Believe it or not, fan fitment isn't the problem. The main problem is my tubing plans, as I had planned to run a tube from the EX360 on the motherboard side to the top Monsta, and run straight down to the bottom Monsta. But I totally forgot about the power supply that needs to mount between the 2 of those pigs! SO stupid. I swear insomnia is killing my brain, slowly but surely!

but should try these http://koolance.com/fan-120x38mm-184cfm


they will look better and move some air!!! i am going to test tomorrow and will let you know about the sound on them..
Holy crap dude, 59db!! You'll go deaf with those things! Then again, you're married and have 2 girls, so with 3 women in the house, you have probably developed "selective hearing". biggrin.gif

Not that loud at lower RPM I would think.. but like you said I am deaf anyway rolleyes.gif

You can give it a try, but I'd bet you'd get better results using smaller fans in push/pull instead of a larger one like that in push or pull only.

If you end up unhappy with those fans, and wanted fans that gave you tons of range, look at the high rpm Gentle Typhoons. You would want to rewire them for PWM (the board is designed for it, they just only come with 3 wires) so you can run them between 0% and 100% instead of the 60% to 100% available from undervolting.

Good suggestion, as I just bought 6 of those. smile.gif I'm not sure if I'll be using the Triebwerk fans yet, or where they'll go if I do, since I'm still working out how to set up this loop. My original plan (which changes by the second) was to use the 3 Triebs on the EX360 above the motherboard (pulling air in from the top), and use 3 Typhoons each on the Monstas (intake pull on the top rad, exhaust push on the bottom one). I figured with that much rad, I didn't need to worry about push/pull, and there won't be much real estate behind the motherboard, since the HDDs will be mounted there, with the power supply in the middle spot.

EDIT: also, all 3 fan sets would be run off a fan controller, one set per channel. I have a few controllers lying around (GVANS 30w x 6, NZXT Sentry Mix 50W x 6, Sunbeam 30w x 3).

If you let the top monsta push air into the 'side compartment' and let the bottom radiator pull it out, it comes down to sandwiching rads which is a bad idea.
It's better to let them both breathe cold air in, I bet they'll manage to exhaust the air somehow, either through the PSU or through another fan you slam on the back.

^this

I'd put the top pulling in from the top, the bottom pulling in from the bottom, and vented out the front/back.

For my previous post, here's the OCN post about the PWM mod: http://www.overclock.net/t/1045524/gentle-typhoon-pwm-mod

Hmm, I thought with so much distance between the rads, sandwiching wouldn't be an issue. I thought you only had an issue when the 2 rads were close together. Oh well, that's an easy enough fix, and you guys sound like you know what you're talking about, so I'll do exactly that when the time comes! Thanks for setting me straight!

If you want a full run-down on why, I'd be happy to explain, but suffice it to say that the air has to go and mix with the atmosphere to disperse the heat back to ambient.

That explanation will do nicely sir, thanks! smile.gif You guys have me thinking about exhaust now. There isn't any on the power supply side of the M8. The door on that side is ventilated, but there's no exhaust fan mount on that side. I'm assuming with all that intake air, the positive pressure will simply force the warm air out through the door vents, and out of every other crevice of the case. I was going to add another 120mm intake fan to the HDD cage too. I won't be short on positive pressure, that's for sure!
