It's not going to have a profound effect, will just keep dust out which is good.
I generally consider sealing the bottom just because of dust snd cat hair. That kitty in my avatar is real menace when it comes to dropping hair.
But, good thing you mentioned Silverstone AP182's as I have been looking into them. Howevever, I think they might go a bit too much over acceptable noise. When it comes to Noctua industrial series, 2x140mm provide same airflow as 3x120. 140mm comes a bit higher pressure and lower combined dB, also, 25€ cheaper as they cost around 25€ a piece.
Also, with filtered top I have second intake there if needed. If need arises, might go with bottom fans before 180mm front. 180mm mod in the front is much simpler, however so it is very tempting option too.
, can u share pics of frontfans? So you control them manually? Am I right if I say you drilled new holes in fan frame, instead of new holes in case?@Works4me
, you seem to use AP181 on front. Care to show few more pictures? Do you control them directly from motherboard?Edited by contay - 2/23/16 at 12:11pm
