Love the rigs here. Love these cases!! I really need to make the switch haha.. Running on a Antec 1200 still with all new fans of course. I have to replace my power source for sure though.
- What power source would you guys recommend for a future watercooling rig?
I have the one 770 so far and could be looking into another. I run a i7 930 cpu.. p6x58d premium board six GB of ram and just one ssd and hard drive. Few 12 inch cold caths.. I'll probably get rid of them with the antec. I'm using a 850w corsair tx at the moment to power it all but the fan in this psu is about to go I think.
It has a wacky sound that just makes the most noise out of anything in the case and I would like to get a new corsair psu that is reliable (and not loud). Also, do all the new PSU's have the option of disconnecting cables? Without the antec 1200 I'd be at a loss in cable management. 850w Corsair TX has way too many cables.
- How is cooling with the Define R4 on all air? I like how most of you have water cooling, although I would try it one day I don't think at the moment I can afford it (maybe when I'm back at work and not in school). I have a cooler master hyper 212+ evo which is perfect for 4Ghz overclocking but if I were to get the silent R4 would I run into problems? I want to lose the 50 pound tank (Antec 1200) and just go all out on one of these Fractal cases. Arc MIDI R2 looks nice as well.
- One last question about the Define R4 and Arc midi r2. How good are the filters for keeping dust out? I've got a cat so it can get a little dusty in my apartment. My antec leaves a good amount of fine dust on everything inside, I can deal with the fact its there now but if I could stop more from accumulating I would go out and purchase one of these cases tomorrow!
