Nice! I tried wrapping my Sensei [RAW] and it didn't turn out so well so I'm gonna have to try again along with my Apex [RAW].

I get my case in tomorrow. Lucky for me my Asus 780 came with a back plate, which I can finally enjoy with a nice large window on the side of my case. thumb.gif

Guys, I forgot to ask one more thing. This is how I'll install the fans on my case:

TOP: 2 exhaust
FRONT: 3 intake
REAR: 1 exhaust

I'll already own 5 gentle typhoon. I'll install the WC on front, using 4 GT to push and pull (intake) and the last one above the WC (last front hole).

So, I still need 3 more fans, 2 for top and 1 for rear (exhaust).

Which fan do you recommend, with high airflow and low noise?

Thanks!

Why is every single fan in you system set as exhaust? There are no intakes.

As much as I love my 540 I am leaving her for a CaseLabs Mercury S8. Been a good run.

The Cougar Vortex are good, I run them on the rad but Scythe GT as plain intakes. Just slam 3 more S GTs in it.

If you're using just a 240mm rad, just use it on the top and install high airflow fans in the front.

But intake fans on radiator is better, because i'll have cold air passing through.

If I use top and front as intake, i'll have only rear to exhaust... I don't think that's a good choice. Or am I wrong?

And which fans you recommend?

Having the front and top as intake will be just fine, and will most likely give you the best temps for your overall system. There is plenty of vents to allow the air going in to be pushed out.

Cougar Vortex or scythe GT's.

That's what I do. thumb.gif

As far as fans, I'm partial to Corsair SP120s and Gentle Typhoons. Gentle Typhoons have a nicer tone, but undervolted Sp120s aren't very loud at all and still push a good amount of air. The Corsair SP120s definitely win in the looks department, too.
