2) Will my PSU be sufficient? Just asking for all certainty.

Looks like an awesome build.

1) I would not add any splitters to the fan controller. Either add another fan controller, connect them to the mobo, or attach them them directly to the psu (if you don't need to control the speed).

2) I do not think the PSU is sufficient. Check out this tool...

  • High TDP CPU (+more if upper limit OC)
  • Dual 7970
  • Water Pump
  • 14+ hdds
  • 8+ fans
You're going to want a much larger PSU for all this.

OK, thanks for the info. I'll be going for a larger PSU then. Possibly an overkill one, if I can afford it. smile.gif

Hmm, I have no real experience along the lines of fan controllers, except the stock Cosmos II one. Any recommendations? smile.gif

I don't recommend a fan controller. I would just connect the fans directly to 5 v, 7 v or 12 v, depending on how fast you want them to run.

You sure it can't hurt my PC in any way?
I'm just asking because I know the basics but I'm not that much into fans and their power regulations. Better to ask beforehand than to be sorry. wink.gif
You should know that the Cosmos II fan controller has up to about 7 or 8 connections, and right now I already have... lemme count quickly... 8 fans connected and I'm about to add either 8 or 14 (not entirely sure if I'll need that 360 with a CPU and dual or maybe later on triple 7970) more fans. I'm not entirely sure if the stock fan controller can handle that many fans.

I disagree, with them directly connected they can't be set to maintain a certain temp like they can be with a controller... Lamptronic are good, my new build is using the http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12285/bus-243/Lamptron_FC_Touch_-_30W_-_6_Channel_Aluminum_Rheobus_w_Touch_Screen_-_Black_FCT_HOT_ITEM.html?id=qgQUnQEt&mv_pc=153Lamptron FC Touch - 30W - 6 Channel

I took a look at the fan controllers out there, yesterday, and agreed that Lamptron (not Lamptronic btw tongue.gif ) is a good brand indeed. I think I'll go with the FC-9. Looks gorgeous (also fits my black&red theme nicely smile.gif ) and has 50W of power per fan connector, which should mean I can connect a fan splitter to it too. Still open to other ideas, though. smile.gif

I've got an FC8, and it does the job. The build quality is not fantastic...just average. But I love how I can easily set the color of the LED lights to what I want them to be, without jumpers/wires or modding.

I have an Aquaero XT on order. You should check this one out if you haven't. Feature wise...its the best out there.
