It is a HAF X case also known as ugly as sin.

Either way, the max I saw on real bench was 64-65 on all cores except core 2 which ran at 71 C. Compared to Corsair H110i GT, this is an improvement of about 5C-8C. Corsair used to see about high 60s low 70s on all cores whereas on core 2 it would hit 79 C.

Second point about noise is after fixing my issue my computer is more silent than it was with Corsair. I absolutely love that.

Third point is about expandablity of the unit. As you can see I need a water block for my second classified. I will be ordering the QDC filled block as soon as it becomes available. It is sort of a mix and match but for a guy who has never done water cooling custom loop, I am fine with my ghetto setup. This Predator is a fantastic unit and saves a bunch of cash in the process.

I'm very glad you got the issue solved and that the overall performance and quietness of the unit is holding up to your standards and expectations wink.gif

QDC blocks should become available in about three weeks, exact date will be published soon.

P.S.: HAF X is a great chassis. Most of the builds I do for my colleagues is based on HAF 932 Advanced II. Very spacious, tough and sturdy, although not really pretty. biggrin.gif

Best Regards,

You EK guys shoukd look into using any other company besides DHL for delivery, at least to Canada anyway. Was really looking forward to this weekend.

The Canadian business has over 38 reviews on google and they all say the same thing: drivers do not even attempt delivery. All one star reviews.

Maybe its just me but I don't think a premium company like EKWB should be using such a terrible shipping company.

@dayman: Thanks for the heads up. Being from half way around the globe here DHL is considered as a very fast and reliable courier. Our guys will have a look at this for sure! thumb.gif

Thanks for the prompt response. Like I said before, I don't hold it against you guys, your customer engagement is second to no other company. You can be sure I will be using your products when I make the leap to a custom water cooled loop.

Thanks again for your help. I am super happy with the product now. I have fans running at 1600 RPMs and that is the fine balance between noise and temperatures. During gaming my temperatures are in late 40s and low 50s. What this has done for my second classified is that it now runs at 73-75 C instead of 78-81 C. I can't wait for the prefilled QDC ready Classified 980 Ti block. Then I will finally have my build complete for at least a year (or I keep telling myself lol).

I give Predator 360 a 10/10 rating.
post #1438 of 7089
Can anyone show the max rpm of the pump or is that difficult since the pump is tied to the fans pwm? Any reasoning why the pump is being held back at 6w? Unless its meant for heat & silence.
