  1. Nice rig! One major selling point to me was the sound dampening that was on the case. With the top covers on and mainly just the front rad, a hand full of fans and a GPU it shouldn't be TOO loud but I'm sure as hell that it won't be nearly as loud as my current outdated rig. I would post a picture of my current rig but it's just too sad to even post, we've all had one of those Frankenstein towers I'm sure lol. I will be making a building time-lapse video of my new rig once I get my GTX 1080, it's the last thing I need. All new everything and looking forward to finally making it happen ( specs in profile ) I was thinking of custom watercooling but I may save that for the future. Edit: I'm also trying to maintain a black and white theme and with looking at all I got I think it's gonna be pretty slick.
  2. Awesome! My main dilemma was the PSU and worrying about positive pressure. I'll set it up that way for sure Shibbs and the little fan I have pushing air out of the case since it's just a baby lol. How loud is your system?
  3. I have the Define R5 and my rad can only fit in the front and if I can I'd like to keep the top covers on the vents. So rad in the front with 4 SP 140m Fans, 1 AF 140m Fan in the back, and the little mobo fan pull air from the case and out the back too. More intake than exhaust = positive pressure from what I've gathered from online. That's what's getting me thinking about the PSU, if the fan is pointing up then it is another exhaust pushing air out which would make it about even on the intake to exhaust ratio.
  4. Now with the rad in the front pulling the air in would just a single 140mm fan in the back of the case be enough to create positive pressure or should I also have my PSU pulling air out? EDIT: Also this little guy on my mobo. Would it be alright to pull air from the case and out the back do you think?
  5. I watched that video but I guess I must have ended it early or just missed that detail . The prompt replies are far superior compared to Reddit. Wish I would have joined the forums a long time ago.
  6. That's what I was thinking I was just wanting a 2nd opinion, thanks man! I'll pick some up when I go and pick up my 1080 from MicroCenter. Whenever they get them in... Have been waiting for the EVGA FTW edition.
  7. I would like to get positive pressure and from what I can see in my case ( Define R5 ) I can't mount a 280mm rad Corsair 115i AIO on the top, the only place it will fit is on the front, no biggie. After reading and watching videos on if it being on the front matters or not and I'm settled with it. Anyway, I want to know if I can put 2x 140mm SP fans on the outer most part of the case pulling, with that can I put 2x 140mm AF fans on the other side of the rad pull air through the rad with the other two SP fans pulling air into the system? Or do I need to get 2 more SP fans to put on the side of the rad. Mainly wondering if it would make a difference if I used either AF or SP fans for the 2nd set of fans on the other side of the rad. This all being the done with a 140mm AF fan is in the back of the case pulling air out.
