I took the fans off the HD chassis and put them on the side panel along with some Silverstone FF121 120mm Fan Grille. Dust filters are a must where I live so its not something I can avoid using. I added two High Static Pressure 120mm fans to the front of the case as intake. My temps at idle are 31 on my GPU (GTX 970) with the fan at 25% and at about 40 underload with fans at 40%. Cooling isn't an issue, but the ability to add more fans is where my question comes in..

As far fan setups, what were your sweet spots? I'm considering removing the HD chassis and loading my drives into my optical bays....

Any input is appreciated.

Get rid of the HDD cages if possible 2 front intakes and a rear exhaust would work good for an air cooled rig.

For water cooling maybe 3 intakes (2 front 1 floor) and 2 exhaust (top) would work best.

But of course both of these recommendations are just what I found when I had the case and your results may vary.

All the main components are in now and cables are routed, just waiting on all the water cooling components to arrive which should take 1-2 weeks. Loving this case so far. Installation was a breeze and everything fit perfectly into place. Lots of good options for cable management as well.

I'll be sure to post some higher quality photos of the finished build.

Just picked this case up at a garage sale for $30. Came with a 750w OCZ Fatality edition PSU, Gigabyte socket 1155 motherboard (no ram or CPU), an MSI 660 ti Twin Frozr GPU and a thermaltake water 2.0 CPU cooler.

I put the GPU in the GFs PC as it's a slight upgrade and I plan to use the case to replace my current but want to make it look better. It's the military green.

Any companies that do military themed add-ons for cases??

Hello!

I just joined to the forums and wanted to post some pics of my rig since I upgraded it recently and I want to get some opinions.









Kind regards and happy new year

Those hard drive cages are pretty restrictive, if take the top one out you'll get better airflow to your GPU. Even better would be to put your HDD in the 5.25 bay.

Well, I actually thought on that first, but then I realized that if I got 4 of these SP120 high pressure fans installed just before and after the cages, airflow wouldn't be a problem there. Also, I'm having good temps so far, but thanks a lot for that suggestion!

I'll try to move the drives to the 5.25" bays the next time I open up the case, since I have to do some cable management improvements. Thanks for your suggestions guys!

Anyone have any ideas on how to paint around the front I/O on this case? I cant think of a way to tape it up without getting paint on the power and reset buttons. I want to do a themed ROG colored paint job nice and reb and black but i got the military green version years ago so the whole thing is going to be getting a paint job.

Take it off the case and take the circuit board out
