I don't have any eLoops, though I've witnessed them in person and thought they were really impressive. As it stands, I probably won't buy any fans for a while as I bought my local micro center out of stock when they got their last batch ever of GTs. So... I've got like 15 GTs sitting in my closet waiting for builds,lol.

Really interested in the new Varder fans too. So, especially @geggeg, if you've got data on eLoops/GT/Varder I'd be interested to see it.

Yesterday was really weird, I turned my PC on, but my fans attached to my Aqauaero weren't spinning at all. I looked at the curve controller I had set and sure enough, it was so cool in the room the curve controller hadn't even kicked in yet. Scared me for a second, lol. I lowered the start up to 21C and they kicked on without issue. Never had that happen before.

I can't link them here unfortunately. GTs are going to be added soon. AP15 was ever so slightly better than my Vardar F3-120 while the Vardar F4-120 was ever so slightly better than the AP45 from an airflow to noise ratio. Nothing between the two really. I am not a fan (heh) of the noise the GTs make, especially when undervolted. The NB-eLoops are a bit behind in numbers but do make a sweet sound, especially when the airflow noise itself isn't much.

Understood. I can't even hear my GTs because of that damned DDC1T pump. Thing is way too noisy and I plan on replacing it with a PWM version soon.

Alright, so I called CL, reached KC and he sorted everything out with my order. Go CL thumb.gif

I ordered the pedestal with 2x 3x120 mounts, as well as swapped the top 2x 3x120 mount for a 2x 2x120. Also removed the flex bay rad mount, as with the dual socket tray that's not going to work out as I intended smile.gif

Final config: 2x 240x60s in the top, 1x 240x30 in the front window, 1x 360x84 in the side mount, 2x 360x60s in the pedestal

Life is good. Any input on my Q above? Thanks!

I think you should make sure the 1x360x84 in the side mount does nort interfere with the front I/O

Oh no ... is the depth the potential issue or just having a 3x120 there to begin with? I could put the monsta in the pedestal and a 60 (54? Coolgate g2) in the side if that makes a difference

My case has the IO and power/reset panel

I can't be the first person making these mistakes biggrin.gif

The depth is thre issue, I have read some persons had problems putting some rads in the side mount.

Speaking from experience, as I have an S8 as well. The 84mm will absolutely not fit in the side mount. I have the Power and I/O as well, and it just won't fit. However, you can use a 54mm rad with one set of fans in push (next to the chassis door). I'm using a HWLabs GTX 360 in the side mount. It's a 54mm rad, and then one set of fans. This alone is pushing against the front panel connections.

Like Kayan, I had a 63mm thick rad side mounted with fans in push and it did fit. I had to have the ports of the rad pointing the rear of the case.





A Monsta won't fit. wink.gif
