drool.gif Absolutely gorgeous build. I am always impressed by the sleeving that people do.
Just out of curiosity, what voltage and clocks are your cards at?

1250 at 1.187v for 24/7 use, though I've hit 1350 at the current maximum 1.212v mostly stable. But at 1250, two TI's are more than enough for my single 2560x1440 60Hz monitor.

And I have to thank Amazon, BitFenix, Akasa, and Corsair for my sleeved cables. The only real "modding" I did for this build was to remove the hotswap connectors and trays, then flatten the drive rails back into the floor, but that lack of mod necessity is one of the beautiful things about a 540 Air.

Got my EX240/Raystorm Kit along with more AP-15s on my fcpu cart. This will be my first watercooling loop.


Do i have to get any tools to mount it or just philips screwdriver + wrench should do?

Phillips screw driver yep - no wrenches. A quarter to turn the fittings in. A little silver nitrate or arctic silver 5 and you should be good to go. Liquid always distilled walmart distilled is best. Something to keep the algae down dead water-Silver- liquid utopia-Jungle algae no more. Take your time and have fun with it. thumb.gif

Oh, thanks for reminding me of AS5. Added it and finished the order. Walmart here doesn't sell distilled water, but i should have no problem finding it.

It should arrive here next month. Wish i could afford express shipping, but $200 more, nope haha biggrin.gif

summary, the fans are not running at a higher speed when they need to be.

 




Solder a "big" capacitor+diode inline the fan wire, and it'll keep running after the peak dropped off.... smile.gif
If using voltage control.... dont try this with PWM fans, wont work smile.gif

Regular Raystorm EX240 kits come with XSPC 1/2" barbs. The D5 model comes with compression fittings.
