i will post more pics as the rig evolves. but... for now, i am more than happy with it.

if Corsair made ML fans with the LL ARGB fan features, i would swap the Riing lighting... but they do not at the moment.
Jonsbo make some outstanding ring fans. Probably where Thermal take took the design from.

so, the Riing fans that came with the ThermalTake watercooling bundle are not PWM.
and, the lighting from the fans are not really adding to the feel of this rig.

also, with being just 3-pin they are very LOUD, when the reducers are not fitted. with the reducers fitted, they do not cool enough.

i would not recommend them.

after much researching and debating i have decided to go with these:


yes, i know they are loud at full RPM, but they will only be like that when my BEAST is working flat out - and it will not be for long periods of time.

when these are at idle, or even gaming, (using the Apex mobo's Q-fan modes) they will not be heard, maybe not even on at all.

i chose these as i have researched them as being the best static pressure fans available so far (IMHO).

depending on how these fair, i may also end up replacing the chassis's rear exhaust to a NF-A14-IPPC-2000-PWM fan.

3x 120 for the rad:


1x 140 for the exhaust:


the rig is now complete:


it is quiet as a mouse when not under load, but when it is 4.8GHz at full throttle it's like a jet plane taking off.
but the extra 6 (yes SIX) degrees lower temps are worth it.
