Then ignore the coolers I posted, they would be stupid overkill.

The Havik and Arctic coolers are sufficient and both have very quiet fans, although are more expensive than you need for a non-oc'ed setup.

If it was me I might save a few bucks and get one of these:
Enermax ETS-T40

Chances are, with a tower cooler and stock speeds your fan will barely spin up to make noise anyway.

Nevermind...it has shipped. I have the tracking number. thumb.gif

Thank you for the suggestions...

Phanteks is a really impressive cooler...
Enermax is another great suggestion

Will probably decide a sec before pressing the Shop button.. smile.gif

sorry if these questions have already been covered, but im having trouble finding some solid answers.

Is it possible to fit a 240mm slim rad + fans in the top, as well as another 120m thin rad in either front or rear WITHOUT removing the lower HDD bay? I want a loop with my CPU and GPU, but still need 3.5 HDDs. unsure if theres enough clearance in the front without removing bays. and im not sure a double block would do with a slim rad (i already have an rs240 spare, and alone i think it would struggle with a gpu)

Also, has anyone specifically used the apogee drive 2 with standard size ram? Both builds I could find used the samsung low profile ram. My ram doesn't have tall heatspreaders, but is still normal sized. I'm unsure if that pump/block would fit. It seems perfect for this build though.

I would say yes but dont hold me to it, but if you are rocking 2.5" drives you could always remove the HDD bay and use the two fixing points on the PSU/mobo cage.

It's possible but you may not be able to do push pull at the top, depending on the thickness of the rad. I suggest the EX240 for best performance with mid speed fans. What you're thinking of doing was my original plan but I ended up getting a RX240 and now everything is all complicated.

I was silly to think I could internally mount the RX240 with push pull at the top and now that I did mount it that way, there would be no way to get fittings mounted on my 7950 waterblock. I might just settle with doing push pull at the front but that would mean I'd have to get creative with my hard drives or just mount them externally. I wish I could just go pure SSDs, but I don't have the budget to do so. I'll have to play around to see what option would best suit me.

I already have an rs240, so im basically wanting to use that. I'm happy to not go push pull, i just think that i need at least an extra 120 rad to adequately cool a cpu and gpu. I may get an ex120 to go with the rs and just see how it fits. they aren't too expensive so i'll have a go.

Also wondering about a res, since ive always used bay reservoirs, i'm not familiar with externals. I was thinking one o these would be good: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13126/ex-res-273/Phobya_Balancer_150_Reservoir_-_Black_Nickel_45151.html?tl=g30c97s165#blank

since its pretty small. But i wonder if its even worth it when i could just use a t line. in such a small loop, is a res really even needed?

I'm in NZ though, so even once i've decided on parts its going to take ages to get them shipped and through customs, need to make sure i get it right first time..

A friend of mine said he will make me a prototype set of the handles and feet out of aluminum. His shop has the tools, machines, and CAD to do it right. He said he can 3D scan the handles and feet as they are now and make them in aluminum or delrin.

I'll let you all know how they come out. The case wont be here until early next week so he will not even get started until later next week. He can also anodize and power coat them in pretty much any color too. smile.gif
