Thats @ 4.0 on the i7? damn. what are you temps like on load?
As well, how did you end up mounting your res? i dont see any mounting hardware anywhere lol

I'll try and to this tonight. Thanks for the suggestion, any other suggestions are very welcome

Big mod planned as well, including the H50.... soon
Adding you now, I love your cable sleeving - very well executed!

I would advise against plugging a san ace straight into the motherboard, they may well draw more current than your MoBo can handle. At least check it out thoroughly.

I know what you mean though. Do you still have the 240 rad, what make was it? I wonder if your pump failure was related to the rad problem or not.

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.
Fractal Design make fantastic stuff, I use 4 of their case fans and although they dont move much air they are completely silent. They also sell noise dampening kits and the cases that they make are amazingly well setup for quiet operation. Love their stuff.

no I returned the rad back to microcenter after the experiment failed. kinda felt bad about it but I buy so much stuff from them that its okay.

I am trying to find a good cheap used thick 120mm rad though. Don't wanna spend anymore than $25. Keep it cheap and I won't feel bad about not just buying a cherry picked loop in the first place.

Yeah, we'd need to pick a very low flow resistance radiator to go for a 240 rad. I have the case for it so I'm curious to try actually.. Especially as I have long been considering a full loop.

I've actually got the perfect space for two 240mm radiators, then again I have all the performance I need at the noise level I want...

Being bored I decided to make audio clips of the fans on my Antec Twelve Hundred. The microphone was held about five inches away from the middle of the side panel.

All fans on low:
low.wav

Case fans low, GPU fan high:
lowgpu.wav

Case fans low, GPU and PCI fans high:
lowpci.wav

@ PC SArge and Mattlef - thanks for the replies. I've been taking in a tonne of reviews today and have to say, I'm starting to swing towards the 690 II. It's 20 percent cheaper, the fans are as quiet as the HAF and it does have a great option for watercooling later. - it just doesn't come with a funky window

Anyway, I'm not buying this week, I've still time to chew it over. Right now I have to decide if I'm going to go for the H50 or stick to a tower cooler (Noctua NH U12P).

I'm looking for a silent, silent cooling system allowing an i7 920 to be overclocked to about 3.600 Mhz - I know the Noctua can give the performance I'm looking for . . .the H50 can cool too - but I've been unable to find any decent noise performance testing reviews for it.

Was in this club a few months ago, but I finally finished my setup so cheers!

So, plugging it into an adapter then into a molex would be better?

Yeah, you'll want a fan controller though because those things are LOUD. You might be alright to plug it into the motherboard. Most boards support 0.5A, some support 1A. Check your manual perhaps.

I plug this fan a lot but if you can get a Feser it only need 0.51A which can be run off the motherboard.
