Default Challenge over!

... and the winner is.... Me? lol...

Found my solution(s):
Noctua NH-U9DO or Noctua NH-U12DO - Just going to call supermicro tomorrow and see how much weight their motherboard can handle.... im not too sure about 4x 120mm Tower HSFs with 5x 120mm fans between them... Thanks for all your input so far 3.0charlie & Encorp!

Hmmmm, A Dilemma! The NH-U12Do (which would be my preference since it uses 120mm fans) weighs in at 580g without a fan.... x 4 = (converted) over 5 lbs!!!! Without Fans!! I have a feel this may not be safe, however, A supermicro technician said it "should be" within spec given that each cooler will have it's own backplate that is designed to hold up to 1Kg each. Thoughts anyone?

It's well distributed weight - should not be a problem, especially with a backplate.

You mean the salmon/flesh colored monstrosities? Yes... it does. No, i will probably NOT be using them.... I've always had a weak spot for CM Blue Led fans.... and this build, like all my previous builds, shall glow BLUE dangit... hehe. For case fans though, Im not sure yet, but I still love Nexus Real Silents... Classy....
