more focused flow. Now I am looking for the two stock fans I have in the front.

X-Silent's are doing great but I have a 280 radiator behind them so I am not using them as case fans. I would expect them to work fine in that purpose as well.

Got my new Rad up and in, leak checked and (hopefully) fully bled. i'll post some temp runs once everything gets seated in. My current flow order is:

Res/Pump -> CPU -> GPU -> EX120 -> RS240

Not much air going through the EX120 though, since it only has a case fan scythe on it, so i'll be upgrading that one first. Still scouring the web for review on the new corsair high static pressure fans.

i'm leaving it in for the single reason that it acts like a tunnel and helps focus the air from the front case fans back to the Ram and Mobo.

you should cover up the sides then, now it just creates unneccessary turbulence

What are your temps like under load? Do you think you have enough raddage? What kind of OC are you running?

After running Boinc at 100% on the GPU, and 7 of the 8 cores at 100% for an hour, everything topped out at 57C, with an ambient at 25C

I'm vaery happy with the rads now, but my fans are lacking badly, i have a medium speed Scythe on the EX120, andy can just barely feel air coming out the bottom. The chip is running at 3.36Ghz at stock voltage, and the video card is at stock speeds.

Would replacing the Define Mini stock fans with GT AP-15s improve airflow? I have 4 that I use as case fans and I have been eyeing the Define Mini as a candidate for my next case. I also plan on getting GTX670s in SLI.

My ambient temps reach 30c at times and I know the Arc Mini would be a better choice but I'm starting to like the Define Mini a lot more. Just looks so much sleeker.

Is anyone using any of these in their Arc Midi (or other FD case)?

I was thinking of replacing the (OEM) FD fans like so:

Intake:
Front: 2x NoiseBlocker Silent Pro 140mm - Either PK2 or PK3
Bottom or Side: not sure yet (would need to use a 120mm at bottom tho')


Exhaust:
Rear & Top: 3x NZXT 9 Blade Rifle Bearing Fan 1300 RPM 140mm - FN 140RB


The main aim is to run all these via a fan controller and/or under-volt them. So I am going to buy one of each to test but I would prefer to just get 2 to test so what would be better the PK2 or PK3?


Cheers

have tat nzxt 140 rb for top exhuast, actually most of the time ill just crank it to max using fc4 fancontroller, its quiet enough for me,
if its me ill just get the cheaper options available to me with higher rpm, since i can always lower the speed with the FC if its too noisy
and ram it up if i need more air flow(usually is benching/burn in test).
