I should have noted, Kraken fans are **** and you would want to replace them. This makes the Kraken a rather costly solution.

I see you have the fans mounted in a puller configuration. I am assuming this is due to a lack of length on your coolant hoses.

If you use a Kraken X61, there is enough length to get the fans positioned as pushers. Then, if you buy a 140mm to 120mm adapter and re move some material from the fan casing, you can mount 1 120mm puller on the bottom position in front of the GPUs.

While the extra airflow is nice for the GPUs, I have two exhaust fans and actually did this to assure good positive pressure on the air intake side. This helps assure all air is entering the system through the filter and prevents the accumulation of dust inside the case.

yer i hid the wiring as much as i could to give it the 'empty' look haha

i got enough length on hoses, i just came to this conclusion after watching a few linus vids(my only form of knowledge lol) as he said there's zero difference in push/pull configs, also since this pic i've switched to white ringed sp120 quiet edition fans on the rad too so looks bit nicer

also my h105 rad is 38mm thick and as u can imagine theres literally no room between the case and cable hider, the cable plate is actually hard up against the top fan holding it all pretty firm

i've had thoughts on doing it like your style too and will see...i def got plenty of spare corsair fans to play with haha

im also gonna be doing a 'summer version' mod to the front panel of case where im gonna mount 2 or 3 120mm fans after unscrewing the front white metal piece, it can get pretty hot here in melb in summer

as far as noise goes system is whisper quiet and temps are around 18-20deg idle and 46-48deg full load, which im happy with...but u mentioned dust...wouldnt the front dust panel catch most if not all the dust?

The front filter would yes. The radiator and filter choke down intake air a bit. If the exhaust fans are moving more air (they have no such restriction) they will pull unfiltered air in through other crevices such as the area around the expansion cards. This allows dust in. If there is slightly more air pressure created by intake rather than vacuum from output air, pressure inside is slightly positive and as a result, air only enters through a filtered source. I am super OCD and the dust bugs the **** out of me, so i put the additional 120 in to try to get more positive pressure. The more simple solution is to simply slow down exhaust fans a bit, but there is no time for rational solutions! Especially when I get more fan lighted fan porn. The other source of unfiltered air is on the bottom of the case, where the metal filter is total crap. I am looking for a replacement solution there.

If you want a 120 on an adapter, you will have to cut away one corner mounting point on the fan.

i get ya now smile.gif

if room persists i shall try ur method, cos i to am ocd as about dust lol, i was gonna try something about that bottom grill thing near rad...i got a 80mm arctic cool pwm fan im gonna mount in the hdd bay to pump air out too

all my fans are spinning at around 5-700rpm till about 40deg and all have their own cpu temp scaling to follow

so far dust has been non existent but im checking it every day, being such a white system i wanna keep it that way haha

also why do i need an adaptor? my rad takes 120s already and isnt the case got holes for both 120 and 140?
