Looks good, must be uv lighting in there?, gives it a neat glow.
Some water for the card perhaps:p
I guess it's not necessary with that 560 as I hear the Twin Frozer II's have very good cooling.

yea the cooling on the Twin Frozr II design is amazing. I really didnt see a need for the card to be water cooled, in my eyes it was just more $$ lol

THREE 480's?
And on top of that, you're clocking yours higher than I do!

Some kind of summary/update on your two HAF X's would be fun to see, there is a lot going on with them. Which one has the 932 panel, one is being custom painted, etc.
You really need two sets of System Specs., to separate the two builds

Buying a door from another member would be good, but I really got a great deal from CM for mine at less than 20 bucks. Either way, it's good advise if anyone wants better airflow from the door panel.

I'm still using the R4's in my door, how are those Yate Loons? I am considering buying some good high speed fans for mine, I've lusted over these ones for ages:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=27971
Not only for the door, but the San Ace's are damn good fans for just about anything.
Damn expensive though, my wife isn't too amused by such purchases either
Then again, that's just for one system. I don't know how you can get away with two of them going

Back to reality, the R4's were on sale for about 7 bucks each when I bought a six-pack of them a few months ago. The San Ace's are more of a dream list item for now.

Combined with the other fans you've listed, there is some serious airflow going on in that HAF X. As for positive pressure, I've noticed that mine is actually getting a bit less dust buildup since I swapped out the solid window for the four-fan setup in the door, I guess due to the increase in positive pressure. I thought it would have more dust buildup.

But a good filter set would still reduce it to a minimum, that's also on the list for me.
Thank you for your kind words. I wouldn't have thought a year ago that I would have learned so much about one particular part in such a short time. It's the case I tell you. It forces you to do it lol.

About the Yate loons, They are great fans with High CFM, Static Pressure and low (Enough) noise. They also have the great side effect of having great LED's. If you have Yate loons in your case, you don't need any other kind of case lighting. It looks like I have CCFL's in my case but it's all just the fans. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the CM R4's. They too are great fans and in many ways better than Yate loons. They have Higher CFM (only by 2 CFM) and lower noise. But they just don't do it lighting wise. I used Yate loons to kill 2 birds with one stone. It took care of Cooling and lighting all in one.

I would suggest for you to get 4X 120mm High Speed Yate Loons (they come with either Red, Blue, or Green LED's and have 88 CFM) for your door, 1X 140mm High Speed Yate Loon (They have either Red, Blue, or Green LED's and 140 CFM) for your Rear Exhaust (and maybe even 1 for your 5.25" Drive bays if you want to use it as either a intake or exhaust) and then you can use one of your Cooler Master R4's in your GPU duct (That's what I'm using). It's not quite the CFM (no where near. Nvidia recommends 150 CFM or higher for the GPU Duct and the R4's are 90 CFM) but some air is better than none right?

As for the filters, It's a great idea. I need to get on it and stop just suggesting it to others. But my problem is that the kit (linked here) Costs $70 plus shipping (and we all know that Performance-pcs.com commits robbery with their shipping prices. There is something wrong when you pay more for shipping than the item cost lol) and then everything that I buy for my case I need to buy times 2 now lol.

I do have 2 separate builds listed for OCN. Here is Build 1 and Here is build 2. It's hard for me to even remember what I have in each lol. I often have to think, "Wait, which computer has which motherboard in it?" lol.

There is a fine art of getting your wife to let you buy high end computer parts and still sleep with you. I am now offering an online course for only $49.99 per lesson. Lol J/K. But the way you get her to let you get the stuff you want for the computer is you make her believe that you NEED it (And this works better if you actually need it lol). It also works better if you soften her up by talking to her about your computer, the parts inside, and what each one does. The more technical you are, the better this works. You know that you are ready to move on to the part where you explain what you need when you see her eye's glaze over as you are explaining something to her. Then go into what you need and why. She will most likely just want you to fix the damm computer so that she can continue to play farmville on facebook with her friends lol. If you are thinking that there is no way that this works then think about this. How else do you think that I got my wife to let me buy 2 more Intel Core i7's (on top of the one I already had), 2 more GTX 480's (on top of the one I already had), 2 More Cases, 2 More LGA 1366 motherboards (High end), 2 6GB kits of Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600 C8, a Corsair AX1200, a Corsair H70, a Corsair H100, a Lamptron FC5 V2 Fan controller, 2 Delta Fans, and a GTX 570 all within about a month? Want to be even more sick to your stomach? I could always tell you just how much I paid for all of it. I bet it's not even half of what you think it is. The most expensive thing I bought was the AX1200.

