Always have filters on intakes , especially on top , another thing worth trying is going to be using the top one as an exhaust but run your loop so after the top ran it goes through the bottom one and then to our pumps, im just so worried about running hot air through a rad, odds are that air is warmer than the water going through the rad and your actually going to make it worse ( maybe dramatic but it sure wont cool so fast)

For that reason alone I think I'm going to put my top radiator as an exhaust when I finally put my water cooling loop together in 2 weeks time.

I think the positive pressure keeps the internals of the case CLEANER. By forcing so much air in, and only one spot for it to leave, I think the dust all gets blown out the exhaust as well

it keeps it clean for sure , you need filters on the intakes but otherwise the positive pressure leaks out of all the little cracks and holes where dust usually comes in and the dust cant get in against the air blowing out.

Did you notice the video was sponsored by Corsair!

I did all that before watching the video but I sure wished I'd seen it first. I know I've got the older case because I don't have those holes in my optical bay! frown.gif

So I just got this case, but it is awesome!!

My only issue with it is the power led is so bright. When it is blinking in sleep mode it is just so distracting, I can't sleep.rolleyes.gif

That used to happen to me with my old pc.
I always put a hand towel over the light when I slept.
As long as it's not very thin, it should get the job done.

get some paint , like art paint that you could wash off with thinner if you had to and cover it in a thin coat , same color as the LED , it wont affect the color but going through the paint will cut the brightness , just dont use something like a sharpie or even a pen because then theres no turning back ! a marker might work im just worried itl wear off everytime you touch it !

Just get a lower brightness LED. They use the same two pin connections and can easily be replaced by running a new tailed LED to the spot.

Dust is my main reason for putting the top radiator as exhaust, my case is right next to a window and it can get quite dusty. Also, having to take the case outside every two weeks or so to blow it out is annoying. Its winter here now so less dust but heaters are on in the room so temps are just like summer tongue.gif
