Don't worry Luna, your fans are good. You will get more static pressure from those sp fans than most of the fans on the market.

Thank you! Much appreciated, was about to remove them and rush back to the store then put an order in on new egg Lol. Still a month off from the new Asus board, but I'm meticulous about getting the best out of what I can get when it comes to new rigs.

As for a 1 TB Samsung EVO SSD, from what I"m reading up on , there doesn't seem to be the fear and or issue with depreciation like in the past with their new breakthroughs, figured I'd exchange my 250/500 back ( just bought them ) for the 1 TB since I"d technically be saving money this way. Anyone advise against it or go for it?

He's using an enermax 1500 watt. He just ordered this case, I'll let you know how fitment goes with it once he gets everything in. He's also has an insane water cooling set up because he's running a 3960x and the titans are softmodded to run at 1.3 volts. tongue.gif

Nice, more the reason why I'm considering WC, with 2 I think I'd do fine with air but after that its time to break down the walls and re-engineer. I'll see how 2 goes for now. I still have time to return the h100i though from what I've seen its pretty quiet.

Really depends what you plan on doing before you can define a "best" setup. I bought 7 SP120's (3 intake and 4 push/pull h100) and eventually upgraded to a 240 and 360mm rad. Also, the rear fan is a 140mm.

My 540:

what thickness are those rads? I want to use the same rads as well 80mm or 60mm on the top?
post #2096 of 12460
Looks like 60. I have a 60 as well, I don't think 80 would fit unless you put the fans up top in which you can't put the top panel on.

Correct. UT60 240 up top and UT60 360 up front. The top fans are millimeters from my ram and the front rad is millimeters from my graphics cards, it's pretty much maxed out.

How long are your cards? I've got classys and probably have to put 45mm rad up front.
post #2099 of 12460
Here's mine. The Lightning is longer than the classified I believe. I have a 30mm rad up front with fans on the inside, so you could do a push pull if you wanted.

Don't worry Luna, your fans are good. You will get more static pressure from those sp fans than most of the fans on the market.

Can you explain this? From my understanding, static pressure is measured on the turbulent side of the fan and basically quantifies its ability to keep air from escaping back through the blades. Therefore it only applies to the direction of airflow post fan, ie push config.
