    Try Barrow OBL-1410 and Barrow TWDQ15. Both allow you to have slightly different angles. The latter will increase height a bit.

    Looks really nice! Is it possible to install slim top intake/exhaust fans when having the 280 on the side?

    Thanks. Looks like one rotary 90-degree fitting plus one non-rotary 90 may work, depending on the height of the GPU rotary terminal.

    With the rotary terminal in 1.25-slot mode, one of the fittings will be pointing to the rear of the case. It seems that there is no exit path for the tube, or am I missing something? There is only ~6mm between the side panel and a typical waterblock, so I don’t think one can squeeze a tube in...

    Same here. Only “recess“ is on the mobo side for the riser.

    I did test that config (see pic 3 of this post) but I didn't record the results because it wasn't meaningfully better (no more than 1 C).

    For A12x15 + TX240 you can use M4 5mm spacers (or 6mm with a tiny amount of bulge). I got them from here. Just remember that you will also need longer screws.

    Looks pretty promising if this review is accurate: https://www.ocinside.de/test/arctic_p12_slim_pwm_pst_d/5/ Same level of noise at 1356 rpm as regular P12 at 1056 rpm while being just 1 C worse. Can’t say about that particular comparison. But you should use three A12x15 (or two A12x15 plus...

    Haha yes when you have already tinkered with so many things you start to think about more insane ideas. Here's a pretty simple thing to do to use the front panel as a passive heatsink: At coolant temp of 42 C the front panel is about 37 C. I did not measure the temp before I did this but my...

    Haha yes. They do get pretty warm but don't seem to make a difference. But I just left them on since it doesn't hurt.

    Found a spot to keep my Quadro out of sight.

    I went in the test with those expectations as well. When testing Toughfan 12 and A12x15 on a radiator outside the case it seemed that there was no contest. Both at full speed, Toughfan 12 had noticeably more airflow and was probably a bit quieter. I was too puzzled by the result. I think...

    So I tested these two setups: Three A12x15s on the top radiator (elevated by 6mm w/ these, which results in 1 °C improvement than not elevated as tested previously). Two Thermaltake Toughfan 12 (aka "pre-release" Noctua A12x25 chromax) on the top radiator (pull) + one A12x15 (push). I did not...

    Yes it's more for VRM than the SSD. My SSD (Intel 660p) stays below 40 C even with that fan off. I tested VRM/PCH temps before in this post.

    So in my dual-rad setup I tested not having these 6mm worth of washers. It's 1 C worse in coolant temp without them. Top & side radiator fans @ 1200rpm, 380W load. This is in preparation for testing Thermaltake's Toughfan 12, since it's unclear when Noctua A12x25 chromax will come out.
