Going to get a new front 200mm fan for this beast. OP says they are the fans are XIGMATEKs. Anyone know if the XLF is better than the CLF?? If not, I may get the NZXT fan and find a way to fit it. Maybe turn 90 degrees and Drill new holes since the other fan is held on by a bracket. The NZXT fan is 10mm thicker and a lot faster, so the bracket wont work with that.

If I get it I would paint the blades black or a Graphite color. Aim is better cooling, no LEDs, and to be blacked out. Opinions??

If you mount the HDD cage on the floor in front of the PSU, you can mount a 30mm thick fan on the outside of the fan brackets.
A 30mm thick fan may fit with the HDD cages mounted on the platform but it will be a tight squeeze and of course you'll have to drill new mounting holes.






Post some pics so I can add you to the list.

Will post when I either borrow a camera, or figure out how to get my POS blackberry to transfer pics to my computer. It has a fried USB plug and it wont sent Email(no blackberry service crap).

What fan are you using?? Also I wanted to mount the fan to the case, so it cant circulate the same air through the gap at the bottom and top of the bracket. Thanks for the tips and pics though, nice to see and food for thought. Although I would rather mod the bracket then the case. I took out both HDD cages anyway(and the pedestal), and have my drives in a Nexus Doubletwin in the 5.25 bays.

Was also thinking about adding another 240 rad to the bottom, but my case sits on the carpet(very thick carpet) and I dont think it would get enough air.

Phobya makes a 200mm rad. or you could fab up a bracket to mount 2 184mm rads in the front easy. If you really want a 240, you would have to cut the in to the bottom 5.25" drive bay.

I seen someone linked the Phobya earlier, If I get the nxzt fan I might get that as well. But 100 bucks seems pretty steep. I was talking about mounting the 240 on the bottom horizonally from the PSU to the from 200mm fan. But I am worried about the amount of air that can reach it.

Baldo, my main reason for getting a new fan is that I dont think it is adding enough fresh air. Yours looks nice, but still only produces the same amount of air. The nxzt fan says it pushes way more.

Just trying to figure out how to get better airflow, and silence in the case. I am going to order some new PWM fans and make a PWM splitter for CPU header, so I might as well order a 200mm.

Make a splitter like this http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10..._AK-CB002.html
Thanks for the responses guys.

OK, I didnt get any real camera, but I do have my Blackberry. I took all these shots with it, then had to Bluetooth them to an old touchscreen Nokia(USB port is fried on the blackberry and I dont have the service to send E-mail). Then I uploaded to my computer then to here, so excuse the quality. And I broke my second CCFL in my Liquid Fusion Res(dropped both times and still no leaks), and I am still awaiting replacements(bought 2 this time).


I replaced the rear Corsair fan with an R4, and mounted the Corsair(which is 1k rpm max) into the 5.25 bays and made it easily removable(going to make a mesh grill and filter to match the rest). I took out both 200mm crap fans and replace with a 240 Rad top, and a 140mm Antec Tricool in the front(pushes more air at medium it seems, and is quieter with NO LEDs). EDIT: I also put my HDD and SSD into a Nexus DoubleTwin, which mounts into the 5.25 bay.

In the near future, I am going to add my MOBO to the loop, and add the 200mm Phoyba and either 220mm Yateloon or 180 Silverstone Air Penetrator. Also going to replace my 2 Rad fans and the one in the 5.25 bay with some 120mm PWM fans, and make a PWM splitter with its own power supply and hook it up the the CPU header.

WC loop consists of the (in this order) Apogee XT, 240mm Swiftech QP, 250mm Liquid Fusion, MCP 655 Vairo. I used 1/2 ID 3/4 OD Primoflex UV blue(looks purple but is totally blue) tubing with 4 True Silver Compression fittings and 1 barb and 1 90degree fitting.

Anyway here she is finally. EDIT: Thanks for the help with imaging jdmfish
