Nice photos! I see that you do not have a rear exhaust fan. Is this on purpose? I had read (somewhere) about not including one for this case. How are your temperatures?

Well the CPU heatsink blows directly at the vent in any case, so i have never installed a rear fan.

Have a stable 4.6GHz OC at 1.23V and during Prime the CPU got to 82C.

In normal use, gaming and what not, the CPU or graphics card never go above 50C.

I have a spare nexus 120mm (stock standard 1000rpm @ 12V) that i might chuck in the exhaust and see how temps go. When i can be bothered smile.gif

My gut feeling is that it would create some kind of hot air pocket around the heatsink area somewhere although i'm no expert on fluid dynamics.

If i had to put money somewhere i'd still think that front intake and rear exhaust would get you the best thermal results.

Only way to be sure is to try though! wink.gif

as soon as the new board arrives the testing begins...the whole nine yards with pics and results

Looks good serath smile.gif

If you are not using your 5.25 bay, then I might suggest you hide the USB3 and audio cable from the front of the case in there. Have the cables run from the front panel, straight up into the 5.25 so that they do not pass anywhere on the back panel.

This should tidy up the look.

thanks for the tips mate. tbh, not sure if i have the patience to recable it again!

i would love to do some custom sleeving at some point if money/time/wife/life permit, so i'll likely spend a bit more effort on it should that happen.

looking forward to seeing your sleeving and general modding results MA.

I do love this case, but when gaming it gets noisey with my current setup. This being the case I have decided to watercool my CPU (3570k) and GPU (EVGA GTX 680 Sig II).

Ideally I want to reverse the penetrator fan so that it is pulling the hot air out of the case. I will also be using a single 120mm rad on the back which I also want to use as an exhaust.
I realise that this means that I will need a new intake for the cold air. Do you think it would be possible to add a 2nd Penetrator fan in the base (or under the case or on the side panel) to act as an air intake?

The reason I want to do this, is that I don't like the idea of either radiator fan blowing hot air into the case.

Thanks in advance.

I guess with a dremel and a drill, a bottom-mounted fan would be relatively easy, especially if you're using a fan smaller than the AP181 and you aren't using the hard drive bays. Obviously you'd lose positive pressure, so dust build-up would increase. You'd probably want taller feet and a filter. Or side-mount if you're ok with unplugging the fan every time you get into the case, or use an extension..
