Hey scouts, so I was thinking of changing my case theme to either blue or white, and was wondering which fans you guys would recommend, as well as a fan controller. I'm liking the nzxt sentry, but I was wondering if there are any fan controllers that also allow you to turn the led's on and off?

Here's what I have right now:

Well, this evening I succumbed to my perfectionism and made a new window. This time I used better technique which resulted in better hole alignment and, most importantly, no visible nicks. No picture since, well, there's no visible difference.

Put my new H50 on with no problems exept the old fan was kinda stuck, after running thru the night with nothing exept spotify i used Hwmonitor to check the temp of the cores and they ranged for 20 cellcius to 25c, havent tried full load yet but after playing CoD:MW2 for 4 hours they was at 40C. Wich feels great and now im gonna just try the "OCGenie" and check the temps with an "minor" OC. Havent OCed anything before so the feature is great for me, But il have to learn how to OC myself to get the best out of it.

Those sound like some excellent temps... I am wanting to get one of those h-50s for my big system. It seems like a really awesome cooler.


On K10s note about the Arctic Freezer I have to say that I have personally used on of the AMD AC Brands for years and it is a really great air cooler.


Linkin93.. Wire management is not your strong point but I would wire tie those loose wires into 5 wire bundles and tie them every 2 inches. But it is a really nice build. I don't recognise the PSU builder but I am sure you did your homework on that.

Monsk On the Mod for a White and Blue theme. Silverstone has an awesome fan that is white that is super fast. You could use one black light at the top and one white tube down the back corner for lighting.

Hubwub.. What can i say .. You have come a long way, Scout. Your Build and wire management looks great but I would say try the false floor on the rig making sure that you line the edge of your false floor with rubber molding for electrical safety, or put 3 wire ties on those three USB cables and the control cables and its perfect. if youre just thinking of adding something I would say buy some red 4 inch cold cathodes. one at the top and one down the back side. Also you could put in card reader in the front of the rig. Lian Li makes a really nice one with a USB hub on it as well.. here it is.

I love the temps but i think they are so low because of the indoor temp, its about 3-4c colder than normal so i suspect that the normal idle Temp is about 25c and load 45c

For the fan's I'd reccomend the Grey Xigmatek they move a good amount of air, and they are dead silent, they also come in a 5 blade 140mm version, they have a mild white light that's seeming too spiral from the edge into the middle of the fan.

And for fancontroler i acctualy have no experience but i've heard alot of good things about the Sunbeam Rhobus and it's Bigger brother

That sounds like very high load temps, I'd try too change the TIM on it or just change the cooler into some other cheap alternative like the Cooler Master TX3
