post #2934 of 10491
my next plan is to order 2 left side panels and 1 new window top panel. I want a bigger window than the standard on top. if the cuttig fails, I still got my original window top. side panels also 2 if one gets stuck. where mesh is, should get in a window and under it i will fit in my 2 fan controlers and the media display, that now is in the 2 5,25" bays.

in the future, there I will put in a Icy Dock MB153SP-B "FatCage". the right front, where are original the 2 hot swap 3,5" I will cut out a bit more, to fit in my 2 5,25" ODD's which are now used external.

He's been around since then because he spent a little time adding people to he club, plus we exchanged a few PMs regarding the picture links in the OP

Hey, haven't posted in a while, so figured I'd post my minor changes and ask some questions.

Swapped out a old DVD Drive for a nice new LG BluRay + DVD-RW (OEM) drive for $49, looks sexy, but it puts the front of my XB to shame (Just plain front). Secondly, purchased a Hauppauge TV Tuner card for my antenna I built, waiting for that to arrive (Should be Monday). Lastly, building another PC, this time for my little sister's birthday, nothing fancy, just so she can do her Minecraft. Everything but MB and Case have arrive, those should be Monday too. So much for that weekend plan. Anyways.

I have great temps on my GPUs and CPU when I game, 60-65C, but to get that I must turn up my fans to exhaust more air. The noise is not the issue, but the heat coming out is. The summer temperatures are coming and it's already toasty in here, so I was thinking of watercooling the GPUs (already H50 on CPU) but don't really know where to start. I know it'll cost a lot to get, so I'm hoping for lost cost while keeping quality.

I've been looking around at blocks, mainly EK, but I'd like your guy's opinions as you have more experience. I don't plan on any fancy tubing, just clear with distilled water, plain pump, res, and rad, not like I'm showing off. My main concern would be leakage and fitting a rad in behind the front mesh (have two 120mm x 38mm on inside of case, they won't fit in front). Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

**I may not respond today or tomorrow, I mainly read here when I have just a few moments, so, I'll be reading up and taking notes.

I run two Galaxy 660 Ti cards in SLI with one card slot between (with stock coolers on them).

With the right fans, there is no question that you would get much better airflow. But pretty much no matter which fans you choose, 4 x 120mm will be louder than 1 x 200mm.

Noise "stacks". Not as in 2 x 20db = 40db, but every new source adds a little more to the perceived noise.
For example:

Lets say you go for some really quiet 10db fans. As they are all the same (it would be different if they didn't have the same db output), each one adds 3db to the perceived noise level. With 4 that comes to 19db (10+3+3+3=19).
A decent 200mm. is commonly around 18-20db.

Upgrade time for myself! Need to know what kind of water pump or pumps I will need cause I don't know much about WC. New build will be 4770k, gigabyte sniper z87 mobo and 2 gtx 780's. I am going to use all xspc ray storm blocks on cpu and gpu so I can have all green led. Of course it will be haf xb case with 280mm rad in front, 120mm in the rear. But what pump and reservoir do you guys recommend. Dual bay combo would be fine as well cause I don't plan on having a optical drive

question: do you want a bay reservoir or is a different reservoir OK?
As far as pumps I would recommend swiftech mcp35x or the swiftech mcp655

For the HAF xb, wouldn't a bay res be a bad idea? Unless the pump is downstairs too. Perhaps I am just thinking about my own swiftech h220 setup where a res would have to go above somewhere.
