@FLuffykilled Guess I could be "guy" wink.gif
I connected the pump to the Predator hub, which is connected to the CPU_OPT. The fans on the Predator 360 are in total 6 and connected to another fan hub which is connected to the CPU_FAN header.
Both are set to PWM, but can not be controlled independently in the BIOS. Solution is/was the tool SpeedFan. Here I can control both headers independently.
Pump speed is on it's own "curve" and starts very slow to be as quiet/quieter than the fans. Only with the fans ramping up a bit the pump does it as well. Can post screenshots later today.

Mine will be very similar to this, except I may go to Z170. Can you share your fans config? I assume that you tried to get a positive pressure? Also, can you share more info about noise levels?

Ok so so this morning, i turned the comp on and temps were in between 28 degrees c and low thirties at idle 31 degrees c so im really happy about that. I guess it took the TIM time to cure.

And dschijn thanks. That setup works well, ill get speedfan conteol aswell, that may help further.

Thanks bro.

Ek predator in push pull, with ml 120 pro's pushing and ml120 pro led's pulling in.

Top two fans also pulling in air

Rear exhaust ml140 pro led pushing out the hot air.

Obviously positive pressure to ensure air coming in is filtered. My gpu also remains super cool like this, at around 45-50 degrees c when gaming.

Altogether 7 fans on the case, one built onto thenpower supply, and three on the 980ti lightning. Config is surprisingly surprisingly quiet. Very very happy with it.

Yup, made from aluminium. Keeps that card dead straight and good for strength.

Im really oc, i can stand the card drooping due to its size and weight.

Mnpctech is the place.

Great news! Thanks! smile.gif

Now I'm even more excited about my new build lol

To be honest I'm a bit reserved about those new Corsair fans, I think that those Phanteks ones that come with the case are great but maybe some Be Quiet ones would be even better... My main concern was GPU temps when running front mounted rad of any 240mm/280mm AIO/CLC but I guess that's gone now smile.gif

Also, it would be a real shame if dust would accumulate inside the case with that gorgeous tempered glass...

Put a Predator 240 in a Fractal Define Nano S. Front mount, flipped the fans for intake. Other components are 6700K at 4.8 GHz, 32 GB LPX Black at 2,666 MHz, EVGA 980 Ti SC+ ACX2.0+ at 1530 MHz/2000 MHz and a G2 650. I have ordered a full-size dark-tinted tempered glass panel for the side instead of the dinky window panel, I will mask off about 1 cm around all edges and paint/lacquer the inner side black then put magnetic tape behind it and it'll snap on just like that.



I really dig the industrial sleek look, just trying to decide whether it's worth it to pop a 1080 in there or hold out for a potential 1080 Ti or whatever's next!

Amazing build mate! smile.gif

I am getting a Nano S and Predator 240 as well to cool my mITX sistem (6700k, Z170i pro gaming, GTX 970 SSC) so may I ask you what your temps are like?

At what rpm do your fans spin when gaming? Is the gpu suffering from hotter intake air?

Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance!
