    Missed out on some good-looking rigs in here as of late. Sabertooth is still running a-okay, in fact I've picked up some modded extension power cables and some additional tubing to get the water back on Ivy.

    I'll pick up the HX cables sometime next week, I think.

    Anyway, I'm a little behind - you putting together a new system, Steve?

    Can I suggest something?

    For your cpu cooler fans : http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...tl=g36c365s936

    Those are the ones I wanted in the very beginning along with some light blue liquid, but after reading about clogging and so on,I tried finding light blue tubing,but couldn't, I still thing they look amazing, and would match your blue rig,blue motherboard very well.

    Secondly, I notice you spend allot of time on making sure dust doesn't get into your system, I recently came across some one side foam strips,and placed it all around the inside of my side panel corners and on the bottom of my rads, it not only seals those tiny openings from dust, but works great as sound dampers. And on the rads it works well as vibration absorbers aswel,so it's kinda a 3 in one deal. So I cut 4 pieces and stuck it onto an fan filter,now the filter is sealed of from all sides,and it noticeably reduced noise. So I know everyone has there own methods,but I'd like to share the pics of what I used,it worked great,And I can definitely recommend this foam strips, I got it from a local hardware store and it was really cheap,they have allot of different sizes, and it proved to work great on my rig.

    Anyway it's just a suggestion,and hope it helped any on the forum who work hard on those super silent dust free rigs

    The first pic is the strips itself, second pic is the dust guard with the foam seal on,last pic is the new dust filter on my rig,but the flash made it look allot brighter,but you can still see what it looks like.

    Yes, I probably am. Just trying to find the right parts. I pretty much have it in my mind, except for the case. I was almost ready to pull the trrigger on an 800D. But, I took a serious look at it and realized, there is no airflow and almost no way to make any. just google 800d air flow problem. So, as of this moment I am undecided. The rest of the parts I know what I want. Or close enough to decide in an hour.

    Joey, that looks nice, kind of like weather stripping. How much static pressure on those fans? Cooler master makes a sickle flow 120MM fan that puts out 70CFM and 3mm/h20 static pressure, @19Dba which is the highest I've seen.

    Yeah it's high, but remember that when you put those in,at such high cfm,your gonna generate allot of noise via the rads. I don't want to sound rood, but sometimes the "best" isn't the right way, have a look at this review Review - What's the best 120mm case fan? | bit-tech.net, you don't need to read it all,just the page I linked to, you will see that for example the gentle typhoons doesn't have the best cfm,and looses allot against the other fans, but when compaired on a rad and you take the noise into concideration it wins hands down,so far that they recomend gentle typhoons on most review site when it comes to radiator fans. However,they are "old" and as far as I can tell corsair's latest fan range are the "new" gentle typhoons, but I checked some forums,and everyone is sticking to gentle typhoons, but again that may just be personal choice, what I do know is that the coolermaster sickleflow fans are very noisy when they go on a rad,or even when they are close to each other. If I may suggest,get gentle typhoons 1200rpm's with a fan controller, so you will be set with low rpm rads or mid-high ones. But seeing as you want that silent rig,I wont go for anything higher then the 1200 rpm range. But if you want different fans, the zalman shark fins are pretty good,they are a bit noisy if you dont control them, and have a look at corsairs latest batch of fans. But don't be to concerned about high cfm, it may just turn out to be a very noisy fan.

    Yes, I've read on several overclockers forums that CFM does not matter on a rad, it's how much static pressure it builds up inside the rad.

    Yup static is important, those noctua's aren't to bad as rad fans, maybe add them in the list of possible fans?
