Yes HAF XB could be really cool. I like the Bitfenix Prodigy but that doesn't really fit the military theme

B-Neg, what was your setup like with the fan controller? I ask because I've bought that one as well, but am now regretting it after seeing it's only 10W per channel and I've got 4 big 38mm guys on my rad.

 

How did you handle which fans went to which node and how limited were you by the power constraints?

 

Also just curious if you mind sharing what you'd charge for doing a system build like this, I've always considered the idea of getting a machine done by a pro like yourself and I think seeing this log sold me on the idea. Feel free to pm it if you want, or if it's private and you don't want to say, that's fine too.


When life hands you lemons, you shut up and eat your damn lemons.

Its fine,i normally charge £300 for a complete build,thats everything all in labourwise.
Paint,Sleeve work,plumbing and any fab work...the lot
You provide all parts and materials and a rough idea of what you want,obviously if you dont want the full whistle and bells then i dont charge that.
This one was for a good friend so it was done for pleasure more than anything else.
As for the controller...You could get away with 2 Kazes per channel,i chose to run 1 fan per channel and have the ram fan on a 7v step down on the mobo.

Hmmm, I've got these Panaflo fans which say the input wattage is 6.5W: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3142

 

If I never want to run them at full speed though, could I just link up two per channel to the Recon controller and have them be basically fine?

You sprayed the fans? With what exactly? Just regular spray paint? It's quite nice! I like that it is subtle, and very clean as well..

The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your
enemies and chase them before you, to rob
them of their wealth and see those dear
to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp
to your bosom their wives and daughters.
