The problem making the green fan as an intake is that when i flip it over the fan's cables are visible. Red, yellow etc.

That problem does not happen with the Corsair Fan.

I believe the look of the green fan was better though. Any suggestions?

Edit ;

Yeah I will change the rear fan to the previous green fan as seen on the H100. I don't like the black there.
Just use a bit of black paint or a sharpie to color the green fans wires black, that would be easiest. Or if you have some extra sleeve or heatshrink you could go that route. I do like the green fan much better than the stock Corsair fan though, too

Yeah I will try and see if I can paint the cables to black. I don't know much about sleeving so that's not really an option for me.

 

I will change back the black fan to green when the next set of cables/backplates arrive.

My New Sata 6.0 GB Cables (4), motherboard power related cables (4), 1 internal USB and 1 HD Audio cables have arrived.

The only downside so far I can not put the cover for this part on. I will look into it later.

Here you can see the new varrious + and - cables as well as the power and reset headers.

4 SATA 3 cables. 2 of them for SSD. 1 for HDD and 1 for DVD

I have no idea what to do with the fan controller's cables. I will have to learn to sleeve I believe.

HD Audio extension cable.

BTW sorry, only until I looked at the pictures on my PC, I could realize that Hulk was not really holding on to the cables. I will fix this later.

I am waiting for 1 midplate

1 backplate for GPU

1 backplate for the soundcard

and 1 Green rim for the top fans.

Lol thank you very much.

 

I just need to get few other stuff and my case will be complete and I will clean it in detail and add more pictures. This will happen in a week or so.

 

Any kind of feedback is appreciated.

Now you just have to get rid of those ugly power cables going into the top 5.25" bays and you'll be all set thumb.gif
You should try to find a 140mm fan in matching green to replace the one on the midplate too

Yeah I still have lots of to do.

 

By the way those cables are fan controller cables. The power cables are actually hidden well thanks to Corsair 800D. I am thinking of purchasing this to cover that part of the 5.25. I will do this next month.

 

Also I replaced the midplate fan with an Akasa Viper fan that I already had. That is also a yellowish green mix fan that matches with the rest of the fans inthe case. But maybe next month I might go for purple fans. I did not come across any, so help will be appreciated. I will be needing at least 3 120mm Purple fans and 1 140mm purple fan. Since purple is the secondary color of Hulk, it would match just fine.

 

here are some latest pictures

Amazing what changing one fan can do to make a build look that much better. It's all in the little details. If those wires are just normal fan wires, you might be able to route them through a hole in the backside of the 5.25" bay wall. That's what I did with my fan controller and they can't be seen at all. If you can't find any purple fans you like you could always just paint them too. I recently painted 9 Gentle Typhoons and they came out really nice. And taking them apart really wasn't that hard either, just make sure you don't lose the retention clip, or the "*!@#$ clip" as I like to call it. Just as you think you're about to get it to go back on, it pops off and shoots across the room resulting if the shouting of profanities

Hmmm. To be honest I never paid too much attention to the fan controller cables but maybe yes I can re route them from behind or somewhere else. I will look into this tomorrow.

 

I thought about painting the fans but I am not too sure at the moment. If there were 5 fans I had to paint, at least 2 of them would be broken I assure you that. I am clumsy. I really am.

 

I couldnt really find a purple fan so far. Just 1 but i did not like it much.

 

I am now looking into green fans. So far most of them are just with green led but I dont want them with led. I will look for more and share few pictures of the fans I could buy here and get some opinions
