Hey guys does anyone have a Sentry Mix fan controler? If so do you guys like it? Thinking about picking one up as well as a NZXT Hue from the armory. Thanks

So here ya go, young padawan,
Here's the quick and the dead on 420's in the switch: (copy / pasted from the last time I typed it out)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So there ya go, that 420 would need new holes drilled, (it uses 15mm fan spacings) and it won't be any better, probably worse, than a 60mm thick 360, just way more work to install.
If you're planning to run a dual loop at some point in the future, why not plan for it with your initial res purchase so you don't have to replace it to upgrade?. Get something like this:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12480/ex-res-254/Koolance_RP-452X2_Dual_525_Reservoir_Rev_20_Serial_or_Parallel_for_1_or_2_Pumps_RP-450_Laing_D5_MCP655-B_MCP655.html?tl=g30c107s152#blank
Put a quality 240 on the bottom, like a UT60, or an SR1 for the CPU and call it a day untill you get the block for the 690 and are ready for that phase. You won't even have to drain or change anything, it'll just be adding the new components.

Thanks and i apologize for not doing my do diligence. Given my lack of knowledge in this area and the immense amount of search over load (okay being lazy is a better word) I promise to do a better job.

It looks like you've aquired some experience putting rigs together, just not so much when it comes to cutting on the cases or the physics of water cooling.
Just use good planning and ask questions, and above all, use the the search function and the build logs listed on page 1. They can offer much usefull information.
And by all means, post lots of pics along the way thumb.gif

You know I cant wait for the day we get a house and the only thing I care about is the Garage so that I can fit in a vertical lift and a nice open area to have a work bench. It's no fun cutting metal in the living room .LOL.

I will start a build log once Im close to start putting things nicely in my loosely put together 810.

The only thing coming radioactive will be the 2600K (its getting a 2500K in return), And one of my 2 TB drives. So pretty much new not all new. I did get the 3770K but then returned it after doing a lot of reading.

The MB should be in Thursday, PSU came in today. GPU last thursday.





Need to get the water cooling parts ordered prolly by 2moro night.

Also ordered some cheap sleeving to try my hand at sleeving before i get good stuff from MDPC, and a decent SSD.

An option I hadn't mentioned, but would be very practical with the res I suggested, (it's also probably the best cooling scenario) would be to ultimately run 2 pumps in series at the res and then go > CPU > 240 rad > GPU > 360 rad > res
But untill you get a second pump and rad, you could run a single pump and 1 rad (either the 240 or 360) for just the CPU to spread the cost out a bit.
Darlene

I did like that res before too and would not mind it. Would like to do it once (cough... cough) and do it right. I have the res sitting in the cart, now thinking of what Rad to get. I hear good things about the EX series. Looking at skinneelabs to get some info.

STEER CLEAR OF THE MIX!!! I have had two of them, still waiting to get #3 (haven't heard from NZXT Support in 2 weeks, not talking about forum reps because they are awesome). The first one (one I purchased) channel 1 did not work and when running it with all my fans (10 GT-15 and 2 Spectre Pro 140s) I got a buzzing noise from the fan controller. The second one (first replacement) had the same buzzing noise from the fan controller. My Lamptron FC-5V2 makes no noise what so ever when running in the same fans. I love the look of the Mix, but the hassle is just not worth it imo.

The lamptron fc5v2 is what I want, but its not exactly a great price.. especially on frozencpu which I need to buy other stuff from.. i wonder why its like $20 more there. rolleyes.gif

What do you think about this. I'm thinking of getting the koolance pump to go with the res.



I promise I will start a build log sometime tomorrow. Please feel free to suggest something better.

I just completed the psu/radiator cover on my Frost Phoenix. Please check it out. http://www.overclock.net/t/1269782/work-log-project-frost-phoenix-nzxt-switch-810-water-cooled#post_17479889
