    Be Quiet! jumps into watercooling market with Silent Loop

    Does things in reverse for less turbulence, apparently.

    Re: Be Quiet! jumps into watercooling market with Silent Loop

    Finally! I'm a big fan of Be Quiet! I've got two of their fans, the old topflow cpu cooler and a gold rated 300w TFX psu running my current rig. I thought about buying one of the cases but my PC is currently housed in a lovely DIY cardboard box which I'm too proud of to disassemble haha.

    Re: Be Quiet! jumps into watercooling market with Silent Loop

    Are they going to be completely silent like the product name suggests or merely quiet?

    I think you forgot punctuation at the end of that sentence

    I wouldn't mind one of those to replace my corsair h105. I currently have a single be quiet 140cm fan for the exhaust and it is indeed silent !

    Here you go!

    The back panel is actually on the front below the filtered intake fan - by filtered I mean, I cut up some tights and stretched them across the fan.

    The exhaust is at the side which was difficult to do. I had to cut through two layers of cardboard instead of just one. I actually cut my thumb open on that part haha.

    And from above you can see how much internal space that cpu cooler takes up. This is actually my second cardboard box build with this rig. The first box (George Foreman grill box - the small one) had a whole side missing when I swapped from the stock cooler. Also, you can see the laptop hdd held to the side with a single screw.

    The only problem with the rig is the PSU getting noisy. It gets too hot compared to the rest of the components because it only gets second hand air. Ideally it should be on its side with the intake facing out of the box rather than up, but hey, this is a learning process.

    Also, I actually disconnected and took these photos especially for you!
