There was some discussion about turning on/off the Spectre Pro LEDS. Well, it seems like BitFenix has a clean solution.

Looks pretty interesting.

Finally! I finiiished. Here it is.
Went from this:

436

to this:

338
338
338700
700338700
I was inspired by the Battle Star Galactica Cylons...love that show!

Will change the fan controller leds to red later on and maybe paint the case with the same theme....not sure yet.

Aside from the looks the new Delta Fans, the H100 and the Accelero Twin Turbo do a great job with cooling. I ran Prime 95 with the cpu OC @ 4.2Ghz, Mem @ 1401Mhz, with temps from 23c idle to 60c full load. Gota say I can't complain(let me know if its ok for ya) and the 6990 from 48c idle to 77c full load core @900Mhz and mem @ 1295Mhz. All fans at lowest speed. Will try with fans @ top speed later on.

Is it that ugly that no one says anything....? redface.gif

Hey guys, this is my first post here. I have read the whole thread over the last few days, and I must say, I am glad I got this case. I found this thread after I had already received the 650 and Corsair 750 gold power supply. There are some great builds on here and the pictures and ideas have helped me tremendously. I wanted to have a build done by the launch of D3, but I have to pay the bills, ya know how that goes!

My question is about a dual fan setup on the CPU cooler. I like the dual 92mm fan noctua cooler, but both fans have 3 pin connectors, and of course the motherboard is a 4 pin. If I get a dual 3 pin to single 4 pin splitter(is that possible?), will the motherboard still be able to run the fans? Or does the fan have to have 4 wires to it to run in PWM? I plan on using the fan controller on the case for the stock case fans for now. I have read all the posts about the stock fans being loud and not optimal, but I will change those out as I go along. I need to get the rest of my stuff to build before I burn my poor laptop up!

No, you can still connect a 3 pin to a 4 pin. You'll see when you look at your motherboard that there is only one way to connect the 3 pin to the 4 pin connector so there is no chance of messing it up. Any of those Noctua dual-fan CPU coolers comes with the adapter for that so no need to worry!

I currently use a Gelid PWM Y-Splitter : http://www.gelidsolutions.com/products/index.php?lid=2&cid=11&id=31

Both 3 and 4 pin fans work and they run off of my 4 pin motherboard header just fine.

In order for the motherboard to control the fan speeds automatically from the cpu fan headers, the fans will have to be 4 pin pwm fans. The 3 pin fans will run at full speed on these headers.

Oh yeah, I forgot. Welcome. biggrin.gif

I was thinking I read the fan had to be 4 pin with 4 wires to be speed controlled by the motherboard. But, if there was an adapter, like the one in the link, would they be seen as PWM because of the 4 pin end on the adapter? I will probably just get the Cooler Master Hyper 212, which has a 4 pin fan. The thing is, I dont want to have to take it off for something else later. I really like the noctua fans, I think they are a quality product, but they are not a necessity. I could get an extra fan for the hyper 212 and have a push pull going on.

I was looking at the case and noticed that if a CPU cooler like the CM hyper 212 is there, it is almost right in line with the rear exhaust fan. It seems to me that would be a decent flow pattern: the 200 mm fan on the front bringing in air, the CPU cooler shooting air towards the rear, being caught by the exhaust fan. The 200 mm up top would be pulling out additional air.

This being my first build, I am trying to learn as much as possible about everything, and probably overthinking some things, but I get like that sometimes. I have had the case out of the box several times looking at it and trying to plan on how things are going to go. It is a beautiful case! I will just have to keep my cats away from it, as my oldest cat loves to lay beside my laptop on the vent side and let the hot air hit her!

Thanks for the help.
