Then do so immediately. As a precaution, also change your email password, and make sure no-one can guess what it is.

almost nobody uses it. where do you want to move it?

 

Never mind. I didn't realize the HHD sleds had 2.5" mounts. Now that I see that the 2.5" cage is pretty useless.

i will post pics of how i did it in my build log "NoName, CM Storm Trooper mod [Finished]"
How? Just... How? I want to mod mine blue.

If your putting the radiator on the top of the case (best place for it) then you want the fans on the radiator pulling air IN through the top and down into the case. The fan on the back should blow hot air out of the case and the fans in the front should blow cool air into the case. This is the best setup for cooling radiator fluid and keeping case cool.

I respectfully disagree. My independent testing shows that setting the fans for EXHAUST with a H100i at the top lead to significantly lower internal case temperatures, which of course translates into lower component temps. Yes, the CPU coolant temp is a little higher, but a 240mm radiator should have no problems keeping all but the hottest overclocks under control in either configuration.

I tried both intake and exhaust with my Trooper case and H100i, and found that with the radiator on the top set for intake, it caused my motherboard VRM, RAM, and video card temps to go up substantially. VRM surface temps were consistently 10 degrees warmer measured with a Fluke contact temp sensor, and the top video card was 5-7 degrees warmer (I have Tri-SLI GTX 680s) under full load. 100% load temps on my 3930K at 4.2 GHz (mild overclock, admittedly) were 2-3 degrees C warmer set up as exhaust rather than intake.

I've got my Trooper set up with the following fan configuration:

2x Cougar Vortex 120mm PWM in side panel blowing on GPUs as INTAKE
2x Corsair AF120 performance edition in front of case as INTAKE
1x Corsair AF140 quiet edition at rear blowing EXHAUST
2x Corsair SP120L stock H100i fans blowing out top EXHAUST

Intakes on the front/side, and exhaust at the top/back works best for me, and verified with non-MB temp sensor verification.

My only issue with the 2.5 mounts in the 3.5 bays is if you want to create your own modular cable, i dont know if they reach all the way in. I wish they placed the holes just a tad bit more forward.

thanks for the info. My reason for pulling air into the case is to keep the radiator as cool as possible. I'm not so worried about the inside of the case getting too hot as I am trying to keep my CPU cool. I7 cpu's tend to run hot. I might try reversing the fans and see how much the CPU temp jumps.

I got 2 of them. Im thinking of either selling one or modding somehow.
