1. 2 x 140mm Phanteks INTAKE (the ones come with the case) | 1x Rear NF-a14 EXHAUST | 1x Top near rear NF-A14 EXHAUST | Corsair H110i GTX Top EXHAUST with silent wings 2 on it.
2. The same setup just with 1 more NF-A14 bottom as INTAKE
3. 2 x 140mm Phanteks INTAKE | 1x Rear NF-a14 EXHAUST | Corsair H110i GTX Top EXHAUST with silent wings 2 on it.

I would run all fans at 900-1000 rpm controlled by the HUB. And with option 1 and 3 I would let the PSU cover on. In every szenario I will remove the HDD cages cuz I only got SSD

Which of those 3 would you think give me the best cooling performance?

My System:

- i7-5820k w/ AiO Corsair h110i GTX top exhaust
- GTX 980Ti Super Jetstream
- 16GB Corsair RAM
- 1000w Corsair PSU
- 1x 500gb SSD (4TB on external HD)


Thanks
Qgon
Making it too complicated. Stick with only the Silent Wings fan.
As for top just the H110 is enough. No bottom intake.

Is the Luxe only one you can get?

I already got those fans from my previous system :/ and I dont wanna buy new ones !

so you think option 3 is best? and which other case should i get? I was thinking between the luxe and the Evolv atx. But I'm afraid the ATX will get too hot when I put the H110i as exhaust on top...

While H110i is a noisy piece of garbage (sorry, but that's what I know to be true) it will for in top of Evolv ATX as long as you block all holes in the radiator mount tray not covered by radiator. But if you do not already have the H110i, don't waste money on it. Spend a little more and get something like Swiftech H240 X2 .. a quality built pre-filled kit that flows many many times more coolant, has a much much better all copper radiator, and if you want to expand it to include a GPU water block and another radiator later on you can. All of this and in a package that if something goes wrong you can take it apart and fix or replace parts as needed instead of throwing the whole cheap CLC away and having to replace the whole system.

OK thanks, that's the one I have. and is the starter / combo kit necessary?

Finally go the thing somewhere close to finished:

Currently leaktesting, but it looks promising smile.gif

OK, long time overdue but a new doctor has given me a little longer lease on life. I've made progress and hit some potholes. Hoping you guys can help us out and give some opinions also. I plan on filling the system through the ports on the top 360 radiator or depending on the layout maybe through the second reservoir.... or the Monsoon...... I think it can be done depending on the final layout. The monsoon is going to have to be mounted horizontal with the entry being on the lowest hole on the side without the side entry ports and the exit will have to be one of the side entry ports due to it being the highest point so the res will stay full. It's really more for looks and to cover up the sound cards on the motherboard. Here is a parts list.
EK 360 PE up top
EK ram block for 4 dimms
EK copper/plexi block w/led
Hardware Labs Nemesis in thee front.
EK vardars in push
Primochill 10/13 petg and black fittings/some fittings like drain etc were other makes
MSI Z170 M7
6700k
Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme
Corsair 1200 watt
Phanteks Luxe
Bill Owen MNPC Tech plexi front panel
1/2 inch plexi screwed and glued on rear where HD rack was removed to fill the hole and provide plenty of rigidity to the frame. She's solid.
2 meter Phanteks LED
Georgia Bulldog Theme

Fill Ports:


Mock up using two reservoirs:


360 rad w/vardars and LED strip:


The monsoon in this pic will have to be reversed so the side inlets can be pointing up so it will completely fill with coolant. It will be bolted to the PSU cover....... all depending on suggestions and implementation:


EK 3.2 PWM and drain. Everything plugged off to prevent foreign object entry.


Coolant return and drain setup mounted on EK vardar 120 to keep pump cool, I heard these run hot:


I will have to reverse the monsoon so the exit port will be higher than the tube to keep it full depending on suggestions:


Plan on using the lowest hole on this end of the monsoon as coolant entry:


One of the two side ports which will be oriented up will be the exit of the Monsoon........... I guess in this config I would have to use a second res?


Suggestions on layout, flow etc, etc. Hesitant at this point, I've got a bunch of ideas like splitting the returns??? Do I need to run dual pumps? Since I delayed 7 months because of my health and basically lost a whole gen should I upgrade to 1070, 2011 v3 or am I good. Occasionally play battlefield 4 but I'm not very good at it. Usually get my arse handed to me by some kid with a PS3. hehe Thanks to anybody who will share knowledge/preferences about anything or aspect of the build. Also, plan on water and the chemicals from ek for a month or two keeping an eye of the filter on the return then breaking it down and checking the block for debris, cleaning, removing the filter and then filling with blood red and pushing the clocks. I need to post a picture of the fan controller and get your guys input on the connections/splitters/etc. I'm running the pump off the CPU2 pwm and running the controller off the cpu1 header.

So I got my computer up and running, and everything seems to be working fine in my Enthoo Primo. Except for maybe the most crucial piece in the build, which is the Phanteks fan hub. I know for a fact that I followed the instructions to the dot, and I'm only using 3 pin fans . Yet for some reason none of them are running, doesn't matter if I run them via the PWM cable to my motherboard or directly to my PSU with a molex, they are just not running.

I know a lot of people have had issues with this thing, so while I tried to do a search in this thread about that I simply don't want to read though 60 pages of irrelevant data just to come up with nothing in the end. So in that regard, does anyone have any pointers in how I should use this thing and as to why it may not be working?

Unfortunately, I have not seen this happen at any time except when the hub is dead. Time for an RMA.

Guess so, I'll just run it all of my fan controller then and ask Phanteks if they would send the part needed or if I need to send the entire case in.
