It does show that 3 GT fans outperform 4 NZXT FN fans. I had the cash to spend so I went for it, worth it to me. biggrin.gif

That's fine. Never said they won't outperform an if you have money to waste that's fine too. I just think that it's too much to spend to wring 1-2 more celsius out of your already well performing cooler. Money that you could put toward something else in your loop or set aside for a future CPU upgrade. I like GTs', I just think that if I can get the same or similar performance from another fan on the cheap that it's the best use of my money. Do what makes you happy and be damned my stance, it's your money after all. But for me I don't see enough of a return on the investment to make it worth it. biggrin.gif

thay will run as low as 260rpm yes and i got a shock when thay went up to 2200rpm
speed rated for 600rpm-2000rpm
i thing when u have them at 800rpm thay are quieter u don't evan hear a friction noise
and for cleaning just pull on the fan blades and thay just pop right out of the fan cage

My R4s run on like 1-2v which they're super quiet. At 2000rpm, 20 of them are just too loud tongue.gif

Ceramique 2 thermal paste (FYI i applied way less than a drop (a thin ~1mm dash) on each vrm section that is covered with thermal tape. Ek reccomended this for "even higher cooling performance." It seems to work well with the thermal tape combination, so long as you don't over do it.

Total cost was $450 dollars.
What do you guys think? Constructive criticism is welcome, but take it easy on me, this was my first time biggrin.gif.

My max temps when cpu + gpu are at max load with high oc are 68c cpu 48c gpu

congrats on your first loop, but why are the tubes so long?

Thanks biggrin.gif

To answer your question , I over estimated on a few cuts and also employed a better safe than sorry mentality.

Not bad but Ceramique is only good for affixing the washers to a block before mounting it imho. MX4, MX2, G751, 7783D... ANYTHING would have been better. That said, welcome to water cooling. thumb.gif

Yes I agree with that. On skinee labs, ceramique 2 was smack in the middle, trailing one degree celsius hotter than mx2 in best contact and the gap widens as it cntact worsens. I wanted to use pk-1 but didn't have any on hand. At least it isn't ceramique original biggrin.gif.

Welcome to water cooling! I know its exciting to get it all together but it seems like you rushed through that to get it done. I see you got some thermal paste on your fingers and it made its way onto your blocks, easy to clean up though. What happened to your thermal tape for your memory? I think scissors would have helped there. And as others mensioned you have a lot of extra tubing in there, trim it up! thumb.gif
