    Have you considered the IndustrialPPC fans with red Chromax accessories?

    I have thought about it a lot actually, the reasons I have so decided against them are the fans on the cooler NF-A15 PWM are not available in a IPPC virsion, the system runs so cool as it is I just don't need the extra 500 - 700 rpms, and last the red vibration pad came out after it was all put together. I do think it would look better as I'm not a huge fan of the Noctua colors but it has grown on me a little and at least people who know PC components know I didn't just fill my rig with cheap $5 fans with an LED. I would say it was function and quality over aesthetics.

    It is a beast, and hate to be negative, but all those extra fans shouldn't make much difference to CPU temperature. Have you compared the set up to just one or two fans?

    The velocity of the air that passes through the heat sink remains the same, thus cooling is barely affected. You do get a slight drop in temperature though, as a result of slightly higher static pressure.

    For example, the NH-D15S has only one fan, but the CPU temp increases by a mere 2 degrees. That's right, all this time, we Noctua fans have been running with two fans for only 2 degrees cooler temps. Pointless. Precisely why for my Skylake build I went for the NH-D15S.

    I'd guess your set up with three fans instead of one, would equate to just 4 degrees cooler under load.

    I like it!

    I presume you had to nail it to the floor before starting it up
