Hi expert guys + gals, It's been a looonggg time since I messed with my loop (like 4yrs), and besides the odd clean out and top-up of water + purifier, I haven't touched it, nor kept abreast of what's going on. Except now it's all in dire need of some TLC. One of the three Scythe radiator fans has stopped, the one of fan controller channels has stopped, and the RAM cooler is squeaking very loudly. I haven't actually drained it in >2yrs now so that's probably overdue. So I'm looking at refreshing the entire cooling solution to get the "best value of money" possible way forward. The specs are in my signature, for the PC [INDIE]. As I am so out of the loop (#boomtish), I was wondering what the best way to do this is these days? So my questions/thought/ramblings are: What are "the" fans to use for a 360mm radiator these days? I couldn't seem to find more Scythe, but found the Nidec ones? What's the best way/device to get a fan controller for the pump, rad fans, case fans, preferably with some kind of software control? If I'm trying to minimise outlay, would this be a good time to replace (sell) my custom loop with a AOI kit? I'm only cooling the CPU and it doesn't really run that hot anyway, the GPU is the hottest by far and that's still air cooled. The 5.25" res I have is a major PITA as I want to get a smaller case and cases with double 5.25" bays seem to be getting harder to get? If I look an AOI, which would be recommended? 240/280mm or 360mm is OK, I guess 240 would be more compatible with more cases? At a minimum I need to replace the fan controller and the stopped fan. Not LED control required. Apologises for the brain dump and please be nice, I know a lot of this information is available and I'll be doing my own research too over the coming weeks and look to do it over Xmas/New Year when I have time off. But really, just tell me what to do :yesmaam:. Thanks!
