My first ever build. Took a year to save up for. 6 months of research. 3 months of active planning. 2 nights to build. No issues with build so far. Not had to redo, reroute or replace anything.

I went from an Athlon x4 880k / gtx 750ti build to this...monster. It’s eaten everything I can throw at it and more. 360 eisbaer rad in the top slot keeps everything in the mid 30’s to 40c even when heavy gaming on titles like far cry 5 and AC Odyssey.

Did it all on my own with no prior experience. Special thanks to sites like toms hardware, hardware Canucks and pc part picker. Couldn’t have done it without.

Shame the true beauty of the ll 120’s doesnt show up in the photos. I just installed a 3 pack & my iPad camera just cant do them justice. As soon as I find someone who knows what they are doing w a camera I’ll post my own year in the making build. People who haven’t seen them in person wont believe the bright, vivid color. Looks great!

Yeah I totally agree. Was a bit disappointed with the quality of the pics on iPhone. Just couldn’t get the contrast right and they didn’t really do it justice. I would recommend the ll120 though. I used it as a replacement for the alphacool eiswind stock fans to add a little flair. The total cfm is lower but they look great and perform very well as radiator fans so far.
