Do you use the filters? Do they substantially reduce the cooling performance? Will high static pressure fans compensate for the reduction in intake airflow?

LOL! An apt description. I've decided to leave these out of the build. I was simply blowing at them and putting my hand behind and the amount of air that gets through is pitiful. I would rather have to do dust maintenance more often than starve my fans the air the need.

I even stuck my head in my case to listen (you should have seen my girlfirend:p )
Maybe i will build the psu out of the case and then listen specific to the PSU.

I already planned to replace the cpu fan, dunno with which cpu cooler yet. ( seen the Prolimatech Samuel 17, Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B, Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet, Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle and a few others )

Depends on what you see as "best" : Most Silent, Best Cooling performance, Best Price, Water or Air Cooling, What price range smile.gif Overclocking or no overclocking ?

Makes answering for everyone a lot easier biggrin.gif

best cooling not water cooling air price doesnt matter no overcloking

What about answering them all? biggrin.gif That way, anyone who is thinking of getting a cpu would have some ideas?

How about this for simplicity:
A) OC* chip - e.g. i5-4670k*
B) non-k chip i5-4670 - therefore, overclocking not too relevant.

A) for silence - choices are?
for best cooling - air -?
for best cooling - liquid? -

B) ditto although probably don't need more expensive or high-level coolers
Some low-profile air coolers might be sufficient?

Thats why i came with the idea of making a list of what kinda setup everyone has, it's on the front page : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZkvyW2lTZ2c90tzw_jH4ieyLfq6iyhQzNrgI2CwNEcs/edit#gid=0

I still don't know which cpu cooler i want smile.gif

The hoses apparently wrinkle and I think that is the main issue with the case - at least, it is for me. Also, it doesn't sound as portable as I thought. Although, there is still a lot to like about it.

The radiator and fan are inside the case. I had trouble trying to install it at first because it kept hitting the mobo riser but once I changed the orientation to what you see in the picture, it fit perfectly. In fact when I close the case, I don't have to apply pressure to lock it into place. It just slides right in.

No kinks to the tubes and the only thing it touches is the RAM. In fact the tubing actually sits on top of it. So I highly recommend low profile RAM sticks because anything taller than what I have may end up squeezing the tubes in between the fan and the RAM.

The case is quite portable actually. Very small and slim just like a console. Just a couple inches bigger in height and length.

Yeah, if you have time also try some process of elimination on your components too that might help you find out what is making all that noise.
