When I look at pictures of your case I see 4 slots in the top half behind screens. How many of those slots are full?

I ask because my case has 3 slots with 2 free. I put the optical drive in the bottom slot and then had just enough room to stick a 120mm fan in on top of it. That fan is blowing straight back at the ram, motherboard and the cpu cooler intake. It does make a difference and I have never understood why all cases are not like that.

I dont have any optical drives so they are all empty. I was looking at a guy that modded his front 600t and removed the whole front panel and made a new front panel with 2 200mm case fans

I was looking at taking out the optical drive bays by drilling out the rivets that hold them in place and looking at where i can add another 200mm case fan for now and make room for future 360 rad in front standing up. will have to see video's on drilling out the rivets and see if i have the tools to do that.thumb.gif

I wanted to get an idea where that limit lies. I have a fairly solid understanding of the normal cpu OC process, and what to expect there.
Just wanted to save that for later, after cooling improvements.

Here's where mine run 24 hr Prime95 stable
