Should I take out the bottom or top HDD case for more airflow?

To improve your build, the only thing you could do is have your cables sleeved or do it yourself, possibly cover op the blue connecters of your power supply and remove the HDD bays and mount your SSD against the motherboardtray possibly with a cover or something. Also you could replace the rear fan with a AF120 to match the other. But that's your decision, it is already a really nice build! If you decide to change anything, please send me a link to the build log. biggrin.gif

I agree with what the other guys have said. Install an AF140 in the back with the white ring and that'll look tasty.

Also where are the rest of the clips off your 5.25" bays? I'm picky but I'd put those back on so everything matches. Definitely remove both drive bays and install your SSD's somewhere else.

Get rid of the optical drive and get a USB one, unless you use it frequently. How often do you actually use an Optical drive these days? Plus it will clear up some of the cable clutter.

Also, take that stuff off the top of your case, you're blocking airflow on your H100i.

Otherwise looking great!!

Thanks for the comment, I took off the clips for the 5.25 bays because I wanted to mount an SSD where the clips were but I failed sadsmiley.gif. I kind of broke off the mounting screws when I bent it.

Sorry but I'm kind of new on the terms, what did you mean by sleeving the cables? Aren't they sleeved already? About the AF120 fan, would the AF120 LED version work? Where and how can I mount the SSD's to the motherboard tray?

The SSD's could be mounted by drilling holes, or just stick them on with velcro.



I guess an AF120 Led fan would working as well.

As for sleeving: A lot of people do custom sleeving because they don't like the way it looks when stock:

Hey folks, had this case for just under a year now. My GPU started to get into the mid 70's last night whilst playing BF4, just wondering what sort of temps you guys get? I don't think I've had it go this warm since my old Coolmaster Silencio (which was albeit a very warm case)

I've got 6AF120s in the case, 2 front, 1 top, 1 side, 1 bottom and 1 at the rear. All of which are constantly on full power. Got an Arctic Cooler 13PRO on the CPU and a Gigabyte WindForce GTX670. The case is well ventilated, have it backwards away from the wall to allow air to flow where ever it likes. I play at 2560x1440.

Any suggestions?

the hottest I have seen my MSI Twin Frozr GTX 760 is about 60degrees celsius.. and that is under full load during a stress test... normal everyday gaming.. somewhere between 40s and mid 50s.. and i run every game on highest settings.. and my res is 1600x900 on both screens... you may take a look at the heatsink on your card.. it could just be dirty.. the fans too.. get some of that compressed air in a can and blow it off.. also.. depending on what card you have and how new it is etc. you may be able to get a program from the manufacturer that will help you monitor and tweak settings a bit

hello everyone
I am very pleased to be with you and share with you my little configuration.
I still miss the graphics card, and I am now in confusion to choose between NVIDIA and AMD.
I was able to overclock my cpu up to 4.6 ghz with 1.5v 1.75V but I have not been able to go further because I use the integrated gpu.
here are some pictures that you think?
