The silverstone ap are decent radiator fans, and the 180mm ones, by the blade shape, look like they do more static pressure than the 120mms which don't do alot of static pressure. I wouldn't worry too much about it. I just generally don't worry too much about radiator fans, I just want good quiet fans that don't make a humming noise when turned down. The performance difference is so small that you shouldn't worry about the specs(well I believe, not sure if that's true, but from what I have seen the difference is pretty small). That's if you use a radiator designed for quiet fans. Plus, they are 180mm it's really hard to come by good 180mms fans.
I'll be testing the difference between my gelid wings or my silverstone ap121s on my RX240 when it arrives, to see if it's worth getting 1 more ap121 or getting 2 gelid wings(already have one unused ap121). Just by the shape of the blades it seems that using the ap121 for pulling air out of the radiator would be a bad idea. I also have to cut some holes plus a cutout for the radiator. I can't wait for the new nvidia gpus so that I can add a GPU block.

Yeah, I really want a ncube tbalancer or something similar that will let you control your fan speeds automaticly using temperature sensors, but they're expensive and I don't even think I have the space to make it look tidy in my case.
I'm rocking an Asus G73SW-A1.
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 1.5GB
HDD: 500GB 7200RPM
1920x1080 FHD screen, 17.3 inches.
When I ordered it I took out the 2nd 500GB HDD that comes with it, cause I don't need 1 TB of space, and I plan to put a Crucial M4 128GB SSD in it, and run most of my shit off of that, which should be a fun upgrade. I already have 2-6 second load times in WoW depending on the area I'm loading, of course, so I'm extremely excited to see it with an SSD.
I got it as a replacement for my desktop, which I still have, but I am "loaning" to my sister for her use, because it's still 10x better than the piece of shit HP laptop she's got. Someday I'll be using a desktop for gaming again, soon as I get a better job and some money, but this laptop is extremely fast and wonderful for gaming. I have a couple extra monitors, so the screen size isn't an issue (and 17.3 inches isn't that bad, either), so with an external keyboard and my Logitech G700, there's really no difference from a desktop (aside from being 5x faster than my desktop), which I'm very happy with.

Thinking of doing a complete overhaul of my rig in May, was interested in getting some opinions on this setup.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16811998091 Scythe Kaze Q12 fan controller, still deciding on what kind of fans I want to throw in the new case.
I am keeping my optical drives and my CPU plus the cooler, everything else I am going to sell, odds are I can still snag 700 bucks for what's left of my system on Kijiji. Since I got my work contract this past week and I am going to be doing my taxes in a couple of weeks, I will probably drop some money on a much nicer rig, but I am still going to keep my i7 2600k and the Corsair H80.

Oh yeah, and the screws I'm looking for? They aren't M3 or M4. Neither are the right size. Apparently it's UCN-something-something. -.-
The case looks good, if you like it don't worry about it. It's personal preference and from what I have seen it's a good case.

It wasn't rebranded, but spot on besides that.
