Maybe add a stencel or something like that too the mid plate, so you remove 60% or so of the white in it.

That way so dont you have to get quite as fast fans and so get a more quiet build.

So I'm a new at the whole water cooling thing. Are you going by TDP or watts pulled from the PSU?

Guess it doesnt matter much, my 3770k and 2 980 tis would only pull around 650watts(according to calculators)

Ill have 7 fan spaces with a 360 and 480.

And I may never go SLI. So I think I'm solid.

Didn't you mean a high static pressure fan? biggrin.gif You can have the fastest fan in the world and it will not perform as well as a fan designed for radiators.

And that would be a high static pressure fan designed for rads...

Sorry, I don't quite understand engineering, 100 Watts? headscratch.gif

I guess I have a lot to learn! evo.gif

Higher RPM usually means higher static pressure. At least that seems to be the case for most fans, but guess it depend on the design of the fan.


I know that most people say 1 fan space per component, but a 100 watt GPU needs less cooling then a 200 watt GPU.
Which is why I'm starting to recommend watt per fan space, instead of component per fan space.

As someone who's both worked in the industry AND had been sponsored, I will tell you this: do NOT go for sponsorship on your first build. I don't care if you have the next best thing since Murderbox, don't even try. You will come off as a moocher no matter how good your build is. No reputable hardware company will shove hundreds of dollars of gear to you.

You have to prove your worth by building great rigs with your own money first before ever trying for a sponsorship.

Sponsorship is a two way road and its never "for you." You have to have great time, dedication, passion, and a portfolio to even be considered, and even then, it's not guaranteed. You have to provide an advertising avenue for the company(ies) that are sponsoring you, make it worth the cost to them.

If you look at guys like Bill Owen, Charles Harwood, Richard Surroz, Brad Stuart, Rod and Bob of BS Mods, Daniel Harper, and other modders... There's a reason WHY they get sponsors. They've spent thousands, even tens of thousands on their builds over the years. They're reputable, they show improved results over time, and they're ALWAYS looking to do very versatile things.

So until your willing to spend the money, time, and effort, don't bank on getting sponsored. Nobody "deserves" a sponsorship. I oils probably outdrive many race car drivers, but I've never done it myself and would never ask a company to give me a car without showing I'm capable.

Just a friendly 2 cents.
I didn't think about that. i dont have any work to present, no cool mods to show off, but hey, I would rather try and fail than mot try and always wonder what would've happened if I did ask. Worst case scenario, they say no, best case scenario, 2x Titan X's. coolsmiley02.gif

Yes, I don't plan on asking them for anything until the build is completely done with the exception of the GPUs. If I can show them the painjob I have in mind, the plumbing and special work, maybe they will notice.

At least thats the way it normally works.
Good to know.

It also depends of fan RPM, if someone wants to run fans only at 500 RPM then it may be 3 fan spaces per component

500 RPM is waisted, as that is barly better then passive. Most people wont hear a 1000-1500 RPM fan, as long as it got good quality. That way so do you also get some cooling going.

My post said 1 fan space per component, PLUS 1 fan space extra...

Just to be clear... thumb.gif
