Should I change the top fans to blow in? So I also cool the ram and the a bit of the gpu?
Also I have the window panel.

I will Snorkle.gif my new gpu when/if it arrives but for now I'll stick with air cooling.

I noticed drops in temps (best temps i've had with my setup and I tried many combinations) when I turned all of my fans to blow inward... this case has enough venting to excavate the hot air biggrin.gif I can feel it bellowing out when I crank the fans up thumb.gif

Lol no you cant run all those, its 1 amp per channel if I remember correctly. If you have any electronics experience you can do as I have done and wire up a relay to power them off the normal switch.

What are you referring to as "the normal switch?"

I'm not too worried about that, more of the rest of the case. Its a mess, i'll get the pics later. the only thing I'm the lease bit impressed with is the Bitfenix cable setup i got the for the HDD's. Soooo clean.

Here's a pic of the internals. Maybe some advice can be givin based on that. Cabled are annoying. I wish i could go 100% wireless.

I ran a bunch of cables behind my mobo

The fan controller that came with the case.

link to official post I got from CM

Explained:
It's 1 Amp per header / cable with the exception of the brown/black split cable that's 0.5 Amp per connector.

Example:
The power draw of a Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition 120mm fan is 0.08 Amps. Theoretically you can hook 6 fans up on one of the brown/black connectors. I wouldn't though.

Note: I wouldn't put more than 3 fans per header directly on the Front Panel print plate. This still gives you 9 fans. Unless someone put more fans on it..

Since i first learnt to build PC's, in the dark and hidden cave that we must all go to learn such a dark craft, i have always been told, from to back cooling, drag your cool air over your hardware and push it out the back, but this sometimes seems a little backwards.

I am going to strip all teh case fans from my ST tonight, and stick a bunch of new Corsair SP120's in place on them, and then over the weekend much to the annoyance of my gf, spend the time ignoring her and rearranging fans. The only Out fans i am going to use will be the H100 in the room, as heat rises i figure it is futile to try and defie physics and get cold air drawn in from the roof port.

Also going to see how much affect on the air flow the magnetic case covers i bought are, they look sexy, which in IT terms means they will be the devil! :S

ill post some build pictures tonight of the various layers of Case Nudity and gratuitous XXX hardware that is going into this new machine.

I've tested the "hot air rises" thing and as much sense as it makes it is simply not something to consider when you are blowing all the air around with fans, my results indicated this. It's more of a concern to have good positive pressure and making sure that all components have direct air blowing over them and to channel the air movement towards your exit fan(s).

Here is how I found to be the best results for temps on air cooling:
