So before I went water with this build I tried it all out on air first. It seemed warmer that I would like in the stock configuration. So I added three 140 at low speed to the top pulling air out. While made big improvements, I felt I was not getting the positive pressure i needed inside. I then turned the back fan around, and used it as an intake. This allows two excellent 140mm fans as intake at 80% speed, and 3x 140mm exhaust at low speed. I found temps were reduced about another 10%.

While I had wrote down exact temps, I cannot find them now. What I have still is that the motherboard, voltage reg, and cpu was = 37,45, 40 on air at idle with a 920. overclocked I found them running 40 51, 50.

Every component you use will make a difference, and you may find other results, but i think these are acceptable.

On waster however, I am seeing 29, 35(only component on air, waiting for waterblock), 23 @ idle.


ambient temp maintained at 29c.

May I please join? I have included a couple of pics.

I do agree that the air flow was a little bad with this case. I have rectified the situation by replacing all the fans. I have added two low speed 140mm Yate Loons and two low speed 120mm Coolink swif-2 fans. I also reversed the air flow from the back of the case so it is blowing air in. The air is being exhausted out the top of the case by the x 3 rad fans.

My future upgrade includes adding 6 low speed fans on my new Feser Exchanger Radiator and installing a Danger Den water block on my GTX 295 since the current water block I have on there now is epic fail.

My not to distant upgrade will also include adding a Fermi based GeForce video card.

I would also like to add a couple of SSD's but unfortunately I am a victim of wanting a whole bunch of stuff that I can not afford.

Nice stuff! Are those triebwerk fans you have on at the moment?

Do you guys think a thermochill 120.3 with push pull 120mm fans would fit up top?

Greetings, yep those are Triebwerk fans. While they are pretty efficient, they are bit too loud still for my liking.

Yes, I do think I can manage to get 6 fans on the radiator, barely but it will be very tight.

Alright so here are my plan!



White exterior, black interior



With the side panel off



Here is the custom reservoir, features dual loop res, two fan controllers and a slimline drive.



Fan controller from the inside, two laing ddcs are mounted on the back. Can also see the top fillports.


Opinions?
