I am using Scythe KM03-BK Fan controller and I want to control 3 of the magma fan with one channel. I wonder whether it is possible since Magma each current is 0.34A and one channel support 1A which means I lack of 0.02A.

I have never tried hooking them all to one channel, but my thoughts are that the Scythe can probably handle it, their controllers are made very well; also 0.02A is pretty minimal... You could always give it a shot... I would think those numbers are taken with the fans at full speed. I leave my Magmas at 1200RPM most of the time.

I realise only 4 short screws are used to attached the rx360 to the HAF X, is it able to hold or do i need to do extra sercuring by using double sided tape or blu tack?

The 4 screws seem to work very well. I don't think anything additional is necessary.

I realize I do have the same problem as you when fitting in the radiator, ram must be in first. Is the turbulence fan which comes with the ram necessary? Because there is no way I could fit that in.

Specs:
CPU: i7 950 (@ 4.2Ghz 1.344V-Load HT-On)
Motherboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD3R
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 12gb (3x4gb) PC-12800
GPU: Powercolor HD5870 LCS (EK waterblock & backplate pre-installed)
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W
HDD: 2x250GB Hitachi @ RAID-0, 1x750GB Samsung
DVD: NEC DVD Combo/Multi
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Cooling:
XSPC RX360 Radiator
3x Enermax Magma 120mm fans
Swiftech MCP350 Pump
XSPC 5.25" Bay reservoir/pump top (previously used their pump top alone which was great)
XSPC RASA CPU block
Arctic Cooling MX-2 TIM
PC ICE Coolant - Blood Red
Scythe Kaze Master Pro Fan controller/Temp monitor

I will make notes on certain things below individual pictures.

1071289medium.jpg
^Here we start by removing the side and top panels. I opted to use 2 200mm fans up top (stock only having one). I purchased one that has red LED's so I swapped that with the side panel one, the one that was originally on side panel can be seen on the top here. They sure as heck didn't make it easy to close the top with the 2nd fan installed however...

1071291medium.jpg
^Quick view of the inside of case before adding components... Nice black finish.

1071300medium.jpg
^Trying to figure out front 5.25 device placement... This arrangement did not work, more on that later.

1071318medium.jpg
^I sleeved all cables that weren't sleeved already. So I sleeved LOTS of things, though besides a inch or two here or there, most are hidden behind the side of the case, go figure.

1071331medium.jpg
^Fast forward a little bit and we have the motherboard and radiator installed. Next few pics are detailing those.

1071332medium.jpg
^The RX360 is LARGE. Rev2 spec is deeper than the original model. Beware of this.

1071335medium.jpg

1071340medium.jpg
^Here is why the front 5.25 arrangement isn't going to work. The radiator is TOO close to the fan controller to access its back panel connections... also, after installing fans onto the radiator, getting the tubes out of the reservoir would not be possible.

1071343medium.jpg
^RX360 quite close to the heatsink over the cpu power stages.

1071353medium.jpg
^First Enermax Magma installed... Tight... it presses against the heatsink.

1071356medium.jpg
^All 3 installed, however not without problem... see next photo.

1071355medium.jpg
^Installing RAM was a challenge as there is clearly not enough room below the fans... I managed to do it, somehow; although, it was NOT easy. Good thing none of the ram was bad, cause I'd have to remove those fans to get it out!

1071358medium.jpg
^Fast forward again, we have tubing/coolant installed and are testing the loop for leaks.

1091383medium.jpg
^Fast forward... All installed. Next few photos of finished product.

1091389medium.jpg

1091395medium.jpg

1091380medium.jpg

1091406medium.jpg

1091444medium.jpg

1091436medium.jpg
^Temp monitor is awesome. Bothered me a tad that the read-out was blue, but its a vacuum fluorescent display that is very clear and easy on the eyes. Controls 6 fans and reads 6 temps, with alarm function and etc. I hooked up 6 fans to it, and 6 temp probes, it works great!

1091441medium.jpg
^Red 200mm fan installed in side panel.

All in all, great system. It's my quietest PC yet even with the fans at full tilt. Those Enermax Magma ball bearing fans are dead silent, only thing you hear is the some air moving (bought these as the Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM model was out of stock everywhere).

Pump is the 350 model and very quiet.

The XSPC Rasa, RX360, and DDC Pumptop/Res is awesome. Very happy with the quality of all of those items.

I've used the X58A-UD3R in a previous build for a friend and it was a great board, Giga-Byte is always my first choice, been in every one of my own personal builds for a long time.

G.Skill ram was also used in friend's build and find it to be great ram and good price, one of the few I can find that runs at 1.5v at 1600 speed.

Very pleased with how it all turned out... Any questions, please feel free to ask!
I recently bought Haf X nvidia edition i want to make it water cooler. please help thanks
earliest action in this regards will be highly appreciable.
