What do you mean? My PSU or how they are hooked up?

These fans come with molex connectors. So I cut them all off and put on 3 pins and sleeved them all. On the back they are all just on a bridge.

Although these fans are not rated too well, they are actually very quiet and move a ton of air. I haven't experienced any whining yet. I think they might only do that if they are speed controlled.

I am actually using FluidXP+ EXT Blood Red. Before it was the Nano that destroyed all of my tubes and left deposits through out the system.

This stuff is actually very good. My hoses are still crystal clear and I get really good temps.

Thanks!

With this build, it was really just for fun. Especially the last part where I ran my tubing behind the case. I am very happy with it right now.

Yeah, you can't get over that unless you do a couple of things.

1) Have over 8Gb of memory
2) Cut off pagefile.sys
3) Cut off hibernation
4) 2 SSDs in RAID 0

Basically everything is dumped right into memory. It really does speed up SSDs quite a bit. But the side effects might not be worth it to you. No hibernation! and No Pagefile to capture things on the fly (unsaved files). But..I like it

I was wondering about how they were hooked up. I've been trying to mess around with a fan controller to no real benefit, so I think I'll try your way. Thanks for the reply! This is really my favorite kind of post. +Rep!

Wow! I haven't been around in a while!

Just wanted to do a heads up...

This coming weekend I am going to do a complete tear down and rebuild. Just to clean the system out. It has been running constantly for 5 months now. Only has been off maybe two days total.

I haven't had any leaks or any major problems. But, the fans that I was warned about, came true. They are getting a little 'whiney' I guess and 2 have started to bind up a bit. So with the tear down, I am looking at replacing all the fans.

Any suggestions on fans that will be quiet but still look fairly good with my setup?

[Decently Large Update] (view the entire build on the 1st page)

First of all..the thermaltake fans were dying out after only 6 months. Whining and starting really slow. So it's time for something else.

I went with the shark (red) 140mm and 120mm.

fans1k.jpg
fans2.jpg

Immediately I can feel a difference in air flow! But also noise (something I will look at in a bit)

Next I was either going to put a voltage regulator block or something else..I went with something else.

Memory stripped..
mem1z.jpg
New Bitspower blocks on..
mem2s.jpg
Memory back in..
mem3r.jpg

Now next was the push. I have been wanting to put my D5 in and change the flow. So all in one push here's the new pump, loop, fans, memory block, and LED changes..

pumpmem.jpg

As you can see..The pump is out of the bottom (with a quick LED mod), LEDs behind the resi, and the memory block is in (and crooked..lol). Yes Yes I know, a memory block is just vanity but hey..whatever lol

Next was just filling and leak testing..5 hours, no leaks, and crazy flow!! I really like my prior pump for being so quiet but the D5 is a workhorse!

fillug.jpg

Next is the back. Just a quick tidy up and you can see how the back tubing is way less and very simple (still with drain and fill tubes).

backqt.jpg

I was still leak testing in this pic so somethings were still out of place (24 pin jumper, pump wires, and fan controller). Also, don't forget that this a working mans computer. Even though I sleeved most of everything, this is about as tidy as it's ever going to get back there wink.gif

So a fairly complete inside, but I really wanted to work on this door..

window1q.jpg

Need airflow through the HD cage. Also, it pulls so much from the bottom that no air moves into the top of the case. So here's the fix..

window2.jpg

window3.jpg

I am going to duplicate it on the back also. I think it really adds something to the side (especially with these fans).

So for the fans..

The top 3 are on 12 volts (can barely hear them)
The side 2 and rear are on 7 volts (whisper quiet)
The bottom 140mm is on 12 for maximum flow (can't really hear it)

The entire case is a tad louder but way better.

PS> With reversing the loop to push up, temps have decreased by 1 degree to +1C vs +2C and any temp spikes fall extremely fast.

And YES, I know I have all of the covers off (lol). I always mean to put them back and never do..

lastdk.jpg

Upcoming mods:

Finally finish the stealth drive (make it look good anyway, been working awesome so far)
Find a way to light my resi so it's just clean looking (too bright now)
Put a panel over the lower compartment (at the door)

I don't think that I will ever make it a dual loop tho. I don't need another GPU and I am getting perfect temps now.

After running for a while (3 hours with WMC playing netflix on the 47", photoshop resizing pics and basic browsing on the 22"..

temp1m.jpg
temp2x.jpg

~ +1C on thermal and CPU
The GPU is normally 33C and is now 31C
My core temps are 29C with CPU at 4.00 Ghz

I am going to tweak my flow a bit and see what I can get the noise down to later. But it's really not that loud.

I will be wrapping up this build soon. This case sits in a room adjacent to my bedroom and office and runs 2 tvs and my monitor through hdmi panels (That's why I never really care about the noise.

Next I am building a HTPC for the living room. I like using my Apple TV to stream movies and tv shows using XBMC for ATV2 but it just can't push some of my 1080p content so well (mostly does perfect tho)...except HULU Plus! lol

Next up is going to be called "Black Out Theater"..A totally blacked out HTPC that's whisper quiet and crazy small! PS> YES it will be water cooled!

Sent me some suggestions on how to light my resi that will make it look 'right'. Everytime I try with either cathodes or LEDs it just looks washed out super bright.
