Matches the case perfectly, there is a white led though on it that looks pretty stupid but that's minor.

Why do you have a fan controller if the Phantom has it's own, I don't really get the point..

and does anyone have 2 x 200mm fans on top? Should one be intake and the other exhaust?

i would say you can always condem the fan controller if you have fans that are high rpms like the ones i have the fan controller is a bit of a useless statements if you are going for water cooling parts the Gentle Typhoon fans by sycthe are the best that there is if you dnt wanna use the fan controller those are the fans to get. for the 200 mm make them out take then have all the others as intake that would be fine. but if your build is not water cooling so i would suggest 1 intake and 1 outtake.

both should exhaust due to hot air traveling up.

Hey guys, i cant decide on which rad fans to get. I want something very quiet, but something that actually pushes air. I really want to get the Gelid Wings:
450

I've considered the Gentle Typhoons, but they are terribly ugly, and will not match my build.
400

Also i have been looking over Noctua's. They as well are ridiculously horrid, but from what ive read outperform anything.
603

If anyone has any suggestions on anything better then these three, as in,

-Noise
-Airflow
-Aesthetics

Then please reply! Thanks!

You should also mind your own business, due to the comment, not being directed towards you. I stated something to hopefully clear up Badomans worries about OC'ing. You take things so straight, i said dumb loosely, and was hoping people would take it as, you guys are worried about the dangers of OC'ing.

Reconrunner double post!! naughty naughty!

GT's tick all of those boxes, i think they are more aesthetically pleasing then any other fan out there at the moment. Go with wings if you like the pretty lights though tongue.gif

EDIT: Also, you could just use Yate loons

Um I had posted there too. So I guess if you have a directed comment you should probably quote people. If you were trying to joke you should have made that obvious, this is the internet. BTW everyone here feels the same way I do. You need to stop posting about things you don't know very much about and try showing some respect. You weren't stating an opinion, you were making up facts about something that is measurable.

Maybe you should try to mature a little bit before posting for anything but help?

Gimme a break you came off like a jerk telling everyone that OC'ing is dumb. Everything you say is taken literal is text. Sarcasm doesn't play well on a forum. This guy spends a crap load of money to water cool his rig and you tell him not to OC because its dumb and pointless. And thats you helping?

I did not say oc'ing is dumb. I said worrying about the chip frying is dumb, due to new mb inovations. Also i did not say he should not overclock, i said he should not worry about the dangers of oc'ing. Is it that difficult to read?

Not a huge fan of loons, they turn your rig into a flashlight LOL! The gelids though are sick! And there leds, aren't that bright, which im happy about. In the end though id prefer fans without led's. Also your build inspired me to use blue tubing instead of black. I thought it would'nt look good, but from the way your build is comming out, everything looks fantastic! thumb.gif

I for one can say going up over 4.0ghz has made a considerable difference in frame rates... and allowed my GPU's to really shine. So yes, there is a reason to OC... it opens a lot of doors.
