I used a XSPC AX240 for low RPM fans (used two Scythe SY1212SL12L's on the bottom at 7V's for pushing and two Corsair SP120 High Performance fans on top for pulling at 5V's). The limiting factor for cooling Ivy Bridge CPU's is the TIM used on the IHS (they didn't use fluxless solder). At any rate, my temps never get past 85C during Prime95 Blend load tests at 4.7GHz (1.33V's in BIOS with Step 5 LLC). I could put the fans in full speed, and the radiator being cold to the touch, it doesn't help my core temps because of the Intel IHS/TIM debacle once it gets to a certain threshold, it'll jump up to +80C even at 1.27V's. Kind of makes me wish I used a 2500K instead.
I used a Koolance CPU-380I CPU Block (highly recommended), but you really don't need that good of a flow.
Anyways, some pics:
Overall, it's pretty quiet. I can hear the vortex sounds of the Corsair SP120 (high performance). Usually I'd use Noctua's, but I wanted fans to fit the Black/White theme. I might get the Quiet Edition and see how those do. No point in not having a completely silent build when it's possible.
Alright, I finally added my final piece, an NZXT Sentry 2 Touch Screen Fan Controller. While it doesn't lessen the sound level, it did help with the Molex to 3-pin adapter and 12V to 5V adapter clutter. Updated the pic of the window side, and provided a picture of the front panel.
