Time for Final clearance checks and configuration of the case. First, install PSU Cover after a few days of drying:
Then test mount the top rad with fans in push:
Hang it and a gaze at it's beauty:
Then drop in front rad for clearance check:
I'm still working on dual 360's that will work with push as this had the best airflow, regardless of fan. If I can't mount and route tubing, I will have to go with my initial configuration of push exhaust on both. That's why we double check before final assembly! Tubing is going to be a pain in the A$$.....
edit: While I was playing with the fans and mounting configurations, I decided to power both sets on each rad to see how they pushed air in the case. I'm saddened by the results as the NB e-loops "load" down in higher static pressure configurations. You can hear them slow down a good bit, I even had my wife come up and listen and she agreed. Additionally, the GT 14's pushed more air in pull or push. I even pulled the rads back out of the case to make sure it wasn't the top and front panels that were causing the problem. Same results but not as sever as when they were mounted in the case with the covers on. I just love the NB e-loops and how they look. The Corsair AP's pushed the most air, but they are by far the loudest...lots of motor noise...too bad also as I think they are really nice fans.
Looks like I'll have some new fans for sale.Edited by Tweakin - 4/18/14 at 7:22pm
