Always love finding 700D builds!

We have very similar setups (case, motherboard, power supply, raided SSD's, Nvidia gpus) thumb.gif
Keep up the good posts, always love more pics!

Thanks for stopping by


I ask anyone reading this I am unsure which fans to purchase if any. Maybe I will just reuse what I have access to right now and take babysteps since AP-15s are so damn expensive and I have a high powered type of RAD what makes more sense.

Sticking with my LED R4s or upgrading to a high powered fan controlled YATE LOOM or similiar fan(kyze 3000s which i read bad reviews on quality but sure do produce lot of air) or just suck it up and got 3-6 AP-15s?

Based on the above would running 6 fans always be the best setup? or perhaps would running only 3 with 3 Shrouds perhaps change things up and offer better performance and less noise?

R4s in action (lowest voltage setting, grills, and smoked blades make the leds look fainter).

There is no doubt those R4s look good should i just get 3 more that way at least I have 6 of the same fans on my rad but I am hesitant on buying 3 more blue LED ones untill I see what my white tubing with UV will look like. I kinda wanted to go purplish perhaps. Ahh idk, still no one has commented on the whole 6x3 fans with shrouds how different can it actually make it with 3 less fans but perhaps X% more pressure.

White is a nice complement to several colors.

Hey Werman I saw one of your older cases which was awesome it was basically mine with white tubes and is so similiar to what I am about to do I wanted to throw a few questions your way.

Current Setup

By nycste at 2012-03-27

1. I noticed you have your rad pointed other way so tubes come from cd bay zone rather then rare of case any specific reason other then more room? I am trying to think the only negative means more tubing right?

2. I wanted to buy a male 1/4 to male 1/4 adapter piece frozen confirmed that I should be able to stick my res right onto the top or side of my pump with that adapter and that would allow me to remove my pump from the underside and keep it right around or over the fan bay. I am not sure if I would have enough room do you recommend this switch?

- Part of this switch would entail me flipping my res to do so, meaning the inside tube of the res would push or let water fall from the top into the res then sucked back out the bottom. Now that I think about it and made a quick measurement it is impossible to fit with a 250mm res lol or at least I think. I will still order the simple 3-4 dollar adapter but I guess have to wait till I changed the size of the RES can you confirm this?

3. What size and name brand tubing is that? very curious

4. Cannot think of much else atm except for the long list of questions I already have posted my last question is would 3 more R4s be better so my rad has 6 of them or would remove the top layer of fans and adding 7mm-25mm shrouds onto the remaining 3 R4s be better for overall temps? so what im straight up wonder does

6-r4s = 3 r4s with shrouds

and if i swapped the r4s for instead yate loons or something similiar with AP-15s would 3 + shrouds be pretty comparable or better then just adding 6 fans?

I know im annoying but id rather ask questions then have 2x the bill and parts laying around smile.gif

1) That stage of my 800D build had a bay res (XSPC DDC dual bay res). Tbh, I prefer a tube res which eventually I added a helix reservoir.

2) Should fit. I used fittings to connect my helix res to the DDC. The D5 is a bit taller and the intake is the middle (your top could have the option to reverse that). You can also get some angled fittings. There's lots of unique ways to plumb things. Personally, I try to minimize fittings.

3) Primochill 1/2x3/4. I have used their uv red, white, and clear but lately their clear has failed (plasticize) and their lack of support really has lead me to black-listing them. Well, tbh, just avoid the clear but you shouldn't have any issues with colored tube. Just keep and eye on the inside when you do routine maintenance (recommended) and look for a residue build up.

4) If you can afford them, APs are the best of the best. Yates are the best bang for your buck, though keep in mind there are Yates (low, medium, and high) and then there "original" Yates. Its a long story but the "original" ones have a beefier motor and have a better chance of lasting. The non-marked "original/direct-from-Yate" ones are cheaper and you can find them in red, blue, and green led. These guys are a great buy but be careful as you may get one that is unbalance, so I would recommend picking up an extra one (they're very inexpensive). For these Yates, I recommend the medium speed yates; they have the best noise/performance ratio imho. Lastly, the R4s have surprised me a lot. The push a ton of air and you can drop the voltage low enough that they are super quiet (my medium yates wouldn't go too far, lowest was ~7v). They are about the same price of the "original" Yates but should perform very close to them, though i feel they are far superior to the non-original yates. I would recommend amazon.com for R4s as they tend to have the best price and they were super nice to replace an unbalanced one I received at no charge.

Ultimately, it comes down to how much you want to spend and what is your main objection. If money is tight, Yates and R4s are my choice, though the Medium non-original yates (either plain or led) are a great buy with good performance. If you got the cash and are looking for the ultimate performance, GTs (Gentle Typhoon APs) are the way to go. I have heard of many other great fans out there but these are the one's I see more frequently. If you happen to go with something different, research it first as best as possible and don't be afraid to ask! That's what this community is for thumb.gif

Alright update:

The order is in and updates are on the way.

Yate Loons (They so cheap wanted to make sure I had some great backup fans depending on my final choice in setup vs r4s)
Primo White UV Tubing
2 UV Lights
Bunch of black bitspower fittings
Replacement 250mm EK V2 Res
Kill Coil
and cpu block LED
post #19 of 34
Forgot to mention. EK nickel blocks and kill.coil don't get along. I would highly recommend to try their biocide to avoid nickel degradation. They also don't recommend to use biocides with copper sulfate like PTNuke. Just an fyi based on experience smile.gif

O so I do not wanna use my kill coil huh and instead get my hands on some biocide which I believe can purchase anywhere esp a pet store maybe as long as no copper sulfate included in solution?
