Re: Where to Purchase Ultra-Fine Dust Filter Mesh

Great question! :mrgreen: I'd also like to know. I suppose the alternative could be making our own by cutting Industrial-quality dust filters to our preferred size?

Re: Antec Mini P180 200mm Fan for H20 Cooling?

I just measured today and the answer is NO, a 200mm radiator will not mate flush with 200mm Antec fan if placed between fan and top of case. So, a smaller top fan with a sealed funnel would be the only way to have that configuration working properly...and so my modding mayhem begins... :twisted:

It seems like this Silverstone Fortress FT03 case will be very loud with a good video card and quad core cpu @ 4ghz. I don't see anything in the case design that trys to combat noise and perhaps that is why they did not have it powered on?

so there is not enough space to sandwich a thin 200mm radiator between the top of the case and the fan? Or is it some other reason it won't fit?

Antec Mini P180 200mm Fan for H20 Cooling?

Putting a 200mm radiator above this fan seems like a good idea, but not sure a radiator can be sandwiched between the fan and the top of the case. Those of you that have the Antec Mini P180, how much lower can you move the 200mm fan without hitting anything?

Water cooling as it is done in a PC is actually quite the same as air cooling. A copper block (predominantly) takes the heat off the chip, transfers it to a conductor (heatpipes or water) which is then run through a set of fins (heatsink or raditator) through which air is forced to cool it. The adv...

It's been proven mathmatically and physically that water cooling (Convection) is more effective at heat transfer compared to air cooling (Conduction). With that said, if the water cooling setup is not optimized for that computer, it can be louder than a very good air cooled setup. So, the trick to w...
