you probably dont want to break the bank and get $30+ 200m fans right?

Performance
Silence

the 120mm or 92mm i would just run to frys\microcenter and get something within my budget.
no point in getting GTs which will cost over $60 shipped or something.

my plan on adding a 240mm radiator on top while keeping the handle failed on me. too much work and money.
im resorting to a H60 or something equivalent.

i cant imagine it would nice anyways..if i went though with it.

oh well still excited tongue.gif

AMD Phenom II B50 ( X2 550 Successfully Unlocked) / OCZ Vendetta 2


Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H

- I'm thinking about some modding, maybe some cathodes also.


- This is a quick build, I'll revise the cable management next week or so.


- Any opinions ?



I can still see the wires tongue.gif

How loud is the performance one? Also, are they really necessary? I spent over a week without my two upper 120mm fans and I haven't been noticing any drastic change in temperature.

So I realized today that it is entirely possible to mount a Corsair H70 in my vulcan case... by simply removing the mesh at the top of the case I was able to install my cooler untill it is upgrade time next month... woohoo!

thats cuz ur using a water cooler. having high air flow in and out of your case will only benefit heatsink type coolers.

the performance one is pretty loud on paper. if noise is an issue. (dont blame you it is to me too)
i would just get the silent one just to be safe. but then again u can always connect the performance one to your fan controller.

I plan on buying the Vulcan with a MIV Gene-Z, but I had a few questions about it for those of you who own it.

1. How well would the H80 fit when mounting the radiator in the front? From a lot of pictures in the thread, I think it should fit okay, but I haven't seen any specifically with an H80 inside.

2. Is it impossible to get the 8-pin CPU cable routed properly? Most of the pictures I've seen have them routed through in plain sight or around the ceiling of the case. Is there any way to just make the cable go through the big CPU backplate hole in the case and have it pop out at the top of the motherboard?

1. the tube length of the H80 is the same as the H50 and theres plenty of pics of the H50 in there. also the H80 has a thicker radiator so u would acutally get a few more millimeters of length then then H50. (+fan if your using both) ~"1 longer.

2. i dont think your question only applys to the Gene-Z boards. but its good to be cautious.
i had a case where i ran into this problem. i was forced to either cut a slot on top for the 8pin to come out of top or slip the wire in-between the motherboard and motherboard tray. but u would need to take out the motherboard first.the motherboard spacer gave me enough clearance but just barely. i would just cut a slot on top of the tray though.

Thanks for the response. I guess I'll definitely be buying it then. Custom water cooling has been fun while it lasted, but I've been looking to get a more portable case for a while, and everything about the Vulcan just seems perfect for my needs. I had one more question though: When mounting the H80, would I orient the fans as intake or exhaust? From what I can remember, Corsair recommends to make them intake fans, but wouldn't that just blow hot air right onto the GPU when my CPU is under load? I plan on getting the 200mm side fan if it helps at all.
