i was just saying what i got lol. for your needs you could definitely get a smaller cooler

if you intend to get an aftermarket cooler for silence you will want the conditions that it works in to be optimal, especially since you will be getting a passive gpu. with the typical mitx board that holds the gpu close to the cpu, i'm not sure if there's any tower cooler that will spit air out of the case. there may be other heatsinks that blow hot air up and out that will fit, but remember that even if a cooler fits properly with a gpu installed, the backplate might interfere with components on the mobo

i don't have any recommendations since there are so many options to explore, but i will say that the most convenient option would be to get the z77 asus board and your favorite cooler that is silent out of the box. if you got another mobo with an aio cooler or a vertically oriented heatsink, you would've had to spend some time figuring out if it was compatible, and you would more than likely want to switch the fan(s) on it too.

oh you might find the site silentpcreview.com helpful. they don't have too many official reviews, but they provide a lot of useful information for the products they have reviewd, as well as mp3 recordings of the product's noise output at different settings

I am going to do some modding to the bay in order to fit a 240 rad up top and a bitfenix recon .... The only downside is that you need to place the fans on the outside of the case ....

Stay tuned

I found mine is such a snug fit that it holds itself wedged in place, firm enough to be able to use the touch screen controls.

I put mine in with Superstrength Velcro tape. I just used the plastic part of it, because the fabric part made it too thick to fit. It actually works great because the velcro looks like mesh from the side, so you can't notice i used it wink.gif

Do you guys think I should delid & maybe overclock my proc?

Also the fans i'm running are, 2 GT-AP13's as intake rad fans, a AP181 180mm front intake case fan & a AP122 rear exhaust case fan. Both case fans are @ 5v's. Everything is whisper quiet biggrin.gif

Thanks for posting this up. So you're running 1150rpms as intake. What's your 670 boosting at, have you raised voltage? I was thinking about running NB Multiframe 1800rpms on mine. My CPU is at 4.4ghz not much over 1.2v and my GPU is at 1.175v boosting at 1267mhz so that gives me hope maaaaybe I could keep everything in the 60-65C range on one copper 240?

Yea I'm curious if a 120mm extra rad would make that much of a difference. Maybe the extra 120 will compensate a bit for overclocking? I'm curious to see more results. I suppose I could go with a 240 and test results and see if I need to add another rad. I'm thinking a 45mm should be plenty.

I'm hoping I can get another rad into my custom case hopefully a slim 120. I think it would make a big difference to have CPU>120>GPU>240 (res/pump aio) I worry that after 30+ minutes the single 240 will be heat soaked.

Yea I'm thinking so too.
My planned loop is to go res pump 120mm rad CPU 240mm rad gpu back to res. that should be more than enough cooling. And with a 150mm res with "standby" fluid it should help once I get close to ambient.

Am I missing something or why not add a slim 240 on the top and another on the front if you need to overclock? You could even take off the solid front panel and stick the fans outside the case if you want a bit more room too. It makes the most sense to me but I don't have a case in my hands so I could be wrong.

EDIT: Wait I see what's wrong with this, the case would need some modifying perhaps, still possible, but more work is needed....
