Okay guys, what fan controller do you recommend for this case? My requirement is that it has ambiguous looks for vertical mounting.

For my 540 I had purchased the Rheosmart fan controller, but I actually had to dremel through the case to make the damn thing fit. I do not recommend it.

I (until Friday) had a bitfenix recon... it wasn't bad but didnt have as many options as I wanted but does have the ablity to be controlled from the internet and has a touch screen.

I have since changed to the Akasa AK-FC-08BKV2 FC Six Fan Controller which I used in my work Dev build and found it was great.

I find it allows me to optimise my airflow with best temps and noise level depending on what you wish to be higher etc without costing too much

Hope that helps thumb.gif

You will be able to stack at least 2 7990 is there easy 3 might be a little more then it can handle.

 

 

Thank you very much I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get my rad in the front with that card lol.

Thanks man, I used the 3M vinyl wrap. Got it off Amazon, 20 bucks for a 1 x 6 ft sheet.

What is the size of your Rad.

I have 2 stacked 7970 with artic coolers which is the same length of the 7990. I know you can up 120 fans infront of the intake if you take the dust cover off. It might be a tight squeeze with a Rad in there.

The "before" has a unique color, and the "after" has a "classic color scheme". I would be more than proud to have either one....honestly.

I do believe the rad is 35mm thick. It's one of the XSPC slim rads.
