  1. @narrdarr You are right I should probably try a different fan header. Will do that tomorrow as its getting late in Australia, thanks very much for the idea. Case is Lian-Li O11D, radiator is on the side as intake. I have the water hoses at the bottom of the radiator as I thought that does not matter if they are top or bottom. Motherboard is Asus X570-E see link: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/product/CLkgXL/asus-rog-strix-x570-e-gaming-atx-am4-motherboard-rog-strix-x570-e-gaming I have enabled fan control in BIOS, (it is disabled by default for AIO Pump header and another one think it was WPUMP) and set custom fan curves already. Also not so sure if readings are wrong as hwinfo64 is reading the same as NZXT CAM. Just found there is a tab in the CAM software to report issue, maybe I should contact them, heard they are not too bad at customer service.But I think everyone can agree that pump should be louder when its running at higher rpm.
  2. HWINFO is also reporting the same rpm as NZXT CAM. But does not make sense that the sound does not change at all between different RPM. I have moved it around but its not a water gurgling sound, sounds like a vaccuum cleaner just signifcantly quieter I think.
  3. How reliable are the rpm readings from NZXT CAM? It doesn't go over 1200 ish on there at the moment really on custom profile. I actually just put it on Silent and it went to 2400 and it does not seem to make a difference to the sound... so I don't trust it saying 800 earlier. Should I control it with NZXT CAM only or is there something else that can do it?
  4. iNVH app records these noise levels. Not sure if I am using it correctly, never done that sorta stuff. I have enabled controls for the AIO Pump fan header that its plugged in and set to silent profile as well and adjusted the fan curve as well. It should be on minimum speed up to 55°C or something, but no matter if NZXT reports 2000rpm or 800, the pump doesn't sound quieter at slower speeds as reported by NZXT. Will probably also download hwinfo64 to check a few things.
  5. Hi all, I have finished my build and have a NZXT Kraken X73 to cool my CPU. First, my temperatures are extremely insane. Much lower then I was expecting. Some games like RDR2 I can run at higher setting and GPU and CPU do barely go much above the 50s. (C) The pump sort of sounds the same even if I make changes and NZXT software if reporting different speeds. Its plugged into the AIO Pump header on my X570-E mainboard. My fans are making a bit of noise as I have a total of 12 (3 GPU, 3 AIO stock and 6 be quiet Pure Wings 2) I might do a video, but I can hear the pump through the glass panel of my O11D a lot louder than any of the fans, including the ones from the AIO. Is this normal? Maybe I should get an app on phone to record decibels? Not sure what is normal but a bit worried that different pump speeds don't seem to produce different noise levels...
  6. Ah that makes sense, forgot that there is C and A! Thanks, learning something new all the time, really enjoyed building everything.
  7. Hello everyone, first of all thank you very much as youtube and this forum were the biggest helpers in my build, got to POST screen on Sunday, and taking it slow, just have to install a few more SSD's and a little more cable management before I will install W10 and change my old tower out for the new one. Just have 2 or 3 questions if you don't mind. (In my opinion I have no problems yet so it should not be a troubleshooting post really, hope I am in the right subforum haha) 1. O11D top cover not closing: I will probably just put the magnetic dust cover on top for now, but I think it looks a lot better having it underneath. I have read threads and people seem to be having trouble with this. My screws may be the issue, I am using the ones that came with "be quiet Pure Wings 2". I have 3 of them installed and left a gap at the front and back for the 3 fans, maybe I can try to move them a bit more and succeed. If not, who has fans installed and used some other screws, if I have to buy 12 screws and can make it work, I will do it! Want to make it look as good as I can. 2. I/O connections from the O11D to my mainboard. It comes with 2 USB connectors, and I have currently not tested front usb ports on the case yet, but I have both plugged in. Do I need both? I have 2 fans at bottom, and not installed a third yet as it may bend one of the case I/O USB connections a little bit. MB is Asus 570-E. I plugged one USB into the "USB 3.2 Gen 2 front panel connector (U32G2_C9)" and the second one into "USB 3.2 Gen 1 front panel connector (U32G1_1011). If I only need one (which I think but I haven't build a PC since 2012) then it would be great to just have the first one only plugged in! Thanks for reading and always being mighty helpful!
