@POTO

I want to eventually use the quick disconnects on my build, but had a question on how you had them installed.

Are you placing the male disconnect directly into the CPU block? Are you using and adapter changers and couplers?

Vercomtech,

Yes, I have 5 Male G1/4 connectors in the system. Two are on the CPU block, two are on the GPU block, and one is on the front radiator. The way I have my system setup I can remove almost every component individually. I can disconnect the graphics cards and remove them as one assembly. I can disconnect just the CPU block and remove it. I can disconnect just the top radiator and remove it (And I’ve already had to do this on a few occasions). I can disconnect just the reservoir and remove it. However, the pump and front radiator are not connected by a disconnect and must be removed together. I worked on this setup for about two weeks before getting it just right, and now it's very efficient for dissambly. I highly recommend the Koolance quick disconnects. They are super easy, and let very very little water escape when disconnecting (not even enough to form a drop). I was a little worried they would restrict the flow with so many in my setup, but my flow seems very good in my system, and with my CPU oc'd to 4.8GHz at 1.35v and my 3 GPU's oc'd to 900 MHz at 1.1v my temps are maxed around 65C for the CPU and 50C for the GPU's.

+Rep for the info! I am wanting to do the same thing, making it so that i can take and move any one part of my loop, simply by being able to disconnect and move things without having to drain the entire thing.

^ LOL

I went ahead and wedged it between the HDD cage and my PSU. It doesn't make vibration noises which is good but I don't know how much good it'll do.

I think I'm going to get a side panel from MNPC and have him put side fan cutouts in it.

Also, one of my H80 fans is making a weird whining noise. Been doing it for some time now.

Ok, I would not recommend this because it did what I thought it would do..

I just bought minecraft and I was sitting in the main menu and my 6850 just got louder and louder. I opened CCC to see that the fan was running at 80% and the GPU temp was 69 degrees with ~80% usage. I assume it was pushing all the air away from the card.. I'm no good at these things. mad.gif

Nice job. It's looking good. Is that a 1m NZXT LED strip? The H100 sure fits nice in the 600T. Almost like it was made for it.

Good question. Why not try it both ways and let us know the difference between the two? Take some before and after temps for us? Remember that if you do use the rear fan as intake you could be pulling in a lot of dust with no filter. I think it would be worth a try though.

I've been thinking for a while about buying this case (the white SE version) to replace my Storm Scout but have read on some sites that the air flow isn't that great as I plan on air cooling with my NH-D14 if I do pull the trigger and buy it. So my question is what is the air flow like in comparison the Scout and is it worth the upgrade. I know they're not even close in terms of price bracket, interior layout (the Scout has rubbish cable management in comparison) as well as build quality (although for $89 the Scout's build quality is pretty good) and probably can't really be compared. I'd also be using it with the crossfired 6950s I'm running right now. If I do buy it I'm considering replacing the fans with Bitfenix Spectre Pro white LED model if the stock fans aren't that good. I like my Scout but I think I've fallen in love with this case. My apologies if I'm asking in the wrong place or if this question has already been asked.

I don't know what the air flow is like in your Storm Scout case, but the airflow in the 600T is a solid medium with the side window and a solid pretty-darn-good with the side mesh and fans. It's not a high air flow case if you're not using the mesh. I'm using the window, but I have added another 120mm intake fan and a high airflow 200mm front fan. Using 4 x 120mm fans on the side panel mesh should keep your NH-D14 working cool. You might want a dust filter though.

I've decided to implement a "no re-posting pics" policy.  From now on please use the spoiler text option.  It will make it easier on me when updating and will make the page load faster for everyone


Wow, that really sucks dude. Half the fun is seeing all the pictures going down the page. I agree that reposting an entire series of pictures is going too far, but reposting a picture relevant to your point, or to a complement is part of what makes the site fun. Seeing this I had to go up and remove the pictures. Personally, I never bother clicking on the hidden text links.

No, mounting a fan there in the picture I can't show without a link is not allowed. It's illegal and the fan cops will get you. Seriously, let us know what the temp difference on your video card is after you mount the fan. Looks like it could be a good idea.

Does your video card pull air in at the bottom or exhaust it? If it pulls air in, then your fan should have been OK if it was pushing air up. What direction was the airflow on the fan?
