You bought a new case for $475? Or did you buy all the W/C stuff too? o_0


BEFORE YOU LOOK AT THESE PICTURES, KNOW THAT THEY WERE TAKEN BY ASPIRE.COMPTECH

These are high res photos taken by aspire.comptech, 56k beware clicking these links.
This is what I'm going for when mounting the radiator on the back.

I'm basically going to take a fan similar to this

And gut all the stuff out of it except the frame. It needs to have the "OPEN" screw holes thing, unlike the tube around this one

^^This is the stock aurora 570 fan, it would not work, it has that tube shape that I can't have. It needs to be open.
I'm going to be using my stock xion case fans from my first case.
(once again pics taken by aspire)

From my understanding I just screw the fan frame onto the back of the radiator on one side, and then screw it to the case on the other. And it holds up the radiator nicley. Thats from my understanding so far, please correct me if I am wrong aspire.

No the case, plus all the fans, plus fan controllers, plus res adapters, plus fan grills comes out to 475. The case itself is only 360, but im buying 12 yate loons, 2 fan controllers and some other accessories.

4.99 per yate. I went ahead and got the 88CFM's because they'll be on a fan controller anyway.

I don't know if Mountain Mods sells the good yates. As far as I know, Petras is the only company that sells the good ones. And yes there are good ones and bad ones.

See this thread on XS for details.

The thing is you can't tell by the fan itself.

It's just that Petras buys direct from Yate Loon and every other company buys from a distributer.
