Black coating, matched with equal, if not better airflow, more fan options and insane water cooling potential makes the 690II a definite winner in my humble opinion.

However, I'm having some samples sent to me from a company in Sweden who are going to be releasing new cases to the North American market. They'll be around the 110.00CAD pricepoint and are considered dead silent. Think Antec P190series with much better airflow and even better sound dampening with a complete minimalist look.
how silent is dead silent...i have so many fans that with them all at full speed...my pc sounds like a 747 taking off...

It uses Bitumen as its sound dampening material. So I can say that it will be a whisper in comparison to most cases, even with a tonne of powerful fans running at 1800rpm if need be . I can confirm that NCIX will carry it.
Its called the Define R2 from Fractal-Design.

I'll put it through hell and back for you guys, so you'll know what you're dealing with lol.

But yea, the only issue with most sound dampening foam is that they act as insulation, so it will really increase the ambient temp inside the case, while keeping it quiet. with most there's a trade off... I guess we'll just have to wait and see what this one provides.

As to the H50..... has anyone successfully added a 120.2rad to the loop? i know someone here tried and the pump died, but I'm quite sure the pump is strong enough to handle a 2x120rad. It would have to be low resistance, but if it would work.... then there is a lot of potential. Thinking of even adding a GPU block to the loop if a 2x120 could work

Haven't posted here for ages, but after reading this thread (and a few others) have 'upgraded' to the HAF932 and the H-50.

Woe what a difference the H-50 had made to my temps. My 9450 was running pretty hot at 2.8 Ghz (70c 'core' temps) with my Zalman 9700, and overclocking to 3.0Ghz produced 100c+ core temps before quiting Intel Burn testing app (default voltages)

Switched to the H-50 today, with the stock 120mm fan, and I now overclock to 3.2Ghz, and it gets no hotter than 65c (cores) running the Intel Burn test. I'm sure this is probably not any better than a 'true' cooler, but it's pretty quiet even at 'full tilt'.

The question that I have, is I'd ideally like to use the larger 140mm fan at the rear of the HAF932, but can't seem to find any 'Shroud' / 'Adapters' (120mm <-> 140mm) in the UK. Anyone know of any?
The reason for asking, is that I found this:
http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...0-updated.html

And wondered whether these are 'custom' parts or off the shelf. Seems to have made a reasonable difference. And if the H-50 is setup as push-pull, is there a major impact with regards to noise levels?

so, with my hrrible attempt at making the gaskets with a razor blade and a not so steady hand, I had a guy at work hand bend me some blades and he found me a nice spring loaded hole punch which is very useful for the screw holes

ewps, pics coming in a second

Thanks for the reply's. I left the tubing a bit on the long side so its very easy for me to clean the front fan filters. The front basy move forward out the front of the case about an inch before you can lift out the filter. I'm not worried about the pump right now. I know it can handle it.

I will be adding an MCR220 or 320 res to the loop in the not to far off future. That's why I added the Radbox.

When you do the mod, do a work log I'm sure everyone would love to see your progress.
I'm thinking of doing a 120x2 loop with the pump at the highest point, pulling from the rad instead of pushing to the rad. might be easier on the pump....
Still trying to decide to either mod this, or just go for a full out w/c loop...
damn you gateway H50, damn you lol

Thanks! I know that the Swiftech is a little OVERdone with everyone else doing the same thing but it fit so well in the Storm Sniper case that I couldn't resist! and I can't argue with the results........10c drop in temps at load and 5c at idle!

We're working on my Son's setup now and he's doing it a bit different. We'll post some pics of that mod. There's a TON of ideas flowing here and I hope to get a few more ideas for the next "phase"
