Just wondering if anyone can show a pic of the cooler with 120mm fans?

I wanna put AP15s on it.

I just ordered both and if they won't mount I'll have to cancel my order, so if anyone can chime in I'd appreciate it smile.gif

I wonder if anyone has tried stuffing this thing into a Corsair 250D...doable? Looking for some quiet cooling for my i5.

Are you pulling our chain? 250D has 94mm CPU clearance .. maybe 140mm with no optical drive. rolleyes.gif

Than it would be dependent on motherboard / center CPU clearances; PCIe socket to center CPU, RAM socket to center CPU, RAM height and case to center CPU.

Any tips on alternative fan clip options? My gpu setup will clash with the fan clips. I've seen rubber bands and some zip ties but I'm looking if anyone has tried different clips or other items to hold down the fans? Placed an order for a blue ph-tc14pe and a 3rd fan smile.gif. Also, how easy is to breakdown the fans to paint the housings??? Thanks thumb.gif

Got my cooler installed. Surprisingly simple to install though a tiny bit fiddly intially. I'm happy I didn't have any interference with the top gpu in my Gigabyte Sniper 5 Z87 and MSi 280X:










Sorry, didn't take notice of temps on my H212 to compare. I'm running a little Pentium G3258 that I'll oc later on. May have to delid the sucker if temps are high biggrin.gif.

Looking good!
Your Pentium G3258 is only 53w TDP. 212 was plenty of cooler for the heat it makes. 14PE could cool it without fans. biggrin.gif I'm cooling a i7 920 @ 3.8GHz and at full load fans run 1100rpm @ 60-65c. wink.gif

Sorry, I missed your previous post.
Simplest for fan clips is tape or heat shrink to insulate the protruding part.
I don't think fans can be taken apart.
post #2259 of 2766
I cleared the top gpu w/ plenty of space and there's ~5mm from the clips to the gpu. I added some rubber pads I hijacked from the H212. It is massive overkill for the PAE, but I will eventually move to a 4770k/4790K later on if the Pentium can't keep up with crossfire Tahiti. Also, PAE G3258 suffer the same heat issues as its Haswell big brothers. Overkill is a necessity, unless I delid (leaning on not doing this to prevent any diminish in resale of the PAE when it comes time to switch).


I'm very impressed on how smooth its been going. Fans are super quiet and idle temps are chilly. I need a 3-way pwm splitter w/ molex once the 4rd fan arrives. I'm really not liking the white fan housings and I may just pasti-dip them or wrap them in vinyl. I'm not a decent painter, so this notion is really keeping me from painting them. Though, i did see a couple of pics of builds where the blades were removed for painting.

Removed for painting or just painted?

I've had good luck painting housings without removing fan. Carefully mask the fan and spray the housing. Hardest part is the face of motor mounting strips behind fan blades. This is where a felt marker the same color comes in handy. Used black felt maker to do housings on a couple of TY-140 fans. Had to look real close to see the were not originally black. wink.gif
