Swapped out my Yate loon white led front fans for some higher static pressure Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1850rpm....


The GT1850's look white on the websites....received them and they are def gray BOOOOO!!!!!! mad.gif
Oh well looks like i will be dying the blades white.

Also took some time to clean up some wiring and remove my makeshift 3.5/2.5 cage underneath.


clean!



This is the old cage. I cut the 2.5" cage and mounted it on top of the dual HDD 3.5" cage.

Replaced it with this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1078_1008&products_id=37128

I ordered two Scythe Gentle Typhoons
2x 3 pin fan extension cables.
4x pack of female fan pins (3 per pack)
the HDD cage
and 2x ModMyToys fan distribution block (3 way block)

shipping was $9.90 for standard...I ordered it around noon Friday and received it Monday (granted the store is in Florida and I live in South Carolina)

And FYI the Cage came in with no damage at all it is a discontinued product not really a scratch and dent...(comes in black too)

Dont know if its possible but i wouldnt mind if the case was a bit (like 2-3 mm) longer...I tried to do a push pull config but cant mount a fan on the left inside coz of my GPU...if i had 2mm more it would fit perfect.

Also, for positive pressure I feel I should skip the 80mm fans because I don't want the exhaust current (2x80 and 120) to be greater than the inject current (2x120). Is my intuition correct?

Including a flush mount psu bracket for those of us with non huge psu's would have been really nice. The psu sticking out with a quarter of the 120mm fan that most psu's uses being covered up by the case while using the extended psu bracket is honestly, utterly stupid.

The clearance to allow the psu to slide through the psu opening is also wwaaaay to tighten and results in scratching our expensive psu's while installing them. The psu antivibration foam doesn't help this problem either and makes sliding the psu through the opening a real chore.

The front bezel that "acts" like a removable dust filter is a total joke CM rep. Having a slide out removable filter like Silverstone cases do is the proper and correct way way to provide and market a removable filter. Removing the entire damn front case bezel is NOT. Needless to say, I use swifter dusters and my dust blower rather then remove my front benzel all the time.

And yes, ditch the mostly useless and unreliable hot swap bays and give people standard 3.5 slots so the data and HDD hoarders will shut up already. Be sure also give the new bay antivibration reduction tools like bungie cords or really nice silicon grommets.

How economically viable would it be to make a metal sleeve for the psu that could slide out of the psu bay and then let the user screw it in at the distance they want? It would let users with long psu's push the unit out further and let others keep it flush with the back of the case. It would look like the adapter that's already in place, but longer and without that vertical tabs in place. You could keep the foam in place in the case itself to help prevent vibration, ventilate the bottom of the sleeve for airflow, and just drill a few holes in the bottom of the case for the screw to go through.
