What the guy ment is that if you arnt using 3 120mm fans in the front of the case, you are kind of ripping yourself off on airflow, because 3 120mm will perform much better then the stock

That's exactly what I meant. Why would you sacrifice airflow when you can easily get more?

hey...if i get 3 x sp120 for my front intake and my board has 3 fan headers (1 for back and 2 for front stock) can i safely get a y-cable to run the 3 sp120 in front from 2 headers?

ahmm i know this is question has been answered before but i cant seem to find a straight forward answer... i care about the esthetic of my rig,.. i am thinking of getting sp 120 fans and 140 on the exhaust for esthetic ,.. color red and black theme

but my question is which is better sp 120 or af 120 fans?

thanks again and sorry for the questions,.. i am having hard time also on my gpu temp.. at auto fans my gpu 7970 reference card is already @ 85c while playing crysis even @ 65 percent fan speed,..

i have aerocool shark fans 140 at the back and 3 120 deepcool fans color red at the front as in take,.. what can i do to lower my gpu temp

I recently emailed corsair george with the email he left on this thread and another address responded telling me to use support tickets on corsair's site. after a few messages and copies of the scratches on window panel and purchase receipt, i am getting a new panel while being waived for sending back the damaged panel i have. i got my case back in august so corsair's support for this case has been thoroughly easy and pain free.

anyone who has a scratched panel or other problems should contact corsairs rma dept.

and to continue the "jipping" answer: jip is believed to be from the term gypsy. to get jipped is to get tricked, to get less out of something because someone withheld knowledge from you. some ppl think its derogatory to use jip like how some ppl think its derogatory to say things are gay. so, um, be careful and not say it around sensitive ppl lol

i think you are suppose to get sp 120 fans.

the reason could be that sp fans are better at the static pressure thing and from what i remember by reading this thread is that static pressure helps with pulling air or pushing air thru filters. and that helps with performance/cooling. despite af fans being noted for having high airflow the static pressure on the af fans arent good enough to use. whether you ll have a temperature difference between these fans is unknown by me.

your gpu 7970 being kinda hot could probably be helped better in a forum dedicated to 7970 users. i hope you have tried asking in those threads already.

thank you so much for clearing my head haha.. know ill get sp 120 fans and one 140 sp fan,.. can you recommend a good led or lighting for this case?

yes they said that 7970 referecne powercolor is hot by stock.. so maybe there isnt a fix for my high temps..

thank you again bro
