I think I'm probably the only one here who likes the contrast of black interior and Noctua fans.

They don't look as funny/out of place as the GT640 huh,,,lol.

I like em, they have a cool contrast. kinda retro tech.

i still cant get my core temps as low as they were when the h80i was blowing into the case. But when all the fans are maxed out i get close.

It was not hard at all. I got most of it done in an afternoon but have been changing and trying different things (fans and RAM) for the past week.

Default Re: New build, need some input. >Remodel<

Did a little remodel to this build.

Got rid of the H80i and added:
Monsta 120 & XSPC RX120 rads
Monsoon series 2 resevoir
swiftech MCP655 PWM pump
swiftech Apogee HD block

so far stable and cool at 4800
