I think those Bit Fenix fans make a great accent fan. Especially when they match the color scheme. For me, I ended up making the rest of my build try to match my rear exhaust fan, might be arse backwards on that one. tongue.gif

Okay so I went ahead and did some adjusting on my Mercury S3. The original setup foir those that do not know was using a Water 2.0 Extreme in the front with 4 fans set as push/pull intake, dual Fractal R2 140mm fans in the top as intake and a single Fractal 140 in the rear as exhaust. The system is an i7 4770 with a 290 Vapor-X.

With summer here and the house temps running into the mid 80s I was curious about how we could tweak the build to get better cooling for the video, was getting to around 78C in the heat of the day.

The idea I came up with was to try using the dual 1400 mm flex bay and putting the CPU cooler down to a Water 3.0 Performer with a single exhaust fan. Since I am not overclocking the CPU I did not see the need for the bigger cooler.

So out came the fold flex bay and a set of R2 140mm fans where added to the front along with the two on top. The cooler was attached to the rear with a single fan pulling air out as an exhaust.

HOLY AIR FLOW BATMAN!

The exhaust end of the case at the fan exhaust and other grilled areas feels like a box fan, air is flowing easily out of the system. I did gain 4C on the CPU temp but the motherboard temp dropped by 6C and the 290 is topping out at 71C with the room temp at 85F. Oh did I mention you cannot hear the system unless there is NO other noise of any kind in the house and even then it is very quiet.

I know when people think of Caselabs they think water cooling and rightly so. But for an air cooling build these cases are BEASTS!!!!! I just need to make some custom cabling for my PSU so the cable management is better but otherwise this build is about perfect!!!!

Thank you Caselabs for an amazing case!!!!!

Holding off as long as we can on the AC. Our electric last month was $75 and that is with three gaming rigs running in the house thumb.gif

Wow, insanely hot. I keep my room at 19-20c (66-68f). Then again I live in government housing and dont have a bill to day. I love the S8 for air flow
