    I need M3x35mm silver screws for the top fan - they will be visible and black screws will stand out like a sore thumb. I already bought those and replacement screws for the fan in front.

    I'll post pics when I get them all in. The important stuff will arrive in two weeks, which some things won't arrive for a couple months

    Semifinal update: The new fans came in.

    The slim front fan give a lot more clearance for ventilation, but I'm not fully happy with putting the old fan below it. The old front fan is the ONLY fan with variable speed control, and is too noisy to be uncontrolled. All other fans do not respond to attempts to lower speed. The spot does hold a 120mm fan so I'll swap it with the old top fan when the y-splitter comes in.

    The new top fan looks much better, and will look great once the unstripped silver screws and metal grate come in. I was a bit concerned about snipping the wires to feed it through the grill, but the effect is far better than having the wires jammed through a panel side or attempting to drill a larger hole for the plug.

    Check out as a good source of parts to quiet things down. My old friend and co-author Mike Chin runs a killer website called SilentPCReview that is a killer source of information about to bring down and minimize PC system noise.

    The Cooling loop is a custom loop made by

    It looks like a "
    H140-X CPU Liquid Cooling Kit (AIO)" modded with an extra radiator (roof) and custom fluid (as it should have black pipes).

    So it looks like you will have to maintain it as the fluid may or may not have (anti fungals etc).

    Best read up on liquid cooling (plenty of good sites for that, just one:
