No, its the H80(i) you can put in front of the R4. And besides, I have the R3, no removeable drive cages :-(

I run mine with an extra noctua fan for a total of three.. and hardly hear it.

My mb is flimsy, i noticed when building and the chaps over at Hardocp also noticed it in one of their reviews:

Fortunately the system fired right up and went through testing without any problems what so ever. In all the years I’ve worked with computer hardware I’ve never in my life seen a more fragile and flexible motherboard PCB.

I'm also in the same boat trying to build a silent stealth computer, Good Luck on your build

New pictures! Brought out my new photography gear especially for it.

Have decided to buy a Thermalright HR-02 Macho for the Heatsink, and will be getting the 3 Noctua case fan's hopefully next week.

I used the screw mounts that are in the back of the motherboard tray, however you can use velcro to stick them down.

I'm well aware of this, I owned an H100i. I had to RMA it because it had an unfixable pump sound, no matter what I tried.

Hey dude!

Yeah I'm currently selling my old keyboard to fund the CPU cooler, gotta wait till mid-April to order the Noctua fans! Then I should be done.

Might even buy a second monitor as well biggrin.gif

I've also seen that I can replace the fans on my GPU with a passive VGA cooler Which seems pretty awesome!
