Disassembled the Azza Solano 1000. I'm glad it's a tall case and has room for a non-dexterous person like myself to work . (I hate to call myself clumsy). I decided to wait on installing the 1000watt psu, as I don't think I'm really drawing all that many amps with just a couple 8800gts' and a dual core, and the Rocketfish 700 watt psu hasn't ever failed to perform. Thinks I'll just keep it in for now, and save the other psu for a new build Did some minor case mods. There's a resistor-switch for H-M-L fan speed built into the back of the case I relocated up about a couple inches. I took out the "honeycomb" rear fan bump that alot of cases seem to include as standard equipment.

Having a Dremel is a godsend when doing little mods like this. Mounted a Scythe UK3K on the outside of the case. Mounted another one blowing through the radiator out the back in push/pull. Hooked up as fan1/fan2 on my new fan controller. Used the Corsair fans as intakes on the front of case, doing supplemental VGA/memory cooling. Another UK3K on the bottom draws up cool air from under the case. A 210mm top of case blowing up, and a 230 side of case for VGA cooling finish the wind tunnel. I got everything back together... Had to mod the 230mm side fan and panel to close correctly, and went to reinstall hard drive.... the "L" shaped bracket on the sata port had busted off inside the sata cable I actually managed to superglue the bracket exactly where it had come off of, but for some reason, is reading as a bad boot disk. So, I'm on the laptop until my new hard drive arrives. Really wish I could afford a small SSD drive but they're selling for like 2bux a gig on ebay even!! Anyhow, some pics...cant wait to see my temperature differences from the ol' Thermaltake R1....

Jayce1971 - just curious, why did you install one of your fan outside the casing?

Don't know why he did. I put mine like that for more room in case.

I checked the tubing for the H70 with the pull fan on the inside. Didn't really care for how I had to route the coolant lines. Also, have a shroud for the push fan that I haven't installed yet, and with all of that on the inside, would take up alot of room. So, I just put it on the back of the case.

If you have only 3 pin fans you're a little limited. You can use the fan headers on your main board, and at least the CPU header can control one fan. You could use a splitter but you'd have to make sure your CPU FAN header is rated higher than two of those typhoon fans. Check the current rating for the CPU FAN header on your main board. It should give you a number in Amps (A). If it's more than double the current rating for one of your typhoons then you can use a Y cable and connect both of them to the CPU FAN header. Make sure the Y cable does not have a tac line for both fans. If both fan lines have a tac wire, cut it off one of them.

Other than that, you COULD wire up a rheostat or potentiometer in series with the 12V line for BOTH fans (connect them to 4 pin molex from your PSU). This way you could use the potentiometer to control the speed of both fans. You could mount it to the top or front of your case (you'd have to drill a hole). You'd have to make sure your potentiometer can take the power you're putting through it. Personally I recommend using the Y cable to your CPU FAN header if your fans won't overload the header (I believe this is what Corsair recommends for the H70, but I don't know the current rating of their fans).

You could do this:

http://www.paqt.co.uk/docs/PaQ_PWM.pdf

Which would effectively turn your 3 wire fans into 4 wire, but it would cost about the same and be a lot easier to just get a fan controller or use the Y cable I mentioned earlier (or just purchase a couple of PWM fans).

As for the different speeds in a push pull setup. Sorry, I haven't tried it myself. I would assume (I hate that word) that the differing speeds would create some type of turbulence that would hinder the smooth flow of air through the rad. But, as I mentioned, I haven't tried it.

I noticed the pump wiring has a 3 pin header, and all my other fan pins on my MB are currently in use. Would it be ok to connect the H50 pump to the power supply via 3 pin splitter?

I have no idea why those who favor custom WC loops say this performs almost the same as a high end AC. I am running 1.52V(more when I push for stability at 3.9+) and I haven't gone over 37C in 50 run IBT max tests or in P95 blend @ 12hrs. These people are clearly on some good drugs or mentally unstable.

May have to try modding mine soon since it will prepare me a bit more for a full WC loop which I plan on with my next full build.
