Go with rivets. they are very easy to drill out and you can get a box of rivets at your local hardware store for just a few bucks and a rivet gun for less than 20.

Are PL-PS OK with 3 pins connectors ?
I'l also be replacing the GPU/Top fans, I'm thinking of be quiet Silent wings 2 mid speed or shadow wings mid speed, do they perform well ? Are they quiet enough ?
Thanks !

Anyone ?

I'd like something in the middle biggrin.gif

Seriously, I'm not looking for extreme silence, I'd slightly prefer performance over silence.
The Noiseblocker XL1 I already have are quiet for me (at 12V), but I think they're barely moving any air biggrin.gif
That's why I'm wondering if an XL/PL2 would still be quiet (maybe using the middle position on the cosmos 2 control panel, and using the "high" position only when it's needed)

As I mentionned, I'd like to replace the bottom HDD cage fans, the top fans, GPU fans and maybe the rear fan.
Considering that I know for sure the in/out cfm (no PWM there), I'm wondering about a PWM 140mm rear fan, which would make all my calculations totally useless (if it's not already the case ^^)
I read somewhere that it should be balanced, is that correct ? How do we manage to do that with 1 PWM fan ??

Thanks

Just wanted to ask a question.

In your opinion what is the best setup for airflow.

My graphics card is running hotter than it should be at stock clocks and im trying to narrow possible reasons down.

At the moment i have a Bitfenix 200mm Spectre pro on the front. 2 120mm spectre pros on the GPU intake, a 120mm spectre pro on the rear and the 2 H100 fans on the top.
I also have another 120mm spectre pro on the bottom front, and the 2 original CM fans on the bottom HDD cages.

So its 1 front intake, 2 side gpu vents intake.
1 rear exhaust and 2 top exhaust

as well as in the bottom 2 side intake and 1 bottom front intake

Have no exhaust...

Make everything posi pressure if u can.. only reason to have any exhaust at all is if it is blowing hot air out of a rad.
Having all posi pressure forces are to your hardware.. and the extra air will force it's way out all the cracks and vent holes in the case.

Also my fan set up does very well..

So in your opinion which fans should i swap to intake, the top, or the rear, as the top fans are in a pull config for the H100 rad
post #3380 of 6036
all fans to intake but those on a rad.. that also means the one on the back..

You can get a cover to put on it from frozen cpu i have one.
