1) Is it worth taking out the drive cages and putting the HDD/SDDs in the optical bay to get better airflow from the front intakes? Looks like they add a lot of resistance up front...or just get some good static pressure fans?

2) Should I get a fan controller for this case, and/or how should I orient the fans? Getting the ASRock Extreme4 mobo and it has 2 PWM plus 4 3pin headers. I plan on lots of fans, probably 7-9. Is it worth regulating fans over running them 100% all the time? Any suggestions are welcome about fan know-how. Never dealt with so many fans in a case, regulating them sounds like a good idea.

3) I was looking at the Corsair TX750 V2 PSU. It's non-modular, would that be an issue? I'd like enough space for spare cables behind the mobo. On a budget here, don't wanna spend a lot on modular.

4) What fans would you recommend? Any recommendations are welcome, but I was looking at the Corsair Air Series fans and Cougar Vortex fans. I'm leaning towards the Cougars. High CFM, low dB.

Any other system recommendations? Thanks to those who help! Appreciate it.

some users have put the ssd behind the back panel where all your wires will be.
I have 2 static pressure Noctuas behind the front cover for intake as the filter in front makes it hard for a standard fan too push air through.
theres room for extra cables in back but if you can afford it try too get a semi modular psu.
the Corsair SP fans were too loud for me, I have a Cougar for rear exhaust and a Cougar mounted inside for my 2 video cards and 2 Noctua 140mm on top for exhaust.
I removed my top hdd cage for air flow.
all my fans run at max speed.

heres a pic of my fan setup but the 2 front Noctuas are hidden.

1) I havent done testing yet but according to most people, taking out 1 cage seems to be the best option. Right now I have two corsair quiet fans in front and I left the stocks where they are. Good temps all around so I probably wont change.

2) I have the extreme6 and the fan controller from the software sucks. I wish it was like the Asus Suite II which can allow you to setup fan curves. If you want a controller by all means but I don't think running them 100% will kill them. Wear them out faster for sure but I can't answer that one

3) No it wont make a difference really. Its more for just appearance and how tidey you want to get it. I'd get a semi if you could but don't worry about it if its out of the budget.

4) I was looking at the cougars too but I ended up going with the corsair quiets just to keep the corsair theme going. The cougars probably have better performance though.

drool.gif I myself haven't gotten into completely fitting an engine but looks really nice. tongue.gif I went to a drag race a while back and I see these cars whose entire front view is completely obstructed from basically huge blocks of engine in their faces...

I haven't really owned a car with a block but how's the law for that? Will they arrest you or ticket you for having something like that obstructing the view? I shift probably at around 2500 - 3000 rpm on my car, its got one of them flappy-paddle gearboxes so it's not a clutch. Not too bad though, I like it.

my car is not street legal it has slicks, lexan windows etc, i have a trailer too tow it too the track, and yes if you had a car on the street with a scoop that blocks just a little bit of your view they will ticket you. here in Washington state if you have too much stuff hanging from your rear view mirror they will ticket you but I don't hang stuff from mine anyways

Well I don't like those tacky things anyway, I like the car by itself. tongue.gif I think the only thing I added is a farther-ranged garage opener and some cables for my phone. Yea, that's what I thought, I got ticketed for having too tinted of windows... I still keep them on, I don't really care if I get ticketed for something that keeps my privacy intact. I mean, really? What happens if I have some valuables in the car and people want to steal it because they see it... Whatever.

Lexan windows? Wouldn't that be too prone to cracking and bursting into your face cutting it up in 100 different places?
