Default Atcs 840

Thought I'd show some pics of my rig here:


Q9450 @3.6
EVGA 260 (216) HC
300 GB Velciraptor x 2 (raid 0)
OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper
2 x WD 500 GB HDD
NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller

Thoughts right now, just waiting for the primochill Typhoon III to be released then I'll be running dual loops (red & Green) and ading a tripple rad mounted to the roof of the case with the provided bracketing. with the swiftech res out of the way I could also mount a single rad there or should I just go with a decent fan? Thinking there might be some dust build up without that exhaust fan, what do you guys think? As for components, I'm staying away from I7 core until Sata III slots are into production, shes not a huge beast right now but @ 3.6 Ghz I find no reason to spend all that cash to upgrade to a 920. Also, next board will have NB waterblock aswell, really like the EVGA CLassified and the Watervlocks available, but its a bit pricey

So you'd like to have 3 rads in your pc (the one next to your hdd, on top and in the back) ? That's too many radiators for your pump (especialy when having 3 waterblocks in the loop too).
Descent fan will also help cooling other parts in your pc like the voltage regulators.

That pump I have now won't be staying tho, unless I decide to use a second pump aswell. I'll be getting the D5 with the Typhoon III. At the sametime, I think your right, I'll just add a noctua fan instead of a single rad there for exhaust.

concerning the dust, you'll always get dust, even with exhaust fans. Cleaning the inside from time to time is the best solution.
Or get dust filters, but you'll have to clean those as wel because they get cloged and restrict the air flow too much
