Are those the ones you have in the recent pics of your Sig? Are they more of a full glow or do they still deploy the "pinwheel" type of leds as the R4's do.

I really can't find any decent pics of any of these installed in rigs. The Xigmatek and Cooler Masters were my top 2 choices from the start, however it's tough to compare. The main struggle between the two choices is that I can get the R4's for 1/2 the price of the Xig's, but the Xig's actually have 140mm Red Led Fans and thinner 200mm fans should I try to fit one into the side panel in conjunction with my cooler.

Any fan with clear blades will make the 'pinwheel' look. Once they are opaque, or painted, you will get more glow. I only painted one side of my cpu fan, so it gets a little of both

I have changed all my fans to bitfenix white led's and they look great, i have replaced my 2 apache fans on my cooler for 2 Xigmatek white led ones and i love em!! The only downside is i find the metal bezels on the phantom case kinda restrict the led glow a bit so you dont get the full effect of them

You can try the thermaltake thunderblades fans, but they kinda get loud at full speed, not very loud but a little bothersome if your on the pc late at night! I got good cooling from them!

I'm not a fan of it either. I figured since I was removing my mobo anyways, I thought I would pick up a nice HSF. When I was swapping my system over and realized that's the only way I can install it, I kinda pondered about it for a few minutes.

But, the temps have been excellent so far. So, it's not all that bad.

Guys, I don`t think ur setup is bad at all. Here is why... Ur GPU sucks air from the bottom and push it OUT of the case!! AND Grill on side panel is so close, so cool air from outside can get to CPU!!!
SO, I don`t see ANY problem here!!
Hope I explain what I mean

I'm in the market for the NZXT extensions and so far have the 24 and 8-pins in the cart. But I have a 6970, which also requires the 6-pin. Which extension covers the 6-pin?

Xigies are brighter and more "glowy". The CM R4's, especially the red LED fans are quite subdued. With the lights on you can barely see them. It looks kind of like you have the fan on a fan controller and the power turned down to 40%...except they're getting full power.
