Well at 100% they're pretty darn loud, but with how much air they can move at like, 50%....there's almost no difference or need to go that high. They're quieter than the fans that come on our case.

Hey peeps!

Im looking to finally do my build in this case (only took a year) ((thanks Vagur for reminding myself))

I have a few questions though. I want to watercool, bad. Always wanted to do one, just never had the reason, well now I finally do.

I plan on using EK radiator a XE360 in the front with push/pull push in the grill and pull in the case. Then a PE240 in the top with just push out of the top.

I will be using EK Vardar 120mm fans the 1450RPM models, I want the build to be quiet and perform well.

I will be using a EVGA X99 classified mobo, as I will eb getting the THOR full mobo/CPU/VRM waterblock. I will also be watercooling dual 780ti's.

My question is though, what pump should I use? and what res, or res/pump combo. I'ver thought about doing a longer rez along the bottom of the case laying horizontal, but I'm unsure.

Thoughts? Words? Food? Anger? I appreciate it all, especially food, and sleep biggrin.gif

I've really given consideration to gutting the the bottom and laying a res horizontal down there. Personally I have a DDC w/ Res running vertically along the back, in front of the video cards. I think your radiator and fan setup is the best for the case. Most of us seem to be running the 240/360 combo. I'm using Noiseblocker BlackSilent Pros and it's virtually whisper quiet.

Am I going to thick on the radiators you think? the XE is a 60mm and the PE is 45 I believe. I don't want it to look cramped is all

Picture for reference:



The front one is an XSPC EX360; Dimensions: 121 x 35.5 x 395mm (WxDxH)

The Top is an XSPC EX240; Dimensions: 121 x 35.5 x 275mm (WxDxH)

To give you reference of how cramped things might get when things are bigger than 35mm

Top is exhaust in push, front is intake in push.

The more I look the more I want to cut the hard drive cages out of the bottom, plate it flat, and try a horizontal res down there, but boy are they a pain to fill.

I did an EX360 front intake and an EX280 top exhaust. It was a bit of a pain as it is a very tight fit. The fittings for the ex280 almost touch the IO metal backplate. I wanted to do the EX280 bottom intake and EX360 front intake and exhaust from the top which I still may do when I upgrade. The EX240 and EX360 will be a very nice fit and should not be cramped at all.

From that picture I think I'll move the 360 to the PE360 going from a 60mm to a 45mm. I need to get my case from home to do better measuring
