The ONLY reason I switched to a fan controller is because I wanted to control the on/off LED's of the fans I purchased. I pretty much always am running them on high now simply because I don't feel like touching it. I was using the motherboard headers before and it does a really great job of using the fans when they are needed and modulating the rpm's. If I could have easily controlled the LED's I would have left the fans connected to the motherboard.

Same thing went for the stock controller, only used it for controlling the stock LED fans, it's still doing that but the fans are not on the bottom haha

I was actually worried when I was reading the reviews on the HDD cages. Luckily they updated and moved the holes up further so you can use angled SATA cables. I have 36" round cables and didn't want to waste them.

Finally got my setup up and running... ran into a little issue as my first asus sabertooth z77 suddenly decided to fail after a week, the first two dimms no longer worked. The computer would turn on but nothing would show up on screen... all this after i installed the water cooling... so i had to take it all out and go out and get a new mobo, and then repeat the build.

That looks sweet! Shame for the faulty mobo frown.gif
But I really like that reservoir and the pump on the cpu does look handy.
Holy F! $144.95 for the pump?!!

And everybody with the corsair fans!! Are they that good?!

I am using 4x Gentle Typhoon for intake and 2x Excalibur for my RAD and 1x NZXT 140mm for Back exhaust. That's why i am using a fan controller. Any good recommendation for a throttle kinda fan controller?

Honestly, I am rather impressed. I have 2 performance fans in the front of my trooper, and at full speed, you can hear them, but they aren't really loud. I toss my fan controller to low and they still move a good amount of air, but I cant hear them. I have the 140 in the back and its great as well. I am considering getting 2 more performance fans for the top, but well see if I need them.

Well I got the case! Couldn't wait till Saturday so I put it all together last night. I have a 1366 system I am using in it until my full upgrade beginning of 2013. That will be 2011 build. But I figured I would buy the parts as the year went by if I found them on sale. Got the case for $139 on Newegg and two 120mm red SickleFlow fans at $4 off a fan. I do like the case though, lots of room, the look, functionality. Holds all four of my HDD's with spaces between them. I removed the SSD dock that sits on the bottom and turned the cages to have the fans face forward.

Got my little helper with me.


Parts are transferred over.


Here are a couple comparisons to my Phantom case that the 1366 build was in.
