I have seen many people bring up the Dust Filter/Mesh in the front grill. Are these items really necessary, and if anyone has removed them, have you seen a difference in airflow or more dust in your case?

This merely depends on your environment and your question has just prompted me to remove mine, hope these photos help answer your question

Click for bigger image, you know the drill

Note amount of light passing through mesh with filter


Not amount more light passing through mesh without filter


Dust left on filter since I cleaned it last week. fans at 800 rpm intake at all times


Hope this helps

You are awesome! That helps a lot. I might pop off my dust filter and try it out. I live in the middle of the desert, though, which is just awful. I might even pull off the wire mesh grill, and just leave the plastic. Might look funny, I'm not quite sure. I am not finished with my watercooling,I'll post pics with the mesh off and get your guys' opinion.

I've just mounted my Pump in the basement, basically the same location as yours (those pumps are so damn big, that's the only feasible location), although I am mounting my Res on the door, as some other members have posted in the past. My loop will be Res>Pump>240>680SLI>120>CPU>Res. I don't like the length between the CPU and Res, I might switch it up, but in my brain that order makes the most sense. I have heard many times that loop orders do not matter, but I can't help but to test it myself. Ideally, for the least amount of tubing, I should have bought one of those X-Flow Slim Radiators for the front. One port on each side of the Rad makes life so much easier in this case.

But yes, angled fittings saved my life. All of mine were BitsPower, and I had purchased 10 regular, x4 45's and x2 90's, which seems to be just the right amount. A few more 45's wouldn't hurt, though tongue.gif

I'll post some pics when I have everything put together, should be Monday. Still waiting on my damn EK SLI Water Bridge. mad.gif

Cant wait to see it! I was thinking about 680SLI myself but I'm afraid of the lack of radiator surface.. cant wait to see your temps!
I don't see a Build Log anywhere? how about making a thread under Water Cooling or something? tongue.gif take lots of pics! cheers.gif

I'll make one. This computer has migrated from a 650D to the HAF XB, and from a now-broken 660Ti to two of those EVGA 4GB 680's. I bought the EK Full Cover Blocks, so hopefully it'll do well.

I'll make a build log when my lazy self gets back home from work, and I'll link it here.

Hi huys, I have had my case for a few days now and i love it. I have ordered a window top and some red wiring. Can any of you guys recommend a good fan for the gelid gx-7 as i want a red led instead of blue thumb.gif
