All three of those are wrong. He got the FQ121 it's a brand new fan. I was the first retailer to acquire them from the good folks at Silverstone, since I drove to their warehouse facility in Chino, California to get them.

Here is the link to them http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?scase=c_120&pid=459&area=en

If you would like more info, PM me.

I wanted something different and the specs looked perfect for my needs.

I'm thinking of trying a AQ Poweradjust 2 to slow my pump down. Also I can monitor my coolant temps since both my XSPC displays died within a month.

Thanks stick!

I've found a 380i and RX360 for a very reasonable price so that is the decided next move.

I got some parts in recently! An Aqua Computer Poweradjust2 for my MCP355 pump, CPU block (380i) and a XSPC RX360. I also sleeved a few more cables.








Not my final configuration or anything like that. Still a ways to go! But so far the performance is great and the noise is much less than my old build. So things are moving in the right direction! thumb.gif

Lookin gooood, that RX360 is a natural fit wink.gif and the block matches your fittings nicely.

Yeah I'm really happy with it. I thought I would want push/pull but so far just push around 1400RPM with these Silverstones is easily capable. I can turn it down some but I can hardly hear them and I like to see my water temp nice and low biggrin.gif
