Dear sir,
I'm new to building computers. What are those orange glowing wires? My mind is blown. I need to know where I can buy those. Please!!

I was wondering if anyone had a solution for a dust filter for the top of this case. i have my H100i up there and would like to keep my rig as dust free as possible. Its in a pull configuration.



Thanks Teleck

DEMCi is not the best solution, you could make your own out of a chux cloth, works well. Defs wanna keep that rad clean.

Btw, did you manage to make some cooling for the harddrives? Somehow i fail to see in the reviews, how they can be cooled in the 240...

I didn't put any cooling there, but would definitely be possible. It would need some extra cable management to keep the fan blades clear :-) Because all the drive trays are open and the psu is already sucking some air through I don't think you need a fan there until you occupy several drive bays or with high ambient temperatures. Did you have any specific concerns?

Anyway its an option in case it would be needed. The only thing that I noticed is that 2.5 inch bays might be hard to vent through - although they arguably dissipate the least heat.

With building mine, I just focused on the possible 170W dissipation of the GPU and the 84W of the CPU. With the great design of the 240, the drives are at least not in that side of the case. And from what I can see sofar, the drives seem to be a quite stable around +15 over ambient.. The drives are much warmer than the case so the air doesn't seem to hot up there. I may see what a fan does.. I'll let you know if I do.

I dont know, its just that i always somehow actively cooled my harddrives. Even my current case has 2 decks, so the hard drive and psu are more or less separated, but i still cool them with one F8 Pro at least. But maybe its just important for me, because i run it in 24/7 smile.gif I just feel better with my hdd and ssd around, or under 30°C smile.gif

Regarding the 240: Maybe there is a way to put a fan on the drive cage directly... somehow. I saw that a 120mm can be installed besides the PSU, but that just blows on the cables biggrin.gif
