It's a very good fan controller. I love using it, you can even change colours.

OK, time to end this project.
It's been hell of a bumpy ride and let's end it here.
First of all, it's a 350D.
What a expected surprise.
I finally got all working and I'm currently using it right now to type this final update (hopefully).
Unfortunately, I can't show you the cable management and I hid the SSD at the back.
Anyway, I want to thank everybody who supported me through the build and I wish I can do more.
Sad news is that I'm putting my amateur modding abilities to a rest as I will be focusing on studying overseas.
Hence why I built this system anyway, without further ado.
Enjoy the pictures.

Maybe it's clearance issue or maybe you don't want to cover up those pimped DIMMs, but I feel the rear heatsink fan is too close to the rear case fan, lowering each other's efficiency. If it's not the above two issues, maybe move the fan to the front of the heatsink? redface.gif

I think is better as it provides a sort of tunnel airflow. But hey what do I know about airflows, I can't move the front because the high profile heatsink doesn't let me.

I see. That's what I thought. I'm surprised you can even fit the SilverArrow in there.

But no, it won't be tunnel effect unless they're pushing same CFM at same static pressure, meaning, identical fans.

If I was you, since you already have two exhaust fans on the top, I can bet you won't lose much performance or have higher temps if you remove the rear case fan, and let the Enermax push it out.

All in all, nice build mate. Glad to see it all together. thumb.gif
