For reference, it was completely drowned out by the stock intel cpu cooler when gaming. Though that isn't saying much...

Currently, water cooling for me would bring me out of my budget. I'm planning to have my 120mm Noctua fan blowing straight into the blower so I hope that will help. If not, then I'll just deal with it until I can go water.

I believe the general consensus is that fans on the bottom don't help GPU temps much, if any. Of course it won't hurt anything either, but if your goal is low noise then you might want to reconsider adding another fan.

Another slightly wild idea, you could buy an open air card, remove the fans from it, then mount 2 120mm fans in the bottom. One as intake, the other as exhaust.
It would then be a simple matter of building a shroud of some sort around the card to stop heat from escaping into the case.
With a little jury-rigging you could probably use the pwm output from the card to run the fans too.

Sorry if this has been asked. Can this case fit two separate 120mm radiators? I was thinking of doing an AIO GPU and an AIO CPU unit. Obviously, the hoses / bulge in the radiator will have to face either up or down and not left or right like a normal 240mm radiator. Just wondering if there will be any clearance issues. Thanks.

Haha, no matter how many times I look at that, it still makes my eyes hurt, even though the use of interior space is impeccable. If you want to take a look at a cleaner dual 240 rad configuration, there's also this build log.

If money wasn't as big an issue for me, this would be the case I go with for my rig. So pretty

If anyone hasn't seen linus' mini build. The bracket included fits the h100.

Edit. Sorry that probably makes no sense. I meant I say anyone interested in the Asrock X99 ITX board, the included waterblock mount also fits a H100i

Has anyone put the Asrock X99 itx mothboard in this case with an h100i yet? Saw the linus video, but not sure if it would fit in this case, or if the screw would get in the way of the tubing.
