TheSabertooth Z77 armor has two miniature, i think 40 mm fans on it at key points, so it pushes air under the armour, therefore you have a channel of air, instead of just having an open volume of air where some may or most likely won't stick near your board taking heat along with it. A channelized amount of air allows it to propel wind directly over the board. It also comes with 12 temperature sensors. I can pretty much guarentee it does better. When people here the word "armour" they think it's too protect from blunt force. The armour in this case is only there to make the air flow directly over the board.

Not to mention 4 fan controller ports, plus 2 ports for the two fans that connect to the thermal armour I mentioned. Plus the CPU fan port. Including the power supply's fan, even though it doesn't enter the case's atmosphere. I'm at 17 fans strong.

Gonna get 3 delta fans and put 2 of them on my radiator on the bottom in the inside of the case. Not on top since they can cut fingers. Need to buy one though and experiment with it before I realize if I want something so loud, but people say they aren't annoying on low power.

Also, as for looks, tell me this doesn't look awesome.



It doesn't look awesome, you can't even see the motherboard because of that horrendous mess of wires. Having a giant birds nest of wires in the middle of your case HURTS AIR FLOW. Having 17 fans does not make your airflow BOSS. Having 5 or 6 well placed fans with a wide open case would be superior to what you have there.

It's great to have pride in your setup. I think the rest of the guys in here would all agree that it needs some serious work.

The 400R has ton's of cable routing holes and a huge amount of space behind the motherboard for tucking wires.

I had a P67 Sabertooth, the thermal armor didn't do much for temps, it did create a lot of noise because 40mm fans are screamers.

My Extreme6 has 6 fan ports, the same as yours, only yours has two extra for the armor fans. Which is designed to generate interest from guys like you.

^Exactly and we are really nice guys here and are glad to help people out who are new to this and give them tips, but when you have a closed mind and tell guys like FTW 420 that they don't know what he is talking about we aren't going to be so nice about telling you that you need to fix it.
It does look like you have a nice build on your hands, but you really do need to tuck all the cables behind the motherboard because it DOES affect the airflow a lot. We aren't just saying that because we want to see you take everything apart and bust your butt re-routing all the cables. We are telling you that because you seem really focused on cooling and the way you have things right now is not a proper way to set up a build that you want to move a lot of air.
When I first built my computer a couple months back my cable management was absolutely horrible, but I listened to the people on this site and welcomed all of their suggestions and it really helped me out in the long run. I would suggest for you to do the same.
Here is what the cable management on my new rig looks like.




I have 8 fans in my build and look how neat everything is. That way I will move a lot of air with minimal restriction.

Exactly, you have a really nice case and it was designed to hide cables.

(BTW, I painted all my white trim lime green for a lil touch of custom, how does it look?)

That looks really cool man! I'm looking to do some custom work too. Trying to think of how to cut my HAF 912 and attach it to the Phantom so I can hold the pump, res, the sensor display screen, etc in it.

I'll throw some ideas on that later. But first while its empty, paint it.

Did I put too much CLU? The CLU I had was more watery. Most of the other CLU pictures I've seen looked dry and more textured.

I'm concerned about the extra dripping down into the socket area in my upright motherboard.
