I need to get that bracket to switch my stupid HSF so it is vertical thought because it is really friggen annoying which is why I was trying to get a new cooler but the ones that I did try didn't cool as well as my xiggy so I kept going back to it. So a syringe of MX-2 later I am back where i started...LOL
I don't even use my cathodes because all the LED's in there drown them out so they are there for now so if I decide to replace the green fans I will use them but I don't think that I will take them out because they make it look good IMO. I am just waiting for the warranty to run out on my PSU so that I can take that fan out and switch the LED's in that one too. It is blue now which annoys me. I dont mind the white ones on the xiggy cuz I think it makes it look better with the black HSF so I left those ones in there as well.
Yeah, my bar and fan fit just fine before I put my Zalman on the gfx card, then the tabs (or whatever) on the fan that secure the gfx card were too big (even with them fully removed), so I had to take it off. But I'm not sure if that fan was doing anything anyways so...
What color are your cathodes? Green? And as for the fan noise, these
are the ones that I've got. They move more air than the stock ones that came with the Raidmax, so I switched them out with the front intake, and put 2 on the Xiggy...they are also much more quiet...and I think it does outperform the one that came stock on the Xiggy--which I threw in my parents computer.
Anyways, when I get my hole cut, I would like to pick up a high flow (don't care how loud) one for the back exhaust (since I'm out of cooler masters anyways since one from the 4-pack is also in the 'rent's build). I was thinking of grabbing 2 or 3 of these
(free shipping after 2 anyways...). But I know Cabbs usually has some good fans to recommend...so, I'll see what he says
