Looking at the pics of your cable management make me want to do the same redface.gif

I didn't use the Corsair utility for H100i, instead plugged them straight into the mobo. I heard that when using different fans than the SP120L's the software didn't work well or not at all so thought it easier to just let the mobo do its job. Works absolutely fine smile.gif

My drives right now are only 20-25C in the first place.

Mine were running between 35-45C in my old case with 5 80mm fans.

I suppose I could pull the AF120s off the drive cage and put them on the side, since the 2 stock 120s are cooling my drives pretty well.

So after pulling the two AF120s off and not putting them anywhere, my case is super quiet and my temps didn't change. Well actually my MCP is running cooler than before, CPU a little cooler, and GPU a little cooler. I think I created too much turbulence to use those extra two fans effectively.

Oh well, I suppose I can use them later or sell them or something.

Dang that's a long shipping time. I practically live down the street from Corsair so I got my panel the day after I ordered it biggrin.gif

Honestly, I like the option to add fans later, and my case is always under my desk so no need to really care if the side panel has a cover or not.

Asrock Z77 Extreme6
Intel i7-3770K @ 4.5ghz (+0.005v offset, +0.020v turbo, 1.20v vcore loaded , 79C max on P95, 89C max on IntelBurn)
Cooler Master 212 EVO w/ Noctua NF-F12 fan
2x8GB G.Skill Ares 1866mhz DDR3
256GB OCZ Vector SSD Win8 Boot Drive

Inside of the Corsair 550D case: Asrock Z77 Extreme6 w/ i7-3770K @ 4.5ghz. Cooler Master EVO w/ Noctua NF-F12 fan. 140mm Cougar Vortex exhaust, EVO's fan as a front intake, along with 1 stock fan. 2x8GB G.Skill Ares 1866mhz DDR3. SeaSonic X750 modular powersupply. 256GB OCZ Vector SSD. 2TB WD Green data drive. LiteOn iHBS212 BluRay burner. XFX Nvidia 9800GT (for now). Slot8 is a COM port that I still need. Wish it had a LPT: port too. Red wire on bottom is speaker.
Cooler Master 212 EVO w/ Noctua NF-F12 fan. 140mm Cougar Vortex exhaust. G.Skill Ares 2x8GB 1866mhz DDR3.
The side most don't want you to see. :) Velcro straps that came with the SeaSonic X750 fit the Corsair 550D's tabs perfectly. Rosewill 8pin CPU-power extension allowed routing around the outside instead of across the middle.

A very quiet setup! The CPU may have more overclock left in it... but I think I'm at my thermal limit with this cooler. That's ok... all I really wanted was 4.2ghz... 4.5 is just cake.

Sweet build right there!

I love your cable management, especially in the back.

Nice setups guys. Haven't popped in a bit. Nice to see this case take off.
Maybe compile a list for revision 2?
