Oh DAYUUM. I wonder how soon. I still haven't ordered the Noiseblockers for my Caselabs S5 build.

I would love to know too, but I don't think he has them in pull. Unless you're assuming he has some in the top where we can't see?

BTW Jacek, having the fans exhaust out the bottom is going to be very restricted without a pedestal or something raising the case up a bit. The only place for the air to exhaust is straight down and since the case is barely raised at all by the rubber feet, it almost completely restricted. Just mentioning since a lot of people don't realize the little vents on the sides at the bottom (the ones one the two bottom dust filters that pop out) are pretty much just for looks since when you push them into place they are completely blocked off by some plastic that they mount up against. If I were keeping my Enthoo I might look into drilling out vent holes in that plastic so at least some air could be pulled in through the sides (or out, in the case of an exhaust setup).

You're right. They are in push at the bottom. I didn't look closely enough at the photo. I guess I'm trying to find a reason to buy those fans. They're incredibly good looking. I feel like Spongbob in this video:

Hahaha I know exactly what you mean. I just built my Enthoo Primo a few months ago and I've already ordered a new Caselabs case and a mATX motherboard and a bunch of other stuff to rebuild it into a smaller form factor PC, which I really did not need. I even have a 3 month old Alphacool 280 and 420 radiator pair that I won't be using in the new build. I can see a lot of that stuff but still... such a waste and I didn't need to go ahead with it.

The Noiseblocker eLoops are definitely a beautiful fan. They do have that issue with being in pull, though. I have heard that it's only because the fan itself touches the rad slightly in pull and that's what the noise is, so some have suggested that you could just get a radiator gasket to space it just enough to get rid of the noise, but I haven't heard of anyone doing that to see if it works. Others have said it is because of turbulence or some bologna.

There's also the Noiseblocker M12's which look great as well (though they wouldn't match my white build as nicely). They're supposed to be slightly quieter and better for lower speed use on radiators. I think the transparent black blades look awesome and the vibration resistance would be awesome since the corners are actually big inserts that are entirely made of rubber. I've thought of removing the black rubber corners and the trans black blades and painting the plastic frame white to match my white build. I think that could look amazing.

Hi,
Does a EVGA GTX 780Ti Classified card fit with both of the reservoir mounts being used? The card will be watercooled.

This is a really long post. Sorry rolleyes.gif

Okay.. So I just found this and went completely nergasm.. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22074/ex-rad-661/Alphacool_NexXxoS_UT60_Full_Copper_Triple_140mm_Radiator_-_Special_Edition_White.html?tl=g30c95s931#blank
My plan is to get the white version of the Primo (if it will hurry up and be released!!) and use white Primo Chill tubing, and use the Asus Maximus Formula for the cool looking armor and the red for accents. While looking at radiators (I am still trying to decide on what thickness and number of fans to use), I found that white edition of the alphacool. Although I really like the way it looks, I feel like doing two of those AND white tubing AND a white Primo would be overkill on white. LOL. tonguesmiley.gif What do you guys think? I think even white case and tubing, with regular black radiators and the stock fans included with the Primo would look sick.
If the white editon of the Primo doesn't come out soon, like by beginning of next month, then I may cave and get the black version (although I love the looks of the white case, especially with the white LED's). If I got the black version I would probably end up getting the white radiators though. tonguesmiley.gif
I have a few questions for you guys actually. First being, what's your preferred 780 water block? I like these two the best:
1. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22130/ex-blc-1581/EK_GeForce_780_GTX_Ti_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Nickel_Acetal_EK-FC780_GTX_Ti_-_AcetalNickel.html?tl=g30c311s1996#blank
2. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22286/ex-blc-1592/XSPC_Razor_GTX_Titan_780_780_Ti_Full_Coverage_VGA_Block_-_Reference_Design.html?tl=g30c311s1996#blank
The XSPC one would probably look really cool, showing off the case in the dark.
My second question is, what radiator sizes should I go with? I've asked something similar but I truly can't decide. I keep eyeing those white radiators, and it makes me think of doing one in the top and one in the bottom. Obviously in the top I will have to go thinner, especially if I want to consider push/pull. But in the bottom I am (from what I have been reading) able to mount a monsta in the bottom with push/pull if I desire. Although I imagine that would get in the way with 2 way SLI. I imagine it gets in the way of a small reservoir mounted at the rear of the case as well. Speaking of reservoirs, I can't really decide on that either. I really like the idea of bay reservoirs, but I've read filling and bleeding them are a pain. I found this little guy right here, and he looks pretty sick nasty: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/20658/ex-res-596/PrimoChill_120mm_CTR_Compression_Tube_Advanced_Reservoir_System_-_120mm_-_Frosted_CTR-ADV-12-F.html?tl=g30c97s165
If any of you can help me out here too. I am a bit clueless on reservoirs. Like, is there any specific brand that is really good, and a certain volume I need? I seen a 80mm res of the same look as the one I linked, but not knowing the use of sizes or anything, I don't know. I assume larger reservoirs are for looks and to make filling easier. Also, if I did get, say that 120mm res, would it fit either in the rear of the case or at the side beside the hard drive cage?
Anyway, would a white res, white tubing, white case and white radiators be too much (although I may do traditional black ones)?
This post got really long really fast. Sorry about that. Haha. Thanks for any and all help in advanced!
EDIT* Whoops! I just realized that the white radiator I listed is a UT60. I know it is possible to mount that in the top, but with push/pull it's a bit too large. Doesn't matter too much, as I can just do either push or pull. What do you guy's think would be best?
Oh, and is a 560 even possible? LOL. biggrin.gif
