Now I use 30mm castors instead of 40mm. This makes total height increase about 43-45mm so it will fit under most desks. wink.gif

i remember looking at this thread ages ago , really like the idea with the castors did you not post a diagram to make it with measurments etc earlier in thread ?? i tried searching but this thread is huge

I think I did.

Can anyone recommend some lighting for my build? I've never installed lights in a case before and not sure exactly what would fit nicely in here and accent the parts.

I would just buy some RGB LEDs if I were you, hook the power to 12v molex and put the receiver in the basement

I honestly don't know. I have fixtures made that I use to cut and machine the material when I make them. About the only measurement I use is what width I cut the material. Without looking at my marks on the wall I believe it is 38mm, but even that is checked to be sure the width fits perfectly into the corner lap-joint milling.

But it is of little consequence as long as system runs cool enough .. and with the overkill you have it should be running cool enough. tongue.gif

At a guess, front and bottom are intake with top exhaust?

There is a 240mm radiator with fans in push on the right side acting as intake as well, yes top is the exhaust.

Hi guys playing around with my luxe fans and have a question.
At the moment I have it set up 2 140mm fans front 1 bottom as intake, 1 140 rear exh and h240x top exhaust gpu is aftermarket dc2.
So I want to put the psu cover back in which will make the bottom fan not effective so was wondering how much that would effect gpu temps and if adding a fan to the h/d would help ?
Thanks in advance

With 3x 140mm intakes and 2x 140mm on radiator as exhaust, and back exhaust fan I'm betting air is leaking ieaking in, not out .. meaning dust is getting in. I would unplug the back exhaust.

There are far so many acronyms flying around I can't keep up. 'dc2' means nothing to me .. and I'm not wasting my time trying to figure out what you didn't take a extra 2 seconds to give the full name of. tongue.gif

It seems you have at least a little knowledge of airflow. If you know my name you know I'm the 'airflow rev' .. always preaching about it. Best way to find out how well your system is flowing air is not by number of fans, but by monitoring the air temp going into components is compared to room .. especially under heavy sustained load. "Ways to Better Cooling' link in my sig, 2nd post is simple low cost way to do this. 5th post is basic guide to case airflow. If I had a nickel for every time I've typed that ... rolleyes.gif
