Very nice and congrats! I cant help but getting a sudden urge to paint those ugly noctua fans every time I see them though tongue.gif

I love the look of the towers themself though, looks like a battering ram or something

yeah I hate it too! I actually picked up a few extra NZXT 140 & 120 fans I was going to swap them out before i realized they wont work!

So im thinking about either painting the Noctua ones or making some cuts to the NZXT ones to allow the mounting clip to go on.

If you paint them make sure you use the bare minimum it takes to coat the blades, and do it veryyyy evenly to avoid fan wobble.

Just recently finished cutting the 200mm mounting brackets off my window and painting the lower dual 120mm fan panel black for contrast, much like joephoto. Looks pretty sharp so far, just got to touch the paint up a bit.

going for all white LEDs, so if anyone has experience with swapping the blue LEDs out of the fan controller and power/reset button areas I'd really appreciate some help.

Doing the same yet I failed to do so twice on the fan controller...so sad

My soldering iron is cheap and has a big tip.

1.Do most people put the pull fan on the outside of the case or both inside with the radiator?

2. The H70 will be set up to push air from inside the case into the radiator then pull out right?

Drew I actually changed mine after I took the pics. But the recommendation is to have a push pull configuration into the case.

The personal feelings of myself and most people in this forum are to ignore Corsairs advice, and configure the fan as EXHAUST.
