Doesn't the side window destroy any airflow to the graphics card?

Depends on how you have your case set up for airflow. I ran a 6970 on air fine in one of mine with a side window. Temps were a little higher as expected, but well within operating ranges. thumb.gif

My 7970 used to reach meltdown level temps with the window panel on, then I switched my front 200mm to exhaust and that helped my case breath a lot better. It still gets too hot for my liking during Heaven bench, touching 90 after a few minutes, but I'm working on a mod to add some intake vent holes to the panel. I think it depends a lot on the type of cooler your gpu uses, the open style windforce cooler on my gigabyte chokes without a clean intake from outside the case.

Hey guys, I'm almost done my build, I'll post pictures soon!

I have one question about the braided cords before I can finish.
The case comes with a USB 3.0 cord, but it looks terrible. Does anyone here know where I could get some red braided USB 3.0 cords that connect to the side panel?

Thanks!

The only way I know to do it is to make them...you can get extensions, but they are similar to the stock one. I'll be putting up a guide on how to do them in my build log tomorrow as I am sleeving today.

Your front fan as exhaust? What does the rest of your fan config look like?

I don't know of anyone selling sleeved usb3 header cables. This thread should give you some ideas if you are bold enough to make some modifications to the cable to sleeve it. http://www.overclock.net/t/1289011/usb-3-0-mb-header-tooooo-big

Also finding a pre-made cable might be tough because it would have to fit the same mount on the side pcb that the stock cable does. If you look you'll see that those plugs are a single piece and mounted on the board not just plugged in. I just do my best to hide that cable...

So on your h100i you have all your 2 fans on top and 2 below rad on intake?
Very noob question, is there a way of telling on the fan which was is push/pull or exhaust/intake?
And have u stayed with stock fans? The sp120L

There is a much simpler way to do it without having to tear apart the connector...I'll do one right now and post a quick guide for you guys...it's uber simple. Give me about 20 minutes...thumb.gif
