The second one is about fans. I want to replace the stock ones for quieter and cooler ones. Are the Bequiet silent wing 2 the best for me ?
The third one is about the GPU, will my asus gtx 1070 will fit ?

Thx biggrin.gif

I'm only saying this, because I could not be more pleased with it, but a H100i V2 fits in nicely. I am sure you could fit the H105 in, but it would certainly be a squeeze. It would probably also mean that you'd have to install a 120 mm fan instead of the rear 140 mm, and I can't imagine you'd be able to setup a push/pull configuration, but there's no harm in trying.




I've gone for the Aerocool DS fans, purely because they're one of, if not, the quietest fans currently on the market.

As for the GPU, I've measured the length of the case from the GPU's PCB and it measures just over 10.5" (267 mm), so just make sure that the certain type of the GTX 1070 is close to that, because you're really going to struggle to get that in otherwise.

Hope this helps!

Thx for the reply. smile.gif
I was thinking about the kraken x61 for the AIO... xD
Actually, what I want is to OC my CPU at 4.5Ghz under 60 °C with silence.
And what about the performance with the aerocool ? Are they better than the Bequiet silent wing in term of perf ?

In that case, I would suggest the BeQuiet! Silent Wings, purely because they have a slightly better performance than the DS fans. For noise absorption, the DS fans are ideal, but if you're OCing and the airflow becomes more important, I suggest the BeQuiet! fans.

The Kraken would be a nice touch to have, considering it's NZXT, and the cooling performance would certainly be sufficient for overclocking. However, take note that because it's a 280 mm radiator, you will have to remove the two HDD trays at the top in order to fit this in.

Can I also replace the AIO stock fans by the Bequiet Silent Wing for better perf ? And Should I put the AIO in top of the case or in front of ? I mean what is the best choice ?

I have a 6600k @ 4.9ghz in my H440 V2 max temps of around 50-55'c in demanding applications/games. I'm using a cryorig A40 Ultimate AIO. I would recommend this AIO for its price for performance it vastly out performs any other AIO I've ever used.

And what about the pump noise ? I haven't heard about this AIO kit. :/

You should definitely have the AIO as a top exhaust for clearance and so the heat can be drawn from the front and up through the top, but honestly? It's a personal preference. See what your temps are like with either setup.

You can replace the stock fans with the Silent Wings. I don't think I've ever used stock fans for any of AIO coolers that I've owned.

Pump noise is next to nothing for me. When I took the pump off to re-position it, I heard more noise than I did before but it's gone back to normal now. Cryorig are one of the leading Air coolers in the market, they match coolers nice noctuah DH-15 and so on. And they're AIO kits have been around for about 6 months now. I was skeptical about getting one, but I'm glad I have. it's a 38.5mm thick rad, and 240mm long it just fits in my rig, but for £67 you won't find anything that performs the same as this in it's price range. even h105/110 corsairs get beaten by it. They also have 6 years warranty. And will pay for any costs caused by failure/leak from their unit. Unlike corsair who won't give you more than a set figure. So that gave me piece of mind. but a unit with 6 years warranty shows that they have a good level of quality in their units.

This is what it looks like in my rig smile.gif

So i decided to change my Flexible tubed Watercooling loop with Acrylic tubing, took me a while as i have been busy, but i borrowed a heat gun from a friend and started learning the art of tube bending. I used all EK fittings, except for the 90 degree, i had to use XSPC fittings.
I also managed to score myself a Phantom window side panel for my H630, it was free and had a couple of bent corners which i saved myself the hassle and got a panel beater to fix, it's not perfect, but it fits, the only thing i did with the side panel was silicon the acrylic window to the panel itself for a bit more sound deadening.

Front%20no%20window_zpsdpheqnxg.jpg

I used a drill bit to cut holes under the optical bay area for tubing to run through, i then used emery paper and black epoxy enamel to finish it off.

Res%20to%20CPU_zpsbkxnbxpo.jpg

Cable%20Management_zpspjdmi3j2.jpg

Last thing i did was to address the GPU sag with a small ghetto mod, the PCI-E slot take the most of the weight, so i used a straight SATA connector and a right angle SATA connector, cut the cables off the ends, grinded them down a bit then glued them together, the result is a GPU bracket which you can barely see plugged into a SATA port onto the motherboard, assisting with the GPU weight.
