Can't wait to see what Corsair has planned in regards to a side window for the 400R/500R. I'd love a nice big window like the one on the white 600T.

Anyone have recommendations to improve airflow around the GPU? I have a Gigabyte GTX 570 that blows hot air towards the rear of the side panel which doesn't seem to dissipate quickly enough. I would like to cool the card better so the GPU fans don't have to spin as fast and loud, since the sound leaks out quite a bit.

there are mounting points on the drive cages for fans if you want to install the top drive cage with a fan on it that could be an option or you can craft some brackets to mount them directly on the card. if you google air cooled 800D there is an xtremesystems link that has an example of how to mount fans on the cards using the pci slot covers that you have already in the case.

link (sorry ocn just trying to help): http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d-with-Results

ALSO, who in here said the top fans don't have a dust filter? mine clearly has a dust filter and i'm pissed because I spent $18 on filters that I don't need to use.

I'm going to do a full write up on installing everything I had into the case. The fan connectors for the front 2 fans if you switch them out the connector needs to be modified. More to come later tonight when I have time to put the thread together. Pics and install happening now.

UPDATE thread is updated and completed add me to the list!
