If you notice in the manual it also says if your psu has a fan your supposed to face the fan down. Then what's the point of the filter on top?

Stupid manual! That makes no sense.

Anyway it seems like a no-brainer to remove the cage if using a single hard drive. If nothing else it makes the case less cluttered inside.

I was considering using multiple 2.5" drives but I had not realised that a 3.5" drive can be mounted in the bottom. Can't see the point now of going for multiple 2.5" drives. A single 3.5" drive would give me more capacity than multiple 2.5" drives.

has anyone fitted this in the case and see how it goes? I reckon it will clear a lot of space for CPU cooling.

I guess it depends on each needs. In my case, im fine with 120gb ssd and 500gb of storage (i have a server atm with 6tb), now considering the mechanical hdd will be on the bottom without much direct ventilation, i went with 2.5 drive out of they are design to operate with very little airflow on laptops. But will see once i assemble all stuff, as there is 2.5 ssd slot on the bottom, still unsure if ill use it, as i already also ordered [ame="http://www.amazon.com/SILVERSTONE-SDP08-3-5-2-5-Inch-Converter/dp/B002BH3Z8E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312391501&sr=8-1"]SILVERSTONE SDP08 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter[/ame]

Hi all, I've been reading the thread all day (at work) and am totally sold on the case (if I can find one in stock anywhere). From what i've gathered, the best cooling option in this case is a noctua d14 (perhaps a custom water cooling kit bit it'd be tight). Let me know if there's anything better that will fit. I'll be using a gene-z mobo, and plan to use the D14. How high can you OC the CPU at what temperatures? I haven't been able to find any numbers in the forums.

Also, has anyone tried mounting 3.5's vertically so as to be able to use a massive heat sink in multiple 3.5s?

On a second note, as i've been wanting to water cool a rig, would it be worth it in this case? I'd prolly cool the GPU and CPU, with a koolance 5" bay res/pump, a 240 rad behind the 180 fan and perhaps a 120 rad on the back vent.

Thoughts on room and would it be worth it?

I remember someone asked if a 200mm fan would fit in the front. Did anyone ever try it and show that it would/wouldn't fit? I mean, it depends where the extra millimeters are as the case is only 210mm wide.

On a related note, in Nagles review, it was mentioned that the fan was really loud running at high. Could anyone suggest a quieter fan? (I know, I would have to remove the front plate)

You can use any standard 140mm fan on the front. Also a 200mm wont fit, you could try rigging 2 120mms though(not guarantied to work though). The fan I only turn on high when I'm gaming and I dont notice it much.

Typo? "down" should've been "up"?
