Although, may run you a bit to have acrylic etched for you. Idk though.

Yeaa, that would be cool. It would definitely have to be subtle. Maybe in the future..

My temps are cool after 30 minutes so I guess I'm good for now. I was thinking about doing this or other things, but you guys helped me think through it and I got it done. Thanks for your input and suggestions (and you too jlhawn).

You're still going to have dust inside your case because of negative pressure. Try switching the top fan to intake on low speed and see. Should do wonders for your RAM and help CPU temps a bit. This way its not even working hard and the intake fan gets its share of air.

I was just looking for threads on this particular case and noticed I have a similar setup to the OP.

I run the following setup and I"m not completely happy with the temps my system reports.

Front fans(2) IN
Side Fan OUT
Top fans (2) IN
Read fan OUT
CPU Fans (2) OUT (Coolermaster 212 2xfans)

System
AMD FX 4130 @3.8Ghz
Gigabyte 7070 (triple fans Down)
ASUS Motherboard *I forget which model*

Bios reports CPU temps of ~90F
The Cable management is....Less than stellar as I'm just not comfortable shortening cables myself.

I've considered inverting one of the heatsink fans and flipping the Top fan to OUT.
While also flipping the Side panel fan to IN.

Suggestions welcome =)
