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?

are you using those for all your fans?

front and rear?

Got my replacement mobo yesterday and finally got most bits working okay. However, my hard drives are not showing up in the bios and I can't install windows!

I have a 2tb HDD and a 250GB SSD, both installed in the trays with the built-in connectors. Anyone else had this problem? Or any idea how I can fix it / whereiI've gone wrong?

Transferred all the stuff yesterday, all I have to do now is replace all the default fans with my Corsair ones I have sitting at my parents house and add my NZXT Hue.

Thoughts?





I want to do a full water cool loop so bad but don't have the money. Also, my PSU isn't 100% modular and it's really big, I couldn't add a second HDD if I wanted because of the space it takes in the back.

Nah, just on the 3 Silverstone AP121s, as they come with them. Performance PCS was having a sale on them for $8 each (from their very overpriced $20) and they had LEDs, so I was like, eh, sure, lol.

3 Silverstone AP121's in the front, moving the 2 AF140L's to the top (also intake--moar positive pressure!).

What's better in the front panel, Two AF140 or Three AF120? and what about Three SP120?
post #3596 of 12446
Three SP120's, because of the dust filter.

You'll need fans with a high static pressure, as it'll be having to push/pull air through tiny spaces.
Which is why people use them on radiators.

Add me to the club please!



As you can see I had some fun with a white matte spray, it's not the best of paintjobs but it's pretty decent I think.
I replaced the front AF140s with 3 Arctic F12 PWM fans and next I'll be replacing the 2 exhaust fans with 2 Arctic F14s.
I'm a bit unsure what to do with lighting, I want the interior to be clearly visible but not outright glowing and also want the emitted light to be smooth and not hurt the eyes so any tips or recommendations will be appreciated.
