Honestly if noise is your concern I'd consider a different case for your build. With my 240 and 120 on my twin 560's and single fx8350 I run most of my fans on high while gaming (including that noisy and fast 2500rpm corsair fans on the cpu). To reduce noise you need square footage on the radiator and this case is definitely limited.

Right now I have 2 3870x2 top cards in my case which, when they run at full load, sound worse than a 20 year old vacum machine. I control them a bit with rivatuner, but that seems to reset to 100% every now and then. I dont mind a bit of noise, anything that is less then what I'm hearing now will be great! I don't expect to get a perfectly silent pc when I switch to wc as I can also see where the limitations of this case are. But as I like this case and I'd like to once again have a wc'd pc, I'm willing to settle for some compromises smile.gif

It was just as if the mobo PCI slots where wonky but i kinda re-fitted the motherboard tray and rammed it in and it worked.

Granted this is a heavily modded case but this is what someone did to make an extra Radiator fit in the case. Also you can see that they have three GPU's and a heftily overclocked CPU.

I have one Loop currently with an FX-8350 Overclocked to 5 GHZ and my temps stay ~45-50 Degrees under full load. I just recently purchased a 120 rad and water blocks for my SLI GTX 670 FTW's as the fans on my GPU's are stupid loud.

Edit: Help if i Provide the Link http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/118-project-green-machine/page-7

I originally wanted a flat top so I could stack my Amp on top, but I think I like it this way. Thoughts?

Looks great, but I would ditch the zip ties you have for some of the tiny black ones. They would pretty much disappear with the corrugated black tubing. Other than that it looks cool.

I am getting ready to tear it all apart. I am going to send out the panels and chassis to get it hydro-dipped. I have some neat mods knocking around in my head that I want to try. thumb.gif

Plus, I need to learn how to sleeve all the cables properly. I want all the wires cut/extended to perfect lengths as well.

Going to be doing the same thing soon, my dad's *loaning* (I'm basically storing them for him) his old Wharefedale E50 speakers so will have to have the amp and cd player to stack under the haf-xb.
