Will we see a window for the 500R or the 400R? (or you are not allowed to talk about it?)

Got all my new parts up and running, after several days of drama trying to get windows to work on the new motherboard (which it didn't in the end so I had to re install anyway frown.gif). Looks very nice, I am quite pleased, except for my H100 which is seeming to have the noise issue many units have.

I'm currently building a new PC with a 500R (the rest of the parts arrive on Wednesday) and was just curious as to what you guys thought about extra fan placement. I ordered 2 extra fans to use in my case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553005) and I'm not entirely sure of where I should place them.

For the record, my CPU cooler is a Noctua NH-D14 and my GPU is an ASUS GTX 670 DirectCu II (exhausts air back into the case).

At first I was thinking of putting them in the top for exhaust but I'm a bit worried about it causing me to have negative air pressure as the extra fans are better than the stock ones. The fact that the 3rd intake fan is a 200MM may balance this out but I'm still not entirely sure. There are countless other options as well, involving me replacing the stock fans/moving them to other locations.

Any advice you could provide would be appreciated.

nice fans. I bought them to use on my cpu cooler. anyway, I recommend using those as front intake with these filters that can be bought at frozencpu.com or microcrocenter. it's the best spot for them since you have the cpu cooler down. top exhaust is a waste of time really. if anything, put them or the stock front fans that come with the case on the hard drive bays to increase airflow from front to back onto your gpu.

Doesn't the front panel already have dust filters in it? Also, why is top exhaust a waste of time? I'm planning on removing the top HDD cage to get more air into the case, I don't think intake is going to be an issue.

the fans are very weak and the filters are pretty terrible. it's basically like a small piece was cut out of a screen door and used as a filter. it works to some extent, but the case still fills up with dust quickly. the hard drive area is pretty bad. the side panel also has no filter, so you should look into getting one. as far as removing the top cage, been there, done that and honestly, putting a fan on the top HDD cage is better than simply removing it and hoping those stock fans do better that way. trust me, myself and many others have been there. the top makes more noise than thermal impact and better fans/filters on front make for better airflow and a cleaner case. either way, welcome to the club thumb.gif