  8. So based on votes its 3 for intake and 1 for exhaust. Will probably do the build slowly, not finish today, but if I get to POST and temps today I'll let you know!
  9. If I knew how important the positive pressure is AND how my CPU temps would be with either solution, then I would be very wise. Lets say intake would make my CPU 70 under load and my GPU 75, and exhaust would make my CPU 80 and my GPU 72 that seems like not the best idea overall. Hmmmm.
  10. That would also make it positive pressure if I put it on side panel, and my GPU is meant to be decent for cooling. Thanks so far for the input Positive pressure is better for reducing dust ingress i think.
  11. Hi, I will be installing NZXT Kraken X73 today or tomorrow, not sure if I should go exhaust or intake. O11D is my case, and I have another 6 be quiet 120mm fans. I was thinking 3 intake at bottom, 3 exhaust at top and also 3 exhaust for the AIO installed on the side. (I am thinking AIO on side is safer then on top in case there would be a leak, I am probably just paranoid as this is my first time into liquid even though its just an AIO) CPU is 3900X a) Is this what I should do, 3 bottom intake, 3 top exhaust and AIO side exhaust x3 b) Should I go with same configuration, but have the AIO be intake to maintain positive air pressure as I just read a few minutes ago? I do not want to warm up the inside case too much, using EVGA 2070Super FTW3 as my GPU c) Should I not be scared and put AIO on top as exhaust and just mount 3x side and 3x bottom all as intake? I watched so many videos on all of this that I think I am overthinking and confusing myself, please assist How important is positive pressure is basically my question, or a, b, c? (House can be quite dusty but at least O11D is a breeze to clean)
  12. Which cooler comes with a triple fan splitter? I will have the AIO stuff to plug into MB and also another total of 6 fans (3 bottom, 3 top), if I counted correct the MB does not have enough slots for it, or does it? (with or without that splitter?) I also thought maybe a fan controller could make the build neater looking, doesnt have to be an expensive one?

Looking at the mainboard I think I may need a fancontroller? I will also be reusing 2 SSD (SATA) and I sort of remember that my SATA cable was not suitable for one of the SSD and I had to tinker somewhat with it and bend some stuff to the side? (It's been a while, are all SATA cables the same or is there differences? Consider buying: Cable ties (don't think I have any left, will have a look) Some sort of fan controller if I need (recommendations?) Maybe another SATA cable just in case? Will probably have the AIO as exhaust on the side and 3 fans intake bottom and exhaust top. I should be good to go then! I am scared and excited! Will probably watch at least 5 videos on how to install my CPU AIO cooler haha. Thanks for all the help so far!
  14. Hi all, Just a discussion if you don't mind before I order all my parts, if you want more details look at my other posts As we all know, this case comes with 0 fans preinstalled. I will get a 360AIO for the CPU, thinking of mounting it on the side. My GPU will be air-cooled EVGA 2070 Super FTW3. Now to the questions. Is it generally considered best to have more intake than exhaust fans or the other way around? What about this specific case? I have googled and a lot of people seem to have radiator (exhaust) at the top with another exhaust fan at the back, and then go for intake at the bottom and the side. I just want it to be reasonably quiet and get good airflow so that my GPU will be nice and cool. Haven't decided on which fans yet either, might even no without RGB! Probably Noctua or bequiet or something, good performance to noise ratio. (Got Nanoxia fans left over from current build as well) How good for airflow is it if my radiator is at the side, and should that be intake (I think exhaust is maybe better)? Should I fill all the slots with fans that I can, or is that overkill and should only go with like 2 intake and 1 exhaust apart from radiator? If anything has experience with this, please let me know. Also not 100% sure if this is the right forum or if I should have asked in Cases and PSU as its very specific. But its all airflow and fan questions. Cheers, Leng
  15. Yes one that is basically 2 24" next to each other sort of ultrawide could work, everything these days should work easily windowed, in terms of games? Some of the use would be for game on one side and browser on the other. Also if 1440p does actually not make any sense on a 24", maybe I should just go for 144Hz IPS panel then which would be easy. I forgot to mention I would run it on a 2070 Super so Gsync would be good too. Thanks for the recommendations so far and the help! Much appreciated.
