Got my first GPU and PSU in on Thursday:













I am very impressed with the build quality of the Aorus Waterforce WB. It looks much better in person than in pictures! And what a monster power cord on the EVGA psu, 12 AWG! I might need to install a 240V circuit in my office and put a twist lock plug on the end smile.gif

I also got the Noctua Industrial fans in on Saturday and did some testing:










I decided to go with the 3000 and order 6 more. I'll return the 2000 I bought to test. The 3000 can PWM down to 280 rpm! They are silent to me below 1300 or so. No problems starting them at low rpm either. It sure was a pain to get the fan shroud / fans / radiator all assembled. The screws that came with the rad are too long (not sure what they'd even be used for?) so I'll order some M4 30mm screws.
Unfortunately I dropped the rad and nicked one of the tubes when I was test fitting it in the case. I filled it with water and it doesn't leak. It still could once pressurized, so I'll set it up in a test loop when I get my pump/res and let it run for a day at full power to make sure it's still good.
