post #8351 of 10491
Hey guys, I need a lil advice here... I'm in the market to get some more green led accessories for my haf xb case. Adding 2 more 120mm green led fans for the push/pull config on my H60 on the rear of the box and what I want help or suggestions rather, for green led strips quantity and positioning. Below you will see pic of the layout of my rig. Currently I'm looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812551003

Please give me some input and your thoughts... Is this to long? What would you recommend? Any input is greatly appreciated. I will put my purchase on hold till I get some feedback. Thank you! thumb.gif

Sweet setup :thumb:

 

It's probly cheapest just to get a 5 Meter strip. Search "Green SMD 5050 300" on amazon or ebay. You can cut the strip every 3 led's so it can be any size(s) you want. Order a bag of connectors for em for like 5 bux. LED strips look best when you can't see the actual strip. So just play around with hiding it; under the mobo tray, around the inner rim of the roof, etc

Greetings, new to overclock forum here. Also new owner of CM HAF XB Evo here.
Been using gaming laptop for few years, but decided to go back for gaming desktop. Since the HAF XB is recommended on many web, i decided to go with this case.

Asus Z87pro
I7 4770 With Noctua NH U14S cooler.
8gb Gskill RipjawX 1600
Asus GTX770 2gb
1tb WD Blue, soon ssd samsung pro 256gb.
Corsair HX650

Sorry for the messy setup, I'm not expert on cable management. Very good case, spacious and easy to build. Been using this case for almost 3 months now.
I notice the air circulation on the below compartment is not good enough. On room temp 22c, cpu 29c, gpu 31c and HDD 30c Idle. However when summer and room temp 27c, the hdd can jump to 36c, gpu 38c and cpu 36c idle.
I have few questions here:
Can I use Noctua 140mm fan for the front case? Will it help with air circulation compared to the stock 120mm cm fan?
Also, the HDD temp is quite high, even though I already installed 2x80mm noctua fans. Is this normal?
I will buy samsung 840pro soon, is it better to put it on the front X dock? or at the rear HDD cage?

36C on a HDD is perfectly fine. My sata 2 drives used to reach 55+C when in the hotswap bay (I have XB rev 1) I swapped out both drives for a single sata 3 driven and the temps have been better though.

i got in frnt two 140mm corsair fans, what would be best way to get away hot air from video cards, as u can see there are acrylic panels, so if really needed i could put there fan.

Thanks for the reply. is it better to put ssd on hotswap bay or drive cage?
post #8359 of 10491

If you keep the drive cage i'd put it there. No need to hotswap your SSD. You can really stick an SSD anywhere

Quick fan test before I start cutting up the case to make room for the rads in there.
The two rads pretty much cover the entire top of the case.



I just can't get over how pretty those fans are. And silent.
