Is your bottom card the one running hotter? On the pics, seems like your case is right up on the wall and maybe suffocating it a bit.
No no the bottom one is normal temperature. Top was getting towards 80's and that was with an aggressive fan profile. Very loud... Now that I moved it, much cooler and not any performance loss I can tell.

Yeah, the top card is usually the one that always is a tad warmer. try to increase your positive air pressure to help w/ temps.

I have the high performance sp120 on the way as well as a 230mm bitfenix for the top. Will have push pull on front rad with the sp120, big exhaust up top, and one 120mm fan on back as exhaust. Think that should be good, although I've considered making that giant fan up top intake.

For air cooled setups, have more positive air pressure. I would do the top fan and front fans as intake, and just have the sole rear fan as exhaust.

I'll have pics of the final setup soon. I have to dismantle my old MM case as I have yet to find her a new home (frown.gif).

Did you have the old R4's that had the fan controller attached to each one or the newer ones?

I bought about twenty older ones when SVC.com had them on clearance for like $5. I just hacked the fan controller off, Soldered the controller wires together and boom ran as a 4 pin fan!

I have the three pin ones (led). I had all of them daisy chained w/ hubs and then to a fan controller. For the XB, im using two hubs for two sets of four fans on the rad. the internal fans (top two, front two, and rear) are hooked up to a couple of channels.

My fan controllers 12v crapped out. Its not feeding in the power right and it causes the fans to buzz. Luckily, the 5v works fine and the R4s work great @ 5v. Its actually the lowest level of the fan controller so it worked out great. I have no control but its right at the quiet noise level i want. I usually game at night w/ the headphones so the only audible noise is the pump (mcp 35x). These are the r4s I have:

We have known about this issue with the 140mm outside fans since the first people have got the the case. It's not that big of a deal. Just need to break the plastic tabs off. I think you're the only one out of everybody on here that complained about it. Everyone else just shrugged it off and cut the plastic tabs off. Again, not that big of a deal. A majority of people use only 120mm fans anyways.
