And maybe some examples?
I know I might have to cut some things (depending on 120/140/240 rads).

Nice rig thumb.gif

i have 280 on top, 120 back and 140 bottom, all are magicool slim rads, no cut or any mods needed
but psu should be no longer than 160mm

Thanks.
Your rig looks sweet as well.
I'll check my psu before ordering an extra rad.
I do got a few questions, if you mind me asking.
Does a 140mm rad fits at the back?
What's your airflow config? (in bottom and front / out back and top)

Hi shobot,
I want to ask you about your fan on H100
Is that "Push" position?
So you push the hot air and dust into the case?

thanks
in my config 140 rad don't fit at the back, it collide with side wall and top rad

i'm using nine be quiet! silent wings fans to push air:
2x140 on top - exhaust
2x120 front - intake
1x120 back - exhaust
1x140 bottom - exhaust
2x140 side - intake
and 1x135 in be quiet! psu

It depends on his air pressure. If he has more air being pushed into the case than being sucked out, dust wise it may be better. A fan intake like the top wont gather too much dust, compared to places like the bottom of a case. By pushing more air into the case than is being blown out, the extra air will flow out all the various little holes spread around the case, which would otherwise attract dust. Whether this actually works I don't know but I know the theory on it is enough that a very large amount of people follow this rule.

I dont know if this has been answered already, but the 1394 wire is your firewire, its relatively new, so most motherboards out there wont have a motherboard connector for it.

thanks for the info Tomha
what if i used this combination for my 500R

upper - outake - 120mm x 2
front - intake - 120mm x 3 (one was in front of HDD and SDD, so i think this doesn't count intake fan)
back - outtake - 140mm x 1
side - intake - 140mm x 2
bottom - none

is it okay or not?

Ah okay. I have a Asrock z68 extreme3 gen3, does this mother board have this feature?
Also, about the front fans, I can't get them to work. Do they need to be directly plugged into the PSU? Or can I use the adapter (my previous post) and connect the front fans directly to the motherboard?

the fans have a unique connector that only plug into the headers off the front of the case.

It doesn't look like it does from the product page on their website. Don't worry about it, just tuck the cable away somewhere around the back tongue.gif
