Regarding the res bracket in the middle, assuming my gfx cards dont go beyond my mb (sabertooth z77) how much vertical space would i have left after installing a 480 monsta, a 480 xt45 and three sets of 25mm thick fans? Toying with the idea of a thin 360 rad in the middle after seeing linus(techtips) installing a rad right there in a 900d
Just add them to the thread .... I'll likely provide dimensions in both inches and mm .... thx for getting it started.
It's late, let's hope my math still works at this hour
Monsta (86mm) + XT45 (45mm) + 3 x 25 fans = 206 .... not Push / Pull on both ?
From top, total height from bottom of 25mm high top compartment is 275mm (bottom of 5.25 bays) + 141mm (bottom of upper 3.5" bays) + 122mm (top of relocated pump skid) + 38 (to floor) = 576
So 576 - 206 = 370 ... so no 360 rad .... which are typically about 400m long
BTW, redid the measurements to use bottom of consistently for space from the floor as if ya took something out. Will re upload the file in a few.

A lot of boards the chassis fan ports in particular are not PWM. You should be able to see in the manual or in the bios which fan ports are PWM controlled or not. That, or you can just try the other port(s) to see if there's a difference.
Also, make sure you only have one 3 pin fan plugged into the first fan port on the phanteks hub. You can put a splitter on the others, but not the first one.
Yes, was told by Asus that three Chassis fans have no PWM control even tho they 4-pin .... however was also told that the three OPT fans have no control to which I answered....well then why would anyone ever buy the optional temp probes ? No answer as yet.

That's what I did (Post # 919)

Still trying to decide on the res and pump I will use. I will most likely just buy a Lamptron for fan control. I'd like to be able to control the rad fans via PWM, but it seems like the best rad fans are not PWM and it seems that the one PWM controller in the case will not be able to run a slew of fans.
Ditto on the XT45 for the same reasons.
For pump I went with the 35x2 ....I may wanna up the flow a bit and do parallel routing of the GPUs... was bored today having issues with loading Win 7-64 under UEFI....so in my idle time, toyed with some ideas
As for res, I'm stuck .... tough to do with dimension so close to the fit / no fit line. I'm currently leaning towards an EK150/250 .... wish I could fit one of the glass ones.... leery or Acrylic threads.
I finally decided to use the Phanteks fans via the hub..... got an e-mail back from Noiseblocker .... they will have 140mm eLoop fans coming out ... won't give any timeline though.....The Phantels XP PWM have higher SP at 1.53 .... review link posted few pages back.
Ordered 3 with LED's for push on top and 2 w/o LED's for bottom push .... gonna hold off on the pulls (till next credit card cycle)
The only PITA is ya can only use 1 fan on channel 1 ..... so with 4 fans on bottom rad (Channel 2 and 3) and 6 fans on top rad (Channels 4 thru 6) .... so what do ya put on channel 1 ? That's why need additional controllers if not augmenting in some way. Think I'll call Phanteks and say I wanna ship case back and get the correct one as per the manual with TWO fan controlelr s:)
Channel 1 - Bottom Rad Push Fan
Channel 2 - Bottom Rad Push Fan
Channel 3 - (2) Bottom Rad Pull Fans
Channel 4 - (2) Top Rad 1st Push / Pull Set
Channel 5 - (2) Top Rad 1st Push / Pull Set
Channel 6 - (2) Top Rad 1st Push / Pull Set
Total 10 fans
Of course could just ise MoBos three headers / sensors for the 2nd
OPT_1 - Case Fans (3)
OPT_2 - Pump Heat Sink Fan
OPT_3 - I may wanna add a "Spot Cool" or somethingSide Notes:
-Enthoo still in stock @ newegg
-140mm fans not in stock.... needed 2 (had 1)Edited by JackNaylorPE - 10/27/13 at 7:20pm
