Going from Air Cooling to a CLC due to space reasons

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
yesterday i have built my PC but I closed the side panel with 2 fans attached they touch the heatsink(NH D14) and It didnt close.. so i need to go with CLC 120 or 240mm I left my PC power on all the time during a month so I would need to replace some fans. here in venezuela goverment only lets buy to the citizens 300usd for internet purchases, someone borrowed me 140 this year, since I dont have dollars as you do(everytime,everywhere,) I need to select a choice between these three options

1. Sell my NH D14 and buy a Corsair h80i here (7500 bsf/625usd) or a Corsair H100i for (9000 bsf/750usd) or a Termaltake Water Performer 3.0(ther eis only 1) for (6600bsf/550usd), all these fit my case? which one is better than the NH D14 ?

2.buy something from Amazon (up to 100usd) that fits my case( NZXT Tempest 410), keep in mind that I would buy 80/50usd in fans instead buying ooption 2 if I buy the CLC here, shipping would take me a month or 2

3.Wait until 2015 and keep the nh d14 without side panel fans and buy a new CLC or aCurrent CLC at a bit lower price but still I could buy case fans

4.Change case to a antec gx700/antec 302/enermax coenus
Thanks

you may have to pull the wires from the connectors then put them back but that's pretty easy

Dont be ridiculous, if your gonna spend $625 on a corsair H80i you might aswell buy a full new watercooled case for that.

Are the aesthetics that bad that you cant just leave your side case off? Or cut a big hole in it?

Seems like so much money to waste to just have the luxury of closing your side window on your case.

is there any need to offend me for the current bad economy of the country?I am using my country currency and giving an estimate of the value in usd...this economy has fallen since chavez arrived to the presidency.but this sint the thread`s reason

On topic.it doesnt fit my case case having or not a cut side panel.the problem is the height of the heatsink and the place where is set.

I have thought this but the dust on the fans and the noise would be a big problem for me i think that the most logical choices are the ones listed on the OP to keep things simple and quiet (as possible that it could be)

Well external fans wont really make it louder and they will attract just as much dust as in your case. You could always make or buy dust covers for them.


I ran my fans outside for a long time and they were cleaner than the ones inside my case.

This is free and wont cost you a dime. Might as well not spend money if you dont have to.
