A lot of members here have SP120's mounted on radiators but they mostly Corsair, don't think I've seen a Seidon on here yet. Out of interest why do you want to change the fans? Unless the website is wrong the Seidon uses Blademaster fans. They get loud at high RPM but they have great static pressure.

I got it worked out and I am planning on using Seidon fan. And...I don't think that I screwed anything up! I though i had an issue with my CPU, but everything is up and running! I am installing mobo drivers as I type.

Here is a quick glance (I am still waiting on a fan controller and some PMW Y splitters, so wires like the pump and fan are visible):

Added a few new things into the build. Need a few angle fittings and some red coolant and it will be complete.

Looks good. I suggest moving the video power cables so they don't block the airflow from the fans. Also I don't think I'm the only one who removed the unused drive cradles from the hard drive cages. It's helps draw more air from the front. When I was using both cages I put one drive in the middle slot of each one. That way it blocks the least amount of air.

I removed the unused hard drive caddies from my center cage too. That helped some and is a great suggestion.

I've noticed a lot of people don't even use a disc drive anymore. I'm considering removing mine and putting my hard drive in there so I can removed the 2 bottom bays. Any reason not to do this?

Only if you have old games that you want to play lol. Other than that, I don't see a reason, either. I did consider it and I still may take it out and return it. I don't like the way it looks, anyway biggrin.gif.

Advantage to having at least 1 cage in is that you can attach a fan to the end of it. Have 2 in the front then 2 in the bottom. That what I have done with my build. Depends if you have alot of drives or plans for future expansion etc.

Only future expansion I see in the near future is a full loop.

I still get a lot of games on DVD. Internet speed is too slow to buy off STEAM or other stuff. I also burn discs occasionally. Planning on selling my old rig but I might look at building up another smaller PC, if I do I could just use the drive in there and network it. Would mean I could mount a XSPC res/pump and a fan controller.

An AF 140 quiet would do very nicely in the bottom, it would make it more complete not to mention more intake flow. I love the build.
