Thats a good idea! It was a minor upgrade so the cpu block was already popositioned that way. I added 2x ek universal gpu blocks, xspc ax240 rad, d5 vario pump, ek res, and mayhems pastel white. I can't wait to get home from work and see the temps on my Gtx 670s.

Noob alert:
Question; just got anti-vibration mounts for my fans. Mine look pretty close to this:

Does the shorter end go into the fan or into the case?

I know it's a minor difference, but there has to be a reason they made one end shorter than the other....right?

The shorter piece goes into the case. At least that's how my Noctua fan mounts are.

Good day, what's better combination to replace stock fans on this case. H100i stock fan's are too noisy for my taste. Looking to replace them too. Any thoughs?
post #3588 of 12434
I'm digging through pictures, but figured I'd ask: anyone running a 45mm thick 360 up front with a 45mm think 240 up top? Trying to finalize the rest of my parts, but need to know which rad I can fit up front (already own the 45mm 240. fans will be run on the outside).

Also, if I wanted to run 45 degree fittings, I would still need a regular fitting right? Like: block->45->compression? I had found these http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17544/ex-tub-1565/Swiftech_Lok-Seal_45_Swivel_Elbow_Adapter_G14_Thread_-_Black_45D-SWV-G1-4-MFA-BK.html?tl=g30c101s1305#blank and am trying to figure out if I only need that or if I need another fitting to attach to it

This is my rig I've almost finished. Just needs a few bits and bobs and some more coolant for the reservoir.
It's made on a sort of budget, with most parts sourced second hand on eBay.
It has a maximus 4 z68, 2500k, gtx680.

I've got a UT60 360 and 240 with 780 Classies which are 11 inches long.

You don't need a regular fitting to run a 45 degree fitting. The one you linked is a fitting adapter, so you would need another fitting. However they do have 45 degree fittings and then you would have no need to buy another fitting.
