My first one was White, and that is very sweet, but the Gunmetal is now my favorite. To me the black is just ... meh. This case will end up replacing my ABS Canyon 965, which was flat black aluminum, so I wanted something a little different. Gunmetal is just different enough.

This thread was great to look through and loved checking out all the build logs.

All of a sudden I'm considering a Maxiumus V Extreme O_o

Bill that is the BEST looking switch I have ever seen!! The paint job is epic and I can tell a lot of time was spent getting the details perfect. Truly a work of art thumb.gif

No matter how you slice it you are gonna get dust. With that said, I would have the 360 sucking the air in from the top, and vented out the back and bottom. This way chances of your fans sucking too much dirt in are not too high.

I disagree, I would have everything but the rear fan as intake. Positive pressure will keep a good amount of dust out of the case to start with. Also, there is little point to having a rad set to exhaust. Why would you push hot air through a rad? Suck clean, cool air in and across the rad, maximizing performance and let the positive pressure do the work of keeping the dust at bay. It is a piece of electronic equipment, get used to dust. Blow it out every so often and call it a day thumb.gif

Agreed, that what you layout is a good setup, my reason for having the bottom as exhaust is depending on where the case is sitting. If you have it up on casters then its all good as you have clearance from the floor which tends to be the one of the most dusty places. One thing I should have mentioned was that switch has some really nice filters in place where you need em the most.

I have never had a computer that ever got to the point of looking dusty inside (laptops apart).

And why push hot air through the rad?, my simple answer without starting a war of words is for some people a couple degree trade off might be worth not having to open the case and blow it out now and then.

No war of words necessary biggrin.gif Even with the bottom or top rad in exhaust, you are going to have dust. If taking the cover off and spending 10 minutes to clean your case out is an issue, I would suggest a new hobby as that is expected. You are correct, it may only equal a few degrees, but why spend the money on a loop to inherently cripple it for no good reason. Just my $.02.

Edit: you are correct that part of the decision lies on where the case will be located. As you mentioned the bottom has a fantastic filter system. It all goes back to maintenance of your system. Clean your filters, clean your case out and a couple times a year clean the loop. Simple insurance for high end components.

If that doesn't work, you have blown LEDs.

Yeah, my LEDs are probably blown. Is there any fix for this, or do you just have to replace them?
