I got some of my parts so I started had no trouble fitting 280x60mm in push pull confg. with Asus Maximus V Extreme mobo and G-Skills Ripjaws Z mem. My GTX-760s even fit with res. mounting bar intact.

I saw this case, and bought it right away, its my dream case, from what i can see. With that said, there is one thing i cant seem to be sure off.

I am going togo with 480 in the top, but how thick a rad can i fit,when i want to do push/pull? 45mm?

This question is asked every cupla pages it seems smile.gif. A 120x480 is an easy fit at thicknesses up to 45mm ..... 60mm will fit on most MoBos .... so the usual question is what am I giving by dropping from 60mm to 45 mm ? Ya giving up about 7 watts of cooling w/ 1250 rpm fans

The XT45x480 gives ya 296 watts of cooling according to martins testing at 1250 rpm whereas the UT60x480 gives ya 303 watts ...

Tho....despite all that being said, I'd highly recommend a 420 instead.

1. The XT45x420 gives ya 302 watts in push pull .... just 1 watt less than the UT60x480....and 6 more than the XT480
2. The XT45x420 fits in while allowing the top rad ports to be used as convenient
3. The XT45x420 ($85 rad + 6 x $16 for fans = $181) is $60 cheaper than than the XT45x480 ($105 + 8 x 16 = $233)

I have 8 Phanteks SP140s running off my 1 amp rated MoBo header.

Have to love it when a plan comes together. biggrin.gif

I've been playing with the idea of changing the top vent mesh with 4.5mm hexagonal holes.. and probably front as well.

I thot Jesse mentioned that too.....this is 24' x 12"

Need 20" x 7"

The 280 shouldn't be bad at all since ya don't gotta do the tilt and rotate dance.... only thing ya generally gotta worry about is the 8 pin EPS cable access after the fact and the MPCIE combo cards on the Maximus VI series and VERY tall MoBo heatsinks..... The 760s are a piece of cake.....even 780s no problem if water cooled (except for Lightning / Classified).

As you progress with other parts purchases, there's a dimensional drawing in post # 1000 with all dimensions and clearances.

Looking at ya pics makes me wish the Phanteks fans were all white

As far as my build goes, i will be running 1x Alphacool 480 Monsta in the buttom with 8x GT AP15s

The plan was to run 480 Alphacool 45mm with 8x GT AP15s, and then another 240mm push/pull on the side. I am rally looking for silenced system, as that plan failed last time.

4770K
MaximusVI formula, planning the EK blocks for it.
2x 7970's with EK uni VGA blocks.

I am sure i should have enough damn cooling this time, but the idea of going for the 45mm 420, aint a stupid one, being that it will make life much easier as far as airing out the system.

Right now, i have 2 issues.

1, I really hate 140mm fans, non of them tickle my fancy as much as GT's do (and i just bought 12) (dont worry, non will go to waist lol)
2, I need to finda PCB where i can plug all my fans into, for power, but still be controlled by my Aquaero LT 5, any ideas, i know the case come with one, but does it let me control it like i wish?

Edit:

How are the Akasa Viper?

im going for the PWM hub thats in the case. (yes you can control all your fans with it). and then a NZXT Grid on that hub for my 480 puch/pull fans.

That's why I recommend the 420 / 280.... increased fan performance at lower noise

-4770K - In my build also

- MaximusVI formula, planning the EK blocks for it. - in my build, minus the EK blocks...redundant and extremely difficult to plumb with rigid acrylic.

-2x 7970's with EK uni VGA blocks - went with twin 780s w/ full cover short blocks.... have 25% OC on core, 20% on memory and boost clock peaking at just under 40% OC.

Last year the 140s got their asses whipped, but there's year's 140's swept the floor with the 120s in SPCR's testing.... the 140s took 4 of the top 5 spots. In the 1st round Phanteks took top spot .... and the only 120mm in the top 5 (4th place) was the Noiseblocker B12-2 ..... the Scythe GT 120-12 took 6th place and the Corsair AF120s took 8th. The GT 140mm took 11th place.

I had 10 SP140s on my build list but at time of purchase, they only had 5 in stock ..... I'm running a delta T of like 8C with just 5 fans in push at 1200 rpm..... GPU temps at 38C last nite's testing under Furmark. CPU testing tonight .... but expecting to beat the 74-ish at 4.6C which is what I got with old BIOS.... tested with new BIOS but had installed top fan grille / filter which I found was stealing 4.4C from me.

I dont feel confident that you understand what i am looking for.

I am looking for a PCB/hub as you call it.

Where i plug a molex into, then plug all my fans, and then plug a cable running from my Aquaero LT5 into the hub. so that the settings given from the Aquaero, will be what the fans do, yet, its not the aquaero powering all the fans.

This is as close as i can get, yet the GT AP15s arnt PWM, and the aquaero doesnt use PWM on all channels, only one.
