^ I think Phelan meant the top fans, since you have two different fans on em.

That, and the clear fan in the front. I understand the LEDs are the same color, but personally I think a build looks better with matching fans all around as well.

Really want to put my phantom under water now that it's got the power I need to game. I'd like to make it nice and quiet. I could buy a high end air cooler, but those aren't nearly as nice as water(and are big and ugly). I could get a closed loop cooler, but I don't really trust them due to failure rates and the warranty won't cover the full cost of my components.

Right now I really want to work on lighting for my case though, and I can think about cooling later. What sort of lighting do I want within my case?

I think that all green is kind of obnoxious(I have no internal or fan LED's at all) and I don't like just having the light from the fans anyway. Is there a natural-looking light I could use? I was thinking that the Bitfenix Alchemy white strips would look fine if I put one vertically at the very front of the case, and another at the bottom, but I wasn't sure as they would contrast with the black and green of everything else.

Does anybody have an example of their lighting setups?

No LED's? Sounds like your build is a prime subject for an NZXT Hue! RGB LED strip with bay module that allows you to change the color according to your mood! biggrin.gif

Fwiw, if you end up getting one of the corsair hydro series coolers and it leaks on your system causing damage or total failure Corsair will replace all the dead parts or will completely replace your system. You do have to send your entire rig as is to them iirc.

Nope. Not anymore.

Case is still ongoing, so they might reconsider.

Yes, they're not giving him a new 670 or the value of a new one, which sucks, but at least he's getting something. Also, case by case basis.


I'd still trust the H100. Leak test it before you put it in the system, simple as that
