I like the yellow black look of the fan itself, it just clashes with both our systems.
Also I like your 120 radiator stack on the bottom. I might steal that ideal and make a shroud for that and the PSU to hide cables and make a cleaner look. Are they about equal in height??
I just purchased 2 6970s with blocks and all. Also replaced my top 240 with a 360, and offset it so that I can now do push pull if I want to. Also have some more ideas cooking
You always have things cookin' Mr. King.
The 680 definitely performs better and more quietly than the 7970...great performance + cheaper price upgrade.
Yes, PSU and 120 stack are about the same height. Post pics of your 360 mod!
I did remove the fan blades off the akasas (that's how I painted them white). I didn't paint the front ones because they aren't visible except for when I take off the side panel for pics...which is more frequent than I thought. All you do is pull them off. Just a magnet. I broke my first one because I thought I had to take off the tape and washer on the back...not the case with these fans.
