The basement is the worst part of this case. Great for hiding things but it is a real source of shame for me!

Beware, the following image may be unsettling.

Even having it on a little car remote would make more sense IMO. That's how IT DIVA rigged hers up. Logisys has a Car Remote Molex Kit.

Pretty much everything i know about cooling and modding, i learned from OCN and the people/sites connected to the community. Also from saying the wrong answer and having people correct me tongue.gif
PWM has alot of advantages though. For instance, the Aquaero can handle 2.5A per channel, more with the passive heatsink, and even more with the waterblock. So 2.5A @ 12V = 30W as opposed to the Sunbeam's 45W. But if you're running PWM fans off the Aquaero, the fans are being powered straight from the PSU. So the 30W would be irrelevent. PWM doesn't need to use the resources of the unit that's controlling it. Only uses the RPM & PWM signals (well as long as you have a pwm splitter). So even though the Sunbeam can handle more Watts per channel, the PWM capability of the Aquaero 6 can handle 10 times more fans per channel

Cheers man I'm always looking for more knowledge on pc building. As for PWM,for now I think I'll stick with manual control of my fans. Probably the left handed control freak in me coming out lol.

I am trying to reduce my excessive fan dependancy. First off the hexa 720 rad has been sidelined in favour of 2 360mm rads piggy backed with 9 fans. Which is a saving of 3 fans wink.gif so only 15 left to power now.

I hope the last few days have gone well for you, kpoeticg. Had a similar thing myself a few years back. Not an easy thing to get out of.

I'm a firm believer in function over form up to a certain point. Unfortunately Noctua crashed straight through that point and kept accelerating HARD when they released their sublimley efficient fans in latrine brown sicksmiley.png

I always find it funny how people use the most obscene "colours" to describe Noctua's fans. I personally like them and they have really grown on me. I believe they were a really good choice for Noctua, you always know a Noctua Fan when you see it. I don't think any other brand can say that.

This isn't my mess I swear.


Okay I'm getting this crap cleaned up when I get my new fans. I recall being in a hurry to install my new GPU when I got it.

Excuses, excuses.

You probably don't want to see the cable management in the bottom of my case. (I have to deal with extra-long sleeved extensions.)
