Use a "PWM" splitter and you're there. Yes ASUS AI Suite usually sucks but if you can get the fan curve set through the BIOS or better use speedfan and let it control via GPU temps also will be nice.
As for your top intake if you're using just a "air cooled heatsink" just 1 intake above the VRMs is enough.

2.) What would everyone recommend as a fan controller?

I'm looking at either the Lamtron FC2 for $35 or the Lamtron VC5 v3 for $99.
There is much more to cooling than how much air the fans move. You might find links below helpful.

Fan 4 and 5 is where the radiator is. I previously had it setup in a push configuration, but after changing to pull my CPU temps dropped ~ 10c.

cool.. 650D is a great case..
that line -you meant psu cover?
at the very front end..try and make it with a 45° angled slant downwRds so that all 3 front fans push air up /into the setup..that front angled bit will force the bottom
fans air to be pushed more upwards helping with cooling...

mount the ssd at the back bro..it looks alot neater then..hds canbe mounted in the 5" drive bays..just google for hd to 5.25 bay caddies..icydock makes some realy nice ones that has hotswap and ssd mounts..another cool way for xtra drives are docking stations...looks tacky..but works..

post some pics of the current config

So you're saying I should bend the plate at a 45° angle like in this photo following the yellow dotted line? the idea was to have one fan pushing cool air for the hard drives and psu

For me to have 3 x 120 mm fans in the front panel of the 650d i have to actually cut out 3 of the 5.25" bay slots.

Hello Im trying to find the best option for upgrading the cooling of my rig for the least amount of money.

Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-870 @ stock speeds w/ Noctua NH-D14 (2xNF-P14 push/pull. The NF-P12 that came with the cooler is a spare currently)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus III Formula
RAM: 2x2GB G.Skill DDR3-1333, 2x4GB G.Skill DDR3-1600 (oops)
GPU: EVGA GeFroce GTX 570 1.2GB @ stock speeds
PSU: Silverstone Strider 1000w
Storage: 1 Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD, 5 HDDs.
Case: Corsair 600T (all stock fans)
AD900x Headphones (open)

I know I have limited options if I dont want to mod my case so I would be willing to buy a new one (Less than $130 CAD) if I was able to sell my current one. The biggest concerns I have right now are the dust (Ive tried to get a good filter but haven't yet and I know I need positive pressure) and the occasional rattle of the case fans. I would prefer to keep the noise to around the same levels I have now with all fans (minus GPU) at full speed. I've been reading through this thread and it has been enlightening however I'm still not sure on how to approach this upgrade/replacement.

For case selection Id prefer something more lightweight, 1 optical bay, minimum of 5 hdd and 1 ssd bay, lots of cooling options, good quality fan filters that are easy to clean, nice cable management and good ease of use. Currently I have my eyes on the CM690 III, Antec Performance One P280, Phanteks Enthoo and Fractal Arc Midi R2.

Thanks.

curly...yes that's exactly what i meant..from the way your first illustration was it showed 3 front fans
the hds dont get that hot these days...
psu you can turn around so it draws air from the bottom of the case...best way any how..itll have its own air path then and not interfere with the rest of the systems airflo....

phanteks enthoo pro & primo

nzxt switch ( one of my favorites--great options and expansion..good airflo..lots of cable management)not to mention diff colours:thumb:
best home made dust filters _ Womens stockings...but not the thicker kind..the slim and skinny sort...just pull it over the fan and presto..fa dust filter without to much restriction:thumb:

Take a look at what you have.

A case only flows as much air as it's smallest quantity of intake or exhaust airflow..

5 intakes

1 exhaust.

That's easily 4 times as much area pushing air into case as there is area for air to get out of case.

So where is the air from the other 3-4 intakes supposed to exit the case?

Because if that air can't leave the case, it does not enter the case either. The fans are spinning but the air is not flowing into or out of the case.

What comes in must go out / what goes out must come in. wink.gif
