I have the parts listed below......and i was having a problem with my temperatures. My CPU running 45c idle and my Mobo running the same at
45c idle.

I changed a few things in the Armor case. I placed the the iCAGE at the very bottom. and flipped it around......where the intake is much closer to the mobo.

I flipped the 120 mm rear exhaust and made it into an intake. Then place a spare 120mm fan laying flat on the bottom of the case as an intake.

Here is an professional drawing of a diagram of my case: enjoy the timely picture.

Stock AirFlow:


Changed Airflow:

Again.....I took the iCage (front fan) and turned the icage around which would cause the fan to become a exhaust fan. Then flipped the Fan around to become an intake.



Results:

CPU idle: 37c-38c
Mobo idle: 33c-34c

Huuuuuuge difference......very happy with results. Hope this helps any high temp. peeps. The bottom fan seems to be alittle rigged......will secure it to a small raised platform when able.

a bigger pic would have been nice. Good job and results dude. Did you mod it at all by adding any holes or ???

btw most people agree that a total of a neutral air flow is best. I guess not in the situation.

Hmmm...I wonder how much help someone needs who has 500 posts and a rep a 12???

I currently don't have the same results that i posteds months ago. My wife kicked in the side of the case, cause 30% of the plexy glasses to be missing.
