I have a question. I have a spin bay res but sometimes it's too noisy (i want my pc to be silent)
Here's my layout
476

Can I add a bitspower Q type connector and two bitspower mini- valve to switch between the two reservoirs?

1) Water goes through both spin bay res and 150 res
586

2) Water just goes through the 150 res
578

Will the water flow backwards to the spin bay res ??

Thanks biggrin.gif:D

Same issue with my mix. NZXT was nice enough to replace it with my choice of fan controller so I have a sentry mesh coming.

I just got my case, and a new water cooling kit to go with it. I got the XSPC Raystorm RX240 kit and was wondering, with only one rad (for now at least) using Push/Pull fans on it....what would be the optimal way to direct the air flow through the rad. Sucking in from the switch vents up top into the case, or pushing out the vents up top. My first thought was to push it out the top...but it kind of seems like the air wouldnt flow all that great out of those vents, and possibly trapping some of that heat at the top....I thought pulling in fresh air would benefit both the rad, and the inside of the case.

Before I put it together I just wanted to know what you guys have done and if you went through the same process and decided if one worked better. And later down the road if I add a second rad on the bottom...would it be best to change the directions ie; pull in from bottom rad, out through top rad?

Thanks for all your suggestions!

Now that I've had this case for a while, it doesn't seem nearly as large any more, but having all the extra space of a full tower is awesome! My case in point: my main SATA drive borked and I had to bust out the trusty ol' IDE drives again temporarily. The only problem is that I didn't have any IDE cables long enough to reach from my RAID card to the hard drive cages. One reason for this case being awesome is because of its flexibility - no worries, I just put the hard drives on top of my power supply. Due to the extra 2 expansion slots, there was room enough between it and my last PCI slot for 2 whole hard drives. biggrin.gif (Never mind the fact that the cables would have been long enough if I was attempting this in a mid-tower case).

WARNING: crappy cell phone pics
WARNING 2: RIBBON cables ahead

Also, I think the dust filters on this case are great as well... definitely one of the strengths of it. However, I couldn't stand for the gaping mesh in the front panel, so I quick cut up some foam to put in there. Wuh lah! Entirely dust-filtered intakes. smile.gif

I've found a few things I'm unhappy about with this case - mostly related to manufacturing methinks, but the longer I have it, the more I realize it was an excellent choice.

Nice! I like the foam you did, it's perfectly fit into place. Just a word of caution, though, that mesh DOES help with the airflow. But if you're not concerned, then neither am I. smile.gif And those are definitely NOT the worst Cell Phone pics I've ever seen.

Yeah, this case has more airflow than I know what to do with for the time being. Not really too worried about it.

I always wanted to cut my front panel because it really helps increase the airflow.

With and without the front panel is about a 0.5C difference. I mean it helps a bit but it's up to you if you want to cut it and make some sort of design out of it biggrin.gif

Very good performance out of the RAM disk, I wasn't expecting much difference between the SSD for games but it does load much faster. In Skyrim when opening new environments it doesn't even have time to show the black loading screen, its just like opening a door in real life.
