Hope you don't mind it in the 810 thread, but since I have one of them too, . . . biggrin.gif

Built the PSU covers and the drive cage trim panels that go on the sides.

Makes a nice place to mount SSD's or just for looking clean thru the window.



More in the build log, of course . . . biggrin.gif

It is not too late for me to change my order, is there another 120mm you would reccomend (for radiator push/pull set-up) around the same price range? (Around $10)

I honestly can't be any help on the 120 version. I have never used, much less tested one.

The 140 version has pretty good specs as far as what's listed, and with dual ball bearings, where most near that price range are sleeve.

Comparing the listed specs, would easily lead you to choose it over others that were more expensive, but still had lower specs.

If you needed a number of them, and budget was a concern, the 140 version looked pretty good.

Realistically, while it doesn't live up to its specs . . . which is why some of us that have them are a bit disappointed, . . . It is not a bad fan, and is definitely worth the price.

If you can afford a bit more, the Aerocool shark, and probably others in the $16 range, will move more air, and have led versions.


As far as the 120 goes, I'd figure the specs are about half again what the real output is, so figure 2/3 of what the specs say and compare it that way.

That should at least get you close to real world results.


If you get the Corsair SP120's in the 2 packs, they are about $14 each, which does get you a nice fan, or get the always popular Gentle Typhon AP15's.

Generally speaking, $10 does not get you a whole lot of fan for use on a rad.

They aren't planned to be.

I build for enjoyment, and as a break from my "day job".

I was planning to use them as water cooling upgrades to a couple of my builds in regular phantom cases, one that's air cooled, and the other that's AIO, so they both have water cooling. . . . But I don't have a Z77 build yet, so plans could change.

So how did you deal with the metal tabs that hold the stock window in place? Obviously they have to be cut and removed in order to lay in your new glass then you either have to repaint the panel or use channel rubber to hide the cut tabs. I do plan on a real piece of glass in the future but for now my acrylic looks better then the day i unboxed the case. Not joking there is no visible scratch or smudge at all and it only took me about 10 minutes. but i already had the polish. I use it a lot to polish out my headlight lenses on my car when they start to yellow.
Obviously the plexi can never be as good as glass but this is a quick fix for anyone too lazy to go get glass cut and fitted.

cut them off and painted the bare metal with of close of a color as i could (i have the gunmetal switch). the lowes where i went had the piece of glass for like 8.50 and they cut it to size for free. then i used the tape of the gods (3m scotch 4010 mounting tape) to attach it to the side panel.

If you clean plexiglass with anything but plexi cleaner, like Plexus, you're asking for trouble.

Want to update my Switch 810 and im curious

Would this be sufficient enough to cool a i7 3930k and 2x GTX 680 in SLI?


1) Top Rad: Black Ice SR1 360 Radiator 9fpi
2) Front Rad: XSPC RX240 Radiator 8fpi
3) Pump: XSPC Twin D5 Dual Bay Reservoir Pump Combo

Im reading mixed reports saying that it is no where near enough, and stating if i had a RX360 or something alike then i would be better off but i can't fit a RX360 in a switch 810 with a RIVE. So im out of options.. Seem's this case isn't as water cooling friendly as i once thought lol

that would be more than enough to cool those components, and you definitely don't need 2 d5 pumps, unless you're planning on expanding your loop and adding more rads and more blocks. it depends, you could easily run pull with an rx360 rad and rive, but i doubt you could do push/pull with both. black ice is doable i think

Yeah i will be planning on expanding the loop down the track hence getting the dual D5 and possibly a new case down the line with more rads.. Yeah i know i could run simply pull with the RX360 but rather not purely for aesthetics, Well the Black Ice SR1 is 54mm thick from what i remember their is a 90mm clearance between the top of the case and the start of the Rampage IV Extreme, So 54mm + 25mm fans is 79mm, That will leave 11mm space between the fans and the CPU power connector which i hope will be enough! Maybe someone can confirm?

But back to your answer mate, You saying it would be more then enough is music to my ears but im confused to why so many other people say it isn't enough? Especially if you OC (which all my hardware is)

idk who the hell has been telling you otherwise, but a 360 and 240 rad combo could easily cool a high tdp cpu like your 3930k overclocked and 3 graphics cards. i think the 90mm clearance only applies for standard atx mobos. the rive is an eatx form factor, but its almost as tall as a xl atx. i can't confirm as i don't have a rive, but you should wait for someone here who has one that would give you better clarification.

imo, d5's are best running as one. and if you would like to run pumps in serial, then id recommend the mcp35x2 as it will give you the best head pressure even for the most restricted loops. and bay reservoirs are pain to bleed ive heard, cylindrical reservoirs is where its at dawg lol. good luck
