My first go at a custom gaming rig. Not too shabby if I do say so myself :)
I'm confused about your fan setup. Your bottom three fans are pushing air into the PSU compartment. Meaning the cooler air coming from the front fans are immediately being ejected out of the main compartment.
Your Video card fan pushes air towards the heat sink, which is the opposite direction of your bottom fans, meaning they're fighting for the same air.
I mean, they look great, but I don't think they're adding much value to your cooling and/or its just very inefficient.
I considered this as well. In my gaming tests, the GPU fans do not come on 95% of the time. In fact, the only time they have come on is when I overclock.
Switching the bottom fans to the top of the case should help with the heat sink and air competition. It won't look as good though :)
I like the aesthetics, but those 3 downward facing fans are fighting your GPU for air. It would be better to run them as intake to feed your air into your GPU. This will result in a positive pressure build, but that should work better than currently configured.
I would put the 3 ll120s on the front and the xigmatek ones on top.
Will try out your suggestion. Feedback is always welcome!
I would get some custom cables/cable extenders for those cables. Other than that, clean build.
Other than moving the fans like other people have said, I think this is a great build.
ps I love the LL fans :)
Glad it has your seal of approval! The LL fans are great, might replace the case fans with more of them in the future :D
how much did you pay for the Motherboard?
