I have about 3-5mm from the towers. As a precaution, I pushed the fans down a bit so if the gpu pcb hits the fan, it'll hit the plastic fan housing. Only one module on the back of the 6970 lightning protrudes a bit and it sits right below the third and rear fan so I pushed so it barely kisses it and again the plastic house shouldn't be an issue.

Also, picked up a preowned Seasonic 1250w psu biggrin.gif
edit: samsung ram was not issue at all thumb.gif

Yay! Simple OP update for now. Will do a full update with your specs later tonight. thumb.gif

I'm flipping coins over an SA-Extreme and a K2 seeing as a Phanteks probably won't go in my case by couple of mm.
I definitely won't get the front 140mm over my ram, but that's not a problem if I can simply put it at the back.
Much appreciated! smile.gif
EDIT: Disregard! I'm gonna save the fuss and just go with the K2.

I know it's too late but 30 seconds on Google and here's your answer. thumb.gif

It's a bit difficult to paint the TY fans. Here's a helpful post I found awhile back on how to do it.

redface.gif im going to tape the blades. Too much damage and repair for my liking to disassemble biggrin.gif
post #2273 of 3848
Is what I did on my TY-140s. Should have used better paint as it scratches off very easily but oh well.
post #2274 of 3848
Wow, non of my painters blue tape will adhere to the housing or the blades confused.gif. And its not the cheap stuff either rolleyes.gif. Well, lets see what I will do then biggrin.gif.

Anybody can tell me whether Silver Arrow SB-E is able to hold 5GHz with about 1.5 v ?

It really comes down to your mb and cpu. I was able to hit 4.9 super easily with my new mb and cpu, my silver arrow (non sb-e) with three fans was keeping my cpu's cores ~60c at load.

I have seen ppl use air coolers on 5.0 cpus. Now, ask yourself if this is just for occasional runs/benchmarks or a 24/7 setup, ? If its the later, you'll be stressing your cpu a lot more and the possibility of killing is likely. If you chip can do 5.0 stable and you plan to keep that as your 24/7 setup, the SA SB-E will ok, but I would recommend to go with a custom water loop to get a slightly better temp under load.

Came better than I expected. Would have loved to kept the natural blue from the blades but painters tape was not sticking frown.gif. I like it, makes them look plain-jane but sometimes matte/satin is understated biggrin.gif



Should be completely dry by tonight and I'll have them mounted.

No air cooler can guarantee any specific OC/voltage. Like wermad said, if you're going for a 24/7 OC at 5Ghz a custom loop would perform better and help your chip live longer, lol.thumb.gif

Nice! Care to briefly share your process to paint them?

Just used Krylon satin black. I didn't want to use a primer as layers of primer and paint can weigh down a bit the blades. I don't want to loose performance just for looks redface.gif.

Nothing really special, a few light coats and 30 minutes of drying time per application. Then, one last layer of but go easy as it can start dripping. 2-4 hours for handling time and ~24hrs for complete drying time. Since my 3rd gpu arrived, I just assembled it and I did scratch the fresh paint a bit with the fan clips but nothing serious. I'll take more pics of the fans installed. Looks good, stealth good biggrin.giftongue.gifthumb.gifsmile.gif
