To answer your questions to the best of my knowledge:

1+2. I believe the issue is resolved, and all XB's sold today (non-EVO and EVO versions) have the updated pcb. It now uses a SATA power conector harness soldered onto the board instead of molex, and the SATA data ports point upwards.

3. Without modification to the case, drives in the x-dock will be running hotter than those in the hdd cage. Also I found that cable management was easier in the hdd cage than the x-dock bays because your psu cables run near the pcb and space can be tight.

4. In the non-EVO version the fans are garbage, but I cant say much about the jetflo's in the EVO version.
Thanks for the quick reply! Do you know how much hotter the drives would be running in the X-Dock? If it's just a couple of degrees than that's no biggie, but if it's significantly more, then that's a strong argument for using the rear drive cage. Has anyone done any comparison tests regarding this?

Upgraded X-Dock? I've looked at CM's published chart about the differences between XB and XB Evo, but didn't see anything about the X-Docks. Can you clarify?

Thanks for the info re: JetFlo's. I guess I'll just have to try them out and see how well they work with my setup.

Well they sell Jetflo's without LED's also. But if the blades were curved like Xtraflo's, then definitely not Jetflo's. Sounds like Blademasters, but it could definitely be just Xtraflo's that don't have transparent blades and only come with the EVO. 

 

Blade design is definitely fan-specific though. It they're not shaped like Jetflo's then they're not 

 

Edit: @IndrekHaav, the X-Dock PCB only came with a Molex Power for a short time on the Rev.1 XB. When they released the Rev.2/Refresh, they made it with Sata Power. 

 

By the time the EVO came out, the X-Dock came with Sata Power. It wouldn't be considered an upgrade on the EVO because it was a change that was made before they released the EVO

D'oh! Should have realised you meant the hot-swap PCB. Thanks for clarifying!

Because the Ap15's are going in my M8. I wish I could still find the AP15's somewhere..
post #7746 of 10491

Ahh, gotcha!! 

 

I'm pretty sure eLoops are quieter than SP120's. I've never had SP120's in person though.

For example the front panel of the HAF XB is rather constrictive since the air has to be pulled through the front mesh, dust filter, and the thick plastic mesh of the plastic front panel.

I would take a look at the Noctua NF-A15. It has about 10% less CFM than the Prolimatech, but has over 1.5 times the static pressure. This will let it actually achieve more of it's rated airflow as soon as things get more restrictive than open air. IT is also just as quiet.

Oh I was just talking about using them as an exhaust. There are much better high static pressure fans out there. Gentle Typhoon make some great ones but they have some limited color schemes.

There's no Prolimatech PRO-USV14 here. The only Prolimatech fans available here are just Vortex series, which come with LED. I'm considering Noiseblocker fans though, which are as good as Noctua fans, but they have black fans. Unfortunately, they aren't available here. frown.gif

It's rounded fan, right? Will it fit when there are two of them in front? Since it's 150mm with 140mm mounting. I'm afraid it will collide with front mesh, since the design of haf xb front mesh isn't all flat. Btw, how is your hardware temperature using NF-F12? Graphic cards, CPU? Is it getting much cooler than using those which come with haf xb?
post #7749 of 10491

Lol, Noiseblocker fans are incredible compared to Noctua's. Noctua's are decent enough, but far overrated.

 

For Chassis Fans, you really don't need to worry about SP. Just want good CFM with low noise, plus any aesthetics you need.

I use thermalright ty-1's in my xb, had to drill some new holes to mount them in the front though (or you could use 120-140 adapters), so have 2 in the front and 2 on my noctua heatsink then used 2 cooler master 200mm fans 1 black and 1 white to make a matching top fan and then used an nzxt rifle 120mm fan in the back, all does the job nicely and all controlled off the mobo being as the ty-147's are pwm so a simple splitter sorts that

Defo cool n quiet :-D

Anyone know where I can get spare screws for the top fan? Or anyone have any I could send postage costs for? I'm in the UK and cooler master don't wanna know

Also would be nice to get the new xdock pcb as I have the original but seeing how asking for screws worked out don't think asking for the pcb will work out either
