Ya, very expensive. Hopefully I can sell them fast though. Spent just about as much with the noctua fans i bought.

I tried the fan controller and it was better, but not where I want it to be. I literally sit so close to my computer it's not even funny. Not much room in my room (pun intended). thumb.gif Hopefully this 550d will make me happy.

Sold the h80i and picked up a Noctua NH-D14. That way I can remove the rear exhaust fan and have the cpu cooler just exhaust straight out the back with 1 less fan for reduced noise. That was my first time using a h80i for any build and I was not a fan of the acoustics when I put push/pull. I did buy all pwm fans though, and swapped out the acx for the titan cooler since airflow won't be as high. Was able to get a trade on that one so no $ spent.
