Noctua U9s - 125mm tall, 92mm fan, 5x6mm heat pipes, 524g
Cryorig M9i - 125mm tall, 92mm fan, 3x6mm heat pipes, 425g
Thermaltake Frio Silent 12 - 140mm tall, 120mm fan, 3x8mm heat pipes, 530g
Artic Freezer Xtreme - 140mm tall, 120mm fan, 4x6mm heat pipes, 608g
Agree with you here, suppliers just need to give us better options in the 140mm tall range with the trend to smaller cases.

Dang wish I saw your post regarding the mach 90 sooner haha that thing looks cool and Im sure it cools well too.

I ended up getting the Noctua U9S since OC3D recently reviewed it with a 6700k and it did much better than I thought, It surprisingly beat the D9L but even the U12S. I ordered up two of the PWM 92mm redux fans as well for P/P for hopefully low rpm cooling performance.

I did see newegg had this thing:
Phononic HEX 2.0

Tweak town review (not bad for size)
http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/7772/phononic-hex-2-thermoelectric-cpu-cooler-review/index8.html

I was entertaining the purchase but since Im on the SF600 I didnt want to worry about any cable harness issues since I may go with custom cables and I didnt want to mix n match harnesses.

I could live with the less finished look if it allowed me to run deeper fans with the Predator! Thanks.
These are the ones I used Noctua NA-SAV2 chromax.white

Thanks!
Here you go he did a couple tests in different configs for the Dark Rock TF: http://www.overclock.net/t/1594644/something-small-and-wicked-this-way-comes/1150#post_25197844

Configuring the lower portion configured ssd and hd in one. The lower 60mm exhaust will get a OC cool 60mm baby rad as well as the top 240. Trying to figure out mounting my aquaero 6. I'd like to use the black faceplate so my only option would
Be to cut a 5.25 square cut out. Or find a way to get ride of the 5.25 brackets which give you about 1/8" gap to somehow use face of bullet to mount... Need to do some searching for ways people mounted the A6 on a solid surface that was modded . Mounted the d5 as well

Corsair sfX psu 600w more fans, my aquaero 6 and some fans are on the the way.

I can't say what is better but my temps are really great with just the lower fan reversed and two top fans exhausting, i've delidded my cpu also.

Great concept and I love the looks and idea of the case. It's just a tad to small for many options on cooling and gpu's.

Thanks for the reply! I get temps of around 58C after 1 hour AIDA64 stress test with the Dark Rock TF in its standard 2 fan configuration with downdraft orientation. This is with a delidded 6700K at stock clock speeds. Do you get better temps than that with the 1 fan reversed and 2 fan exhaust configuration?
