I would like some feedback please. I am purchasing a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe and using an air cooling solution. The motherboard I am installing is a GIGABYTE GA-X99-SLI with dual EVGA GeForce GTX 960’s, an Intel Core i7-5930K, 64GB CORSAIR Vengeance 288-Pin DDR4 2133 powered by a fully modular EVGA 220-P2-1200-X1 80. The CPU cooler is a Noctua NH-D14. I will replace the CPU cooler fans with three be quiet! SILENT WINGS 2 120mm max.1500RPM 50.5CFM 15.7dB(A) Cooling Fans. These fans will be routed to the PWM hub and the hub will be wired to the CPU header as it is the only true PWM header on the motherboard the rest are voltage controlled. I would like to run, 2x 140mm front, 3x 140mm top, 1x 140mm bottom and 2x 120mm HDD cage fans as intake and 1x140mm rear fan as exhaust (using be quiet! SILENT WINGS 2 PWM 140mm max.1000RPM 60.4CFM 16.4dB(A) pin Cooling Fans. I like these fans because of the fluid dynamic bearing construction). Are there suggestions as to whether the fans (other than the CPU fans) should be: 1) routed through the PWM hub controlled by the CPU header, 2) routed through a second PWM hub that would be controlled by a voltage controlled motherboard header, or 3) a 5.25” bay fan controller?. Also, are there opinions or suggestions as to the proposed fan layout? Thank you all.
