Alright! I know they are great fans, I was just curious about the speed.

Have you tried using an sp120 or similar pressure optimized fans?

Also, have you put your hand against the fan with the fan filter on vs off to see how much more or less air it pushes? That should give you a pretty good idea how much difference there is.

I never really liked fan guards but they sure are less restrictive!

I have indeed, i tried an SP120 Quiet Edition and it wasn't anywhere near as good redface.gif

I know what you mean about the guard, it wont be as good looking as the filter but it will perform much better!

Argh, I was messing about in my case with my harddrives and it seems I broke one frown.gif

When my pc starts up you hear clicking sounds and it doesn't appear in my computer. What could I try? Thank god it was the one that was empty

I've been lurking on here for a while now, and thought I'd finally come forward and join the club, even though my build doesn't rate anywhere near as nicely as some of the ones I've seen posted in this thread, amazing builds guys!

The reason I've decided to come forward and join the club is because I noticed a few pages back that someone was asking about using a BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm as their top fan. I replaced both corsair fans with these fans, but yes, the case has to be modified to allow the top fan to fit. You need to make the hole in the back tray wide enough to accept the fan, but also because the housing of the fan is so chunky, you also need to sacrifice one of the top panel clips in order for it to fit. I was originally nervous about removing the clip, but since doing it, there appears to be no difference in the fit of the top panel. No noise, vibration or weak part of the panel at all!

This is my first pc build as I've never been in a position to be able to afford to do it in the past, all my old computers have ran on hand-me down parts and a few cheap components that I could manage to afford. With that, I never took much time to think about how the rig would look from the inside, so I'm in the process of figuring out what I can do to make the inside look as good as the outside, and you guys have definitely inspired me greatly, Thank you so much for all the photos of you amazing builds!

Here's some photo's of my build, apologies for the quality, I broke out the iPhone camera for it! I've also included a photo of an in progress of the top fan case mod to give you an idea of just how close it can come to the motherboard mounting holes.

Not bad dude, welcome to the club thumb.gif

Any reason why you mounted the Antec Khular pump on upside down though?

Thanks!

I couldn't quite decide which way around to put it. If I kept the rad the way it is now, but with the pump right way up, the hoses didn't flow if that makes sense?, and if I flipped the rad, the hoses came pretty close to the top fan, and I thought it might interfere with air flow if it was that way.

Was probably just thinking about it too much!

I'll probably be changing it again as I'm considering putting two corsair SP120's onto the rad, but need to do some research first to see it'll actually benefit the system if I do it otherwise it's a purely aesthetic modification.

I'd suggest that you RMA it if it's still under warranty. I'm curious as to what you did in order for it to break, hard drives are practically indestructible when the computer is turned off. If the computer was running and they were writing at the moment that's a whole other story.

Damn, but thank god it's the one without data and the smallest of the bunch (1TB)

I just moved it around to see how it would be if I would mount it in a 5.25 bay. I put it back in it's original place, started up pc and well the rest you know.

And to say I was gonna sell it frown.gif

I would suggest cutting a second hole in your side panel to add a second fan. What air filter do you have on the fans?
