Do you suggest the U14S because you don't think the NH-U12S would cool the Xeon sufficiently? I had not considered the U14S becaus ethe U12S was quieter, smaller, and I wasn't overclocking. Again, sound level is the priority here but I can't seem to find the decibels of the stock Intel cooler anywhere.

variant = 80mm be quiet silent wings 2

As for the CPU Cooler, you can go with U14S instead if you're not using a discrete GPU. Not sure if a fanless CPU cooler will cool down an i7-ish processor, but that probably depends on ambient/room temps. A cheap alternative would be a Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power, which is supposedly as good as a Noctua D14 (and U14S?). Hyper212's stock fan is noisy at high speeds.
Really? This makes me think about changing my Noctua 92mm PWMs I use for my radiator. At 12v, they are quite loud. Next time I tear down the WC, I have to test the stock fans and see if its more quiet than the Noctuas.thumb.gif

Anyone that use Silent wing 92mm?

Can you fit it though? The issue seems to me to be that only Noctua makes slim profile fans. Personally I don't think I can fit normal thickness fans in front of the rad. At least not without even more extensive modding, and in that case I might just look at modding the whole front and go 2x120mm (extra space from SFX PSU) or something like that.

Hi
Yes, you are right, its like 8mm between the radiator and the GPU, I dont think I can fit 25mm fans.

Yes, but that may be subjective though.

Although I was quite surprised as well when I first installed the 80mm Silent Wings 2. I do not expect for the fan to be "silent" at 2000rpm. At first I thought it is my PSU that is making the noise, but I realized the PSU fan is not spinning at all (Seasonic X560). I only hear the 80mm Silent Wings 2 making sound if I place my ear (around 6 inches away or less) at the back of the case, in front of the motor.

I only have 80mm and 120mm Silent Wings 2, sadly. Supposed to buy 92mm but I accidentally damaged the tachometer (in a good way) of my San Ace 9G0912P 92mm fans, so now they always spin at 1200rpm. I find it just as quiet as the 80mm Silent Wings 2, so I ended up not buying Silent Wings 2 92mm and saved me at least $60 having it shipped to my country biggrin.gif

I'm using the SilentWings 92mm. Completely silent at 7v. At 12v, you can hear the airflow but no motor noise. BQ fans are as good as Noctuas but the color scheme is more plain (which is not a bad thing)

will a 168mm cpu cooler fit in here? I know the max is 165, but maybe by removing the metal drive mount?
