Newly transplanted (and improved/added to) from my In Win 901 smile.gif. May I join the club now?

I only made 3 modifications to the actual case, I painted the inside flat black (picture of that mod here) and also my radiators to match. I also removed the bottom "lip" in order to slide in my 180mm SIlverstone fan. Kinda wish I had done the BEFORE I painted, because I'm certainly not taking everything apart again to redo that part, lol, but it's not really visible anyway. I also removed and tinted the window with 5% automotive tint, Thinking about going to a bit less dark of a tint.

Oh, and it's actually a GTX 970, not 670. I reused my water block since it still fit, no need to buy a new one.











Edit: This is the Rosewill U2, not the Jonsbo or Cooltek

Those insides look pretty sleek! Good job on that thumb.gif

I'm not sure whether the 200mm fan at the bottom really gets enough air, though.

EDIT: I just noticed the fan is 180mm in diameter, not 200.

looks like it sets on its side so the fan isn't obstructed from the "bottom". edit: never mind, avatar is resized

It does have feet, the case is designed to intake air from the bottom. That's also where the hard drive mounts are, but I wanted cooling instead, so I went with the M.2 drive.



With the fan being such a tight fit under the GPU, I know it's not getting full airflow, but with it being an AP fan, it actually does a very good job. I figure the AP fan gets just as good (or better) airflow even half blocked than a thin 180mm fan. And besides that, IMO it just looks awesome, the way it swirls out from the middle of the GPU. In person it basically looks like that fan grill IS the floor of the case.

I'm happy with the temps anyway. It Idles in the low 30s with the pump running and the radiator fans turned off, just the AP running on low. On full load it maxes in the mid to high 50s. GPU is overclocked to 1.5Ghz and CPU (i5 4690k) to 4.6Ghz. I will be adding a second DC-LT pump as well, I already have an extra (extracted from a Cooler Master Eisberg Solo) just waiting on the pump top, that way I can run the pumps on lower speed (quiet) and get better flow/temps.

Also... I don't know why the avatar looks like that... I shall attempt to fix it.

Nice build! What are the slim fans on the rad?

The 120 rad has a Prolimatech slim 120mm fan, and on the 240 rad there are the two Silverstone slim 120mm fans that came with the Raven RVZ01.

I'm actually replacing all of them with Silverstone FN123 fans. They are similar to the ones on my rad now. I'm sure they are the same fans, just a different color and higher RPM. The Silverstones are much quieter than the Prolimatech, at literally all speeds. Even at the full 1500 rpms they are quieter than the Prolimatech at it's lowest speed (which is just under 800 RPM I believe). Now on full power at 2000 RPM I'm sure the FN123s will be much louder then the current ones, but probably still quieter than the Prolimatech. They also are more designed for static pressure as well, so better for a radiator.

Looking for the ECS A78F2-TI Tine Mini-ITX For FM2+ motherboard. its a Thin-ITX with FM2+ so I could use a 7850K in a tiny package.

thinking along these lines now. forget Antec ISK110 and looking at Thin-ITX mobo for even smaller footprint. like the Silverstone PT13 though again I would have to swap out the USB 2 for USB 3 female plugs.

PSU brick would be used, but having trouble finding this motherboard available online for purchase.

Good to know it isn't just for looks wink.gif Yeah I absolutely love the way it looks, too, you really did a great job there thumb.gif

Yea the Silverstone AP 182 is a monster fan!  I just got one for my Silverstone TJ08-E with its 6+ static air pressure at full load, its like a tornado inside the case and even better for a radiator.
