Corsair AF fan maybe? I hear they move good airflow.

Looks great Sedici, I'm personally more of a McLaren fan boy but love the Lotus theme. My build unconsciously turn out McLaren colours with silver and a bit of black and red smile.gif

I have the EK ball valve in a similar position, and see that you have cut one side of the lever (presumably so the side panel can be closed?). I was going to need to do that too, till someone on another forum told me that I can unscrew the lever and rotate it 90 degrees. So visually open position is actually closed, and via versa.

Thanks. I love McLaren as well, but the JPS black & gold was too good to pass. Maybe McLaren-Marlboro sometime in the future. biggrin.gif

For the lever. You noticed huh, bah. laughingsmiley.gif I actually did cut half of the lever! It was a mistake early on because in that photo, the valve is closed. But when draining, It would turn clockwise. The other side of the lever of course will hit the case frame, so the valve won't open complete. So I cut off one side to allow full movement.

I ended up buying EK rotary fittings however (there are three on that lower left assembly), so now the section under the T-splitter rotates outward and away from the case. So the cut lever is a waste.

I am fairly disappointed with temps at the moment. Currently stress testing everything and I almost want to just get rid of all the WC and put in an air cooler if temps are going to be high anyway.

Classic red/white McLaren-Marlboro theme will be awesome, but I just quit smoking, will be very hard to resist staring at the Marlboro logo.

That rotatable drain valve section is an incredible idea! Might just rip that off you!

Yeah, temps are not great in these cases, and I even have a 360 rad. I have to run with the glass off durring the hot summer (ralative) here in the UK.

The rotary really makes it easier to attach a drain hose to it, so definitely do it, the fittings are quite cheap.

My CPU is hitting 88C max at full load, a bit unnerving to be honest. What's everyone elses temps? I was expecting mediocre temps, but that's quite higher than I'm used to. Especially considering it's a CPU only loop.

I am beginning to wonder if it has to do with my front panel being completely shut. Since the default front has a big air cutout. Mine has only a slit, even then the slit is filtered to only feed to the PSU. So my only air intake is coming from the rear.

In my case, I have fresh air blowing through the radiator, so CPU/GPU temps are not too bad with my pretty aggressive overclock. 80 hottest core, 400rpm fans. With max speed fans I get 70 hottest core.

But I do heat up the case with hot air, hence with the glass off there is a difference of ~20 degrees. I'll need to fabricate some sort of fan extract.

Which fans are you using? Has anyone tried flipping the top fans as intake on the PC-O series?

Maybe I did not explain it properly, I am using the top 3 as intake, smile.gif, I'm gonna flip them to extract over the week end to see the difference.

I'm using standard Noctua NF-F12 1500rpm. I read they are not that good for pulling air through radiator but will give it a try.
