You might ask why 38 fans?

Also, since we haven't spent much time talking about my GPU cooler, can I assume that my selection is okay?

The EK GPU blocks are the best performers.
I recommend you get the backplate as well for additional passive cooling.
I also think the EK supremacy blocks are superior to Koolance's blocks.

OK great! I think this post got lost on the last page, do you have any thoughts on this?

By the way, thank you very much for all your input. +REP

I beleive the Lamptron has problems seeing the fan rpm signal when it goes under 1000 rpm. So that should happen with whatever fans you select.
It's not a big deal teally. You will find yourself dialing.your fans down until they are silent to you, regardless of their rpm numbers.

With my 38 fans, I find them completely silent below 800 rpm, near silent at 1000 rpm, and tolerable at 1200 rpn.
But this is subjective. Your mileage may vary.

okay, great. I'll probably draw up a diagram of my loop, and double check all the measurements to make sure things will fit in my case either tonight or tomorrow, and I'll post it here for some feedback. If everything looks okay to everyone then I'll probably start placing orders tomorrow. I'm still open to new recommendations though, so please don't hesitate if you have some!

I agree with the EK recommendation. Thats all I use for water blocks. Im very happy with both their products as well as their customer service

Here is why I recommend the Gentle Typhoon fans:

Martin's Rad airflow to Noise level chart

That chart shows each fan's rad airflow to noise level curve. The closer the fan's curve is to the bottom right corner of the chart the better its balance is of radiator performance vs noise. As you can see, the Gentle Typhoon lineup stands well apart from all the others, or, if you really don't mind louder, but with a similar performance curve, then there's the Delta VHEs, but other than that they're all just one big glob bunched together so you can't hardly tell one from another.

Here is how I imagine you will set your Lamptron automatic fan curve, assuming you get the AP-45 fans.

You select the lowest automatic temperature, which is 25° C.
Than you turn down your fans to the fastest comfortable speed. The fastest that you want your fans to run when your computer is no under load. For me, it's 900 rpm, or 35% speed.
Than, you select the maximum speed you want your fans to run when under load. That should be 100%, or 2150 rpm for your build.
The upper temperature limit is automatically selected for you, 10° C above your selected lower temperature.

So any time your coolant is at or below 25° C, your fans will be silent. But as you put your computer under load, and water warms up, the fan speed ramps up, until they reach max speed at 35° C.

And btw, the Lamptron doesn't come with a water temp probe. You'll need to buy that seperately.

Quick question, my pump has its own flow control on it 1-5, and I'm hooking it up to a controller. Do I just set the pump to "5" and then use the controller? Or should I be considering a different pump?
