So this is my latest build :

2 things I need to do still :

Get a custom white GPU Backplate and
Create a false bottom, and fill out the rest of the PSU cover to hide the cabling.

Other than that, quite spiffy looking, even if I must say so myself.

those white fans though

*TRIGGERS OCD*
Indeeed.

I wanted to get the 3 Pack as well for my exhaust fans. But then I would have negative air pressure inside.. So for whatever reason, the black LL's have a lower CFM rating than the white.. So 2 x white LL's have a higher combined CFM than the 3 x black LL's, so still positive air pressure inside.

that makes no sense at all

need some proof how by just changing their color, they also ended up changing specs?????

were the whites stock fans?

Yeah I don't know either.

But I went according to the specs on their site :

Black LL : https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/Fans/ml-config/p/CO-9050072-WW#tab-tech-specs
43.25 CFM

White LL : https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/Liquid-Cooling/Dual-Radiator-Liquid-Coolers/Hydro-Series™-H100i-RGB-PLATINUM-SE-240mm-Liquid-CPU-Cooler/p/CW-9060042-WW
63 CFM

So 43.25 x 3 = 129.75 CFM and 63 x 2 CFM = 126 CFM.

I run the exhaust fans at around 50%, and intake at around 75%. So positive air pressure :)

ah see, their stock fans aren't really the fans you would get in the retail sense so you can't compare them

unless someone here has bought white LLs and black and they can also see difference

in this case, obviously the white will have such a large CFM considering their static pressure as well

so now go paint them black dammit :p

Just one last thing to complete that awesome look - a white RGB backplate for that GPU

or...

Vertical mount.

Never received this notification for some reason.

Yeah I'm working on a back plate. Will add more pics when all falls into place.

Also organizing cables from Beyond Customs.

Gonna go for this : MDPC-X Natural-White I Haze-Grey I Platinum-Grey I Titanium-Grey I Shade-19 I Blackest-Black

Will be turning them radiator fans around over the weekend. Only see now that I had them exhaust out the front instead of intake, thanks @dash09 for pointing it out.

Who sells the white aio cooler?
I bought this from the Corsair distributor.
