They're quiet at a low speed (I run them at around 40% I'd say) and still move a good bit of air. And if I'm ever doing some crazy benchmarking that requires more cooling, I turn those suckers up.

Thanks! Did you drill new fan holes in the case? For what it looks, it seems I could just drill new holes in fan frame. Anyway, Noctuas 140mm industrials arrive today so I do some testing and see if those do. But if I ever go custom loop, those are definetly my choise.

Did that last year in my triple Radiator Air 540 , You could just use AP181's and connect them to a fan controller , i also modified and expanded the front grill to accommodate for better airflow ( the filters are covering the back of the front panel )

^^ Nice! And yeah I drilled some new holes since the fans mount onto a metal frame, easily accommodating simple modding like this.

I decided to get another one of these cases, I've had two of the black ones but I got an amazon gift card from someone and decided to get the silver one to match my build and replace my beat up Fractal Define S. Looks pretty good IMO, not as fancy as some of the builds here but it gets the job done.

The 1TB Green is going away as soon as I can pony up the cash for an 850 EVO 1TB, and I have the DEMCiflex magnetic filter set and a second silver EPS 8-pin extension on the way.

My 1TB WD Black just arrived.. Potato pic of peace, the camera flash makes my fan LEDs look blue but they are actually white and has added some glare on the right side that looks like a smear.

First I want to say thanks to @Corsair Joseph for helping me with my h100 that died. What he and the Corsair staff did to help me was too great. I was not looking to rma the cooler at all. Just mentioned it died, and before I knew it I had a new H100iv2 at my doorstep. Seriously top notch customer service. Cant say enough nice things about what happened.

In the downtime I picked up a H105 and put it in push pull. Just a heads up to anyone looking for this cooler who has a sabertooth z77 motherboard. In push pull this thing barely fit... Talking maybe a 5 oclock shadow hair of room left between the fans and where it was hitting up against the motherboard!.. It still fit though! thumb.gif

In a noob fashion I took the picture without the asus rog sli bridge, plugged it in and was too lazy to take another picture.

*Cough, tits, cough* Nice painting in the backround.

Anyway, looks nice and clean. What kind of temps are you getting there?

Its a pretty cool painting! A bar here back in the day (in the early-mid 90s... in the long long ago) use to do a competition where you get one sheet of butcher paper and a box of original crayola crayons and you had an hour to draw something. My uncle won two years in a row and this was one of his pictures.

I am using the 7v adapters on the sp120 fans that are on the rad, they were jet engines otherwise. Im getting around 25-30*c idle temps and I ran prime for about 10 minutes and Im getting a high of 56*c on one of the cores. Others seem to stay around 50-54. So pretty solid temps!

Temps seem nice. I usually test with intel burn test, got stable 4,6GHz with 1.325V (i7 4930K hexacore) with temps maxing 75C. On gaming and everyday stuff, no core exeeds 55C.
