    I think he means the hose direction? I dont think it matters at all tbh, but i could be wrong.

    ya, hose direction, my bad. wasn't sure if i should put the hoses at the back or front of the case. everyone seems to put them towards the back.

    I do wish they would do away with brown PCBs already :/

    Have you tried routing the PCI-E cables to the GPU through the lower grommet? you'd see less of them, and because of the viewing angle the weave of the cable sleeving would make appear more opaque.

    They're the corsair fans right? I think I need to get some because I installed 5 Arctic F12s and my PC is quite loud, had to get a fan controller to turn them all down or off completely through the night.

    While fans do differ in noise levels depending on RPM, their differences are somewhat moot if you plug them directly into the PSU because they'll be blasting away at 12v. Even motherboard headers tend to default to max RPM or have shoddy voltage control.
    You made a good decision to buy a fan controller, especially one which allows you to turn fans off completely. Very handy!

    My own rig is is full of Corsair AF/SP fans but I still wouldn't run them at stock speeds despite them being the quiet editions...but then again, I have pretty crazy standards when it comes to what "quiet" means :S

    As ugly as the NZXT Sentry 2 is, I do love being able to turn the fans off.

    omg save that .0001 watts!

    It's all about the silence my friend, blissful peaceful silence.

    Plus if you have headphones plugged directly into the PC it can actually help reduce vibrations which travel up the cord. Probably unnoticeable but bleh :S

    I would expect you of all people to know that a full-tower case with 200mm~ fans at 40% of 3.3v or 5v isn't going to have any vibrations.

    Plus my headphones have a very fat cord. :P

    Looks like it will be another 10-15 days or so before the 900D arrives and I can start putting together my watercooling loop so I did a little touch up on the Switch810. Thinking this is kinda the theme I will be going for in the 900D as well, only CPU and GPU will have a waterblock on them and I will use the FusionThermo on the MB.

    Let me know what you think about my color theme etc. Blocks I will be using are: EK-FC GTX Titan XXL incl. backplate and EK Supremacy Acetal Nickel
