    I just wanted to add my PC into this discussion. That's a 2x120mm, 1x120mm, and a 200mm radiator. A total of 5x120mm fans and 2x200mm fans.

    Running a 3930k and a 7970.

    Looks pretty neat. Planning of perhaps doing something very similar with a 650D when I get to college, as I want a slightly smaller case than the Raven 01 in retrospect lol.
    As for my watercooling in the 600T, I just use a 360+240 rad (quick roof mod and front mod, lol)... It's almost terrifyingly easy, just requires patience. ouo;

    What fan controller is that? I can't read the brand name from the pictures :/
    Been thinking of getting one myself as the fan controller on my Stryker affects all fans connected to it simoustaneously, and I would like to adjust them individually.

    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.0GHz | Corsair H100 | ASUS GTX670 2GB DirectCU II | ASUS Sabertooth Z77 | 16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz

    OCZ ZT is a completely modular powersupply series of pretty decent quality. Cheap too.

    I used to have one. However, I'd suggest you read the original (first) post of this thread, specifically point 3:

    • This thread is not intended as a "fast question - fast answer" thread; if you want to know what kind of computer + peripherals you can get with a given budget, ask in the "Computer Build / Upgrade Help" sub-forum. Creating a new thread there is greatly encouraged.

    I thought about that route but I have all my 5.25" bays filled (Dual bay res, BD/DVD burner, Fan Controller).

    I can't recommend buying this fan controller. The display doesn't work half the time. Either it will display nothing or it will display all zeros. The separate fan control lanes can only handle 1 fan at max speed. 2+ fans cause it to lose about 10-15% of the fans rated speed. Aqua Computer Aquaero 5 Pro will be my next buy.

    I find all those LCD-based fan controllers a bit...well, delicate and gimmicky. Who knows what could happen if the LCD goes nuts.
    The the volume-knob style controllers make the most sense to me, they have a much better "feel" and you can change individual fan speeds without even looking at it, no fumbling with buttons/displays.

    Like the Lian-Li one:


    Temperature monitoring should be done from the desktop IMO, seems a bit silly to have to look at the front of your PC for temp readings.

    Fan controller in bottom slot, and unless it's a really special one it'd sit in front of a 240 rad just fine. But that's me. I personally don't use a lick of 5.25" bay... Planning to maybe do so in the 650D.

    Well the Scythe Kaze has the knobs so it works regardless if the screen isn't working. The temp gauges on the controller monitor air and water temps. I monitor the hardware temps from the desktop.


    That's what I love about computers, everyone can customize it to however fits them the best.

    Personally I would go with a Lamptron FC5v2 or FC6 if I were to get a proper fan controller.
