My case is also silenced with dampening mats but despite all these measures I can still "hear" my PC when gaming, mainly the corsair fans they have a sound of a diesel engine and the pump has several noises.

In other words use quality fans that are quiet and push good amount of air on low speed as well as rubber feet (if you go with an EK top/res you get included rubber mount). Different top/res has different noises, I had an old EK D5 top/res and it was pretty quiet, this alphacool I have now have some noise that is impossible to get rid of despite being mounted with rubber feet, I think the sound resonates in the tank or something, it gets even worse when the water level is above 2/3 in the tank. Manufacturers definatley need some RND in the noise department because this alphacool is just a joke.
What about this? https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...nal-laing.html

With that said it is a BIG part and should one get it make sure you study all the diagrams on EK's site since it needs its space...I got creative to mount it in my case (Cosmos 2 modded) so that it does not restrict airflow.

I had to raise its "feet" so I that it was at the center of the big fan (dead zone) and also have space to install a drain valve....anyway this is not finishes yet and I will change things soon to hard tubes, illuminated floor, some plexi / aluminium cover pieces, sleeved cables and other....

The way it is mounted does not cause any vibrations (running @ 50% both pumps) since the holder brackets have rubber inside holding the pumps. I am very satisfied so far after 8 months of use.
Nice buid!

Do you think shoggy is pintless in your case?

I guess it's not an issue if you don't care about the looks, but I would go with a 360 GTS. Maybe send a mail to your shop and ask them when they will receive new stock?
So is thickness more relevant with respect to aesthetics than with VRM cooling?

It is the goal. I really wanted dual top with dual pump in serie, but I don't find a case that is no nosense spacous enough. It'd be the PC-V3k, but it seems Lian Li is discontnuning it.

Come on man.
Man, i am going with Meshify S2 with no TG panel! I give up internal aesthetics. My initial plan yes it was based with really extreme with luxourious etc. But because my bitcoins have had a dump and the parts is always out of stock, I decided to go with something frugal. But mainly because soft ones do not transmit vibrations.

One thing I don’t see that you might need is a Hubby7. You’re going to want to hook up your Quadros via USB, along with the Aquaeros and anything else that requires USB. So you’ll need to expand your USB ports.
aquero 6 has the connector, does it not have that?
