanted to use a small regular AC blower like a "squirrel cage" and mount it somehow to my chassis, could i provide power to it using a standard cord but interrupt it with a computer controlled "switch" thereby effectively making it function the same as a regular cooler fan?

I realize that it may be louder than most would prefer but it could be an interesting option if it was done right that would provide some serious air flow volume.

it can be accomplished and with a remote even, but i dont think it would be worth it. Thats just my opinion, and everyone has one. But noise X space X running outside lines X another power cord to take slot in your power strip. I dont think there is advantage to this. Maybe im misunderstanding you all together. Maybe someone has a better reply than me?

also, an outside source would blow dust all over the unit. rather than dust just settling. its to easy, for my taste, to get a good fan that fits.

and i apologize in advance if i have read your post wrong

You are very true. Only people that were unbelieving before the delivery and then happy after would respond for every good Responce I would say there are 150 to 300 that never responded. But that is FUZZY MATH. !!! LOL

If you are looking for Great Fans to use for Upgrades I would Consider The Cooler Master R-4s.. Wait ... You already have R-4s.. But there are better. Good rule of thumb. If it cost alot for the fan. There is a reason. Velocity or quiet.

Squrrel Cage fans should be left to the Squllels. IMHO That would be like using gasoline to put out a fire. But thats just my opinion.

In Theory. Anything is possible ... You use sensors and Relays to make the AC connection to the Squirrel Cage fan and a very large reostat to regulate the Cages speed. Just water cool if you want that kind of cooling.
