Will these be a bad combo being that the MB dose not have FireWire onboard & the case has a FireWire plug in front?

the case's firewire leads to a USB header.

Problem with that is, the MB only has one onboard USB3 header for the two front panel USB ports...

What is it you are using to attach the radiator to the top of the case some sort of bracket?

I've got some Deepcools. They're awesome. As soon as my mod stuff arrives I'll finish my case and post it--a 120 and a 140 highlighted.

How is that radiator mounted? I want to put a fan there but I'm out of ideas since I'm not using any screws.

edit, also is it important to have the psu upside down to suck air in from the bottom or is it sufficient for the psu to suck air down from the side 200mm fan?

1. you MUST have the PSU upside down. the 500r bottom fan filter is amazing. you don't want the PSU accumulating dust, and by having it suck in air from a side fan without a filter that exact thing will happen.
2. positive or negative pressure has little effect in this case, especially cuz there are so many openings. instead focus on getting air flowing in 1 direction, and then focus on properly protecting those intakes from dust.

on your two front fans stick this in front of it. in between the fan and the aluminum mesh. REMOVE that usesless plastic mesh. it doesn't do anything
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002GKC2US/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

now with regards to the side fan, you can either have it pointing in and sucking in dust, or have it pointing out. the CFM on it is so small it doesn't change the pressure of your build, so it's just there to get rid of some GPU heat.
again, you DONT want your GPU sucking in dust.

now for the back fan, you can do either one, exhaust or intake, but if you make it an intake sandwitch some of that foam between the fan and the case. the foam is thin enough.

the top 2 fans MUST be exhaust, as hot air rises. if you are pushing down with intake fans from the top you are basically circulating hot air that's already in your case.

This last part.. I always get a little bit OCD and feel like that needs to be disputed whenever I see it. It's wrong. Here is my old case prior to 300R.. same CPU temp as no case at all, with -3C at GPU if I remember correctly.

you can't dispute the basic laws of physics, but then again a case is a more complex system.

I followed that top-exhaust rule myself until I had issues with both sideways and upward pointing mount with my new cooler (RAM clearance and GPU heat).

Thanks to new memory (and the 300R) I can point it backward like I wanted to orginally. And the top is actually a window right now. thumb.gif
