thank you and have a great day!

It's great with good fans and the HDD cages taken out. They totally kill airflow.

As good as any of the best cases. Changing the fans in my case dropped the temps of my GTX 690 by 10deg.

Same question.

I have been looking at this case and following this thread to keep a tab on it. I will be doing air cooling also, and will be using 4 hard drives. So what is the problem with the hdd cage. Would it be possible to strip down the metal on the cage for better air flow.

I had been working on a clear side window but once it was complete I tore off the protective film to find a lot of scratches I wasn't happy about, so I just used the stock one for now. Maybe I'll try buff some of the scratches out but we'll see. Wish Corsair would make an official replacement window biggrin.gif. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That looks good. Welcome to the club! I hope you enjoy your case. thumb.gif

The stock fans somewhat OK. There's little to no difference on GPU temp between running it in open space & in the case (with one of the front fans blow air directly to GPU). I recommend replacing them with better fans, for example Noctua NF-P12-1300 or Scythe "GentleTyphoon" 120 mm (500 rpm, 800 rpm, 1150 rpm, 1450 rpm & 1850 rpm). Fitting two 120mm fans at the top is good idea & will help cooling too. FYI, the stock exhaust fan at the rear can go up to max ~2200 RPM & the two fans at the front can go up to max ~1100 RPM. However I don't know their CFM rating.

EDIT: You also can improved intake at the front by putting two 120mm fans in the front cover & removed the air filter. There are two HDD bays with each can fit 3 x 3.5" HDD. You might want put your HDD(s) in bottom bay only because they can hurt air flow. You want the top bay empty for better air flow. So, if you have more than 3 x HDDs, you might want to put them in optical drive bay.

Yes that would be fine, but what are you running, water cooling? You might want a front one for hdd cooling.,

i meant that i might not go with water cooling and all of those are just fans. i was just planning on it just being strictly air cooled and was wondering if the case itself had good air flow.

i plan on using either: 3770 or 3820 with a gtx 680 for this desktop.

what fan setups do you guys do? ive seen so far:

2 exhaust top
1 exhaust back
2 intake front
2 intake inside (attached to hdd bays)
2 intake side

would this be a good setup?


and how come a lot of you dont have fans on the side panel. is that just aesthetics? or is it bad to have airflow from there? or is it just not needed because the case is good?

i see i see. i only have one jumbo ssd actually. i dont use much space i just play games and surf the net. i was thinking just placing the ssd somehow on the 5.25 drive bays and taking out all the hdds and placing a fan going intake on the floor instead. would this be a good idea?

Placing additional intake fan(s) on the floor will be good idea too. Removing the HDD bays also will eliminate any resistance & air flow will be much better (2 x intake fans at the front).

Using cougar vortex fans. Best performance for sub 20db I can find. 120mm intakes front inside the bezel (don't remove dust cover), 120mm PWM version exhaust back attached to motherboard and set it up same as CPU fan (slow when CPU temp low, then fast when heats up), 140mm exhaust top.

Removed all HDD cages and put SSDs behind case with cables and mechanical HDD in optical bay. The time of assembling your HDDs in the optical bays out weighs the air flow loss of using the HDD cages ten fold so I'd throw them away.

I'm also using a custom watercooling loop.

well, it has got good set up, you could use a static pressure x2 in the front and x2 in the hard drive cage, then 2 more fans if you like on the underneath, not essiantial though, then this will easily cool the 680, if your planning on using side mount fans that will help, but where i would change your set up, is by putting the 1 rear exhaust fan as an intake and onloy keeping thr top 2 fans as exhaustsa, therefore you crerate a strong positive pressure in the case. 3 exhausts really is overkill and yehj its a good airflow case - relativley.
