Thanks for subbing. Yeah plan on taking a trip to Home Depot this weekend to pick up the flat head screws. Then try to mount the 240 again in the front. Will have new pics once I install it and see what it looks like.

So quick update to share with you all... I decided to go a different route for the fans. I wanted silence and yes the Noctua Industrials should provide great performance that is nice. I thought since this is a white theme build to go with something that will match and perform well. I ended up picking up 4 X NB-eLoop Fan B12-P Noiseblocker. Will have some updates and pics to share soon once they arrive which should be Friday.

If anyone has used these fans how is the static pressure on these? From what I have read and seen on youtube these things are crazy quiet.

Well let me know your thoughts talk to you all soon

I purchased the B12-P fans for testing as I am doing a white themed build too and they look really nice, when I placed them next to something restrictive e.g. a radiator (UT60) they emitted an annoying buzzing/humming sound that I simply could not ignore. I won't be using them but, as with all noise related stuff, it's subjective and you might find them tolerable.

Have you considered getting the white "chromax" pack for the Noctua fans ? it basically just changes the rubber insert colour, it's subtle but, I think it'd look OK and the Noctua fans are amazing in terms of noise and performance IMO.

Yeah I have used them before for a previous build... they did the trick. Will put up pics of both the NoiseBlocker and Noctua and tell me what you think looks better.

I feel it was purely aesthetics that led me to picking them up and also the reviews that I have heard... dam marketing lol biggrin.gif

The scuttlebutt that I had heard was that noiseblockers were ok in push, way noisy in pull.

I think for the most part I will be in a push config since my 240 rad will be in the front of the case and then were the radiator mount is for the top I will mount my 120 rad there. I think that should look good and work well together. I am considering mounting the reservoir ddc pump to the 240 or putting it under the motherboard tray in the bottom compartment as to make sure I am not running into space issues up top.

Any thoughts and suggestion please let me know it definitely helps and is much appreciated thumb.gif

So I was testing different size water tanks and looks like a 80 size water tank fits quiet nicely against this space. It actually seems like it was planned in such a quiet way most people won't even realize it lol... could it be

Thanks for letting me know that you still have them smile.gif I forgot to tell you iBruce...I am changing the feet. It will finally get some beautiful case feet by MNPCTECH. Its like its chromed out wheels for the Raptor tongue.gif I think that they will use the same threading as the normal feet that come with the BH7 and will work. Testing and if it does not fit I can always make the holes bigger to accommodate the new case feet.



What do you think?

Today was a very big day for me... I currently decided to test the components so far and make sure everything is working as it should. I also wanted to get the OS install and get all the latest drivers installed. I currently have it running on air cooling till before I begin my liquid cooling adventure in White Raptor. But knowing I crammed the 2 samsung evo's, 2 western digital VelociRaptor drives in the case and full length sleeved cables, and lastly a NZXT Hue + and was able to get it to boot and have the lower compartment fans running and close it with out applying any force to the case. It makes me happy to know that this is one beast of a case.

Here are a few pics of what it currently looks like on air. Tell me what you all think of how it looks so far thumb.gifbiggrin.gif
