I wish, I don't have the extra funds to do a custom loop right now.

I'm planning to pair the 140mm version with the AXP-200 and see how that performs.
Comes down to the quality of the fans. I've never tried water cooling but I don't see how that's necessarily quieter when there's pump noise to contend with too.

On the AXP-100 Muscle, I can only get the 92 or 100 mm fan that it comes with on it. Unlike the AXP-100, mine didn't come with a 120mm fan bracket. From things we have read and what some guys posted here, that 120mm fan on the AXP-100 doesn't help at all but restricts air flow.

My H60 has no issues with pump noise, but have heard some say they have had issues with pump noise.

The other issue, I want to keep the fan on the side panel for the positive air flow.

So could a 150mm PSU fit in this case??

I posted a few pics on the first few pages of a guy getting a ATX PSU in the case. I can't recall what size it was either.

He used a SUPER FLOWER GOLDER SILENT FANLESS PSU (ATX SIZE) 170mm x 150mm x 86mm

I might also give the Node 304 a shot to see how noise and temps are with that case too, but that one will have water cooling. I got so used to the silence of water cooling over the last 2 years I already miss it.
Don't loose hope, it will shut up tongue.gif

Man that is disappointing to say the least. Exactly what I've been afraid of. I'm wanting to use my build for daily work right beside my desk. So idle/browsing noise is of real concern to me as I'm spoiled with a silent MacBook Air.

I'm thinking of trying: NH-L12 (bottom fan), 1x Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 (Side Panel), 2x Noctua NF-S12A (GPU area). All on PWM with silent/low setting.

I hate pwm fans just because I can't stand them ramping up and down. I'd rather just find quiet fans at fixed speed and go that route personally. Hearing air move doesn't bother me, mechanical/turbulent fan noise does though, so I tend to run GT AP-14's or the Air Penetrators from Silverstone. Even at the full 12v, the fans themselves are silent.

I'm waiting for the PWM fans and the adapter to arrive. You have to connect them to the GPU itself as far as I know.
So is speedfan or software out of the question? I have my two gpu fans connected to a second splitter like the one that came with the case since my motherboard only has two 4 pin fan spots. Fan Xpert in AI Suite controls them how it's supposed to but it's based off of cpu temps instead of gpu.

I ran my jetflo's at high speed during heaven and it dropped core temp by 6 and vrm by 8 degrees so having it ramp up with gpu temps would be really useful.

I'm joining late but when I set my jetflo's to silent mode on Fan Xpert in Asus AI Suite they're really really quiet, I'm guessing you could try something like this?

I guess it is, it will only send the PWM signals based on CPU temperature, not GPU. If there is a way to do it from the board, I don't know it. Maybe try to confirm it with another owner of the board, here in the forums there could be a thread of the board itself.

I haven't checked if the splitter that came with the case is PWM; I discarded the option since the fans themselves are not. But I'll check out the splitter when I get home.
