Yes it did was good and more than enough plus it allowed me to line up perfectly with the front rad port. The those 90* also were amazing how much flexibility it gave me to have a much direct connection and cleaner look too. The Rubber tubes was easier to work with too making the process painless and easier to work with. I feel is not super busy inside the case too allowing me room to work around stuff when needed. Now for the new fans to see how they will work out.

ITAngel, I have the 1840 rpm AP15s, your 2150s must have incredible static pressure!

OH really? do yours perform well with noise at higher rpms? that is my only worry but figure I give them a try and see compare to my SP120 from corsair.

The AP15s are the BEST I've ever used balancing performance with noise. I used a 6 channel NZXT fan controller and have fan splitters (2 to 1) so all 12 fans (4 per rad in push mode) can be controlled from low to high. On low speed you get 35-40% power or @700rpms which is virtually silent. Mine are rated at 28 DBA at max and yours are 32 DBA max. On high you can hear them but it is NOT an annoying sound. My Corsair SP120s were much noisier.

The Gentle Typhoons are built like tanks. I bought mine used but Cooler Dude guys carries them new for @$20 per fan. Expensive BUT well worth it.

LOL! KICK Donkey! good one love that. Yes I am excited, and then I can focus on other stuff later on, To bad all I am ruining are 5 fans total. The rear case fan not sure if I want to flip that one around to feed more air to the case. Add a panty hose stucking as filter to prevent dust from going in. Or maybe keep as is?

Question should I keep the pump on CPU Fan header or CPU Fan header 2 or plug it along with the other fans on my Swiftech 8W-PWM-SPL-ST 8 Way PWM Splitter-Sata?

I'll defer to Witch Doctor. I don't monkey with my pumps as they are all D5 Varios that I control through the setting on the pump and let them run.
