    Re: Quick fan check...

    what happens when you find a leak a few months down the line (happens to us all at some stage)

    what happens when a component fails or you have to start pulling things out as it stops posting one day (another thing thats happened to me )

    then there is the upgrade that you decide to get and you cant quite wiggle the soundcard out to pop the new one in (yeh i have done that as well )

    what happens when you decide that your going to give that new water block a spin to see if you can shave a degree off the cpu (been there, didnt drop a degree dammit)

    and of course changing the fluid as its been in a couple of years and has gone a bit murky

    there are quite a lot of reasons, and trust me you will find one once you swap to water cooling

    all i have at the low points is a 5 way koolance block that came with a temp probe, there is just enough room to pull it free of the case so it can drain into a bowl

    i do admire you going res less but it will be a bitch to get the bubbes out you know ! i ended up with res tops to get round that one

    Yup, I know. I just can find anywhere in the case to fit a res. Wait 'til you see the mod pics. I think the admiration will turn into pity, then fear over my mounting insanity

    So you reckon I'll be OK with something tagged on the bottom of the graphics block then? I was planning to go in and out the top of the lower graphics card, so just adding a bit of extra tube to a drain valve from one of the bottom holes should be no issue at all...! I'll posit that question in the build log tomorrow anyway, see if I can garner a few extra opinions

    Re: Quick fan check...

    Not the cheapest of fans but I can fully sugest the Apache for a high quality 120mm pwm fan
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/120mm...n-OEM-Fan-Only
    They are actually made by Scythe they use the same very good bareing as the S-Flow series and the same high density plastic.
    Or the Viper fan, same fan just a higher rpm (so more air flow) at full speed
    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/120mm...-mounting-pins

    However the AC fan GoNz0 linked to looks very good for nearly half the price (and that mount up when you're buying multiple fans) + the ability to link them together means you may be able to drop the PWM adaptor from yoour list of components (The adaptor uses an aditional 4pin molex for power, so you may need to check how many of these fans you can safely chain on one header)

    Oh and I see the confusion with the rad size now.
    I don't know enough on that side of things.

    PS looking forward to the build log

    think out of the box

    no need to mount an internal res, ek mulitoption res strapped to the back using the mounts ek sell!

    A very good idea sir! According to my motherboard manual, all the fan headers on my motherboard can supply a maximum of 2.2A. According to Arctic Cooling's installation manual for the F12, the max current draw of an F12 is 0.7A. By my reckoning, 3 x 0.7 = 2.1 > 2.2! Good stuff

    The only real shame is that Aria don't stock the other WC bits and bobs that I need. Anyone used WaterCoolingUK before? While they're not exactly on the doorstep, they are close enough that I could go and pick stuff up if I ordered it tomorrow morning...
