Corsair just came out with some new fans that look really good but I haven't read anything on how they compare,

thanks for the info, i'll be adding a XSPC ES120 to the bottom of the case, hopefully picking it up tomorrow. My main radiator is an XSPC RS240, if that helps narrow down a good fan choice. i'd like to have matched fans (just bugs me if they aren't), so i'm looking at purchasing 6 120x25 fans (4 on the 240 and 2 on the 120), and possibly going ahead and getting another 2 to put on the front of the case (and i'll have to paint all the blades white, unless i find somewhat are already black cases with with blades).

EDIT: additional info.

I plan on adding the 120.1 to the fan at the bottom of the case. i will swap the exhaust barb on the DD full cover car d(just installed today), and run that straight down into the rad, then out of the rad straight up to the 120.2 rad at the top.

The rads you have love more air. I'm love that DD block, looks like you have a back plat for it. thumb.gif

It just so easy to make a good looking build these days. About 5 years ago, you would have to do a lot of work to make something look as nice as an average Joe can build out of the box now. Hell you can buy PSU's now that are 100% sleeved now. Cases that have cable management you have try to make the wiring look bad. Closed loop water cooling that works, full kits that anyone can put together for full custom performance and looks. MB's you don't have to buy the top of the line to have one that looks good, even the budget boards now look way better than the high end ones of just a couple years ago.

Since everything was covered on insurance, and I got a great deal on the 922, I was able to also upgrade to a 6950 and still have over 100 quid left in reserve if I don't upgrade the motherboard.

All in all, I loved the Scout and I really liked the build I did, but it was just barely too small for me.

From the European site... Wow, just those 2 pieces cost more than what I could buy a new case for. That UPS option was the only available shipping option. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

It's an EK backplate. i actually had to notch the back of it to get it to clear the locking tabs on my RAM. but unless you know to look for it, it seems like it should be there. i'm picking up my new ES120 later today, so i'll be opening my loop twice in two days, good times. for now, i'm going to just stick with the fans i have, but once i figure out what fans i want, i can start swapping them in without have to open the loop up again. I ran boinc all night with GPU @ 100%, and using 7 of the 8 cores at 100%, none of my cores got above 60C, and the GPU topped out at 63C with my ambient about 24C, so we'll se how much of a difference the new rad makes.

these fans have me really intrigued. if the specs are believable, i could just run a pair of these instead of the 38mm ones i have and still get better performance. they are listed at 5dBa louder, but i could probably tolerate that or just through in a small inline resistor to slow them down..... like you mentioned, to bad there aren't any reviews yet. only thing i've found in an unboxing on youtube, and he really didn't have a clue as to how to give any info.

I really wish fans had a standard for rating them, you can never go by specs between brands, heck you can't hardly do it with in the same brand. The more I look at them the less I think they will perform as good as a top fan, like the GT-15's. They really look like the same fan as what they put on their coolers with a cool looking frame. I'd go for the GT's until we get a good review stating other wise. I hope you best but I'm guessing you will not pick up 5C with a new rad. But if it is running as an intake you will see a nice drop in case temps. Rads are funny like that, they don't put off a lot of heat until you really start to make the rad out.

Didn't know they started selling in the US, they have been up in Canada for awhile, they should be fine.
