Here is my most recent build:








It is a purpose built hackintosh that is going to run Adobe stuff exclusively.

-Gigabyte UD-3 Rev 2.0
-12 GB of 1600mhz Corsair dominator memory.
-CX 430 watt PSU that is holding up perfectly
-Core i7 920 @ 4.0 Ghz @ 1.28vcore
-Corsair H50 with a Noctua NFP12 on pull. This fan config yields excellent cooling and the least amount of noise due to the mount on the inside. Under load the CPU never goes beyond 76 degrees.
-It has a a GT120 Apple graphics card in it for maximum compatibility.
-Samsung F3 1TB disk for the OS.

It is extremely quiet and very fast . The build itself was super easy and a true joy. It felt like playing with lego's. Everything was very easy to assemble and the end result is super duper clean.

I am thinking of doing a couple of other builds with this case too.

Looks really good dude (loves me a nice clean build!), but those Noctuas are just , and they have awful static pressure for HSF / radiators.
Pick yourself up some Noiseblockers or Gentle Typhoons (if you can find them).

As for this case....I really really like it; strongly considering it if I go full ATX again
Can the LEDs on the 200mm fans be turned off via switch or something though?

Thanks a lot man will do that for the next build.

The difference between the noctua and the stock is a lot though, the stock kept it at 83, the noctua maxes out at 76.

Have not found a switch for the LED's. They are no obnoxious though and a nice white.

It is whisper quiet, love it!

Umm, no

Scythe - Gentle Typhoon (1,450)
Max RPM: 1450
Airflow: 85 m³/h
Static Pressure: 1.3 mm H2o
Noise: 21 dB

Noctua - NF-P12
Max RPM: 1300
Airflow: 92.3 m³/h
Static Pressure: 1.68 mm H2o
Noise: 19.8 dB

Noiseblocker - PL-2
Max RPM: 1400
Airflow: 96 m³/h
Static Pressure: 1.27 mm H2o
11 dB

These three models have similar RPMs. That is why I used them as examples.

Thanks for the info! So for the H50 the NFP12 is A-okay since it can build the most pressure?

You should be aware that those are just ratings; the only ones you should actually trust are those of the GentleTyphoon, since Nidec Servo makes them. Nidec Servo, being a company that caters to server environments more than people like us, NEED to rate their fans accurately or they will lose valuable customers.

Also note that you can't make a club official yourself; a section moderator has to do it, which would be any of these: pjlietz, prosser13, ira-k, catmmm, SmasherBasher. (prosser13 took care of my thread but he's not as active right now)

There are fans that have higher static pressure but they are not as quiet. I've had great results using NF-P12s in push/pull. You can also use a shroud between the pusher fan and the radiator to increase cooling efficiency.
