Gaming and casual use. Would have liked if radiator mounted on top of this case instead of side.
Why couldn't you mount the rad at the top of your rig? Looks like those are two 120mm fans. For the record, coming from a pipefitter, you should never have the pump as the high-point in a system. Having your cooling system mounted in this manner can result in airlocking your pump if you lose any water, and if that happens you can kiss your CPU goodbye.
coulndnt agree more, disaster waiting to happen.
might not have enough room for the rad to go on the top for the mobo ram slots to clear
That still doesn't invalidate my statement. It might look a bit nasty, but it would be better to have the fans or rad outside the case (on top) if they don't fit inside.
Also, the rad is only 27mm thick (plus the 25mm thickness of the fans). Should fit fine, providing there aren't any other issues.
Unless that motherboard is somehow in the way of the radiator+fans, that pump is going to die soon. Then the CPU will keep shutting down, probably won't die.
dude, your pump is going to run dry like that. You need the rad on top so the gravity can help bring down the liquid to the pump.
I wish i could do that but it doesn't fit correctly with my motherboard. :(
When was this built? Why did you get Win Pro? I really like that monitor but only if you're seriously gaming.
If This Build Was Recent The Yeah......
Couldn't he have mounted the rad in the rear to make it a bit better? Seems like it would have had enough clearance and would give him some better water flow??
How do you like the case? Any complaints about it?
Actually, I really like this case for what it has to offer. I have recently decided to upgrade this case to a Phanteks Enthoo Pro. The only complaints that I have about the N600 is that it is small and is very hard to mount rads in the top above the motherboard. I switched because my new case is unbelievable at $99 because it is very sleek and has much more to offer than N600.
How's the case? Specifically the quality of the window, that was the one thing I heard about it that was a bit sub-par.
If I could mod this I would probably put in a clearer plexiglass its a little to smoked out for me. Also it scratches very easily. Other than that this is the best case for the money in my opinion.
Yeah, purchased it about a month back :)
was extremely careful with the window and don't think I scrated it. It'll be a good case for the next half decade or so with plenty of room for me to expand. I think it'll be a decent investement.
From what I heard DDR3-1600 is better for gaming.
Question: Could you tell me how loud the 200m front intake fan is? I believe it's a 3-pin fan so you can't exactly control it that much.
At 100% speed, right next to you while using the computer, is it too noisy? At night, could you sleep with that big guy spinning?
I always have my headphones on, however, when I'm gaming and my girl is sleeping, I can't have much noise coming from the computer.
I'm decided to buy the Enthoo Pro, I just need to know if I should change the front intake fans for dual 140mm fans (or whatever else) because of the noise.
Its very quiet. In fact quietier than my corsair AF 120s. That is a great case you'll love it.
