I mean they're quiet, they look good, they cool my radiators and keep my temps low...not sure what else they can do...most complain you hear will be about the controllers not recognizing the setting or does not work...it's user error, sure i recommend it if you are looking for an aesthetic build. There are better fans though.

I just read they have a low CFM compared to other fans at far less of a cost, but also a few about people not knowing how to set them up properly, yes haha. My AF120's are pretty quiet, except the one that is directly behind a "swiss cheesed" like frontplate. Obviously it's pulling a lot of air against that bracket so it makes some noise at full speed. Not the fan though, just the air hitting that plate. So overall my PC stays pretty quiet until my 6950 fans ramp up haha.

As far as aestetics go, my build is far from that. Cheap case, 5 year old GPU, blacklight reactive cabling, hyper 212 evo taking up a ton of room, bunch of stuff stuck onto the outside of the case for easy access. It's a trainwreck. But it's my trainwreck. biggrin.gif

Btw, are you using like a powered PCIE ribbon connector to get your GPU displayed like that? Or is that a hybrid Xfire bridge/waterblock connector type thing

I fabricated a bracket and used a PCI ribbon to connect to the mobo, i've always felt it was a shame that EK made a beautiful block, and u can only see the edge of it after you mount it traditionally, so i did this. now you can see water flow smile.gif, looks good don't ya think? Different.

Great work on the custom fabricated bracket, looks like you did a professional job.
I agree with you on the fact that the EK Blocks really do look great and you can never see them, have that issue on my build at the moment, but I'm about to migrate it from a full tower onto an open bench case, so that should get things displaying nicely.

It was a little tricky to get it to be on the same plane as the pump and fitting, so that i can just do a clean 90 bend to connect it...unfortunately the Supremacy evo was sunken too far in and the ports don't line up, so i had to use a bunch of fittings to connect the two. Essential it's two L shaped brackets, bolted onto the case, and then to the riser cable...the other part of the GPU i bolted to the edge of the PCI holder thingie. It's pretty solid, doesn't move a millimeter, and i don't think it'll sag in this orientation. heh

I deff dig it. A lot. Also rep for being inventive and building what you wanted! I'm all about that, and that was a cool solution. I wouldn't mind attempting something like that if I had a different case and card. So far the only real "fab/mod" I've done is attatch a little screen to the side of my case for temp/core speed monitors for OC and gaming.

Looking good, but the sound setup is kinda underwhelming... Which speakers and subwoofer do you have? smile.gif Very nice hardware, though.
