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

I got the Rev 1 pcb spare, as I removed it cause I didn't plan on ever using as an xdock as my main drive is in there.

Edit: never mind you're asking for the new one.

Sorry you'll need to speak up, ive got 6 sp120's on on my hexa 720 rad. In my opinion phobya g silents are a bit quieter but half the price and move just as much air.

From Martins Liquid Lab's most recent fan testing. The AP 15's are really hard to beat at any speed above 1000rpm. He also has youTube style videos detailing the actual sound of a particular fan at a given speed. Quietness is one thing, but it's the quality of the noise that also comes into play. I've used nothing but GT's since 2009.

While the noise blocker is really nice at slower speeds, the Gentle Typhoon rules the high speed area. I wouldn’t call either one silent or perfect in noise quality, they do produce a different tone which seems slightly more whiny with bearing noise than others, but the noise level is remarkably low in comparison. The Corsair SP120 is actually not too bad at higher speeds as well, but it does have a slightly lower maximum where the GT AP-45 is doing just a bit better.

Overall. I was a bit surprised by the Noiseblocker e-loop B12-3 at the mid speed range, very good noise quality makes them competitive with the GTs. The cougar fans seem to do well at very slow speeds, but they are a bit limited in higher speeds and didn’t do as well as I hope based on forum comments. The Noctua NF-F12s do well at very slow speeds, but very poor at the higher speed relative to the forum comments. I don’t understand why they are so often so highly recommended except I know of a few reviews done out there without proper tools that are likely spreading bad information as usual. The corsair SP120 fan also surprised me a bit. It did seem to do a little better in noise quality than the H100i fans, but it’s not as strong a performer in noise level as many forum recommendations seem to convey.

Lol, sorry brotha, wasn't trying to offend =)

SP120's are good rad fans too. I prefer eLoops over them though personally. Phobya G-Silents are nice for low-speed colored fans. Don't really compare with the higher level rad fans though. It all depends what you need, GT's shine at higher speeds, alot of the fans on here that people recommend (like Noctua's) can't even reach those higher speeds...

Yeah, that's what sold me on the GT AP-00/45's originally.

Has anyone done any comparison tests regarding this?

I have not tested the difference, but without 80mm fans installed, so basically a stock case, I doubt there is any notable difference in temp between the rear hdd cage and the x-dock. However, with 80mm fans installed as an intake blowing on the rear hdd's, they should be cooler than in the xdock.

My solution to this was to add an intake fan on the xdock side, and have those two 80mm fans exhausting. Both drive bays are now cooler than stock. Eventually I will have an intake beside the rear hdd cage for even more airflow and more cooling potential.

I use the Noctua NH-C14, very good and keeps my 3770k nice and cool and it fits no problem

Hey all! Can I Join the Club?
I've been around the site a little while, and have finally decided to post my build!
Loving All the Cube Cases that have been coming out.

Originally Painted My Case All Silver, But I Decided to Change My Mind :S



Painted it Black and Blue Afterwards. The paint Got a little botched on the Left Panel frown.gif
Left The Template to Tag on My Name too Long mad.gif






Added a Fan on The Right Panel To Cool HDD's thumb.gif


Quite honestly For my First time Using Pressure operated cutting tools, I'd Say Not Bad! tongue.gif
