I suppose I might be able to mount the fans pull/pull to clear the optical drive, and the rear fan would act as a rear exhaust up against the back panel. If it didn't work I could throw a H80i or a TT 2.0 or something in there I guess.

Is the Asus that much better than the AsRock? I'm on my 2nd type of AsRock board so far and they have been flawless for me in reliability an OC.

I my oppinion try with the D14, with the pushpull and see if it does fit, and a h80i would be a great choice!

i have 2 prodigys and both of the MOBO is the p8z77-i deluxe, and the Digi+VRM for me makes a big difference for OC'ing i've reached 5 ghz on a 2500k in one of my rigs and in my new build im doing i'm going for the same og higher but again it's a matter of choice if you aren't really gonna OC that much then go for the asrock IMO thumb.gif

Thank you, will have to look into buying one then...
On a side note.. I see a few people on here with the corsair hxxx and the options seem to be:
1) put the rad on top inside the case and the fans directly below it
2) put the rad in the top, outside of case and the fans still below but inside the case still

Now i want the rad in the case still but would like my fans in top but outside.. Is there any drawbacks to this?
I am open to buying 2 more 120mm fans and having the rad inside the top of case with fans attached below but still having 2 fans showing on top outside the case... Is this possible? And is there a certain way if so to config the fans i.e. 2 push, 2 pull etc
Sorry complete noob when it comes to this

ps sorry about the mess, I don't usually have company looking inside my case ! biggrin.gif


That is what I call one hell of a tight fit, nicely done with the D14, but doesnt the 120mm fan scratch against the drive bay?

Sorry complete noob when it comes to this

I have the H100i and I am using 4 fans. The 2 that came with the h100i and 2 white Spectre fans. They are all on pull. The 2 inside the case push the hot air down while the front 230mm pushes it back. the 140mm rear fan exhausts it out. The 2 on top of my case pull hot air away up. Everyone does it different and its all a matter of preference. I hope that helps thumb.gif

Thanks smile.gif
The fan housing is against the drive bay but this doesn't impede the fan.
