I didn't have any room for it to slide over and cover the cables, and my PSU was pulling air in from the bottom so the cover wasn't obstructing any airflow to the PSU. So I slid it over the top to keep the solid black theme going wink.gif

Looks like we both are getting into something completely new!

Iv'e only ever used two rads in a build before, but I REALLY wanna squeeze this 360 in the front. So, that combined with the dual PSU = PAIN IN THE ARSE.

The Ex coolstream 480's shrouds are MONSTROUS, the nipples on the end are just so big. i mean, geeeesh. Too bad every radiator known to man was sold out besides these when I placed the order.

None of them have what I would consider particularly good build quality or finish.

I have multiple HW Labs rads, and for quality and finish, they are top shelf.

One of the issues with the HWL rads is that they are a bit wider because of the shape of the sides than the Alphacool rads, which depending on the space available, could be an issue.

The monsta really needs P-P fans to make use of its extra thickness.

If space is a concern, the HWL would be a lot better if there's only room for 1 set of fans.


Overall, I'd probably keep the SR 1's, as they are a lot more flexible to work with.

You win, I'll keep them.

The 2 pack sp120 are actually cheaper than 2 GT's. I might just pick up the sp120 QE, the red ring should match with the other red accents in my build. Or maybe I'll just go pure black and white and use the white ring.

good luck getting a 360 in the front of a 900D if youre using a thicker than 30mm 480 in the bottom frown.gif one of the major flaws of the 900D right there.

Im working on a removable motherboard tray mod for the 900D, might try to find a way to get a 480 up front too, its probably been done before and i just havent looked hard enough lol.

I have 21 corsair sp120 high performance fans in my rig. Great fans! On all my rads! Have 2 fan controllers running them. They can be turned down to quiet operation level. But its nice to be able to crank them all up when i want.

I understand:) Yeah that's all the quiet edition are. Less voltage running through. Less rpms.

I would not worry about this that much unless you plan to sun bath with your computer. With all the additives in coolant or you can add them yourself. You will be fine. If you really do not want anything in your loop for sure. Slap a uv light in there with some clear tubing and blocks. There using this to stop algae and microorganisms in swimming pools these days. The water runs under uv lights. Kills everything and i mean everything! Even the chlorine!

Should be fine, I have a 60mm thick down there... I may have to use 1/4 inch spacers, but it should work. Just no fans on the bottom 120. Will likely have to route from the top of the rad though.

We have been using uv units for aquariums for a long time.
