That´s the arrangement I have right now. All rads as intake (top, front, bottom, side) and only the rear fan as exhaust. With this arrangement I notice a small pocket of hot air in front (bays) where both the 2 pumps and the fan controller sits. I solve the problem putting a 120 mm fan there as intake too on the drive bays. Pretty happy with temperatures. Is quite hot down here now and water temps were only 2-3 degrees above ambient temps and under stress (gaming) was like 7-8 degrees above ambient.

Ok maybe i will switch the fans around on that top rad and see what happens. That avatar of yours kills me everytime i see it biggrin.gif

biggrin.gif I found that funny too. That is a Czech beer (good one but not the best - I rather have the Czechvar = original Budvar). If you do switch the fan/rads try to keep track of temps. I would be interested to see how much difference would make as intake x exhaust.

As for pump speed, I much prefer speed control. Rather have two pumps running at half speed than one running at high speed.....I really don't hear the pump until it get a up at about 75%, so running 2 at 40% is better than one at 80%. Send temp sensors do show considerable differences in rad in / rad out temps. At 30C I'm about 1600 rpm ....at 40C, 2000 rpm.....at 50C, 2400 rpm, about 65C I hit 3200 rpm...at 70C I''m at 70% PWM but with the 35x2's wierd curve, that's 100% flow

If ya look at radiator performance one thing that is noiticeable today is that extra thickness doesn't really help. What that tells me is that the air is pretty much saturated with heat by the time it gets thru the rad. So ya profile looks like this

22C Ambient
____________
23
24
25
26
27
28
29
30
____________

And ya water temp is exiting the rad at 32C.....

So if the next rad is using theta exhaust air .... it's intake air temp is up near 30C make (maybe 27-28 with case ventilation) which is at best half the Delta T that the 1st rad had....the 2nd rad is therefore working at half the efficiency. Of course hi case ventilation cfm will help.

I like the size then again I've owned a Silverstone TJ-11 since they've come out so maybe my preference is skewed a bit towards large cases...

Plus the entire reason for that AIO was to get him started with water-cooling that he can expand with more rads/blocks/pumps/reservoirs later

I know this to be true, being in the auto industry for a good many years. That's why I went with 2-360x 30mm and a 240x30, more surface area vs thickness allows a greater volume of cooler air across the entire rad surface, basic latent heat transfer , the lower you can keep the exhaust temp the lower the operating temp.

Sorry to flood this glorious thread with questions - but has anyone replaced the LED lighting in the system yet? I want this case, but I need it in red - the fans don't matter - the LED does. I need to know how hard it is to replace.

I'd love to get a Case Labs, but I'm a broke peon, so this is the next best thing in my eyes.
