post #4121 of 18197
After a week of having my 600T SE I have to say this is an animal of a case with some sleek looks. This will be my case for a few years to come no doubt! My rig is coming along the way I visioned it. Thanks again for the input and tips before I bought it.

Mooooar! biggrin.gif

How was your wiring on the back of the case ?
post #4125 of 18197
So i made a few changes!
Installed another Gelid for exaust and 2 uv cathodes cause the fans are uv reactive and its looking way better like this...

Made a psu cover with a corsair logo underneath the carbon vinyl and another cover for the hard disks with the Asus logo on it..Also i mounted my ssd on the drive bay!!

Ps: Darkcyde thanks for the tip on the ssd!!!

As for fan controller, I highly recommend a PWM header from your MOBO if it supports it. It will control your fan(or up to 5 fans if you buy certain splitter) all by the temperature of your CPU. I have custom fan profiles that stay silent(600-900RPM) when the temperature is less than 60C. Then run at mid range at 70C(1200-1500RPM), which is where my rig usaully runs when crunching/folding on CPU/GPU. My fans can run faster if my rig runs hotter for some reason, 1900 RPM on the vipers, and 1300 RPM on the Apaches which are my top mounted fans.

Plus no need for having to mount a fan controller somewhere. I like the materialistic look of mine.

As for a fan controller, what are you looking for in one? Multiple fans on one channel? One fan per channel? Auto control or pure manual or auto with a manual override?

You can get some nice rheobus controllers that have something like 30 Watts per channel which is enough for a few power hog fans.

If you were interested in PWM, Zolman makes a nice little controller that has a single PWM channel and three 3-pin fan channels. Although it's only 7 Watts per channel, the PWM channel can control as many fans as you want it to if you use a multi PWM fan splitter on that channel (like this: http://usb.brando.com/pwm-fan-splitter-cable_p01520c032d015.html ) because PWM splitters like that power the fans by using a molex connector to the PSU. Note that splitter only controls three fans. If you would like to do an H100 push/pull (which it looks like you have room for) you would need to find a splitter capable of controlling four fans (or add another fan connector to the splitter above with a little wire and solder). This would leave you three three-pin fan channels for case fans on the controller. It also has three "auto" ranges, by pressing a button you get slow, medium and high on the PWM channel, plus manual knobs for manual control.

Scythe makes an excellent four channel controller that has temp probes and a real auto mode that can control the fans based on temp, plus sweet little knob controls and a nice LCD display with all the temps and fan speeds shown on the display simultaneously. It does not have a high wattage per channel, so it's best to use it with just one fan per channel.

Some companies make a 12 channel controller that is just a 5 1/4" plate filled with fan control knobs.

So it really depends on how many fans, what type they are, and how you would like to control them. There are so many controllers on the market it's tough to decide between them.

Thanks for the comprehensive advice lads. Rep+1. However, I may not have to go down this road after all.

I did two things today. First was unplugging the working OEM H100 fan. This was indeed 60% of the noise but the front 200mm was making up the other 40% and was very loud. A whine and a lot of wind noise with it being right up against the front grille. Instead of cutting out the mesh with a dremel I tried something else first, which was to use long bolts and several nuts per bolt and sume rubber fan washers to position the 200mm fan about an inch back from the mesh. I then made some duct to the front mesh with a 1 inch strip of black Kydex plastic. Result is whine gone, wind noise gone and a very quiet 200mm fan. Amazingly. despite the fan now being mounted to the front panel on what are in effect stilts, the fan vibration when you touch the plastic fan frame or the metal front panel is a lot less than when the fan was directly mounted to the front panel. The result is more than I could have hoped and I can put away the dremel unused. I am now happy with the noise from all the case fans even though they are all running 100% so I don't think I need to swap them out for PWM fans nor get a fan controller.

As for the H100 running on a single low RPM fan with the high powered OEM fan switched off. Well even running a Furmark benchmark which heats up the two 580's, the max core temp on the 2500k was 39ºc. I case I find it climbing higher, say when I play BF3 later, I will be able to switch the loud OEM fan on because I have hooked it up to the one remaining working output on an old fan controller I had lying around. It can only turn the fan on and off but at least all I have to do is pop the side panel of the case and turn the dial to switch the fan on or off rather than unplugging and plugging in everytime which could damage the fan cables/headers if I had to do it too often. Anyway, this is just so I can run quiet or max cooling and loud as easy as possible until I get the H100 RMA'd, have 2/4 working fans on it and can get back to set and forget.

Many thanks to all those who have advised me along the way and/or recommended parts etc. Especially whomever it was who recommended the 166cfm NZXT 200mm. Absolutely great powerful fan and near silent when mounted back from the mesh biggrin.gif

Is that Corsair logo on the PSU cover embossed? ie. you cut some sail shapes, stuck them to the cover and heatshrinked the vinyl over them?
