The red led's I'm using right now do a splendid job of washing all contrast out of the rig and making everything glow red. I've finally figured out that using limited accent red led's bathed in a neutral white color gives the look a much more dynamic appearance.

Yeah, the LED strip is definitely easier to install and has a much smaller foot print, but i just wasn't happy. These cathodes came with really short wires, so I extended them. Now I just have to sleeve them.

if your future entails running 30 fans, multiple PWM pumps (besides D5 unless AC's d5) & sensors, get the AQ6, if this is not in your plans, go with the CW611

actually, i think that laptron can do flow meters & temp sensors as well, it just doesn't do PWM.

Im just worried about buying a fan controller that isn't the right kind or sufficient, i hate clicking fans, i just want to lower them enough to be quieter without clicking/buzzing etc.

The original NZXT Mix v1.0 was notorious for this. Most of the inexpensive controllers did this. Eventually, Nzxt revised the Mix (voltage dropped per channel unfortunately) and came out with v2. The Mesh was dropped because of the same issue.

All my fans are set to 40% power (lowest setting) and they're almost dead silent. Great controller without the huge cost and complexity of a high end controllers.

Btw, I found the 120 version of the cougars far noisier then the 140s. Though the 120s are a bit less noisy then the CM R4 I used to have.



Edit: keep in mind the Mix2 is a manual controller.

Nope. Its a manual controller mind you.

Luv that the numbers light up and can be changed to different colors. Obviously, mine is set to green biggrin.gif

Apologies for the poor pics, late at night, terrible lighting and a crap photographer. I'm contemplating adding some interior lighting now and spraying the ram covers white.

One things for sure, after this build, it will be a while before I do any upgrading!

Nice! thumb.gif For GPU loop, what is your water temp like when gaming (I also would like to know your ambient temp), e.g. BF3/BF4?
