I am in shopping mode to replace my ASUS P5Q-E setup and do not want a repeat of the problems I have now.

Thanks

You are putting the rad in the top outside of the case and the fans on the inside right ? Looks like to me my mb would have worked even if the heatsink was on the very edge of the board.

Watch the video time 5:10 and see how he lays the rad in the top and puts the block down through the holes from the top.

Cheers. I think I might try to make a cover similar to the side panel designs to go over the top of the rad.

I did, but not inside. I have two AP-15's inside the case pushing through the RX240. I cut out the mesh by using the stock opening as a guide. Next step is to make a radiator grill from the mesh that was removed. I'll post pictures when I do that, it will make it look complete. Good Luck.

What are the best top exhaust fans?

Right now i'm using 140mm Thermalright X-Silent fans at the top powered by the mobo. But I feel there isn't enough air coming out?

So what would you guys recommend?
post #607 of 4610
Well I'll tell you right now Ap-15 Gentle typhoons are gonna be thrown at you a lot lol I think Noctua has a good 140mm fan that would work great for that too but for a radiator I would go with the Ap-15.

Yeah I don't have a radiator on the top I'm using an H80 so I might look into the Gentle Typhoons

I think all in all, when in doubt go for a gentle typhoon they are quiet, push lots of air, and have good static pressure. So you can't go wrong with them lol
