Corsair Obsidian 250D Club - Page 24

post #231 of 3052
I'd have to say the loudest fan in my case was the stock GPU fan. Pretty much dead quiet since I added the water cooler for that. And if you spring for the Corsair AX series PSU you won't have any fan noise issues from it all. I'm pretty sure the fan on my AX860i has only ever turned on during heavy bench marking. Those things are insanely efficient. The rest of my fans are SP120 high performance PWM (4), an AF140 with a 7 volt adapter, and two GELID 80mm PWM. The PWM fans never get above about 100 rpm. When you first turn the computer on they all start at full speed and it's quite loud but then they all drop down to silence.

I have them and have limited them to 1300rpm. Idling about 800-900rpm which is pretty quiet and still keep temps down.

Nice builds coming along everyone, keep em coming thumb.gif

Has anyone put a 200mm in the front yet? I am considering dropping a Cooler Master 200mm in mine. The stock 140L doesn't flow much, even wide open, but the CM 200mm flows over 100cfm and turned down a touch to keep it quiet would still flow more. I am also thinking that the larger spread of the fan would hit the upper portion of the case better.
It's so little!

Hi guys, long time stalker first time poster.

Doing my first water cooled PC doing acrylic tube, got the CPU all setup but still waiting on my GPU and block to arrive in the next few days.

Thought I would share pics of build so far and ill try keep updating as I go.

I have dropped in a Bitfenix Spectre pro 200mm fan yesterday , minor installation issues because of the weird fan build , but it fits , i'll post pictures later , just got my Maximus and 4770k today
custom WC build is being delayed because im still waiting on some fittings to arrive , but i'll drop my trusty H100 and start working on it today

What 240 radiator are you using? Because after doing some measurements the only smallest size after market radiator they sell are 30mm with a 120x25mm fan it will not fit by my calculations. I noticed the Corsair 100i is a 27mm radiator so a normal size fan of 120x25mm will fit.

So for me I bought the Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 which is 30mm thick along with the Yate Loon Fan 120x120x20mm thick. It seems we only have a clearance of 2" at that area..

I also noticed if we put a 240 rad in you can not use the 2 x 80mm fan exit area because it will hit the rad/fan. I decided to wait for the powder coated for this case tell I get my $500 worth of PerformancePcs products in by the 15th to get a more accurate measurements.

You can use a regular 30mm radiator coupled with coolermaster' xtraflo slim fans which are good , i opted for phobya's g-silent slim should be here any day now , so i'll have them hooked up in a couple of days , there are also slim fans from scythe and gelid which are nice but the phobya and CM will be my choice because of the higher CFM .

Yeah I'm using Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 240mm and Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition PWM

It does fit, its VERY tight and takes away the ability to cable manage down that way, due to my MSI Z87I Mini ITX Motherboard and the 24pin placement and the sata placement

It was going to leave those cables out in view or going all over the place, so I moved the mounting for the Rad up to the top of the bracket and towards the front a bit also. doing so let me run the cables under it a bit more tidy and gave me more space to run tube so I could now fit 80 fans at the back if I wanted, although I don't think I will at this point.

But I change my mind a lot so by the time I get my GPU in and done its all bound to change a lot more.

I was leaving the 5 1/4 bracket in to make it more rigid and for the Res but I'm thinking I might cut it short or remove it or make a custom bracket still haven't decided yet.
