Redid my loop today. Downsized, selling off my 360 and 120 rad to hopefully get a thick 280. Think that will be better size wise, had planned to just do two thick 480's at first.

For example: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15113/ele-1045/Tailed_Amber_3mm_LED_w_2-Pin_Mobo_Header_Connector_LED-3T-A.html?tl=g6c455s1602
Ah well, I'll soon find out.

That makes sense, as the voltage that you measured on the power button LED is from the motherboard header. I could be wrong but personally I think that is designed to operate a standard 3.3V LED. I can see companies selling 5V leds as prevents the risk of having a motherboard that supplies higher current than around 3V. A 5V led on a 3V source is not an issue, but if you put in a 3V on a 5V source, pretty sure we all know what happens then.

On my X79 Dark, the 3.3V LEDs have been working fine no issues.

I guess that explains why my CPU Block LEDs don't work (used the Fan LED # 6)

You can fit an XT45 in push. I think adding a pull fan will be cutting it very close if you have a 480 in the bottom. If it will fit, the fans will be touching the 480. I can't see the benefit of no airflow exiting the fan. biggrin.gif

You can do push/pull with an ST30. You will have roughly 13-14mm of clearance from the fan to the radiators with a pull fan. I may eventually add another set of fans but this was an area I skimped on in my blown budget.

Here is a photo with a 25MM fan in there to give you an idea of clearance.

ok, the pic makes sense, but im a little confused, is the one on the left the side and the right the 480?

 

which rad is which?

 

Thanks
