Those are some nice pics. Well done

It's clean and beautifull but red ram waste everything

Thanks Trama!

Feudi - Completely agree. Been thinking of solutions and just got a RAM fan / cooler in blue to cover them up. Not sure how it will look in my rig but hopefully will block out the red heatspreaders and look better than it currently does!

Just upgraded to Air 540 and just wanted to say that the AF140L stock fans are really really loud ie. tons of motor noise. Is this normal?

Im going to assume since the AX240 is about 20mm slimmer than the RX240, an AX120 SHOULD fit. Took a picture and the rear fan is a 140 so it would be smaller than the fan meanimeaningmg youd fit it inwin with just enough room. Id wait for someome elses answer though. Im new at wcand stuff still. Sorry for iffy photo. Took with my tablet. Hope it helps thumb.gif

FWIW, I measured 52mm from the back face of the case to the edge of a 120mm fan. You'll have to consider the dimensions of the radiator to see how tight it's going to be. Anyway, I'm not sure if this helps you or not, but I figured I'd post it anyway. redface.gif

Hey guys, just finished my build. I'll upload the full pics in a bit.

Question for ya'll, though. I'm not really happy with the stock case fans, and was looking to replace them with something quieter/no LEDs. I know a lot of you have switched them out, so I figured I'd ask for suggestions. I'd gladly go with the Noctua F12s but they're too damn ugly. I really want some good airflow through this thing, but I simply can't deal with the noise.

Also, anybody have experience wiring switches to control fan LEDs? rolleyes.gif

The Corsair SP120 Performance edition is always a popular choice. Gentle Typhoons AP-15s are another very good option that many here have opted to use.


I usually remove the LEDs from fans because I don't care for the "spotlight" effects they create on the fan blades. I want a more balanced glow effect behind the fan and throughout the case, so I use LED strips like the NZXT Hue or a simple CCFL kit in a pinch.

If you want to wire switches to LEDs, I'm sure you could do it with a little custom work. The LEDs should have a positive and negative lead wire. You just splice the switch into the positive lead wire. Just be certain you have the positive lead though, because the negative lead also functions as a ground wire, and splicing the switch into negative lead will also interrupt your ground wire connection. If you can't tell which is the positive lead, you should be able to figure it out with a Multimeter.

You might want to double check this with someone who is more knowledgeable about electricity and circuits though. I know enough to get by, but the above statements about using the positive lead for the switch are really only true when the circuit is a DC circuit. For an AC circuit, you would wire the switch into the negative lead. Where my knowledge falls short here, is whether or not the fans are a DC circuit running off the transformer in the PSU, or if it's an AC circuit. The PSU itself is definitely an AC circuit, but I'm not sure if that is still true for the devices powered by the PSU.

Any feedback about this fan?
