You will have to go in from the inside. I'm not in front of the case right now, but from memory, there are some screws on it when you take off the grill, and I think you might need to take off the front panel as well to get to it. It all comes apart. Just got to look around.

In order to remove that panel, you first need to remove the mesh grill beside it. After both grills are remove. you will see three tiny screws where the mesh filter goes. Remove these. Be very careful when reinstalling because the plastic is very thin right there You may even need to remove the other plastic panel that it is connected to. (Where the 3 120MM fan mount is) They do seem to hinge together, but it has been awhile since I've disassembled the case. thumb.gif Hope this helps.

On a side note. Sorry I haven't been more active over here. Life has gotten really busy as of late, and I've been taking on new tasks. Just recently I started a review channel and a gaming channel. While it's been fun, it's been a heck of a challenge to try to keep to a strict upload schedule when I have a baby, 40 hour work week, college, and whatever else my wife decides to drag me into.

I'm currently in the middle of fixing up my laptop. If I get it up and running tonight, I'll make sure and at least update the owner's list. (Hopefully can add all the information I've been meaning to add as well)

Has anyone put a 120-140mm 30mm thick radiator at the back exhaust when using a xt 45 240 on top.

I figured it could fit another 140mm st30 with the fan mounted on the outside of the case in pull.

just installed the Demciflex Filter... are they worth the money?? Hm dunno. Maybe they will reduce the dust problem to a minimum. But ~100$ here in Europe is pretty much money for this...

^^ I've been wondering what those filters looked like all installed, am surprised to see how flexible the frames are. Since I'm planning on intakes for the front & top(rad) with the only fan-powered exhaust being that 140mm on the rear I'd probably only get the top filter and the side (for the PSU).

Thanks for posting those photos, very useful!

What do you think?

I think some of the filter's shouldn't be covering some vents. One next to GPU and one above the back fan. These help with getting hot air out the case.

I agree, anything that is not specifically used as intake should be left to vent out without obstruction.

Yes. If you have positive air pressure in your case. Otherwise those filters would be helpful.
post #5709 of 12526
HI!
Im Chris, I live in Germany near Frankfurt and Im 16 years old. I go to school, so i cant afford that overkill builds like some guys showed here biggrin.gif
I also decided to get an Air 540 and im really happy i did. Its a great case, easy to work with and its just gorgeous biggrin.gif
I first wantet to build a custom loop in it. but the high costs made me get a corsair h105 for cheap 79 € thumbsupsmiley.png
Its my first build, never built a pc before and therefore im pretty happy with the final look of it.

So thats my hardware:
AMD FX 8350 with Corsair h105
Gigabyte 970a-UD3P
GSkill RipjawsX 1866mhz 8gb CL8
Gigabyte R9 270x
60 gb Kingston SSD
1TB WD Blue HDD
500gb Hitachi HDD ( from my old pc)
PSU is still a cheap LC Power 600w from my old PC. Will upgrade it probably in 2 weeks when i got enough money. Do you have maybe any suggestions wich i should get? If possible under 70 €
Lamptron FC5 V2 Fan Controller
Sleeved cables are Bitfenix Alchemy.
Lightning comes from 2 white ccfls and the led fans.
CCFls will be changed to LED flexlights. Hate that ugly converter biggrin.gif
Fans are 3 Enermax TB Apollish in the front.
The rear fan is the af140l, but im waiting for my 140 TB Apollish biggrin.gif
I really like these fans. they are almost silent and the air flow is more than enough for this case.
on the h105 i got the stock sp120l fans.
Cant really decide whether to get NB Eloops or Enermax Twister Pressure. Or maybe the sp 120 quiet editions? i dont know, maybe you can give me some suggestions.
if i forgot something or you didnt understand my ****ty english, tell me biggrin.gif

1 picture is with ccfls and blue led fans on, 1 only with the fans and 1 only with ccfls on. And the last one shows the front with the fancontroller and the Apollishs.

Chris...willkommen.

Low-budget or not, that's a really tasty looking build. Nice one!
