Thanks everyone! He’s pretty happy with the build. biggrin.gif

I'm not too sure, I'll have to ask my friend. I believe you might be right though.

plus one on the question on the fans on h100 are they pushing outwards or inward because i have the same cooling for starters before going for the custom loop... and a question too to other members of OCN which way is more advisable outward or inwards?

We set the push/pull config as exhaust. We already had 570s in SLI and weren't comfortable with pushing the heat from the CPU onto them as intake. From what i've read on here, the consensus is to do intake so you have cold air coming from the outside flow through the radiator rather than warm air from the components flowing upthrough.
I haven’t asked him how his temps were, but his CPU temps were a little high with the H100 and will probably have to reseat.

Plastic 12 year old cases FTW!!!


Looks boss other than like laugh x, for 180, you could have gotten something alot more elegant (yes I regret buying my nzxt...)

Yep, heat rises so having top mounted fans as exhaust makes the most sense. It'll also help the wind tunnel effect. If you turned that fan around and used it as intake, I think it would interfere with your front to back airflow and possibly create hotspots inside your case due to trapped air.

There really isn't that much plastic on the case. The only complaint I had, personally, was that the back panel wasn't formed right and had to be forced to get some of the components in. Other than that the case is very "elegant" and intimidating in person.

Our thoughts exactly. Thanks! thumb.gif

nice theory on the airflow plus rep+ please keep us updated on oc temps i'm interested in the results. some game pc manufacturers use he bottom to top flow too since hot air goes up hop results speak for themself smile.gif

I had the same problem with my HAF X. I thought I had unintentionally bent the steel frame when I had trouble taking off one of the side panels. And I just let it be. I worry that the "gold fingers" on my expansion cards may not be making full contact within their slots, but I haven't noticed any lack of function with my hardware.
The case's top panel has a "dust-filter" under the upper-most metal mesh grill, I think removing it could improve air exhaustion.

We'll try that. Thanks! thumb.gif

I didn't realize there were dust filters on the top.

PC is beautiful, great work. Really really nice I'm sure you will love it. That thing is going to tear up just about anything you throw at it.
