I can't wait for Phanteks to offer the accessories so I guess I have to take the control of the fans into my own hands.
Is there a chance I can run the 14 fans off the one PWM board?
I'm sitting in the dining room (DR table is my "workbench" .... plan is if I take long enuff to finish my build, the in-laws can't come over for dinner ). The fans are less than 12" from my head and I can't hear a thing..... I hear the heat coming outta the vents, I hear the fridge in the kitchen, I hear bubbles in the fish tank in the next room .... but no fan noise at 1179 rpm on the stock intel cooler and 742 on the Phanteks. I have to get ear within 6" to hear them. Switching to Turbo Mode ... the speed ups to 780 I was able to get it to 1259 rpm and I could hear fan noise .... but my eyes were focused on the 89C CPU temp under IDA 64 and I didnt wanna get away from the scree
Again I could hear the noise but it was in no way annoying. I should have a Rad report later today ... 45mm and 60mms arriving whenever UPS man gets here.
maybe I'll stack em ....
But by tomorrow Jesse would have stacked two Monstas together UPDATE:
Here's some pics of the AlphaCoool UT60-280 in the top of the Enthoo. Rad makes it but the pull fans look like they won't....the Xt45 fits better
Have the XT45-420 in and running a credit card along it I'd say I clear the M6F HS by about 6 mm .... add 2 mm for the fans being less wide than the rad and Id have 8mm clearance if I used a UT60 ..... however, getting the XT45 in was a tilt and twist exercise..... it does not fit in thru the front 5,25 bays because of the lip that they out on the sides to support whatever ya put in there. Ya would have to bend or trim them with a UT60-420 to get it in.Edited by JackNaylorPE - 10/30/13 at 2:50pm
