Running stock fans would sill be awesome, or you can run AP-14 in push/pull, or AP-15s in push/pull on fan controllers.

Oh sorry, newegg says two 120mm and one 140mm on their product description.

Based on the product pictures i'd buy 3 120mm and 2 140mm fans. Unless someone can correct me on what the case's capabilities are.

I recommend Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition fans. They retail for around $20 for a dual pack (2 fans for 20ish). Use the AF120s if they are case fans. Use the SP120s for radiator fans. Both case fans and rad fans come in Quiet edition models. They have been proven to be quieter than the Noctua NF-F12s.

Corsair also sells the same fans in 140 version, whichever you prefer.

The Noctua fans are considered the creme of the crop of case fans and retail for $15 each. 2 corsair fans for $20 is a steal especially since they are quieter. Keep in mind Corsair under rates almost all of their products. This means the fans you buy from them will actually perform better than suggested. I have also seen better than advertised package results from other peoples benchmarks (I would have to look up that exact benchmark for you).

Here is a link for a comparison review between the NF-F12s from Noctua and the Corsair Air series Fans.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11TIfocssvY biggrin.gif

Again, they are the best fans on the market performance/price (and can be customized in 3 colours biggrin.gif).

Good Luck and have fun with your build, Brian smile.gif

Please explain to how this push/pull configuration work's iv'e heard it so many time's but never really understood the meaning of it. So what fan controller should i be getting if i gotten the Enermax T.B. Silence 120mm and 140mm fan's or the Scythe gentle typhoon's? and if i gotten the Noctua NH-D14 should i replace the stock fan's on those or just leave it?

Ty, Brian you made the Corsair fan's sound really good biggrin.gif and tell me what CPU Cooler would you get if you had my build and the Corsair fan's with it? Also how many 120mm Corsair Fan's would you be getting and 140mm fan's you would be getting.

Thanks in advance

Well, are you going to be overclocking or not? And again, what is your price range?

It is hard to recommend a CPU cooler for you because your build on pcpartpicker is only at $1300 it is low for what I would typically be building so I don't know your price range. If I were building my PC I would pick a Corsair liquid cooling loop. Probably H100 or now H100i if I were you. It shows online that you will have clearance for a 240mm rad so 1 of those solutions I would chose. The reason I prefer corsair products over other companies is for their warranty and build quality. They pretty much have a no questions asked RMA service and you have lifetime technical support i believe.

The advantage of having a closed liquid cooling loop rather than and air cooler is less fans, less dust, less noise, looks better, cools better. Water has a higher specific heat capacity than water. the reason I am recommending the H100/H100i is that you can have a top 240mm rad so why not take full advantage of your cases cooling properties. You can also buy some more of those fans and set them up in pull/push config (4 fans on 1 radiator) to get the best results. If you are going to get the H100 you will want to replace the stock fans as they are like jet engines but the pump is dead quiet and it cools very well.

The H100i which was released within the last week I believe has some promising upgrades, such as LED lighting (which I noticed you liked on fans tongue.gif), easier mounting bracket, fans almost equal to the ones I suggested above (may still want to buy the corsair ones I recommended). There are more features which I cant think of at the moment.

The price difference between the H100 and H100i is $30 i believe.

I thin air coolers should become a thing of the past.

Good luck and have fun with your build, Brian biggrin.gif

Edit: H100/i will help if you are going to overclock.

Now should i replace the H100 stock fan's with the corsair one's? or different one's.
