Also As I mentioned to you in the email I sent back to you. The fan controller cable (that turns on/off the LED on the fan) is a female connector and most fans (95%) also have a female connector on them. The problem is that we need one end to be male in order to connect the controller cable to the fan?  Do you have some kind of adapter or cable that can convert one end from female to Male?
None of the Fan companys have such an item and I talked to a few of them and they all stated that the LED connection is always a female end.







The glue on the connectors is realy easy to come off. I took all the glue off my connectors and just plugged them in (and they hold in place as they lock in place like standard 3 pin connectors do)

@elemental, thxs for the tip but dont think this will be feasible for me...well it can but I just dont want it lol.
Maybe I should just some more cougars and put them on the side, before i got the tb's I had 2 cougars there, seemed to have work well...they def push more air than the tb's while still be quiet. Hmmmm, guess I'll test some configurations out.

All filters are in place.

I was thinking about cutting out the dust filters on the side door to see if more air will get pulled in from the side. What you guys think? My temps just seem to be a little high (mobo for example got to 50c!!)...I will be swapping out the parts once Ivy Bridge gets here, so maybe I should wait and see how temps look then?

I cut not not only the dust filters, but also the plastic between the cut out aluminum. Much more air. My room isn't dusty so I'll deal with that.

This pc will be running all SSD drives. Not worried about heat on the lower half of the case.

Hmm, I think I am going to cut out the filters...reason is cause I noticed when I was holding the TB's in my hand they were pushing quite a bit of air (not as much as the cougar's but still a good bit). After I mounted them on the part that slides from the side door I put my hand to see how much air they were pushing and it felt like it was cut by 1/2 (this was before even mounting it back on the inside of the door). So I think that is the better way to go.

I don't want to cut the honeycomb plastic it might look tacky. This is my first "High End" case I ever bought, will probably be the last and it will probably be the 1st/last one I ever buy with dust filters.

I am still working on build, still wanna post some pics but my components looks dated compared to everyone's else lol, so I'll wait till after I get a GTX-680 and my Ivy-B parts.

What is everyone's take on the side dust filters? How many people have removed the side dust filters? Is it worth the extra air flow to keep the lower half of the case cooler? Seeing as the top half of the case containing the video card and CPU is separated, no worry about dust getting up there, right?

I personally like having dust filters - I was constantly cleaning dust off my last build and that is just with having it in a bed room that isn't all that dusty. I would much rather just clean dust filters than have to clean components.

Also, it seems that with as many fans as I have running in the Cosmos II that airflow is pretty good with the filters in place and even during stress testing temps have been reasonable.

Of course if you have a really high OC and multiple GPU's you may need the increased airflow.

Great point. Remove filters at your own risk.

I haven't had a noticable amount of dust in my case even since building it, which why I wasn't too concerned with cutting them out.
post #1130 of 6042
Not much dust in my case, but my dust filters are filthy, so i would say keep them, in my case it probably means cleaning them every 2 months.
