idle is no problem of course, but under load things may become a bit noisy if you want to keep temps reasonable
I expect loop temps to hit +20 over ambient with these fans at full speed in this configuration
UT45+good fans (push) + UT60+good fans (push/pull) should have this setup around ambient +15
Anyways, "noise" is relative, it depends what you can stand of course, and as long as everything is under the max, all is fine
I debated going with a 360mm RAD in the roof and removing the 5.25" drive cage, but then I realized the 5.25" bay is riveted in, and I don't want to drill out the rivets since I want to to keep my case fairly undamaged. I am ok with less than amazing water cooling temps. If I can keep everything under 60C, particularly the GPUs, then i will be VERY happy. Anything after that is just gravy IMHO. I will be doing some folding on the Titans, so I am very excited to get this setup installed, currently air cooling has my Titans at 80C.
Here is the plan I think I have settled on based upon everyone's feedback. After I get some comments, I will probably order tomorrow or Tuesday.
My only concern is fitting the UT60 280mm RAD in the front of the Midi R2. It should just barely clear the 5.25" drive bay if I remove the plastic 3.5" bracket that is underneath it. Has anyone else actually done this (I would grately appreciate hearing from someone who has)?
