post #491 of 1026
Niccceee just read the whole thread - pretty cool,

Just got a 99% new 550D of a mate, alot of people have mentioned swapping out the 120mm rear fan for a AF140? How are people finding the AF140 as a rear exhaust... im thinking of grabbing one now biggrin.gif

Almost the exact build I have, looks really nice. I should have ordered a 140 for exhaust instead of the 120. -__-

Hey, for those who were wondering if a Swiftech h220 would fit in the 550D, I took photos of my install. My asus board might be the extreme case since the 8 pin power on this is at the very top.

If you remove the rubber on the fan holes, it will fit perfectly fine:

Cool. Looks like two 30mm alphacools, or is the one in front a 45mm.

I just got an apogee drive II and redid my loop. I should get some pictures up.

It's a 30 up top and a 45 in the front.

They are great, i use 1 at rear and 1 at bottom. They are very quiet, more quiet than my AP-14 (but that might be because the AP-14's are basically slamming air against my hard drive cages)

Hello Everyone! This is my first post here, I just got the 550D!!!biggrin.gif

So, ive built my system:
i7 3820
GTX 680 EVGA
Rampage IV Formula
Corsair AX760
Corsair Vengeance 16GB

I am in a dilemma. I have built and connected everything EXPECT for the cpu cooler. I will be getting the H55 tomorrow, and had a question about the 120mm fan mount on the back of the 550d.

The holes for the fan mount are large, therfore i will have to use the washers included with the h55, BUT are the screws included LONG enough to go through the fan and onto the radiator????

Please answer, i had a friend who had an antec kuhler 620 and a 550d and said the screws wouldn't reach the radiator..

(Also! My CPU is stock clocked, i won't overclock, AND plan on having both the top and side panels ON for quietness, is it worth it? Or should i stick one on the bottom?

Thanks guys!! Sorry for so many questions:o
