@eNkrypt: I went with 4 x 100mm Scythe Slim (2000RPM) fans, mounting two at the bottom of the rad & two at the top of the 600T case, where the grille-insert removes. I have them in a push-pull arrangement and have noticed that there is a minus 1-2 degree difference if the fans pull air in from the top as opposed to push it out. This difference is negligible given I'm using an H100 to cool the cpu. I'll start worrying about 1-2 degree differences when I get a chiller wink.gif

@fester99: The first couple days were filled with ktext panics and me not understanding them - but that only required a few gallons of coffee and several packs of smokes to become comfortable with. If this is new territory, it's going to seem daunting. This was my first crack at the cat. I built my rig this weekend, played with it on Windows (yawn) briefly - and went right to hackintosh-ing. I just installed OSX on my 240GB Corsair SSD from an 8GB USB Lion Installer, today. WOW. The entire installation took about 5 minutes. No kidding!

You won't get any 'easy' answers at the forums, trial and error seems to win the day. Again - I'm using an unsupported X79, however if you use an X58 or Gigabyte mobo - those are the setups they've catered to. The only way i could boot my southbridge (IOSystem) is using the dsdt=null flag. BUT! I digress - I'll post that in the tony mac forums!

The short answer: It was hard for the first 2 days. The last 5 minutes was a cake-walk!

You got that right! The difference is negligible. The reasoning behind these fans is two-fold: Allow RAM removal and reduce noise when conventional fans placed on top of the case.

Without slim fans, you can skew the angle of the rad to meet fan requirements when it comes placing the rad beside the CPU power+ on this rampage iv (but still can't access ram!). With traditional fans, the next logical work-around is to move fans to the top of the case - however, once you close the grille-insert over the fans - it sounds like a server room rack! I work with these daily - It's not my 'cup of tea' for the home computing experience!

The CPU temps max about 60-65C on full load Intel burn-in test at 4000mhz. 40x100. Haven't tweaked voltage enough to get them down but... heck..60 is nothing in this neck of the woods!

I went with slims - and killed two birds with one rock.thumb.gif

Changed motherboard to Z68 and other modifications were made on CPU, VGA and the power supply.
The Fan controller that I used have was Aerocool touch2000. The LED touch screen stopped working after 4 weeks. I looked up to Aerocool Forum and alot of peeps had the same type of problem. If there is anyone thinking about installing a Fan Controller stick with Analogue system.

I need to work on my cable management and try to make more space for better air flow. May be I need to get a smaller reservoir...

nice build! if i may make a suggestion, the usb 3.0 bracket that you have on the top slot, if you change that to the bottom you can run that usb cable along your psu and thru the bottom most grommet and up the other one to plug into the usb header on the mobo. for the platform that hdd cage, if you want to remove that, there are 3 white tabs on each side of the front panel that you can push out (be careful) and the front panel will come off exposing the 4 screws on the bottom of the case to remove that platform.

if you want to pour a bit more money in and make it look just a tad bit better corsair now sells braided cables http://www.corsair.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=braided+cables

overall nice build and hope you like it! welcome to the club!
