They are not IDEAL for rads, you can still use them, Akasa Apache's or gentle Typhoones would be better for rads, but it is a very small difference

Akasa Vipers are better for higher FPI Rads. They are the same as Apaches, but go to 2000RPM instead of 1300RPM. They both have great static pressure for their flow though.

Finally after more then 6 years I decided that I have to retire my Coolermaster PAC-T01 to "Computer made from spare parts" duty. It's a very nice high quality case but was designed for a previous generation of hardware. The 80mm fans were noisy and inefficient and it was very cramped inside.
My rig is nothing special, a few years old now. I'm going to upgrade to the latest gear soon though. I've got my eyes on that Corsair H100...

Probably the only case on the market today that I really felt the urge to buy.

600tsefront.jpg
Temps are: Front inlet, top exhaust, GPU and CPU.

Was cutting edge when I bought this kit anyway... sad-smiley-002.gif

Sorry for the poor quality pictures.

Thanks for looking. Can I join? biggrin.gif

Well my good man, thats what PWM is for. I wouldnt do without it now that I use it.

Mine only hit 2k when my Cpu reaches 72C. And I fold at 66-70C. The last 200 or so RPM is when they start to get noticeable.

EDIT: plus they were $1 cheaper when I ordered mine. But the yellow is ugly as hell.

Ah, no wonder that mb looks so familiar. I also had a Q9450 with the DS4 in my previous build as well. Great choice! The Q9450 still goes for quite a bit on ebay, 130-150$, so that should ease the money for your new build soon wink.gif

Hey, nice job on the H60 hoses. Haven't seen anyone else do that yet. Give you a little + rep for that.

Hey. Nice job! I did that same thing you did. There's nothing wrong with your rig. Latest and greatest parts are fantastic to have, but a rig a couple of years old can still cut the mustard. My sig rig mainboard, CPU and memory are a few years old too but they are still working great. All the games I play are getting high frame rates thanks to the two HD6970(ish) cards I'm running. It would be nice to update the internal hardware every year, but it's actually fairly wasteful (not that I wouldn't do it if I could afford it). I may update the remaining parts this fall or winter but I'm in no rush since I'm so happy with how my current system is running.

Be sure to join the H50/70 club (it's for all the Hydro coolers, they haven't changed the name yet) and let us know how the H100 does in your system if you get it. It should go with your case beautifully.

Agreed 100%. I have my H70 hooked up with two Scythe 2K RPM High Flow PWM fans and I couldn't be happier with it. They're very quiet at low loads and only really start revving when the cpu is under high stress and they're still quieter than my video card fans get under high load. I also love that my BIOS does the adjusting for me and I don't have to bother with them.

H100 pre-ordered. Stage one of my system's modernisation has begun, I've been out the loop for a while so I'll have to see what's what. Never really felt up to water-cooling as I could never be bothered with chopping up cases to fit rads or matching pumps to blocks ect. Those two empty 120mm fan holes in the top of this case are just itching to get filled though.

Anybody had experience in swapping out the 200mil fans on these things and if so what ones would be a worthwhile replacement? The front fan, probably due to being on it's side seems to generate more motor noise then the other.
