if your going to mod your rad down there on the side like that your going to have to mod the back for air flow as well

or you can mod the bottom add a 240 and do the same

your choice.

Interesting that you have your H-50 attached to the top instead of the rear. Why did you do that?

It's more of an experimental placement rather than a perminenet change, but seeing as the Typhoons push a tremendouse amount of air i thought i would try using them as exhaust rather than intake.

Unfortunatly i hasn't really paid off and having the H50 as outtake has increased idle temps of my GTX295 by quite a bit. Although the CPU stays quite cool.

It's only a few days since i recieved:
2x Typhoons 1850 RPM
3x Xigmatek White LED 120mm Fan
1x Xigmatek White LED 140mm Fan

So i'm just trynig out different scenarios to try and find the best combination.

How quiet are the 1800 rpm fans? It is hard to imagine them being anywhere near "silent."

Not silent but certainly not loud. It really has to be heard to be believed. They are fantastic fans!

It's more of a low humming sounds rather than the noisy motor sound you get from other high speed fans.

Thanks. I am thinking about getting two. I have a fan controller so I can always reduce the rpm if I want to make them more quiet.

I've got an 800D otw and I'm planning to mount a 240 down there just like in that picture. I asked for measurements on the spacing down there and got 125-127mm as an answer. That being said there are a wide variety of 240 rads that will fit down there. Just check the site before purchasing since most of the vendors will list dimensions.

Off the top of my head I know EK's rads will fit, the rad in that picture is an XSPC RX240 I believe.

The worklog it came from can be found here.
