900D stock is not that great, if you know how to mod it can be a really good case IMHO. smile.gif

I own both the 900D and a SMA8...

The 900D is pretty good for the price and I think many people tend to forget this.

I'm currently building up my SMA8 and while it does have advantages in build quality, flexibility etc - It does turn out to be a much more expensive option especially down here in Australia, when adding a few extra bits and pieces to make it workable.

A couple of things I really like about the 900D are that it has a good fan filtering system in place and I still think it looks better from a direct front perspective as compared to my SMA8.


If you replace the individual drive bays with a large brushed aluminum panel it would look pretty sleek IMO.

Hey all, new guy building first custom loop with a couple questions that I'm hoping you can answer for me. I posted this in the benchmark section but got no answers.

What's the best free benchmarks to really test out a system? I want to test this thing out while I have it together and air cooled so I can compare once I have the LC going.

And do you run with silver in your loop or not? I can't figure out if that's just a gimmick or not.

If you're looking for temps, IBT or x264 paired with something like Furmark or maybe OCCT is a solid idea. I normally run x264 with Furmark on its highest settings if I need to heat my room up quickly.

Edit: Silver is an antimicrobial and it's not a bad idea to toss a coil in your res if you're worried about any kind of growth in your loop.

Its no gimmick,it does work. However,its not as good as a dedicated biocide,silver takes time to build up in effectiveness,it will also eat your copper.


Why would anyone take a 900D over a Phanteks?

Hi guys, recently built my very first custom loop. It was a tight fit in my 450D with the gpu, res and front rad. I am however very happy with the result. Maybe in the future I will upgrade to a Phanteks Evolv ATX because I'm in love with that case and it's better for watercooling. Comments on my loop are always welcome! I'm using a 240 rad at the top and 280 at the front.

Hi all, maybe you can answer a potential issue I may be facing. (also if this is the wrong place to be posting this please let me know where I need to post it.)

So I finished by loop about a month ago. All running smoothly, until tonight, I noticed tiny white particles in the coolant. Also whitish circles in the res. Actually looks like mold.

Here is some images for you all to see: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Overall loop


Coolant is distilled water with corrosion inhibitor and a silver kill coil. Loops been running for about a month.
Maybe one of you can confirm if this is a problem so that I can act accordingly.
Thanks.

Quick question, and probably a long shot; Does anybody know the size/dimensions of the screws included in the "Hardwarelabs SR2 480MP" ? The ones that came in the packet were to short for my fans.

I'm back home for Christmas, so can't check them myself.

http://www.hardwarelabs.com/sr2/images/sr2mp/diagrams/SR2_480_MP_Mounting_Diagram.pdf. M4 threads, fans are generally 25mm, add another 3mm, so 28mm should be solid. Included are M4x28mm.
