Quick question. Anyone here have any suggestions on how to mount a fan to the bottom of the 400r? Cause anytime I do all I can hear is vibration noise due to the lack rubber noise dampeners

I have a 300r. Was thinking about putting my HDD in one of the 5.25 slots so I can remove the hd cage to get some great airflow for a second 140mm up front. Has anyone tried anything like this? I know they make adapters so it shouldnt be terribly difficult. Planning on running two 140s up front, a 140 on top and the stock 120 on back. Would the HDD suffer from not having direct airflow over them?

Totally didn't read your post.
Yeah, I'm running 4 cathodes and they are really, really bright. Mind you, every fan in the case has 4 LEDs on it so that's adding to the brightness too.
And yes, that is a z77x D3H.

I'm a 300R owner.

My hard disk Seagate 2T 7200 RPM SATA 3 runs pretty cool even without the front fan.
I would say it run only a few degrees cooler with a front 120 mm fan.

You can also add a second fan in the drive cage using zip ties.

Look the pictures in the post #2:

actually bottom don't really need a cooling fan, it wont help much in air flow but collecting dust very fast

I figure I'd throw one in there so I can have it blowing directly on my video card. Plus, it's filtered

Just finished the window modification on my 500R, really pleased with the result!
(Poor picture quality due to my phone, digital camera needs recharging.)

finally took one, replaced some of the stuff with white like the pci covers. i want a full window for this, also when i get hold of a modular psu i will maybe braid the cables white.

thinking of replacing the h80i with an air cooler again, anyone have any ideas for something around £60 (depending on what i would get for that)

all in all not had this case long, it was a choice between the CM HAF XM or this, happy i chose it now biggrin.gif,


-thanks for looking thumb.gif
