Nice I like where you mounted the 120, if I could redo my setup I would go with a 120 in the bottom over the 280 externally mounted on top. Have you thought of switching the in/out on your front 240 so that your runs are straight up and down?

Yes I did try to have straight runs from each radiator but the tube coming from my reservoir /pump to my 240 would kink if I had the tubes installed to have straight runs.

I think the 300R can fit a 280 rad on top if you use offset holes.

Theres no room to offset a 280, my 280 takes up the whole width of the mesh on top. You can fit a slim 240 if you offset though. The problem was when I was building my first watercool setup I had overkill in mind, and I didnt think the external mount would bother me. Live and learn for the next build. rolleyes.gif

Inside with Green color on ( it matches my front green fans very well, wish i didn't have the blue side fans)





Aqua is my favorite color because it matches the side fans well enough and it seems to provide a bunch of brightness of light then just the straight Blue)

Maybe at some point i'll switch out the side fans so that it is less of a clash of colors (although i kind of like it haha)






Overall I'm highly satisfied with my experience with this great product and I'm very happy that I got it because it gives so many options as opposed to a regular LED strip. I have changing tastes sometimes and this is an ALL in one product that puts a great look into your pc case.

Sorry for so many pics but I figured I'd be as thorough as possible to let others see how the case maight look if they wanted to buy their own nzxt Hue.

What do y'all think?


Hey, what side fans are they?? Plus whats the air flow and loudness like??

the side fans are antec tri cool blue led fans (old designs but still move a ton of air, but yes they are a bit loud at max.) they have switches on them with 3 speeds and on medium they are pretty quite and still move more air than crappy stock fans and a decent number of others. the green front intakes are xigmatech 140mm green crystal fans. those are damn near silent imho. move decent air but like i said you wont hear them,

If i ran everything on max then you could definately hear the system, not obnoxious or super load, but enough that you will have to play music etc to not hear it. but at medium it'd be fairly close to silent....

honestly my suggestion for this case is that you buy 140 fans exclusively bc you can put them in every slot except back exhaust i think......and it would be a pretty quiet pc. hopew that helps

I'd go with either corsair af 140 mm or my personal favorites which are cougar 140mm orange and black fans

Ah cool, thanks for the useful info. I was looking at the AF140mm for the front/top and a SP120 for the back where ill get a Corsair H60 watercooler. However I wanted to have a nice lit up Blue LED case so I was leaning towards having all LED fans but all the ones I found apparently were very loud and alot of people recommended the AF140 and SP120 series.

Taking this into consideration my current plan is to have the AF140's at the front and top. Dual SP120's at the rear on the H60 and two Blue 140mm LED fans on the side panel. And from your reply ill be looking more into the Antec tri-cools as you said they are quite at medium setting and from the image very bright aswell. To counter the non-led fans at the front and top I am planning to get the NZXT 2M LED lighted sleeve kit to light up the case more.
