And I think depends on where you will be putting the light source, it will either glow or light things up.

i guess the front looks awesome when its dark...

so you'd recommend me to put some sort of a red LED strip behind the front fans that would light trough them to the front? (i guess it should work well no?)


also, do you miss having an internal ODD? tongue.gif

Indeed it looks nicer in the dark tongue.gif But the glow does not spread to the top fan since there's a hdd cage behind it. I guess placing the led strip along the sides of your case would work too. My ccfl is on the side perpendicular to the front fan. I want to get a led strip too in near future. Maybe the Bitfenix Alchemy led strips.

Never ever miss having the ODD, LOL.

I was a Noctua user a while back. Their fan is dead silent, for me at least.
All fans you listed have good static pressure and airflow. I guess it depends on your design preference.
Aesthethic wise, the Noctua's color does not blend well in some build. Excalibur and Scythe GT should blend better since they are black/gray. The CM XtraFlow would look cool in red themed build I guess. But if I were to choose one, I'll go with the Scythe GT. Not a fanboy, but until now I'm very satisfied with all 5 GTs that are running in my rig. The 6th still waiting for the next 120 rad tongue.gif
As for the led strip, maybe Bitfenix?

i measured and there is about 2 cm between the HDD cage to the front fan mounting. i guess i can put a led strip somewhere there though not sure how to place one to make a cool effect. (i guees to get to short ones and place them on the top hdd cage so that they eachwould light through each fan from top to bottom somehow.)

Poor ODDs, they just want to be useful nd no one wants them tongue.gif

Do you have a fan controller?

I once used nothing but Noctua fans and they were fantastic and quiet, but my temps went up a few degrees using them, because they wernt as powerful in the real world.

I have switched to http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FG-049-BX and using a fan controller, these are brilliantly quiet just like the Noctua's they look better and blow more air if i am honest, well... my temps went back down to a reasonable level anyway. It probably varies from user to user smile.gif Their LED glow is pretty low aswell, not in your face blue.

Experiment with different placements and settle to the one that gives you the best effect. thumb.gif

Now I'm considering between Scythe GT or CM Excalibur but the CM XtraFlo could be perfect for the front (because it has LED). XtraFlo has higher CFM than Excalibur but half the price. Scythe GT & Arctic F12 fan has almost the same CFM rating but the latter is cheaper. Hmmmm... Cougar fans are nice too.

Several pages back, people are talking about this LED strip which I really like but I don't remember the brand. I'll look it up after work.

I have a BitFenix Hydra Fan Controller - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-071-BX

It blends into the black case well, plus if you get BitFenix Fans... you can control the LED's to smile.gif
post #619 of 8430
Just wanted input on my fan set up guys.

I have just got my Cougar Vortex fans smile.gif Went for 4 x 120mm PWM and 4x 140mm Fans.

I was thinking of going 2 120mm PWM in the front behind the front panel. Leaving the top HD cage in and putting another 120mm PWM there and the last 120mm PWM for the back as the only exhaust. Except for the H100i at the top with stock fans.

Then putting 2x 140mm at the bottom of the case and the other two on the side window.

Would this be too much in terms of intakes? Would I be better having a side panel fan as an exhaust as well?

EDIT:

I have managed to put the 120mm fans in front and back etc...

But the 140mm fans screws just fall through the mounting holes... Would a set of washers simply fix it? How has everyone else fitted 140mm fans on the side and the bottom?

Impressed by the Cougars so far though... Reduced temps by 2 degree's and it much much more quieter now. Even at 800rpm.

The only thing I hear now is the annoying whine from the H100i even after the firmware update which fixed the rattle... This high pitched whine is very annoying now. Couldnt hardly notice it before but no the original case fans have been replaced it's far more noticeable.

I noticed that some of the fan screws I got with fans were too thin, but the corsair black screws were wide enough to stay put. Funky stuff... wheee.gif