Class Dismissed, Leave your checks in the basket by the door as you are exiting class lol.

The HAF X has a bit more room inside of it (Because the top 200mm fans are actually on the outside of the case and covered with the top plastic piece) so it helps with just about everything.

I did it (Thanks again FannBlade) and not only does it look Phenomenal but it really keeps my 3X GTX 480's really cool. I have them OC'd to 880 MHz Core, 1760 Shader, and either 1975 Memory or 2000 memory (Sorry I forget and I can't get to my computer just right now to check) and my highest temp (Which is my top card... Big surprise there huh?) never gets above 70c and they are folding 24/7/365. That's with just a 90 CFM Cooler Master R4 in the GPU duct. If I upgraded to either a delta or a Gentle Typhoon AP-31 then I would get even lower temps.

It's worth the extra money. Cooler Master really hit the nail on the head with the HAF X and my only gripe is that they changed the door to only allow 1 X 200mm fan instead of giving you the option for 4 X 120mm fans. At this time I have 4 X 120mm Yate Loon High Speed (Red LED) fans on the door and they each pump out 88 CFM so just from my door alone I am getting 352 CFM intake. Add my 200mm front Fan (110 CFM) and the 120mm CM R4 (90 CFM) I added to my 5.25" Drive bays and that makes me end up with 552 CFM intake. I have 2 X 200mm CM Mega Flow (110 CFM each) and 1 X 140 Yate Loon High Speed (Red LED, 140 CFM) and that makes my exhaust at 360 CFM. So I have 192 CFM more intake than exhaust.

Just make sure that you get some nice filters for all of your intakes because I have to dust out my case every other week and sometimes every week even with all of the positive pressure that I have. I will be getting some filter kits for both of my HAF X's very soon but can't afford it just now because the wife is still pissed at me for spending well over $1200 in the past 2 months on my computers lol. She doesn't know about the GTX 570 and Corsair H100 that I have coming soon yet either lol. I hope that this helps you make an informed decision. Let me know if you need any more information.


Keep the awesome rigs coming guys,
Nathan
I know how it feels my wife is always telling me about my build(which this is my first time trying to build a rig)But she understand what I want although like you I need to order things in advance and tell her later lol.
Here is my page of my listed parts although some changed since being on here for a couple days
http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...00-3000-a.html
I am looking forward in doing this build and glad to be part of this fine community.
Also just got me a window kits for my HAF X.Doing it this weekend if nobody buys it by then.

Thanks for all the good advise, even how to deal with the wife
And the links. Also for clarifying your two HAF X builds and their separate listings!

I've seen others recommend the Yate Loons, PapaSmurf had mentioned them in a previous post. Your link at Performance PC's has them priced very reasonably.
Good point you brought up about the led's on the Yates. I had no idea how bright they were, and that can be good for case lighting. I still use case fans with leds for the lighting they provide, I've messed around with crt tubes before, still have a few, but well-lit fans are less hassle.
Even if I did win the lottery and then was able to buy a case of San Ace's, I'd miss the bling

I like the other suggestions as well, those filter kits are a tad pricey though.

Still studying your specs., a lot of good stuff there. Reminds me that I've got to upgrade my psu as well.............

Ah, I gotta go to work. Best place to think about upgrades and mods to pass the time though!

Will be updating mine with new pics today. She hasn't been cleaned in a year so.
post #14897 of 23525
Nice link to those yates, I have been thinking on swapping out the rear fan on my HAF X and removing the 230 on the side for a powerful 140 so I can see my hardware better. Those seem like they could be a bit loud though so maybe I will just get one at first. That or maybe I will just grab two and put one up front, the only downside is it wont look as good with the smaller fan....... I had been looking at the Noiseblocker PK-3s and wow they are not a cheap fan, $25 each but from the specs they seem to be fairly powerful and pretty quiet as well.

You have to push the graphics card back towards the rear of your case while screwing it in. It'll help you from stripping out the screws and/or holes. Just do it lightly enough so that you don't break the card but hard enough so that the 2 holes line up with the holes on the gpu.
